    12. The Two Faced Born This Way concealer that'll cover up any spots (or the fact that you only got 2 hours of sleep last night). It's also great for highlighting or contouring, since it comes in 29 shades.

    13. A tub of matcha powder that'll give you a boost of energy in the morning when mixed with water or milk. It's culinary grade, so you can also use it to try out some yummy matcha-flavoured food recipes.

    14. An air fryer that'll help you make your breakfast potatoes with a fraction of the oil (and in half the time). It has two simple dials (for time and temperature), if you're all about low-maintenance cooking without all the bells and whistles.

    15. A vibrating face scraper that uses high frequencies to gently dislodge trapped dirt and sebum in your pores. You can also use it after applying your skincare to help it absorb better.

    19. A Roomba i7+ robot vacuum that'll take care of the annoying chore for you, so you can spend more time doing things you actually enjoy. It comes with a charging and dirt disposal base, so once you set it up, you can forget about it for months at a time.

    20. A tub of e.l.f. putty primer that has a satin finish and is packed with hydrating ingredients (like squalene). A layer of this stuff under your foundation will create an instant smooth effect and help to reduce any cakiness. It’s like an Instagram filter in a jar.

    21. A versatile Amazon Echo Show that you can use to set alarms, keep a calendar, check the news, and more, so you’ll be up to speed and ready for your day before you’re even out of bed. And if someone you know has one, you’ll be able to video chat with them!

    22. A silk pillowcase that'll prevent your hair from drying out and getting tangled while you sleep. The cool, smooth fabric will help your skin and hair retain moisture, giving the term "beauty sleep" a whole new meaning.

    23. This curling iron that'll help you achieve the bouncy curls of your dreams. Because it's tapered, you can control the size of your ringlets by wrapping your hair closer to the base or farther along at the end.

    24. This Sol de Janeiro hair and body mist that smells like a tropical vacation. It's the same scent as the über-popular Bum Bum cream, and it lasts even longer when they're paired together.

    25. A 5-in-1 adapter, if your computer just doesn't have enough ports. It works instantly — just plug it in and watch your devices connect.

    26. A magnetic phone mount that's so discreet, it'll look like part of your car. Since it's round, your phone will get a full range of motion when you're using it.

    27. A charging station that'll keep all your devices organized and your desk free from cables. It'll also help you find all of your gadgets, since they'll all be docked in one place.

    28. This vertical cap organizer that'll hook right onto any door or cabinet, if your closet is already too full. It'll keep your caps in tip top shape, since they won't be getting smushed in a box.

    29. And finally, a laptop stand that'll help your computer stay cool when it's been working overtime. It's adjustable in two areas, so you can move it around to fit the height and angle that works for you.
