It’s the holiday season! For some it’s a time for joy and cheer. For many, it signals the beginning of chaotic Christmas shopping endeavors. By now you should have your gift lists ready, but let’s face it, you probably don’t because it’s hard to come up that perfect gift. So, to help make things easier here are some suggestions that are just (about) right for anybody.
For the bacon lover inside all of us, get your friends some bacon accouterments. Ties with bacon designs, bacon mints, and bacon gum, bacon wallets, magnets, his and her bacon dental floss, and even bacon wrapping paper. For that person in your life who needs a fashion pick-me-up, go for the Lady Ga Ga meat-dress look and find one in bacon. We’re not claiming that we know such a thing exists, but if it did, someone you know would totally rock that.
Not your normal alarm clock:
Ever have a problem waking up in the morning? You just keep on hitting that snooze button? Surely someone you know has the same problem so give them the gift of a guaranteed wake-up every time. “Clocky” is an alarm clock with wheels and when it goes off in the morning it will run away from anyone trying to hit it’s snooze button. It’s every snoozer’s solution to getting out of bed on time because you have to catch it to get it to shut the fuck up.
The Shake Weight is just what the doctor ordered for anyone that complains about floppy arms. It’s a simple work out that makes you shake it a little more, a little harder, a little faster to work those biceps and forearms. With Shake Weight you can’t go wrong. Accompany it with the South Park episode about the Shake Weight and they’ll get a giggle about everything that is wrong with it.
The Never Ending Gift:
Find an obnoxious useless item (a shrunken coconut head works well) and send it off to a family member. They won’t have a clue as to what to do with it because, let’s face it, it’s useless. They’ll hide it away for a couple of years and then randomly find it again and decide to send it on to someone else, or it may find its way back to you just as you’ve forgotten about it. And so the pattern goes on and on: The Never Ending Gift.
Everyone wishes that they had the perfect mustache. So why not present someone with a kit full of them? They’re perfect for any party or for anyone looking for a Magnum P.I. disguise. They’re handy for a purse or pocket, ready to use at any time for any reason (mustache ride?). Giving the gift of the mustache to someone will make all of someone’s dreams come true.
