This photo mobile is the perfect solution.
This Handy Grabber That Has A Million Uses
via: AmazonI, myself, am not a short person. In fact, my whole family is fairly tall. But my sister-in-law happens to be teenie, and at barely 5 feet tall, has a tough time reaching most things in her house. I knew this grabber would be the perfect gift for her. She tells me how much she loves it every time I see her, and for only $9.99, you can be thoughtful and frugal.
This White Board That You Need In Your Kitchen

This Makeup Remover Sponge That Cleans Your Brushes
via: AmazonI like to think of myself as a self-taught makeup expert.

When I'm attempting a complicated eye look, it can be annoying to have to keep switching back and forth between multiple brushes in order to keep all the colors from blending together. This Color Removal Sponge allows you to easily switch between colors without dirtying all of your brushes.

For just under $10 bucks, you'll never have to utter the phrase "What happened to all our pens and pencils?" while exasperated ever again.
This Sweet Planter That Brightens Up Your Space

But your lips will be beautifully soft, smooth, and free from dead skin.
This Thin Wallet That Keeps Your Purse Lighter

This cardholder is made from genuine leather and forces your purse to lighten up.
This Keyboard Cover That Keeps Your Keys Clean
via: AmazonI have a rather embarrassing confession to make: I eat in front of my laptop while I'm working.

This keyboard cover protects my keys, adds fun color, and allows me to keep eating fistfuls of popcorn all day long.
This Hair Treatment That Transforms Your Locks
via: AmazonI'm pretty sure my hairdresser hates me. I'm always using direct heat on my hair without putting in any type of protectant (even though he constantly tells me not to), and as a result, my hair has become horrendously dry and split on the ends. This leave-in conditioner is the only thing that restores my hair to his former luster. I use it once per week to maintain moisture.
