    5. This derma roller from Micro Glow, that's perfect for anyone who can't stop talking about their skincare routine.

    Micro Glow

    When they're used correctly, these teeny-tiny sterile needles puncture the surface of your skin, which triggers substances that stimulate cell growth, the formation of new blood vessels in the skin, as well as the production of collagen. They're used to minimise fine lines, reduce hyperpigmentation, increase skin elasticity and in some cases, they can even help with loose skin on your body. They even help your serums and potions absorb into your skin better.

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."

    29. This hot air brush that makes it easy for them to give themselves volume and dry their hair without it getting poofy as heck.

    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.

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

This limited edition hand cream set features three products with different scents. The packaging has been designed by LA-based designer and artist Steven Harrington, and it's so darn pretty that you won't even need to wrap it.

    Buy it from Innisfree for $20.
