Daily Chuckles - My completely random gift guide

I feel like I've been completely lacking inspiration for gifts this year - I was even having a hard time deciding what I wanted for myself (seeing as I wasn't going to make husband buy me a $500 camera lens).  I also go through the annual problem of having our wedding anniversary, Christmakuh and husband's birthday all within 3 weeks.  Yeah, I know, first world problems.

Anyway, I took to the internet for ideas and, in doing so, found a lovely assortment of completely random gifts that I just had to share with you all.  Here it is - my completely random gift guide (a/k/a stuff that I find hilarious).

Moo, I'm A Goat T-shirt
(courtesy of Snorg Tees) - $19.95

This shirt needs absolutely no explanation...or does it? Perfect if you enjoy seeing how long it takes for your friends to try and figure it out.
Magic Wand - Programmable TV Remote
(courtesy of Think Geek) - $89.99

Apparently it learns from your existing remotes, which inspires Harry Potter geeks and Muggles alike to be running around the house yelling "expelliarmus" and "accio" while waving the wand at TVs or ceiling fans. I'd actually be sorely tempted to teach it how to work the remotes in the office too, to really get everybody thinking that I have magical powers. Oh, the possibilities are endless!
Clocky Alarm Clock on Wheels
(courtesy of Brookstone) - $39.95

Don't go to the gym, just chase your alarm clock around the house! Apparently, Clocky will give you one chance to wake up and then will jump off your nightstand and take off. It doesn't say if Clocky is any good at hiding, seeing as an alarm clock you can't find could be a bit of a problem. Also doubles as a pet toy.
Kilt Beach Towel
(courtesy of Catalog Favorites) - $29.95

This will have folks wondering what your man's got under his kilt. I think this one is best used in public places and perfect for covering up those Speedos.
Monkey Tea Infuser
(courtesy of Waste Some Cash) - $9.75

If you've ever wanted to hear the phrase "there's a monkey in your tea", this is the time. You can then correct them by saying, "actually, there's tea in my monkey".
Slingshot Flying Monkey
(courtesy of Amazon) - $2.09 (sale)

While we're on the topic of monkeys, want an awesome gift for any white elephant gift exchanges coming up? This is guaranteed to be a big hit at meetings, given that it is a toy complete with screaming sounds.
Air Swimmer Remote Control Shark
(courtesy of Toys R Us) - $49.99

Another great item to have in the office, parties, or just following you around in general...especially if you've already purchased the wand remote.
Star Wars Chop Sabers
(courtesy of Think Geek) - $12.99

Technically, if you were really a Jedi, you could use mind tricks to get the food in your mouth. If that fails though, might as well use these chop sabers, which you could also use in battle should somebody try to steal your sushi.
ABC (Already Been Chewed) Cookie Cutters
(courtesy of Waste Some Cash) - $7.99

This may be the most brilliant method of keeping the cookies all to yourself!  An alternative for those of you who are used to licking your food to stake your claim.
Cock Blocker Wine Stopper
(courtesy of Amazon) - $7.95 (sale)

You always need something to prevent unwarranted advances...on your wine!  Helpful if you don't have your light-saber chopsticks on hand.


  1. I bought my sons a screaming monkey each last year, they were a big success :) They do tend to keep going off in the toy box though! :)

  2. Haha - how funny that they'd be screaming while unattended! My husband gave me a whistling monkey years ago but it was light activated so would whistle at anything that created a shadow. We ended up having to take the batteries out!

  3. These are amazing! Thanks for the ideas- my fav is the wand! :D


  4. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Got a great laugh out of your suggestions! I think I need to pick-up some of those ABC cookie cutters and definitely a wand!
