Christmas Shopping Help!

Looking for some Christmas gift ideas for those hard to shop for people in your life? Look no further than the website This is Why I'm Broke! Wait, don't go over there though. Stay here. I have hand picked the perfect gifts for you to order for those special people in your life!

For your nephew: 

Glow in the dark toilet paper. Give that boy in your life another reason to be fascinated with all that goes on in the toilet. Glow in the dark toilet paper PLUS (whispering) poo? Yes please! I mean, that's what he'll be saying. Not me. No way, I'm too classy to be the slightest bit interested in glow in the dark toilet paper. Oh! I just thought of something! TPing someone's house with this! Yeah, I your nephew needs some of this.


For your sister

Want to give your sister a way to say, "Yeah, I may be married with a bunch of kids and some pets but I'm not BORING. In fact, my family is UNDEAD"? Look no further than these zombie family car stickers! 20% grotesque, 80% awesome.



For your baby nephew

Babies are the world's cutest creatures (followed by puppies, kittens, and according to my niece: Justin Bieber), but they're lacking one important thing: facial hair. This is easily remedied with the mustache pacifier. Perfect for the baby in your life. Impress all the ladies in the nursery, play group, or bowling alley! This kid won't be able to keep up with the female admirers!



For your Elizabeth Downie:

What do you get for someone who loves reading, and is really, really (like really) good at Pacman? Why, the Pacman bookshelf of course! These bookshelf screams, "I know how to read AND I'm a little weird!"



For your brother:

Butt/face soap. I'm not going to go into too many details about why this is wise. But just in case you don't understand why this is a grand idea, here's a quote from Friends:

Joey: Hey, why can't we use the same toothbrush, but we can use the same soap?
Chandler: Because soap is soap. It's self-cleaning.
Joey: All right, well next time you take a shower, think about the last thing I wash and the first thing you wash.


 For your tech-loving friend: 

Can't afford to get your gadget loving friend a fancy gift? Watch their face drop when they realize the iPad you gave them is just a paper pad! This iPad is a revolutionary writing surface, made with actual trees! It can be "written on" (ask your mom and dad about this old fashioned thing called "manual hand writing") with pens and pencils, which can be purchased from the same stores you bought your thumb drive from!

For the girl who has everything:

I'll tell you what she doesn't have: FOUR ears!! But that's exactly what she can have (sort of) with these ear earrings!

Trippy, right?

And last but not least, for you. You have to treat yourself every now and then, right? How about with some fashionable and functional handerpants?

After all, sometimes you're outside and you're cold, but you need your fingers to be available! Like when you're using your smart phone, or playing your trombone. These are a great way to stay warm AND modest.

I hope these tips have helped you cross some of those hard to shop for people off your list! Happy shopping!

I think we both know that us trombone players were the only ones who didn't need handerpants because we could wear real mittens.

Um, is this your way of telling me you got me the zombie things, because those are amazing.

Also, why is the pac-man shelf $572! What the H. That's almost my mortgage payment. Ha!

Okay, these are all amazing gift ideas. However, I think I prefer this bookcase design: http://www.bookliciousblog.com/2010/02/bookcase-wednesday_24.html?m=1.

Those are all amazing!! Except for the last one, which is terrifying. And the ear earrings, which are also disturbing... I LOVE that bookshelf!!!

Sarah said...
