Random/Weird Holiday Gifts You Can Buy on Amazon
You know how the saying goes: one man’s weird is another man’s got-to-have holiday gift. (That is a saying, right?!?)
If you have someone in your life, that’s hard to shop for or loves unique and slightly kooky gifts. Boy, do we have a holiday gift lineup for you!
Shakespearean Insult Bandages
A bandage with a personality. What more could you ask for? So technically, Amazon carries a whole bunch of different types of bandages, which makes me feel a way about my oh-so-lame clear Target-branded bandages. But once you realize the world of bandages has so much more to offer, getting a cut won’t ever be that bad again. Get it here.
Squirrel Finger Puppet Toy Set
There are mixed feelings amongst the staff at New Why about squirrels. Some think they are adorable (I’m looking at you, Michelle!), and some think they are garden wreckers (🙋🏾♀️). So, depending on where you stand on the squirrel divide, you’ll either love or hate this finger puppet toy set. Get it here.
Electronics Shower Curtain
Am I a little creeped out about having my iPad’s camera in the shower? Yes? But maybe you won’t be. Never miss one of your favorite shows again just because you had to take a pesky shower. Put any and all of your devices into this shower curtain and enjoy streaming while steaming (see what we did there). Get it here.
Penguin Egg Holder
I honestly don’t know what you need this for. But it is so cute! You can make your hardboiled eggs look like little penguins. I love the practice of making food cute, so this fits the bill. Get it here.
Dog Head Mask
Definitely not creepy, right? Be your favorite dog. Poodle. Mastiff. Corgi. The world is your oyster. Find a dog head mask of almost any breed on Amazon. Terrified crying children are not included. Get it here.
Life Size Bob Ross Cutout
Do you need this? Probably not. But do you want it? Kind of. Bring the magic of Bob Ross into your home every day with this cardboard cutout. Now, happy little trees and that trademark afro can be the first thing you see each morning when you wake up. Who wouldn’t want that? Get it here.
Keanu Reeves Oil Painting
There’s a whole world of celebrity-based products on Amazon. Strangely, Nicholas Cage has a LOT of products with his face on it. But if Cage isn’t your style, how about some Keanu? There’s a ton more Keanu merch, but this oil painting just wreaks class, and you’ll be the talk of the town if you bring this to the company white elephant party! Get it here.
Everyone knows someone who loves pizza. Gift the pizza-lover in your life more pizza than they can ever dream of with this enormous pizza blanket. Wrap yourself in the cozy splendor of pepperoni while celebrating your favorite food. Get it here.
Body Knife Block Set
The murder mystery or true crime lover in your life will love this “stab body man” knife block set. I’m not sure what kitchen decor you need to make this “flow” in your kitchen, but at the very least it’s a statement piece. Get it here.
Cheese Stick Chiller
Last but not least, it is probably my favorite random find on Amazon: the Cheese Stick Chiller. This cool (pun intended!) little device solves a particular but unique problem. Anyone who has ever transported string cheese out of the house knows that once that cool creamy mound of mozzarella loses its chill, it turns into a squishy and gooey log. It’s not nearly as fun as the stringy sensation it used to be. Enter the Cheese Stick chiller – a device that claims to keep your string cheese cold (and stringy!) for hours! The lunch packer in your life may just need this innovation that they didn’t even know existed. Get it here.
Well, that rounds out our 2023 Holiday Gift Guide of random yet somewhat practical things you can purchase on Amazon. Feel free to comment below or email us if you find anything equally (or more absurdly random). We’d love to know what else you found out there!
