Funny gifts for the clean freak
Everybody knows a clean freak. That one friend who makes you feel uncomfortable about the stain in your carpet or dirty dishes in the sink, but we still love them anyway. This holiday, give the clean freak you love a giggle with these practical but comical gifts.
The germ-advert are constantly scrubbing dishes, floors, counter tops and essentially any other surface a human could contact. These Glam Gloves (Amazon, $8) are the perfect gift to protect her hands from chapping and make her stylish while cleaning. Maybe get her a few pairs, because I'm sure she'll be tossing them after a few uses.
Despite the germ-killing power of the dishwasher, a neat freak can get a little anal retentive about sharing glassware. Being a little too organized doesn't mean having to skimp on style. These one-of-a-kind glasses (Uncommon Goods, $12) can be customized for every member of the family. Give the parents and each child their own special drinking glasses decorated with minimalist art. This is a much more fashionable alternative to those stickers on the back of the mini-van. (Amazon, $12)

Pick up a few so you can surprise your out-of-town guests with silly soap next time they drop by. (Amazon, $6)

Traveling can be a difficult time for the clean freak. They don't have their stockpile or cleaning supplies and have absolutely no idea when their hotel sheets were last changed. Although some of this mess is inevitable, by giving them this Violight Personal Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer (Amazon, $30) they can always make sure that their toothbrush is germ-free.
What would bring a neat freak more joy than finally having a way to keep her intimates separate from her other intimates?

She'll no longer have to dig through her drawers to find the perfect pair of panties, because it will all be immaculately displayed in front of her!
