Now now, I’m not dissing Boots 3 for 2 Christmas presents…I mean, if there ever was an indicator of Christmas time, it’s the Coke Adverts (Holidays are coming) followed by the Boots Christmas Gift Guide. I’m just saying that it’s quite obvious when everyone in the room has bought everyone else something from the Boots 3 for 2 selection, and the chances are you’ve memorised the page and the price of the item too.
So here it is, a Christmas gift guide full of completely useless but fun gifts – the kind of presents I prefer – because Christmas is the time for forcing other people to HAVE FUN.
1. The Screaming Vase
Angry? Frustrated? Want to scream and shout? This screaming vase is designed to fit over your mouth and it absorbs all your screams and shouts….then omits a softer version of your cursing through the bottom!
I, for one, am not the screaming shouting type, but there are times when you just have to LET IT OUT.
2. Necomimi Ears
Love cats? Want to be a cat? Well you are in the right place!
Necomimi ears are ‘brainwave cat ears’ – wear it like a headband and it will pick up on how you are feeling and respond accordingly. Ie, happy:
You also have perked up ears and wiggly ears for excitement. They also come in a selection of fur colours and even devil ears for those of you that go to too many hen nights.
3. Cartoon 3D Bags!
Look at this drawing…
It’s not a drawing silly! It’s a real bag! It took my eyes a good few goes to comprehend this:
Does that make it more real?! It’s just like Who Framed Roger Rabbit!
These cute 3D bags look just like cartoon drawings but they aren’t! The only problem with them is that they are flat (the front of the bag is like a drawing, it isn’t actually that shape or size!) which doesn’t make it madly practical but if you don’t carry much, it’s fine!
There was a time when I would totally dig a gimmicky bag but I’m too old for that kind of thing now…still here’s another pic!
Here’s a cute selection from $79.
4. Ostrich Pillow
Anyone with a full time job can associate with feeling like this I’m sure:
What is that amazingness on her head? An Ostrich Pillow!
Look at it!
This pillow can be worn for maximum comfort, and it also means that you can block out the light and keep your hands warm if necessary. I know it looks a bit…bulbous but as a new mother I can tell you, I will sleep anywhere, anytime now and this pillow makes it that bit easier.
5. Coffee Night Light
Coffee fans, how about a new way to express your love for the brown stuff? How about this amazing coffee lamp?
Put this on your desk at work and you will end up with none stop nosy parkers coming over to feel up your lamp!
It’s £24.99 from here.
Come on now, don’t be shy – would any of these items make you happy on Christmas Day?!
