Putting the Fun in Functional

Go ahead and be the person who buys gifts that others wouldn't necessarily think of buying for themselves (but once they own them, they can't live without them).

Everyone needs a Microplane Kitchen Grater/Zester. Watch your fingers, as it is sharp. But it works brilliantly.

I think I may have to pick up one of these jammies during my Christmas shopping this year, as I'm tired of schlepping around clanking wine bottles. Seems like the sort of useful gift anyone would appreciate. Well, anyone who frequently buys wine for him/herself or others and needs to tote it around.

While we're on the wine kick here, how about the Metrokane Rabbit Wine Opener? Admittedly, I only own a knockoff version, but even the knockoff works like a dream (and was free!), so I can highly recommend it. It makes opening wine bottles so easy and you look all technologically advanced while doing it.

And last but certainly not least, get someone you love the Aerolatte Milk Frother. Seems unnecessary, I know. But he or she will adore it. Hell, they should really make a hip holster for it.
