1. A baguette-shaped wrist rest, because carpal tunnel shan't keep you from ~getting that bread~.

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.Promising review: "I'm using this as week speak, and it still cracks me up every day. Every time someone new walks into my office they think it is real bread — it is incredibly realistic looking. It is softer than any wrist rest I have ever had, I have carpal tunnel and I'm in software where typing isn't really an option, so to have something that is incredibly comfortable, and makes me smile every time I look at it is incredibly worth it! Don't underestimate the value in having something that makes the mundane a little more fun. And FYI, the packaging will also crack you up!" —Daryl-Ann

Promising review: "I bought these as a joke but they actually have a really impressive formula. They have a semi satin/matte finish and they last ALL day. I mean all day. Not blotchy at all. Plus it causes everyone I share one with to have a nice chuckle." —Msgirl08

4. A screaming goat figurine that'll help you release some stress (and make every head turn in your direction). Just press the button on the stump he stands on to hear those bleats that can't be beat.

So i highly recommend this as a gift for anyone, or yourself. The goat has a beautiful figure and a flawless jawline. And the scream, oh the screaaaammm. 10/10" —Ceciliab123

5. A cheeky baby book for scientists in the making that'll entertain tiny tots and adults alike — and make the other parents in your circle slowly blink in shock at your amazing at-home early education.

Get it from Amazon or Barnes and Noble for $9.99, or a local bookseller through IndieBound.The Baby University series comes in tons of other installments too, like (deep breath) Rocket Science, General Relativity, Newtonian Physics, Quantum Computing, Organic Chemistry and Nuclear Physics, and Astrophysics.Promising review: "I came across this book series while making a baby registry for my third child and pre-ordered it out of sheer novelty. Quantum Physics For Babies is a very simple book... but really, what do you expect? It's a science book made specifically for babies & small children. The quality of the board book is excellent — nice and sturdy. Mr. Ferrie does an excellent job of simply explaining the bare bones of Quantum Physics. I'm ashamed to say I've never been much of a science or math person myself (I LOVE art & history) and reading this book to my son was actually a learning experience for me as well! My 9-month-old wasn't too interested in it but my three year old was, and he asked me lots of questions. For me this book was worth the purchase (I think this would be a SUPER cute baby shower gift for 'nerdy' parents) and look forward to checking out the rest in the Baby University series." —H_Burg

Get it from Amazon for $9.98.Promising review: "Hangs in our downstairs bathroom as a gag to the delight of all our guests.
