The fringe is nice and thick, the length is very proportional, and the color of the fringe is simply delightful.

“Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn’t have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I’ve purchased an Etsy product from!”

Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $15.99.

20. A vintage camper birdhouse to give your winged friends a very, very dope experience when they come over. An Airbnb for birds, of sorts.

Highly recommend!” —Lauren Woods

Get it from 1Man1Garage for $32+ (available in 10 colors).

21. DIY cocktail (or mocktail!) kits for days when you miss the magic of an expertly crafted drink but NOT the arm work it takes to flag down a mixologist wrapped in conversation with boobs and red lipstick at the other end of the bar. Try the classics OR unique cocktails like Berry Lavender Lemonade. 😋

They’re from a brand based in Chicago! For the spicy margarita: Just place the infusion bag in a container (like a mason jar) with tequila. Infuse for at least three days, then just take out the bag and make your drink! All the packets are handmade, filled with dehydrated fruits, veggies, spices, and herbs — and each kit is enough to infuse 8 to 10 cocktails. Bottoms up, babies!

Promising review: “This was fantastic! Quick shipping, too. I followed the steps completely and it tastes just like a Moscow Mule. Great to know it was made with all fruits and spices. There was no mystery about what was in my cocktail! Highly recommend and will definitely be purchasing from this shop again.” — Jay RA

Get the classic Moscow Mule kit from InBooze on Etsy for $18 (more kits available in 17 flavors; the Spicy Margarita cocktail mix def has my name all over it.)
