    1. These hydrating eye masks that'll pump some life back into your under-eye area. Reviewers recommend tossing them in the fridge prior to use, because it can help de-puff (especially when you're hungover).

    2. A pair of silk hair scrunchies that'll help keep your precious locks from snagging or breaking. Reviewers say the elastics in the scrunchies are thick and strong, so despite their slippery-smooth texture, they'll actually hold your hair up.

    Get the set of two on Amazon Canada for $24.99. Available in 11 colours, multi-packs, and minis.

    3. A tub of Sol de Janeiro's Bum Bum Cream that'll rock your senses to heaven and back. If the deliciously-buttery scent isn't enough, it'll also leave behind a subtle shimmer once it's rubbed in.

    I cannot get enough of this stuff. It's so thick and luxurious, I feel like a literal queen every time I slather it on. And the SMELL. It's sweet and spicy, and has become my (and my bf's) favourite scent, ever. I love the subtle glow it leaves behind, too. Nothing too extravagant, but a soft shimmery trail that reminds me of lounging on a tropical beach.

    Get it on Sephora Canada for $59. Also available in a mini size.

    4. A lavender-infused eye cushion that can ease a screen-induced headache and help you fall asleep. It comes with a removable cover, so you can wash it without soaking the whole thing.

    Get it from Simons for $22. Available in five colours.

    5. A deep-conditioning hair mask that'll nourish your mane, without weighing it down. Reviewers say this stuff melts into their hair like butter and that it leaves their locks noticeably softer.

    You can also use it in the shower as a super-luxe conditioner.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $37. Also available in a mini size.

    6. An elegant teak bowl candle that'll inspire serenity while you ignore your notifications.

    The soy candle has three wicks that'll burn for up to 20 hours (and reviewers say it smells amazing).

    Get it from Simons for $40.

    7. A silk pillowcase that'll help keep your hair from breaking while you rest your sweet lil' head at night. It'll also help to keep your face hydrated while you sleep, unlike cotton pillowcases that tend to absorb moisture (along with your expensive night cream).

    K. I finally bought a silk pillowcase, and let me tell you: I wish I had done it sooner! 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. It also feels cooling on my face all night long, which, as someone who is a hot sleeper, is a mighty bonus. And yes, this baby is 100% silk.

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

    8. A heated deep tissue massager that'll knead your neck and shoulders in between RMT appointments. Reviewers rave about how it helps relieve migraines and say it soothes their ultra-tense traps like nothing else.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $84.99.

    9. A bottle of Olaplex Bonding Oil that'll revitalize your damaged locks and tame your frizz. It's super lightweight, so it won't weigh down your hair or make your tresses feel greasy at all.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    I am super happy with this little bottle of magic. It actually feels like it's penetrating through my hair cuticle to repair my hair, instead of just sitting on top of it. It's lightweight, so it doesn't make my hair heavy or greasy whatsoever, yet it still tames my wavy hair's excessive frizz. It's a thinner consistency, but packs a punch in every drop. You only need to rub a few drops between your palms every time you use it, so it'll last you a while.

    (When I do a straighter hairstyle, I'll use a squirt of my Verb Ghost Oil on wet hair right after I get out of the shower. I'll blowdry with my Revlon One-Step Brush, and then finish it off with the Olaplex No. 7 Oil. The combination is perfection.)

    Get it from Sephora for $38.

    10. An orthopedic pillow that'll help you on your journey toward a more productive sleeping position. Reviewers say that after just a few nights of using it, they noticed a significant decline in neck tension and back pain.

    22. An Ilia mascara that'll lengthen your lashes, without drying them out. It uses shea butter and beeswax that'll keep them feeling healthy, and stays on surprisingly well for how easy it is to take off at the end of the day.

    This mascara feels like it actually conditions my lashes when I have it on, and never feels crispy or clunky (like some do). Like, have you ever put on mascara and thought, frig, this is why my eyelashes are stunted? Yeah, that does NOT happen with this one, whatsoever. The fact that it's made with beeswax and shea butter makes me feel like I'm giving my lashes a little TLC, even though I'm wearing makeup. It also comes off super easily at night, which is great when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to deal with a full-on scrub down. And the results? The length it gives is no joke! I'm obsessed.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $18+. Available in two sizes.

    23. A bottle of The Ordinary's hyaluronic acid, that'll make you wonder how you ever lived without it. Just pat a few drops onto your face right before you moisturize and watch your skin gobble up that hydration!

    I started using this when I came back to Canada after spending a year in a tropical climate. My face when it felt winter again was, like, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME. Every time I put moisturizer on it just sat on top of my wildly dry skin, no matter what I tried. And my nose? Flake city. Not cute. After hearing rave reviews about The Ordinary, I went into Deciem and spoke to one of their beauty specialists, who basically threw this bottle at me. They put a drop of hyaluronic acid on my left hand and added moisturizer, then added only moisturizer to my right hand for comparison. One minute later, my left hand had absorbed all of the moisture, and my right had a white cast of cream left on it. I was sold, and now I can't live without it.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $6.80. It's also available in a value size, which is GREAT if you plan to use it all over your bod.

    24. A hot water bottle that'll help ease your aches and pains, and keep you nice 'n' toasty. It comes with a cozy cover that'll prevent you from scorching yourself, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.69. Available in five colours.

    25. A Laneige sleeping lip mask that'll plump and hydrate your lips overnight. Packed with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, you'll probably end up using it as an extra-strength lip balm during the day, too, because it's just so ~luxe~.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $26. Available in eight flavours.

    26. And finally, a home theatre projector that'll turn your living room into a literal cinema. Now you can throw on your favourite film, make some popcorn, and snuggle up in front of the 100-inch (!!!) screen that it comes with.
