Weird Holiday Gifts

By Brian | December 27, 2007 | Share on Facebook

Returned that tie you got for Christmas and don’t know what to do with the resulting gift card? Know someone who’s birthday is December 27th and frustrated by the lack of items on the shelves in the recently ransacked stores? Have no fear – Matthew Baldwin is here with his 2007 Holiday Christmas Survival Guide for Slackers Cultural Warriors. I encourage you to click through, and peruse the whole thing, but allow me to call out some of the highlights:

There’s the Electronic Rock, Paper, Scissors Keychain (pictured) for when you just can’t be bothered to make a decision and change the shape of your hand all at the same time.

Then there’s a series of exercise bikes and treadmills connected to video game controllers, so your kids can get some actual exercise while playing video games, helping them to narrowly avoid the whole “go outside and play actual sports” thing.

Oh, and if you have a dollar but can’t find a match to burn it with, you can always send someone a GIF image of a Christmas gift and Facebook will take the dollar off your hands for you.

Moving on, we have the Viag-Ring, which is a plastic ring that holds a single Viagra tablet underneath a piece of glass (I’m guessing plastic, but whatever…) that says, “In Case of Emergency, Break Glass” (also pictured).

And finally, since we are approaching an election year, there’s the Hillary Nutcracker. I think this one pretty much speaks for itself.

So there you have it, my favorite items from Matthew Baldwin’s list of his favorite items available for purchase this holiday season. Happy Exchanging, everyone…
