    3. A hair follicle and flesh plush doll sure to make your kids glad they're being raised by a dermatologist.


    Promising review: "I got this for a dermatologist and she absolutely adores it. If I had to complain, I'd suggest they make other skin tones in addition to this one, but all of the I Heart Guts plushies are great for people who aren't grossed out by physiology!" —JC

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    4. An absurdly amusing bubble dome umbrella for people who hate when it's raining cats and dogs but wouldn't mind if it'd *finally* start raining men.


    Promising review: "I got this a gag gift and I somewhat expected it to be dinky and more for laughs. But it is actually a really awesome umbrella! So on top of the laughs it is being used for it's original purpose. I love it!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    5. A soy wax candle that'll smell like Grandma's kitchen (on cookie day, not liverwurst day).


    Promising review: "This candle is everything! All the love of your grandma is in this candle. It's a mix of all the best Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even Easter dinner all in one candle. Do not think twice – buy it. 100% worth it." —Kelli H.

    Get it from Homesick for $29.95.

    6. A serial killer coloring book which, unnervingly, has a surprising number of grandmothers inside – for people who like rather ~sketchy~ stress-reliving activities.

    Amazon, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Exactly what I expected to get! Very nice paper and the backs of each picture is blank so you can rip them out or use markers without worrying about them bleeding through if you want to!" —Amanda Hichue

    Get it from Amazon for $7.92.

    7. A pack of six strange sodas that'll be a brilliant gift the next time a birthday comes around. Hopefully the person you give these to is able to enjoy the moment and drink it all in.


    This selection includes Bacon, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Ranch Dressing, Sweet Corn, Pumpkin Pie, and Buffalo Wing.

    Promising review: "These taste absolutely terrible, but we had an awesome time trying them while camping. If you're looking for something to do that's fun at a party, this is it! One bottle could be tried by probably 10 people." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $23.69.

    8. A giant flour tortilla blanket – nothing is gonna make you feel more warm and cheesy than wrapping yourself up in this treat!


    Promising review: "This blanket came with the vacuum packaging, which guarantees cleanness through shipping. It is ultra soft. Although it is thin, it is a perfect coating for a little rest." —Edward

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in nine styles).

    9. A wine bottle stopper you can pull out to save your drink during long as you aren't too ~chicken~ to show this thing off.


    Promising review: "This bottle stopper is awesome. It has a tapered body, so it fits into every bottle I have tried so far. That taper also means that it is easy to push the stopper in to get a good seal. On top of the functionality, it also always gets a good chuckle out of guests." —D. Gallardo

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    10. A personalized gift wrap to *really* celebrate someone special – if they're able to ~face~ that much affection, that is.


    The only thing you need to make this wrapping paper happen is an image of the face you want to upload and a tiny bit of patience (it can take up to 14 days to have the paper manufactured).

    Promising review: "Best. Paper. Ever. My wife knew which gifts were hers on Christmas for sure!" —Firebox Customer

    Get it from Firebox for $18.99+ (available in three sizes).

    11. A strawberry toilet seat that'll look ~berry~ cute in your bathroom. You know, if absurdly adorable toilet decor is your kinda ~jam~., Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my toilet room. I liked that it gives me great color and is easy to put on and clean. I definitely recommend this if you love strawberries and enjoy fun things!" —UTBlue

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 42 styles).

    12. A pizza box of socks so you can give your cheesiest friend a gift they can really sink their teeth (well, feet) into.


    This box includes four pairs of socks.

    Promising review: "Normally socks are a pretty crap gift for Christmas, but not in this case. I got a better reaction from these socks than I did from any other gift I gave this year. Everything arrived in perfect condition, and looked exactly as it did in the photos. The presentation is fantastic and such a great idea. That was basically the whole reason I bought them, but the recipient said she loves wearing goofy, colorful socks, so this gift will be appreciated beyond the initial fun of opening for the very first time." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in two sizes).

    13. A cat tongue brush your cat is gonna have a fur-ocious affection for.


    Honestly! Cats apparently dig this thing. When cats groom others (i.e. when you get stuck being licked repeatedly by their torturously scratchy tongue) they're creating a "pack sent." Use this and your cat will think you're a part of the club! Plus, strange as it may seem, it's great for grooming and keeping your cat relaxed.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a joke but the cat seems to like it a lot." —Simon B.

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in two colors).

    14. A box of rainbow fire packets that'll add a little color to your camping trip...even if it seems like there's no way these actually work.,

    Fun fact, I've tried these and they *do* work! It's magic, ya'll. That's the only answer.

    Promising review: "These things are so awesome! HUGE hit with the kids. I can't wait to take some camping – the colors are gorgeous! We've been using them for about a month now. Teals, greens, and blues are visible toward the top parts of the flames, and in the innermost parts of the fire, you can see ultraviolet and deep pinks. Ordering two more right now and will be using these all summer!" —VWatson

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $10.95.

    15. A yoga goat game for party people who aren't ~kidding~ around when it comes to game night.


    The game includes pose cards, a score pad, an inflatable goat, and a rule book. The goal is to complete the most yoga challenges...without being too ~sheepish~ to bend and snap.

    Get it from Firebox for $33.99.

    16. An RBG waffle maker that'll help make a ~supreme~ breakfast – waffles with a side of *justice*!


    Promising review: "I love RBG. This waffle maker is super cute and works well." —Kelly Perry

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    17. A fruit tart cat bed with removable fruits and a cushioned crust to give your four-legged sweetheart a gift you're both sure to love ~berry~ much.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    Not only does my cat sleep in this every day, she also loves playing fetch with the lightweight fruit. I often find her rolling the blueberries around the apartment. I dig having a pet bed that doubles as daily entertainment.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in five styles).

    18. A book on bad taxidermy you can leave out to let your roommate know the decor in your place could be way, way worse.


    Promising review: "If I could give this book 10 stars I would! I bought this for my husband for his birthday and proceeded to buy five more copies to give to his friends because he thought it was so hysterical! It definitely takes a dry sense of humor to enjoy this book but it is worth the money! I wish I could include the video I took of my husband's reaction! He was laughing so hard he was crying!" —Julie K.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    19. A box of miracle fruit tablets – mind-boggling candies that'll turn your taste buds upside down. This is a fun family activity that'll never go ~sour~ (although technically the effects wear off after around 30 minutes).

    Via, Via

    This packet includes 10 tablets.

    Promising review: "My friends and I tried these at my sleepover, and let me tell you, we went to flavor town. Ours lasted 30 minutes, which was the perfect amount of time to try all the fruits and other things we wanted. Lemons are delicious!!!" —Picky Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    20. A festive plunger for decorating your bathroom if you think it's ~crappy~ that Christmas isn't all year long.


    Promising review: "I bought this as a white elephant gift and it definitely drew some attention! It was funny and a constant topic of conversation for the receiver! It is the perfect size for a desk!" —Adam and Andrea Burton

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    21. A laser engraved spoon that'll make your brunch squad quake in fear.


    Promising review: "This is made with good quality material and the engraving looks good. It's a great gift." —B406

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    22. A grisly garden gnome sure to make any dead plants in your garden look less out of place.

    Chris And Jane's Place

    Get it from Chris and Jane's Place on Etsy for $29.

    23. A potato pal so you can send a preciously personalized gift to the~stud~ in your life.


    To customize, simply upload a photo and add in a message with 50 characters or less!

    Promising review: "This is such a random thing, I couldn’t resist getting it for my friend as a Christmas gift. We always buy each other silly gifts. I think I outdid myself this year. Everybody loved it. I can’t wait to see when it starts to sprout or how she looks when it shrivels. The picture is actually a thin sticker that they put on the potato. The message you can have put on the other side looked like someone with nice penmanship wrote it with a permanent marker." —3000gtvr4

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    24. Donner Dinner Party, a board game that's certainly gonna be everybody's ~taste~.


    ...I may be wrong about that.

    Promising review: "Donner Dinner Party is similar in style to well-known games like Mafia, Werewolf, and Bang! You are given secret roles at the start: most of the party are pioneers and some of them are cannibals. The goal is to survive seven nights by hunting for enough food to appease the party. If not enough food is found, or if someone poisons all the food, your party will have to vote to eat someone for that night. The pioneers will need to eliminate all of the cannibals in the vote, or continue to hunt for enough food in the next round to prevent all the pioneers from being eaten.

    We like playing Donner Dinner Party more than Mafia now because it allows the entire group to continue playing, even after they are voted off. That is one gripe I have always had with games life Mafia, Werewolf, and Bang!: if you die you have to sit out, and that's no fun. With Donner Dinner Party, you can continue playing the game as a ghost which can lead to some really fun times. We highly recommend trying the game out." —Nathan L.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.13.

    25. A lumberjack outfit that'll make your four-legged friend look like the foreman of a lumber mill for some unnecessary (but adorable) reason.

    Amazon, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    That handsome, hairless cat on the right is my baby boy Chuck. He occasionally wears clothes to stay warm and this outfit is a family favorite! It's easy for him to move in, stays clean when he uses the bathroom, and makes him look like Hugh Jackman in a movie about life in the wilderness (if you squint...a lot).

    Get it from Amazon for $13.06+ (available in sizes XS–XL).

    26. A pimple popper which is sure to be, and I can't stress this enough, impussible to stop playing.


    Promising review: "I gave this as a gift to my sister-in-law as she loves pimple popping videos. It's gross but fills her satisfaction! It's oozing and fun." —Aisha

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98 (available in two skin tones).

    27. A mystery Cutetitos pet that, despite how creepy it is to throw a lovable stuffed animal into a tortilla, is totally gonna redefine the term "cute enough to eat."


    Promising review: "I am getting a little obsessed with these already. I bought one for each of my kids and my nieces for Christmas. I secretly opened one so I could see what they look like and they are so soft and cute. I love that they each come with a card that tells things about them and that there is a collection. I think these will be a big hit. If not, I might keep them all for myself. :)" —LauraJ

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    28. A pet rock so you can have a hassle-free pet that really, ahem, rocks.


    Promising review: "He's really easy. Loves walks, chasing after birds, and especially eating me out of house and home. I can't keep enough food around to feed him. 10/10 pet." —Chase Jacobsen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    29. A pack of six cat magnets sure to make your roommate say, "Yeah we have to keep these up when my parents come to visit?"


    Promising review: "Sometimes you need to laugh. I keep my house respectable; I have area rugs, knick knacks, and pictures of my kids on the walls. My house screams 'a mature adult lives here'. The thing is, I'm not a mature adult. I'm a 31-year-old Mom to three and I need to break free from packing lunches and paying bills. I need to allow my whimsical side to show.

    So, I bought cat butt magnets. When I open my refrigerator and see these magnets, I feel satisfied. Like I'm allowing a bit of me to shine through all the mature adulty-ness that I have to display on a day-to-day basis. Thank you, kitty butt magnets!" —Carla Blalock

    Get them from Amazon for $11.81+ (available in five styles).

    30. A tea infuser that'll steep your tea without things getting all Nessy.


    Promising review: "I love little Nessie things. And I love tea. This was a match made in heaven. This little guy holds a lot of loose leaf tea or a single tea bag. The neck is long enough you can literally stir your tea with him without burning fingertips. It's easy to clean and simple to use." —Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70.

    31. A hot potato game with a shocking twist that's seriously gonna raise the stakes the next time you have a game night at your place.,

    Promising review: "This is great. You will want to record it as you will definitely laugh. The ‘Lame’ has no shock but sound, and the ‘Normal’ and ‘Extreme’ appear to be the same. That sound it makes is kind of eerie so be sure to play in the dark and the woods. It’s not bad of a shock but more of a ‘I wasn’t expecting it.’ Mine was dropped/thrown every single time into the grass and never had issues. Bring several sets of batteries as they can go quick. You will have lots of fun; for about 20-30 minutes." —Matt

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    32. A foot hammock for people who believe in literally putting their feet up and relaxing (as long as their boss isn't around).


    Promising review: "I love this little hammock!! I use it at work underneath my cubicle. I had been using a recycling bin turned on it’s side to prop my feet up, but then I didn’t recycle and the cleaning staff kept putting it back upright at night which I felt bad about. I stumbled onto this while searching on Amazon and it’s just perfect! I can tighten or loosen the strings so that it hangs as high or low as I want and it’s pretty comfortable. It's also fun to tell my coworkers I have a hammock for my feet. :) I work in a professional setting but it’s a casual/relaxed atmosphere – I don’t think anyone cares or notices it anyways because of the black color and it being so discrete under the desk." —Cait M.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two colors).

    33. And finally, a shrimp pillow that's sure to have you drifting off to dreamland in no time, no matter how ~fishy~ it looks on your flight.


    Promising review: "This pillow changed my life. Birthday for someone you're in love with? Wanna show your teacher you appreciate them? Does your hairdresser give you solid looks for solid prices and you need a Christmas gift for them? Does your neck need support late at night when you're playing scary video games in the dark at 2am when you should be studying for finals? This shrimp neck pillow was the answer to all of those questions. It's so comfortable. It's so fashionable. It's so iconic. No one will ever disrespect you with this on your neck. If you have doubts, take my word for it. This pillow is where it's at." —McHoot

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    The look you'll get when you show off your new *treasures* to your friends and family:
