First off, I hope we’re all washing our hands! With the COVID pandemic and the arrival of flu season, it’s safest to practice the best hygiene routines. That means washing your hands after you go out, see people, touch things, pretty much anything. But all the hand washing has led to dry and irritated skin for many of us.

Burt’s Bees makes some of my favorite products, like this honey and grapeseed oil hand cream. It’s small enough to keep on hand (aha!) while on the go or store at your desk. It’s an easy gift to give to any friend or family member for instant satisfaction.

Something as simple as a new mouse pad for just $7.99 or a genius mug warmer for around $10 can make all the difference during someone&rsquos workday.
