We love cashmere sweaters and velvety hand lotion just as much as the next girl, but sometimes there’s nothing better than a clever kitchen gadget. Sure, these gifts are quirky. But they’re also surprisingly useful and guaranteed to put a smile on the face of just about any recipient (except for maybe 13-year-old Kevin).
