Feeling passive-aggressive about someone who has a birthday coming up? Looking to surprise someone not-so-special in your life? Forced into a gift exchange by peer pressure? How about something to throw into the Yankee Swap that will likely show up again next year…and the next year…and the year after that…

Have no fear, here are some truly pointless products that you can give to show someone just how little you care. Watch their faces as they open them and try to find someway to thank you that doesn’t sound totally ungrateful.
