3. Or a clear shower curtain with pockets for people who only have eyes for their screens.

Just, uhh, make sure your front camera is covered before using this.

Promising review: "It's exactly what's described in the description and it works great. Although one thing that you could add is a few more slots lower because when taking a bath the lowest slot you have is still too high to be able to watch my Netflix comfortably. But other than that, it's exactly what I ordered and came quick and packaged fine. Would recommend to friends! Thanks." —Rosetta

Get it from Amazon for $24.96.

5. A field guide to hipster animals, so you can identify them on the spot when visiting trendy establishments.

Ten Speed Press,

Promising review: "OMG! This book is crazy! I love the meh horse the best. :-) They are all so cute, and it's just funny. I would read before letting young kids read the book because there's a little bit of cussing." —Melissa's Rambling

Get it from Amazon for $10.20, Barnes & Noble for $10.93, or through a local seller here.


7. A sexy (?) googly-eyed thong for turning your junk into a trunk.

Promising review: "It's awesome. My boyfriend and I laughed for a good hour after unpacking it. Every time our eyes met the elephant's it'd start all over again." —Heather Alvarado

Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

8. A skeleton hand reaching out from the grave — to hold your jewelry.

Promising review: "I love this so much! It's just odd enough to get looks but it's also beautiful. It goes very well in my semi-macabre themed house. I especially like how the 'bones' are connected." —asubtlepoison

Get it from Amazon for $45.99.


11. A pair of fish shoes you're going to flipper over.

Promising review: "I got these for my obsessed bass fisherman husband. He absolutely loved them! He fishes bass tournaments during the summer and he called them his new lucky tournament shoes! We will see how well they hold up — they seem pretty sturdy and should hold together well." —Ashley Z

Get them from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes 4.5–11.5).

12. A garden Godzilla to take care of your infestation if gnomes aren't your thing.

Army men not included.

Promising review: "I am a fan of Godzilla. I am not a fan of gnomes. This little garden sculpture is a win/win for me! Gardenzilla is well made and expertly painted. I'm very pleased. Gnomes beware!" —Mahala Marshall Rood

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

13. A beach ball that's eye-deal for freaking out all the other pool goers.

Big Mouth

Promising review: "Need a giant eyeball (or two?) These are just the ticket. They are large (take quite a while to blow up) and a pair of them is quite startling." —N. Miracle

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.


15. A set of brain-section coasters that form a full brain when you stack them. Dexter would love these.

Promising review: "I'm a pretty big fan of these coasters. They're clear thick glass and they have four rubbery feet on them so they don't slip around and so they have some space between them when they are stacked. The best part about them is that you get a bunch of coasters — standard coaster quantity is usually four, so I was able to supply my entire office with coasters and have a couple left over for me." —Megan F.

Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $27.97 or ThinkGeek for $19.99.


22. A tortilla blanket so you can turn yourself into a burrito and hide from the world on bad days. Burritos are never sad.

Promising review: "The coolest blanket I've ever seen. It's not a huge, queen-size blanket but definitely big enough for a throw blanket. Love how soft it is and nicely made. Worth every penny!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $39.95.


23. A DIY snowman kit that lets you create a little happy snowman that you can then sadistically watch slowly melt.

Promising review: "Bought this little guy as a gift for my 12-year-old nephew. By the end of Christmas Day, all of the adults were fighting over who would get to build the next snowman. The tin consists of white putty and lots of fun snowman parts. Simply build and dress the snowman and leave the room. Within an hour, the snowman will begin to 'melt' or change its form. Within a few hours, it will look like it's completely melted. It's hilarious to see what shape the snowman will take after the melting process." —HipShopper

Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

24. A ray gun nose trimmer for zapping away any unwanted hairs like a hero from a futuristic sci-fi.

Promising review: "There's nothing quite like starting the day by shoving a ray gun up my nose and pulling the trigger. In all seriousness, this is a fun way to add a little levity to your routine, at least if you've gotten to the point that you need a nose and ear hair trimmer like I do. This one is similar to most every rotary one I've used, and works well enough." —A. von Marschall

Get it from Amazon for $12.48 or Firebox for $18.49.


28. Fly push pins so all your notes and pictures can be like flies on the wall.

Promising review: "I picked the flies just for the odd whimsy of having bugs on my door bulletin board. Makes me smile to see the plastic flies holding my papers and photos — go figure!" —Deborah Simons

Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $12.

29. A pair of sweatpants inspired by one of the jazziest designs in history: a paper cup.

Promising review: "These pants are cool. The print is nice. The fabric is somewhat silky. The legs are a little tight with elastic at the bottoms. I’ll probably get another goofy pair." —Smart Consumer

Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in S–XXL and 25 other colors).
