There are still Black Friday sales upon us, folks. And while you have plenty of tech items and appliances to explore, we interrupt this message to bring you some ingenious products that can make a big dent in your gift list—all on sale.

We’ve found great deals on brilliant problem-solving gizmos that really make life easier (and couldn’t we all use an assist right now?). When you give these gifts to friends or family—or yourself (because you might just need every single one of them)—they’ll think of you with gratitude every time they use them. So see below, and buy in multiples (you’ll be so glad you did), while these sales are in effect and stock is available. We predict sell-outs across the board.

If you choose flat masks over cone or cup-shaped ones, you’re probably used to inhaling a mouthful of fabric, getting lipstick all over your mask (or just forgoing lipstick altogether), and having perpetually fogged up glasses. But place this flexible bracket over your mouth before putting on your mask, and all of the aforementioned woes are gone. Made from food-grade material, the brackets are washable and reusable. Amazon shoppers can’t get enough of this product. (And you can finally break out your favorite lipstick again.)

Does your hair always clog your bathtub drain? This brilliant hair catcher is an Amazon best-seller, and it’s about to change your life (and save you money on a plumber).

The genius of the TubShroom lies in its brilliant design. Due to its cylindrical “mushroom” shape, you don’t actually see any of the hair, soap or residue buildup until you’re ready to clean it. The product is made of silicone—it’s flexible and and easy fit in a variety of tub drains. Water passes through, but hair gets caught, wrapping around the tube. Now and then, just pull it out, clean it (the hair comes off easily) and put it back in place.

Shop it: TubShroom Chrome Edition Revolutionary Tub Drain Protector Hair Catcher, $13 (was $20), amazon.com
