10 Gifts for the Left-Handers in Your Life

It's International Left-Handers Day — let your left-hander friends know how cool they are with a cute gift.

I remember growing up with my left-handed bestie and how she dealt with the inconveniences — pencil smudge marks all over her hands, difficulty cutting with scissors and sitting in a desk all day meant for a right-handed kid. 

Even though it may be inconvenient, there are advantages, too! Left-handers are known to have higher IQs, have the advantage while playing sports and they only make up about 10 percent of the world's population, which makes them super-special! You most likely know a left-hander or two, so give them a gift that let's them know how cool it is to be left-handed.
