PC Magazine recently released several fun lists of holiday products including the 10 wackiest gifts for under $200. With loud police sirens, digital wine chillers and piggy banks, and a silver-plated joystick necklace, this list is sure to draw your interest and amusement.

SCOTTEVEST SeV Fleece 4.0 Jacket 1. For the Gadget Freak
SCOTTEVEST SeV Fleece 4.0 Jacket ($139.99)
Nothing says gadget-freak like the infamous SCOTTEVEST fleece which comes with 12 hidden pockets for your cell phone, pda, MP3 player, and camera. You can also run your headphone wires through hidden piping.

2. For the Heavy Sleeper
Snooze Patrol Police Siren Alarm Clock (~$12)
Wake up! Well, if you can’t, try this police siren alarm clock. Between the piercing siren and the flashing blue light, we’re guessing you’d wake up (unless you live in the city, in which case you’re used to these sounds).

3. For the Desperate Housewife
Sommelier’s Wine Chiller ($100)
This chiller will keep your wine at a perfect temperature as it comes with a database that will pick the best temperature based on the type of wine.

4. For the Compulsive Liar
Truth Machine ($59.98)
This great machine allegedly measures micro tremors in your vocal chords to determine if you’re telling the truth. Sounds like a reach and definitely wacky.

5. For the Cheap Wad
Pig E Bank Electronic Bank with LCD Screen ($14.99)
The 21st century kid needs a 21st century piggy bank. Yes, it’s shaped like a pig and has a coin slot, but this one comes with an LCD screen that tracks the total amount of money collected.

6. For the Music Lover Always on the Can
Atech iCarta ($99.99)
There are iPod docks for all kinds of situation, so we’re not surprised that someone finally came up with one for your toilet. This dock not only includes a built-in toilet paper holder it also features four moisture-free speakers.

7. For the Farsighted
Giant Universal Remote ($39.98)
If you know someone who struggles with the small buttons on a remote control, the Giant Universal Remote features huge buttons that are easy to read and light up when pressed.

8. For the Firestarter
Rechargeable LED Candles from Philips ($199.99)
Philips created these simple individual frosted glass LED candles as an alternative to real candles.

9. For the Husband Who Forgets Anniversaries
Lumi Pad from Tomy ($49)
If you really don’t want to forget something, write on this battery-powered 14-inch message board. Your message will glow for all to see. It’s a can’t miss.

10. For the Blingin’ Gamer

The only thing cooler than bling is geek bling. This one speaks for itself.
