This beer bottle puzzle is a novelty gift that people will actually use

It’s a pretty solid way to start the night.

If you’re one of those people who gets super paranoid about the possibility of people returning your gifts, we feel you.

The plot especially thickens when you don’t know someone really well and still somehow have to make their special day marginally better with a present. The typical adult quick fix gift is alcohol, but if you want to buy something a little more outside the box, you don’t have to venture too far.

The beer bottle puzzle holds someone’s 12 ounce beer (or whatever they sell in bottles these days) captive until they can solve it. It’s simple and aesthetically pleasing enough to blend in at any type of get together – unlike most of the hideous clothes well-meaning relatives bought you for Christmas.

Instructions on how to secure the bottle inside of the puzzle are provided, but you’re on your own from there. That being said, it’s probably best to play this as close the beginning of the night as possible.

For $19.50, you don’t even have to splurge on your casual friends to make them love you forever.
