    2. A pack of reusable cotton rounds that won't fall apart while you're using them. They're super absorbent, so they're great for removing makeup or applying toner, and you can throw them in the washing machine when they get dirty.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "These cotton rounds have come in super handy when it comes to taking off my foundation and eye makeup at the end of the night, and are only a little bit more expensive than a pack of wipes. The pack comes with three large rounds and two small rounds. The small ones are soft on both sides while the large ones have a bit of a rougher texture on one side of them, making them great for light exfoliation. Honestly, I even use them when I'm not wearing makeup to get rid of any dirt or grime that's magically found its way onto my face over the course of the day." —Alice Prendergast

    3. A sink strainer that'll catch all the bits of foods before they head down your drain. It's made of stainless steel, so it'll probably match your kitchen sink perfectly. It also has a little basket with perforated holes at the bottom to collect food and keep water flowing.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    "I bought this for myself (since I'm clearly a REAL adult) and OMG. This thing REALLY works. Usually when my husband makes sauce from scratch I'm left with chunks of tomatoes throughout my sink and water that WILL NOT drain — that was until I bought the SinkShroom. My mom was so impressed she bought one, too. It's a serious game-changer." —Heather Braga

    Essence Gant/BuzzFeed, @niveausa / Via instagram.com

    "Nothing beats Nivea Creme because it's rich, but doesn't clog your pores, and it lasts all day. I like the mini tins because they're small enough to fit in my bag, or even in my wallet, and it makes keeping my hands soft that much easier. This is especially important after I wash my hands or after I walk in the New York cold for more than five minutes and my skin is screaming for moisture. It's one of those small things you're glad to have on you at all times." —Essence Gant

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "That's my Jetz-Scrubz, which I've used for about two months now — and it literally shows no signs of wear or tear. Now, I have a dishwasher and don't cook too many tough-to-clean dishes, but I would have gone through at least two regular cellulose sponges in that time. And this Jetz-Scrubz is still kicking; I bet it lasts at *least* four months total, if not six...or more." —Natalie Brown

    10. An ergonomic laptop stand that'll elevate your computer to a more comfortable height. It's wide enough to support laptops as wide as 15 inches, and it has two small, but strong arms that will allow for proper ventilation. It'll also create a little nook underneath where you can store small office items.

    11. A Squatty Potty that'll make it WAY easier to poop. The stool will help you into a comfortable squatting position, which is supposed to be better for your body than sitting. Reviewers say it helps reduce the amount of time they spend in the bathroom.

    It helps prevent straining and helps with hemorrhoids, constipation, and bloating.

    “Yes. I used the Squatty Potty while pooping and it made pooping easier. It took a day or two to get used to, but within a week of using it, I noticed quite a positive difference in my, uh, evacuation. It took less effort and less time, and really just made the whole process a lot more pleasant. In fact, within a week, it started feeling strange to use other toilets WITHOUT the Squatty Potty. I actually prefer using it now.” —Kat Angus

    12. A stoneware coffee maker that'll make you actually want to get out of bed every morning. Just add a paper filter before your coffee and water to brew a single cup of joe right into your mug.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "I started using this moisturizer in my teens, when my skin would freak out at the drop of a hat. It smells great and absorbs right into the skin, so you're never left with a greasy or tacky feeling on your face. Even though I sometimes change up my moisturizer, I inevitably come back to this one, and within a week, my skin always (ALWAYS) looks good enough that I feel confident going makeup free. And don't even get me started on the built-in SPF! I am the WORST at remembering to put sunscreen on, so having it in my moisturizer is a true blessing. If I could shout about this moisturizer from the rooftops, I would!" —Victoria Kuglin

    18. A pair of blue light-blocking glasses that are great for anyone who spends most of day staring at a computer. The lenses filter out blue light, which helps reduce eye strain and irritation.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, BuzzFeed / Jasmin Suknanan

    "Over the last few weeks, I had been dealing with headaches and super tired eyes even though I had been getting my fair share of sleep. Seeing as I'm on a computer all day, this didn't really surprise me. I put the glasses on one morning when I already had a headache and heavy-feeling eyes before 10 a.m. and within about 30 minutes, I felt relief. NO headache, and NO more tired eyes! I can work even longer without feeling like I need to look away before my screen burns holes into my eyes, and I'm in an overall happier mood because I don't have headaches anymore — in fact, since getting these glasses two weeks ago, I haven't had a single headache or moment of tired eyes!" —Jasmin Suknanan

    21. A set of reusable silicone straws that'll replace all the single-use plastic straws you'd normally use. They're super flexible, easy to clean, and a great alternative to metal straws, which can be hard on teeth and change temperature depending on whether you’re drinking a hot or cold beverage.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I love the variety of colours in this set, and they're a bit longer and wider than the metal ones I have, so I can use them in any cup or bottle to drink water, juice, smoothies—literally anything. I also love that they're soft and flexible. I can bend them into a smaller size if I'm using a smaller bag, without worrying about them warping or losing their shape. I love using them so much that I have no intention of returning to plastic straws. Ever." —Kaysey Davis

    23. A pack of screen protectors that'll save your phone screen from cracking if you drop it. They’re made of tempered glass, making them extra durable, and they’re also super thin, so they won’t interfere with the sensitivity of your touchscreen.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The installation process took a bit longer than I thought it would. The screen protectors came with an alcohol wipe to clean and disinfect my phone, a cloth to dry it, a sticker to catch dust, and a guiding edge to help me line up the screen protector with my phone. AND it comes with a link to an entire video that guided me through the process. The screen protector took all the blows and when I couldn't stand looking at the cracks on it, I just peeled it off and replaced it with a new one. My actual phone screen is still in mint condition, and I'm free to be a messy, phone-dropping klutz without dealing with the consequences." —Kaysey Davis

    25. A pack of face brushes that'll gently, but effectively cleanse your skin. The soft bristles will help remove dead skin, without irritating your face. And it has a little handle on the back that'll make it easy to hold it when it's wet.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "The bristles are super delicate, which means I don't feel like I'm sloughing my face with steel wool every night. There's also a small section of silicone nodes that are great at massaging away stubborn makeup. I've also noticed that I only need about half as much product as I'd normally use to clean my face — a true blessing for anyone who enjoys saving a bit of money each month." —Victoria Kuglin
