    1. Glossier's Boy Brow to thicken and fluff your brows to perfection with just a swipe. If you've ever seen someone's brows and thought "I wonder how they get them so naturally flawless," there's a 99% chance the answer is Boy Brow.

    2. An Aztec Secret face mask you've almost definitely heard about by now. The hype is real and for good reason! The calcium bentonite clay sucks sebum out of pores, leaving your skin feeling smoother and breakouts feeling calmer.

    3. An Amazon Fire Stick, because if you're still paying for cable in 2021...maybe don't! The Fire Stick makes *any* TV a smart TV and gives you easy access to all one million of your subscription services.

    6. A Sea to Summit roll-top dry sack outdoorsy folks love because their uses are pretty much limitless. Waterproofing all of your gear is a must, and popping your electronics, food, and clothes in a roll-top assures you they'll stay safe. I even use my dry sack full of clothes as a pillow on backpacking trips, and can't recommend these any more highly for anyone planning any adventures this year.

    7. A pair of Allbirds Wool Runners that became mega-popular a few years back for a reason. They're supportive, great for warm or cold weather, and my own pair are barely showing signs of wear after two years of lovin'.
