1. 6 Foot Phone Charger

What's worse your phone dying when you're playing in bed, happily scrolling through Instagram? No worries, you can just grab your charger! The only problem is that the cord is way too short to stretch to your bed.

The gift that keeps on giving is a 6-foot phone charger! Your loved ones will now be able to stay comfortable while charging their phone anywhere. No more charging your phone across the room. Instead, entertainment will always be at the tip of your fingers.

2. Electric Blanket for Their Car

A cold drive is never pleasant, especially if it takes a while for your heat to kick on. The best gift you can gift someone is the gift of warmth and comfort. An electric blanket for their car is sure to bring a smile to their face.

It's easy to use and plugs right into the cigarette lighter. Most are fleece, so even if they aren't plugged in, they're still warm.

3. Wall Mount Plastic Bag Organizer

Let's face it, everyone has a plastic bag full of plastic bags somewhere in their house. Whether it's in your pantry, closet, or under your sink, it takes up space that you could use for something else. Enter a wall-mounted plastic bag organizer!

You'll find that gifting this to someone you love gives them the freedom to create and relieve stress. They can also acknowledge and work towards the goals they have. What better way to celebrate the now than to reflect on the past and how you got where you are today?

Gifts that come straight from the heart are sometimes the best route to go, whether it's to show appreciation or just because. if you're getting your journal for a public servant, like a police officer or firefighter, why not add a challenge coin?
