  • Ow.

  • Do cookies really get that hard after leaving them out for one night?

  • Time to get the bread.

  • Hey guys!

  • It's Rachel.

  • Well, it's 2:00 A.M. Rachel.

  • It's a little different than 2:00 P.M. Rachel,

  • but still Rachel.

  • So I'm currently having a giveaway

  • where I give away this MacBook Air and a Hoverboard.

  • The only rule for this giveaway that you must be subscribed.

  • That's the only rule, because I just want

  • to give back to my subscribers.

  • And this giveaway ends on December 27,

  • so find out if you won on that date.

  • Also, let's see if we can get this video to 3,000 likes.

  • And comment down below which one of these weird Christmas life

  • hacks you like the most.

  • OK.

  • Let's get on with the video.

  • Life hack number one.

  • You see this lovely kind of Christmas tree that I got going on here?

  • Well, this is a problem that I'm pretty sure everyone has.

  • See these lights?

  • They are not on.

  • And they are plugged in.

  • See?

  • It's not like they're not on because they're all broken.

  • I know that they all work because

  • I bought these yesterday.

  • The problem at hand is one of these bulbs are missing.

  • And if you have a tree that's bigger than this,

  • it's going to take a very long time

  • to go through every single light to figure out which light's missing.

  • So if you want to figure out which light bulb is missing out of all of these,

  • of all of these, all you've got to do

  • is just take this volt detector.

  • And just scan over the areas, and then it

  • will beep when there is voltage.

  • But when there's no voltage, it will stop beeping.

  • So you know the general area of where it stops.

  • Because even if there's a missing light,

  • the rest of the lights still have voltage in them.

  • It's just the ones that come after the missing light that

  • don't have voltage in them.

  • And you can literally get this from any hardware store for $6

  • and use it every year to figure out

  • which light is the broken one.

  • And then to fix a light bulb, if you don't physically

  • have a new light bulb, just unplug everything,

  • and then take a piece of aluminum foil

  • and shape it into kind of an oval shape,

  • and press it deep into little socket for the bulb.

  • You just need the two metal pieces

  • on the inside of the bulb to be connected.

  • And the aluminum foil will connect them.

  • Just turn on the light and then all the lights will turn on.

  • If you like giving presents but you suck at wrapping,

  • to the point where every single time

  • you give someone a gift you have to literally apologize

  • for the way you wrapped the gift-- I got you a gift,

  • but I'm really sorry.

  • The wrapping's terrible.

  • I'm not good at wrapping.

  • That's you.

  • That's literally you.

  • Just wrap it like a Hershey Kiss.

  • All you need is a sheet of aluminum foil.

  • And then take a sheet of tissue paper

  • and just completely crumble up the gift in the tissue paper.

  • And then wrap the aluminum foil up, and then just kind of twist it.

  • And then you also have to write a little card.

  • So cut a strip of white paper out,

  • and then write whatever you want on the card.

  • And then open up the foil on the top.

  • And put the little card in, and then twist it.

  • And you have a little Hershey Kiss.

  • And you can literally do this with any item.

  • So here I'll do it with a square box.

  • Here I'll do it with literally a blow dryer.

  • See, it doesn't matter how ugly it is,

  • because they'll think it's supposed to look like that.

  • And it is the easiest thing ever.

  • This was a square box.

  • These were lip glosses.

  • This is a blow dryer.

  • You literally turn anything into a Hershey Kiss.

  • If you live in a small apartment or somewhere that just doesn't

  • have a fireplace, and you want to make a fireplace,

  • just find a bunch of boxes.

  • And just place them like this.

  • One on top of the other here.

  • Here, and one right here, but tape it up.

  • Now you have to cover it with plain white paper.

  • You could use tape or glue, but I found this adhesive spray.

  • So just spray the glue on, and just put pieces of paper

  • over it so you can cover it up completely.

  • And then take some red brick colored paper and cut out brick

  • sized pieces of paper.

  • And then glue those on every other one like this.

  • Kind of like in the shape of a brick.

  • And if some pieces don't fit,

  • just cut it off or glue it to the side.

  • And you're done.

  • And now you've got a cute little portable fireplace

  • for apartments and stuff.

  • You can hang your stockings and put some candles up.

  • If you want to have a fire behind it,

  • you can make this projector.

  • You just need a plain shoe box and a magnifying glass.

  • So just trace the magnifying glass

  • to see where you need to cut, and cut that part of the shoe

  • box out from the front side.

  • And then just cut off the piece of the magnifying glass that's a stick,

  • and then tape the regular circular part

  • of the magnifying glass on.

  • And then just take your cell phone

  • and find a YouTube video or something of a fireplace.

  • And then put it in the center of the box

  • and turn off the lights.

  • Just make sure that the video itself is upside down.

  • And it'll project the fireplace onto the fireplace.

  • And you can literally play whatever you want on it.

  • Did you get me my present yet?

  • See, this is a perfect situation where

  • if you didn't get a present, you could find out exactly what

  • she wants right now, by just saying, yeah, I did, actually.

  • It's like literally the best present

  • you're ever going to get.

  • Wait.

  • What is it?

  • And then when they say that, just say,

  • I'm not going to tell you.

  • But if you guess it, then I'll tell you.

  • And now they're going to start guessing every single gift that they've ever wanted.

  • And now you won't get them a bad Christmas gift.

  • A mountain bike.

  • The new OPI nail polish.

  • MAC lipstick.

  • It's the dream.

  • Ow.

  • If your Christmas cookies are really hard,

  • just because you left them out or you overcooked them

  • just a bit, all you need to do is put

  • the cookies in a Ziploc bag.

  • And then take bread.

  • Yeah, bread.

  • And then break up the pieces of bread

  • and put them in the Ziploc bag with it.

  • The cookies are going to soak up all the moisture from the bread.

  • And then after a couple of hours,

  • or overnight I just left it, cookies will literally be soft.

  • So basically you just got to get bread near your cookies

  • and they'll become soft.

  • I don't know many people deal with this,

  • but if you get tree sap anywhere on your body,

  • a way to get it off is to just take toothpaste and

  • just wipe it on the tree sap.

  • I kid you not, it comes off right away.

  • Oh, lovely.

  • So I hope you guys enjoyed this video.

  • OK.

  • I love you guys so much.

  • Bye!

  • I've been using the same exact wording for the past like two years.
