litteBits Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit: This IS the droid STEM kit you're looking for! littleBits' Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit allows your little Jedi (or Sith, we don't want to presume) to create their own droid from a galaxy far, far away. The kit comes with everything from batteries to decorative stickers, and an app that lets kids control their droid creation and teach it moves like head spins and self navigation. The Amazon sale price of $79 (down from $99.95) is the lowest the kit has sold far since its debut earlier this year.
At a certain point in the stressful holiday shopping madness, you may have to throw your mittened hands in the air and settle for getting less than great gifts for your friends and family to retain your last bit of sanity. That's usually where gift cards come in to save the day, largely thanks to their ubiquity and status as a borderline-acceptable gift. Better yet, dozens of restaurant chains further incentivize your mediocre gift giving by rolling out special gift card deals and bonuses just for the holidays.
