Chameleon Silks (also known as "color changing handkerchiefs)

Definition: Chameleon Silks, also known as "color-changing handkerchiefs," is a magic effect with handkerchiefs. The magician places a handkerchief in his or her hand, for example, a green one, and when it's pushed out the other side, it emerges a different color. At the end, the magician shows that his or her hand is empty.

I particularly like this trick because while it relies on a gimmick, it requires you to learn to work with your hands. And done right, it's absolutely baffling to spectators. You may purchase versions of this trick for around ten dollars.
