I hear canned goods last a while. This can of soup is from my freshman year of college—Mmm! Mmm! Good!
Slower than everything, and unable to leap anything. He’s the hero we never asked for; deformed and legless. Rather than causing change he merely holds it. And now he’s yours.
I was lame and couldn’t find a gift in time, so I was given these cute little vampire fangs to gift instead. Perfect, because I think everybody should want to be a vampire! But please, no sparkling.
Uncle Indy found this gem in Oaxaca, Mexico, near the temple of doom and said he immediately thought of me. I still don’t know what he meant by that. But Jones’ give the best gifts.
Back in 1992, while dancing around the living room with candy in my mouth, I choked! This is the phone Mom used to call 911. I only hope he can be a lifeline to other young dancing queens and kings.
My sister has a knack for gifting me long-lost artifacts from our childhood. Raisineeta here was a good pal to 8-year-old me. Last spring, she showed up on my doorstep.
To be honest, not sure where she came from she just appeared in my office one day. When the opportunity came up to find her a new, more loving home, I jumped all over it. Enjoy!
This is a gift we never knew we needed. The Klein family hopes the next owner will have more success balancing a bottle of wine on these clever little guys.
I was a picky eater as a child. While others would indulge in Big Boy meals, I’d only lick the ketchup and salt off my fries. This bobblehead was a bribe from my parents to finish my dinner!
Love is… a sparkly, pink snow globe.
When I was 12, I got bit by a vampire. Soon after, Taylor Lautner showed up at my doorstep and gave me this book. I am now an expert so I’m no longer in need. Hopefully, it will serve others well!
This Thundercats wallet complete with Yo MTV Raps trading cards and autographed by the owner might be “worth something someday.” The owner’s girlfriend wishes the new owner luck with this gold mine!
When I need inspiration I look to my Stacey King bobblehead and consider his wise words, such as “Asik and Destroy” or “I like my meatballs spicy!” Productivity skyrockets. You’ll see.
Something no household should be without. This gift is both functional AND fun. Never lose your keys again and put a smile on your face when you put them in their place.
The worst gift, besides golf balls in the winter, is Top Flite golf balls. Now I have to stare at these terrible golf balls all winter and wait for the sun to hit the links again.
My good friend is obsessed with Paula Deen. She brought these back from Knoxville just for me. Now I want to share the delicious nuts with other Paula Deen fans.
For years I was baffled about how to make sliders. This ‘As Seen on TV’ product saved me. Now, I pass on to others the gift that fate bestowed on me, giving them hope, pride, and small chunks of meat.
A Ravenclaw hat? Really? If you get me a Harry Potter hat at least get a Gryffindor one. That would’ve been a keeper.
I bought this anklet from a local in the Bahamas. The lady said it was the ONLY one of its kind. Learned that everyone was selling the exact same stuff down the street. #NoviceTraveler #Woolovereyes
There once was a fawn named Shawn. He lived on a lawn for fawns. Shawn liked to yawn on his lawn for fawns. He then turned into a whistle.
These creepy little guys are the perfect convergence of two of my passions: 80s cult movies and collectible toys. You may simply see Freddy and a Gremlin, but I see my childhood.
Yeah, I used to be a coconut. I’m not ashamed. What I am ashamed of is the fact that I’ve been holding this bottle for almost 3 years now and it’s empty. For Christmas, I asked Santa for a refill.
This year I ordered what I thought to be an adult tiger pajama onesie for Halloween. I accidently ordered a childrens XS. I’m small, but I’m not THAT small! I hope someone can enjoy these tiny PJs.
My Glam Rock days are long gone so I think this glitter flask needs a new home. But, I will not part with my rattlesnake spandex pants!
I acquired these maracas on the streets of Old San Juan. My hope is that, with these, I can also pass along some of the, “Shake, shake, shake, Señora!” that I also acquired on my solo journey.
The stars were aligned when I acquired this rare piece of art at our family’s White Elephant. My dad proudly told me, “I hit the mother load!” when I opened his $5 garage sale find.
Brewed in the depths of Casterly Rock, this crisp lager is the very best beer in all of Westeros. As strong as Valyrian Steel but as smooth as Dornish wine, it always pays its debts...of refreshment.
My mom gave me this very sophisticated purple glitter shoe-shaped make-up brush holder for my 29th birthday. One day, maybe she won’t see me as a 13-year-old girl anymore… sorry Mom!
There’s nothing like putting on your comfy pants, stuffing some tea leaves in and climbing into the tub. I always end up chillin’ on the edge, thinking about how I’m going to get tea out of my pants.
This is Sir Legoman Head. He likes chocolate covered bananas and enjoys leisurely summer afternoon strolls through Legoland, where he hopes to one day find the rest of his body.
When one is sick, there is nothing cheerier than flowers. Flowers wilt, but not this arrangement. It sings, it dances, it’s Walgreen’s finest. Can’t help but laugh at how cheesy this is.
They say you’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. This one wasn’t the one for me, but maybe he’ll be for someone else!
Robot DJ’s descended from the sky with a new album of futuristic electronic sounds. They destroyed the party and introduced me to the electronic dance music movement. I gift you with music history!
I won this yard of bubblegum in a meeting and it has brought a yard of fun to my office. Unexpected visitors will stop by for a chance to get their hands on a giant gumball.
While other toddlers were busy putzing around in sandboxes making amateur sand castles, lil’ DG devoted his childhood to collecting glass vessels and filling them with polychromatic beach powder.
This is for anyone who would rather live in the past than face the current reality of the Chicago Bears. Also for those hipster audiophiles who insist the Punky QB sounds much better on vinyl.
Everyone should just relax and be happy.
One summer at the Jersey Shore I found love with the local DJ. My father didn’t approve, but Pauly told me that no one puts a baby in the corner. I had this bobblehead made to remember our young love.
This was my mom’s knock off Barbie, recently handed down to my daughter and I. Yes, she’s a little scary, but she was loved by Mom for many years and that’s why we keep her around.
While this voodoo doll looks scary, the message tacked on it is “…squeeze me tight, rub my heart, my luck will come to you.” It has made over 3 moves with me; I keep it because I am superstitious.
We hung this beauty right above the porch of my childhood home, so you saw it every time you walked in. It was as though the eagle was watching out for us. A patriotic gatekeeper, of sorts.
I’ve always wanted a sister. When I started working at Blue Chip, I found Little Angeline and decided to make her my sister. Except now I’m bored and want a puppy instead.
My mom picked up this sock monkey for me out of guilt when she realized I had never seen this classic children’s toy. Ever since then, it’s stayed with me through every move.
When our pet bird passed away, my uncle resorted to taxidermy. This is the bird remains combined with parts from a talking wall bass. He’s starting to smell, so it’s time to find him a new home.
My boyfriend and I fell in love over a giant Jenga game. I gave this to him as a romantic gesture, but Jumbling Towers is no Jenga. I hope someone can find love over this poor excuse for block gaming.
You should be so lucky to receive this limited edition book series. Written and illustrated by 1st grader Amanda Blair, including best seller “The Flower and Strowbary Gardin.”
Spider-sheep, spider-sheep, does whatever a spider-sheep does. It used to stand and poop jelly-beans, but then it broke a leg so now it can only hang upside-down. And poop jelly-beans.
For the die-hard princess or fairy fan who needs a drink on-the-go. Specializes in holding cold liquid, as hot beverages may cause melting. Sturdy lid allows for dancing without spilling.
It’s jelly beans. In a can. You twist it off and they all come out and hit you in the face. It’s just two jelly beans. Huge ones. With springs. Made of cloth. That’s what jelly beans are, right?
Because who wouldn’t want a glow in the dark X-Treme Gulp? Enough said. #biggulpseh #childofthe90s
I had the honor of working on Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid. As we all know, this story doesn’t have a happy ending. We did get some sweet swag out of it, like this fine vest. From me to you. Enjoy.
Color and Cuddle Washable Pony is left over from our “emergency” birthday present stash. Unfortunately, gifting Cuddles to 12-year old girls is not really an option.
When this century was young, Matt Broderick entertained us as Inspector Gadget and became a Happy Meal staple. Made of 8 parts, scoring the complete “Gadget” was a status symbol among Suburban Moms.
I got in a cab that turned into a game show. The driver asked who could name the dog and boy from the Jetsons. I was the first to respond “Astro & Elroy.” My prize? This vastly undersized gold medal.
A co-worker who was moving wanted to put Pig in good hands. Pig’s been my companion ever since. If you ever need cheering up, the look of pure joy on his big blue face will cure your blues right away.
Years ago, I received this chocolate scrabble game. Today it remains unopened. Start it and there’s no going back. I only get one game. If you’re going to eat your words, you’ll have to make it count.
Some people Hustle up the Hancock for a medal… I climbed to the top of a lighthouse and all I got was this jewelry box.
I found this on the bare shelves of a Borders bookstore in the midst of it going out of business. I love cupcakes. I love to eat them, draw them, bake them. So I just had to buy this desperate book.
A gift a true anglophile will adore, this is a rare 1981 Royal Wedding commemorative item, when the “people’s Princess” first began. Allow me to share and pass on the gift of regality.
I was the luckiest little girl in the world because my parents actually got me a pony! I was confused at first, but my dad explained that “pony” was really just a fancy word for “stuffed lion.”
I threw this tiki head against a wall because it scared me. It smashed in half. I glued, rubber banded, and repainted it. It hates me now. It will probably love someone else. Happy Holidays!
The question is not why I have it, but why do you not? This mock Carmen Miranda is a vision. Part bean-bag, part amazing, it’s a must have for all serious collectors.
This game is sure to satisfy the die-hard fan of Springfield’s finest family, chock full of obscure Simpsons trivia. For best results, make sure there’s more than one Simpsons fan in your house.
Before Elmo, there was PM227.3. He didn’t make it past the focus groups. Something about children not being able to ‘connect’ emotionally with his one eye. Psshh! He’s got an eye on you this holiday.
Everyone needs a Little Buddha in their life. Lil’ Buddha says: “A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.”
A mallard, sent from heaven, brought this shoehorn to me. Three quacks from him transformed a lodged pebble in my shoe into an enchanted horn to save the day on that fateful hike.
I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus. And then I saw dad hunting his Reindeer.
Bah, Humbug! You’ve found a member of the BC Naughty List.
