    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    This phone holder comes with a magnetic disc that can be stuck to a phone or phone case, for instant 360° GPS viewing ability.

    Promising review: "I have been through so many phone cradles. Time after time, phones will just fall after driving over a speed bump and not provide the security they promise. This magnetic device is brilliant — I never have to worry about my phone falling and can view the screen in both landscape and portrait mode with a single rotation. The base of the holder extends and tilts in any direction, making it perfect to use in either the driver or passenger front seat."

    Promising Review: "I've been doing 10 minutes of bedtime yoga each night and not only have I become more flexible, I've found that my back and hips are less sore and I sleep much easier — which is amazing, considering my anxiety levels are currently through the roof. This one also has guiding lines, so you can make sure all your positions are perfect before hitting your first yoga class."

    18. This hot air brush that'll make it easier for them to dry their hair faster in the morning, saving time and energy.

    Clare Aston / BuzzFeed

    The brush uses hot air and ionic technology to get rid of frizz and leave their hair looking and feeling as smooth as silk.

    Promising review: "I’ve never been any good at styling my hair. It’s long, thick and stuck somewhere between a wave and a curl. The only time it looks good is when it’s an unintentional fluke and no one is around to see it. When I have an event where I want it to look great, I normally have to wash, blow dry, straighten and if I want some more volume, curl it again. As you can imagine, I don't that often — normally it's just a wash and air dry.

    I decided to give this product a go because it's a hair dryer and brush in one and I thought it could save my hair some heat damage and get those long, bouncy waves I've always dreamed of — without having to spend an hour and a half on it. Now, maybe I need more skill in the blow dry with brush departments (tips welcome), but I didn’t get the gentle waves I wanted. I will say this though, it did straighten my hair pretty well and it only took 15 minutes. So for ease of convenience and everyday wear (along with the cheap $$) I’m happy with how it turned out.

    20. This fitness tracker, that not only looks great, but will help them understand their body and its behaviours throughout the day.

    Amazon

    This handy little waterproof fitness tracker lasts for 15 days before they'll need to charge it again. It records heart rate, sleep quality and, of course, activity levels, so that they can make sure they're moving enough, even if they're still working from home.

    21. This six-minute diary, that will allow them to focus on mindfulness if they're feeling a little out of their head.

    Amazon

    This journal will encourage them to change their habits in order to achieve happiness, mindfulness and productive thinking.

    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $34.

    28. This tarot deck, which will provide them with a bit of enlightenment and contentment when they're feeling lost.

    Amazon

    Similar to the ouija board, tarot originated as a card game where people created their own fun narratives before it was used as a divination tool. But they soon realised that the tales the cards were telling were scarily related to their experiences. There's no time like the present for them to learn how to give themselves and others the gift of a little spiritual guidance. This deck even has gorgeous illustrations and a guidebook to help them out.

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "As a huge hot sauce fan and a lover of all things truffle (honestly, who isn't?), it's safe to say my interest was piqued when I heard about TRUFF. And let me tell you, this sauce did not disappoint. It is, hands down, the king of condiments. Within three days of opening the WHITE TRUFF, I'm down half a bottle. I have it on everything: Eggs, toasties, pasta, pizza, wraps, burgers and smashed avo. I could write an entire essay on why I think it's so incredible, but you really just need to grab a bottle for yourself, so you can understand."

    Julia Willing
