Anki Overdrive Starter Kit - $120

For the kid in your life (big or small, I have one of the original Anki Drive kits myself :-) ), Anki has differentiated itself by bringing cutting edge software and robotics technology to the toy market. Anki's proprietary platform is part slot-car racing, part video game. The system lets you drive and control your car entirely from your smartphone, including lane changes, speed changes, defenses, and on-board weapons systems to blow the other cars off the track!

This version is an upgrade from the original and provides different track configuration options, as well as allowing the ability to purchase additional accessories and extensions for more gameplay options.

Cards Against Humanity - $25

Billed as "A party game for horrible people," anybody that's played can tell you this game lives up to its reputation. Cards Against Humanity has reached legendary status, starting as a simple Kickstarter project that received a modest $15,000+ in funding, the game has since generated well over 8 figures in revenue for the 8 co-creators, with very few expenses to eat into the profits. In fact, co-creator Max Temkin told Bloomberg in 2014, "None of us has to have a job for a very long time."

Even more famously, CAH has created such a devoted community around their product that they were able to sell 30,000 boxes of actual shit at $6 each. Yes, you read that right. They quite literally sold $180,000 worth of "bullshit." If that's not enough to get you to buy this game, I'm not sure what is.

GoPro Hero4 Silver - $340

Let's be honest, there aren't many people that couldn't use a GoPro. They're ridiculously fun, easy to use, and the Hero4 finally includes an LCD screen so you can actually see what it is you're filming! I'll skip the extensive description on this one because unless you've been living under a rock the past 5 years, you already know what a GoPro is. The Silver edition is pricey as GoPro's go, so if you can do without the bells and whistles it provides, try going with the $199 Hero4 Session instead.

Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition - $20

Following in the footsteps of Cards Against Humanity, the folks behind Exploding Kittens raised over $8.7 million from nearly 220,000 backers earlier this year on Kickstarter. At this time, they still hold the record for the most backers of any Kickstarter project in history - by a significant margin. The version linked here is the NSFW (not safe for work) edition, but you can get the completely kid-friendly pack here.

LuckLED MagicPrime Laser Christmas Lights

This is the perfect gift for that friend, relative, or neighbor that's too lazy to put up Christmas decordations! This is as "set-it-and-forget-it" as they come, simply plug it in, stick it in the yard, aim it at the house, and boom - instant light show! The light comes with a wireless remote and a built-in timer to make it even easier. The only thing it's missing is a robot butler to set itself up and bring you a beer.
