A Wire Grid Where You Can Hang Notes And Reminders
Hang this wire grid so that your coworkers can see it during your next video conference, and I can almost guarantee at least one person will ask where you got it from. And if they don’t? I bet they’re admiring it, albeit silently. Each order also comes with hooks included.
This Layered Necklace is Plated With 18-Karat Gold
Simple yet elegant, you can’t go wrong with this layered necklace. You can add other necklaces to create more layers or simply leave it as it is. And since it’s made from brass plated with 18-karat gold, there’s no need to worry about your skin turning green.

A Hair Towel For the Curly Girls
Microfiber hair towels are nothing new, but this one is special because it’s designed for our curly friends. Designed to absorb water more quickly for faster results, reviewers are thrilled with their results — from “since using this, my curls look like curls” to “it cuts drying time in half.” It has a convenient hanging hook for drying speediness, too.
This Special Light Bulb That Doesn’t Need Power To Work
Blackouts are scary, especially when you have no idea when the power might come back on. Sure, having emergency flashlights or lighting candles is essential, but these things don’t actually light entire rooms. This lightbulb, however, is completely rechargeable (when you have power) and doesn’t need a lamp or electrical outlet to actually work. However, you definitely can use them in your regular lamps, so if the power goes out, you’ll still have light for three-to-four hours.

Never Get Up To Charge Your Phone With A 10-Foot Lightning Cable

This Innovative Tool That Makes Slicing Tomatoes Way Simpler
Cutting onions, carrots, cucumbers, you name it, it’s pretty easy and straightforward. But the one thing I’m never very good at is slicing tomatoes, especially if I want thin rounds for a sandwich or burger. When I found this tool, I was intrigued. It looks like a pair of tongs, which you can use to grip the tomato, but it also has empty spaces that allow you to slide your knife through with ease. It also saves your non-working hand from any potential cuts.
This Eyeshadow Is the Bomb
Let’s relive the early 2000s in makeup form! Seriously, though, the Maybelline New York Eyestudio ColorTattoo Crayon in Crystal Grey is a staple in my makeup stash.

This water flosser is ultra-affordable and ultra-effective, making it an awesome gift for any of the adults on your list.
Put Your Thoughts Down On These Paper Notes
You’ve probably seen these notepads in other forms, like check-off packing lists for a trip or a “Don’t kill the kids” note for the babysitter. This one is all about love, where you can tell your partner what you love about them and why. Each pad comes with 60 sheets, perfect to hide away and break out 60 different times. I recommend sticking one on the bathroom mirror before he or she is out of bed.
This Facial Brush Deep Cleans
This face cleaning brush comes highly rated for deep cleaning with soft bristles, so it won’t tear up your face. Plus, it’s made from renewable bamboo and recycled materials, so it’s eco-friendly to boot.

See Your Way Through The Dark With These Night Vision Goggles

With more than 10,000 positive four- and five-star reviews, you really can’t go wrong with this laptop stand.

There’s even a cord organizer in the back with space for up to six cables.

It’s large enough to cover an entire dinner plate and can be cleaned easily…if you’re into that sort of thing.

Made from rust-resistant stainless steel, this scrubber gets all the crud off your cast iron cookware without damaging the seasoning you’ve built up.

And because they’re heat-resistant up to 230 degrees, you won’t have to be wary about using them with hot liquids.

I, like many others, hate doing dishes. My least favorite part is touching wet food. I think we can all agree it’s pretty nasty. So when I came across these gloves, I was relieved, to say the least. They can be used to scrub not only dirty dishes but your sinks, your car, your pet, your veggies, and more. Talk about a product that really does it all.
These Air Pods are the Perfect Accessory for Being On-the-Go

But since experiencing life without tangling myself in wires, I can absolutely recommend it as a lifestyle. The brilliant thing about Apple Air Pods is that they are known for their quality and durability.
