Let’s face it, there’s always one person on our list of gift-giving needs that’s impossible to shop for. With birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduation parties and random holidays springing up everywhere these days, you might find yourself stuck in an “uh-oh” state of mind more often than not when it comes to gift ideas.
Well, fear not – there’s always something out there that’s perfect for that one random person in your life who likes everything or likes nothing, who has a sense of humor or is the driest person you know, who is appreciative or otherwise. Here are 5 ideas to get you started on your next shopping adventure for these people in your life.
Guys love their facial hair, that’s just a fact of life. So how proud would they be to show off a sweet mustache everywhere they go, or at least everywhere they drive?
Enter the Carstache. It is literally a giant mustache for your car. Big and furry, this ball of awesomeness is in the perfect shape of the most epic mustache you’ll ever see. It dresses up a naked grille on the car with class and flare. It even gets a run-down car the attention of all the ladies.
These ‘staches are under $50 and available online. They attach easily to the front grille of any car to bring it that extra little “umph.” You can’t go wrong when you give the gift of the ‘stache.
Zombie Family Car Stickers
Ah, the perfect gift for anyone who has a family! You know those decals that people put on the back windshields of their cars and there’s one for every member of the family, sometimes even the dog? Well now you can turn your family into zombies!
At least with the zombie decals. They’re along the same lines as those family decals, but each member of your family gets to be a different zombie. Your gift recipient will either laugh their head off or be royally disturbed, so make sure you know your audience before you purchase this one.
Oh, the best part? They’re under $10. Now that’s my idea of a gift!
Sex Panther Cologne
You know what they say, right? “60% of the time, it works every time!” That’s right, this is the infamous official Sex Panther cologne from the hit movie Anchorman.
No, it doesn’t actually smell like diapers filled with Indian food – it actually has overtones of clean and refreshing juniper, lavender and musk and is finished with notes of cedar and sandalwood. Basically, it’s a very clean, masculine scent.
If you have the perfect person on your list to receive Sex Panther, you can find it online for under $40 for about 2 ounces. Not a bad deal considering its proven power!
Remember your favorite game that involved pulling bricks out of a little tower until the whole thing fell over? You know, the classic, Jenga? Not that the original has gone anywhere, but Jenga is back big time, and it’s back with a vengeance.
Welcome to the retail world, Giant Jenga. This life-size block game is meant for play in a yard or garden area, and can actually be somewhat dangerous. The rules are still the same, and the person to pull the brick that knocks the whole tower over is still the loser of the game, but there’s some added elements to this one. Mainly the element of being hit with a life-size toppling tower of bricks when they all come tumbling down.
The perfect gift for the dare-devil gamer in your life, Giant Jenga will bring a laugh (and a lot of fun, too!) to your gift recipient’s life. It’ll run you up about $100 but it’s a gift no one is going to forget anytime soon.
