Enable Twitter mobile notifications to get pop-ups on your smartphone when the Botanicall sends out a hydration SOS. Mosaic Photo Book ($25) For sentimental fathers, try Mosaic. The smartphone app Mosaic (available for iOS and Android) quickly creates and delivers a unique Mosaic photo book. Once you download the app, select 20 photos from your camera roll and add them. Mosaic will then create and send a physical, 7-inch photo book within four days, all for the price of $25.
