Please get comfy, and take you wallets out – we are not messing around.

OWL KEY HOLDERS

The first item is a total hoot.

This key holder also has a cool feature! When there are no keys hanging, the owls’ eyes are closed. When there are keys hanging, the owls’ eyes open. Totally not creepy.

EMBROIDERED LETTERS

Yeah, you never made varsity. You didn’t even make junior varsity. Your Dad still doesn’t look at you the same way.

But that’s all about to change with these custom letters! Live out your high school fantasy by purchasing these embroidered letter patches. By purchasing these letters you can be number one on the varsity team all the time. Just imagine the respect you’ll get walking around in your own custom letterman jacket as an adult.

UMBRELLA WALL HANGERS

www aliexpress

Price: $1.26 for 3

You know what everyone needs? Umbrella wall hangers.

That’s what we all work towards, right? Not hooks that hang up your umbrellas, but hooks that look like umbrellas. It’s essential for every household. These umbrella hangers are the ideal ones to purchase for your home.

Not only are they super cute, but they’ll remind you that a raincoat just isn’t enough on a rainy day.

COSMIC KEYCHAINS

Price: $0.85 – 0.91

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. 

BOOKMARKS

Price: $3.00

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. 

NOTHING

Price: $2.84

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. 

CURTAIN HOLDERS

Price: $1.88

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). 

COINS/EARPHONES PURSE

Price: $0.70 + shipping

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. 

DOUBLE-STICK TAPE

Price: $1.96 (1 meter / 3 ft.)

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.

10 Geeky Products from AliExpress for $10 or less

It's been a while since the last Geeky things collection, and since one of the old ones has been doing quite well on my YouTube channel lately, I decided to make a new one.

We will see 10 different products, this time with a price limit of $10 for the budget-conscious buyers.

TUNNEL LED MIRROR

Price: $8.02

The first item today is an infinity lamp with a mirror.

It has a few LEDs inside placed at an angle, so that when you look at it, it gives a neat tunnel effect. The LEDs can be turned off, and it can be used as a regular mirror.

There are different options, in the shape of a unicorn, a heart, a cactus and a few more.

TORTILLA BLANKET

Price: $8.90 – 29.88

Another cool item that we will see today is a pretty popular item lately.

It is something that you may have seen online, but possibly didn’t know where to buy – a tortilla blanket. Wrap yourself in it – sour cream and lime are optional.

This will be the easiest burrito that you have ever made.

They come in a variety of sizes, the smallest one being $8 with free shipping to most countries.

WIRE/GADGET TRAVEL ORGANIZER

Price: $8.49 – 16.99 (depending on size)

If you have a lot of gadgets, you probably have a lot of space cables. And they are most likely sitting in a cabinet somewhere, forming a tangled mess.

To make them more organized, here is a handy cord case.

It can be used for travel, as it has an additional compartment for smaller devices like power banks, tablets and action cameras.

CURVY PLUMBER MAGNETS

Price: $1.05 / piece

This product has been listed in the shop section for quite some time, but lately it has been ordered quite a bit as well.

It’s a magnet set with the only plumber that I will tolerate eating my mushrooms and kicking my turtle.

Each one of these can be purchased for a modest price for $1, so be sure to grab a few for a full set.

KEYCHAINS

Price: $0.82 + shipping

The next product are these blocky keyrings.

There are three options: a rabbit, a T-Rex, and a kitty.

I am not sure what the strap is all about, but the bulb likely indicates that all these cute things want to do is get naughty and make a yummy inter-specie sandwich.

BLOCKY BOIS

Price: $3.89 – 5.39

Some blocky bois.

There are 8 different ones to pick from. The blocks are compatible with the other block sets that you are thinking of, though these ones cost a fair bit less.

They are a bit smaller than you might think – which is pretty expected for the price.

REUSABLE BAG

Price: $3.71

On average, a person uses a plastic carrier bag for about 12 minutes, and we recycle only one of every 200 we use.

A reusable bag does not seem like a bad idea, and here is a portable and collapsible one that can be easily carried around and easily folded back in when you are done using it.

MAGIC HANDKERCHIEF

Price: $3.99

The next product is a cool trick thing that you can use to impress all of your friends, as long as all your friends are 6 years old or younger. It is a handkerchief that can go through your smartphone.

A good magician never reveals his secrets. But there are bad magicians on YouTube that can explain to you how it works.

PET BRUSH

Price: $9.73

Here is a smart brush for the pet owners.

Unfortunately, it is not smart enough to connect to your smartphone to track the total amount of strokes your pet is receiving.

But it does have the extendable cover to remove the fur from the bristles, which will make it much easier to clean.

BOTTLE HOLDERS

Price: $9.75

Here we have a creative bottle holder for the fine things connoisseurs.

This thing creates an illusion of defying gravity, which coincidentally is what the liquid inside such bottles usually does.

There are four different options, three differently colored chains, and a rope that looks like a malnourished snake.

15 Best-selling things of 2019 Q3 for $5 or less

A new compilation of the best-selling things that you can get from AliExpress for $5 or less. There will be 15 products in this post that are placed in no particular order. We added things based on the amount of recent orders in our internal sales data.

Now, following this dry as a dead nun's gusset intro, we proceed to the products, which are hopefully a tad more lively and exciting.

MUSIC BOX

Price: $2.79

A music box that comes in the form of a keychain for a true music enthusiast. Once you wind it up, it starts playing a short simple tune. There is no batteries required, the music box is wound up using the dial on the side.

This dumb little thing has over 2800 orders, and I’m pretty sure it’s about to get a few more.

LETTER RINGS

Price: $0.89

Quite possibly the cheapest ever option for a custom gift – a ring with the custom initial.

There are options for each letter of the alphabet, and 3 colors for the material to choose from.

BOTTLE OPENER

Price: $3.02

If you think that the world is overpopulated by about 50%, here is a bottle opener that will reflect your beliefs.

It already has all the 6 stones in it, so $3 plus shipping is a pretty fair deal to increase your power of opening bottles if you ask me.

SOLAR GRASSHOPPER

Price: $1.50

This little grasshopper is another solar toy that has been purchased over 4000 times and it has over 1600 reviews to attest to its dumb cuteness.

Once exposed to the sun, the legs of the grasshopper start moving, and he starts shaking and walking. Some units have been reported as defective, but the seller has no problems issuing refunds for those.

WATER BOTTLES

Price: $3.05

These bottles with cute animals have also been ordered a fair bit. The pictures of the animals are cute, and the bottles remind you that life is beautiful at no extra cost.

MICROFIBER SPORTS TOWELS

Price: $1.17 – 2.46

Small and absorbent microfiber towels. They are quick to dry, and are pretty effective for their small size.

There are two options in this listing, either the towel on its own, or a towel that comes with the carrying case.

The material is pretty interesting, while it does have the ability to quickly pick up water, it also is really easy to quickly squeeze it out, thus combined with the size that makes it a perfect towel for sports.

AUTONOMOUS WATERING DEVICE

Price: $0.95

If you are going on a vacation, but don’t want your plants to die, here is a very simple but a very useful device.

The plastic drip stick inserts into the ground and slowly feeds the water through, drop by drop like your grandpa at 3 am. It is compatible with all regular-sized bottle necks, so any water or pop bottle would do.

The speed of the flow can be adjusted with the knob.

TUBE SQUEEZERS

Price: $0.26

For the people who like to get the absolute maximum efficiency and bang for their buck out of everything, here is a tube squeezer.

The strong jaws of any of the 4 critters are going to squeeze the absolute last drop out of your toothpaste, hand cream, or whatever other tube that you put into it, and they do it for much cheaper than the friendly faces at the rear entrance of that shady gas station.

MINIMALIST MAGNETIC LACES

Price: $2.18

A minimalist option of the magnetic laces with the option to ship it out of China or the United States. The elastic string comes with two little magnets on the ends that are easy to clip and unclip, which will save you a few seconds of your time every day.

They don’t look like the best-looking laces out there, but they do the trick. There are 24 different color options available in this listing.

BALLOON DOG STATUETTES

Price: $4.10

Cute dog balloon statuettes. There are a lot of different sizes available on AliExpress, with the sub $5 ones being the cheapest. They are unique, pretty and original, and they come in 4 different colors. 

NAIL SET

Price: $2.49

A matte black 7-piece nail care set. Not the most exciting and interesting product, but a useful one nonetheless.

It comes with a box, which will be easy to take with you on the road. According to the reviews, the items inside are sharp and work well.

PHOTOSHOP PINS

Price: $0.59 – 1.97

Enamel pins for the graphic designers. Most of them are under $1, except for two last of them.

There are 10 different options, and the last one is a discount deal. 

BOWL CLIP

Price: $2.99

Handy duck head-looking 2-in-1 clips and scoops. They are advertised as dog food scoops, presumably due to the size of the scoop, but they can be used for anything – sugar, salt, rice, and so on. On a side note, I was disappointed by the lack of dog pictures in the feedback section for this product.

50 COMPRESSED TOWELS

Price: $4.14

If you don’t want a good quality microfiber towel, or if you need more, here is the listing for 50 crappy compressed towels that would probably leave a few customs workers scratching their heads in confusion.

If you haven’t seen these before, you need to drop these tablets into the water and they will expand into little towelettes that are better described as napkin-sized cloth.

STONER SOCKS

Price: $1.20

Ankle socks that we had listed in the shop section website for quite some time, that since then have been ordered over 14,000 times. As you can see, they have faces embroidered in them that peek out if you wear them with low top shoes.

There are 10 different designs, and at this low price you may as well get yourself a few pairs. Their shape would be specifically good for the new shoes, as they would protect the back of the foot against annoying blisters.

Pretty sweet things for $1 or less

It’s been quite some time since the last one dollar post, plus the 30 gadgets for $3 or less has been a main source for the views for the channel for the last little while, so I thought, why not make a separate post for the sub-1 dollar electronic gadgets?

Please keep your expectations proportionate to the price, though I have to say that these deals are going to be better than most of the stuff that you can find at your local dollar store.

Let’s begin!

CABLE PROTECTORS

If you already have cables that you care about, you can prolong their lifespan by using one of these wire retainer clips. These can be used for charging cables and earphones, on both the earbud portion and the end that inserts into the phone or into a music player. These will prevent your wires from bending at the place where most of the time the cables get damaged, which will keep the wire working longer.

If you have the original charging cables or expensive earphones, this is a cheap way to insure that they are going to last longer. This solution will also work with the cables that already started bending and ripping, to make them last for a little longer before the inevitable happens.

REINFORCED TIP CABLE

Generally speaking, OEM cables cost a lot of money, which is why they are a popular item to get on AliExpress. This is a very good deal on a cable, considering its quality and durability. The hard reinforced tip will prevent the cable from bending at an unusual angle, which will make it last a lot longer.

The shortest option costs less than $1, and there are all three major types of plugs available, even including iPhones.

PHONE CASES

If you look, you can also find a number of good and inexpensive phone cases. Cases such as these are usually sold by stores for an upwards of $7 dollars, which is a bit too much for something that simple. There are a lot of different phone models available, and a lot of pretty and colorful designs.

A lot more cases for other models in this AliExpress store.

USB-C TO AUX OUTPUT

Many new phones come with no 3.5mm AUX input, supposedly to save space and make the phones smaller or lighter, but it comes at a questionable price of not being able to use your regular favourite earphones with them. A selection of earphones with USB type-C input is limited, but this issue can be solved with a handy adapter like this.

AUX SPLITTER

If you have 2 pairs of ears, but only one music player, or 4 people, who are willing to use 1 earphone each, here is an earphone splitter. It comes with an insert that goes into the output, and it comes with a keyring for better portability.

2-IN-1 PEN+STYLUS

This thing may look like a regular pen, and it is partially true. It does all the things that you expect a normal pen to do, but it also is a stylus. The tip on the back works with conventional touchscreens, which means you can use this groundbreaking technology to write and draw in both analogue and digital world. When the pen runs out of ink, the reservoir can be replaced, or you can simply throw the pen portion out and keep only the back tip.

OTG ADAPTERS

OTG, or on-the-go smartphones can be used with different USB devices, for example with a mouse, a keyboard, a card reader, a gaming console, and so on. To connect them though you will need something like this small adapter. There are two options that you will see below: one for the USB-C devices, which is a faster USB 3.0 adapter, and one for the micro-USB, which is a regular older USB 2.0 protocol. There also is an option for slightly more than $1 with the keyring.

CABLE HOLDERS (4 PCS.)

Cable holders for a more convenient way of carrying cables. Earphones and charging cables tend to form a tangly mess when transported, especially when you put 2 or more of them together, which is a big pain to untangle, especially on a regular basis. Here you get 4 durable silicone cable knots, for less than $1 dollar including the price of the shipping.

MAGNETIC CABLE HOLDER

This is meant as a cable holder, which is their main use, but it goes a bit beyond that. There are two magnets to keep the cables together, which adds a few additional use cases. These can be used to attach things to whiteboards and other applicable surfaces, or as a temporary bookmark. You can get creative here, your fantasy is the only limit.

USB LED LIGHT

Here is a small portable LED light that can be used with your power bank. The strength of this light is approximately 120 lumen, which isn’t a lot, but will be enough to find your way around during camping or in a dark room. LEDs require a lot less power to run than conventional bulbs, which means it is not going to require that much power to run. It’s lightweight at only 7 grams or half an ounce, and it has a dedicated on/off switch.

BENDABLE USB LIGHT

This is a classic USB light, which I have a few of lying around. This one is more suitable for reading, as it is not as bright, and there are several LED’s in the bulb. The light is bendable so that you can put it in a more appropriate and useful angle. This light has a soft and smooth coating, and feels more expensive than its price.

WIRE HOLDER

Here is a wire holder that I have been using and recommending to you for a while. This thing can hold up to 5 wires for the easy access, so you can keep them plugged in and ready to be used at all times. It will also keep the cables away from the floor to avoid them being stepped on. The holder has a sticky pad on the back for the easy application, so you can remove the protective paper, stick it on and start using it.

If you haven’t bought one yet, get yourself a few, they are amazing.

DIY ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS

On the off chance that you are into DIY electronics, AliExpress can be a good source for the different electronic components, the prices for which are said to be lower than getting them locally, except for the off chance that you live at the factory that makes them.

USB CARD READER

A simple USB card reader. These ones have almost 5,000 orders in this listing alone, and we have featured them in our very first $1 things video. This card reader supports 4 different types of cards, including SD and Micro-SD cards. There are a few different color available. There is virtually no difference between them, but the black and red ones are more than 2 times the price of the other ones.

CABLE TIES

Not exactly a gadget either, but here is a sweet deal on cable tires, which can be used for electronics, as well as many other household or automotive purposes. Longer ones are even used by the police and adventurous couples when there are no handcuffs available. Of course, they are easy to get out of. There are different lengths available here.

A 100-piece set of the shortest ones, which are 6 cm or 2 inches long, can be bought for $0.55.

EARPHONES/CABLES CASE

If you want to keep your earphones even safer, here is a carrying case. It has a zipper on the size, and two protective walls on the outside. You can find either round or square options. Round ones are my preference, because they fit smaller and the lack of corners makes them more comfortable to carry around. One of the sides has a mesh pouch, which means you can carry two different wires in the same case without worrying about them tangling.

CABINET LIGHTS

And here we have a wireless light. It comes with sticky tape pre-applied to the back. You peel them off, and attach the light to any surface wherever you might need it – inside a cabinet, in the washroom for night use, or above the bed for reading at night. It turns on by a simple touch, and works off 3 AAA batteries.
