    1. A SpongeBob AirPod case that'll make a great super casual (and humourous) gift. And it'll keep their headphones safe from scuffs and scratches!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It might also remind them of their childhood (you should probably get to know them a bit better)!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.88+ (available in 15 styles).

    2. Some Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning blend that'll add a sprinkle of flavour to their favourite foods — no bagel necessary! We might not have Trader Joe’s in Canada, but we do have this.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    They'll end up using it on everything, from pizzas to sandwiches to roast chicken to buttered popcorn! Just be mindful to check the ingredients for any allergens, as it does contain sesame seeds, garlic, and other things. And then ask them if they have any allergies.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $24.91.

    3. A David's Tea relaxation kit that's sure to soothe and please any discerning tea lover. The kit comes with three decaffeinated and de-stressing tea blends that taste de-licious (😏) and reduce stress almost instantly. And who doesn't love that?

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    You might not know what their favourite tea is, but with three options to choose from, the odds are in your favour. And with a mug, drawstring filters, plus a sleeping mask, this gift is a surefire hit.

    @rosebudperfumecompany / Via instagram.com

    Reviewers rave about how deeply moisturizing it is. BuzzFeed writer Alice Prendergast says, "It's a life-saver in the winter time, and because it has a light, rosy hue (not a white, chalky cast), it won't make you look like you're dying of the bubonic plague."

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.50.

    5. This folding sandalwood comb they'll be able to use on their hair or beard. The oils of the wood are naturally anti-static, and the fine teeth work on all hair types and lengths.

    8. This gin-making kit that'll let the would-be brewmaster's imagination run wild. Sure, the kit includes recipes for three different styles of gin, but it also has 12 different botanicals that are perfect for experimenting with. It also makes a great activity for the two of you!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    They'll need to buy the base alcohol (like vodka) separately, or you can get them a bottle so they can get started right away!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $89.

    9. This multipurpose lotion that's specially formulated to prevent chafing, shrivelling, dryness, and sagging (yes, I'm talking about testicles). Their bits go through a lot during the day, so it might be time to give them some TLC.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, @tamethebeast / Via instagram.com

    The fresh, natural scent is courtesy of rosemary, calendula, chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender, and mango. The addition of shea and cocoa butters, jojoba oil, and vitamin E will keep their junk smooth and moisturized, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $23.93.

    12. A plush dog toy because everyone knows the quickest way to someone's heart is through their pet. The ultrasonic squeaker is audible only to their pupper, so their fur baby can play while you two get to know each other better.

If you suspect that they're not really the floral smell type, grab an Almond and Honey set instead.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.
