3. Fondue for Two
Who doesn’t love dipping random foods into a pool of melted cheese or chocolate?! You may think this is an expensive gift (and you can definitely pretend not to brag about how much money you spent), but Hudson’s Bay is selling this cute white fondue pot for only $11.99!

4. A Yacht
Go all out this Christmas and get your favourite person what they’ve always dreamt of: a yacht. Well, a fancy model yacht that can sit on their desks until they win the lottery and can replace it with an actual boat (one can dream). This is a motivational gift, designed to inspire the receiver to get off his or her butt and work a little harder to enjoy the finer things in life. Consider it the perfect way to inspire your brother to move out of your mom’s basement!
