Hey! You know what I haven’t seen lately on the blogosphere? A personal finance post on great gift ideas!
I’m kidding. Kinda. After all, there are already some great pieces on Christmas gift ideas for military members.
So… Are you tired of giving the same old stuff year after year?
I mean, come on. How many neckties and bottles of Old Spice can dear old dad get anyway?
Are you with me, people?
Well, here’s a quick list of some of my favorite off-the-wall gifts from Baron Bob. Give the gift of originality this year.
Crime Scene Scarf
Nothing gathers attention like a little crime scene tape wrapped around your neck. ($14.95)
Trix-Flavored Lip Balm
Here is a perfect stocking stuffer. I wonder if they plan on coming out with a Count Chocula version? I know grandma and grandpa would appreciate lip balm flavored like 100% Bran Flakes, but I didn’t see that one listed either. ($2.95)
French Toast Stamper
This is one I suggested to Jason over at Redeeming Riches for his article on 10 Great Gift Ideas Under $10. ($2.95)
Little Poopsie Stuffed Chew Toy
Let your pup be the life of the party as he entertains your guests while he chews on this squeaky toy that is shaped like the stuff that is better-suited for backyards as opposed to living rooms! ($6.95)
Potty Night Light
Ladies, how many times have you scolded your man for going potty in the dark and leaving a bit of a mess? Go easy on him because his intentions were true – he didn’t want to wake you. With this potty light, those problems are now a thing of the past. ($6.95 – and the batteries are included!)
Life Is Crap T-Shirt
Staying on theme, do you want the perfect counterpoint to those ubiquitous “Life Is Good” t-shirts? Here you go… ($14.95)
Hazardous Waste Leftover Containers
These leftover containers are perfect for the workplace, as their auspicious warnings serve as a reminder to all your shifty coworkers (I said “shifty”) that the stuff inside is not fit for their consumption. ($9.95)
For the party animal who doesn’t have time to traipse back and forth to the cooler for his next Silver Bullet, this insulated beer holder is perfect for tail-gaters everywhere. ($14.95)
$100-Bill Toilet Paper
Then again, if you’re patient, the Fed will eventually print enough of the real stuff to make this gift obsolete. ($4.95)
And at the rate they’re going I’m afraid you won’t have to wait very long.
