One Quirky Homesickness Reliever
This gift seems made for college students or anyone living a long way from home: Simply upload a photo to Pillowmob, choose a shape and fabric color and about three weeks later, a huggable, oversize face arrives at your doorstep. Any photo can be used, though pictures of people's pets, food or selfies are most common. For best results, the company recommends taking photos in natural light and making sure there are no shadows on your subject's face.
