    Fauxballs

    I’m buying Snowtime Anytime Snowballs for my brother, Dean, who likes to pelt me with snowballs but doesn’t like the cold. They’re made from soft, dry fabric, so if he beans me with one, it won’t hurt. $19.99 for 20, thinkgeek.com

    Bluetooth Gloves

    For my sister Adrienne—who’s convinced she doesn’t look foolish talking aloud on her hands-free phone—I’m getting these Bluetooth Handset Gloves. She’ll seem even wackier talking into her fingers. $59.99 to $99.99, thinkgeek.com
