    22 Things That'll Make Being Alone Right Now A Lot More Bearable

    Me-time, but upgrade it.

    1. A weighted blanket that actually feels like the warm embrace of a human. Reviewers say it made them sleep like a baby! Weighted blankets are believed to help with anxiety, stress, and insomnia.

    2. A single-serve coffeemaker from Keurig that'll make you your own barista. It'll make you regular coffee, coffee shots, lattes, and froth up hot OR cold coffee in seconds, so you'll never want to grab a Tim's cappuccino again.

    3. A Tamagotchi pet that's the cutest throwback to the '90s. This reinvention of the cult fave has a magical theme and you can explore the Tamagotchi Planet, build a family tree, play in-games, connect with your friends, and much more. There are millions of characters to choose from!

    4. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker that's also a can holder, so you can enjoy some music and a can of pop or beer while you condition your locks.

    5. A bamboo bathtub caddy that you can prop all your things on while soaking in a warm, luxurious bath. It's extendable, so it'll fit most tubs perfectly, and it has ridges to hold a glass of wine, a book/tablet, a candle, and other little bath time knickknacks securely.

    6. Add some fizzy bath bombs to that bath to enjoy a refreshing soak. These smell like cherry blossoms and they're loaded with vitamin E, so you'll be supple and moisturized when you emerge from the tub.

    7. A Nintendo Switch Lite, which is a total time-suck in the best way possible. This sibling of the Nintendo Switch may be small, but it doesn't compromise on its robust performance and offers a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience. And since it’s so portable, you won’t be stuck in front of the TV.

    8. A Satisfyer Pro 2 simulates oral sex, licking, and sucking, and can be used on different parts of the body to give you the most mind-blowing sexperience, all on your own!

    9. A facial steamer that'll help open up and cleanse clogged pores and provide hydration. The mist is fine enough to deeply penetrate your skin, and if you use your favourite serum afterwards, it'll sink in better.

    10. A huggable sloth plushie that can be used as a heating and cooling pad that'll help sore, tired muscles relax. It's filled with buckwheat grains and lavender, so it's especially great to microwave on those first few achy shark week days.

    11. A heated shiatsu massager that'll melt away the knots of pain in your neck and shoulders. You can tighten or loosen your grip on the arm straps based on the intensity of deep tissue massage you prefer. It can also be used on other parts of your body.

    12. A thumb piano (aka "kalimba") that's much easier to learn to play compared to other instruments. It can even be connected to an amplifier! Flick the prong keys with your thumbs and play a whimsical, indie-sounding melody. 🎶

    13. A pet carrier backpack that'll allow you to take your little four-legged friend on strolls. It lets small pets look outside, thanks to the large clear window.

    14. A hot air popper, so you can make a classic movie snack in minutes. You don't need oil or butter to make it, but the spoon tray on the top can melt butter while the kernels pop for a delicious drizzle.

    15. A book called Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen, so you can make your own trippy treats at home and do it well! And it doesn't only have the basic sweet stuff. You can even cook up some delicious savoury snacks to send yourself to dreamland.

    16. If you're a documentary buff, check out CuriosityStream. It's a streaming service dedicated to documentaries only, and an annual subscription is currently on sale.

    17. A treadmill, because you know you've always wanted one. This bad boy folds compact, so you can store it easily after use. The best part is you can catch up on your fave shows while you work out.

    18. A reusable toaster bag that'll help you make a yummy grilled cheese sandwich without the stress of washing pans and utensils. Just slip the whole sandwich in a bag and let the cheese get gooey in your toaster. In no time, you'll be ready for a crispy, mess-free lunch.

    19. An in-home gardening system that'll let you dip your toes into plant parenthood. It'll bring you fresh herbs and greens no matter what the weather. There's no soil, so there's no mess, and the UV lights provide the plants all the "sun" they'll need.

    20. A soft serve maker that will help you create yummy vegan and dairy-free alternatives to ice cream, froyo, and sorbet. Most ice cream makers come with a large barrel to make enough ice cream for a whole family, but this handy, non-bulky device will give you exactly the amount of dessert you want.

    21. A 3-in-1 burger patty press that makes shaping stuffed patties a quick, easy, and efficiently done task. Imagine popping some cheese and jalapeños into this bad boy and grilling the patty of your dreams. 🤤

    22. And lastly, a massage mat that'll melt you into a puddle of relaxation. It vibrates to release tension from sore muscles all over your body, and can be rolled for easy storage. Plus, it's long enough to care of 🎶 your neck, your back, you lumbar, aaand your legs. 🎶
