    30 Gifts You Should Probably Just Keep For Yourself

    No gift receipt required!

    1. This cheery plant pot that'll give your teeny succulents a cute lil' home. It has a drainage hole at the bottom, meaning you won't ever have to stress about over-watering.

    2. A pair of reusable hand warmers that'll keep your fingertips from freezing off during the cold winter. They're made of double-layered cotton and unscented rice grains that'll retain heat for longer.

    3. A slim humidifying wand that'll turn any glass or bottle of water into a lean, mean, diffusing machine. It's whisper quiet and is equipped with handy timers, so you'll be able to set it and forget it.

    4. These oversized gold eye masks that'll give your entire eye area some major TLC (because undereyes shouldn't have all the fun). They're packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid and peptides that'll help give tired, puffy eyes a visible boost.

    5. This handmade laptop sleeve that'll protect your tech. Each one is ethically crafted by Syrian refugees and supports refugee communities around the world, making it one gift you can feel good about giving yourself.

    6. This Lindt hazelnut chocolate spread that will add a welcome dose of decadence to your breakfast (or snack). Unlike similar products, it doesn't contain a drop of palm oil (great if you're trying to be eco-friendly!).

    7. This chic ceramic French press that'll brew up a silky-smooth and grit-free cup of java. It’ll keep your coffee hot for longer than a glass or steel press, and it features a double-layered mesh filter that even the finest grind won’t escape.

    8. This airy cashmere scarf that'll swaddle you in coziness all winter long. It's hypoallergenic, softer than wool, and long enough to wrap around your neck a few times when the frosty breezes start up.

    9. These unbeelievably cute hoop earrings that'll make you the envy of your coworkers during your next Zoom call. They're hypoallergenic and lightweight, making them perfect for sensitive lobes.

    10. This leather satchel that'll fit all your odds and ends (yes, even your laptop). The adjustable shoulder strap means it'll even fit over your bulky winter coats!

    11. A delightfully crinkly linen pillow sham that'll keep your noggin cool and comfy during bed time. They're stonewashed, meaning they'll feel extra soft on your face the next time you wanna catch some zzz's.

    13. This mulberry silk eye mask that'll have you feeling like royalty the next time you tuck in for a snooze. It's naturally hypoallergenic, unbelievably soft, and extremely flexible to prevent unpleasant pinching or squeezing.

    14. An oversized sweatshirt that'll inject a bit of optimism into your year. It's made of a soft, stretchy jersey, and is lined with plush fleece, meaning it'll keep you cozy during all your holiday movie binges.

    15. These enormous bath cubes that'll infuse your bath water with the delectable scents of coconut, rose, and zesty citrus. They're made of an all-natural blend of coconut and olive oils, plus a bit of baking soda for *fizz*.

    16. These charcoal-infused blotting linens that'll help detoxify and mattify your complexion — all while absorbing excess oil, of course! Unlike their crunchy counterparts, these are silky soft.

    17. This thermal straightening brush that'll leave your mane looking glossy and smooth as hell. It's equipped with cool-touch bristles, so you won't singe yourself the next time you're doing your 'do.

    18. A set of flannel bed sheets that'll take the comfort and warmth of your fave flannel shirt from the closet to the bedroom. You'll feel like you're tucked away in a mountain cabin sipping a hot cocoa (even if you're stuck in the city).

    19. This adult colouring book that'll help you release some tension while having a giggle at these "triggered" animals. Reviewers love the humour and say colours show up beautifully on the shaded illustrations.

    20. A set of stainless steel whiskey stones that'll help you ~chill out~ after a long day (or year — who's counting?). Unlike regular boring ice, these cubes take less time to chill and won't dilute your drink.

    21. These glow-in-the-dark adhesive stars that'll transport you to a galaxy far, far away. The best part is that they're invisible during the day, so they won't mess up your decor vibes.

    22. These bestselling (and ultra cozy!) wool blend socks will keep your tootsies toasty, without making them unpleasantly sweaty. Reviewers love how they're super warm, soft to the touch, and don't pinch at the ankles.

    23. This pack of charcoal sheet masks that'll help any skin-related issues or concerns. They're packed with skin-loving serums and lots (and lots) of collagen for the ultimate spa treatment at home. Plus, they're free of synthetic fragrances, parabens, and sulphates.

    24. The cult-fave Bio Oil that'll help restore elasticity, eliminate uneven skin tone, and speed up the healing of scars. Reviewers keep raving about how it helped improve the look of their scars and stretch marks within a short amount of time (or even prevented them altogether)!

    25. This Cosrx poreless power liquid that'll help you achieve skin smoother than a baby's bottom. It has a refreshing cooling effect that'll help the appearance of pores and controls your skin's production of sebum (the gunky stuff that clogs pores).

    26. This seasonally-appropriate and über-handy 19-in-1 multi-tool that will prevent you from ever feeling screwed during an emergency. It even includes a bottle opener, so you're all set.

    27. These tiny herb shears that'll save you time and energy in the kitchen. Their spring-action hinge automatically opens after each cut to reduce hand strain. No more fiddling around with teeny tiny herb leaves and stems!

    28. These liquid chalk markers will help you keep all your bits and bobs organized (and you way less stressed). They dry quickly and won't smudge, meaning you could use them to label jars of homemade goodies, write to-do lists on your bathroom mirror, or even doodle holiday decor on windows.

    29. This chic set of stainless steel flatware that comes with a carrying case perfect for on-the-go meals. Do yourself a favour and skip the crappy plastic cutlery that comes with food deliveries and whip out these bad boys instead!

    30. And lastly, this USB-rechargeable and self-cleaning water bottle that'll bathe your water in purifying UV light at the touch of a button and eliminate up to 99.99% of bacteria and odour-causing germs.
