Yes, you’re seeing what you think you’re seeing. A simple yet brilliant upgrade to an item we depend on all day, every day. So simple, in fact, that we wonder why we didn’t think of it (and are kicking ourselves for that). It’s charging cord (that works with any USB port) that also happens to be a string of colored Christmas lights. I mean....

Rather than see this as a seasonal thing, we choose to embrace it as the norm. Who doesn’t want holiday cheer all year round? Who couldn’t use a smile every time she plugs in her phone, or a little pool of color on the desk as a reminder to charge? We are crossing over to the bright side.

At 50 inches, this phone charger is not only way prettier than the plain ones, but it’s also longer. What could be better?

At just $15, this model makes a natural stocking stuffer—just the thing to light up a friend’s day or make you the most popular Secret Santa or White Elephant participant come December.

Start the most wonderful time of the year early and make it last and last. Cookies, music, charging cord—action!
