Novelty Gifts

So while browsing around for that outstanding, original, one of a kind unique and unusual gift that would make me the ultimate creative gift-giver of all time (or at least until the next birthday rolled around) I thought  - hey! Why not blog about it? 

And while surfing the world wide web of gift shops I came to the realization, Christmas is not too far away, so am now browsing for that too.

So here are a few of my gift choice ideas I have found to be of good cheer
for you to browse ......

Love the feeling of bare feet on freshly mowed grass? These grass flip flops can give you that feeling anytime, anywhere.

With a quiet nod to the "down under" culture that brought the first flip flops to the world, KUSA takes the everyday flip flop and adds a thick layer of syn-turf that conforms to and is naturally shaped by the individual contours of your feet. In a short time, these flip flops form into a perfect fit for YOUR feet.

With its soft skin and unique aesthetics, the Too Beautiful To Hide Hot Water Bottle lives up to its name.

Perfect gift for the
I Dream of Jeannie fan

"Legendary Sleepwear for Legendary Men"

Two drawstrings let you adjust the fit of the hood to your liking. A pocket next to the hood is the perfect size for tucking in your phone, iPod, or a remote control. Slip your headphone cords through the porthole for tangle-free listening. Best of all, when it's time to change your sheets, the HoodiePillow goes right into the washing machine

This comical clothing container features embroidered knob details and a see-through plastic window that create a picture-perfect stand-in when the wash is still days from being done. When you're charged enough to take on the chore, simply grab this hamper by its concealed straps to easily lug it to the laundromat. With your clothing looking so swell inside this mock washing machine, your bedroom floor will finally be as fresh as your recently laundered linens.

   How cute is this ..... tent!

I stumbled upon this by some accident, and thought my brother would get a little chuckle. Little did I know, his response would be ... I WANT IT.  So guess what he is getting for Christmas/birthday ... his own VW tent! Even my daughter shrieked with excitement! (But she's a teenager; it's probably an in-built reaction.) You'll never have to worry about losing your tent in the park again! What will they think of next?


Officially licensed, this stunning four-man (or lady, lol) tent is a deluxe, full-size replica of the iconic 1965 VW Camper Van synonymous with 60s counterculture. It’s so evocative you can almost hear the Mamas and the Papas singing California Dreamin’ every time you feast your eyes on its beautifully breadloaf-ish form. Indeed we half expected Mama Cass to tumble out when we first saw this groovy Vee-Dub. You’ll be the envy of the campsite!

Factor in two zip-separated double-size rooms, allowing couples to sleep/knit yoghurt/spread the love in private, plus an outer that can be put up first to offer some shelter as you erect the other bits and bobs, and you’re looking at the greatest thing to hit the world of boho living since… well, since the original VW Camper Van. All together now, ‘If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to take your Vee-Dub Camper Tent…

A Quick Spin... VW Camper Van Tent

After watching this vid, my thoughts immediately went to ...... brother, booze, camping ........ and his traveling play tent. I'm hoping to have some great stories to share when he comes back from his next camping trip!

And in continuing with the outdoor theme ....
what about some fun wet water style sports toys 

tons of fun to be had

Need A Hand?
Go 20,000 leagues under the shower with this friendly squid, equipped with nine, adjustable tentacles for gripping your shampoo, soap and washing extras, without disappearing into the bathroom void! Wildly convenient, this functional creature even holds your bottles upside down, so you conquer every last drop,


Designed to look like a giant piece of file paper complete with printed lines, holes and red margins on both sides, doodle duvet comes with its own set of 8 wash-out color pens. Which means that you can jot down late-night thoughts, draw a masterpiece, write a story or leave a message – then wash your duvet cover for a totally fresh start all over again...endlessly!

and if really stuck for a gift ....  or wanting to surprise a loved one away from home  - a gift card is the ideal way to go.
