2. A baby beer bottle for changing the definition of the term "milk drunk" and seriously shock your friends when they see your baby drinking from it after having a few themselves.

Promising review: "We got this for a friend's child who starting teething. It's a great modern joke from the old idea of putting whiskey on the baby's teeth. We also felt bad when going to their house for drinks that the baby wasn't able to join in. This way he has his own Lil' Lager and we have ours. It's a great gift and well built. It's still good as new. A fun gift for anyone really. —N. MaggioGet it from Amazon for $12.99.

I should have bought two just in case one gets lost or for the double whammy! Seriously, this thing is good and harmless fun. :D" —some dudeGet it from Amazon for $4.06.
