    *buys everything for myself, in secret*

    by ,

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Rocketbook, which is a reusable notebook can transports their handwritten notes directly to their phone/laptop. Plus, if they run out of space, they can erase everything by putting in the microwave.

    Amazon / Via

    It comes with an app where instantly send your handwritten notes to all of your favourite cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud and more. And here's the kicker: when your notebook is full, you can erase everything in it by putting it in the microwave. Yes, you read that correctly. You can zap and reuse your entire notebook up to five times. Thanks, Science!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $34.45. Available in several other sizes and colours, including this little handy notepad.

    2. The Comfy, a reversible blanket-slash-sweatshirt that's perfect for pretty much anyone who likes to lounge around under a blanket, but wishes the blanket followed them everywhere they went.

    Amazon / Via

    It's designed to be big enough that it covers you up completely, if you tuck your feet under you on the couch, and of course it's machine washable and dryable.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $45.99+ (available in adult and kids, and in several colours/patterns).

    3. A set of two miniature spatulas to stuff an aspiring makeup-artist's stocking, because they make it easy to use each and every drop of primer, foundation, and other products.

    Of course it's great for jars of mustard and peanut butter, too! BTW, these do actually work, like, incredibly well — here's one BuzzFeeder's review.

    Get the set of two — one with a 6-inch handle, and another with a 12-inch handle (for different tasks!) — on Amazon Canada for $34.82.

    4. A silicone Frywall for the home chef who loves trying new recipes but detests the necessary cleanup afterward — they'll be able to easily cook all kinds of food in oil without coating the entire stovetop.

    Amazon / Via

    It's dishwasher safe, can withstand sustained temperatures of up to 450°F, and rolls up into a cup-sized sleeve for easy storage. Note that it's designed for 10-inch pans, and it doesn't work with downdraft stoves (i.e. stoves that have a vent that pulls into the floor, instead of the ceiling).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.02. Available in several other colours.

    5. Pop-up cards that don't just say just the right thing — they're basically a little gift in and of themselves.

    Amazon / Via

    Get the Christmas Tree Village card for $18, the hockey goalie card for $18, or browse Lovepop's full card selection, all on Amazon Canada.

    6. The Squatty Potty toilet stool (yup!) because A) it'll be hilarious when they unwrap it and B) it really does align everything in a natural way to make pooping easier and faster.

    Amazon / Via

    We know it makes a difference because several BuzzFeeders own and love these — read one editor's review.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $24.99. Also available in bamboo.

    7. An infinitely-reusable silicone zip bag that'll help them use less plastic every day, and could save hundreds (if not thousands!) of single-use plastic bags from ending up in the trash.

    Amazon / Via

    Of course, they're totally dishwasher safe. (I have a couple myself and have used 'em for several years now — they're in great shape and I run them through the top rack all the time!)

    Get the sandwich bag for $13.65 and the sous vide bag for $23.59 on Amazon Canada. Available in several other sizes and colours.

    8. A SmartGurlz coding doll that uses an iPad app to teach beginning programming concepts. Soon your kid will have their doll zooming everywhere on the scooter!

    Amazon / Via

    Get the the doll and scooter from Amazon Canada for $75.86. Available in several other colours.

    9. A set of seat gap fillers so *you* can be the one that saves them from the frustration of dropping their phone down the crack of no return for the umpteenth time — or from their teenager accidentally losing a few pieces of popcorn leftover from a movie, never to be recovered.

    Amazon / Via

    Because it fits over the car's seat belt holster, it moves along with the seat as they adjust it — which means they can stuff it in and forget about it, at least until it saves a half-eaten lollipop from disappearing into the abyss.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon Canada for $44.75.

    10. A snug-fit undershirt for anyone who's self-conscious about their sweat because it has built-in padding that soaks up sweat before it has even a chance of forming a ring on dress shirts.


    Reviewers, even those who sweat profusely, swear by it. One reviewer said that they no longer have to worry about sweating through dress shirts and loves how it doesn't feel bulky or warm.

    Get one on Amazon Canada for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and four colours).

    11. A whole-grain, protein-packed pancake and waffle mix that you can either bake for everyone *or* neatly wrap for your friend who's really into exercising but also loves to bake, because it works as a substitute for flour.

    Amazon / Via

    Last Christmas my family bought a few boxes of their buttermilk mix to make pancakes with, and they were genuinely really delicious! I've had them every once in a while since then, too, and enjoy them every time. They definitely keep me full for longer than regular pancakes do (thanks to the 14g of protein they pack per serving, 21g if you make 'em with milk and eggs, which I recommend anyway, for the texture).

    Get a box of Buttermilk Flapjack Mix on Amazon Canada for $13.21. Also available in a pack of two and several other flavours, including dark chocolate and blueberry muffin mix.

    12. A UV phone sanitizer because besides the holidays, it's also cold and flu season, and it could lower their chances of getting sick, at least a little bit (and your chances too, if you live with them). It may not get rid of all the smears of grease on their screen, but it will annihilate a bunch of germies every night.

    Amazon / Via

    A few years ago, a BuzzFeeder tested a bunch of our phones for germs, and the person with the cleanest phone used a similar product (everyone else, well, let's just say it's pretty gross).

    Get one on Amazon Canada for $105.45. Available in several colours.

    13. Some high-fidelity, nearly-invisible earplugs designed to cut down on the decibels during all your favorite concerts so your hearing stays protected without completely muffling the music's clarity and sound quality.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say they also help people with autism, PTSD, and sensory overload be more comfortable in loud environments! Supposedly they work because of special sound-cutting filters; when you order a set they come with three size options for comfort. Plus they're reusable and hand-washable.

    Get them on Amazon Canada for $37.95.

    14. A set of two magnetic glasses holders so your dad will finally always know exactly where he left his reading glasses.

    Amazon / Via

    Get the set of two on Amazon Canada for $23.50.

    15. A ~water enhancer~ that says it optimizes the water (with certain minerals) for brewing the tastiest cup of coffee possible, no matter how they brew their morning cup.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say the change is taste is super noticeable, compared to regular tap water. They love how it smooths out the flavours and removes bitterness.

    Get a box of 12 capsules (which makes 12 gallons of water) on Amazon Canada for $19.76.

    16. A silicone wedding band so your S.O. can leave their ring someplace safe while they do whatever, whether they're a busy mom, a mountain climber, a Crossfitter, a hairdresser, or just want a super comfy everyday ring.

    Amazon / Via

    Several reviewers mention that it stretches some over time and recommend ordering a size down.

    Get one on Amazon Canada for $24.99. Available in sizes 4-9 and in18 colours.

    17. A pack of fizzy cleaning tablets for your friend who's always carrying around a giant metal water bottle or coffee mug.

    Amazon / Via

    All you do is fill your container with warm water, drop in a tablet (or two, if you're cleaning something bigger than a water bottle), wait half an hour, and rinse. Also, based on the reviews it seems to work best on metal or ceramic, and not so well on plastic.

    Get two packs of 12 tablets on Amazon Canada for $30.55.

    18. The Bug Bite Thing, a suction tool, because it lets them gently extract at least some of the pesky venom that makes the bite itch, so even if the bite doesn't go away completely, they don't feel such an urge to scratch.

    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed / Via

    Bek, an editor here at BuzzFeed, owns one of these and notes that while it doesn't completely get rid of bites, it does put a halt to the itching. It works with mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, chiggers, and sea lice! Note that some reviewers say the suction can be really strong, so try to use it gently; and the company doesn't recommend using it on your neck or face, because it can cause bruising there. (Read the full directions before using it!)

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $28.99.

    19. A bottle emptying kit because it will let them get every penny's worth of product out of their favourite shampoos, lotions, and even food products like honey or that gourmet salad dressing they're always talking about.

    Amazon / Via

    The kit comes with six adapters (to make them fit a variety of bottle neck sizes) and six of the purple dispensing stands.

    Get the kit on Amazon Canada for $33.48.

    20. Nerdwax for anyone who is getting real tired, real fast, of their glasses slipping and sliding down their noses. No offense glasses, but how am we supposed to, uhh, SEE if you keep falling down?

    Amazon / Via

    It helps to first wipe off surface oils from the glasses. It can last one hour to all day depending on how much you apply, and a single tube of Nerdwax can last for about six to eight months.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99. Also available in a pack of two or three.

    21. And finally, a Michel Mercier Detangler designed with 428 bristles at 32 different heights that apply the correct pressure to quickly detangle your wet or dry hair while gently massaging your scalp.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99. Also available in one model specifically designed for thick hair and also one for fine hair.
