    1. A John Frieda hot air brush that has allowed a multitude of people to skip the blowout bar forever and give themselves a killer style in the comfort of their own home.

    I'd heard a TON of great things about the hot air brush but admittedly didn't fully believe it until I got one for myself. I was thrilled to have a dramatically short bob until I remembered just how hard they are to style. I'm nearly useless with a round brush and hairdryer. The hot air brush combines two unwieldy tools into one light, easy-to-manage one that's simple to use and greatly cuts down on my morning styling time. I recommend letting your hair air dry most of the way before finishing with this. Even a pass over dry hair helps get my bedhead into shape. Amazing. I have short hair and the 1" version is perfect.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $51.99+ (available in two sizes).

    2. A wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil to hide dings and scratches and add some healthy natural luster to basically anything in your home that's made of wood.

    3. An Amazon Fire Stick that makes it so easy to access all of your subscription services in one place. Love anything that somehow makes watching TV even easier.

    4. Allbirds wool runners so you can keep your feet super comfortable while letting everyone know that you listen to SO many podcasts.

    Allbirds

    I know these have been hyped for a long time, but like....I really, really, really love my Allbirds. I've had them going on three years, have put a TON of miles on them, and they're somehow showing no signs of aging. They stay shockingly clean, are super light, and are of course mega comfortable, which is what skyrocketed them to fame in the first place. I used to love them especially for days when I was traveling, but I also love them for bopping around the neighborhood and even wearing around the house when my feet want some support.

    These babies won best casual sneakers in the mid-priced category on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get them from Allbirds for $135 for women's sizes (available in sizes 5–11 and 11 colours) and $135 for men's sizes (available in sizes 8–14 and 10 colours).

    13. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer — I know, I know, "Why do I need this tool that literally does the job of a knife?" It perfectly halves, de-pits, and slices avocados easily and beautifully, and that sounds pretty freaking good to me.

    "The plastic blade dug right in and it was really easy to cut all around the avocado. I actually nicked myself with the blade (because it was so slippery) but it didn't cut my skin or hurt at all. I didn't need to use a lot of force to get the three spikes into the pit and it came out with a twist. AND FINALLY, THE SCOOP: Pretty good considering the avocados weren't fully ripe. It looked to be going perfectly at first, but got difficult near the bottom of the avocado. TBH: It probably would've been perfect if I left my avocados to ripen for one more day." —Sarah Aspler
