MaxFire Pandora Pro Folding Gamepad

When folded, it’s smaller than a roll of Scotch tape, yet this wee gamepad still packs a directional stick, “turbo” button for auto repeat, shoulder buttons, and vibration effects. Comes with a slick retractable USB cable, too. The James Bond of porta-pads! $19.99

Solio Charger

Only cave dwellers would pass up a charger/battery hybrid that soaks up the rays and turns them into portable power for charging cell phones, MP3 players, and any device that charges through a USB port (including the iPhone). $99.95

Bubble Wrap

For the loved one afflicted with mild obsessive-compulsive disorder, the Bubble Wrap keychain simulates the prodigiously satisfying experience of popping bubble wrap for hours on end. $8.99

USB Heated Shawl

The USB-powered Heated Shawl wraps around your arms and can be buttoned in the center, turning a frosty morning into a personal hot zone. She’ll love it. He’ll pretend not to, and use it in private. $28.95


By far the most lifelike and cuddly of all the domestic robots. The Pleo responds to touch, plays tug-of-war with you, and will even learn to do tricks… until the day comes when it and the Roomba rise up and take over. $349


When a gaming laptop kicks into fourth gear, you’re essentially roasting “the boys” over a spit. Belkin’s padded CushTop is the best laptop heat interceptor we’ve ever used; it’s comfy, cushy, and has a pocket for storing mice, manuals, or Fig Newtons. $34.99
