    1. A timed stirring tool that'll do all the work for you. It rotates back and forth to make sure your soups and sauces don't get scalded at the bottom of your pot, and your arm can catch a break.

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $35.20.

    2. A copy of the bestselling book You Are a Badass, so you can drown out the pesky self-doubt thats rears its ugly head every now and then. It's a self-help book, but it's also hilarious and kind of like taking your mental health to a lovely movie date.

    "Sincero’s writing is hilarious, sarcastic, and real, which is why it resonated with me so strongly. She doesn’t just lay out a list of things to do to make changes in your life; she gives insight as to why you are the way you are, how to change the things you deem negative, and how to use the universe, or 'The Force,' as she calls it, to make massive life changes that will stick. After finishing the book for the first time a little over a month ago, I have actually already started feeling a hell of a lot more positive about my life and career choices. For example, in my line of work (travel blogging/Instagram) comparing yourself to others is so easy to do. Instead, now I focus solely on what I’m doing and how it makes me feel — which has done a lot for my mental health." —Taylor Fuller

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $18.50.

    3. A spinning makeup brush cleaner that'll get those brushes you've been ignoring for weeks clean and fluffed up again. It spins and washes brushes of any diameter and can even dry them afterwards, so all your beauty tools are left soft and free of bacteria.

    Urban Outfitters / Via fave.co

    Get it on Urban Outfitters Canada for $29.95.

    4. A Deep Sleep pillow spray that may help you manage your sleeping pattern better. It harnesses the soothing powers of botanicals like lavender to lull you into deep sleep, so you can wake up fresh and well rested.

    Sarah Rohoman/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Sarah Rohoman says, "I’ve dealt with anxiety and depression since my early twenties, which I've largely been able to manage in my everyday life through medication and therapy — but I continued to have a lot of anxiety around sleep, falling asleep, nightmares, insomnia, and waking up. I’ve tried different vitamins, supplements, and behaviour and routine changes, but the one thing that’s really helped me fall asleep more quickly and with less anxiety is this Deep Sleep pillow spray.

    I'm very much into aromatherapy, and I've found that by pairing the scent with my nighttime routine, it signalled to my brain that it was time to start winding down for the night."

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $34.

    5. An electronic label maker, so you can organize all the items in your pantry, fridge, or hobby supply box. TBH, the possibilities are endless when it comes to label makers. Go ahead and jazz up your phone or laptop, or use it to mark your charger so your partner doesn't steal it (again).

    Brother / Via fave.co, Brother / Via youtube.com

    It comes with six fonts, 309 symbols, 59 frames, 20 patterns, and nine different layout styles, and uses six AAA batteries (included) or an AC adapter (not included).

    Get it on Brother for $54.99.

    6. A T-shirt nightgown, so you can stop wearing the same pair of PJs you're bored of all the time. It's stylish enough to wear outside, too, so you won't even have to change if you're taking out the recycling or walking your pupper.

    Simons / Via simons-ca.c2ukkg.net

    Get it from Simons for $19.99 (originally $29.99). Available in three colours and sizes XS-XL.

    7. A set of food-saving stretch lids that fit the mouth of pretty much any bowl, so your leftovers can stay flavourful and fresh. There are four lids in the set, so you'll have everything ~covered~.

    Simons / Via simons-ca.c2ukkg.net

    They're also safe to use in the freezer, and you can stretch them directly over fruit, too, so your halved watermelon doesn't get soft and mushy.

    Get a set of four from Simons for $30.

    8. A set of special facial razors for anyone who loves their arches sculpted to perfection, but can't hit the salon right now. The razor is precise enough to shape the brow, but can be used all over the face as a dermaplaning tool to help absorb skincare better, too.

    9. A lunar phase yoga mat that'll help you get in the mood to meditate and stretch. Do a high-intensity workout or lie down and listen to some calming music.

    11. Some pimple patches, because if this past month has taught me anything, it's that not wearing makeup doesn't magically make your skin clear. These will literally suck out the gunk and bacteria from your zits and bring it to the surface, leaving your pimple shrunken and dried out in hours. Put 'em on before you hit the sack and you'll wake up to a miracle.

    Lookfantastic / Via tidd.ly, TaYa SunAz / Via youtube.com

    They're clear, so they can even be used under makeup.

    12. But if you're looking for a long-term clear skin solution, try the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 cleansing tool. It uses pulsations to dislodge gunk and makeup residue from the skin. There's no rubbing or scrubbing involved at all! It's the upgrade every skincare lover wants in their arsenal.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Here's what BuzzFeed writer Maitland Quitmeyer had to say about the one she owns: "The acne scars on my cheeks from a series of breakouts are fading fast, and I get new acne very rarely — they're more like a pimple here and there occasionally when I have to fly somewhere (curse you, dry airplanes) or get stressed or... who even knows why my skin freaks out sometimes. Never thought I'd ever put a no-makeup selfie on the internet, but that's how much I love this thing."

    Get it from Skinstore for $170.17.

    13. Some freeze-dried green juice tablets, if you've been finding it harder to pick up fresh greens as often as you used to. Just drop one in a glass of water, stir it up, and enjoy a refreshing, antioxidant- and vitamin-packed green juice that's as good as the fresh stuff. It has spinach, kale, aloe, spirulina, and other classic greens that you love downing after a run!
