    One of the colors is glow-in-the-dark!

    Promising review: "I have had this for five months. I like the glow-in-the-dark feature because I use my Airpods in bed a lot and it's easier to find them when I roll over. It does pick up lint easy but it is also easy to clean off. After about four months the clip broke off but I use the ring on my keychain, so it's fine." —crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    8. A pack of elastic laces so you never have to do that awkward move where you try to tie your shoe in the middle of the sidewalk.


    Promising review: "My son is a teenager with autism, and he has struggled his entire life with shoelaces. I decided to give these a try after seeing similar brands advertised on Facebook. They were a HUGE hit! He wears adult shoes now, and they were very easy to install in his Nike Air sneakers. Now that he wears men's shoes, we were really struggling to find a lace-free athletic shoe. This completely solved our problem and gave my son so much confidence! Not to mention his growing feet really needed the proper support from better shoes, and these gave us that gift. Innovative and life-changing sound like spin words, but for us they are legitimate truths." —rotabega

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! I have had carpal tunnel surgeries and this is a great way to exercise and strengthen my hands and wrists. I also have some ADD and it helps there too. I love the colors. I squeeze and stretch it while watching TV too. It was hard to open at first because it had shifted and was stuck to bottom of the lid. Don't be discouraged by its first appearance. You need to work some to get it out the first time: Get you finger down to the metal of the bottom and then pull up from under the putty and it will pop right out!" —Dusterlea

    Promising review: "For more than a decade I have been using some sort of fidget item or spinner ring to help with my severe anxiety. I have had dozens of spinner rings over this years and I must say this Rose Gold Pauro ring is one of the best. The spinner spins wonderfully and does not stick at all like many spinner rings. It is also absolutely gorgeous and fits perfectly! I also rarely take my ring off for hand washing, and the water does not affect the ring at all. I would definitely recommend this ring!" —Emily
