Gift buying is never easy, but when there’s a world-class weirdo on your list, it can be worse than trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube with your feet while sucking on a blotter of acid. That’s why we’ve put in the hard work to find all the gifts that will get a thumbs up from that friend, family member, or neighbor who’s a little too…should we say unorthodox? It doesn’t matter if they already have the entire Weird Al box set – on vinyl and cassette – and have already tried every flavor of kimchi soda. We’ve got you covered.

Yes, we are talking about actual, for real radioactive, uranium ore. It’s nothing you could make a bomb from, we’re pretty sure, but point a Geiger counter at it and your friend is sure to get that uncomfortable “is this thing going to give me cancer?” feeling we all love to hate. Probably don’t give this one to your roommate.
We don’t know why anyone would need this. It’s just a box with a switch. And If you flip the switch it opens up and a little finger pokes out to flip the switch back. Because reasons. Here’s the thing though: you can do this all day, and it’s just as fun every time. Not sure that’s a good thing, but people seem like it.

Crafting with Cat Hair
We all have that one friend. The one who can never seem to find that steady relationship. The one with a cat or two. And then three. And four. The one who starts to show up to parties, on the rare occasions she does show up, increasingly covered in cat hair. This book. This book is for her.
They say that just because you can do a thing, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you should do that thing. But did they ever consider how completely awesome it would be to ride around on a 49cc motorized cooler full of cold beverages? Yeah, we don’t think so either.
Otamatone – The Worst Musical Instrument
There are a lot of weird musical instruments out there, but many of them don’t make great gifts since it takes effort to learn how to play them. Not so with the Otamatone!

Beef jerky is a fond favorite of many but, let’s be honest, it’s pretty standard and when you’re looking for a less than regular gift for a less than regular person, you’re going to have to do better than that. Earthworm jerky might just be the answer. This jerky is packed full of protein and we hear that it’s really tasty too. We did mean to try it ourselves, honestly … but … earthworms.

This isn’t any old rain poncho, even if it looks like one, this is a modesty preserving, wearable restroom. Because when your weirdo’s got to go, they’ve got to go.
Sarah Palin Knife
This gift might be a bit of a stab in the dark but if you know someone who fancies themselves as a bit of a handyman or just someone who’s really into former Republican front runner paraphernalia, this gift might just do the trick. We’re not sure if the box comes with the warning but just in case it doesn’t, these knives aren’t guaranteed to be the sharpest tools in the shed…if you catch our drift.
We know that everyone marches to the beat of their own drum, but if your favorite weirdo is not satisfied with just their inner rhythm, these pants will surely to do the trick in letting them express themselves loud and proud.

Lobsters have many, many great qualities, not least among them are their nutritional and flavor profiles. But they’re dumb as dirt, exceptionally slow, and don’t drive. So if it’s inconvenient for you to go all the way to the ocean to find the best lobsters, you’re going to have to have someone mail them to you. Thankfully, lobster mail is now a reality.
Absinthe Making Kit
Back in 1905, a Swiss laborer had a sandwich and some absinthe for lunch, then went home and killed his family. And that was it for absinthe. A classic case of overreaction. Now it’s more than a hundred years later, and absinthe is again the trendiest liquor in the world. You might as well jump into the deep end. Here’s the diving board.
