    Get it from Indigo for $30.

    4. A scratch-off movie bucket list that'll give you a whole new list of movies to watch on your date nights. You've probably already seen a handful, so they can start scratching off titles as soon as they open it.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $26.55. Available in three styles.

    5. A Nintendo Switch that's small enough to pop in their bag, but can also be connected to their TV if they want to play it on the big screen. It has two removable controllers (the Joy-Cons on either side of the screen), so you can play with them, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $399.99. Available in three colours.

    6. A bottle of Canadian-made Heartbeat hot sauce that'll help ~spice up their life~. They pack a punch in the flavour department, but won't put their taste buds out of commission for a week. Will you try and steal this for your own fridge? Definitely.

    I'm a big hot sauce fanatic — like, I could drink it straight out of the bottle and be happy about it. I have a few options in my fridge that are so dang spicy, I'm pretty confident they were forged depths of hell, but, hey, that's my jam. These ones by Heartbeat are a nice option for when I still want to feel my tastebuds after a meal. The red habanero is my go-to for tacos and breakfast scrambies, and I love the pineapple-infused one for burgers. They're also made in Canada, which is pretty neat.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.99. Available in four flavours and in three- or six-packs.

    7. A pair of shearling slippers that will keep them from shoving their ice-cold toes under your butt to keep them warm. These ones have a harder sole with a tread that'll save them from taking a dive on their hardwood.

    Get them from Simons for $110. Available in womens size 6—10.

    8. A gooseneck kettle that will inspire them to make you coffee every morning (and look great in your kitchen, too). Reviewers love that you can set the temperature to your liking, whether that's scalding hot or actually drinkable.

    Don't forget to grab them a bag of coffee, too.

    Get it from Indigo for $210.

    9. A bottle of luxury beard oil to add shape and shine to their beard, and get rid of any annoying itchiness. Plus, they smell great, which obviously benefits you, too!

    10. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro, so that they stop stealing yours when they go for a run. They last for nearly five hours on a single charge, so they won't have to stress about them dying in the middle of a workout.

    Amazon / Via

    It includes 50 chicken-based recipes.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.49. Also available for Kindle.

    14. A fancy MVMT watch, so they'll never be late for anything again. The strap is interchangeable, so they can switch up the band when they want a new look.

    16. A pair of hot sauce keychains, so you'll always have sauce, whether you're on a road trip or grabbing impromptu takeout on date night. They come empty, so don't forget to grab them an XL bottle of hot sauce, so they can fill them as soon as they open their gift.

    Amazon / Via

    18. A robotic vacuum that'll handle your most annoying house chores for you, so you won't have to argue about who's going to do the sweeping. It's as quiet as a microwave, so it won't bug you while it does its job.

    I own this and I love it. Thanks to an uncovered skylight, my room gets very bright before I'm ready to wake up. This thing blocks out every little bit of light, so I don't have to wake up with the sun. It's also really comfortable to sleep in (and I am very particular about my sleep gear).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    21. An electric wine bottle opener that'll help them swiftly open any bottle of shiraz or chardonnay, so you won't have to wait to get your wine. It'll also save them from fumbling around with a corkscrew when you're trying to have a romantic moment.

    It'll automatically shut off after ten hours.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $109.37+. Available in sizes twin—king.

    26. A portable 2-in-1 dry iron and steamer, because their clothes live in a wrinkly pile on the floor (and so do yours). It takes under a minute to preheat, so they can get down to business right away.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    27. A Click and Grow garden that'll make them feel like a seasoned botanist and give you free access to the freshest (and cheapest) herbs. I have one of these and my boyfriend keeps talking about stealing my basil. Will he succeed? Only time will tell.

    It's super simple to use: just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It comes with three basil plant pods, but you can purchase different varieties, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $129.99. Available in three colours

    28. This bestselling massage gun that'll help them blast away their aches knead out their knots (if you're lucky, they'll use it on you, too). Reviewers say that it eases post-workout pains like nobody's business and love that they can maneuver it with one hand.

    It traps unpleasant bathroom odours and is more effective than using an entire bottle of air freshener.
