Uh-oh, you feel that? It's the tingling of a 3:00am urination brewing inside. It's too strong to ignore, but getting out of bed in the pitch-dark is a recipe for accidentally running into a wall or stepping on a cat. The BrightFeet Lighted Slippers ($27), shine a dull light from the toes so that you can see where you're walking. Wearing these, you'll be able to find your way to the bathroom without having to turn on the blinding overhead lights.
You better keep this Zuny Orca Whale Bookend ($56) where it belongs - holding up your books - and high out of reach, because if Junior sees this adorable iron-sand-filled orca and decides to grab Shamu from the shelf, Junior will fall over (and so will your books).
Well, they've done it. Linus's new Eleanor bike bag ($169) is absolutely perfect for the lady for whom biking is simply a way of life and a way to get from place to place.

It snaps on and off your rear rack with ease thanks to a set of leather-covered hooks and includes a D-ring so you can lock it up if you'd prefer to leave the bag installed while you run your errands.

We're often jealous of passengers who think to bring neck pillows on airplanes, but who wants to carry that thing around while waiting in the terminal? Cocoon's Ultralight Air-Core Neck Pillow ($30) is compact, fitting easily into your existing carry-on luggage until you're on your flight and ready to nap. The pillow is inflatable, but don't worry about having to huff your own air into it at 30,000 feet: the neck pillow's twist valve allows you to fill it up effortlessly.
So long, sweatpants! The weather's heating up and we're gearing up to kick back in style.

Get 'em while they're hot! These Meadow Green Canvas Wellies ($53, on sale) from Joules are too English countryside for words. You may not be traipsing through the moors, but you can pretend you are while you wear them (if your imagination is good enough to block out the sounds of rush hour traffic and the construction work that started across from your apartment building).
It's no wonder that people prefer sending emails rather than traditional letters at this point - you don't have to taste the tangy glue when licking your envelope. With a set of cherry-flavored envelopes ($10), however, running your tongue along the envelope will become your favorite part of sending mail. If artificial cherry is not to your liking, check out Flavorlopes for other varieties like orange, grape, strawberry, and apple.
We've always loved Cetaphil's gentle face products, so we were excited to hear about their new Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths ($10). Throw them in your suitcase or purse for on-the-go makeup removal, or use them at home to avoid drenching your entire bathroom counter in water when you wash your face.

Thank goodness for Tanky ($59), the sleek shell top with a pet name and a pattern so intricate and mind-bending that even if you spill some spaghetti sauce on it, nobody will ever see it. In fact, the pattern may be so effective at obscuring spills and stains that you won't be able to find them when you return to spot clean it later. Thanks, Tanky!
Is there anything scarier than waking up to find that your healthy-looking bottle glow has turned into a streaky, nuclear orange disaster overnight? This remover mitt ($11) won't make you stop sucking at applying tanning lotion, but it will help you clean up the evidence by removing product buildup and buffing away patches and streaks. As far as we're concerned, everyone should own one just in case.
Not only is this miniature electric toothbrush ($30) super compact - it's about the size of a tube of mascara - it comes in nine fashionable colors. Just pop in one AAA battery, slip it into your pocket or purse, and order the pesto for lunch.
