The credit goes to my sister who has always given gifts that prioritize practicality and general life usefulness: The Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner (the H11 model, priced at $60) from Eufy by Anker is exactly that—practical, useful and a gamechanger when it comes to cleaning crumbs and dust bunnies caught in the most hard-to-reach places.
Case in point: My car. I’m a mom to a 5-year-old who has a natural affinity for trashing most surfaces either by tracking dirt and mud in even on a rain-free day or stepping right on the Goldfish crackers he dropped, grinding the pieces into the car mats and making it impossible to quickly pick up.
It might also be useful to understand a bit about me: I’m a bit of a Danny Tanner when it comes to keeping things clean. I get a lot of joy from it—or at least I get joy from the feeling of a space that is pristine. My son wreaks havoc on this, which is where this handheld vacuum comes in.
