We all have that one friend, spouse, or family member that’s forgetful. Maybe that person is you. I certainly forget things all the time – nobody’s perfect, right? These 11 products were made for those that often let things slip their mind.

Do you know someone that could use one of these?

1. Imagelock

I’ve always been bad with numbers, so using this type of combination-lock this is definitely up my alley.


Imagelock, $2.50

2. Birdie Wall Hooks

Metal items will stick to their cute little bodies and these little birdies will hold an important message in their beaks. Cute and practical, without a lot of bling.

6. A Button That’s Completely Honest

If I meet you at an event, in a bar, or on the street, it’s guaranteed I won’t remember your name in 5, 4, 3, 2…and what’s your name again? Available as a button or fridge magnet.


Can’t Remember Your Name Pin, $2.99 

Can’t Remember Your Name Magnet, $3.99 

7. Key Holder & Hook

I’m buying this one for myself because it’s so clever. The doorknob is for your bag or purse, and the key that goes into the lock is a cute accessory on your key ring. Classically simple and functional, just my style.

8. Secret Cash Of Stash

11. Bluetooth Key Ring

Compatible with Apple devices (sorry Android), this elegant key ring has bluetooth tracking embedded within. So when you lose your keys (or purse, ferret, whatever), simply activate the app and the little wooden beacon will beep. If you lose your phone, tap the alert button on the device and it’ll help you find your phone.

A single charge will last 2-4 weeks. Now if only you could remember to charge it…thankfully, they thought of that too. The key ring will beep when the battery runs low and it needs to re-juice.
