    We love them and you probably will, too!

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An exfoliating back loofah with handles that will probably be your new BFF if you're struggling with acne on your back or bumps on your booty. It helps get at hard-to-reach places and gives a great scrub without being too scratchy.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I bought this because it's summer and I, like most people, get sweaty when the temperature rises. I didn't want my dreaded teenage back acne to return because I missed a few spots in the shower, so I bought this baby. It helps me reach all those places I can't get on my own and now I don't have to enlist the help of my partner to make sure my pores go unclogged." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $12.99.

    2. A pair of pet grooming gloves that’ll trick your four-legged friend into thinking they're getting a massage, when you’re actually de-shedding them. If you want to give your dog a real spa experience, throw them on while you’re giving them a bath.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.99+. Also available in red.

    3. A hair finishing stick and cream that'll keep your wildest flyaways in place. It's like a mascara wand, but instead of combing through your lashes, it slicks your stray baby hairs down (without making them look greasy).

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    "That's my hair right there! As you can see, it really picks up all of the annoyingly too-short hairs near the nape of my neck that I can't gather into a high ponytail or bun. (Don't mind the remaining front-framing wispies in the "after" photo — those are there on purpose!) There is one main caveat though: I only use it if I know I'll be washing my hair either that night or the next, since it does still ~stiffen~ the areas of hair I use it on — but it's better than hairspray, in my opinion. Some reviewers say that they can just brush the gel out, but I'd prefer to just wash it out." —Sarah Han

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.99.

    4. A set of gigantic cube and sphere ice moulds that will keep your cocktails and iced beverages extra frosty, and look cool doing it. They melt slower than smaller cubes, so you won't end up sipping on a watered-down, diluted drink.

    Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

    "I've gotten into a handful of new hobbies during quarantine, but above all, I've become obsessed with making cocktails at home. Unlike normal ice cubes that quickly melt and leave your drink tasting watered down, these giant ice cubes keep your cocktail delightfully cold, and they remain intact while you sip. The square moulds take about two seconds to fill up and place in the freezer. The spherical cubes take a little bit more finesse in order to make them perfectly shaped, but the set comes with a funnel to make filling them up easier. Because the moilds are made of flexible silicone, the giant ice cubes quickly come right out with no fuss. From negronis to margaritas and everything in between, these simple ice cube moulds instantly make my cocktail creations taste better. And not to mention the jumbo ice cubes make any basic DIY drink look fancier too." —Hannah Loewentheil (check out her full ice cube tray review)

    Get a set of two on Amazon Canada for $29.98.

    5. A tub of fragrance-free, hypoallergenic CeraVe moisturizer that'll save your skin from feeling drier than the Sahara Desert. It's packed with hyaluronic acid and will help restore and maintain your skin's natural protective barrier.

    Marquaysa Battle / Via BuzzFeed

    "Since the spring, I've been dealing with stress acne that I never had before in my life. I resorted to an acne cleanser and spot treatment, but those products are typically drying (because they're literally meant to dry out the blemishes) SO this moisturizer has been super key for ensuring my skin doesn't dry out while I try to clear up the pimples. Aside from it living up to its 24-hour hydration promise (game-changer), it has also never broken out my sensitive skin and actually helps soothe the many skin irritations that I experience. In short, it's my holy grail and CeraVe better not ever stop making it. 😊" —Marquaysa Battle

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.99. Also available in a travel-sized tube.

    6. An itty bitty chopping device that minces garlic by rolling it back and forth, so it's actually kind of fun to use (like, you could defs enlist a kid to do it).

    Adam Davis / BuzzFeed

    "With this chopper, I don't have to worry about whether or not my knife skills are up to par — I can simply insert cloves of garlic and roll the contraption back and forth on the counter. It's as exhilarating as when you used to play with toy cars as a child, but with an added level of utility. You just keep rolling until the garlic is at its optimal size. Sometimes I roll for a few extra seconds because I am, apparently, that easily entertained." —Adam Davis

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.59+. Available in three sizes.

    7. A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sheets that'll make cleaning up messes in hard-to-reach places a lot easier. They're more flexible than the OG Magic Eraser, meaning you can get them into tinier nooks and crannies.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed, Amazon / Via

    "These Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sheets are my favourite cleaning product at the moment (and possibly of all time). They're great for messes in microwaves, stoves, bathrooms, and pretty much everywhere else in your home. I recently dyed my hair and, because I'm messy, got splotches all over my sink, floor, and walls. You know what helped me get rid of all those unwanted marks? One of these babies." —Alice Prendergast

    Get a pack of eight on Amazon Canada $2.97. Also available in a pack of 16.

    8. A Garnier pomegranate face mask that'll prevent moisture loss throughout the day and will make your skin softer than a baby's booty. Welcome to hydration station, friend.

    Kaysey Davis / Via BuzzFeed

    "I have oily/combination skin, so my cheeks and chin tend to be drier than the T-zone. I love using the Pomegranate sheet mask to boost the moisture levels in my skin, but all the different types of masks are equal when it comes to hydration. I can just sit back and relax while my skin soaks up all the liquid goodness. Even after I remove the mask, there is so much product left on my skin and in the package that I use it the excess serum on my neck. I can immediately see brighter, smoother, and more hydrated skin after just 15 minutes on my face. I use them a couple times a week before I go to bed, so I wake up with my skin at its best." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $2.98.

    9. A tried-and-true Crock-Pot that'll make meal prepping a total breeze. You just throw in all your ingredients, set the timer, and let it do its thing. Oh, and if you hate scrubbing your devices, you can always purchase slow cooker liners to make cleanup a little easier.

    A person holding their Crock-Pot up in their kitchen
    Rachel Dunkel / Via BuzzFeed

    "Slow cooking is inarguably the best kind of cooking, BUT making time to dote on a bubbling dish on the stove all day is just...not it. The Crock-Pot allows you to dump in all of your ingredients in the morning, go about your business all day, and then sit down to the most amazing meal you've ever made eight hours later after barely lifting a finger." —Rachel Dunkel (read her full review here)

    Get a four-quart version on Amazon Canada for $43.09+. Available in three colours and three sizes.

    10. A polka dot dress that you can easily dress up or down. It's flowy enough to help you beat the summer heat, but can be worn through fall and winter with the addition of tights or leggings.

    A person wearing the dress in front of a garden
    BuzzFeed / Alexandra Napoli

    "It's very cozy and falls right to my knees so I get enough coverage (AKA appropriate for work). It has a looser fit so I feel very comfortable throughout the day. It's also light so I really never overheat in it. You can definitely wear it on a summer day and not feel like you're swimming in your own sweat (even with the sleeves). When fall hits, I plan to pair it with a pair of booties or possibly a vest, but until then, I've worn it multiple times this summer. BTW – the colour red is vibrant! Not like, overly vibrant where you need to shield your eyes, but definitely a brighter red. Not to worry though, I got a ton of compliments the first time I wore it. Everyone on my team was so excited that I bought this popular Amazon dress and trust me for the price, it is worth it!" —Alexandra Napoli

    Get it from Amazon for $25.11+. Available in seven colours and sizes S–XL.

    11. A bottle of stain and odour eliminator that'll get rid of pet messes and smells in just a few spritzes, so your home stays fresh 'n' clean. It works on pee, poop, vomit, and pretty much every other gross thing your pet does.

    A bottle of odor destroyer being held up in front of a sleeping puppy
    Amazon / Via

    "I've been fostering a puppy and this has really helped manage the messes she makes around the house. She's peed on the couch and carpeted stairs a few times and this stuff is a real and true lifesaver. It leaves everything smelling fresh and eliminates dark circles around accidents, too." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.97. Available in three scents.

    12. A jewelry tree that'll keep your precious baubles untangled and in one place. It even has holes punched into one of the branches to save your dangly earrings from getting knotted together.

    The jewelry tree full of bracelets, necklaces, and earrings
    BuzzFeed / Sam Wieder

    "Up until a few weeks ago, I kept my jewelry in a small little jewelry box, and every time I would go to grab a necklace or a bracelet, I almost always had to spend extra time untangling it. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this jewelry tree, but it was cheaper than some of the other options I was considering, so I decided to take a chance, and I'm SO glad I did. Setting it up was really simple, and it looks SO NICE on my dresser. I'm able to see my jewelry right in front of me, and I don't have to untangle my necklaces just to get to them. I absolutely adore it!" —Sam Wieder

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.99.

    13. A four-level shoe rack that'll keep your entryway from becoming a sea of chaos whenever you have company. If you need space for taller boots, you can easily remove one of the levels, so that everything fits.

    The four-tier shoe rack with four pairs of shoes on each shelf
    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    "I actually don't remember how I managed to find shoes in my closet before getting this shoe rack (I say as if didn't literally just set this up three weeks ago, but oh well.) I kept my shoes neatly lined up at the bottom of my closet, but time and time again, would find myself going on a treasure hunt to find a pair I was looking for, because they somehow got buried underneath a sea of other random belongings I would throw into my closet for easy storage. This looks really neat after you set it up and place shoes on it, and I highly recommend it. I will say, this is much easier to set up if two people can do it together, but, it's not impossible to set up alone. It may take a bit more time, but it can be done with a bit of patience!" —Sam Wieder

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.87.

    14. A fluorescent Apple TV remote cover that'll make it easy to find your clicker. Whether it's slipped your couch or buried itself between your cushions, this silicone brightly-coloured case will make it a cinch to spot.

    Amazon / Via

    "I love my Apple TV, but the remote is so small that I would lose it constantly — plus, because of its symmetrical design, I'd often mix up which end was the handle and which end I was supposed to click. Now that I have this bright green cover, I haven't lost the remote even once. And because of its shape, I automatically know which part of it to hold! This cover also helps protect my remote from any scratches or dings from dropping it on the floor. It's a pretty simple product, but it's helped my TV-watching habits immensely." —Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.99+ (for 4th-Gen Apple TV only, available in 11 colours).

    15. A set of space-saving vacuum bags that will help keep your closet clutter-free. Now you can finally get rid of that floordrobe that's been taking up 90% of your bedroom and store it under your bed instead.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I chose the large size (as opposed to the biggest size, called 'jumbo') because it seemed easier to move and store — jumbo is probably perfect for bedding, duvets, etc! And just one large bag was plenty to store nine or ten *very* large winter sweaters — all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I didn't feel like breaking out the vacuum, so I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap — easy peasy!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get a set of six large bags on Amazon Canada for $36.99+. Available in four sizes and in variety packs.

    16. A bottle of ColorWow's Dream Coat spray that'll make your 'do sleek, shiny, and flyaway free. Salon-level blowout, here you come.

    BuzzFeed / Alexandra Napoli

    "After showering, I let my hair dry a bit so it's not soaking wet, but more damp. Then before blow drying, I use the spray generously all over my head (especially underneath near the back of my neck and on my ends). Ever since I started using it, I can see a visible difference in the final outcome. My hair is super sleek and holds its shape for way longer. I experience less annoying flyaways and my wispy hairs (you know what I'm talking about) stay totally flat. As a tip – you have to activate the spray with heat. If you just spray it on your hair and then let it air dry, you probably won't see big results. Some people make this mistake and then think the spray isn't working for them. But that's not the case! Also, I don't find that the spray makes my hair feel greasy. My hair feels very soft and looks super velvety. Now, I actually look forward to doing my hair because I know the results will be worth it." —Alexandra Napoli

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39.98.

    17. A set of stainless steel measuring spoons that stick together with the help of powerful magnets. Because they're attached to each other, they take up less drawer space, which is great if you're not working with a ton of kitchen space.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I hate measuring spoons that come on a keyring, because if you dirty one, you need to wash the whole lot. Not with these! You simply detach whichever tools you need and leave the rest sparkling clean. They're also dishwasher safe, so you don't need to spend your precious time trying to scrub off flour or honey." —Alice Prendergast

    Get a set of four (¼ teaspoon, ½ teaspoon, 1 teaspoon, and 1 tablespoon) on Amazon Canada for $18.49. There's a cup version available, too, if you want to complete your baking set.

    18. A pair of eco-friendly bamboo shoe deodorizers that'll keep your sneakers from stinking up your entire home. They're packed with activated charcoal that prevents the buildup of harmful mould, mildew, bacteria, and fungi, so your feet will be healthier and happier, too.

    Yi Yang / Via BuzzFeed

    "I tried them first on my favourite black boots that I wear daily. They had started to smell a little musty, and the odour was beginning to transfer onto my socks. Overnight, the smell had completely disappeared, leaving only a leather scent behind. To say I was shook is an understatement. The product description says the bags are reusable for up to two years; you simply air them out in the sun to rejuvenate 'em once in a while. I’ve been using the same pair now for six months, and they’re still highly effective." —Yi Yang (read her whole review here).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.95. Also available in a pack of four.

    19. A tube of Cosrx gel cleanser that'll leave your face feeling squeaky clean without stripping it of its natural oils. It smells a little medicinal, but it works actual wonders for your pores.

    Alice Prendergast / Via, Sarah Han / Via

    "Even though it's a gel, it does foam up! Which I love! I like to rub it in my hands before applying it on my face. It's super light and easier to work in and go to town with a lil' massage than, say, a creamy cleanser. I tend to get some breakouts when I travel, and I really think the Betaine Salicylate and Tea Tree Leaf Oil has helped kept my pores clear and prevented breakouts from popping up." —Sarah Han

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99.

    20. A set of braided lightning chargers of various lengths, including one that's a whopping ten feet long. Now you won't have to get out of bed to charge your devices and can scroll to your heart's content while your battery refills.

    Imaan Sheikh / Via BuzzFeed

    "These have honestly changed my life. I was just looking for a couple of regular iPhone cables to keep in my bag and use at the office/home, but then I came across this multipack on Amazon. It comes with two three-foot cables and three cables longer than the regular length. My favourite thing IN THE WORLD is the ten-foot cable. The freedom is ridiculous. I can be at the other edge of my bed and charge my phone! Also, other-third party cables I've tried have charged my phone very slowly, but this one charges perfectly. And the cables withstood my teething kittens (who have destroyed five MacBook chargers, countless iPhone cables, and two pairs of earphones). This is a very high quality product for the price and I just KNOW anyone would love it. It's been my best Amazon purchase in months." —Imaan Sheikh

    Get a five-pack of cables from Amazon Canada for $16.99. Available in three colours.

    21. A hand-operated label maker that you can use to mark your territory (buzz off, roommates) and keep your entire pantry organized. It also comes in super handy for labelling meal-prepped lunches, if you're into that.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "It prints out aesthetically pleasing little labels that you can use on storage boxes, meal prep containers, and everything in between. Unlike most electronic printers, this handheld device punches the letters into the stickers, which (in my humblest of opinions) is a lot prettier than an Arial font on a plain white background." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $20.99. Also available in green.

    22. A bottle of soothing T/Gel shampoo that'll help control itching and dandruff. It can be used daily and will leave your hair looking healthy and shiny after every wash.

    A person holding a bottle of T/Gel shampoo
    Imaan Sheikh/BuzzFeed

    "I have hereditary alopecia and any irritants on my scalp can make things flare up, making my hair loss worse. A few months ago, I contracted dermatitis on my face and it spread to my scalp. My face healed in days, but the flakiness on my scalp wouldn't go away, causing me to lose clumps of hair ALL day, everywhere. I tried SLS-free shampoos, shampooing less, shampooing more, conditioning carefully, and even using steroid-based topical ointments, and nothing really worked. But then I started using T/Gel shampoo every week and a half (it's very high-strength). It showed substantial effects on my hair after the first few uses! The itchiness disappeared and eventually my hair stopped falling as badly as before. Plus, new teeny-tiny hair is growing on the bald patches! It'll be a long road, but I'll continue to use T/Gel shampoo." —Imaan Sheikh

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.79.

    23. An Instant Pot air fryer that'll give you all the joys of fried food, without all the oil and splattering. It'll also save you from hitting up a drive thru every time you're craving crispy nuggs or fries.

    Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

    "I didn't realize just how much I would adore an air fryer until I bought one. I thought it would be one of those appliances I'd use from time to time, but turns out I use it almost every day. It turns even the most basic foods like chicken thighs and green beans into crispy, crunchy, golden-brown deliciousness." —Hannah Loewentheil (read her full review here)

    Get a six-quart version from Amazon Canada for $146.38+. Available in three sizes and five styles.

    24. An electric fabric shaver that'll remove the pilled-up lint that's accumulated on your carpet, furniture, and sheets. You can also use it on clothes, which is obviously a major win.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I got this because my favourite sweaters were starting to look kind of grungy. I tried using lint rollers, but they weren't picking up enough of the pills on my knits, and it was so time consuming. This electric shaver got rid of ALL the annoying pills and my sweaters look good as new. It's super gentle on clothes and it took way less time to get rid of the pills. I'll definitely be using this going forward." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.98.

    25. A High Performance planner that'll keep track of your appointments and to-do lists, and help you monitor how you're feeling, what your goals are, how productive you are, and tons of other valuable metrics.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "Every page offers a comprehensive breakdown of the day (divided into half-hour sections), space to write your goals, end of day reflections, and notes. It also has weekly calendars and pages where you can grade your progress from week to week and month to month. Since starting to use it, I know when everything is happening, when things are due, and am actually a lot more punctual. I also can see trends in my mindset and know what I need to work on (be that mental health, productivity, work, relationships with friends and family, etc.)." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $20.39.

    26. A pair of Sam Edelman strap sandals that are comfortable enough to wear for hours on end, and won't leave your feet blistered and aching. They have block heels that won't dig into grass, making them perfect for park picnics and outdoor weddings.

    Amazon / Via

    "I have a pair of these block heels and they are my absolute favourites! I wore them for hours on my feet at my bridal shower and my best friend's shower when I was a bridesmaid. If any of you have been in either of those roles, you know there is no such thing as sitting during either event. These shoes saved me!" —Heather Braga

    Get them on Amazon Canada starting at $82.51. Available in nine colours and sizes 5-11.

    27. A portable Bluetooth speaker that has killer sound quality and is totally waterproof. Because it doesn't get messed up if it takes a dip, it's the perfect companion for camping trips and outdoor adventures.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "This speaker is surprisingly loud for its size and comes on pretty much every trip I take. It's had drinks spilled on it and been bashed around on beer pong tables and has virtually no damage to it. If you're looking for a durable speaker with top-notch sound quality, it's definitely worth considering." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $119.99. Available in eleven colours

    28. A pack of revolutionary acne patches that'll magically make your zits disappear overnight. They're barely-visible and will also help stop you from picking at your active pimples.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / Via BuzzFeed

    "When ~something inevitably happens~ to throw my skin out of whack — like stepping foot onto a dry-ass airplane or being super stressed out — I keep a stash of Cosrx pimple patches handy. They actually absorb gunk from your pimple — it's gross, but so helpful! And you're INCAPABLE of picking at your skin when these are on! True little miracles, these are." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get three packs of 24 patches on Amazon Canada for $13.50.

    29. A set of double-glide shower hooks that'll hang your shower curtain and liner on different prongs, making them easy to remove or switch out. They also glide easily along your shower rod, making your curtain easier to open and close.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    "These hooks have been a total dream for when I groggily throw open my shower curtain every morning. First off, they’re super smooth at gliding. Shower hooks that drag can get out of my no-contacts-wearing face. There’s a little noise when they slide across my metal shower rod, but I’m pretty sure that’s just how it is with all shower hooks. Since moving more than a month ago, I’ve swapped out my shower curtain for a creepily glam one (I switched out *after* I took the pics above) that meshes better with my bathroom tile colourway. The swap couldn’t have been easier thanks to the double hooks. My shower liner stayed put during the process. For something under $10 that’ll change your life every damn day, these hooks are legit" —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get a set of 12 on Amazon Canada for $9.75+. Available in three colours.

    30. A plush Chuckit! ball that's soft, yet durable, and is great for indoor games of fetch. It's also bigger than your average tennis ball, so it won't go MIA under your furniture.

    Sarah Aspler/BuzzFeed

    "I was talking with someone at the dog park about it and she kept raving about the ChuckIt! indoor ball so I decided to try it out. It’s perfect! We can play fetch inside without worrying about knocking over everything on the coffee table. It’s super light, colourful, and honestly has lasted way longer than I expected it to. But the best part? This ball is BIG, and unlike her other tennis balls, it can’t roll under furniture. If you’re a dog owner, you know how annoying it is to keep having to get on all fours and find their ball after it disappears under the bed or TV stand. It quickly became my dog's favourite ball, and now she carries it around everywhere." —Sarah Aspler

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.98. Also available in a pack of two.

    31. A tube of bestselling collagen treatment that'll repair your poor over-styled locks. Great if you've been going crazy with heat tools or coloured your hair a few too many times.

    Bek O' Connell / Via BuzzFeed

    "This repairing hair treatment works just like a hair mask. You wash your hair, and then apply the treatment to your hair and let sit for 5–15 minutes. It's in a little squeeze bottle, which is a huge plus because I hate having to scoop product out of a jar while I'm in the shower. The scent is nice without being overwhelming. After rinsing this out, I can feel a noticeable difference right away. My hair, once unruly and dry, now feels like silk. I can't stop touching it; it feels like I stole someone else's hair. My fuzzy puff of hair has relaxed into loose waves and each strand just feels considerably healthier. I can't believe the results after just two uses. I'm ready to start a very active Elizavecca fan club if anyone else is looking to join." —Bek O' Connell

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.50.

    32. This soothing moisture gel that's packed with aloe, making it great for sunburns. It'll also help combat the irritation and redness that comes with any bad breakout.

    A person holding a tub of aloe gel.
    Elizabeth Lilly / Via BuzzFeed

    "I'm normally vigilant about reapplying sunscreen; I even went a whole week in Hawaii without a sunburn! But last week I was really excited to be on my dad's boat and forgot to apply sunscreen on my legs before we zipped around a lake for two hours. Now I have a physical reminder of my forgetfulness and stupidity. Basically, I am in agony and doing everything a dermatologist says to do when you're sunburned, but I'd be in MUCH MORE AGONY if it weren't for this Nature Republic aloe vera gel. When I arrived back at my apartment I grabbed the tub out of my fridge and starting applying in 30-minute intervals for some AHHHH relief. The difference is astounding. I could never apply drugstore aloe this often. And I'm never wasting my money on that stuff again." —Elizabeth Lilly (read her full review here)

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.85.

    33. A rose gold phone stand that'll keep your group chat in full view without even having to pick up your device. It's also great for FaceTime calls, Skype meetings, and watching Queer Eye while you attempt to get some work done on your big screen.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / Via BuzzFeed

    "It has a sleek but pretty, not-too-pink champagne-y rose gold body, an adjustable stand (so you can position it to your height perfectly), and a hole in the back you can snake a cord through for easy charging. The ledge is wide enough to fit a fairly substantial case without worry, and it's a game-changer that I can just look at the screen to unlock my phone. Magic! Now I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.94. Also available in black.

    34. And finally, this budget-friendly nail cream that'll make your talons longer and stronger than ever before. It can also be used to moisturize your hands and dry, calloused feet, if that's something you struggle with.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I bought this because the winter got the best of my nails, leaving me with hangnails galore. I actually saw results after one use, and now my nails are tough enough to not break every time I crack open my laptop and start typing (an actual problem I was having)." —Alice Prendergast
