A Portable Device To Make Bug Bites Stop Itching Right Away
In the summer, nothing is worse than mosquito bites. They itch like crazy, and they make your body light up with all the red bumps on your legs. The thing that makes bug bites itch so much is the irritants left under the skin after they bite you.
This pocket-sized suction removes the irritants that cause swelling and itching and helps the bug bite go away faster. It works for all kinds of bites and stings like mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, and more. It can also suck out splinters too.
Smart Plugs Make Your Life Easier
These smart plugs are something we literally never thought we would need. The small cubes plug into any outlet, and you can use them to set your lights and appliances on specific schedules. Everything is controlled from one convenient app that connects to the plugs.
If you have a Google Assistant or Alexa, you can also control the plugs that way. This would save us so much money on our electric bill because nothing would be on or charging when it doesn't need to be.
A UV Sanitizer For Your Phone
This past year, we have become more and more concerned with germs and keeping our hands and devices sanitized. While wiping your phone with an alcohol wipe is an option, it is not great for the environment. That's why we couldn't resist this UV sanitizer.
It kills 99.9 percent of germs with UV light, so you won't have to worry about all the gross microbes collecting on your phone. It can also charge your phone while it sanitizes. You can also use it for all small things like your keys, headphones, and sunglasses, so everything is sanitized.
An Inflatable Travel Pillow That Is Actually Comfortable
While flying is exciting because it usually means that you are going on vacation, it isn't always the most comfortable mode of transportation. However, neck pillows definitely make the flight much easier, but it is hard to find one that folds up and also keeps your neck comfortable.
This inflatable quality travel pillow supports your head and neck without drooping. It is perfect because it can deflate and fold up without taking up too much space in your bag. It even has a pocket for your phone and a hood to keep your head warm on the cold plane.
Never Lose Your Household Items Again
If you are anything like us, you are constantly losing things around your house; from hairbrushes to TV remotes. It's especially frustrating when you are running late and can't seem to find the one thing you need.
This item locator is the best thing we have found for our absent-minded selves. The color-coded remote comes with six receivers that have corresponding colors to each button. You just have to stick the receiver on, and when you push the button, it makes a loud sound so you won't misplace your things again.
An Egg-Separator For Mess-Free Food Prep
If you love to cook and bake you probably know how messy it can be to separate eggs. There is nothing worse than having a runny mess of egg yolks and whites, but this little tool has saved us so much time in the kitchen.
Instead of fussing over breakfast and trying to get every last bit of egg white to finally fall off, get yourself one of these egg separators. It saves so much time because all you have to do is crack the egg over the separator, and it does the rest of the work for you.
The Best Pet Hair Catcher
If you have pets at home, you probably struggle to clean up all the hair they shed. While it might not bother you so much, it does start to build up over time, and many vacuums don't collect all the hair. We just found the ultimate solution to get rid of the pet hair, thanks to TikTok.
The roller collects all the hair inside the chamber, and it's straightforward to use. Plus, you can wash it out after every use, so you know the pet hair isn't sticking around. It doesn't even need batteries, which makes it even more amazing.
Mess-Free Gel To Clean Every Crevice
Two of the most annoying things to clean are the air vents in your car and any keyboards. The super small spaces are so hard to get into with any wipe or cleaning device, and dirt build-up is not good for any device.
This slime-like gel is the best thing we have found for cleaning everything that has small cracks and crevices. The gel can also be used multiple times because you can wash the dirt out of it. Be prepared to obsessively clean your devices because it is so addictive.
A Notebook You Never Have To Throw Away
One of the most wasteful things about school is the notebooks. We remember getting new notebooks each school year, and sometimes having to buy multiple because we ran out of space. While we can't move everything online, there is a way to be more eco-conscious.
This notebook has 80-pages that can be re-used by simply microwaving it. But you don't have to lose all your notes every time you need a new piece of paper. You can send your notes to Google Drive, Dropbox, Slack, and any other cloud service. It is a notebook you will never have to throw away.

These small motion sensor lights can light up the hall or whatever room you need them, and they won't run up your electric bill. They turn off after 60 seconds of no movement, and you can even adjust the brightness.
This Gadget Saves So Much Time Cutting Garlic
Garlic is one of the best additions to any dish, but it is probably the most annoying thing to chop. Not only does it make your hands smell, but the cloves are so small it is almost impossible to get them finely minced unless you are a professional chef.
If you love garlic as much as we do, you need one of these multi-tasking garlic mincers and chopper. You just put the garlic clove in and squeeze. It will seriously save you so much time, and your hands won't smell for the rest of the week.

A Travel Razor Case That Keeps Your Razor Dry

Keeping your razor dry is important, and this carrying case has holes to drain the excess water. It is also lightweight and flexible so that it can fit in any bag easily.
A Phone Mount That Fits In The Cup Holder
Most people today have some kind of car mount for their phones because it is the best place to safely keep your phone while driving. However, it is hard to find one that works in your car because they aren't universal. But we found one that is perfect for pretty much any vehicle.
This phone mount fits right into your cup holder, and it's adjustable. It is so much better than the regular car mount because it stays in place and doesn't tip over under the weight of your phone. It also keeps your windshield clear from obstructions.

The Multitasking Power Strip That Doesn't Take Up Room
When you have limited outlets and multiple devices it can be frustrating to use traditional power strips that take up space or can't fit all your plugs. Well, someone was smart enough to take a typical power strip and put it in a cube shape to charge multiple devices without taking up space.
This one has three USB ports and four outlets with a long extension cord. We are surprised we didn't think of this first because you won't block other outlets, and you can stick it to any surface to make plugs more accessible.
A Beard Brush For Every Kind Of Beard

An Easy To Use Back Scrubber
While it can be challenging to reach your back, most people neglect to wash it because of this issue. While people don't care much about washing their backs, the dead skin build-up can cause acne, which no one wants, especially during the summer.
This simple back exfoliator cleans away dry, rough skin with its dual-sided silicone scrubbers. One side has small bristles, while the other side has nubs for massaging. The silicone is also anti-bacterial, so you can just rinse it off and hang it up to dry when you are done using it.

This Stand Frees Up Desk Space
Working from home has become even more common over the past year. We had to scramble to create a decent workspace in our homes, but it took a while to get a setup that actually worked. While some of us are back in our offices, others are still at home, and they could probably use this.
This monitor stand clears up space on your desk while still allowing you to have a place for your monitor or laptop. It can be adjusted so that your monitor is still at a comfortable height while giving you room to put books and other items below it.

A Water Bottle That Will Make You Drink More Water
If you are like us, you probably also forget to drink water sometimes. Yes, we know hydration is essential, but life happens, and we forget to do things. While it is one of the easiest things to do, we could use some reminders to stay hydrated.
While a regular water bottle is a simple solution to this problem, there is a way to improve that. This colorful water bottle has little motivational markers to remind you to drink up each hour. It has a silicone straw and a wide enough mouth to add ice cubes. It also comes in other colors if this is not your style.
Never Lose Your Sunglasses In The Car Again
