This Soap Holder Is Exfoliating

Whether your friends like a classic look or something more wild, they can find it with this eyeliner.

This optical illusion spinner looks beautiful on your desktop

The design of this caddy won't take up a ton of room, either. A good housewarming gift for new homeowner friends.
