Around this time of year, allergies are a pain. Humidifiers can combat this and help people who experience dry skin, hair and throats, asthma, sinus headaches and irritated eyes. The device puts moisture into the air and is the equivalent of drinking water. It hydrates your body and surrounding objects like plants. If your mom or other mothers in your life are snorers, or have a husband/boyfriend/partner who is, you can alleviate that as well. Dry throats make snoring worse. Payment ranges from $20 to $250 depending on the size and brand. You can find them on the shelves at Target, Walmart, Gadgets and Gizmos, Macy’s and Bed Bath and Beyond.

4) Thankful Box
