Stocking Stuffers Under $20

Posted December 24, 2008
Need some last-minute stocking stuffers for the dorks, overgrown boys, or actual men in your life? We can’t think of a better place to head than Restoration Hardware. You probably think of this chain, if you think of it at all, as a place to get pricey retro club chairs and such, but every holiday season it pulls out all the stops to stock dozens of awesomely cheap gadgets and toys, like the matchbox-size Mini Digital Camera shown here (currently $17.49, marked down from $25), the Secret Agent Walkie-Talkie Pen Set ($14.99, down from $22), the Talking Pedometer ($14.99, down from $22), and Laser-Guided Scissors ($17.49, down from $25), as well as battery-free nonsense like the twelve-part Ultimate Jokes on You Prank Kit ($16.49, down from $24), complete with squirt gum, snake-in-a-can, fake puke, and fart whistle. Because in this economy, you definitely shouldn’t have to overpay for a fart whistle.
