Sold in a crate of six, Queen Victoria pineapples are about the size of pears. They're especially fragrant and flavorful, and they don't need to be cored. Buy it at Melissa's.

3. Kikkerland Crab Multitool ($20)

This multitool might not outlast a Leatherman, but it's all you need for a picnic or a day at the beach. Its beechwood body houses a knife, bottle opener, screwdriver, can opener, saw, and scissors. Buy it at Amazon.

4. Fredericks & Mae Moon Dominoes ($38)

A step up from regular dominoes — or a pack of cards — this attractive set is cut from Baltic birch and depicts the phases of the moon. Buy it at Fredericks & Mae.

5. Planet Lollipops ($26 for 10)

"Too far-out to be relegated to hiding inside a gift box," these gorgeous candies belong in every stocking in the house, says Real Simple. Each full set includes the sun, the eight planets, and Pluto, in flavors like blackberry, mango, and key lime. Buy it at Amazon.

6. Parabellum Cash & Carry Wallet ($100)
