Gift: Magnetic Paint & Neodymium Magnets
Price: $40

This is something we discovered a few month ago from our upstairs neighbors. It can TRANSFORM any friend's wall, at home or at the office. It's a DIY project, but totally unique, and something we would love to receive because the elements are obscure.

The first element is Magic Wall Magnetic Paint, which you paint on your wall and then paint over it with any color you like. The result is a highly magnetic layer that STRONGLY holds magnets.

The second element is 1/4 x 1/2 Neodymium Cylinder Magnets from this eBay store. These strong little suckers are smooth and cylindrical and look like little nubbins sticking into your wall.
