This Playing Card Holder Is Simple Yet Genius
Keeping our playing cards organized is an issue we really don’t think about…until we see a solution, that is.

With These Computer Glasses You Can Go Nuts On Your Computer Without Straining Your Eyes

The Tub Shroom Will Keep You From Sabotaging Your Own Bathtub Drain

Instead, just use this handy little gadget, and it’ll neatly catch all the hair and dirt that would normally stick right in your shower drain.
This White Noise Machine Will Give You The Amazing Night’s Sleep You Need
I’m one of those people who needs just the right amount of noise to fall asleep. It can’t be absolutely quiet, but if the TV is on or something like that? Also not good.

I’m definitely picking one of these up for my room.
This LED Backlight Will Make Your TV the Go-To For Movie Nights
First of all, a multi-colored backlight around my TV just sounds really cool.

Not only can you pick a fun color for your backlight, but it’ll also make sharper images and help your eyes adjust to the setting!

There’s nothing like a nice glass of chilled wine after a long day. And even if there’s no room for wine bottles in your fridge (or you just forgot), that’s no reason to miss out. Just pop these into the freezer and pull them out when you’re ready for that drink. There’s even a grip around it so you don’t freeze your mitts off!

Treat Yourself to the Most Self-Indulgent Bath With This Wineglass Cup Holder
There’s a reason we always associate bubble baths and wine with luxury; they’re both just nice. And together, they’re even better.

These Reusable Filter Cups Make Owning a Keurig So Much Better

And it hardens into flexible silicone rubber, so you’ll never crack the glue by bending it too far!
Be Your Own Perfect Masseuse With This Deep Tissue Massager
There’s no denying that massages can really help with muscle pain. But they have drawbacks too: they can be expensive, they make another place you’ve got to drive to during your already busy day, and for some of us, they can feel a little invasive. For all you who don’t mind undressing and being massaged by another person, more power to ya! It’s not for everyone, though.
That’s why a massager like this one is so great. You can get all those pains and tricky spots yourself, without having to pay a fee or go anywhere!
Never Get Stuck Trying to Open a Bottle Again With This Automatic Bottle Opener
Wrestling with bottle caps can be anything from a little sore on your fingers, to just plain demoralizing if you have to give up and ask someone else for help.

This Straightening Brush Will Tame Your Hair Without Burning It
A hair straightener is definitely one of my must-haves. The only issue is that you’ve got to be careful; make it too hot or linger too long and your hair gets more damaged than straightened.

The entirety of the awesome brush is designed to smooth your hair in the healthiest possible way.

Don’t Let Keyboard Dust Drive You Nuts With This Special Cleaning Gel
Seriously, accumulated keyboard filth is the worst. It’s so hard to reach that all you can really do is try to get it and end up just spreading it around instead. So throwing a glob of neon yellow jelly onto your keyboard might seem weird, but it’s actually the perfect thing. This cleaning gel won’t be sticky on your hand and it’s got a nice fresh lemon scent, so all you’ve got to do is press it into the surface you’re cleaning and then pull it away!

No More Obnoxious Tangles With This Earphone Wrap
