Flash Post: Everyday Pretty
What It Is: DO NOT underestimate the value of a pretty, everyday household item, such as the ones pictured above from US retailer alice supply co. Because I can promise you, when you reach into the cupboard or broom closet or storage room to haul out your multi-coloured screwdriver, dustpan, or *shudder*, plunger, you will at least be given a momentary distraction from whatever chore you’re going to trudge through. In fact, you may actually find extra reasons to tidy up the house or tighten the legs of that patio chair, if only to bask in the cute and complementary styles of the entire collection. The stripe motif pictured above is the most universal across the brand’s line of items, but if it’s not to your liking there are a dozen other options, including a new Union Jack design that’ll have you doing housework with Olympic effort, or a camo collection that’s ideal for ‘him’.
Who It’s For: Your best friend’s housewarming gift. Your sister’s bridal shower gift. Your mom’s ‘thanks for taking care of me for 20+ years’ gift - after she also helps move you into your own place. You may be gone, but there’s still work to be done! Also I should point out. I used ladies in this example not cause they should bear the brunt of the housework, but because a lady finally got in there and created pretty tools for the chores we sometimes pitch in to do. S’all.
What It Costs: Most hover start around the $26 mark.
Where It’s At: You can order online at the alice supply co. website, or check their list of Lucky Retailers to find one near you.
