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.

Introducing the Titanic Gravy Boat

There’s a stack of mashed potatoes off the port bow. Hard to starboard!

Since every holiday dinner is a disaster, you might as well use the Titanic Gravy Boat. The gravy pours through a hole in the hull!

The Titanic Gravy Boat brings one of the most famous maritime tragedies of all time to your dinner table. This ceramic representation of the Titanic is 9″ x 4-3/4″ and holds 16 fl. oz. of gravy which can be poured through the hole in the hull.

Also, it can be used to stage a historical reenactment if your relatives start talking politics. As soon as someone starts quoting radio show hosts, you just use mashed potatoes as the iceberg and peas as the life boats.

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 .

Dave Barry’s 2012 Holiday Gift Guide

This year Dave Barry chose five of our items for his 2012 Gift Guide.

He selected the Squirrel Mask, Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats, Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Humans, Chicken Mask, and the Emergency Underpants Dispenser.

Here’s what he had to say about the kitty horn:

Do you have cat lovers on your holiday list? If so, here’s a gift that is sure to make them say: “What?” It’s an Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats“. And if you know anything about cats, you know how much they, as a species, enjoy being dressed up as mythical figures. To use this horn, you simply blow it up and attach it to your cat’s head with elastic straps. Then it’s time to sit back and enjoy the ensuing hilarity for several lighthearted nanoseconds. And then it’s time to go to the emergency room.

And here’s what he said about the Squirrel and Chicken masks:

Have you ever found yourself in a meeting at work when you wanted to fall asleep, or make faces at other meeting participants, but you can’t because you need to remain employed? If so, you, or some employed person on your holiday gift list, could definitely use one of these masks. These are large rubber masks that cover your entire head. You can see out, sort of, through the eye holes, but nobody can see in. So you (italics) appear (end italics) to be an attentive, interested, meeting-attending squirrel or chicken, no matter what you are actually doing with your face in there.

FACT: Many airline pilots wear these on international flights.
