So, you are a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise, and there is nothing quite like eating pizza, enjoying some decent munchies while sipping on your favorite wine on the side? I am quite sure that you can sit through the entire marathon of six Star Wars episodes back-to-back if you are a true fan, and surely one bottle of wine is not enough. Thing is, if you are not one who is able to finish even a single bottle, then a bottle stopper is an ideal to have so that you need not let the whole bottle of wine go to waste. Talk about plugging in your wine bottle with the $14.99 R2-D2 Bottle Stopper, but unfortunately, it will not come with his customary beeps and boops.
Do you have the hots for a cowgirl? Well, a cowgirl who does not have the devil’s workshop for her mind would definitely need to keep her hands free for life’s more important things, including roping and branding, and of course, fending off them cowboys who get too fresh. I guess she would definitely get thirsty from time to time, which is where the $14.95 Cowgirl Drinking Hat comes in handy, freeing up her hands and yet allowing her to grab a refreshing sip from one time to another as and when required. There is a drinking tube that connects the cans for your drinking convenience.
There is nothing quite like a throwback to the good old days, and for those of us grew up with the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in our living rooms, surely those 8-bit sprites toyed with our imagination more than you can believe. Fast forward to this day and age of Full High Definition imagery, and anything less than a rendered image is immediately discarded. Enter the £19.99 8-bit Sleeves for iPad which is a throwback to your younger days, giving you that much needed retro look in a sleek and sturdy synthetic leather design. Apart from toting your Apple tablet around in style, it is also useful to carry other stuff.
Do you remember when you were young, and someone came up to you as though he had an arrow shot through his head? Well, that was most definitely a prank headpiece which should have seen you drop your heart when you were a wee lad. Well, now that you are all grown up and can tell a phoney from the real deal, how about playing the same prank in an updated manner with the littles ones around you? With the $11.75 Shark Earbuds, you will find one end of the shark on one ear, while the tail would be at the opposite side, making it look at first glance as though there is a new species of sausage sharks preserved and sent through your auditory canals from one end to appear at the other.
When you were a kid, I am quite sure those of us with friends (yes, Forever Alone types might want to take a minute or two to mourn their loneliness) would have toyed around with the idea of secret messages, and learning the Morse Code or Pig Latin, or even writing down messages in invisible ink (lemon juice) had you in stitches, thinking that only you and your best friend were the only ones who knew how to communicate that way, with the rest of the world being absolutely clueless. Well, relive those whisper quiet moments with the $26.99 DCI Morse Code Wall Clock, where each number space’s hour is described in Morse Code.
The Queen is a much respected figure, but she herself is more than open to ridicule and being the butt of jokes – respectable ones, that is, and to a certain degree to boot. For those who want to literally take a swing at the queen, you can do so by picking up the £6.95 Royaltees Queen Golf Tees. Needless to say, you will need to have some golfing basics pat down in your body’s muscle memory before you get to tee off with the queen herself. The next time your mates ask you who you are playing with, see their jaws drop when you say that you’ve got a trip due to Buckingham Palace.
If you were to purchase a piece of luggage for your travels, then surely picking the color black might not be such a good idea after all. Sure, black is stylish and it will definitely ensure that minor scratches and damage done to the luggage retains a minimal level of visibility, but that would also mean you and a gazillion other folks who wait around the carousel for their luggage might mistake your suitcase as theirs. Some folks tie a small colored ribbon to the handle of the suitcase, but surely the chances of anyone having a pair of googly eyes attached to their suitcase is minimal. The $5.99 Googly Eyes Luggage Tag ensures it gets the job done, personalizing your suitcase to a T without batting an eyelid.
Sucking your thumbs, that is a rather disgusting habit when you are a grown up, although when you were a wee lad, your parents as well as all the other adults who crossed your path thought of that as adorable. Isn’t life strange in this manner? Of course, no one would want to grow up to be another Linus of the Peanuts fame, comfort blanket and all. Well, here is one way to relive those super young moments in your life – with the $3.99 Thumb Sucker, that is, as it allows you to remain positive at the same time suck on a delicious piece of candy, now how about that? Almost cannibalistic in nature, if you ask me.
Have you paid a visit to the casino hotels like the Venetian in Las Vegas? Surely you would have sampled a faux gondola ride in a fake environment, but it sure as heck is a whole lot more affordable compared to heading out to Venice on your own, right? Well, you can bring a little bit of romanticism to your home with the $9.99 Venice Gondola Ice Cube Tray, where it will allow ice cubes to accompany your drink, ensuring that it remains nice and cold at all times. Just make sure that the gondolier of the freezer does not nick your ice before you get to it!. A plastic oar can be used to guide your drink down the stream to cold and refreshing, and this is the ideal gift for a bar or mixologist.
Some of us are hoarders, and we love to keep plenty of our old stuff just in case we “might need it someday”, but chances are pretty high that we will not need it in the first place anyways. Well, the $9.99 Dumpster Keepsake Box is a hoot when you think about it, especially when it epitomizes the old saying that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Of course, it is safe to say that the Dumpster Keepsake Box is not as smelly as the real deal, but is one interesting way of throwing nosey parkers off your trail when they are snooping around.
