    10. These lip crayons by Innisfree that'll provide them with just the right amount of colour for those sunny, summer days.

    Promising Review: "Since summer is coming up in Australia, I’ve been meaning to expand my lipstick collection — which currently consists of a lot of browns and dark, vampy colours — to products that would be super easy to apply and retouch on the go. Enter these Innisfree Jelly Balm Crayons! They come in three different colours (Chee-ry Up, Chili Bling and Berry Heart) and add a beautiful pop of colour to the lips. Plus, they’re infused with shea butter and olive oil, which means they effortlessly glide on and are super comfortable to wear.

    I will say that although they’re advertised as a 'sheer tint', each crayon contains A LOT of pigment. That’s definitely not a bad thing though, as it means you can either keep things subtle or go for a bold look. At the moment, my go-to is lightly swiping across the lips and patting it out with my finger to create a muted tint of colour that’s just so cute and adorable."

    11. This cold brew maker that they can keep in the fridge, so that they can enjoy a cold cup of zoom zoom bean juice whenever they want.


    To make the coffee, all they need to do is load coarse grounds into the stainless steel basket, pour filtered water over and let it sit overnight. Then serve the delicious drink come morning. *Italian chef kiss.*

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $24.79.

    12. This scalp massager, which will not only reduce stress, but increase blood circulation and stimulate hair growth.


    This ergonomically-designed scalp massager will make easy work of shampooing their hair. Made of environmentally-friendly silicone (flexible!), the use of this brush will relieve tension and improve hair health.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $8.99.

    13. This handheld milk frother, so they can have cafe-style foam without having to leave their house.


    To use this frother, they literally just have to hold it in their milk for a minute and ta-da! They'll have creamy, delicious froth. It's also perfect for making matcha green tea lattes.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $18.95.

    14. This veggie cutter bowl, because you know the hassle of finely dicing produce is keeping them from adding it to their dishes.


    Promising review: "I do a lot of cooking, not only because I love to eat, but also because it's turned into my love language as a result of my heritage. One thing I've absolutely hated since day one is cutting up onions (there's a LOT of onions involved in Afghan cooking) and this baby has eliminated all of those quarrels. I can now make my dad's insanely delicious meatball curry without my hands stinking of onion juice for days afterwards. I also recommend it if you love to cook, but haven't been able to perfect your knife skills yet — it's basically a small, manual food processor."

    15. This makeup bag that's perfect for those (ahem — me) who have a hard time packing their makeup away after using it.


    This makeup bag uses a drawstring mechanism to open up and become a makeup mat, then closes to turn back into a makeup bag.

    Buy a two pack from Amazon Australia for $12.76.

    16. This flip n' slice loaf pan, which is perfect for any friend with a banana bread obsession.


    When they bake anything into this non-stick pan, it'll come out with even ridges, so they can use them as a guideline for cutting. The pan creates a great pattern for decorating, if they're making something more intricate. It's made from carbon steel to allow their food to bake and brown with ease.

    Buy it from Big W for $14.

    17. This perfumed hand cream set by Innisfree, that smells divine and will have their hands feeling soft and looking healthy.

    BuzzFeed / Hameda Nafiz

    We all know how important it is to wash our hands — especially as of late, but unfortunately this can usually lead to dry skin, so it's important to moisturise. This limited edition hand cream set features three products with different scents. The packaging is designed by LA-based designer and artist Steven Harrington — it's so darn pretty that you won't even need to wrap it.

    Buy it from Innisfree for $20.

    18. And finally, this little snow fairy set by LUSH that'll show them just how sweet you think they are.


    The candy-like scent of this shower gel and bath bomb are the perfect thing for anyone with a massive sweet tooth.

Meanwhile, the shower gel will get them nice and clean, while leaving a lingering, delicious scent that will stay with them as they get on with their day.
