10 Things you can get for $10 or less from AliExpress
Best AliExpress Deals
We begin our list with these amazing sticky pads, that can help you hold pretty much anything that weighs up to 1 kilogram, which is 2.2 lbs. These magic sticky things come in a square or round shape, and are said to stick to any surface. They can hold your phone, keys, drinks, and self-esteem.

Door light sensor
So you stayed out too little too late, and your phone died so you can’t use it to illuminate the keyhole to avoid missing it and waking up the people you live with? Is this scenario too specific or too real? This motion-sensitive light will help you avoid unpleasant situations.
It has a light sensor, so it won’t work when it is bright outside, so when you are day-drinking, you are on your own, buddy.

Sloth tea diffuser
If your life is missing magic, how about you add this sloth tea infuser to your repertoire? It is probably guaranteed – just not by me – to lighten up your morning, if you are a tea person, or soothe down your evening, when you are taking your sleepy time chamomile and spearmint tea. If sloths don’t rock your boat, there are manatees, and a ton of other varieties.

The winter is coming, and unless you live in an evergreen country, which Greenland is apparently not one of, or if you routinely have cold hands – here is a USB-powered hand warmer mousepad. If you do live somewhere where it is always warm, just know that you are very lucky and I am utmost jealous.

Skull egg mold
If you want to add an extra zing to your breakfast routine, how about them silicone egg molds? Silicone rubber is generally non-reactive, stable, and resistant to extreme environments and temperatures from -55 °C to +300 °C (or -67 to 570 F) while still maintaining its useful properties.
If the skulls are not your jam, there is a ton of other shapes to pick from. If you don’t eat fried eggs, these can also be used for pancakes. If you don’t eat these either, you can use it to shape sand or something.

For those who want to stand out, and when mason jars are not hipster enough anymore, here is a water bottle that looks like a bulb. You can fill it with bright-colored liquid and hold it above your head in the moments of sudden clarity. These bulbs look pretty cool, and I think more bars should be using them. By the way, these bottles are made of plastic.

The nature of humans is that we always look for the easiest way of doing something, we instinctively search for the past of the least resistance. Look at this phone holder, for example. It’s going to hold your mobile gadgets like phones and tablets at the appropriate level for the ease of use so you can use both of your hands for literally anything else.
And I can’t blame the humanity, having two hands and always wasting one on merely holding the device seems pretty wasteful as far as Homo Sapiens functionality is concerned.

Heat sensitive mugs
Heat sensitive mugs can be a cool gift. The idea here is that once you put hot liquid inside one of these cups and once the walls warm up, the hidden image comes up. The process, called thermochromism, is the property of certain materials to change their own color in response to a change in temperature.
Such heat-sensitive paint is used in a variety of things, including mugs, baby bottles, kettles, car engines and much more.

Adjustable hex wrench
If you are into minimalism and cool gadgets, and are keen on fixing or even maintaining your bicycles on your own, here is an adjustable hex wrench. There are two sizes, the small one can cover nuts sized 7 to 15 mil, and the bigger one works between 12 and 24.
The feedback on it is decent, however some people note that it doesn’t work as well with the tight nuts on the biggest sizes.

And if you want yet another reason for the people on the streets to think that you are an odd fellow, here is a Bluetooth glove. Yes, a bluetooth glove. It connects to your phone, and you can use it to answer your calls. Has science gone too far? Probably.

If a glove like that is not your jam, there is another option: a Bluetooth hat, that has speakers embedded in the sides of it.
