We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

1. A portable charger that can fit in your wallet.

"It arrived well packaged and I was a little taken aback with how light it is, hardly weighs anything at all. Plugged it in but didn't have a chance to do a full charge so it only had about 15 mins' charge. My partner's phone ran down so we used the charger and we managed to get the phone back up to over 70% using that initial charge. The price is also very good." – Toppers

Average rating: 4.6/5

Price: £9.89

3. A mermaid cushion cover that you can change every day.

"Really happy with colour and quality. Niece will love it. Don't forget to buy your inserts separately, folks. This is just the case. Still, good value and would happily recommend." – Tors

Average rating: 4.7/5

Price: £5.09


4. A cloth that will remove all your makeup with just water.

"This little cloth has changed my makeup routine. Gone are the days of using wipes that make my sensitive skin flare up and sting. This is kind and gentle and great for the environment and wallet too as it saves a ton of money not buying makeup wipes. Throw this in the washing machine and it comes out good as new!" – Bishouju

Average rating: 4.8/5

Price: £4.15

5. A digital kitchen scale for super-accurate cooking and baking.

"Exactly what I was looking for. Simple to use (also being able to zero various containers to enable small measures). Recommended to anyone looking for a small-scale weigher." – wlndsorboy

"This works quite well and is quick to heat. A good long cable for ease of use and good reach. The stand is very thin and not too stable but on the whole this is a good inexpensive tool for modest household use." – Furry Ferret

Average rating: 4.4/5

Price: £8.99


8. A Moleskine notebook for writing stuff out of your brain and on to paper.

"It's a Moleskine book – enough said. The person who received as a present uses it every day and loves the quality of the paper." – Jammin

Average rating: 4.6/5

Price: £7.60

9. A screen cleaner and microfibre cloth that will leave your phone feeling like new.

"I tried this eco screen cleaner on a few different devices and it seems to work perfectly with no leftover residue. I used it on my LG monitor/Dell laptop and I'm very happy with the results. I also used it on a Samsung 50" TV screen and a glossy Dell monitor, and again I was happy with the results, a clean finish. The microfibre cloth is a welcome addition too. I will purchase again." – House of Charles

Price: £6.98

10. A simple, lightweight rain jacket that you can keep in your bag in case of a surprise shower.

"This is a great cagoule, very handy to keep in my bag, folds up nice and small. I am a size 10 and bought size small which is perfect for me, large enough to fit over a fleece. I'm very pleased with it, excellent value, a very good purchase. Recommend." – Susan

Average rating: 4.1/5

Price: £1.99 – £8.99 depending on size and colour.

11. A set of colourful fineliners that can make every day just a bit brighter.

"These pens are brilliant for adult colouring. The end of the tip is reasonably fine so you can colour in small areas. I combine them with the Triplus Fineliners if I'm colouring intricate detail." – Aurora Sinclair
