One of the best parts about the holiday season is all the precious leftovers. A bite of stuffing here, a slice of pie there, the remnants of Sunday football chili: These are the most glorious food stretches of the year. Our only concern: owning enough vessels to pack it all safely away. Once the tupperware is taken up, we often move on to cling wrap—a product that doesn't always do the trick and also poses myriad environmental issues.
In recent years, eco-friendly items have cropped up to tackle the single-use plastic problem. But while brands like Stasher are doing an admirable job, they can also be pricey, tough to clean, and geared more toward toting food on-the-go than keeping stuff fresh in the fridge. That's where this set of 12 reusable silicone lids comes in: Spanning from 2.5 to 8.2 inches in diameter, they stretch to fit over the tops of cans, mixing bowls, stock pots, plates, old tupperware—you name it. Right now, they're also 59% off the regular price of $24.99, a.k.a. only $10.14. (Compare that to what you usually spend over the holidays on Saran wrap.)

- This set comes with 12 silicone lids in six sizes as well as a stainless steel drinking straw. Two drawstring snack bags are also included, as is an emailed PDF booklet of smoothie recipes—but this recommendation is really all about the lids.
- The silicone lids stretch over the top of different vessels and stick to the side to keep food fresh.
- They're dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe.
Amazon reviewers are generally pretty thrilled with these things, giving the lids an average rating of 4 stars. As one person put it: "Can't find the lid to your Tupperware.... Don't have a lid to that bowl.... Need to use a mixing bowl ... Making pizza crust from scratch and it needs to rise.... These are awesome! They have a good amount of stretch and they wash easily! I also love that they take up so little space to store! Who needs lids to your Rubbermaid/ Tupperware/ Walmart containers when you have these!!!!" Frankly, we couldn't have put it better ourselves.
