Whether 'there's nothing they need' or they 'like everything,' we all have that one person that is utterly impossible to shop for. Like the good procrastinators we are, we push it off until the last possible second through the promise of Amazon Prime and collective denial.

Everyone has lost a pair of keys at least once (a day). This tiny Bluetooth tracker pairs with your smartphone and makes finding anything less strenuous than the search for the Holy Grail. Its app can make the device let out a loud tune when the sought out object is in range. If you're the type to constantly leave your keys at work, the app monitors the last time it was near your Tile Mate, relieving your panic much faster. Enjoy that subway ride back.

For those inclined to test their taste buds, hot sauce could make Christmas merrier, if not inflamed. This kit from Ass Kickin' brand promises to live up to its namesake, challenging you to finish 12 of its most popular sauces, ranging from mild to "Kick Yo' Ass Hot!" Consider that glass of water at the finish line your reward.
There's nothing quite like getting drunk 30,000 feet in the air. With a recipe card, bar spoon, 1/2 oz. jigger, and tonic syrup included, the Carry Kit provides everything you need for the classiest of drunken flights, minus the alcohol (sorry). Just hope the receiver doesn't think this gift isn't some sort of prelude to a family vacation.
