Ten Odd Christmas Gift Ideas

fullsizeoutput_898

Alert, alert, the Christmas shopping season is upon us. Prepare to be bombarded by heaps and heaps of stuff you really don’t need. I have to wonder— Am I the only one who is tired of all the plastic mass produced crap decorated with shiny sprinkles and glossy coating? I truly believe dear consumers we are being manipulated into spending too much kaching kaching at Christmas.

This year our family decided to scale down our consumerism and some of the gifts we purchase will be experiences rather than presents. I couldn’t help but notice they sell survival adventures on-line for a hefty fee— I live by a forest, all I need is a blindfold and a gifted participant. Or maybe I could present a fitness enthusiast with an axe throwing/wood splitting experience? I’ll supply the axe and wood— First aid is extra.

I wanted any gifts I purchased to be exceptional. Therefore I logged into my computer and began wading through an overwhelming number of websites. After too much time I can no longer reclaim to my life, I discovered human beings are strange, and it’s no wonder aliens have kept their distance. Allow me to share with you a few unusual items which I found on the web sites Weird sh*t and Oddity Mall.

This item could be used as an appetite suppressant because I almost lost my lunch.

This gift actually has possibilities— I call it the wife appeaser.

Hilarious, yet so wrong in so many ways. Mind you, Einstein did encourage using your imagination.

A great stocking stuffer for that special guy in your life. He can put one in his glove box in case he has one of those emergencies no one likes to talk about.

I don’t know if this works but my intuitions says no, so I would definitely turn my nose up at this gadget.

Here is an inventive apparatus for the cat lover in your family. Or it could be an extra stocking surprise for the special fetish practicing person in your life.

I admit this gift is original, but it caused me to wonder? Does it come with a purse size flea spray?

At first I thought, what a great idea! But then I though this may be a little too supportive of Hemmingway’s write drunk philosophy.

Most pointless gift ever— Unless it’s for a chicken of course.

Best gift ever! But I’m too cheap to buy it. I’ll probably rip the drain out of the shower and build my own.

On that note I wish you all a minimalist shopping adventure this year.
