    1. An ultrasonic humidifier shaped like a lightbulb that's about the size of your palm, so it's easier to move around the house than larger humidifiers. It'll run for about six hours before it needs refilling, and it comes with decorations for you to create a little landscape inside of it.

    You can choose whether you want it to cycle through seven colours, or keep it locked on one colour.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $26.29.

    2. Or a portable essential oil diffuser that's smaller than a smartphone and also easily portable. It has two light modes, two mist modes, and will automatically shut off when the tank is empty, so you don't have to worry about it overheating.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $37.99+ (available in two colours).

    3. A lightbox that'll help you decorate your space with sassy phrases or words of encouragement. It's about the size of a piece of A5 paper, so it won't take up as much space as bigger lightboxes. You can choose how you want your sign to be lit — either with a classic white, one of the colours of the rainbow, or a rotation of all of the colours.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $29.99.

    4. A Magic 8 ball that'll help you answer the questions to life's most burning questions. It's less than 4 cm tall, so you can toss it in your pocket or bag for decision-making help when you're on the go. Just give it a shake and it'll let you know if your crush likes you back or not (I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!).

    5. A retro-style handheld Tetris game that'll take you back to the days of playing arcade games at the mall. It'll give you the arcade experience from the comfort of your couch, without actually having a full-sized machine at home.

    6. A teeny waffle maker that has over 33,000 five-star reviews. It creates waffles that are smaller than your palm (the perfect size when you need a little snack), and the machine itself takes up much less space than a giant Belgian waffle maker.

    15. A dozen LED lights that'll help you to not stub your toes when you get up in the middle of the night. Each light is about the size of an egg and transitions through the colours of the rainbow.
