    1. Oxo Good Grip's new laptop cleaning tools, which are actually fun to use to give your tech a much-needed pampering.

    I've tried both of these and I'm a little obsessed with using them! The three-in-one deep cleaning set has a handy microfiber cloth in a pouch, a firm-bristle brush to for crusted-on gunk (we all eat lunch at our laptops, admit it), and, my personal favourite, a clever pipe cleaner-like brush to get between your keys. I'm even more obsessed with the double-ended brush, which has a microfiber tip on one side and the WORLD'S SOFTEST retractable bristles on the other. Like, I use this thing more as a fidget toy and for petting the bristles than for cleaning. It's (understandably) backordered till mid-month, but I ordered a couple that'll show up in time for Christmas as stocking stuffers. My laptop is so gross that it's a little past hope, but these tools have definitely helped make clearing out crumbs easier and cleaning my computer more fun. I even use them on the rest of my desk!

    Get the deep clean set from Amazon Canada for $18.82.

    2. An ingenious double-layer container so you can transport all the parts of your lunch in a single bowl and prevent your meticulously prepped meal from being a soggy mess by your lunch break.

    3. A handy (literally) magnetic wristband for anyone who's ever wished they had an extra limb (or two or three) when working on a repair or DIY project.

    4. A convenient condiment fork you can store around the snack jar itself, so you won't ever find yourself ~in a pickle~ and have to stick your fingers in the brine.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.51.

    5. An endlessly reusable, non-adhesive hair remover roller you can just glide over your furniture to suck up the seemingly impossible amounts of fuzz your beloved fur baby deposits on a daily basis. Yes, you can now wear black pants and have company over! Maybe even both at the same time!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $33.95.

    6. A keychain-friendly car escape tool that could actually save your life in an emergency. This tiny miracle has both a seatbelt cutter and a window breaker to get you to safety ASAP.

    9. The ToiletShroom, a flexible unclogging tool for anyone who has ever used a traditional plunger and thought "There has GOT to be a better way."

    Amazon / Via

    Get one in a random colour from Amazon for $25.59.

    12. An ingenious blind cleaner brush to get into hard-to-reach crevices, because letting all that dust sit there just because blinds are hard to clean would be downright (window)sill-y.

    It helps you comfortably assume a squatting posture, which is the prime position for emptying your bowels with ease. Also, sorry for saying "stool."

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $24.99.

    15. A real-life invisibility cloak (!!!) that comes with a code for an app that'll allow you to use the cloak like a green screen to take Muggle-world-defying pics and videos. This is definitely one magical object you can't live without if you are an angsty teen boy fighting the forces of evil from wizard school and/or you're looking to become Master of Death.

    Amazon / Via

    You guys I am straight-up sobbing rn because it actually comes with a little note that says "Use it well." in Dumbledore's handwriting. 😭 The packaging is gorgeous and would also be perfect for gifting to someone to make them feel like they're living Harry's first Christmas at Hogwarts. It even comes with a little tripod to help them capture the magic!
