Holiday Gift Guide 2008

I'm always searching for fun, unique gifts for my family and so this year I thought I'd make a little guide and share with you some of my best finds! Each item contains a link to a site where you can place your order. I'm not too worried about spoiling anyone's surprises, since based on the number of comments they leave no one mentioned here actually reads my blog very often anyway.

1. For Pete and Mika:
Tired of Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit, and Monopoly? Here's a fun family game called "Gassy Gus" that's sure to entertain your family for hours. Players use food cards to force their opponents to pump Gassy Gus's head up and down. Each pump inflates his belly a little more, until finally Pete (oops I mean Gassy Gus) blasts gas. Nose plugs not included.

2. For Nate:
This essential kitchen gadget is perfect for the young singles on your shopping list. It brings new meaning to the word gourmet, taking the humblest of dinner foods and making it into a delectable delight--all without the use of a microwave! If you decide you need one of these inventive gifts for your family click here to order the pop-up hot dog cooker.

3. For Matt:
This classic gift is for the party animals on your know the one who presses snooze 47 times each morning before getting up. Presenting the one and only tantrum throwing alarm clock! This little beauty pounds its fists and shouts for you to wake up in a whining voice (no it's not one of my kids for sale). And don't even think about pressing snooze--the more you press it, the louder and more annoying it gets.

4. For Kristina:
For the fitness enthusiast in your life. For me that would be my sister K. She has lost 50 lbs. in the last several months and even still she continues to be an inspiration to the rest of us with her daily work-out schedule! Feeding on her healthy zeal I just know that when she sees this product to help get her pet fish into shape too, that she will just be so excited that it might make her buy a pet fish.

Watch the video for a demo.

5. For Glen:
This gift is an essential item for the golfer in your life. Notice that this guy in the picture just looks like he's shining his club...but in actuality he's peeing straight into the hollow shaft of UroClub, a fake golf club designed by a board certified urologist! Never again will your golfer have to stealthily steal away to the woods for a little relief. It's discreet, sanitary, and easy to clean (his job, not mine). A woman's version is now being developed.
Hurry place your orders now...only 17 more days to go!

LOL! Thanks so much Lara, you have just saved me HOURS of shopping time. A couple of these gifts would be perfect for some of my loved ones!!!!

Deon said...

All I have to say is that you are hysterical, and EW.

K said...

Excuse me, but I leave you comments ALL the time. GO check sister.

By the way, I am well on my way to my end of the year weight goal of gaining all the weight back! (It's a much easier goal than my previous one)

I've always said if I ever get a pet, it will be a fish. Looks like a fun gift to me.

Karey said...

I am going to second the EWW comment! And thanks for gathering these ideas! Now I know what to get everyone on my list. By the way, these things are free right? :)

Lara said...

Nice job Kristina...retroactively adding lots of comments! Not that I'm complaining or anything. I take comments whenever they come. :)

Andie said...

Sweet, since Ryan was wondering what to get me for Christmas....I'll show him that hot dog cooker for sure! ;-) You crack me up!

Steve (and not mom) said...

For Heaven's sakes where was # 5 when I still golfed? Probably could've save more that a few trees and bushs on golf courses nationwide.

Thanks for the brilliant ideas!

Love, Dad

Here is a comment, which I promised to leave. That's all.
Okay, I will leave an actual comment. I am glad to be known as the family Party Animal. It's true, I was up twice in the wee hours of the morning last night. I was partying with Lincoln while he was screaming/refusing to sleep.

Charlene said...

LOL!! love the golf club! I have some family members in mind that will get a kick out of that gift!

Pete said...

Hey, I resemble that! It's a medical problem . . .
