VoIP Gift Idea: Skype Firebox Phone Handset

"Straight from Firebox, our good buddies in the UK, comes the USB-based Firebox VoIP Cyberphone. You use it to simulate traditional phone calling on Skype. This little number has a dial-pad, a headset input connector in case you’d prefer to use something other than the handset provided, as well as a volume control and one thing that I wish was on every corded phone: the number pad is on the BASE, not the HANDSET, making it easier to use for IVR interaction.

This works on Windows, Mac, or Linux, though the non-Windows support lacks keypad dialing. A nice Christmas or Hanukkah gift for the Skype addict on your gift list. (About $40 USD)
