    2. A palm reader jewelry stand that'll give all their baubles a mystical place to call home. Plus, they may actually learn a thing or two about the art of reading head lines and heart lines.

    3. A handy AeroPress device that uses total immersion and pressure to make rich coffee and espresso shots. It's super portable, so they can be their own barista in the great outdoors or at work. It takes under a minute to press coffee and can make up to four cups at a time.

    4. A waterproof writing set for all their field notes. It can withstand water, sweat, grease, and mud, so they can use it even when the elements aren't in their favour.

    5. A celestial One Line a Day journal that'll take them a whole five years to complete. Now all their most treasured mems will be conveniently kept in one written time capsule.

    6. A divided lasagne pan so that they can make three different pasta recipes and only end up with one dirty pan. If they're the type of person who loves cooking, but hate washing dishes, they need this in their life.

    7. A Super Mario chess set that's great for any kid (or grown-up kid) in your life. Now they may actually peel their eyes away from their screen and play a game with you IRL.

    8. An eight-piece set of Sailor Moon-inspired makeup brushes to help them contour, buff, and blend their makeup to perfection. They're super cute, so they'll definitely want to keep them displayed on their vanity.

    9. A pack of gold under eye patches that are infused with rose oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to soothe and moisturize skin. They're the perfect lil' gift for any beauty junkie on your list.

    10. A mini animal-shaped diffuser and humidifier that does the job of a candle, but is a whole lot cuter. Don't forget to add a set of essential oils to help set the mood.

    11. A personal library kit that any bookworm will appreciate. It'll help them channel their inner librarian and keep track of all the titles in their collection, so their most precious novels never go MIA.

    12. A brass clothespin photo hanger that they can clip all their favourite pictures to. Now they won't have to plaster their walls in tape for a stellar photo display and they can swap them out whenever they want.

    13. A scratch-off map for the nomad who just can't stop jetsetting. This will remind them exactly where they've been (and where they still have left to go).

    14. A set of robot salt and pepper shakers that actually wind up and waddle across tables. Every meal is about to get a lot more enjoyable with these bad boys around.

    15. A deck of Music Oracles cards that'll gift them with some serious words of wisdom inspired by greats like Joni Mitchell, Prince, and Shakira when they're stuck in a creative rut. They're also just really pretty.

    16. A bottle decapitator, because cracking open beers shouldn't take a lot of elbow grease. It uses a magnet to hold the cap in place, so they'll be able to pop it off in one try.

    17. A Tile Slim Bluetooth tracker, if all of their things are constantly going MIA. This model is thin enough to slide into a wallet and will help track down their lost item in seconds.

    18. A breakfast sandwich maker that'll make crafting an epic breakfast sandwich easier and faster than going to a drive-thru. The instructions are simple: pile in the ingredients, let them cook for a few minutes, then slide out the plates to assemble the sammy.

    19. A set of backyard birding cards that's perfect for avian enthusiasts. Each card includes illustrations and info on the habitat, behavior, and voice of each bird so that they can suss out who's been hanging around their birdfeeder.

    20. A modern fish hotel that will make their pet's home the envy of all the other fish in the sea. They can purchase more and stack units on top of each other to create a aquarium condo if they want to expand their family.

    21. A genius cotton apron with cooking guidelines, a conversion table, and a measuring table etched right onto it. They'll never have to consult Google mid-recipe ever again because they'll be wearing all the info they need.

    22. A cast iron tortilla press that'll give their Taco Tuesday celebrations a serious upgrade. Reviewers love how heavy-duty it is, and recommend using parchment paper to keep the station from getting gunked up.

    23. A mini donut maker that bakes seven donuts in less time than it takes to get to get to Tim Horton's. This handy appliance will add a little sweetness to their boring breakfast with barely any extra work.

    24. A set of zombie tarot cards that'll help them predict what's coming for them (despite the look of the cards, it's probably not the apocalypse). The set includes a guidebook, so they don't have to be a seasoned pro to use it.

    25. A talking Bob Ross bobblehead that'll bring The Joy of Painting to their life. Their desk situation will be far from dull with this little addition.

    26. A scratch-off movie bucket list that'll turn them into a full-fledged cinema buff upon completion. They've probably already seen a handful, so they can start scratching off titles as soon as they receive it.

    27. A snowflake pancake pan that makes uniform stacks so you can capture some serious #foodporn. It makes seven at a time, so you can fill a brunch spread in just a few batches.

    28. And finally, a plush tortilla blanket that'll make them feel like a toasty lil' burrito on even the coldest of days. Reviewers say it's super soft, so they'll probably be living in this all winter long.
