1. A mini Crock-pot that keeps your lunch warm during the day because it’s time to start loving you and avoid eating chilli at room temperature.
It has a capacities of 20 units and is fitted with a dishwasher-safe removable bag.
This thing is amazing. I was concerned about some of the comments that talked about leaking, but I bought it anyway. At first, it did leak, but here’s why. When you get the crockpot there is a little grey piece that covers the inner pot before the lid goes on. I did not use that piece, because I thought it was just for storage. I didn’t see anything about it in the pamphlet that came with it. Also, I figured if the pot was hot, it would be impossible to remove. Without that piece on the pot (and with it plugged in), there is a large buildup of condensation that occurs, and the pot does leak when it is moved (every time). I finally got fed up and started trying the piece that goes over the inner pot. I just put it on loosely. It completely stopped the problem (go figure). It wasn’t hard to remove, and now I have zero complaints. My food is always warm by lunch, my coworkers are always commenting on it, and I’m happy because I’m not eating fast food or the junk that’s readily available at my job. I highly recommend this product. – Michelle H
2. A pair of headphones insulating noise which will help drown your colleagues out… Your friends are just your bruising neighbours at the moment.
Got these for my 13 years old who listens to music constantly. They are great sound and they block out the annoying sounds from his younger brother so he can enjoy his music. They fold up nice for going in his book ag while at school. – Jennifer H.
3. A Ceramic mug warmer, as tea should be served warm and the life is far too short for coffee at room temperature.
This warms up much faster and hotter than my previous warmers. Of course, your experience will vary depending on the material, thickness, and footprint of your vessel… as well as the starting temperature of your drink, if there is a lid or not, ambient room temp, etc. For my needs—I use this to keep a small ceramic teapot warm at work—it keeps it sufficiently hot. Please see photos for surface temp.
The only changes I would want would be for auto shut-off timer and a different design. I almost didn’t buy this unit because of the looks. I would’ve much preferred one in plain ceramic white or black.
In summary, this is by far the best cup warmer I’ve owned and I’m happy with it. –
4. Personal heater so that you stay warm and toasty without wearing a blanket or about 8 coats. And a beanie. And a beanie. And handkerchiefs.
I had just ordered this little thing to warm my toes in my cold office, which it did just fine. But it’s earned my lifelong appreciation for not burning everything down after I forgot it was on, on Thursday night. I thought it was uncharacteristically warm in my office on Monday, and there it was, humming along cheerfully under my desk.
To sum up: Keeps my toes warm, didn’t burn down my office and kill the people in the four apartments upstairs in their sleep. Five stars. – David Traver Adolphus

5. A memory foam seat and a lumbar cushion, because it is not comfortable and you deserve better to buy the cheap office chair at the start of a pandemic.
I have several issues with my back, two herniated disks, scoliosis and a twisted hip, it’s a mess in there. On top of everything, I injured my tailbone last summer. Comfilife coccyx cushion has been a lifesaver to alleviate sitting pain after the injury and I am pretty happy with the quality of their products & customer service so I jumped on it when I saw they also make a lumbar pillow. Best decision ever.
I am now using my memory foam seat cushion with the lumbar pillow, they perfectly complete each other and transformed my old office chair into a premium orthopaedic chair sold in ergonomic furniture stores. The lumbar pillow supports my posture and the seat cushion relieves sitting pain. I don’t think I can ever go back to sitting long hours without these two. Planning on getting a second set for my dad as a fathers day gift. Thank you for offering such nice products at affordable prices. –
