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


    Get it from Amazon for $11.59.

    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

    2. AND a corgi butt mousepad with a plush 'n' cheeky hiney for the cutest possible carpal tunnel prevention.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "I ADORE this mouse pad!!! I work as a software developer and was starting to experience the beginnings of carpel tunnel. This has totally stopped the numbness in my hand! And as a corgi mom of two bouncing corgi boys, this was a must have!" —LP

    3. A to-do list of what you haaaave to get done today (with a column for what to procrastinate also) — that might make your cubicle neighbor raise an eyebrow... and then ask to join you for that drink.


    Get it from Amazon for $8 (available in 15 notepad formats).

    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.

    Urban Outfitters

    "...Where did that noise COME FROM?" And it comes with a 32-page, illustrated booklet all about goats, making this product the G.O.A.T. itself.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.76.

    Promising review: "This little piece of screaming plastic has created an excellent outlet for resolving frustrations in our home. Every time a conflict or struggle arises we push the little goat, get a gratifying screech, chuckle and move on throughout our day. No regrets on purchasing this. When you get one, get four or five because you're going to want to share with family and friends." —Amazon Customer

    5. A clear window you can install right in your fence that'll make passersby double back in excitement to give your pupper a friendly wave.

    Squirrel-watching just got a whole lot easier. All the hardware needed for installation is included!

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    Promising review: "We have three of these in our fence. Once you do your first one, they take less than 10 minutes to install and work great. Our dogs absolutely love them and people walking past on the greenway that goes behind our fence always have a smile when they see the dogs looking out at them." —Ernie Behrle

    6. 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 for $8.39.

    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

    7. A pack of anatomical pens that'll ~no bones about it~ freak people out when they ask to borrow a writing utensil.


    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "These pens are phenomenal! I was a little worried that the grips would not be good on them and would be uncomfortable but they are actually designs where it makes it easier to hold his hand and they write so well! Not just a novelty gift but an amazing pen!" —Michael Prior

    8. A set of hand-crocheted cat butt coasters, because anyone who puts a condensation-covered glass right on a wood table is an ~asshole~, and deserves to know it.


    Get a set of four from Amazon for $23.

    Promising review: "I love these. They are a perfect set of coasters for a Bob's Burgers fan, or anyone who finds the open display of the feline posterior nature of these to be funny. Great quality, way better at handling drinks that "sweat" than any other coasters I have." —BW

    9. A hilarious (and actually useful) post–zombie apocalypse survival guide, including over 80 recipes, food scavenging tips, and illustrated guides on living in the wilderness, whether the undead are after you (and your tasty brain) or not. Be prepared for bookshelf-browsers to have some questions.


    Get it from Amazon for $14.85.

    Promising review: "This is fantastic!! I got it for a friends zombie bug-out bag Christmas gift and now I want to keep it for myself. The writing is witty and funny all while providing great practical information. Then illustrations are done very well and are easy to follow. I love how the lay out starts are the beginning when food and supply are plentiful and ends with survival for the 'long haul.' Will be purchasing another one." —J

    10. A 2'x3' print of "The Timeless Art of Seduction" that'll really speak for itself when it comes to your interior design taste.


    Get it from Amazon for $8.39.

    Promising review: "Hangs in our downstairs bathroom as a gag to the delight of all our guests. I think it is even slowly growing on the wife, who could care less about Seinfeld. Always gets a reaction and is of good quality. P.S. That wood looking border is not a frame but part of the poster itself. So honestly, any cheapo frame will work fine on this and still look good." —cjones2989

    11. A pair of hairy-good slippers you're basically contractually obligated to wear while binge watching the whole extended edition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. See how long it takes for someone to notice you're wearing them.


    They're so cozy, you might get in the ~hobbit~ of wearing them on the regular.

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95 (they fit up to a size 8.5; also available in a size up to men's 11).

    Come for the LoTR puns, stay for this delightful Amazon review:

    Promising review: "Got these for my mom during her hospital stay. We had fun with the nurses and doctors, hiding my mom's slippered feet under the sheets, and then complaining of swollen feet. When they pulled back her sheets, most of them gasped and then laughed and laughed. Its nice to have some humor during difficult times. " —Wendy Salerno

    12. A creative journal chock-full of prompts and activities designed to spark your creativity and bring out your inner...well...weirdo. This makes a great gift, even if you get a strange look when it's first unwrapped.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.30.

    Promising review: "A lot of fun! Unlike your typical journal, You're Weird has a lot of fun drawings, questions, and activities that help inspire and prod you to keep journaling. Every page is full of fun drawings and borders that are ripe for coloring when cutting loose after an hour-long strategy meeting. I got a copy at our local bookstore and plan on ordering another copy just for coloring. I'm sure even seasoned journal keepers will enjoy this book." —Jay Saenz

    13. A corgi butt coin-purse-slash-wallet cashiers will love when you pull it out to pay.


    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    Promising review: "I use this for a dice bag for Dungeons and Dragons and it is perfect. It's adorable and also somewhat acts as a stress ball. Can also make a good little pillow if you need it." —Autumn

    14. A surprisingly soft tortilla blanket so you can wrap yourself up like the couch burrito you were always meant to be — and surprise the delivery guy with your new look.


    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in four sizes and nine colors and styles, including pizza and waffle patterns).

    Promising review: "This blanket is soft and warm. My 3-year-old will say 'make me a burrito' when she wants to be covered while laying on the couch and it's probably the cutest thing ever. The blanket is big enough for my husband who's 6'1 to cover his body and share with me, which I was surprised about honestly since it's round. I'd definitely buy this blanket again! The price was great too!' —Shannon Swiger

    One reviewer even gave the blanket to her nephew half-wrapped in foil so it looked like a giant burrito. HOW CUTE IS THAT?!

    15. A deep-cleansing, 24K gold–infused mask that'll change colors ~right before your eyes~ from gold to white as it dries on your skin, clearing out pores, removing dead skin cells, and refining your skin's texture.

    "Wait, wasn't that stuff on your face gold like two minutes ago?" your shocked roommate will ask. And that's in addition to *your* reaction at how soft and clear your skin will feel after using this.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.78.

    Promising review: "Holy crap! This stuff is incredible. It smells great, looks neat, and makes your skin feel super soft! But the best part? All my blackheads are gone after one use! Unreal! I'm buying all my friends this." —Ellen Gregory

    16. A plush dog toy shaped like a beer bottle (or wine, tequila, vodka, etc.) sure to make you wonder for a second if your ~booze hound~ has been raiding your liquor cabinet.

    Yes, the dog above *is* cuddling with a "Grrrona" — they ALL have punny names like that!

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ each (available in sizes S–XL and 13 alcohol types).

    Promising review: "Our dog LOVES this. The squeaker is sturdy and the bottle does not fall apart with our aggressive chewer. He doesn’t chew on this as much as other toys, which probably helps. He loves to play fetch and lick this toy." —Leonardo A. Garcia

    17. A reversible sequin pillow you can run your hands over to reveal the hidden face beneath. "Why do I have a Nic Cage pillow? The question is why DON'T you have a Nic Cage pillow, Deborah!"


    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in seven Nic Cage colors/designs, plus 36 other colors and designs).

    Promising review: "I bought this pillow for my mom for Mother’s Day because she made the mistake of telling me she liked Nicolaus Cage (let’s be honest, who doesn’t), but nevertheless it is perfect for the couch in her RV. Quality is decent, the picture is awesome, and I, nor she, have any complaints. We love it and think it’s hysterical." —Angie

    This is just the case, so you can get a top-rated 16x16" pillow insert to stuff inside for $7.99.

    18. A king cube–size skull ice mold that'll make people suddenly look down and wonder if their glass is filled with scotch... or *actual* poison.


    Each silicone mold makes two at a time!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "I was looking just to make fun ice cubes for parties and came across this. I was a little skeptical at first but followed the directions and wow! The ice came out in skull shapes perfectly. Removal from the silicone tray was simple. These are great for parties or for everyday use as they last longer than regular ice cubes." —RJM 73

    19. A sheet mask — FOR YOUR BUTT, because why should your face have all the fun? It'll moisturize and tone (hello aloe and chamomile), with one sheet for each cheek. 🍑


    They're available in four varieties:

    * Slap It (retexturing & detoxifying with caffeine)

    * Squeeze It (brightening & rejuvenating with citrus)

    * Shake It (firming & illuminating with marine algae)

    * Bite It (hydrating and toning with collagen)

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95 each. You can also get a set of all four for $32 (aka you save $1 per mask)

    Promising review: "I love these because great skin isn't limited to just your face and neither should the products that facilitate it! These definitely infuse the area with essence like a facial sheet and offer a moisturizing, gently tightening effect so you know they're working! I have tried other products designed for the same area and these were by far the best and least messy." —fountainsoda

    20. An eraser you're ~van Gogh-ing~ to love — especially when it makes all your sketching 101 classmates whisper to each other " that an ear?"


    Get it from Amazon for $12.37.

    Promising review: "My husband loves this EARaser. His old one finally wasted away to nothing so I bought him a new one. He does art every day and says this is the best eraser." —Hannah

    21. A trio of flasks masquerading as beauty product tubes that *might* make people wonder why you're surreptitiously pouring moisturizer into your cup.

    Get a set of three (plus a funnel) from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "These are amazing! you fill them up all the way and they really feel like there is lotion in there. They don't leak and are inconspicuous" —Nat_jax

    22. A pair of dress socks featuring Dwight Schrute wearing the CPR dummy mask so you can tug up your pant leg in an important meeting and get your work spouse to break down laughing.


    If this isn't one of your favorite The Office scenes, you're just wrong.

    Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in black and grey).

    Promising review: "These socks are just like what is pictured. They are very detailed and the stitching seems to be of a high quality. My wife absolutely loved them." —Kevin Gordon

    23. An oven mitt you can have hanging innocently on a kitchen hook before taking out a tray of your famous brownies.


    Of course you're only joking — except perhaps in states where recreational marijuana is legal.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five oven mitt designs).

    24. A Ramona Singer eyes sleep mask that, at *first* glance, will trick people into thinking you're actually awake...and maybe walking down a runway making some very intense eye contact with no one.

    Esther and Opal

    Yes, this Ramona from Real Housewives of New York. WHOMST else?!

    Get it from Esther and Opal on Etsy for $14.99.

    25. An extra large porcelain mug ideal for any potty mouths of your acquaintance. For best results, sip out of it while maintaining eye contact.


    Reviewers agree this makes an *amazing* (and fought over) White Elephant gift!

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "1) Only use this for coffee, nothing else - trust me.

    2) It adds tons of additional flavors to your morning coffee.

    3) If coffee makes you poop, then this cup adds loads of irony.

    4) It makes your photos more interesting." —B Dub

    26. A squirrel feeder shaped like a unicorn head for some photo ops and backyard entertainment of ~mythological~ proportions.


    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    Promising review: "My daughter loves unicorns and purchased this as a Christmas gift for my dad. We had so much fun watching the squirrels use it that we bought another as a gift for another family member, and one for our house. The squirrels figure it out quickly and come back over and over until it's empty." —MHite

    27. A pair of skeleton hand hair clips people will compliment you on...until they get a closer look. Then they're compliment you even more on your spooky taste year-round!


    Get a pair from Amazon for $4.67.

    Promising review: "Obsessed!! I have seen these from celebrity stylist used in clients hair and are more the. Double the price. These look exactly the same! They will be in my hair all October long!!" —TorriTravels00

    28. And a shrimp neck pillow that'll keep your airplane seat mates at a...respectful distance. This is the only acceptable way to bring seafood on an airplane, btw!


    I've bought this as a gift and it's really great in real life!

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    Promising review: "What's not to like about this? Gave it as a gift, & the look of puzzled shock was priceless. The next day, it was in use in the car. Terrifyingly beautiful!" —Eric L.

    Careful with that whiplash now.
