4. NFL Deluxe Electric Football Game
Speaking of nostalgia, here is a super-fun old-school football game with a modern twist.

You can also use the app for tournament play. The game has been upgrade with players who wear rubber “cleats” that let you control their direction and speed on the upgraded metal turf. Hopefully it will stop the player from going in circles like when I was a kid.
5. Tile Mate
Do you always forget where you put something, like your house and car keys? Your phone? Now you can find them without the swearing! Use your smartphone to make your Tile Mate ring when it’s nearby, but out of sight. Or maybe it’s your phone that’s missing? Double press the Tile button on your Tile Mate and make your phone ring, even when it’s on silent. The perfect gift for that someone special who sometimes misplaces everything.
