UNICORN WINE HOLDER - white elephant gifts

From stripping sloths to drunk unicorns… There are two wonderful things about this unicorn wine holder: 1. It’s legitimately called “WINE OF SACRED PURITY UNICORN WINE HOLDER.” 2. All that sacred purity is only $20.

The Sushi Bazooka sounds as epic as it is. You basically fill it with your favorite sushi ingredients and blast it out of the bazooka, and boom: easy sushi.

Emergency Sriracha

Sriracha Mini Keychain

Speaking of pizza… the emergency Sriracha keychain is here to help you with your hot sauce needs at ANY TIME ANYWHERE.



Anything by Calligraphuck. I love their Fucking Brilliant Pencils (my favorite thing to give to writers), and their aggressively awesome stationery.

Hot dog toaster

retro hot dog toaster

This is called the “retro hot dog toaster” but were hot dog toasters ever actually A Thing back in the day? I don’t know. But this exists now, and it’s an amazing single use appliance that’s guaranteed to get a lot of bizarre looks, but damn will it come in handy when you want just one or two hot dogs.

No one NEEDS a mini desktop hoverboard that actually hovers and slides back and forth… but at the same time, don’t you think everyone should have one?

The flask scarf


Move over bracelet flask, the flask scarf is here and it’s making my heart swell with joy, and my neck swell with whiskey. And I love that the description on Amazon says, “perfect for all occasions, especially when it’s a dry event.” And look how many styles it comes in!

The pooping cow toothpick dispenser

arling Little Cattle Toothpick Dispenser

This is a toothpick dispenser that looks like a cow (just look at it’s cute little cow face!) and it “poops” out toothpicks from it’s tiny adorable butthole. The only thing that takes this from absolutely perfect to best thing ever is this description on Amazon: “Expect it to be an heirloom your kids or grand kids will remember years from now.” Now start investing in your own family heirloom this holiday season.
