It has been said that the ‘holiday season’ is a month of incredibly intense craziness and stress interrupted by a few brief moments of joy. I’m not sure who said that, maybe it was me, but part of that craziness and stress comes from trying to figure out what to get that person who ‘has everything’, and once you’ve figured it out, where to find it. As always, we’re here to help relieve some stress by providing you with some ideas of unique gifts that not only will make that ‘special someone’ sit up and take notice, but mark you as a unique gift-giver . . . or a crazed, eccentric nutcase.
This first item is for that person who thinks ‘everything’ is a flip phone, a Brownie camera and an eight-track cassette player, who you’ve been trying to bring into the new millennium for years, albeit kicking and screaming. Yes, it’s a typewriter, but with an attached monitor and a USB port, – it’s like training wheels for cyber-phobics.
This next item is for that person who thinks they have the perfect coffee mug, with a picture of (fill in the blanks) and the words ‘World’s Greatest (fill in the blank). Not so fast! Fellow workers will be wiping tears of laughter from their cheeks and those in the coffee klatch will be flushed with envy when they see that brown liquid swirling in this porcelain mug. One lump or two?
And while we’re on the subject of bathroom humor, here’s a towel that is sure to please those who have been confused about which end to use to wipe their face . . . and other parts. Color coordinated.
Fifty Shades of Chicken is for that chef on your list that has every cookbook ever printed, except this one! This completes the study of the Big Three Bs of cooking: Baking, Broiling and Bondage.
If your ‘person who has ‘everything’ is fairly mindless, OK, completely mindless, then they’re going to really enjoy the yodeling pickle. Don’t you wish you would have invented it?
To ensure that we are politically incorrect to both parties, we’re offering that political junkie on your list the option of using either of these toilet tissues. Get both for the independent or fence-sitter! Let the good times roll.
Hope this helps
