The ultimate in practical gifts, but with a fun twist. Everybody could use duct tape at some point, and this roll is great not just for fixing stuff but also for art projects or decorating. And it’s cheap at just under $6 bucks, so it’s a nice stocking stuffer that sure to leave a smile.

Bacon flavored candy that look like peppermints. Red and white for the Christmas theme. Could also be sprinkled in a stocking and disguised as peppermints for a little prank!
5) Sphere Ice Cube Tray – $7.30
This is the sort of little gift that seems like a novelty, but pays dividends even years later.

8) Doom Crystal skull shotglass – $10.64
A sweet shotglass that lets the drink form into the shape of a skull. Very cool for colored licquor and a definite convesration piece. Great for the office Christmas party! We’re not sure why it’s called “Doom”, because it seems to bode well for us: good times are coming when you break this thing out!
9) Gallium – the metal that melts in your hands – $15.67
Amaze co-workers, family and friends with this Terminator 2-like metal. The melting point is the temperature of the human body, so by holding it, it melts in your hand. The cool thing is you can keep reusing it, letting it solidify and melt again.

Fun and cheap. Great for guys to have something to shoot for :-p Also good for the home or work bathroom where guys have a tendency to be off target.

You velcro a lightsaber onto your thumb and start thumb wrestling. You can pick from seven different game board background to fight on – different places in the Star Wars universe.

Pretty simple but it’s a fun mug to gift someone with and great for a white elephant item! we could see everyone wanting it and stealing it from other people.
15) Cheap Pub Crawl Santa Suit – $10.30
A more or less disposable Santa suit/costume that will do the job for a day. Great for wearing to that office Christmas party or bar crawl. While it might fall apart or get torn during your bar hopping, it’s CHEAP and includes the whole shebang: hat, white beard, pants, jacket and belt. Can’t beat it for a one-time use Santa suit.
