Suggested by Bill Hudgins of Nashville

These days almost everybody carries a lot of gadgets — cellphones, iPads, iPods, electric nostril trimmers, Tasers, etc. Women can carry these gadgets in their purses, but men cannot carry purses unless they are willing to run the risk of appearing — not that there is anything wrong with it — French.

That’s why the gadget-owning man on your holiday list will love this gadget holster, which is extremely masculine while at the same time being very manly. It’s made of rugged studly black military/espionage/kung fu/Jedi Knight material. It has two straps, so you can strap it to your waist AND your thigh, which means that you will not lose your gadgets even in hand-to-hand combat. We know for a fact that Mr. Mike Tyson wears one of these and never takes it off, even in the shower. We have photographs.

  • PERFECT POLLY

    You've probably seen the TV commercials for Perfect Polly, the battery-operated pretend parakeet manufactured in China from genuine plastic.

  • PRISM GLASSES

    These are special glasses that use an amazing scientific principle — possibly photosynthesis — to bend light beams at a 90-degree angle. This means that when you put these glasses on, instead of seeing what's in front of you, you're actually looking straight down.

  • CHICKEN BRASSIERE

    If you are not putting a brassiere on your hen (or self-mutilating parrot) (which would be a good name for a rock band) you could very well be contributing to its DEATH.
