    1. This rubber stopper that'll snag loose strands and keep them from clogging your drain. With a single press of the top button, it'll turn into a regular plug. Simply press again to open the top and take advantage of its hair-catching abilities.

    It's great if you're always forgetting to pop in the drain catcher.

    Get it from Simons for $8.

    2. A trio of wall-mounted containers that'll help you organize your stuff or just give your plant babies a cool new home. They're incredibly easy to hang (even from the ceiling!), and can be paired with other sets to create a DIY living wall.

    Get it from Linen Chest for $24.95.

    3. A creamy tinted balm that'll add a flush of colour to your face. You can dab it onto your cheeks or smooth it over your lips, without worrying about streaks or your makeup getting cake-y.

    The colour's totally buildable and it won't lift your makeup if you're popping it on top. Plus, the formula is enhanced by aloe and green tea extract, making it super gentle on all skin types.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $26 (available in six colours). Use code FREESHIPCA to get free shipping on your order.

    4. This frosted window film that'll filter out sunlight, protect your furniture from UV damage, and give you some extra privacy to boot. Plus, you won't need to glop on any glue or chemicals — thanks, static cling!

    Amazon / Via

    Get a roll from Amazon Canada for $15.99+ (available in five sizes and five colours).

    5. A lint remover that'll de-pill your fave sweater, without damaging the fibres. It's completely manual and has a built-in lint brush, so you can keep all your fabrics clean and smooth.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "I have a dog that sheds, and about a billion blankets that also shed. While those things are great for me, they are not great for my couch. I bought this lil' doodad to help me de-fluff and remove all the annoying pills from my sofa, and boy does it ever work. It has a razor head on one end (along with three interchangeable razors of varying intensities) that I use to scrape away pills, and a classic velvety lint brush on the other. It's worked serious wonders on my furniture and I've even moved on to brushing down my crewneck collection with it." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99 (available in four colours).

    6. A chef's knife with a built-in herb stripper that'll save you tons of time during meal prep. No more picking each individual leaf off the stem!

    The stainless steel blade has a non-stick coating, so you'll be able to flip between stripping and chopping in a flash.

    Get it from Indigo for $14.50.

    7. A laptop sleeve with a flip closure that'll transform into a mini mousepad. Since it's extra slim, it won't make your bag feel bulky if you ever need to take your workspace on the go.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.90+ (available in three sizes, two styles, and five colours).

    8. An essential oil rollerball that's basically a PMS-fighting, fresh-smelling, migraine-busting, cramp-eliminating miracle. It's an awesome, all-natural remedy for those days when everything sucks, and you just need a little pick-me-up.

    I know it's ~technically~ supposed to be targeted at PMS symptoms, but in truth, it can be anything you want it to be. I've used it to ease cramps, relieve muscle tension, and as a drug-free solution to headaches. The blend of relaxing clary sage, zippy peppermint, floral geranium, and zesty lemon oil is a genius combination that not only feels great, but smells fantastic, too.

    The trimmer's adjustable, so you can choose between four different lengths when you're taking care of your bikini line. It's also completely waterproof! Even though each pack comes with a replacement razor, you'll need to stock up on batteries, too.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.97.

    11. A coffee press and tea infuser combo, because you shouldn't have to choose between them. The filter is built right into the lid and actually doubles as a handy scoop for removing grounds and tea leaves.
