Take a walk on the weird side with this list of unusual gifts. You won’t find any crowd pleasers here, these are gifts where you really have to know your recipient pretty well to make sure that they’ll like it. The benefit of giving an unusual gift is that they’ll never forget opening it, so pick something off-the-wall and celebrate the oddball in your life.
The 80 Hour Horizontal Candle
This cool looking, long lasting candle has an all-natural beeswax wick wrapped around a copper frame. You pull out three inches of the wick at a time, and it burns for an hour. It has a steampunk look to it. An interesting conversation piece.
This gift is labeled NSFW: Not Safe For Work. It’s filled with two hundred individually wrapped fortune cookies. But these aren’t your typical fortunes. Each one is either offensive, insulting, or both. The cookies come in a black box, and include instructions on a fun way to use the cookies as a dinner party game.
The science enthusiast in your life will love this set of planet plates. Everyone else? Maybe not so much. This set of eight, dishwasher-safe melamine plates is printed with realistic images of all the planets in our solar system. Yes, only eight. Alas, poor Pluto no longer makes the list.
There are people in the world who’d be over the moon for a big rubber ducky. When we say big, we mean it. This rubber ducky is over six feet tall. It’s great for the pool, the lake, or to simply sit in your yard. It comes with tie-downs to keep it in place.
This knife set is like our Dead Fred pen holder. It comes with five knives, but the holder is what makes it special. It’s a red, plastic person. Each knife has a slot in a different part of the body. One in each leg, two in the torso, and one in the middle of the forehead.
This is another book geared toward a couple that’s looking to get a little more spicy during their private, adult time. It’s written by well-known author Siobhan Kelly. If you’ve ever wanted to go through the “Doorway to Heaven” or wondered what a “Spinning Jenny” is, then this is what you want to get for your partner. You hope.
This funny set of sticky notes says “CRAP” across the top. Below that, it’s got tick boxes for Boring Crap, Useless Crap, More Crap, Total Crap, Other Crap, and Crappy Crap. This gift is for the person in your life who always has a ton of crap to do, but needs help remembering which type of crap to do, and when.
This shower gel dispenser mounts easily on the bathroom while. It’s shaped like a giant nose, and dispense shower gel out of the right nostril at the push of a button. This is a funny gift for kids, teenagers, or that friend who’s not likely to look at it and say “eeeeewwwwww”.
This funny gift is for a person with a morbid sense of humor. The end of the pen sticks into the chest of a red, plastic figure lying on its back. It looks like it’s been killed by the pen. Every they reach for the pen, they’ll get a nice chuckle.
Gross! This shower gel holder looks exactly like a blood-transfusion bag from the hospital. It hangs from the shower head by a convenient rope, and it’s filled with thirteen and a half ounces of blood-red shower gel. Squeeze the bag, and out comes the blood. Like we said: gross!
This is a human-shaped sleeping bag. It’s the Michelin Man meets the great outdoors. There are some people who simply don’t like zipping up in a sleeping bag, and this is specially made for them. It’s got Velcro closures on the hands, feet and face.
This a big ‘ol pile ‘o poop. It’s a great gift for a practical joker, or for a person on whom you want to play a practical joke. It’s so realistically designed, you can almost smell it just looking at the picture. As the manufacturer says, “it’s our top of the line poop.” Don’t skimp on poop. Especially at Christmas.
This is a pair of red, boy style underwear made for the woman whose partner needs a bit of reminding about exactly what to do in a particular situation. It’s spelled out in no uncertain terms in white lettering right across the front. Have a look—you’ll know right away if it’s the right gift.
This is a coffee mug that looks exactly like a toilet. It’s got a black rim that looks like the seat, and the handle is a perfect replica of the rectangular back-side of a standard home toilet. For the person in your life who’s a big fan of potty humor.
This is a cutting board for that person in your life who absolutely has to get everything exactly right. It’s got gridlines and angles for all manner of cutting. It’s got guides for brunoise, batonnet, allumetter, julienne, fine julienne, as well as medium or small dice. The lines are burnished, not printed, so they won’t wear off.
These decorative sandals go from mid-calf to the top of the foot. There’s nothing on the bottom, though. They’re purely for accent, with an attractive butterfly design. They’re a great gift for the hippie girl in your life, the poolside lounger, or to wear at a beach party.
