Bulgari Black eau de toilette: $77
Ordinarily, we shy away from giving fragrance as a gift -- but then, Bulgari Black is no ordinary fragrance. It's one of the few truly unisex scents on the market, blending vanilla, black tea, and other ingredients into a very distinctive package. Perhaps best is the top note (the first few minutes of the fragrance) when Black smells just the tiniest bit like fresh, clean rubber, which is echoed in the rubber-encased bottle. Fragrance expert Luca Turin has called it one of the best in production -- and who are we to argue?
Wagan EL2022 Ionic Air Purifier: from $9.71
Then again, maybe you know someone who doesn't enjoy fragrance of any kind. For them, the Wagan Ionic Air Purifier might be just the ticket. It plugs directly into a car's cigarette lighter and immediately begins attacking bacteria, pollen, dust, and stubborn odors. Best of all: no filter required.
Key chains: Dr. Who, Star Wars, Batman, and more from $2.00
At first glance, a key chain might seem like a silly gift, but look again. Think Geek has a range of options -- some aimed at loud, proud sci-fi nerds (like the Dr. Who options pictured), while others are more practical, offering amenities like special tools, headphone splitters, and even a miniature speaker. We'll take the Batman version please, which comes complete with an emergency signal light.
TuneIn Radio app: free - $.99
Ditch those preconceptions, folks: TuneIn is no ordinary internet radio app. For starters, it works like a real radio, allowing you to listen to local stations in your neck of the woods or around the globe. It also works on a range of devices, including iPhones, iPads, Androids, Blackberries, Windows, GoogleTV, and more. The Pro version let users record, pause, and rewind any station as they're listening -- and they can even use the built-in timer to record their favorite shows, then listen to them later. Not too shabby for 99 cents.
