    5. A UV lamp that'll help you achieve a salon-quality gel mani at home. Unlike your typical box-shaped lamp, this one has a simple curved design that makes it easy to place over your fingernails or toenails.

    May Ning/BuzzFeed

    "I used to get my nails done all the time (I'm talking like every other week). But with nail salons closed, I decided to start doing my own manicures at home with the help of this UV nail lamp. I'm not a fan of regular polish (mainly because I'm just too impatient to let it dry), and I definitely don't have the skills to even attempt acrylic nails. So I thought gel polish would be a happy medium. I chose this one because it doesn't have a base, meaning I can just pop it over my feet when I'm painting my toenails." —May Ning

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.99.

    6. A set of bath bombs, if you believe no bath is complete without one. Each bomb will add a layer of creamy foam to your water and release a blend of relaxing essential oils into the air to help you relax.

    The set comes with four bath bombs and a bottle of bubble bath.

    Get a set of five from Indigo for $55.

    7. A blanket sweatshirt that is basically the love child of a blanket and a hoodie. It combines the best of both worlds: the perfect fit of an oversized sweater and the comforting weight of a fluffy blanket.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $50.99+. Available in ten colours.

    8. A pack of Rodial sheet masks made with bamboo charcoal that'll help remove dirt, excess oil, and dead skin cells from their dermis. It also has a blend of collagen, ceramide, and vitamins A and E to give their skin a little hydration boost, too.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    These sheet masks are just plain fun. The foamy bubbles look hilarious and they feel so gentle against my skin (almost like they're tickling my face). I love using them after I wash my face, so I can treat my skin to a deep clean, without having to do a lot of work or risk irritating my skin. And because it's a sheet mask, I can pat the excess serum into my skin, so they're really a 2-in-1 product. They leave my skin feeling squeaky clean AND super hydrated.

    Get a pack of eight from SkinStore for $85.80.

    9. A deep-cleaning Waterpik that's perfect for anyone who's really into their dental hygiene. This game-changing device will gently (but effectively) wash plaque and food out of your teeth and gums.

    "I can play games for hours without getting bored, and it can easily fit into my jacket pocket. I actually already owned the original Switch console and really loved it, but found it was a little too bulky and heavy to carry with me every day (plus my hands would get tired holding onto it)."—Sarah Aspler

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    It comes with three basil, three tomato, and three lettuce plant pods, so you can start growing right away. It’s also super easy to use: just insert the pods, plug it in, fill it with water, and 🎶 let it grow, let it grow! 🎶 You can also get different vegetable and plant pods, too.

    "I have one of these and it's super simple to use, even if you don't have a green thumb. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. It makes me feel like a successful gardener, my plants won't die if I forget to water them for weeks, and now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times." —Alice Prendergast

    17. A 2-in-1 hair dryer and volumizer that'll help you achieve that effortless, bouncy blowout that Cindy Crawford and Cher Horowitz perfected in the '90s. You can easily streamline your hairstyling process with this powerful, one-step hair tool.

    @revlonhairtoolsca / Via instagram.com, May Ning/BuzzFeed

    It has three heat and speed options, a ceramic coating, and tiny airflow vents to dry and style hair quickly without damaging or over-styling it. The oval shape of the brush and the nylon pin bristles detangle hair and let you get right down to the root to add extra lift.

    "If you're like me, you probably hate how long it takes to do your hair in the morning. Since buying the Revlon one-step hair dryer, I've cut my getting-ready time in half and said goodbye to my blowdryer and my straightener. If you hold it near your roots, you'll get more volume. If you pull it all the way through, you'll get a nice straightening effect. I personally like to roll it inwards for that tapered look." —May Ning

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $59.99+. Available in four colours.

    18. A Bluetooth speaker that may be small, but is mighty when it comes to sound. Thanks to the speaker’s 360° coverage, your music will remain rich and clear from any direction.

The lil' portable size is perfect so I can grab it and take it into the kitchen for baking jams™ or into my bathroom for my latest in-shower karaoke session (sorry neighbors). I also barely *ever* have to charge it. And yes, that *is* a Jane Austen action figure next to it." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $219.99.

Plus, when you're done, you can add fruit or soda flavoring to make any kind of drink you want. Not only do I feel great about the less waste I'm creating, but I do feel like I'm actually saving money. " —Abby Kass
