    It comes with a lotion bar, two soaps, and two lip balms.

    Get it from BotanyBarnCanada on Etsy for $45.

    2. A heated deep tissue massager that'll knead their neck and shoulders in between RMT appointments. Reviewers say it can help to relieve migraines and that it soothes their ultra-tense traps like nothing else.

    May Ning / Via BuzzFeed

    "There are eight little nodes (four big and four small) that roll around and knead out all my knots and tense muscles. You can switch back and forth between rolling inwards or outwards. It also has three speed settings, and a button that turns on the heat. Don’t worry, it’s not HOT hot — it’ll add just a touch of warmth to your massage, which makes it that much more relaxing and soothing." —May Ning

    Check out May's full review of this heavenly massager here.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $58.99 (originally $78.99).

    3. A deck of yoga exercise cards that'll give them a range of poses to practice and learn. Each card has an illustration, description, and a code they can scan to access an online video tutorial of each posture (designed by a certified yoga instructor).

    The cards are colour coded to represent different types of poses (hip openers are orange, backbends are purple, twists are pink, etc.), so they can easily cater their practice around specific movements.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.97. Also available in a larger deck.

    4. A memory foam knee pillow that'll save them from waking up every morning feeling stiff and achy. It comes with a removable strap, so they won't lose their comfortable position in the middle of the night (even if they tend to toss and turn).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28 (originally $35.25).

    5. This 500-piece puzzle that'll give them a calming activity to do. It'll entertain and work their brain at the same time, and give them a break from their screens, too.

    The illustration was drawn by hand in Montreal, and made with 100% recycled cardboard.

    Get it from Simons for $45. Available in two colourful illustrations.

    6. A tube of Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen that'll keep the sun from damaging the skin on their sweet face. It's completely transparent, so it won't leave a weird white cast (like a lot of other SPFs tend to do).

    It's a lightweight gel consistency that is oil free, scentless, waterproof, and won't mess up their makeup if they use it as a primer, either.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $45.

    7. An inflatable stability ball they can use as a prop for their online pilates class, or even as an alternative to their stiff office chair. It comes with a soft cover that'll help the ball blend into their home's aesthetic, too.

    Get the 24-inch ball on Amazon Canada for $89.96. Available in four colours.

    8. A facial cleansing brush that will literally vibrate the dirt off of their face. It has a heated massage option (!!!) that can help to promote circulation and blood flow, too.

    It comes with a detachable silicone brush head with soft bristles for a gentle (but effective!) scrub.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $32.99.

    9. A foldable foot basin that'll let them soak those barkin' dogs until their dead skin is soft enough to scrub off. It has built-in massage rollers that'll knead their achy arches, too.

    Amazon / Via

    Pair it with an Epsom salt soak and let the home-spa vibes unfurl.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $45. Available in three colours.

    10. An anti-slip exercise mat that'll remind them to take a moment to stretch out. It's on the thicker side for comfort, so it'll give their joints the padding they need. It also has markers on it that'll help them focus on their alignment.

    Reviewers say it holds up well to the test of time, and that it doesn't have an odour like many new mats initially do.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $34.99+. Available in eight colours.

    11. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker that'll suction onto the wall in their shower. Now they can keep their pricey (and not-so-water-resistant speakers) the heck away from their steamy bathroom.

    Get it from Indigo for $199. Available in three sizes.

    13. A tin of Province Apothecary Rescue Balm that'll quench their dryest patches with hemp seed oil, beeswax, and omegas. They'll want to rub a little in the palm of their hand to warm it up, so it can melt right in when they apply it.

    14. An air purifier that'll obliterate the dust and pet dander that loves to float through their house. It'll be especially handy if they have allergies — reviewers say they'll notice clearer sinuses and better breathing right away.

    15. A silk pillowcase that won't soak up their expensive night cream (like cotton pillowcases tend to do). It'll keep their hair from breaking while they rest their sweet lil' head at night, too.

    Simons / Via, Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    K. I finally bought a silk pillowcase, and let me tell you: I wish I had done it sooner! I love how soft and cool it feels on my face, and the fact that it has literally transformed my day two curls. After sleeping on a regular cotton pillowcase, my curls would be a frizzy mess and I'd have to style 'em again (or just take a shower). Now? They're just as nice as they were before I hit the hay. And yes, this baby is 100% silk.

    Get it from Simons for $60. Also available in white.

    16. A shower filter, because your mom hates how hard the water in her shower is. Reviewers say installing this baby has helped them deal with eczema and dry scalp issues and love that it can help to reduce chlorine, metals, and odours.

    It comes with an extra filter cartridge, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.99 (originally $31.99).

    17. A Bluetooth headband that'll work just like a set of headphones, except they'll be able to rest their head on their pillow comfortably while they use it. Reviewers say the sound doesn't leak, so the person next to them (like their snoozing spouse) won't be able to hear their tunes.

    They can use it as a comfortable alternative to earbuds while they exercise, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.99.

    18. A tube of Fresh Soy Face Cleanser that'll also remove their makeup (yes, even their mascara). It has a gel-like consistency that'll leave their face feeling ultra soft, refreshed, and not stripped of its moisture.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    K, I know this cleanser is on the more expensive side of the spectrum, but I literally can't use any other face wash. It NEVER breaks me out, irritates my skin, or feels drying. I love that this stuff removes the added step of using a makeup remover (and that it also saves me from buying yet another face product). It glides on smoothly and is super gentle on my skin. I use it day and night, every single day.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $49.

    19. An electric fabric shaver that'll remove rogue threads and lint from their pilling sweaters. They can use it on their furniture, too, to give their couch or rugs an instant refresh.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    It comes with a power cord, storage bag, cleaning brush, and an extra blade.

    "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." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.43 (originally $20.99).

    20. A sunrise alarm clock that'll gently wake them up by tricking their senses into thinking it’s light out, even if it isn’t. The crescendo of nature sounds and gradual brightening will replace the jarring ringtone they're probably using now.

    It also comes with a sunset simulation to help them get to bed, as well as seven light colours to choose from.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $46.99.

    21. A sleek Oura ring that'll track their personal health insights while they wear it. It's paired with a free mobile app that'll allow them check in on their sleep, activity, and recovery progress.

    Get it from Indigo for $399.99. Available in sizes 6—13.

    22. A cervical traction device that can help restore the natural curvature of their neck. Reviewers say it helps to relieve the stress they hoard in their shoulders and recommend using it for half an hour before hittin' the hay.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $53.06 (originally $67.40).

    23. An essential oil diffuser that'll help them find their inner zen. It'll revitalize the air around them for up to seven hours and let them explore the benefits of aromatherapy with scented oils.

    They'll also have the option to use it as ambient, multi-coloured lighting.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39.99.

    24. A spinning makeup brush cleaner that'll clean and dry their dirty makeup brushes in under a minute. Their powder brushes (and their skin) will thank you.

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    "I'm know I'm not alone in not washing my makeup brushes as often as I should. It takes forever, and even once I'm done cleaning them, I still have to let them dry overnight. But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. It uses a battery-operated spinner to swish the dirty brush in soapy water (I just used liquid soap, but you can also use special makeup brush shampoo), and then you just lift the brush out of the water and keep it spining for a few seconds — voilà! Within 30 seconds, the brush is totally clean and — more importantly — totally dry." —Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $24.98 (originally $32.98). They'll also need some AAA batteries — get a 12-pack from Amazon Canada for $16.64.

    25. An elegant teak bowl candle that'll inspire serenity while they bask in the tub or lounge on the couch. Reviewers say it looks beautiful and smells amazing, too.

    It has three wicks that'll burn for up to 20 hours.

    Get it from Simons for $40.

    26. A facial steamer that'll open up those clogged pores for a deep cleanse. Reviewers are obsessed with it, and say it's the perfect thing to use before doing a mask treatment.

    It even comes with four facial tools that'll help them tackle pesky pimples.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $41.99.

    27. A bath tray that'll keep their phone and wine within arm's reach. It has grooves and slots to help keep their things from knocking over, and extendable arms that'll fit on most bathtubs.

    29. And finally, a facial massage set, so they can give themselves an at-home spa experience every night. It comes with a double-sided roller and a gua sha scraper that'll help soothe tension, decrease puffiness, and promote circulation.
