Aren’t we all a little sick of receiving holiday gifts that are completely useless and end up collecting dust in the junk drawer? Well, here’s a gift idea that’s extremely useful, but still an exciting product to unwrap, thanks to its sleek design and fun, bulbous shape.
Nokero‘s solar lights are perfect for camping, traveling, or everyday use in a poorly-lit apartment. The Huron N222 (pictured above) can charge a cell phone while it illuminates an entire room, while the Start N182 is compact enough to fit in your pocket (hello, stocking stuffer) but strong enough to light up a small space.

Coasters are definitely high on the list of “gifts for people who you don’t know what to give,” and if you’re like us, you’re always searching for sets that aren’t the standard square cloths or round pieces of wood. So, we’ve found the perfect coasters–not only are they unique and visually appealing, but they have a personal touch.
Neighborwoods Map Coasters were created by San Francisco graphic designer Aymie Spitzer, who has a passion for hand-lettered vernacular and antique maps. The cedar wood coasters celebrate the special neighborhoods of some of the country’s biggest urban sites, including Manhattan and Brooklyn.
