Make your wrapping paper the meatiest and creepiest

When you’re wrapping presents this year you’ve got a big choice.

Do you want to use Meat Wrapping Paper:

Or would you rather use Creepy Wrapping Paper:

As you can see from these GIFs, both styles are eye-popping. With Creepy you get Dental Work, Earwigs, Cockroaches and more. But, with the Meat Parade you get Ground Beef, Corn Dogs, Olive Loaf and more.

It’s a tough choice, so we recommend buying both, which you can do by clicking here.

Harry and the Bigfoot Christmas Sweater

Our latest celebrity endorsement comes from Harry (without the Hendersons)! As you can see, he’s happy to be sporting our Bigfoot Sweater to show his celebration of the human holiday, Chritsmas. 

This sweater is a limited edition for the 2013 holiday season. Buy your own here.

It’s a sinister day in the neighborhood

Mirror Universe Mr. Rogers doesn’t think you’re special, hates that you’re his neighbor and loves our Krampus Sweater. He does still wear tennis shoes because they’re so darn comfortable.

This sweater is a limited edition for the 2013 holiday season. Get your own here.

Gravy Candy Canes

Gravy makes everything better, even Christmas, which is why we thought there should be more ways to enjoy gravy throughout the holiday season. No matter how bad a holiday meal is, you can always count on good old gravy to cover everything up and make it better. If it’s dry, gravy makes it juicy. If it’s flavorless, gravy packs it full of herb-infused deliciousness.

Gravy Candy Canes taste like grandma’s gravy, but they’re easier to hold in your hand.

We thought dipping our Gravy Candy Canes in actual gravy would be fun! It was not, David still hasn’t completely recovered:

Wookiees love Bigfoot

Talk about celebrity endorsements! Chewbacca sent us this picture of himself wearing our Bigfoot Sweater.

He says, “Rrrrwwrgh, Gwarrrrrrgh, Aargharrrrrawwwwgrrrrragggh.” Translated: “This sweater is warmer than the insides of a Tauntaun. It even smells slightly better.”

The Bigfoot Sweater is a limited edition 2013 holiday special. Buy one here before Chewie’s family snatches up the rest.

Merry Cthulhumas

It was around this time last year that Maika, co-editor of Archie McPhee’s Endless Geyser of Awesome, created her first Cthulhumas tree using a bunch of our Chtulhu tentacles, blue string lights, silver garland, a plush Cthulhu, and just the right amount of eldritch chanting. 

Knowing the Great Old Ones would be expecting a tribute at least as nice as last year’s effort, Maika created a second Cthulhumas tree this year, building on the original design with the addition of more lights, three dozen Finger Tentacles, and some Terrified B-Movie Victims. 

Don’t leave small pets or children alone around this tree. Those frightened little figures won’t satisfy it for long. 

Merry Cthulhumas to all of you!

May the Elder Gods continue to sleep soundly.

The top 5 unforgettable Christmas presents of 2012

Conventional Christmas presents like video games, appliances and socks are great. But you can make Christmas even more fun with some delightfully strange and unexpected gifts as well.

That’s why we made this handy list of our top 5 unforgettable Christmas gifts for 2012 to help you get started:

5. Big Head Squirrel Feeder

After tending to their beloved yards all year long, Dads have earned some yard-related entertainment and this unusual gift is just the ticket. It also makes a funny (and useful!) present for nature lovers and anyone who thinks the town squirrels are getting a little big for their tiny britches. This time of year those naughty neighborhood squirrels are running around like crazy trying to stock up (and fatten up) for the winter. Hang this feeder in the backyard, fill it with something squirrels find irresistible and then stand back while hilarity ensues.

4. Jane Austen Bandages

Moms are renowned for kissing our boo-boos and making us feel better, but Moms sometimes get boo-boos of their own. Fancy bandages decorated with pretty images of one of literature’s most famous female novelists or quotations from her best works make an entertaining and delightfully practical gift. (Pairs well with Downton Abbey dvds.)

3. Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats

Most of us know at least one crazy cat lady. If there’s one thing crazy cat ladies love almost as much as their cats it’s a present for their precious feline friends. Plenty of cat lovers probably already think their kitties are magical creatures, but this inflatable unicorn horn makes it official. It also makes for some seriously funny photos.

2. Clumsy Cook Turkey Mask

This mask is a perfect gift for that famously funny uncle as well as aspiring, accomplished or just downright terrible cooks. Put this realistic raw turkey mask in the hands of someone who already has a great sense of humour and Christmas will turn into something straight out of a sitcom.

1. Inflatable Beard of Bees

What do you get for the person who has everything? Easy, you get them an Inflatable Beard of Bees! There’s no chance they’ve already got one and it’s useful in all sorts of unexpected situations: impress the ladies (or the gents or hives of single bees), conceal your identity, cover up that patchy moustache while it’s still just growing in or use it as a bib instead of a traditional napkin. It also makes a handy life raft for pet hamsters and the perfect present for notoriously hard-to-shop-for apiarists.

With presents like these, your holiday is sure to be a truly memorable experience. Remember, the more people are laughing, the less they’re discussing politics or gossiping about .
