The Unusually Wild Gift Guide

gift giver 2 1

I’ve been surfing the net for the wildest gifts online and would like to share a few unusual finds with you. Some are wilder than others, but they are all meant for someone who has everything or a sense of humor.

The Power Nap Head Pillow can be found at Bedding In

Because naptime…


 The Shower Squid can be found at Uncommon Goods.

 With the Body Sleeping Bag by Selk Bag, you never have to get out of bed.

The Human Bowling Ball will soon replace traditional football. Maybe not, but it sure looks like fun! Yep. That’s a human inside.

 You may already own the Bearded Beenie.

And no baby’s wardrobe would be complete without the Burly Beard.

 How have we lived without the Spinning Fork?

I love the Nightlight Orbs! They would be fun to juggle in the dark except toes.

The Oreo Dipping Spoon.

Here it is in action! Well, it’s not a video. Use your imagination.

The Tailgaters’ Hammocks because swinging around while eating and drinking is more fun than just sitting around.

The Long Reach Lotion Applicator. Her back looks pretty moisturized, don’t you think?

The Faces Mugs have some pretty sweet storage.

  1. Thanks for finishing up my shopping for me, Susie! Now I want to know how long it took you to track down these beauties! Have a wonderful Christmas and I hope none of these are under your tree! Warmest wishes to you and yours ~ keep that wild ride going in 2015!


    1. I surfed last Sunday night. It was a lot of fun.
      I would love a couple of these! Danny wants the spaghetti fork. I want the night light orbs, the shower squid, the sweet mugs and the human bowling ball. We’ll see! 🙂
      Have a fabulous Christmas too, Patricia! It’s always a Wild Ride!


  2. I’m kind of torn between the full body sleeping bag and the tailgating hammocks. Since they’d both be ideal for camping, I think they’re both making an appearance on my wish list.


  3. Back when I was growing up, there was a cartoonist named Herblock who frequently featured his inventions for a better tomorrow. Some of these look about as useful as his dehydrated water pill. All you had to do was add water.


  4. Susie, I think I like the swings on the car thing. Not that I do any, what is it called — tail boarding, tail parties? I don’t know but if I went camping, which I don’t because I hate it, this would come in handy. Maybe I just like the swing and I could hang it from a tree. And that full-body blanket is pretty good, especially if you live where cold and snow is. But, the fork spinner, now that’s a stocking stuffer for sure. Ha! Thanks for the laughs this morning!


    1. Glad you liked them! I hope you add them to your list.
      Tailgating is a term for picnicking from your tailgate before a football game. You probably knew that. 🙂
      I would love any one or all of these! They all cracked me up while I researched.


      1. That’s it–tailgating! I knew it was tail something. I don’t ever do it and I don’t like football (I know what’s wrong with me, I’m weird that way), but I just may have to ask Santa for the fork spinner. HA!!


  5. What a hoot! My favorite is the body sleeping bag. I could stay in that all winter, never leaving the house. I’m sure my husband would get sick of seeing me in it, though. 😉 Have to admit, the hot chocolate mugs were functional, but slightly creepy. But give me the twirly fork and the body sleeping bag and I’m good to go!


  6. Holy crap that nap pillow cracked me up!!! Totally could have used that when I needed a break from cramming for exams. Too funny. And if we had a huge yard my kids would definitely go for the human bowling after tailgating in the awesome hammocks!


  7. Godsend, my colleague here at The Grind, and I have both had the Power Nap Head Pillow on our radar for quite a while. I am sure it’s hotter than a kiln inside that thing; something I need to avoid at this stage in my advancing decrepitude. She would also be a big fan of the Oreo dipper. Ingenious! I wish that existed back in the day when I could still tolerate lactose.


  8. Um – the shower squid? Hmmm. I don’t even want to know. And I thought everyone had a spinning fork.

    Too bad my shopping’s already done this year.

    Thanks for sharing the silliness.

      1. Nope. Lots and lots of rain but only a few inches of snow in the mountains. But, I’m told they’re expecting quite a bit this coming week. There’s a cold front moving in so the next round of moisture is sure to bring more white stuff.

        I think there’s enough snow for some of the bigger resorts to supplement with manmade snow so they could at least open for skiing. That’s good. The enonomy up there sure needs to have a good season for a change.

        Stay warm over there in the Rockies.



  9. Oh, these are great! The oreo dipping spoon is the winner for me. Not that I eat many oreos but I would if I had this gift! Maybe I’ll print this and leave it around the house as a HINT and someone will get it for me. Thanks for sharing.


    1. Right? They all made me laugh for one reason or another. Put the tailgate hammocks on your list. If you find the nap pillow under your tree, you’ll be thankful the next time you fly!!!


  10. Hadn’t seen the tailgater slings – must rush to show my fan-frenzied neighbor who has the giant smoker on a trailer for game day! He’ll love it.
    Leave it to Suzy to locate those last minute gift ideas!
    (Have you seen the new Snugglies? Patterned like tuxedo and fancy dress…and one with a cowl collar and belt….and there are more…soon on you late night tv commercials?)


  11. These are spectacular! So many fun ones. I did get a beard beanie as a gift once. I wore it to the Oktoberfest parade when my husband and I dressed like matching lumberjacks and I got lots of compliments on my beard! So many in fact that my husband got jealous and shouted back “Mine’s real” to someone on one of the parade floats. LOL

    The shower squid or tailgating hammocks amuse me the most. I’ve already been human bowling. Don’t know if I could take that now, but I had a blast in college with that one! 🙂


    1. Thanks for the tweetage Jess!
      I can just “see” you sporting the beard. I did that once with stache sunglasses. I think we are two of kind! The best kind! 🙂
      I would love to go human bowling. I want to order the squids for a guest bathroom! Ha!


  12. I love, love, love the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog! I saw that power nap head pillow in it and I think it would make me claustrophobic. I actually really like the tailgater’s hammocks. Those night orbs look pretty cool too. My son would love those, as he sleeps with a light on at night. Hammacher Schlemmer has a life-sized robot for sale for a mere $345,000.00.
