How could this not be on someone's top wish list?
The Rechargeable Mini Massager (left, $25) is an adorable device in an R2D2 kinda way. On the other hand, it gives better massages than most robots. The Mini Massager is a handheld device with four vibrating feet that light up when the unit is turned on. The Mini Massager has a built-in rechargeable battery, and it sits on the charging base when not in use.

Have you always wanted to be able to travel through time? Do you just love the Back to the Future movies? I mean, who doesn't? Well, I don't have a time machine to offer you, unfortunately (maybe next Christmas). But I have something that is sort of close to as cool. Maybe.
It's a replica of the famous Flux Capacitor from Back to the Future, the Y-shaped device that made time travel possible. Well, at least in the movies. Now, for a mere $220, you can have one of your own, complete with hastily-applied labels and real working lights. Now all you need is a DeLorean and you'll be halfway there.
Full-on geekdom. I love it! Find it here: http://www.threadless.com/submission/139946/I_9829_New_York
The G-Tech Smart Fabric Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard ($80) is a roll-up travel keyboard for all your Bluetooth devices. The fabric keyboard is as big as a laptop's keyboard, so you can just laugh at your friends trying to poke out a message on their miniscule smartphones, YKWIM?
Made from discarded truck tarps, these bags are great from an environmental perspective; plus, they seem to bring prerequisite "street-cred" to fledgling designers and nerds everywhere.
This wireless memory card automatically uploads images from your camera to your computer, or to the web.
It's the kind of thing that would have led to a beating in high-school, but you have to dig these items made from scrap computers and electronics. Nicola Harper makes them in Edmonton. You can check out more of her stuff here: www.acornstudios.ca
