    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "It comes with cleaning solution, a razor, and a scrubbing tool. I own this stuff and it works actually magic on stuck-on food and oil splatters. I've seriously never seen my burners look cleaner than they do after using this stuff, and I'm so happy it doesn't cost a fortune (but I'd buy it even if it did)." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.77 (as an add-on item).

    6. A set of gilded utensils that'll make every meal a special occasion. They have a super-sleek design and they're made with durable stainless steel that won't bend or rust over time.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. I started by using the specialty grout brush, which is costs a few extra $$, but then I decided to try it with the default brush and that seemed to work just as well, IMHO!" —Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.99.

    13. A foot mask that'll peel off dead skin in a gross-but-satisfying way. The booties are drenched in a special serum that's made with fruit and vegetable extracts to smooth and exfoliate your tootsies.

    @graceandstella / Via, Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say they started seeing results in just a few days and they were surprised by how much dead skin came off. The peel works over the course of a week to shed all the dead skin. Soak your feet for ten minutes before slipping into the foot mask. For best results, cover the booties with a pair of thick socks to create heat, and leave them on for an hour.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.99+. Available in six scents.

    14. A simple daily planner that'll help keep you on track. You can write down your priorities and list of tasks, along with your water intake and meals. And there's a space to track your achievements, too.

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    "This is an absolute must-have for anyone who wears glasses, because we've all been struggling with fogged-up lenses whenever wear wear face masks. You just breathe on both sides of the lens and use the cloth on it for about ten seconds — your glasses will be fog-free for about 24 hours. Now I can actually see when I go outside in my mask!" —Kat Angus

    20. A set of chic wired headbands that'll give your hairdo a little extra something.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The wire inside each one gives them a bit of structure, and I can twist the ends around each other so they won't unravel. They're so versatile! I can wear them around my head or wrap them around my ponytail to create a little bow. I love wearing them on the days when a simple ponytail or bun just won't do.

    Get a set of four from Amazon Canada for $13.99+. Available in nine colour sets.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "I read before going to sleep every night using my much-beloved Kindle Paperwhite. The problem is, sometimes I lie on my back and....drop my Kindle on my face. Frankly this happens when I'm falling asleep, but also when I'm just reclining and reading on the cough. So after I got a PopGrip for my phone, I thought...why don't I stick one on my KINDLE?! Long story short, it was a great idea, 10/10 recommend. I haven't dropped it on my face SINCE. Also, as a lefty, I find holding my Kindle with one hand and being able to turn the pages very annoying. My right hand is weaker and gets tired, but my left hand can't turn the pages on the right side. The PopGrip makes gripping with my right hand and turning the pages way easier. Pop one of these pretty bbs on your favorite device — it'll make things just a little bit easier." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.07.

    23. A makeup sponge holder that'll protect your makeup sponges from other questionable (nay, unsanitary) locations. It's made of soft, durable silicone, and has ventilation strips at the top that allow your sponge to dry faster after cleaning.

    Amazon / Via

    Plus, it's just a really cute way to store and organize your sponges on your vanity or bathroom counter.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.99+. Available in three colours.

    24. A faux leather crossbody bag that’s spacious enough to hold your essentials, but is also super stylish. There's a compartment on the back and a set of card slots on the inside, so you won't have to take your entire wallet with you.

    Get it from Joe Fresh for $16.94+ (originally $29). Available in two colours.

    25. An electric lint remover that'll gently remove stray fibres from your favourite sweaters and blankets, so they look as good as new. You can use it anywhere in your home, because it comes with a USB cord that'll plug into your laptop or power bank charger instead of a wall socket.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The lint remover comes with a power cord, an extra blade, a storage bag, and a cleaning brush.

    I got this because my favourite sweaters were starting to look kind of grungy. I tried using lint rollers, but they weren't picking up enough of the pills on my knits, and it was so time consuming. This electric shaver got rid of ALL the annoying pills and my sweaters look good as new. It's super gentle on clothes and it took way less time to get rid of the pills.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.99.

    26. A pack of super-thin camera covers for anyone who takes their online privacy and security extra seriously. The covers are compatible with most devices and are a sleeker alternative to the piece of tape you're currently using.

    27. A pair of tiny beauty spatulas that'll help you get every last drop of your beauty products out of your bottles, so you won't have to replace them right away. And when the containers are cleaned out, they'll be in the perfect condition to be recycled.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner, and the mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!

    Get a two-pack from Amazon Canada for $8.67+. Available in three colours and packs of four.

    28. A tiny Caboodle case that’ll store and organize all their beauty essentials and induce a bit of '90s nostalgia. There are five spacious compartments and a compact mirror inside. Plus, the lid stays snapped shut, making it the perfect makeup case to travel with.

    29. A foot spray that'll revive your tired feet with a blast of refreshing peppermint essential oils. Just spritz on this foot spray for a dose of minty-freshness whenever you need it.

    30. And finally, a multipurpose metal hook that'll keep you from touching shared surfaces like doors, elevator buttons, PIN pads, and ATMs. It's small enough to fit on your keyring or in your pocket, and it has a stylus tip, so you can even use it on devices with touchscreen.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "Each little detail is thoughtfully designed, from the large finger loop to the slightly curved tip — even the material itself is designed to keep your grabbers clean and free of microbes and bacteria. I was also really surprised by how ergonomic it is! I was able to open even the heaviest doors with relative ease, and thanks to the touchscreen tips, I could flip between paying for groceries and answering texts in seconds." —Victoria Kuglin
