Suggested by Gail Orsillo of Lynnwood, Wash.

Here, at long last, is a gift that communicates the heartfelt holiday message: ``From the back, with your shirt off, you look like a yeti.''

The War Hammer is a plastic handle designed to hold a razor so that a man can shave his own back hair. This product comes with detailed instructions for use, as well as this Safety Note: ``Wear thick pants, shorts, or a thick towel and eye protection when using this product.''

No, we don't know why you would need thick pants, and we don't want to know. All we know is that these days bodily hair is ''out,'' which is unfortunate since many men tend to sprout hair from everywhere except their heads. They are regular hair farms. If you're a lady who's involved with such an individual, he will surely be thrilled to receive a War Hammer from you this holiday season, along with a romantic note along the lines of, ``This grooming aid will make you less repellent to me.''
