    1. I recently treated myself to this jade roller and scraper set and honestly, I have no notes.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via amazon.co.uk

    It’s made from 100% natural jade stone which stays cool to the touch and feels really soothing on the skin. I like to use the roller to massage my face for around 15 minutes in the evening, after I’ve taken off my makeup, and I use the Gua Sha scraping tool more sporadically (once or twice a week) to help work my serum and facial oil into my skin and give it a deeper massage.

    Price: £14.93

    2. And the same goes for this body brush, which really helps to get the blood circulation going in these cold, cold times.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via amazon.co.uk

    The brush is perfectly angled so that you can reach all areas of your body easily, and the 100% natural bristles are soft and gentle on the skin – but still firm enough to have an impact. The brush also comes with a helpful e-book to guide you through the lymphatic drainage process so you can really get the most out of using it daily.

    Price: £14.57

    3. This muddy shoes mat is just a really clever place to store your - you guessed it - muddy shoes.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The non-slip, space-saving design absorbs up to 200ml of water, so any mud from your dirty wellies will end up on the pads and not on your clean floor! It’s really easy to clean, and you can hang it up on the helpful hook when you don’t need it.

    Price £9.38 - £15.00 depending on size. It comes three sizes – suitable for kids up to UK size 12, suitable for adults up to UK size 6, and suitable for adults up to UK size 11.

    4. This removable wallpaper adds the perfect finishing touch to your room, if you really want a feature wall but have home decor-related commitment issues.

    Etsy

    It has a peel and stick design, which is really easy to put up and take down without leaving any messy residue. Customers are also crazy about the quality of the design, which looks more like an original hand-painted masterpiece than a printed adaptation.

    Price: from £25.78 for a 24 x 36inch section.

    5. This Anker Bluetooth speaker may be small, but she is mighty.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    With a 4.8-star rating from over 27,000 reviews(!) this mini Bluetooth speaker definitely deserves a shoutout. The powerful sound and deep bass of this little speaker is impressive! It’s also tiny so you can take it pretty much everywhere with you, and it gives you 15 hours of continuous playtime from a single charge.

    Price: £21.99

    6. Dishoom’s cookbook will have you recreating their famous chicken ruby and house black daal like a pro.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    I’ve tried making a few of the recipes myself and as someone who is rather culinarily challenged, I can confirm that even I produced dishes impressive enough for a fancy dinner party. It’s also really pretty to look at, and is full of interesting historical pictures and stories, making it a great coffee table book!

    Price: £17.12

    7. These chocolate bombes literally contain all you need for the perfect cup of hot chocolate.

    Firebox

    Just pop one into a mug of hot milk and stir, as the rich chocolate casing melts you’ll be met by an acceptably generous portion of mini marshmallows – more impressive (and way more easy) than making your favourite hot chocolate from scratch!

    Price: £9.99 for three bombes.

    8. This silicone bowl will help you make your popcorn, and hold it for you while you tuck in.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    A multi-purpose hero – you love to see it. Simply pop the bowl in the microwave, along with some popcorn kernels for instant, fresh popcorn. It’s collapsible too, so it won’t take up too much space when you’re not using it!

    Price: £12.45

    9. This cool print has an inspirational message and a unique design process.

    Etsy

    The artist likes to use specialist hand-mixed inks like pastel neons and golds that you don’t usually get in your average print. It makes her designs slightly more pricey, but also way more special!

    Price: £35.00

    10. I kind of need these satin pillowcases in my life, like right now.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The super soft material prevents any friction with your hair and skin as you sleep, meaning they’re less likely to tug at your skin, or make your hair static and tangled – so you can basically count these pillows as an extra step in your skin and hair care routines.

    Price: £6.98 for two.

    11. This lil' dumpling light is simply everything you’ll ever need in a lamp.

    Firebox

    Portable? Check. Warm, cosy glow? Check. Unbelievably adorable design? Double check.

    Price: £14.99

    12. This edible cocktail glitter will add that extra bit of sparkle to your fancy drinks night.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This stuff will have your cocktails and mocktails looking as sparkly, swirly, and magical as the amortentia love potion – without the potentially awkward side effects, of course.

    Price: £6.00

    13. These fiercely independent animal planters feed themselves – and look incredibly cute while doing it.

    Firebox

    There are four thirsty animals and miniature plants to choose from – they literally have everything you need to grow a small plant, and would make perfect little mascots for your office desk!

    Price: £10.99 each.

    14. This no-frills phone stand won’t get in the way of your charging cable.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The conveniently-placed holes keep wires safely out of the way, and the minimalistic design will go with pretty much any kind of decor – I highly recommend keeping one at your office desk, and also in every other room in your house.

    Price: £6.99 - £7.99 depending on colour.

    15. And while we’re on the topic, there’s also this fast-charging cable which is long enough that you won’t have to sacrifice comfort for convenience.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The wire itself is two metres long, and is flexible yet super durable, so it will be able to handle your everyday nips and scrapes without a problem.

    Price: £6.99 (it's also available in the one metre length for £6.59)

    16. This bracelet can be customised with your ~unique~ handwritten message.

    Etsy

    It would make a great personalised gift for somebody special. It’s surprisingly cheap considering the quality (it comes in a sterling silver, 18k gold-plated, or 18k rose gold-plated finish) and you can customise it to fit your wrist size perfectly, too.

    Price: £22.36

    17. This cloud-shaped ornament will actually help you to predict the weather!

    Firebox

    It’s not just a pretty face! The status of the liquid reflects the oncoming weather, so if white crystals form then rain’s a-coming, and if the liquid is clear then the sky will be too – genius!

    Price: £23.99

    18. You can drink this mushroom coffee for a healthier alternative to your morning brew.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The all-natural ingredients are vegan and free from sugar! These sachets use half the caffeine of regular coffee – customers say they feel more alert (and less jittery) while drinking this than their usual cup of coffee, and they swear the instant formula tastes pretty close to that of freshly-ground coffee.

    Price: £11.95 for 10 sachets.

    19. These insulated flasks are ridiculously chic, and won’t take up too much space in your bag!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    They’re perfect for holding both hot and cold drinks, have a 100% leak-proof design, and are really comfortable to drink from.

    Price: £14.99

    20. You can avoid single-use plastic bags by using these reusable produce bags to pack away your fruit and veg.

    Notonthehighstrees

    They’re made using 100% organic cotton, which allows the food to ~breathe~ while it’s stored, preventing condensation, and keeping it fresh for longer!

    Price: £1.50 - £4.50 each, depending on size.

    21. And this lunchtime tool kit that you can take with you everywhere to avoid using plastic cutlery and straws.

    Notonthehighstreet

    The kit comes with a reusable drinking straw (complete with a cleaning brush) and a knife, fork, and spoon cutlery set among other useful bits. All the tools are made from organic bamboo and come with a cotton drawstring bag to keep them in while you’re on the go.

    Price: £20.00

    22. This temperature control smart mug would make an amazing gift for your friend that appreciates a *proper* cuppa.

    Firebox

    It lets you pick your preferred temperature, which it will even remember for next time! This clever little guy can keep your drink hot for up to an hour when wireless, or all day when it’s on charge.

    Price: £71.99

    23. For all my fellow procrastinators – this planner is designed to *actually* make you more productive!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The planner offers practical solutions to all your procrastination woes, and genuinely helpful tips on how to be more productive – it’s even got little doodles - sometimes funny, and sometimes inspirational - to keep your mind from wandering.

    Price: £21.99

    24. You can clip this adorable reading light right onto your book, so you can read in the dark without ruining your eyesight.

    Firebox

    It comes in the form of an anglerfish, and that makes it just about the cutest darn thing I’ve ever seen.

    Price: £14.99

    25. This in-shower corner storage shelf looks really luxe and holds a surprising amount!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    It has a great space-saving design, with its flip-down hooks and slotted shelves. It’s self-adhesive too, so it will hold a strong grip onto glass, tiles, and other smooth surfaces without the need for any drilling or glue.

    Price: £16.99

    26. And finally, this foundation brush is super highly-rated and blends in foundation like a dream!
