    Drive a compact, SUV, or pickup truck? No problem, because this dipper has a universal mount that moves and locks into 16 positions to accommodate different car vent sizes.

    Promising review: "I got these for my mom as a stocking stuffer for Christmas and OMG, she absolutely loves them! I kind of got them as a gag since we are always teasing her about trying to hold the ketchup and dip her fries or nuggets while she's driving, but this little plastic holder made her SO happy, lol. 😊 They work great for pretty much most sauce cups and it has a handy little attachment so that if the sauce comes in packets, you can pour it in there and still attach it to the air vent. My mom tells everyone who gets in her car about them and I will definitely purchase as a gift for more people!" —Summer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.90+ (available in four colors and in packs of 4, 6, and 10.)

    33. An auto toothpaste dispenser that'll take your bathroom to the future and cut your brushing time. Instead of endlessly squeezing a tube, you can place your brush underneath and instantly get toothpaste.

    34. And a Mini Makeup Eraser because it wipes away lipstick, foundation, and mascara with JUST WATER (I repeat, JUST WATER!) — exactly like the full-size version. You'll be happy you didn't have to use a bunch of cotton pads, micellar water, or foamy cleansers to take a day's worth of makeup off.
