13 Strange and Bizarre Gifts For The Weirdos In Your Life

Know someone hard to shop for? Are you sick of looking for something they'll actually like? Why not try something sure to confuse them instead? These strange goodies will be great ways to throw off the preconcieved gift ideas people already expect from you.

Weird Gift 1:
Squirrel Feet Earrings

Know someone completely morbid? Maybe someone who hates rodents? Well, I'm sure there's someone on yourlist who would like genuine, freeze-dried squirrel feet earings. Please don't ask me where they get the feet, I sincerely don't want to know. Of course, if you do buy these for someone, you might want to make sure you don't spend too much time with them afterwards. After all, buying earrings for someone doesn't mean you ever want to be seen with the person wearing them. (Update: This Etsy item is no longer available.)

 
Weird Gift 2:
Fetus Cookie Cutter

Who doesn't love eating fetuses? Oh yeah, pretty much everybody. But for the handful of weirdos who love them, be it weird punk rockers or pro-life fanatics, this fetus cookie cutter is just what the clinic doctor ordered. It's only $10, making it the perfect price for any total weirdo in your life.

 

Weird Gift 3:
LED Xmas Tree or Menorah

Here's a great way to merge old Christmas traditions with modern day technology. Just pop a battery into this cute little LED Christmas tree and watch the motherboard light up its lovely flashing LED lights. It may be a little small to put presents under, but with the recession this year, that may be all the space you need. The LED Menorah is also pretty cool.

 
Weird Gift 4:
The Hand Window Sign

Know someone who loves to express themselves with their hands?   "The Hand" will help them say it all when they're on the road. I know you're probably thinking of one particular hand gesture that may get you shot if you're in the wrong part of LA, but there are plenty of other things you can say with your hands, like “peace,” “hang ten,” or “live long and prosper.” Funny how they're mostly all the opposite of your naughty hand gesture isn't it?


Weird Gift 5:
Self stirring Mug

Why worry about spoons and swizzle sticks when you can have a mug that does all the work for you? At the push of a button, your sugar, cream, booze and any other additions to your coffee can be blended in with this great Self-stirring mug. These are great for exceptionally lazy geeks, women with fused-wrists, spoon-phobic men and all kinds ofother strange niches of people you probably don't really have in your life.(Buy here)

 

Weird Gift 6:
Gun Alarm Clock

If you love Duck Hunt, or know someone else who does, you'll appreciate this sweet gun alarm clock. It's definitely an effective way to wake up, just shoot the target to get the alarm to stop ringing. Besides the whole wake-up factor, it's just really fun to play shoot things. (Buy here)


Weird Gift 7:
Radio Controlled Tarantula

 

 

Little boys love two things, toys that scare or annoy their sister and gross things. Why not give them anall in one gift combining the two joys for them? A radio-controlled tarantula is just the thing for scaring siblings and exploring just how fun huge spiders can be. (Buy here)

Weird Gift 8:
Decapitated Teddy Bear Lamp

I gotta admit, this is probably the only thing on this list I actually would want. This teddy bear lamp is cuddly and functional and it would match my decapitated bear USB drive. Now that's some awesome style. He certainly would light up my life -and yes, that pun was intended. (Buy here.)


Weird Gift 9:
Kids Tattoo Maker:

Do your kids love tattoos? Do they think needles are fun? Then they're sure to love this GR8 TaT2 Maker toy that will train them for their future jobs requiring no education or real life experience. Not that tattoos or tattoo artist are a bad thing, not by any means, but is this really something you need to get your kids into early?


Weird Gift 10:
Knitted Frog Dissection:

If you love biology, but hated all those dead little animals, you'll love this cute little knitted frog. All the organs are in place for your dissecting pleasure, although I don't recommend actually removing them. You can unpin him from the background and cuddle your dead amphibian friend through, which makes him more of a lover than a science project.


Weird Gift 11:
Nothing

Ever been so mad at someone that not giving them a gift seems to be an understatement? They might just think you forgot or couldn't afford to get them something. No, nothing says you intentionally left them out like the gift of nothing. Show them exactly how much they mean to you, give them the gift of nothing. (Update: OriginalGift of Nothing has been replaced by this Gift of Nothing.)

 
Weird Gift 12:
A Smoker's Umbrella:

No one likes to stand in the rain alone, yet smokers everywhere are constantly forced to smoke outside. So what's a smoker to do when it's raining and they just have to get their puff on? The Smoker's Umbrella is the ultimate solution for cigarette lovers who are caught in the cold. The kit comes with an ash tray attachment and an adorable cigarette-styled carrying case. (Update: The smoker's umbrella is no longer available. )

Haha

They sell those smoking umbrellas in my tobbacconist.

And, I have a female-peeing-upright device, but mine's called a she-wee.

I go camping alot, and like festivals, and sometimes get so wasted finding somewhere good to squat is near impossible.

I like the earrings, and I think my boyfriend actually would like the enema pin.

The kiddie tattoos and spider are lame.

Funny read though.

You cite "live long and prosper" as a hand-signal that the device is capable of, but it's nowhere on the diagram.

There are bags is a proper sentence, but in this context, it's incorrect and confusing. They're bags is correct. They're being a contraction of they are.

Why

Why would pro-life fanatics eat fetuses? Wouldn't it be pro-choice?

There are bags.

The nurse was stating that there are bags that are used to contain the waste material that is produced from an enema and that she and the hospital staff considers those bags to be enema bags. She also could have stated that they are enema bags, but note that she said 'We *consider* them [to be] enema bags'. Which means that although those bags may not be labeled officially as enema bags they are only considered that. The order in which she gave the information also influences which "they're, there, their" she used as is seen the previous sentence. I had to refer back to the bags (the antecedent noun in the sentence) and since we are talking about a property concerning the name of the bags we would consider the bags to be a personal noun and had to therefore use a pronoun as a substitute for the clearly understood noun, the bags. Otherwise, it would be almost tongue-tying to repeat the same noun over and over again (also seen in the constant repetition of "the bags") .

Perhaps a clearer example would be to conveyed by the following statements: There is a car. It is red. There are cars. They are not all red. That couple owns that car. Their car is blue. Any car that is new on the lot is not red. They're green.

Note: When brackets [] are used it means that the current writer/author (not the original writer/author) has inserted their own words to clarify something or for any number of other reasons. In this case it was because I felt that the sentence lost some context when quoted.

One final note. In trying to explain this matter in a non-abrasive or negative manner I may have very well made several mistakes myself. Instead of vehemently attacking other people and whether they have a mastery over the English language perhaps it would be better to note the error and propose to look up the information and leave pointers to that information or suggest that the person may want to look up such information themselves and do so in a constructive and caring manner. This approach to comments may add a nominal amount of effort on the part of the person commenting, but in the full scope of things this very concept would do a lot to guide our species (humans) towards a better understanding of each other and an enriched form of communication.
