    1. A sleep mask with built-in Bluetooth headphones that'll also block out annoying sounds (like your neighbour's X-Files marathon). It's profiled to fit around your eyeballs and has a control panel in the centre so you won't accidentally change your tunes mid-snooze.

    2. A battery-operated Philips Sonicare toothbrush that'll scrub your chompers better than your old one ever could. It costs a fraction of its expensive electric cousins and even comes with a cute carrying case for dental care on the go.

    3. A 3-in-1 nightlight that you can control without ever getting out of bed. It has a built-in sound machine to help you fall asleep, plus a time-to-rise function to help you stay on schedule.

    7. An instant-read meat thermometer that'll let you know when the roast is done. Some of reviewers' fave features include the backlit screen (*chef's kiss* for nighttime barbecuing), pop-out probe, and magnetic backing.

    12. A mini calculator that'll help you solve all those tough equations. It's small enough to fit in even the most overstuffed pencil case (or even your pocket, if you're in a bind).

    13. A 2-in-1 planter that'll blast your fave tunes with just the touch of a leaf (no, I'm not joking). It even has colour-changing LED lights that'll get the party started — all while giving your greenery a dope new home.

    14. A Philips wake-up light that'll gently rouse you from your slumber come Monday morning. Instead of a blaring alarm sound, it actually simulates the colours of a sunrise, tapping into the body's natural circadian rhythm and waking you up more peacefully.

    17. A heart-shaped computer mouse that'll add a little *amour* to your desk setup. It's small enough to tuck in your bag so you can comfortably bring this to your next class (and since it's USB-powered, it won't die halfway through).

    18. A pair of bug-zapping rackets you can use to obliterate pests at your next outdoor hang. It has a teeny light on the handle to lure mosquitos, flies, and other flying irritants to their doom.

    19. An LED light strip that's designed to reduce eye strain and fatigue. It's lined with foam tape that'll stick right onto the back of your TV, and it'll help to increase colour contrast so you can marathon your fave movies in cinema-style comfort.

    20. This dog-walking cap with built-in LED lights that'll be an absolute blessing on those late-night (or early morning) dog walks. The lights are mounted on the brim so you won't accidentally step in your pupper's poops.

    21. A petite security camera so you can peep in on your pooch when you're out running errands. Recording starts the second it detects movement and it's equipped with excellent night vision so you'll never miss a thing.

    22. A flameless lighter so you can spark up in all kinds of weather. There's no butane to refill and it has an auto-close system that'll keep it from accidentally starting a fire in your pocket.

    23. A handheld percussive massager that'll ~untangle~ your knots and help your body recover faster after exercise. It comes with five different heads, so you'll always get the kind of treatment you need.

    24. A self-stabilizing tripod if your directorial technique can best be described as "shaky." It has a powerful magnetic grip that'll lock your phone in place so you can focus on making art (instead of constantly adjusting your device).

    26. A neat mug warmer that'll keep your coffee toasty 'til the last sip. Reviewers say it's helped their morning java stay hot throughout their entire workday so you can skip the mid-afternoon microwave.

    27. A charging hub that'll juice up to five devices at once so you and your family won't have to fight for plug supremacy. It also has two USB ports and a lil' shelf, allowing you to keep your fave (let's be real, it's your phone) within eyesight.

    30. A 3-in-1 can opener that'll help you ditch some of the drawer clutter. Reviewers say it doesn't tip and love that the cut edges are smooth (rather than jagged) so you won't accidentally slice your fingers open.

    31. And lastly, a stylish power bar that'll blend into your desktop decor. But don't be fooled by its good looks — it can charge nine devices simultaneously, is surge protected, and has a flat plug so it'll fit neatly into tight spaces.
