We all have a friend who’s a hopeless romantic. He has his dream wedding planned down to the music choice, and he sits at bars and rants about all his missed opportunities to find love. Your millennial friend who puts way too much effort into his online dating profile would get a kick out of Modern Romance. In his 2015 book, Ansari details how romance is changing in the current era — he explores how technology has expanded our relationship options more than any point in history. It’s in-depth, introspective and funny.

3. Grilled Cheese Maker
This is no laughing matter.

He’s starving and needs something simple but filling to eat — he needs a grilled cheese sandwich. This Proctor Silex Deluxe Sandwich Maker is nonstick and versatile. He can make pizza pockets, hot sandwiches, or whatever he’s feeling/can afford.
