One-of-a-kind Stupid Gifts!

"Festive Fridays with Fun on the Blog"...
There are like 83 days left till Christmas, or something like that. This means various department stores will be sending out their Wish Book catalogs soon, and advertisements for Holiday shopping are just around the corner. In the spirit of shopping, and in pondering just the right gift, I came across several of the wrong gifts. I mean, who comes up with this stuff???
Check out the following REAL items for sale...Starting with the Lame down to the InSane...


Piano Gloves...only $69.95 (click here) Look Ma - No Hands! No Piano!


Giraffe for Baby...$95.96(??)Ok - so the ad says for ages 3 & up. Clearly, they think this baby looks three, and furthermore...how does one "play" with this exactly? If I'm gonna spend near $100, I am gonna expect a little more bang for my buck!
You Light My Fire - Pewter Match only $20 "Sorry dear...I couldn't afford that diamond ring you wanted...but here's a Pewter Match to show you just how much I love you(?)"



$59.99 to give your Ex the Ex! There's just so much good material here, I don't even know where to begin...well, except I can think of one more place to put a knife - hahaha.


WTFreak??? Here you have your "precious" little Devilynne from Krypt Kiddies.com for only $175 $175!!! Are you kidding me??? Geesh! If I wanted to crap my pants on Christmas morning, I'd make some of the traditional fruit cake, with an extra helping of fruit & fiber; not stick this hideous thing under the tree!!! And by the way - this is a "mild" doll! That's right! Apparently, Satan has a whole line in his collection!


Security Briefs are underwear that have a nasty stain in the back and a hidden Velcro compartment in front to stash your valuables. They cost $10 over at amazon.com and are pretty gross.

These are only a few of the ones I found! I am sure there are tons more!!! Let me know what you find when you're out doing your holiday shopping!!!

Greetings from Wisconsin!! Congratulations on your surprise BATW feature. I hope you enjoy your day in the sun.

As for the "gifts", I don't even know where to begin...I love the ex your ex. Really, that's just a public service.

You light my fire matches...good for anyone who smokes. Don't let Smoky the Bear see thiese.

The Krypt Kiddies and the underwear are just too disturbing for words.

Patti said...

Dawn said...

Becky Welch said...

Thanks for letting us drop in today from BATW!!! I agree - the gifts are crazy!! Enjoy your day!
Loved your interviews with the kids. I interviewed my 5 year old the other day on my blog!

Amy Kay said...

SURPRISE! We are crashing your Friday from BATW.

I really enjoyed the crazy gifts. That doll was freaky! It reminded me of nightmares I used to have about Chucky. I've seen a giraffe like that at an FAO Schwartz store, my two year old sat on it, and I have a picture too. :)

I hope you enjoy your spotlight and meet some new people.
Hugs from Georgia via BATW,
Amy ;)

Lauren W said...

Ummm... wow... Those sure are unique gifts...
Sometimes I wonder what on Earth people were thinking when they did things like this. I mean, seriously, WHY?
Anyway... Have a happy day!

~Trish~ said...

Hello from Kansas!! I have seen the ex knife holder and want it bad!!!

Michelle said...

Wow. The bad gifts are some of my favorite posts to read. I'm definitely going to have to keep an eye out for some good ones of my own!

But the Ex? That one is actually almost cool and funny enough to buy.

Debbie said...

Ha! Gotcha! What a great post to greet us today. Those gifts are OVER the top...Wow...I loved your commentary on each of them...Thanks for being such a good sport!

Cant Hardly Wait said...

Lynda said...

Greetings from Texas and BATW - surprise! What a hoot!

jed aaron said...

Somebody PULEASE tell me what BATW is!!!

I'm dyin here..out of curiousity!

Megs said...

Those are awesome. I personally think the stained briefs are genius. I mean what robber is gonna bother with some streaked undies? I'd put my money in there and feel okay leaving it in a hotel room while I go out. but that doll is absolutely disturbing.

Tamie said...

oh wow....hitch-hiked over from BATW...and i've got to say that some of those gifts are outrageous! and that devil doll---yikes! i guess that you could send it to someone you really, really hate---but that wouldn't be very Christlike, now would it?

Leslie said...

Surprise from BATW!!! Ummm....those security briefs are just plain gross. Who thinks of this stuff? Satan dolls? Absolutely frightening. Who on earth would buy anything like that? I wonder.

sassy stephanie said...

Seriously? Who would buy that doll? scrary ick

I, on the other hand, would love the knives.

Emily said...

What is BATW??? I love the little devil doll! if I got that under the tree. I would REALLY crap my pants!!

Willeyes said...

Hilarious as usual:)

I must say the "security undies" were a little disgusting.

Love the "ex your ex"...well said comment about that.

The "doll"...I don't even think you could call it that...that was just down right frightening and disturbing!

Happy Friday and Happy Snake Hunting:)

Elizabeth said...

EEK! Now they're just making things up for people to buy! I'm going to do all artisan-crafted gifts this year and try to support local or online businesses.

Sharon (sk) said...

Hello from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi!! We are having Beautiful fall weather this week!! LOVE IT! I also love your blog... you are too funny. These gifts are a riot... HAHAHA!!! You've inspired me to do some searching of my own to see just what I may find. :)

Shell said...

Happy Suprise BATW day. I'm coming in from New York. I love the You light my fire match. So cool.

Caution Flag said...

Hi from Detroit! The security briefs would probably work very well in this house :)

Frizzy and Bird said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. No worries milk and water are all we put in the bottle. We are off to taking it away this time it'll be for good. He wouldn't have given in if she hadn't been so miserable.

JourneytoFamily said...

Oh man... those are great! I love the knife holder. I'll have to get that for a newly single friend! And that freaky scary doll... what kid are ya gonna by that for? Future serial killers?

Oh man... that underwear is TOO much! LOL.

Tara said...

Surprise! Loved your post today. Who thinks of these things??

Tracy P. said...

Oh great, something to remind me to get crackin' on my Christmas shopping because there's so much good stuff out there! That's what I get for dropping in unannounced! ;-) Good for a great laugh, but not for motivation.

"The Queen in Residence" said...

Hey enjoy the BATW love it is amazing.

That doll was so creepy, I think I am going to have nightmares.

Brian and Staci said...

HELLO from Ms. Oklahoma! Those gifts...oh my! I'll have to come back and read more...gotta pick up my oldest from school!!! Your little kiddoes are just beautiful!! Have a great weekend!

Ronnica said...

Those security briefs are gross but probably would work!

Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day! I see that you got a special BATW feature today, that's great! Both are great communities, don'tcha think?

Sooz said...

Stopping by from BATW! Ohmigosh, the undies in particular are cracking me up...who sits down and think of these things??

Melissa Lester said...

Wow, those are ... interesting. My brother-in-law and his friends have an annual tradition of getting together for Rotten Toy Christmas. I don't quite understand their system, but they try to find the worst actual toy, and gag gifts are looked at with shame. They started this tradition in college, and now they have been doing RTC for more than a decade. So he keeps his eyes out all year for rotten toys.

As far as your finds, I can't believe anyone would pay that much for a creepy doll!

purplehaze said...

I can't believe the stuff they try to sell, but the underwear is way to much! The devil doll well that is ok, but would never put that under my tree!!

Tulsi said...

Some of these are so funny. And the others so scary!!

Gramma 2 Many said...

I would not waste a dime on any of those things. They are way to bizzare for me.
Except the underwear. I have been thinking of doing something similar to my undies for a trip to Africa. Will be leaving the brown stain off though.
Enjoy your BATW suprise day.

Rachel & Jacob said...

oh my gosh those are so crazy!!

looks like you had fun putting it all together though!! yeah!

Dawn said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! And congrats on your weight loss! That is awesome!!

This Mom said...

Hello from UTAH. Some of those are the creepiest gifts I seen. My luck hubby would find one and give it so me.

Jed said...

I don't know about you, butI love the dirty undies money stash. If for no other reason than a theif now has to go through my dirty laundry because I 'MIGHT' have money hidden in them. Cool

Have a great day!

Mrs. S said...
