While advertising paints the picture of a perfect Christmas of looking outside and finding a new car in the driveway with a bow on top, the reality is likely somewhat different. For most families, a more realistic scene is a room littered with paper and empty boxes. Many people struggle finding the perfect gift for that hard-to-please person on their list, and now a list of unique holiday gifts has been assembled. Some of the unusual possibilities in 2012 included, a barking door alarm to scare away intruders, a can of air from one of several popular tourist destinations around the world, or a pair of knee socks that look like Superman’s footwear from the movies. Other novelty items include a toaster that puts the logo of a favorite football team on each piece of toast, or even pink footie pajamas including a hood and ears designed for adults. Each of the specialty gift items are designed to provide the gift giver with a sense of satisfaction and the assurance that their gift might be a little more memorable among all the things their friends and family receive this Christmas.—Jim L.
