Stop what you’re doing – I have found the perfect gift for every woman on your shopping list this holiday season. Well, if she carries a purse, she’s going to love this. Ask any woman and she can tell you about the struggle to find things in her handbag. Keys sink to the bottom, hand cream disappears altogether and don’t ask me what happens to my phone once I toss it into my bag. I can’t tell you the number of times that, in a complete panic, I’ve told my husband to immediately turn the car around because I can’t find my phone. He calmly tells me to look again and sure enough, it’s always in there, fathoms below the surface. RELATED: Add These 8 Items to Your Toiletry Bag When You Travel

I don’t know what it is but my bag is like a black hole that swallows whole everything that goes in. Admittedly, my bag is generally a hot mess between my own items and all the stuff I cart around for my kids, namely hand sanitizer, wipes, snacks, toys and Band-Aids, oh-so-many Band-Aids.

However, apparently I’m not the only one whose bag is a ravenous monster. And it turns out, what we all need is a handbag illuminator. How … illuminating!

SOI: The Original Handbag Light is activated by motion and will light up the interior of your bag to help you find whatever you’re looking for.

The light is made in Germany and according to the makers, “a study shows that on average, a woman spends 76 days of her life searching in her bag.” It’s funny how that sounds completely exaggerated and 100% plausible, all at the same time.

I love the sleek design of the SOI handbag light – it’s smooth and rounded and feels like a perfect pebble rock in your hands. It has no buttons or switches and turns on and off automatically when it senses your approaching hand. The light remains on for 10 seconds and activates again with the movement of your hand.

At just two inches across and weighing one ounce, it’s tiny and fits in the palm of your hand. The bright glow is enough to illuminate large tote bags but the size is small enough to fit into a clutch evening bag.

While this light is intended to light up deep, dark cavernous handbags, it can really be used anywhere as a bedside light and because it’s so small and portable, it’s perfect for travel. Use it inside your travel backpack, on your hotel night table or to read a restaurant menu. Buy SOI: The Original Handbag Light here on Amazon.
