During the holiday season, it’s hard to find unique, fun gifts for friends and family. Let’s be real: That discounted set of gingerbread-scented candles is just going to march its way to the trash after you’re gone.

All you need is a high-powered PC with a fast processor and a camera (and maybe have a few extra eggs on deck for any of the inevitable kitchen emergencies).
