Murphy's law states that when you actually need a measuring tape, you won't find one at the ready. However, by gifting a surprisingly stylish rosewood tape measure to fit in a purse or briefcase, you'll make your friend prepared beyond measure for whatever life offers. Not only is this tiny tape a must-carry tool for when you're buying furniture or hardware, but it can come in handy at life's most unexpected moments—like when you're trying to decide if you can fit this year's holiday haul in the trunk of the sedan. Available from Spartan Shop; $16.
