Terrier Tech: Holiday Gift Ideas

Five cool presents, all under $30


’Tis the season to be jolly, but that doesn’t mean you have to be broke. “Terrier Tech” presents five cool gadgets that sell for under $30 and can be ordered with an iPhone while walking to class.

  • Nordic Grip Mini ($14.29 from Firebox)

    Walk the streets with confidence with these slip-on bands that grip into ice and snow.

  • Airzooka ($8.99 on ThinkGeek)

    Can You Imagine’s Airzooka is a cannon that shoots puffs of air as far as 20 feet. Good for kids, bad for nervous pets.

  • Cardboard Deer Bust (Starting at $14.49 at Perpetual Kid)

    No animals were harmed in the production of these antlers of folly. They come in three sizes and, for non-ENG students, are numbered for easy assembly.

  • R2D2 Lunch Bag ($19.99 at ThinkGeek)

    With Disney’s acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, your lunch just got a new level of trademark protection with the R2D2 lunch bag by Thermos. Yes, with authentic beeps and whoops.

  • Mini Pie Maker ($25.99 at Target)

    Bake mini pies—four of them at a time—in as little as 10 minutes with the Mini Pie Maker from Sunbeam. They’re cute, and tasty.

    I can’t do it with a puppet watching either.
