Give a gift that’s fit for James Bond. The security fingerprint reader makes it possible to use your fingerprint as a password. It’s used to prevent unauthorized access to computer logins and files. Plus, it has a way of making people feel like they’re pretty important. (Amazon, $13)

12. Two-pocket wrist wallet

This two-pocket wrist wallet is just the right size to hold essential items you need while running around. It’s perfect for travel or exercise. The pockets zip and are large enough to hold your cell phone, earbuds, credit cards, cash and car keys. And, since you wear it on your wrist, it’s easily accessible — much easier than those cell phone holders you wear on your arm. (Komando, $16)

13. MirrorBook compact pocket mirror
