9 last-minute gifts that we actually want

The Week's staff shares some 11th hour gift ideas for under $35

Marshmallows

1. Whiskey stones with a twist

I have my father to thank for turning me into a scotch snob, but unlike the Elder Eberspacher, I prefer my single malts light on the rocks. For the nights when even one cube feels like overkill, these granite chillers are clutch. With traditional whiskey stones, you need to toss in three or four to get the cooling effect. Not only are these granite versions far prettier, it just takes one and you're ready to sit back and sip. ($34; Amazon) — Sarah Eberspacher

2. Cards Against Humanity

If you loved playing Apples to Apples as a kid, then you're going to quickly become obsessed with the R-rated version of it, Cards Against Humanity. Answer "How did my last relationship end?" with an array of colorful, nonsensical, dirty responses, from "cheap aliens" to "half-assed foreplay." There's nothing better to play when you're snowed in for a weekend. ($25; Amazon) — Emily Shire

3. Instagram marshmallows

This company in England will put your Instagram photos on marshmallows. You choose nine, and if you're lucky enough to live in Europe or North America, they send you a box of 'em. It's a good gift to receive...then make disappear. ($20; boomf.com) — Nikkitha Bakshani

4. Raspberry Pi

People are using the Pi to control all kinds of things — media centers, musical instruments, robotics, weather balloons, prosthetics. Yes, I want a computer. And I can get a tiny one for under $30. ($29; adafruit.com) — John Aziz
