Say what you will about 2017 (or just bottle it up until you explode in a fit of rage during Christmas dinner, like a normal person), you have to admit that it was great for doodads and knick knacks. And right now, you can get some of our favorite products of the year for way less than what they're supposed to be. And with coupon code BESTOF17, you can take an extra 17 percent off of any of them.

Con your way into Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters (or just impress your friends) with this wrist-mounted fireball shooter.

Just connect the turntable to your computer with the USB cable, and let the exclusive software guide you through the steps. (Step 1: Do not insert the record into the CD drive.) Plus, you can use the built-in 1/8" auxiliary input to convert from other audio sources like cassettes. Get it here for $65.99.

Cultivating a fun, memorable personality for the office takes a lot of work, but having the best desk toys is easy.
