    7. This weighted cotton blanket to lessen your anxiety and get a good night’s rest — because you sure as hell don't need a cuddle buddy for that.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / Hameda Nafiz

    If you're the kind of person who tosses and turns a lot before going to bed, this weighted blanket will change your life. It feels like being tucked in or cuddling someone — except better, because you don't need to deal with another person.

    Weight is evenly distributed throughout the stitching of the blanket, making it feel as though you’re being hugged as you sleep. This blanket uses sand pellets for the weight distribution rather than fibre, so that you can use it all year round without feeling too hot.

    8. These Sound PEATS wireless earbuds, which are perfect if you're tired of constantly getting your wires tangled when you're attempting to workout in your tiny apartment.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    These earbuds run for four hours per charge and have smart touch technology, so you can control your tunes and answer calls without reaching for your phone.

    Promising review: "I've been dragging my heels to make the move to wireless earbuds — I thought for sure I'd lose one and that having to charge them would be a massive inconvenience. My husband bought these as a gift and now I love the convenience of not having to hold my phone when out and about, should I want to listen to my music. Their holder has magnetic properties, so when charging or just being stored, you don't have to worry about the earbuds falling out and getting lost."

    15. This LIFX Smart LED bulb, so you can set up customised bedtime mood lighting to get you ready for bed faster.

    @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com, Amazon, @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "LIFX lighting is the best purchase I've ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it's also really good for things such as sleep hygiene. At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it's time to wind down and it's much easier to fall asleep. It's perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There's a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you're playing! It's so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE."

    16. This time marked water bottle, because water breaks are just as important at home as they are in the office.

    Amazon

    One of the first things I noticed while working from home was the lack of water I'd been drinking. This one-litre water bottle indicates times throughout the day, so that you can turn drinking water into a habit. The bottle also tells you why you should be drinking water — which will hopefully guilt you into prioritising hydration.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $28.99.

    17. This six-minute diary, that will allow you to focus on mindfulness if you're feeling a little out of your head with everything that's going on.

    Amazon

    This journal encourages you to change your habits in order to achieve happiness, mindfulness and productive thinking. It's based on the mantra that just six minutes out of your day is enough time to assess where you're at and what you need to improve. It includes monthly check-in pages, habit trackers and weekly notes for your own thoughts and ideas, while giving you the information about positive psychology, self-reflection and changing habits.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $39.90.

    18. This deodorising drain stick, which will make avoiding the funky-smelling-sink a thing of the past

    Amazon

    These strips deodorise your drains, but they also break down organic matter and grease that cling to the sides of your pipes, including hair. You can use them in your bathroom sink, kitchen sink, shower drain, bath drain and anywhere else things get built up. Each pack includes 12 sticks, so you'll be covered all year.

    Buy a 4 pack from Amazon Australia for $20.98.

    21. And finally, this Thayers Witch Hazel that will soothe and tone your skin on a truly magical level.

    BuzzFeed / Anamaria Glavan

    This witch hazel is made from rose petal, aloe vera, vitamin E and witch hazel extract. You can also use it to remove makeup and it'll make your skin look clean and fresh AF.

    Promising Review: "I have combination skin that's prone to redness (especially around my cheeks and nose, with the latter being really annoying), plus the occasional pimple. After two weeks of regularly using this toner in my evening routine, I barely need concealer to cover the Crayola redness under my nostrils. PLUS! It's super effective as spot treatment. This stuff attacks your pimples with the same vendetta that Buffy used to destroy vampires: It works that well."
