Just in time for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Blingsting Pepper Spray. It's a pepper-spray can housed in a sparkly, rhinestone key chain case that can be clipped to a bag, making it a traditional purse charm with a self-defense punch. "I thought if we made pepper spray cute, then girls would actually want to carry it," says cocreator Andi Atteberry, 33. Though Atteberry hopes buyers never have to use it, Blingsting's accessibility makes feeling safe easy. ($25; blingsting.myshopify.com)
