    9. A set of pastel highlighters to call your attention to important stuff during study sessions or organize a bullet journal without killing your eyes.

    13. A paddle detangling brush that can do major things for unruly hair (and maybe save a few bucks of the detangling spray you normally use to douse your hair).

    14. A cotton tote in a cute pattern you can easily identify — like bananas, pineapples, or floral — to keep in your car or at your desk when today's bag just won't cut it for your storage needs.

    15. A pair of silicone baking mats that'll be a total game-changer if you haven't been lured into the siren call of them yet.

    20. A coffee scoop/bag clip so you'll never have to track down a spoon to fill 'er up with caffeine while you're zombie yawning.

    22. An SPF 30 lip balm in a yummy acai flavor so sun protection will be far more appetizing.

    26. A sheet of door-dampening bumpers that'll be silent and go unnoticed, much like your deep dive for snacks when the baby's asleep.

    27. A 3-in-1 avocado tool for dismantling the green fruit faster for treats like toast, guac, and more!

    29. A box of chocolate anuses that'll come in handy you need a prank gift in a pinch. (Please let it be a prank gift.)

Sigh.

    35. A *legit* oven cleaner ready to do the tough scrubbing for you.

    36. A dog water dispenser to throw in your bag for all sorts of adventures with your BFF.
