HidrateSpark Water Bottle


Using all that brainpower means you’re going to need to hydrate frequently to keep your body running in tip-top shape. However, we all know the struggle of forgetting to drink as much water as we should. This reusable water bottle eliminates that problem! This smart bottle tracks your water intake and reminds you to drink by lighting up and through their free app connected via Bluetooth.   


L.L. Bean Lunch Box


It’s just as important to pack a healthy, nutritious lunch for yourself at work as it is in school. If you’re online learning or working from home, you can bring your lunch box to any remote work location such as a study room or the park! This L.L. Bean Lunch Box comes in four fun colors with plenty of storage and features a mesh pocket to stash cutlery, an ice pack, or more snacks. 


Touchland Hand Sanitizer


This cult-favorite spray hand sanitizer will be your new must-have accessory. The Touchland Power Mist comes in a variety of different scents and colors, all rolled into one compact, aesthetically pleasing package. Each spray hand sanitizer bottle contains 500+ spritzes to keep you germ-free at home, the office, or the classroom without needing to refill too soon. 


French Press Coffee Maker


A French Press is every caffeine addict’s dream, and this one comes in seven different finishes! This classic model was designed in the fifties and has only gotten better with age. The best part? It’s easy to use; just add coffee grounds and hot water. Get ready to take on that Zoom class or business meeting with a fresh cup of joe in hand. 


The Hook Door Opener


The hook door opener was designed to let you move about your day without having to touch shared surfaces. In a time when everyone is much more germ-conscious than we used to be, this is the perfect accessory for whenever you leave the house. Use the hook to open doors or use keypads, all touchless. As a bonus, the hook is made out of antimicrobial 260 brass to keep transferred germs at bay.
