Trump toilet brush, inappropriate fridge magnets and other gifts under $5

New Year is coming, Christmas is coming, maybe someone-who-is-somewhat-important-to-you's birthday is coming – but we're on a verge of a financial collapse, and you just can't spend too much money.

No reason to worry! There is a fine line between having to go bottle binning and being able to afford to bring some joy via the means of surprising them with a novel physical possession.

In this post we have picked 20 best selling things from AliExpress for $5 or less. Buy away! And maybe get something for yourself too.

Best-selling things from AliExpress

TELESCOPIC SINK RACK

best selling things aliexpress

Price: $4.83

The first thing today is this handy telescopic sink rack. It fits any kitchen sink – the size is adjustable.

You can make it bigger or smaller depending on the sink width, and load it with the sponges and steel wool balls and any other miscellaneous stuff that you might need to dry and use.

On the side there is a little rack thing for drying the wiping cloth. The rack has slots on the bottom, so that it does not collect the water.

SLIGHTLY INAPPROPRIATE MAGNETS

aliexpress best sellers

Price: $2.99

Here we have slightly inappropriate, but artistic in their own way avocado and banana magnets. Best fit for fridges, but if you have any other metallic surfaces, like a furnace or an oven door, they can be placed on them as well.

SLIME CLEANERS

ali express bestseller

Price: $2.50

Here is a 90’s childhood favourite – a cleaning slime. Just as the self-improvement book your parents hopelessly got you for Christmas, it is good for collecting dust, albeit in a more concentrated manner.

Just like your girlfriend at a Bed, Bath & Beyond, is quite efficient at picking up junk.

FRIDGE CABINETS

how to find aliexpress best sellers

Price: $4.20

Another thing that is pretty handy in a household is these fridge cabinets. They will help with organizing the fruits, veggies and any other knick-knacks you might have randomly and disorganizedly sitting around. 

GREEK STATUES

best sellers in aliexpress

Price: $1.13+

Check out these greek statues. There are 10 different options to pick from. The attention to detail on them is pretty outstanding, if you ask me.

They are sold individually, and it is better to buy more than one to complete the look.

Speaking of organization, I’d like to bring your attention to the BackIt cashback plugin.

If you’re buying things from stores like AliExpress, GearBest, Shein, Banggood and others, and not using cashback, you’re just leaving the money on the table. With a cashback plugin you can get 5 to 12% of your money back.

It’s really easy – for desktop users, install the extension, and click it before you buy something on AliExpress. For mobile users, install the app, and open it before you shop. It’s that easy.

The payouts start at $0.20 for PayPal, and $100 for bank transfers. The link to the cashback is below ⬇️ 

Cashback Extension (for desktops)

Cashback App (for mobile users)

NAIL CLIPPER

Price: $1.92

This nail clipper got curves.

According to the feedback, it is very sharp and solid, and the angle of it makes it easier to operate.

I didn’t know I needed my nail clipper to be ergonomic, but now that I think of it, it makes perfect sense.

WOODEN SPATULAS

Price: $0.95+

Another item that is pretty classy are these solid wood spatulas and spoons.

Wood is better than plastic, as it does not melt when you are scraping it against hot pots, and it is less likely to leach chemicals into your food. Typically, such kitchen products are sold at $4 and more at our local homeware stores. 

STICKY PAD & SMARTPHONE STAND

Price: $1.69

Here is another type of sticky pad. These ones are sold per unit rather than a roll. The key differences are:

1. The durability – this one is meant to be reused, and is made out of a more durable material that keeps shape, and

2. This one has a solid plastic piece in the middle, which can be used as a smartphone stand (OPTION 1 FROM THE LISTING)

MAGNETIC SMARTPHONE HOLDER FOR CARS

Price: $2.69

Here is a newer version of the magnetic holder for the car.

This is a newer version: now with the sleeker design and different sizes for plate options. It makes driving safer, skipping crappy songs easier, and GPS use smoother.

You can simply attach the included magnet to the back of your phone, place the holder anywhere on your dashboard, and reap the benefits of easy phone use.

FAST CHARGE MAGNETIC CABLE

Price: $2.77+

This is a magnetic charger cable that we’ve seen before, but this is a newer version of it, which now comes with a fast charge capability.

The cable is able to transfer more data and more power to your phone, because ain’t nobody got time for sitting around for 8 hours for their smartphone to charge.

There are options for Micro-USB, USB type-C and for iPhones.

EARRINGS

Price: $0.58

These earrings have been the best-selling earrings on AliExpress in the last few months.

There is a ton of listings for them, this one being the biggest discounted one.

FACE MASKS

Price: $2.32

Face masks – pun very much intended.

There are 6 different designs and almost 4,000 orders in this listing. The face masks are now made mandatory in a lot of countries, and this one is more fun than a simple one.

2 IN 1 LADLE + STRAINER

Price: $0.85

Here is another device that can make regular kitchen tasks more efficient – a two in one colander and ladle.

It has holes on one side, and a scooping part on the other – it makes removing the veggies from soup easier.

DRAWSTRING POUCHES

Price: $0.21

Christmas is coming, and the people that aren’t important enough to get a big present, but are not unimportant enough to be left without one can get something small placed into one of these cure drawstring pouches.

They are also useful for organizing the little things in your pantry.

RATTAN COASTERS

Price: $0.91+

Just about the only bad thing about owning an all-mahogany piano, is how posh people leave their negroni old fashioned drinkware on top of it, leaving it with moisture rings, that this 100-year old oak just can’t handle with grace.

These rattan coasters come in 4 sizes, and are perfect for making your morning Greek yoghurt parfaits feel even more fancy.

OVERLY CONFIDENT MAN‘ T-SHIRT

Price: $4.99

I don’t think this T-shirt needs an introduction, as it already feels quite comfortable around us.

Not sure this is the level of comfort I strive to achieve around hundreds of strangers, but if you’d like to have this lovely image displayed on your shirt like 500 of others did, the link is below.

ROTATING STAPLER

Price: $3.53

Here is a true gamechanger: a rotating stapler. It is a true staple of a proper executive office.

No longer you have to fiddle around with paper, trying to adjust the angle, awkwardly moving the paper around. This thing has a rotating top, with the head action second to none.

DOUBLE DISED TAPE ROLL

Price: $1.90+

A roll of double-sided tape. A thing that is very handy in the household tasks.

It will hold your smartphones attached to the wall. It is less likely to hold your life together. A 1-meter roll can be bought for $1.90, which is pretty reasonable.

EGGPLANT / PEA PENCIL CASES

Price: $4.87

And while we are on the p-word topic, here is an eggplant pencil holder. There is an option for a less elegant design, being a pea as well.

ORANGE MAN TOILET BRUSH

Price: $1.93

In honour of the election events, here is a tremendous toilet brush. It’s orange. Maybe it will do a better job at draining, or at least cleaning the swamp 😉

Owl Holders, Cosmic Key Chains + 8 Other Things for $3 or LESS

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

Cheap and Useful AliExpress Gadgets

OWL KEY HOLDERS

cheap aliexpress gadgets

Price: $1.97

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.

Who doesn’t like owls? And who doesn’t like not losing their keys? Well, now every owl-lover can gain the wisdom of this predator of the sky by purchasing this key holder. You’ll never lose your keys again with a designated spot as cute as this one.

Also, who doesn’t love Unicorns? Like, how super cute! 🦄

EMBROIDERED LETTERS

aliex best deals

Price: $0.74 + shipping

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.

Hey, maybe even your Dad will respect you this time around!

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.

This is a staple in cheap gadgets: it serves a good purpose and doesn't cost a lot.

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. Cheap gadgets don't get any more useful than this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
