With your current set up, I'd go with the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens to complete the wide end of your glass spectrum. For product photography, you'll want to throw some bokeh occasionally, so something like the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake could fill that roll and still be easy on your pocket. (There are a number of possibilities in this range. Don't get suckered into a bunch of primes. One, special-purpose, is usually enough).

Using these zooms, you'll want to use Digital Lens Correction, during your RAW conversion, to correct for the inevitable geometric distortions of these inexpensive zooms. Canon's Digital Photo Professional has DLO, as does Lightroom and DxO, plus some others. It's key to getting really sharp images. I use it with my expensive L-series lenses and can see the improvement easily. In general, the less expensive your lens, the more that you need DLO.

Let us know what you do.
