8 Unusual Christmas wish list ideas, and a gift for you.

November 24, 2014

Two years ago I created a silly and unusual Christmas wish list, but now I realise it wasn’t silly at all. In fact, it was genius.

My dear friend Ali has been traveling the world for a couple of years and if she comes across anything on this list, she buys it and sends it to me….. except in the case of the food grabber things because she bought me 5 in every colour and I now have many and I never need touch snacks with my hands again.

Exhibit A

I’ve been sending them out when someone buys a hard copy of my book. The bonus gift you never knew you needed.

I must say my favourite silly gift that I received was the bacon marmalade because bacon. Surprisingly it goes with cheese and avocado like Fred goes with Ginger.

I thought I’d pop another little wish list together, and if you feel inclined to get on that bandwagon then send me some love in the form of something ridonkulous.

Fundies

Fundies

I’m ready to get back on the wagon, so to speak, and what better way to end a date than inviting someone in for coffee and whipping out a pair of Fundies.

Ostrich Napping Pillow

You just slip your entire cranium into this bad boy, whack your head down anywhere and you can snooze without fear suffocating. I love napping, so this makes perfect sense, although I’d block up those side holes to create more of a cone of silence.

Floating Ping Pong

Floating Ping Pong 

Because when I ALWAYS play ping pong I get really, really hot. Just need a pool and I’m good to go.

And a chorus of angels heralded as I began to mix my own moonshine. Isn’t that poetic? Or maybe I’m just drunk on the idea.

Bacon Scented Candle

Bacon Scented Candle

Freshly cut grass, babies heads, baking bread and frying bacon.  Really they’re the only aromas that you ever really need to worry about sniffing ever again and we have one of them covered right here. Put it by your bed for romantic nights accompanied by the heady aroma of cured pig.

 

Woojer Vibrating Fake Subwoofer

Woojer Subwoofer Imitator

I don’t get to go out partying like it’s 1999 any longer so this contraption will take me back to the days of old dancing the night away in front of speakers until my ears rang for the whole next week.

With this contraption I can pop the kids to bed, put on my head phones and have a silent disco complete with arrhythmia.

Sriracha Key chain

Sriracha Key Ring

Sriracha is one of my all time fave condiments. It may be of Chinese origin, but it goes with any cuisine in my house. With my trusty sriracha key chain I will never be without it again. The bearer of this gift would endear themselves to me for all time.

 

My gift to you all….

    We NEED that floating ping pong table for our pool! We’d be the coolest kids in the neighbourhood (pun intended).

    Dammit I missed the cutoff but signed up anyhow. I may have to go in for a copy and a bonus food grabber – hands, who needs ‘Em? Except perhaps to operate the grabber?? I really feel like I might need that bacon and eggs set. As for the ostrich napper, would that thing make it through customs because that may just be the answer to sleeping on planes for me.

Fundies’ – well – tried em’ once but Glen couldn’t fit in so why bother :o( – I mean I like myself but I’m NOT that narcassitic. Anyway, I’m WAAAYY too vain :o) Luvya’ woik hunny, XO
