    1. A roll of reusable paper towels that you can use over 120 times before you throw them away. They're made of bamboo, making them incredibly durable and absorbent so you can even use them with your Swiffer to clean your floors.

    2. An ice roller that'll work quickly to reduce puffiness, promote blood circulation, and alleviate migraines. You can keep the roller head in the freezer so it's always ready to go or pop it in for 15 minutes before you're ready to use it.

    3. A small konjac sponge that'll cleanse and exfoliate your skin in one step. It's made from vegetable fibres that are very gentle and won't irritate your skin like a typical face scrub. Plus, it's infused with rose extract to reduce redness, making it great for anyone with sensitive skin.

    4. A set of wool dryer balls that are an eco-friendly alternative to fabric softener. They'll also help your clothes dry faster and reduce wrinkles and static. The bigger your load, the more balls you should put in your dryer.

    5. A pack of bra extenders that'll give you a little extra breathing room. They're super easy to install and they come in three neutral colours that'll probably match most of your bras.

    6. A pack of reusable food wraps that'll render your plastic wrap and aluminum foil obsolete. They can easily be moulded with the heat of your hands and are perfect for small food items (like cheese, fruit, and sandwiches).

    7. A pair of microfibre gloves that'll make cleaning all those hard-to-reach spots a lot easier. They'll give you more control than a brush and they're soft enough that you can use them on any surface.

    8. A glass water bottle that'll make you want to ditch single-use plastic alternatives once and for all. It has a narrow spout that'll make it easy to drink from, along with a colourful silicone cover that'll save the bottle from breaking if you drop it.

    9. A plate cover that'll keep your food from splattering all over your microwave's walls. It has little holes on the top to let out steam and it folds down to one inch when you're not using it.

    10. 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.

    11. A snowflake-shaped multipurpose gadget that you can reach for instead of lugging your toolbox around the house. You can use it to open boxes, tighten screws, open bottles — just to name a few.

    12. A reusable shopping bag that'll help you cut down on how many plastic bags you use. Each one can hold up to 50 pounds and folds into a tiny square so you can easily store it in your purse or backpack.

    13. 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.

    14. A LifeStraw if you're someone who spends a lot of time outdoors. It'll make water drinkable by filtering 99.999999% of bacteria and parasites so you can enjoy a refreshing drink of water while you hike or camp.

    15. A pair of glass watering globes that'll keep your plant babies happy and hydrated so you won't have to water them for a few days. They'll look like little glass stones that'll add a chic touch to your plants.

    16. 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.

    17. A wide roller stamp that'll cover all the private information on your papers and envelopes with a thick, dark ink. Now you can recycle your mail, without worrying about of someone stealing your personal information. No shredder needed!

    18. A pair of blue light-blocking reading glasses that are great for anyone who spends most of day staring at a computer. They can help reduce eye strain, irritation, and even stop headaches in their tracks.

    19. A wooden page holder that'll help hold your book open, because book-induced hand cramps are a thing. Now you can comfortably read your book with one hand for a really long time without it getting sore.

    20. A silicone food bag if you want to take your favourite munchies to go. It has an airtight seal that'll keep your snacks from leaking so you won't have to clean up crumbs or fruit juice from the bottom of your bag later.

    21. And finally, a facial roller that'll render your blotting sheets obsolete. The volcanic stone will help absorb excess oils on your skin, leaving you with a flawless matte finish. Plus, the rolling action will give your face a mini massage, which is always a bonus.
