I'm an office supply junkie, and I love a smooth pen, and these pens are silky, silky smooth. (Please forgive my terrible handwriting in the GIF above.) I'm so glad I bought a whole box of them because these are the only pens I'm using from now on." —Kat Angus

    It's a lot more powerful than I thought it would be. I recently knocked over a plant and it picked up every last speck of dirt on my table and floor. It even has a brush on the bottom that'll pick up loose hair, too. I usually keep it on my desk because it looks super cute there and it helps me clean up small messes, as soon as they happen.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I love my iPhone but I hate that I have to pick it up + point it at my face to unlock it. When the group texts come raining in during the work day, I’d like to be able to glance at them without taking the time to pick up, scroll through, and then putting it back down — my FOMO-y self needs to be sure the texts can wait until my next break for a reply! I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later." — Maitland Quitmeyer
