The holidays are traditionally supposed to be spent with family and loved ones, but I realize not everyone is lucky enough to have people to be with on Christmas day. So if the part of my brain that deals with emotions hadn’t been re-appropriated for sarcasm, I’d probably feel kind of sad thinking about the poor soul who has to carry around a credit card-sized pop-up Christmas tree. When folded down it’s thin enough to carry in a wallet’s card slot, and when popped-up the magic of internal refraction and LEDs causes the tree to grow a festive green color. Now all you need is a pop-up cup of eggnog and your loneliest Christmas ever will be complete. $10 from Gadget.brando.com.
