When revelry turns to holiday fun
I will continue with that comment…
A box full of milk chocolates shaped like worms, spiders and maggots. Gross but tasty! Great gift for kids.

A chilling collection of Spooky Chocolates, created by design student Amrit Pal Singh. These seem to be inspired by Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas,” along with gruesome descriptions of the ingredients that could lead to some creepy scares. Enjoy the yucky goofiness of Mummy Pie and Zombie Fudge or the sickly satisfying sniff when you bite into the Crunchy Bones Cocoa Wafers. Great for dressing up.
And also some political horrors
Smooth away your crazy facial wrinkles with the..
No, seriously, it’s for dogs!
Make this holiday special for your canine friend with Bowser Beer, a non-alcoholic and non-carbonated drink! Now you don’t have to worry about calling a cab for your dog every time he’s had a little too much to drink.
Speaking of beer…
An ingenious invention that is indispensable for the collection of any drinking enthusiast
Unfortunately this one is a joke, but I still like the idea. This completely outrageous bottle glass can hold up to 750ml of wine. Perfect gift for a friend who needs something above average.

Christmas Tree Vibrator (not so friendly)
Leo Smith, the inventor, firmly believed that the ornaments on a Christmas tree look much nicer when the tree vibrates. So he made a vibrating attachment for already decorated trees, which would result in a “pleasant two-dimensional vibration without interfering with the decorations.” He also thought the effect would be pleasing to both the eyes and ears, with the ornaments vibrating and brushing against the tree creating a rustling sound “similar to the sound of sleet falling on full snow”.
Wonder why it didn’t catch on.
Now it’s time for the hottest fashion in the season
There’s more to it than the horrible caption. Apparently once you download an app and choose the right animation, then slip your phone into the Velcro pocket inside this sweater, Santa’s eyes move, seemingly scanning the room in an eerie fashion. Ah, the wonders of technology… takes creepiness to whole new levels.
I have no idea why! Maybe it’s for… no, no idea.
These highly sought-after ski masks make great unconventional gifts for your ski buddies…and non-ski buddies!

Something for the camera geeks…
A very unique and thoughtful gift for your photo fanatic friends that is sure to bring a smile to their faces. Or yours, if you consider yourself somewhat of a photographer. It’s designed to look like a Canon EF 24-105mm camera lens with all the details of a regular camera lens and comes with a lid that doubles as a cute little cookie jar. Make sure you keep the real lens at a safe distance to avoid confusion or you’re going to have a BIG problem.
