Perhaps no gift you give this season will be as fraught with so much tension as the one for your home or apartment's caretaker (be it a super, custodian, or handyman). Get the formula wrong and you're out of luck the next time the heat goes out at midnight. Luckily, there is a near-universal fix: jerky. While other tenants are giving your deli-coffee preferring guy a useless Starbucks gift card, you can present him with the gift of perfectly marinated, dried, flavored, and textured meats. Get him a 2-ounce pack of the Original, Southwestern, Mongolian, and Pho', and for less than 50 bucks you can guarantee that no leak goes unrepaired. [$9 each; sideprojectjerky.com]
