Tired of the old holiday standbys? TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas shares some unique presents that are sure to be a hit with those on your list.

Year-round robe

If you're looking for a great gift that friends and family can enjoy long past the holiday season, look no further than the Omni-Robe, which features a four-way convertible style.  Plush and cozy for the winter season, cleverly concealed zippers allow the robe's arms to slip off and length to be shortened come spring ($99.95; omnirobe.com).

Double-duty beauty

Sparkly and smart, Tarte's limited-edition makeup sets offer two gifts in one. Their "Starlet" mirrored vanity chest comes chock full of cosmetics and doubles as a jewelry box ($52; sephora.com).  For the gal on the go, Tarte's "Puttin' on the Glitz" clutch comes with interchangeable eye and lip palettes that snap into place  — there's even a crossbody strap for evenings out. ($48; tartecosmetics.com)  

Bucky balls

Forget the Rubik's Cube and Sudoku books of holidays past — there's a new addictive tabletop toy on the market! Buckyballs are a set of rare Earth magnetics that mesh together and can be molded into countless creations for hours of fun & stress relief. Perfect for coworkers, thumb-twiddling friends & tough-to-shop for teens ($24.95 & up; getbuckyballs.com)
