    These products basically deserve a Nobel Prize.

    2. This Revlon hair dryer and volumizer brush that'll give you the blowout you've been dreaming about, even if you're in an extremely humid environment.

    15. This award-winning watch that's specially designed for the visually impaired, but is also a super sleek accessory that anyone would love to wear.
