Trump's former butler, Tony Senecal, said of Trump in a March interview on CNN, "The man was born on Flag Day. He's a very patriotic person and he wants what's best for this country." Never mind that Flag Day wasn't made into a holiday until 1949 -- three years after Trump's birth. With that much patriotism, what better gift for the potential future leader of the free world is there?

In a February segment of HBO's "Last Week Tonight," comedian John Oliver revealed Trump's true heritage: His family name was changed from "Drumpf" in moving to America. "To quote Donald Trump, he should be proud of his heritage," Oliver said in the clip. And to truly experience that kind of familial pride, Trump should download the Google Chrome browser add-on that changes every instance of "Trump" into "Drumpf." chrome.google.com

For a man who tends to be a little trigger happy when it comes to social media posts, this app might be just what he needs. The SelfControl app will block its user from accessing set websites -- like Twitter -- for a set amount of time -- perhaps immediately following important events -- and it cannot be circumvented before the timer runs out. selfcontrolapp.com

Yes, a man who was on the Republican primary ballots until late February reportedly keeps small toy turtles in his pockets to remind passersby of the old idiom "slow and steady wins the race." Trump, who showed there was no love lost between Bush and himself throughout the primary season, might change his tune upon receiving one of these tiny gifts. amazon.com
