We have the SnapPower Outlet Lights and we absolutely love them. They were so easy to install and now provide a sleek nightlight when it turns dark.

This sleek LED night-light built into a light switch cover installs in just seconds over your existing light switch and matches the decor of your home. This will be perfect in the hall bath so the kids won't have trouble in the middle of the night. $17; SnapPower

As a blogger, I receive lots of promotional power banks. The problem is, they're useless if I forget to bring along my cables.

The rechargeable 4400mAh portable charger is the quintessential powerbank. With an integrated Apple® Lightning™ cable and an integrated micro-USB cable, staying charged on the go has never been easier. Carrying cables is a thing of the past, not only are the cables built in for effortless charging but wall prongs are built-in for effortless recharging.$68; Amazon.com
