    1. A handy moisture meter that'll help you avoid overwatering (and keep your nails clean in the process). It has an extra-long probe sensor, so you'll be able to monitor for root rot, too!

    Reviewers say it's a must-have for any novice gardener and has helped take the guesswork out of plant care. Plus, it comes with a watering guide for over 200 plants.

    Each hanger is also equipped with a swiveling hook, which means you won't need to re-hang your shirts to get them all neatly lined up. You can even get some for your kiddos, too.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    I am uncompromising in my addiction to shellac (I even do it at home), so getting a treatment for my poor claws was a no-brainer. This one feels really silky, absorbs quickly, and keeps my nails from snapping off *right* when I get them to the perfect length. Since my cuticles are moisturized, too, I'm less tempted to pick and peel them. We call that a win-win!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $20.92.

    4. These reusable towels that'll make you wonder why you ever bought regular paper towels in the first place. One roll of these super-absorbent and extra-strong cloths can replace up to 60 rolls of traditional paper towels.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say they're tough enough to use in the garage or to clean dirty doggo paws after muddy walks. Bonus: The roll will fit on your existing dispenser.

    Get a roll of 20 sheets on Amazon Canada for $14.99 (available in two packs).

    5. This handy house plant guide that'll help you keep your greenery alive. Reviewers love that the wording is simple and succinct, so you won't need to learn any technical mumbo-jumbo to rescue your plants from the brink of death.

    7. A glassware brush that'll reach right down to the bottom of tall cups and wine glasses. Reviewers say it easily removes lipstick and water stains from delicate glassware, and can even be used to scrub pots and pans (without damaging any non-stick finishes).

    Amazon / Via

    Plus, the layered cellulose fibres won't shred like regular sponges do. Make sure you get yourself a replacement head, too!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $20.36+ (available in two colours).

    8. An antioxidant-rich facial cleanser that's basically like a green juice for your face. It forgoes synthetics and chemicals for yummy ingredients like kale, spinach, and green tea to detox your skin and leave it looking (and feeling) better than before.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $16+ (available in two sizes). Use code FREESHIPCA to get free shipping on your order.

    9. A sweary colouring book that'll keep your hands occupied, while giving you a laugh in the process. It has 50 profanity-filled pages that'll help you colour away your stress (with plenty of blank pages for doodling).

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say it stays flat while they're colouring, and love that the pages are single-sided (meaning no markers will bleed through to your next page). Make sure you grab some markers while you're at it.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.54.

    10. A silicone phone grip that'll keep your device from slipping out of your hands. Reviewers love that it's stretchy and slim, meaning it'll fit hands of all sizes (and tuck easily into pockets, too).

    You can also use it as a phone stand during video chats.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.99 (available in eight styles).

    11. A bottle of organic soil enhancer that'll transform your plants into their very best selves. Because it doesn't contain any chemicals, you can safely use it on all manner of greenery (including herbs and veggies).

    Amazon / Via

    "I have a lot of plants, and many of them are demanding. Since I can admittedly be a bit of neglectful plant parent, I like to have a few secret weapons at my disposal that can bring my babies back to life when I've forgotten to water them for a few days (or weeks). This stuff does WONDERS. My monstera is absolutely obsessed with it and has since spawned several monstera babies thanks to its magic." โ€” Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.90+ (available in three sizes).

    12. An ultra-precise brow pencil that'll amplify your natural arches and give you the feathery brows of your dreams. Reviewers love that the waxy formula never looks fake or clumpy and stays put all day long.

    15. A pack of nearly-invisible pimple patches that'll help you zap that zit and get on with your day. Reviewers say they not only suck up gunk better than pricier patches and treatments, but that they flatten the area, so your concealer will go on smooth and silky.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "There isn't a lot of light in my room, so it's made a world of a difference. I use it in the mornings when it's still dark out to apply my makeup. And now that I'm working from home, I set it up behind my laptop, so I look less like a dungeon troll during my Zoom calls. I love how adjustable it is. I can extend the legs to place it on my desk, counter, or floor, and it has a phone mount and remote if I want to take selfies or full-body pictures, which look a hundred times better now. I can even change the brightness level and colour of the light. I don't know why I waited so long to buy this, because I've used it every day since I bought it." โ€”Kaysey Davis

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $44.15.

    18. A portable white noise machine that'll drown out unpleasant sounds, ease your tinnitus, and help you catch some zzz's. Reviewers say it has richer and deeper tones than similar gizmos on the market, and love that it puts babies to sleep in a snap.

    24. This natural hand soap that won't dry out your skin, no matter how many times you lather up. Even though it easily tackles all kinds of greasy and sticky messes, it won't take FOREVER to rinse off your hands (and it smells so freakin' good, too).

    This is, hands down, the best household soap I've ever used. The soft floral smell is particularly refreshing, and a huge improvement over all the artificial scents on the market.
