Engineering a gingerbread house isn't particularly difficult, the catch is they're usually built around the holidays when you've got a million other things on your plate. That's why this all-in-one cookie cutter that produces all the parts you'll need to build a miniature gingerbread house—walls, roof, and all—is so clever, and necessary, this time of year.
Also, bite-size individual gingerbread houses? Where have you been all our lives? They're easier to build, easier to decorate, and without a doubt easier to transport. Six bucks for the cutter seems like a bargain if you're into the whole DIY gift thing and don't want to find yourself completely burnt out by the time the 25th rolls around. [Amazon via 7Gadgets]
