The world is yours with these planet key chains!
You can literally hold the world in the palm of your hand…and crush it if you want to. It’ll be a relief to finally let your keychain carry the weight of the world instead of your shoulders for once. If you’re looking for more of an out of this world aesthetic, this key chain also comes as different planets like Jupiter, Mars, and … um … Uranus.
Yeah…books are still around. And apparently, bookmarks are as well.
Nerds will love this quirky bookmark for their latest read. Mark your place with these squished animal bookmarks. It’s like animal abuse…but it's not. The bookmark comes in a variety of squished animals like a Shiba Inu, Donkey, and Gecko.
Regardless of which animal you choose, these bookmarks can act as conversation starters that can distract you from how boring the book is.
What do you get the person who has everything? The answer is “Nothing”. We found it for you on AliExpress, and apparently, nothing comes in different shapes.
You can choose to be a dick and waste resources like gas, paper, plastic, and employee time by purchasing “Nothing” encased in a transparent shell for 2 dollars. Then when that special someone asks what you got them for a gift, you can say, “nothing.” Not only do you get to revel in the satisfaction of seeing their disappointment, but you get to see them get excited when they realize you did get them a present.
But wait, there’s more! You also get to experience their reaction when they realize that you did in fact, get them nothing. So, this is more of a purchase for yourself, if anything.
Adult purchases – how fun!
Though as far as being a real adult goes, purchasing these curtain holders is not a bad idea. They’re cute and practical. These curtain holders are a great way to mask that your home really is not put together, but it kind of is.
Purchase these curtain holders in a variety of colors to match your aesthetic (or the adult you’re pretending to be‘s aestheic).

When you’re making that coin, you’re gonna need a place to put it. As in, literal coins because we both know you’re a broke bitch who is still penny-pinching. The good thing is, you can be a cute broke bitch, putting your pennies into this coin purse.
Choose from black, green, grey, or red for the perfect place to squirrel away change (or small miscellaneous items, earphones for example) without shame.

You can’t go wrong with double stick tape, you just can’t. Imagine the possibilities!
This tape could fix more than duct tape. Though just a fair warning, it won’t fix your heartbreak from your significant other giving you ‘nothing’ (or just how broken your life is).
But it could probably hang up those super cute umbrella hangers from earlier. You should purchase this tape just in case, because… adult things. Cheap gadgets don't get any more useful than this.
Price: $0.74 + shipping
