FOR PHONE ADDICTS
For the friend who constantly drains their battery or forgets their charger, there’s this sleek, portable charger. The Anker PowerCore+ mini is small enough to fit in a clutch, powerful enough to keep every app running, pretty enough to display out in the open.

A fruit tree sapling is a really beautiful gift for anyone with a backyard. Like fine leather and fine rugs, it grows more valuable with time – but unlike fine furniture, it doesn’t cost very much in the beginning. Check your climate zones, and bring your loved ones a fruit tree that will feed their families and brighten up their yard for years to come.
No link, but many young fruit trees are available for less than $20 at local garden centers and farmer’s markets.
Similar to a lottery ticket but far prettier, this map lets the owner scratch off every new country they visit. It’s a great conversation pieces and a visual motivator for anyone with wanderlust.
