Remember when Drew Carey looked like this pillow? Maybe that's why I think it's funny and adorable. Who's the Zooey Deschanel in your life? She might love this.

These came out for Christmas 2010, and it's still a great gift. Hostesses will appreciate it because the cubes take up little space and engage players of all ages. For partygoers, you can play this at all stages of...liquid happiness.

Five electronic squares (each with its own on/off switch) wirelessly sync to know when they've spelled words and add up your score. Three different games and they're all fun. (I got this one last year!)
