Tired of Adulting? No Prob-LLAMA! Instant Happy Notes + More Fun Stuff to Beat the Winter Blues

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Being a grownup got you down? You’re never too old for a new lunchbox or a great set of colored pencils! In fact, when I spotted this Llama Lunchbox, I knew it would be perfect for holding all of my coloring and drawing supplies. It got me inspired, and since I figure I’m not alone in needing a little pick-me-up to help cure the winter blues, I put together a little list of fun and random stuff to make you smile.

Feeling happy can start with making other people smile, too! This book of 101 Instant Sticky Happy Notes can be used in your kiddos lunchbox, your spouses laptop bag, your co-workers cubicle or anywhere you and yours need a mini message of happiness. I got these in my January PopSugar Must Have Box and have been sticking them all over the place!

Winter is cold and flu season and that means lots of hand-washing to keep the germs away! Add some cuteness to your bathroom or kitchen counter with this adorable Bunny Ring Holder. It’s got a padded base and comes in other animal shapes and colors, too.

Feel like hybernating or catching an extra cat nap? This Cat Eye Sleep Mask is both fun AND functional. It’s purr-fect for helping you get more zzz’s and has gel inserts that can be chilled or warmed for added relaxation and rejuvenation anytime.

Nobody knows exactly how a pile of poop became one of the most popular emojis around, but it’s come to have multiple meanings and is useful in oh so many situations. One thing all dog moms and dads can agree on is that ‘poop happens’ so we might as well keep our sense of humor about it. That’s what makes this set of 6 Poop Emoji Keychains so great! Go ahead and grab a pack or two to use with holiday gifts and as stocking stuffers.

Although these are small emoji (2 inches each), they have lots of uses if you get creative!

Ideas for using Poop Emoji Keychains:
  • Attach to ribbon on a wrapped holiday gift instead of a bow
  • As ornaments on a miniature Christmas Tree
  • As a leash or collar clip for your dog
  • For kids and teenagers to clip on their bookbag or backpack
  • Clip it on your rear view mirror
  • Wear one on your work lanaird
  • Use it as a keychain
  • For your favorite vet techs or pet sitters
