It's hard enough to do your holiday shopping on an individual basis. But gift-giving for couples? It's damn near impossible.

Fortunately Jackalope Ranch has stumbled upon the ultimate gift for that special couple that seems to exist in every social circle -- the couple that stays together, clings together, does PDAs together, and make us all want to throw up together.

It's called the Twinsie and, yes, it looks as dumb as it sounds. Sold through the British online retailer The Original Factory Shop, the "Tokyo Laundry Twinsie" is priced at £50 (roughly $80).

Available in sizes small, medium, and large (how you factor this in as a couple, we have no idea) and comes in you and your conjoined twin's choice of gray, navy, or aubergine (because this is the U.K. and they can't just say purple).

Making the Snuggie look like sophisticated evening wear, we expect the Twinsie to be this year's novelty cop-out to couples gifting.
