In case you haven’t gotten the memo, we’re basically wrong about everything, and here’s the proof. Even the stuff you’re pretty sure you know is mostly wrong. And we’re not talking about getting complex math problems wrong or misjudging the character of your friends. We’re talking about basic, simple facts in topics like history and science — the stuff you’re supposed to learn in school. Yeah, it was all a big bundle of lies and misunderstandings. And if you look back over your life, perhaps that explains a lot.
This prank joke box is the perfect way to make an okay present seem way better. Once they open it and realize it’s not really a VR headset for their dog, whatever you actually put inside will seem a lot better. There is really only one way this joke can go awry: if the gift you put inside is actually worse than a VR set for dogs. But then again, failure on that level is an art form in itself, which makes it a weird kind of success.
According to a 2019 Harris Poll, almost a quarter of Americans would choose pizza if they could only eat one food for the rest of their lives. Sixty-five percent think pizza is a suitable breakfast item, and forty percent would give up dating for a year in exchange for free pizza anytime they wanted. This pizza oven is for outdoor use, is portable, and fueled by wood, charcoal, or pellets and can reach a temperature of 930 degrees Fahrenheit. Oven walls, ceiling and floor are fully insulated.
The perfect book of assorted puzzles for adults to work out their aggro-boredom while stuck inside the house. Lots of cathartic swearing sprinkled among several types of word, logic, and number puzzles to keep the brain sharp and maybe coerce a chuckle or two from their jaded souls. This is an ideal way to redirect wayward mental energy into something moderately productive so they can take a break from starting fires on social media.
When he’s not whipping up beats and ghetto-smooth flows, it turns out Snoop Dogg is busy whipping up tuna casseroles and birthday cakes. Who would have thought? But then again, given his chosen pastimes, it’s a good bet that he’s hungry more often than the average human. A holy fusion of soul food, classic dinner dishes, and Cap’n Crunch, there’s something for everyone in these pages. Time to get down on some dogg food.
Wine consumption is about much more than just getting drunk. It’s also about tradition and ritual. And as with all rituals, the more complex the better. At least, that’s the idea behind this wonderful, absurd, ingenious contraption. The Eccentric’s Wine Steward Eliminator is an 8-foot tall mechanical sommelier made from 300 precision-cast bronze parts, and it turns the act of uncorking and pouring a bottle of wine into some sort of ridiculously awesome Steampunk / Willy Wonka experience. Whoever owns this insane and fantastic contraption is one large step closer to world dominance.
We all could use a little more color in our lives—or 540 more colors, that is. With that many puzzle pieces, each in a slightly different shade, this 3D sphere-shaped jigsaw puzzle will excite your inner artist. Explore the color scale as you challenge yourself to piece together each individual hue exactly in relation to the next. The finished result is a rainbow ombre gradient that fades to white at one pole of the puzzle globe and to black at the other. It even comes with a stand, so you can turn your accomplishment into a piece of décor after you place the last piece.
Most people go through life never knowing how old they truly are. No, we’re not talking about questioning the authenticity of your birth certificate. We’re talking about your internal age. The one that determines how you act, think, and make sense of the world. Because outside of insurance premiums and senior discounts at the local diner, your internal age is the one that really matters. This game uses a super scientific formula that calculates the players’ true age based on how they answer seemingly innocuous questions. Isn’t it about time to find out the truth?
When someone drops a bomb with your name on it, the best thing you can do is light a candle with theirs on it. Not to pray for their soul, mind you, but to cleanse the shared airways. And since it’s always best to fight heavy artillery with heavy artillery, you don’t want to settle for any old candle. You want a high quality hand-poured candle with a scent that’s strong enough to fight off that of your antagonist. The perfect gift for anyone who lives with a documented intestinal terrorist.
Favored by private collectors, this wine management system tracks which wines are in your collection, where they are located, and when they mature. The system comes with a 17" touchscreen computer, 500 barcode labels for each bottle in your collection, and a wireless scanner. Simply scanning the label and typing just the first three letters of a wine’s name prompts the computer to search for it in a 350,000-bottle database. The computer automatically adds an image of the wine label, the country of origin, region, and grape varietal and allows you to input where the bottle is stored in your cellar and the price you paid for it. When a wine is ready to drink, scanning it again removes it from your inventory. The computer connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and provides access to ratings, tasting notes, and current values for every wine.
There’s a primal enjoyment that comes from the feeling of grass on your bare soles, the blades reaching up and tickling between your toes. The tactile feedback of stepping on terra firma, feeling the earth beneath you supporting your human form. But also, real grass is kind of gross. Insects, worms, and countless other repulsive micro-beasts call it home. “Grass” sandals are the ideal way to experience that sensory connection with nature while maintaining a sensible distance.
When caught in life’s most dire situations, sometimes you must rely on the kindness of strangers as a last resort. But sometimes strangers turn out to be murderers, or worse. That’s what technology is for. This portable charger can be a literal life saver when stuck on the road with a dead battery. And what’s more, it doubles as a charger of electronic devices as well, eliminating boredom and the need for possibly nefarious “good samaritans” in one fell swoop.
When they can’t rely on a standard door lock to keep people out of their living space, they need to get creative. But if they’re not up to rigging up booby traps everywhere they go, fret not. Someone already created a simple, pocket sized solution. The Addalock portable door lock is designed to provide the safety, security, and extra peace of mind needed when traveling or squatting in shady digs.
The burden of constant decision making has been found to be the leading cause of workplace violence. Help forestall a catastrophe by moving the burden onto this ever patient, always reliable aluminum spinner. You may just be saving a life.
The flight game is no place for guessing. The last thing they need is to show up at the airport with two extra t-shirts in their suitcase and end up paying those greedy airlines a small fortune in overweight baggage fees. A reliable handheld scale is the way to beat these scammers at their own dirty game. Just hook a bag up to the handle, hoist it a few inches skyward, and verify that they have the upper hand in this exchange.
Someone went and leveled up the fish bowl. This is the perfect gift for that big-picture thinker who digs sustainability and balance. Also for anyone who wants a pet they don’t have to take care of.

The world is full of more grimy, disgusting, and dangerous debris than most people are aware of, and some of it is all over your fingers. Thankfully, someone has created a spectacular solution (that looks and feels an awful lot like silly putty) to help remove those disgusting substances from everyday surfaces before they have a chance to get all over someone you love and and ruin their life. A great, long lasting, and highly reusable gift for anyone who touches things all day and doesn’t want to be gross.
If the last thing they need is another “thing”, then the best possible gift is to take a trip together. Whether it’s a short day-trip to the beach, a weekend in Vegas, or a vacation overseas, travel creates memories that will last forever, long after their gizmos have become obsolete, their doodads have broken down, and their whatchamacallums have faded into obscurity.
What’s the point of moving or traveling if you’re going to do the same things you’ve always done when you get there?

Just give it to them. Don’t make a big deal about it, or give them diet books or a lecture or anything like that. They know. They have figured out for themselves that their body is not quite the well-tuned machine that it once was. Just give the Fitbit, and leave the rest to them.
The body cavity method is the gold standard for carrying valuables on your person while attempting to keep them away from strangers and the general public. Admittedly, this isn’t for everyone. The next best place nobody will want to look is inside your shoe insole. And as a bonus, carrying around your spare hotel key or a small wad of cash in a secret shoe compartment makes you feel like a low-grade movie spy. This is the perfect gift for anyone traveling in pickpocket-happy tourist traps or engaging in a little soft smuggling.
This is the lazy man’s rosetta stone. Learning is difficult, and fortunately unnecessary as long as someone else is willing to come up with clever ideas like this. If they ever find themselves overseas and looking for something that’s not on this shirt, they might want to reevaluate what they’re asking for.
Happy couple decides to go on vacation, finds quaint lodging belonging to complete stranger for a price that seems too good to be true. In the movies, they get hacked to pieces.

Buy them a couple tickets to a great event or show as a little test. Will they give the extra ticket to you? You just gave them this very thoughtful gift, after all. Or do they keep them both. In which case, maybe they just get a box of chocolates from the drug store next time.
Air travel can be pretty uncomfortable, especially if you're crammed in an economy seat like most working folks. When the stress is mounting, the kid starts crying, and the pilot announces that they'll be arriving behind schedule, at least there is booze.
