Forget writing your own postcards. If you really want your sentiment to last, pick up a Carve Your Own Post Card ($12). The 4x6 wooden cards let you carve your messages into the surface with a sharp key or knife, letting you relive those days of professing your love in a tree trunk or classroom desk. Just don't forget the stamp.
Got a gift that's too good to give away in the box it came in? Fool your recipient with a Fake Gift Box from The Onion ($20/4-pack). This terrific collection of boxes for ridiculous fictitious products — we're particular fans of the Visor-ganizer — is sure to draw the ire of your loved ones, that is, before they realize they've been duped. Way better than actually having to buy a Chia Pet just for the box. [Thanks, Arik]
Wouldn't it be great to have an extra portable power source for your gadgets that didn't take up much space and was easy to charge? The Powerstick ($50) is a thumb drive-sized accessory that charges via the built-in USB connector and can provide extra juice for lots of different devices, including most cell phones, iPods, and others that charge via mini-USB.
