    1. This massive Free People scrunchie that's hella cute and will keep your hair from turning into a tangled mess while you sleep. It'll also elevate the look of any messy bun, so you can look kind of put together, even on your laziest days.

    "At first I just loved it because it was so pretty — it is the perfect intersection of sophisticated and juuuust a lil' extra — but I've noticed it's actually been great for keeping my hair from tangling overnight. Not only that, but it's a quick fix on days when I'm not really feeling my hair at all. Suddenly that sloppy bun I shove my hair in before planting myself at my laptop all day is ~avant garde~." —Emma Lord (you can read her whole review here)

    Get it in rust colour on Free People Canada for $16.68.

    2. A grip case for your Nintendo Switch Lite that'll make holding your device for hours on end a little more comfortable. It'll also cushion your Switch, in case you drop it (or throw it across the room in a fit of rage when the price of turnips plummets on Animal Crossing).

    Megan Paolone / Via BuzzFeed

    "Over the last month and a half, my sensitive, rosacea-breakout-prone skin has been drinking this stuff right up. I put it on at night post-toner and pre-moisturizer, and in the morning before my moisturizer and under BB cream. My one complaint is that it feels sticky for two or three seconds before it starts sinking in, but once it does, man, you can feel the moisture." —Megan Paolone

    Get it on SkinStore for $9 or Sephora Canada for $6.80.

    22. A bottle of ultra-hydrating Mario Badescu facial mist that'll make you feel awake and alive in just a few spritzes. It'll also save your skin from dryness, because it's packed it with nourishing herbs and oils.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    "It's cool and refreshing, aka the perfect wake-up call for my drooping eyes and fading brain cells. It also makes my skin look the slightest bit more dewy, and, very importantly, doesn't irritate my skin. But in all honesty, why would it? It has soothing ingredients like aloe vera, bladderwrack (yep, that's a thing), gardenia, rose, and thyme. It almost sounds like one of those hyper-healthy smoothies I never drink. The nozzle distributes the product really evenly and finely, which, as silly as it is to point out, is not the case for all spray bottles! I use this to give my skin some pep literally any time of the day, and sometimes even to set my makeup if I'm just wearing concealer. It's always mist o'clock somewhere! 💨" —Sarah Han

    Get it on Anthropologie for $12 USD or in a smaller size on Sephora Canada for $11.

    23. And finally, a Stasher reusable silicone bag that'll help you minimize plastic waste and keep your prepped snacks or ingredients in one place. They're leakproof and can be used in the freezer, microwave, and even the oven (up to 400°F).

    Simons / Via, Simons / Via

    "I recently ran out of plastic sandwich bags which lead to a discussion between my husband and I if we even really needed them in the house at all. We decided we did NOT and chose to try out reusable Stasher silicone snack bagsinstead. They've been great! They're super easy to clean, come in fun colors, and feature a really tight pinch-lock seal, so snacks stay fresh. We're definitely going to buy the sandwich bags as well. Welcoooooome to a plastic-free 2020!" —Heather Braga

    Get a sandwich-sized bag on Simons for $11.99. Also available in itty bitty sizes.
