This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Every year, you give a bunch of gifts to people, half knowing that it's all for show. Nobody's actually going to use your hand-made bottle opener. It's the thought that counts, and they know that, but it would also be nice to actually get something useful for the holidays every once in a while. This year, shock everyone by giving something that they'll actually incorporate into their everyday lives! We've got some great ideas. Check them out:
