Traditionally, there are two primary types of Advent calendars. One is an annual Christmas decoration—it features 24 doors with miniature ornaments inside, or perhaps partial text of the Nativity story. At the end of the Christmas season, you put it back in the attic with the rest of the holiday decorations until the following year. The other type of Advent calendar, immortalized by the film Bad Santa, has 24 chocolate candies inside.

Nowadays, things aren’t so simple. Disposable Advent calendars have gotten more and more intricate, offering 24 legitimate presents to tide you over until the big day on December 25th. Here are some of the most popular examples:

This O’Keeffe’s Deal Could Not Have Come At A Better Time

At the time of this writing, a variety of O’Keeffe’s topical treatment products are on sale as part of Amazon’s early Black Friday deals. These include their acclaimed “Working Hands” and “Healthy Feet” creams, as well as “Lip Repair” balm and “Skin Repair” moisturizer.

The opportunity to get nearly 50% off on O’Keeffe’s skincare products is one you should not miss out on, especially at this time of year. The air is getting colder and drier, which inevitably results in cracked skin. I discovered Working Hands a few years ago, and ever since it has been a major part of my life each fall and winter. The Healthy Feet cream is also incredibly helpful, and although I cannot recommend the Lip Repair and Skin Repair treatments from personal experience, I have no doubt O’Keeffe’s hit home runs with those products as well.

O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream Value Size, 6.8 Ounce Jar, (Pack of 2) on sale for $14.89

O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Foot Cream, 3.2 ounce Jar, (Pack of 2) — $9.79

O’Keeffe’s Skin Repair Dry Skin Moisturizer, Pump Bottle, 12 ounce, (Pack of 2) — $15

Whether you are reading this post in the days leading up to Black Friday 2021, or you happened to stumble upon it well after the expiration of the discounts, O’Keeffe’s gets a “strong recommend” from the We Know Products team.

This Top-Selling Space Heater Will Help You Weather Winter

The most famous quote from Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Sun Also Rises is a character’s response to the question “How did you go bankrupt?”

“Two ways,” Mike said, “gradually then suddenly.”

Such a description could also be applied to the weather so far this autumn. The temperatures where I live did gradually drop from the 90s to the 80s to the 70s and so forth, but the transition to daily temperatures in the 40s still feels sudden. I have not even had time yet to locate all my winter clothes.

All this is to say, I found myself in immediate need of warmth. Apparently, I am not the only one. The #1 new product on Amazon right now is this impressive little space heater:

Of course it oscillates 70°, and in addition to having a programmable thermostat, it will auto-adjust depending on the temperature of its surroundings.

Fidget toys are going to be a popular gift for kids this Christmas. But there are only so many Pop-Its you can fill your house with before the multicolored monstrosities start driving you insane. I get that the fidget bubble pop toys were designed with sensory stimulation in mind, but why did one of those sense have to be sight? Those things are an eyesore, and you should not feel bad for wanting your child to play with more aesthetically pleasing fidget devices.

That’s where the Infinity Cube comes in.

Infinity Cube Fidget Toy, Sensory Tool EDC Fidgeting Game for Kids and Adults, Cool Mini Gadget Best for Stress and Anxiety Relief and Kill Time, Unique Idea that is Light on the Fingers and Hands — $8.95

The Infinity Cube is a fidget toy from the future. (One YouTube reviewer even calls it “Luxury EDC Fidgeting,” which seems a tad melodramatic.) The Infinity Cubs is a sleek black color, and instead of incessant popping it hearkens back to the early days of fidgeting by allowing for constant hand rotation. It features eight interlocking ABS plastic blocks that you can manipulate in various directions. In a way, it is reminiscent of a Rubik’s Cube, without the frustration that comes from not being able to find a solution.

It comes with all the usual benefits of a fidget toy, helping relieve anxiety and stress while improving focus. Believe it or not, it is even the subject of several ASMR videos.

Just watch the company’s product video, and you will see why. This thing is mesmerizing!
