cratejoy.com

Every month, your significant bone collector will get a literal box of assorted bones, as well as other bone accoutrements. It's call the Bone Box. People really seem to like it.

Promising review: "Took my time gentling opening the box, everything was wrapped so carefully. I love the playing cards with 54 different skeletons on them, and the Coyote Canine teeth are awesome, then I lifted a total prize from the box, a European Rabbit Skull, which is a fantastic addition to my collection. Excellent quality, but now I have to wait until February for the next one. Can Skulls Unlimited do Bone Box weekly? This is a terrific subscription." —Lori

amazon.com

Promising review: "Just as funny as reviews imply! I bought it to leave in the dorm bathroom, since it needs something of this sort. I absolutely love it-the illustrations of the positions are beautiful, simple, and non-graphic (despite what they are of!). The text is humorous, and the meditational advice looks sound. 10/10, would definitely recommend!" —IndigoMontez

Get it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble for $10.05.

Promising review: "I sent this to my husband as a 'just because' gift, and he loved it! It's fun, flavorful, and an exciting gift to receive.

19. A giant (and hilariously long-legged) teddy bear, for the significant other who's obsessed with weird internet ephemera.

Savannah / Via amazon.com

Promising review: "Hideous! The legs are like four feet long making the bear look like a creepy Gumby thing. I got this for Valentine's Day and would have rather had a cheaper, more proportional bear... I mean this isn't even cute." —Savannah

^^Yeah, but now it's a FAMOUS creepy Gumby thing!

Get it from Amazon for $109.99.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I got these as a gift for a family member who is a 'wine aficionado' partly for a laugh but also for their great concept. When she opened them I did get a huge laugh but once she realized what they were and the concept, she was amazed. I have received confirmation from her that they work wonders and truly provide an airtight seal. So now all the corks can go into the trash can after they come out of the bottle and a wine condom goes on!" —Thomas

Get a set of six from Amazon for $13.97.

urbanoutfitters.com

It also comes with a booklet full of goat facts!
