8. …and yes, that is an animatronic Chewbacca. It moves, it talks, it… furs(?), and it responds in the Wookie language when it’s spoken to too (aww). It also smiles in a way that my flatmate assures me is very cute if you like the franchise.
9. I lost my old headphones in a different country, so I panic-ordered these Sony ones that somehow sound better than options I’ve paid three times as much for.
10. I haven’t found a primer as good as e.l.f.’s illuminating option before – in fact, it’s so great, I’ve started using it in place of foundation.
11. Nab yourself five stunning succulents and five cute cacti with this handy set.
14. Relieve some tension with this massager ball. It’s small enough to carry around in your handbag!

43. This wholesome kit contains everything you’ll need to propagate avocado seeds, proving there IS such a thing as a free lunch.
47. Celebrate your birthday with this Odlum’s mix that 1) requires no fiddly proving and 2) makes among the best soda bread I, an Irish person, have tried.
51. Remember those swipe-to-erase drawing boards with the metal pen you had as a kid? Well, this Buddha board is sort of like a prettier, more adult version of that. Fill it with water before drawing, painting, or writing with the bamboo brush included: the resulting lines will have a gorgeous inky look, and will evaporate away alongside the water.

It contains month-by-month guides to the best seasonal recipes, flowers, tide tables, moon phases, and gardening tips, and the touching intros for each month are almost poetic.
74. I can’t sell you on this incredible book any other way than by showing you its title: it’s called Games on Thrones: 100 Things To Do On The Loo.
75. I reckon it’s about time you cracked open some Moet champagne, don’t you?
