Let's get this out of the way: dental care has never been what we'd call "fun," but the Boka toothbrush, along with refreshing, mint-infused toothpaste and floss, might actually deserve the adjective. An activated charcoal head that operates at 30,000 vibrations per minute does all of the heavy lifting (aka cleaning your teeth and reducing bacteria growth) for you, while soft bristles help you avoid pressing too hard, which can lead to recessed gums. Need more to chew on? One charge atop a magnetic docking station lasts 25 days.
Sitting hunched over a laptop all day can be very hard on the body, especially if your mom's not getting any breaks to get up for a walk.

This, of course, means there much better be a little box somewhere under the tree consisting of an unusual precious gem or automobile keys!
