    43 Gifts For Loved Ones You Secretly Think Need To Get It Together

    Putting a lil' twist on the meaning of "Secret Santa."

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A full-body bath pillow complete with a bath sponge that'll 100% encourage a person to actually sit their tail down in the tub and relax for once. This life-saver is machine-washable. It also has 3D cushioning that dries quickly so mold won't mess up the vibes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product! I have whiplash and the pillow provides nice support for my neck while the deluxe model mat provides cushion for my aching back. Additionally, I usually slide down into the tub because I’m short. The pillow and mat provide support so that doesn’t happen. I have a semi-porous finish on my tub, so it’s very hard to find a pillow that will adhere to that surface. This one has many extra-large suction cups, holding the mat in place. For anyone having trouble with that issue, the trick is to put the mat in before adding the water and press hard on each suction cup. The suction cups are easy to remove. Just empty the tub and slide them... So, all of you bath lovers out there, add your Epsom salt or whatever and relax away!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95+ (available with or without a pillow).

    2. And an adjustable bamboo bathtub tray for propping up food, drinks, tablets, books, hopes, dreams and whatever else a person would need for a soak sesh. This'll further encourage your "person" to get their self-care routine together, STAT.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this! Nothing beats a long luxurious soak in the tub to relieve the stress of the day and this bath caddy makes it more enjoyable by giving me a safe place to put a glass of wine and my kindle. Bonus: My five-year-old grandson will now ask to take a bath when he visits me so I can serve him milk and cookies in the tub and he can read his book. Big thumbs up!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.64.

    3. Sam Edelman Penny 2 Boots for the person who'll never invest in a quality pair and is still wearing the same ones they've had for literal years even though they're hanging on by a thread. The holidays are the perfect excuse to just do for them what you know they probably won't do for themselves for a long while.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    You can even accompany these gorgeous boots in a gift box with Boot-Fix glue so that they'll be able to keep up their new ~and~ old boots FOREVA.

    Promising review: "These are beautiful and worth the money. I have big calves and it’s a struggle to find quality boots that aren’t made of some variation of plastic that will actually zip all the way up. These tick ALL the boxes! I bought the Whiskey Leather color and couldn’t be happier. They look much more expensive than they actually are. The soles have some rubber grip to them which is a nice bonus for winter weather. The boots also have some padding on the insoles which is also always missing in cheaper shoes. These are also nice because although they are wide-calf, they are not wide at foot or ankle. I have slim ankles and they bunch a little but not badly. My feet are narrow and long so these suit me well but be warned, if you have a wide foot I could see how these would be too narrow for you. I am a 9.5 right now and ordered a 10. I would definitely suggest going a half-size up when ordering. Overall, an awesome boot. I will most likely order them in black, as well!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $79.18+ (available in sizes 4 to 9 in regular and wide foot options and in 7 styles) and the Boot-Fix glue for $14.45.

    4. Helpful cable bites that can adorably decorate and protect the part of a charger cable that gets bent and damaged the most with regular use. Uh-huh. This could be a game-changer for the phone owner you know who's ~always~ buying a new charger.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are super cute and there are a ton of collections to choose from. They're multifunctional since they help you find your cable/cord easier and protect against fraying. The cable bites fit on both my smooth and threaded off-market phone cables and the name-brand cables such as iPhone and Amazonbasics. I wish I saw these ages ago!" —Featherlashes

    Get them from Amazon for $6.88+ (available in 10 different assortment packages).

    5. Poo-Pourri toilet spray for the person in your life who isn't exactly shy about going potty. This'll be a classy way to tell your loved one that they're assaulting your nose without actually having to say the words. Warning: ONLY give this to the people you're closest to who'll understand your joking-not-joking humor.

    Instagram / Poo-Pourri

    The scent featured here is called Wild Pear which is a blend of pear, cinnamon, and clove natural essential oils.

    Promising review: "I learned of this after seeing it in a friend’s bathroom and they swore it worked great. I bought some myself and was pleasantly surprised. A few spritzes before you go and you can stop questioning your diet. The earth will thank you for saving water on courtesy flushes and the person after you won’t curse your existence. Cheers!" —Dan T.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (also available in multiple scents).

    6. A sunrise alarm clock to help people who always seem to wake up on the wrong side of the bed (or, OOPS, the wrong side of their job's clock-in time). It has a sunrise stimulation wake-up setting that'll gradually increase its light similar to a real morning sunrise. It also works reversibly for creating a sunset to ease a person to bed.

    amazon.com

    Behold, a personal sun! This clock comes with eight color options, 20 brightness settings, seven nature sound options, FM radio, and a USB power cable.

    Promising review: "The light helped me tremendously with waking up and feeling energized. Waking up slowly to natural sounds like waves or birds chirping has made getting up easier. I love how the light begins to increase like the sunrise. It feels much less stressful waking up gradually versus the harsh shrill of my cell phone alarm. My favorite feature is the nightlight. It is a warm orange glow that I enjoy falling asleep to. It is very calming and warm. The setup was quick and easy enough that I could have done it with my eyes closed. The wake-up clock has a sleek modern look and fits right into my bedroom without looking out of place." —Justin Hildreth

    Get it from Amazon for $33.61.

    7. A cosmetics organizer for the one you know whose beauty routine always leaves their bathroom counter looking like the aftermath of a natural disaster. They'll finally be able to stick their stuff in any compartment quickly and easily.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "For a simple tray, it really does hold a lot of stuff. I can say that it is easy to clean as I had blush spill out in one of the spots. A little soap and water and it's clean. I was able to hold the majority of the makeup that I use in this. I was even able to put my makeup brushes and sponges in this thing. The openness of this tray allows me to put my makeup anywhere and not be limited to what I can and can't put in the cubbies. It's very sturdy and well-made and fits perfectly on my counter." —Ronnie Acosta

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors).

    8. Affresh coffeemaker tablets that'll remove odor-causing residue so coffee actually comes out safe to offer to people who visit. These trusty tablets are made of citric acid that'll remove hard water residue and mineral build-up to prevent your coffeemaker from being too clogged and pouring too slowly. Also, be honest, the tablets will also help you stop feeling so paranoid when you sip joe at other people's houses. I say you stick these things in every single stocking you give out this year.

    Amazon

    The process is as easy as dropping a tablet in the coffeemaker's water reservoir. Also, the tablet has a vinegar smell but will NOT contaminate your coffee with a vinegar taste (bleh!) per the many reviews. Reviewers also shared that these tablets worked on various styles (including electric kettles!) and brand products including Keurig, Ninja, and Bunn coffeemakers.

    Promising review: "This is great stuff and so easy to use! Less time is required as only one rinse is required instead of two or more. Coffee tastes so good after the pot it clean. No more bitter taste. Thank you, Affresh!" —Karen Witzman

    Get the coffeemaker Affresh tablets from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in a four-pack).

    9. An Amazon Firestick so your loved ones can STOP asking to borrow yours and failing to return it by the time you're ready to have your own binge-watch sessions. It features Netflix, Hulu, and a few other streaming apps and it's pretty easy to use — as they already know. Now, yours won't be doing all that house-hopping.

    amazon.com

    And just in case you'rrrre the person always borrowing someone else's Firestick, I've used the Firestick and as a completely non-techy person, I can say it's super easy to set up and use. That's all thanks to a remote controller with minimal buttons to press and the plug-in device which has minimal cords. I've decided to stop using my aunt's Firestick and finally get one of my own this year.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I can watch Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, and a really good selection of free apps. It's easy to use and Alexa works great when we are looking for a specific movie. It checks all my downloaded apps for whatever you ask. I'm considering canceling my $200 a month cable, and just keeping WiFi." —Groomer74

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (also available in bundle packages).

    10. A two-sided tea stand to organize packets for the person who's always offering tea but can't ever quickly put their hands on the exact kind they want to prepare. Since they're offering you tea all the time, the least you could do is help them keep all the packets together.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But, as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. A BESTOPE Blackhead Removal Kit for people who just cannot stop picking at their pimples with their hands. This'll prevent them from experiencing unnecessary redness, pain, and spreading bacteria. This kit comes with five different needles for different pimple sizes and a case to store them in when you aren't using them.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My skin is super super sensitive and usually when I pop pimples, they end up looking worse than before (especially with blackheads). This kit is so amazing!!! I just poke the pimple or blackhead with the sharp end then use the loop-shaped thing and the redness goes away in about half an hour instead of multiple days! It makes my blackheads disappear, turns bumps that usually aren't pop-able into small spots that go away within a day, and makes it way less painful to pop hormonal acne! I would seriously recommend this to anyone and especially to people with sensitive skin." —Sara Velasquez

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three color options).

    12. ORRRR, Avarelle acne patches for them to wear throughout the day since they may not want to be whipping out blackhead extracting tools while on the train, in the car, or at work. These patches will cover their pimples so they feel less motivated to pick at them AND of course, their main use is to clear up breakouts much faster than normal.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These have been life-changing for me. Unlike other brands, this has been the only one that works to protect and get rid of pimples. It's also absolutely the only brand that is thin and transparent enough to wear in public or under makeup... When I’ve used the Cosrx patch, it sticks out like a sore thumb and makes no difference in the size or appearance of my breakout after the recommended wear time. Since the Avarelle patches also contain soothing ingredients, they work to calm inflammation in breakouts that are under my skin as well. I no longer use ANY spot treatments. Aside from masks, this is the only product I use to treat my occasional breakouts. After sleeping with the Avarelle patches, my breakouts are usually either totally flat or gone. However, I continue to use them after to treat any leftover redness or after extractions to help the skin heal. Please give these a try. They’ve been life-changing for me. Since I’ve been using these, I no longer pick at my pimples, and my skin has improved DRASTICALLY. I’ve attached photos comparing the Avarelle patches to the other brand for reference." —Kris

    Get them from Amazon for $8.50 (40 patches in one pack).

    13. An essential oil stick that'll help relieve migraines for skeptics who refuse to take over-the-counter medicines because there's still no sense in sitting around in pain all day.

    amazon.com

    If you want more deets on this then read our review of the Migrastil headache relief stick!

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractors, etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home. I also bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    14. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes for people who are always buying new plants because they're always dying. All they'll need to do is pop these sticks into the soil of their hungry plants and watch them flourish. Ya' know, so they'll actually still be alive by the time you return to their house for another visit.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The spikes will feed each plant for up to two months.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering so I put a few of these spikes in the pot. There are directions on the back of package for quantity and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it! My African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also. I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster and they became more green and healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $5.19+ (available in single and bulk quantities).

    15. OR a self-watering pot and reservoir for plants that'll take even more work out of the growth process. The owner will only need to fill the white reservoir and set the black planter inside. The plant will do the rest and take in only the water it needs so it isn't over- or underwatered. Phew! It's also designed to keep insects from attacking the plants too.

    Nordstrom

    The plants can hold indoor Golden Devil's Ivy, African violets, Ocean Spider plants, orchids, and more.

    Promising review: "I ordered six of these pots originally for my African violet babies and they worked out very well! They're plain which is what I want, clean-looking, and easy to use. Other reviews said they are cheap. They are not. I would rather pay $16-ish for six pots than spend over $80 for pots at my local high-priced garden center (in colors I don't even like). These are also perfect for giving as gifts. I have so many babies now that all of my friends are getting one for the holidays! They also give you a free pair of gardening gloves with your order which is cool!" —Karen Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes).

    16. A microwave pasta cooker so all the noodle-involved meals will be done in literal minutes! It's supposed to make al dente pasta without sticking in 15 minutes or less. This is definitely for people (*slowly raises hand*) who somehow always seem to take forever to cook a meal. You never want to rush a person who's making food ~for you~, so here's an efficient tool to help out. Before you know it, the food will be all fixed and ready to eat. Who's ready for ~fasta~ pasta?!

    Amazon

    The top has holes to help you measure a serving size. One serving size takes about 12 to 13 minutes. This is also a great way to actually encourage yourself to make and bring lunch to work more often! The pasta cooker works so quickly that the noodles will quickly be ready, packed, and waiting in the fridge for you to grab and go in the morning.

    Promising review: "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures and this microwave pasta cooker helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week, if not more. First of all, I like spaghetti either with normal Prego-type sauce or sometimes just with butter and Romano cheese sprinkled on. But I'm lazy and impatient and don't like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps and a big clean up afterward. This cooker is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly-measured spaghetti. It's faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta. The pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time and the cleanup is a snap since there's no big pot, no colander, and no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta." —Smilin Sam

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    17. An internet address and password logbook for people who can't remember a password to save their life and are always needing to request a password reset before ya'll stream movies together. This lil' book will keep up with login info for social media, online banking, and school portals so your loved one can do things without a password delay.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.33.

    18. A champagne stopper to gift the friend whose bubbly is always losing its mojo before the function ends. This'll gift will come just in time for New Year's toasting!

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    This will seal up your champagne and keep it fresh in your fridge for days. It also has a pressure pump to make sure the stopper is completely sealed and leak-free.

    Promising review: "I’m guessing most people buy this great product for stopping sparkling wines, but it works just as well for any large-bottle sparkling drink, including apple ciders. And the ability to pump it once sealed means you don’t waste a single bubble getting the bottle back to its full pressure. Great product. Superb customer service." —DavidAtSwans

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97. Check out our review of the MiTBA Champagne Stopper for more deets on this cool gadget (#1)!

    19. Empowerment question cards for the one in your life who could use a little more personal time and positivity. There are 52 cards decorated in bright, inspiring colors with questions that'll inspire introspection, meditation, and self-empowerment. Reviewers used them for a variety of things including journaling, group activities at work, ice breakers at get-togethers, and even therapy sessions.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really like these cards. A lot of great thought-provoking, meditating, and journaling questions/ideas. The Empowering Questions cards are larger than a deck of playing cards. I love the size of these cards. I have actually gifted a few decks to friends that I thought would enjoy meditating or journaling about these questions." —Suz Burke

    Get them from Amazon for $13.40.

    20. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara to present to the person who's ALWAYS running late because of their falsies! Once they find out how GOOD this mascara makes their lashes look in a couple of swipes, they'll be saying "tootle-loo" to lash glue, whispies, and everything else.

    amazon.com

    It's also gluten- and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I saw common complaints like 'not waterproof so it smudges', and it 'didn't go on smooth' but I purchased L'Oreal's Voluminous Lash Primer to go underneath which is also only $5.99 on Amazon and together the combination is unreal. When I smile my eyelashes touch my eyebrows which has never happened before. It also keeps them nice and separated; they're not clumpy. I love that it even grabs the small lashes near in the inside corner. I had one mascara with fibers (that was like $30) that I loved before but throughout the day, the fibers would fall in my eyeballs and irritate the crap outta me. This DOES NOT do that. I've worked out and it doesn't smudge yet at the end of the day I do my normal facewash and it comes right off. This mascara lived up to the hype." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 and the lash primer for $5.99.

    21. An electric wine bottle opener for the person who's been drinking vino as long as you've known them yet still has trouble pulling those corks out. This gadget'll help 'em pop bottles in seconds with no real wrist work involved. It works on a built-in rechargeable battery and will open up to 30 wine bottles before needing another charge. Several reviewers who experience arthritis and other pain issues with their hands revealed that this thing comes in extra handy!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bottle opener is so convenient. It looks great, works awesome, and has a long battery life. Not much else to say. We love this bottle opener. We can also leave it off the charger for a while with no problem using it days later." —Nicole G.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available with free Amazon tech support).

    22. Fleece-lined faux leather leggings to encourage someone to come on over to the dark side — and by that I mean, going pantsless. It's a wonderful life, right?!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these faux leather leggings during a late night Amazon shopping spree. They don't look faux at all, are well-made, and I receive compliments on them every time I wear them. They are also extremely comfortable and fit like a second skin. They are super warm so I probably would not wear in warmer weather, but are perfect for the fall and winter. They shape and stay put! There is no rolling or slipping down with these babies. Put them on and they are going to stay where you put them. I love them!" —Kelly C. Albanese

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X and four styles).

    23. An encouraging water bottle for the person you know who never, ever, ever gets enough H20. This'll help them end their cactus lifestyle ASAP.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Anyone can take a gallon of water to work every day or refill smaller containers however this water bottle is PERFECT for me! I don't love drinking water and it's usually a struggle for me. Also, I'm a visual person that needs that constant reminder of why I'm drinking the water so the notes on the bottle are incredibly motivating and push me to continue. Since I posted a picture of it on social media, LOTS of my friends reached out to ask me for more info on it and actually purchased it themselves. I can rave about it all day. Aside from this, it's a super sturdy container, doesn't leak and the handle makes it easy to carry. Don't think twice! Just purchase it! :)" —Monica Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $13.96+ (available in 33 colors).

    24. A kitchen knife sharpener so you can stop judging your beloved for having the dullest knives you've ever seen. This'll help them get their knife game on point and save money on new knives.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Rather than replace my kitchen knife set, I thought I'd spent the $6 on this sharpener to see if I could save them. I was skeptical about how well it would work, but the reviews were pretty great. This little thing is fantastic! I was able to sharpen my knives really quickly and easily. I have only done my straight-edge knives and not my serrated ones because I didn't realize it could do both until I was finished. I'll do my serrated knives another time and see how well that goes, but I have high hopes due to how well it sharpened my chef's and santoku knives. My knives are roughly ten years old and have never been sharpened, so they were very, very dull. I sharpened them with the coarse blades and it worked beautifully. I am so happy with this sharpener and I was able to save a lot of money since I don't have to replace my knife set." —Breanne

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    25. A diamond cleaner for the person whose ring is way duller than it was when you first attended their wedding. You won't be able to tell which is sparklier — the ring or their smile.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is a miracle worker! I'm a little ashamed to say that getting my ring cleaned had become a low priority in the past eight or so years because kids, moving, etc., took the top spots. My ring was so dirty that I was starting to worry that if I took it somewhere to clean it, they'd be disgusted! I randomly saw this product mentioned by someone as a way to shine up their ring occasionally. I bought it because it was pretty cheap and why not take a chance? I soaked my ring in some warm water and dish soap for about half an hour, then took it out and started using the stick on it. I should've taken a picture of all of the gunk I got out of the crevices! I went over it thoroughly and then rinsed it off, OMG! My husband said he could see it sparkling from across the room and said maybe he needed to use it on his ring now! It's been about a month since I've last done it and it's only now starting to lose some of its sparkle. Very long-lasting!" —Browns

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    26. A belly button lint brush to gag gift to the friend who you had that awkward "Do you clean your belly button?" conversation with and they admitted that it's an, um, neglected spot they rarely think about. If you have kids or little humans in your life in any capacity, this could also be your way of making sure they never get outta cleaning their belly button when it's bath time. Put your foot DOWN and get those belly buttons cleaned UP!

    Etsy / Maggies Craft Sale

    One more gifting recommendation?! It'll also be a cute lil' accompaniment for a belly button ring gift if you know someone who already has a belly button ring but would appreciate a brand new one!

    Promising review: "My husband laughed SO hard at this gift. Great packaging and great product. Thanks!" —Sara and Justin Vandenbink

    Get it from Maggies Craft Sale on Etsy for $2 (available in four colors).

    27. A heated throw blanket for the loved one who always complains about how cold it is in your house. Now, every time they're scheduled for a visit, you can remind them to bring the warmth with them. This gift will help them help you help them. Cool?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's warm, soft, and has a timer. I normally leave it on low heat for two hours after I get in the bed and it will stay warm throughout the night. This is my second blanket! I bought this one for my family's Thanksgiving present and I'm sure they will love it!" —Yuguang

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    28. A glass flower vase to add a simple but elegant touch to the home you think could use just a lil' more help to blossom into the gorgeous abode you know it can be. The vase has a straightforward design with clear glass so it'll likely suit the home of any person you give it to.

    Amazon

    You'll prob get bonus points if you accompany this vase with their favorite flowers (real or faux!).

    Promising review: "I was looking for a small glass vase that would not go dull-looking over time. I have a large vase of a similar design as this that stays looking like new for years. This one is just the right size for a few stems of flowers and looks prettier than in the photo." —Amazon_user_HI

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available as a single or in a pack of 3).

    Get the four-piece set on Amazon for $29.99.

    30. And storage bin decals to take the fridge revamp up yet another level.

    31. A handheld milk frother that'll give your loved one perfect froth for all of their favorite coffee drinks right in the warm comforts of their home. Ya' know, so they can stop being bosom buddies with Starbucks so dang much!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes, like they do at Starbucks, at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milk (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths non-dairy milks. I can't tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. It makes a beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there's still foam even in the last sip. Also, you can use this for the fancy cold foam to have with iced coffee drinks. I love this device so much! I have recommended it to literally everyone I know and plan on purchasing another frother in the near future just so I can keep one at the office to make sure I never have to make coffee without it.

    Promising review: "This is a very neat storage rack! I have bought two already and plan to buy more! One is used above my stove for my spice rack! My husband and I are both short around 5’5" so this is very convenient for us as we can pull it out and down to look at spices. The other one we used to put medicine in. We are putting these in all the top shelves as it’s so much easier to pull it out and down to find what we are looking for. Plus it organizes well!" —Caressa

    Promising review: "Being in grappling sports, I run through a ton of hair ties. It had me thinking about the environmental effects of numerous non-degradable hair ties and their packaging.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my wife as she is a french fry lover to the MAX. I gave it to her thinking it was a 'nice' or 'OK' novelty item for the truck.

Always have been but it is refreshing to watch such happiness." —AZPerk3

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It sits on his nightstand and he uses it regularly. He doesn't lose his glasses as much. I've also noticed that he doesn't fall asleep with them on his face or somewhere in bed since he started using this. I like it because it saves me the aggravation of listening to my husband look for his glasses. It's cute yet functional." —Lady Tauber
