2.A fruit bouquet that's gonna be a hit with picky eaters who know produce must be ~beary~ cute if it is to be consumed.
3.Or a box of Verb energy bars that'll delight people who need a pick-me-up stronger than chocolate. These have as much caffeine as an espresso – without the post-coffee slump and/or jitters.
4.A clarifying serum with willow bark extract, niacinamide, and a zinc blend that's sure to please people who have decided to sneak a serum into their skincare routine. This is here to help with minimizing inflammation, acne, and clogged pores on stressed-out skin.
5.An anti-fog spray for responsible folks who have been wearing face masks despite their glasses constantly fogging up – you deserve to see the light!

9.A set of door strips for adding some extra insulation into your room and thus, help you save on electric. But wait! There's more! These are also sound-proof and great for turning your tiny home office into a sanctuary free from the Trolls 2 soundtrack your kids are belting in the living room.
10.An adjustable 16-inch pan and lid rack with scratch-proof steel dividers – this'll adjust to your...unique...collection of pots and pans as easily as you adjust every recipe to be cooked in muffin tins.
11.An all-in-one comforter you can literally use all year long. If you, like me, have discovered the joys of making a minimalist bed, you know there's nothing better than a comforter that does it all. Plus this thing is luxurious. Like, unreasonably luxurious.
12.A pack of five elastic scrunchies for anyone who is ready to break up with breakage caused by tight elastics. These are also great for preventing tension headaches if you like having your hair up when you sleep!
13.A pack of Ruth Asawa or Halloween stamps so you can send something special to a loved one while possibly helping save the USPS. A job we *really* didn't know needed to be done.

15.A cabinet turntable sure to make your pantry more accessible and organized simply by spinning it...right round like a record, baby!

19.A tie hanger that can hold up to 20 ties, keeping your favorite accessories neat and...ahem...tie-dy all the time.

22.A pack of corner guards sure to make sharp surfaces safe while still letting your style stay sharp.
23.A two-roll toilet paper holder you can attach to the side of your toilet tank. Having a small bathroom is ~crappy~ but clever solutions like this can help make it livable, maybe even likable!
24.A dehydrator that'll help you turn leftover groceries into dehydrated treats that won't go bad after a week. We're talkin' dried fruit, chips, even jerky. Yes please.
25.A cheese keeper to keep your favorite cheeses, both hard and soft, alive longer by allowing them to breathe. In the words of her highness, Veruca Salt, "Give it to me NOW!"

32.And finally, an Instant Pot magnetic cheat sheet you can stick right on your machine, giving you a helpful source that's far more reliable than asking Alexa for recipe directions every step of the way.
