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.
Who doesn't want a gift that requires work? This kit provides everything needed to grow four different varieties of the Bonsai tree, including seeds, soil, biodegradable plant pots, plant markers and a blessed instruction manual. It could end up being a beautiful conversation piece....if you actually manage to get it to grow.
