    1. A copy of The Old Farmer's Almanac 2020 Canadian Edition that's chock-full of facts so they can have the satisfaction of being right at least every once in a while.

    2. A portable massage cushion that'll ease the tension in their neck and shoulders after a long day, because all humans adore the gift of relaxation.

    3. An 11-in-1 stainless steel pocket tool for the practical sort who just likes to be prepared.

    4. A cold brew maker to save them big bucks on bean juice in the new year — all those early morning coffee runs are starting to add up! And having their favourite bevy in the comfort of their home? Heaven.

    5. A FitBit Versa 2 fitness watch that'll track their steps, heart rate, sleep, swim, plus it'll play music AAAAAND it's compatible with Alexa. This watch basically does it all.

    6. An essential-oil diffuser so they can surround themselves with scents that bring them to their happy place.

    7. This journal that asks for just one line a day for five years, so they create a fun little time capsule without the effort of hardcore journaling.

    8. Or this Q&A a Day journal you can fill out ~together~, which asks questions like "Where would you like to travel with your partner?" or the delightfully sappy (or potentially offensive, if you have some OPINIONS) "What does your partner's laugh sound like?"

    9. An Instax camera with a charming dose of retro flair, so they can channel their creativity anywhere and maybe snap some cute shots of you while they're at it.

    10. A fill-in-the-blank book to woo your S.O. with sweet, sweet compliments. Oh, nice things about me? You shouldn't have!

    11. A LifeStraw, a totally must-have for anyone who's even slightly outdoorsy. It turns any kind of water — river, lake, etc. — into clean, drinkable water. It doesn't even use batteries, so it'll be good to go whenever they need it!

    12. A cheese board for the significant other who loves to entertain. No more serving their beloved triple-crème on an old, chipped plate. And it has a hidden drawer for the serving utensils!

    13. A wine, can, and bottle holder so they can enjoy their favourite adult beverage from the comfort of their own tub.

    14. A Waterpik water flosser for getting their teeth so clean they make a *ding* sound when they smile like in a cartoon. The grown-up gift they never thought they'd be excited for, but hey — this is 30.

    15. A Squatty Potty, because the ultimate sign of true love is knowing each others' poop schedules. And trust me, once they try a Squatty Potty, they'll never look back.

    16. A very silly screaming goat for their desk — it'll bleat and scream at the touch of a button. Who ~wouldn't~ want this, honestly?

    17. An Amazon Prime membership, so they can order whatever the heck they want and have it delivered the very next day.

    18. An Aerogarden for the home chef whose ultimate dream is to grow their own herbs year-round, but who maybe doesn't have the greenest thumb. No shade, but the dry, brown basil on the windowsill speaks for itself.

    19. A mug warmer that regulates the temperature of coffee or tea they can nurse their drink for hours without sipping an ice-cold beverage. A feat of technology.

    20. A stovetop espresso maker for making rich, smooth espresso in under five minutes *and* feeling like the classiest kid on the block.

    21. A Panda planner to help make life a little more manageable for the partner with things to do and goals to achieve.

    22. A Nintendo Switch Lite so they can game on the go. They still talk about their Game Boy from 1999 with such fondness...I think it's time to bring the magic back.

    23. Some ~cheesy~ socks, because you can never, EVER have too many socks, especially when they come packaged in a pizza box.

    24. A bidet attachment for their toilet, because regardless of their tastes, everyone can get behind having a sparkling-clean booty.

    25. An external battery, because despite being the smartest, best person you know, their phone is ALWAYS about to die. Let's remedy that.

    Good luck gifting! Hope you don't get a dreaded medium reaction!!!!
