Gift Guide 2018: Randomly Delightful

Blue wrapped package with silver ribbonTime for another installment of our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide!

I’ve been reading through the metric tonne of catalogs that have landed in my mailbox, and reading the email suggestions you’ve been sending in. You’re all fabulous shoppers.

Let’s do this!

First: Baby Gift For All Eternity, sorted. The Out of Print Clothing baby onesie collection is terrific, but the Everybody Poops onesie is my new favorite.

If you have waffle needs (who doesn’t?) perhaps you or someone you know needs a terrific waffle iron.

ThinkGeek has a Pokeball Waffle Iron ($35):

A pokeball waffle iron that creates waffles that look like pokeballs.

Or, for your more dramatic waffles, there’s also this one:

Death Star Waffle IronDeath Star Waffle Iron, $35.

We already knew the Dark Side had waffles, right? Right.

And from the random desk item that’s endlessly fascinating department (that’s totally a department, right?) there’s this:

infinity illusion torch lined hallway dungeon Infinite torch-lined hallway illusion box, $26.

Basically, it’s an illusion box: you turn it on, and it looks like an endless torch-lined hallway is sitting on your desk. The user submitted images make it seem terrific, too.

Can’t forget this one – The Ripped Bodice has an online and in-store holiday shop, complete with themed boxes, should you wish to purchase!

And Bawdy Bookworms has some excellent gifting options – check out this necklace!

Ova-Achiever Necklace, a curled metal necklace charm with pearls and beads to look like ovaries and a uterus Ova-Achiever Necklace, Bawdy Bookworms, $24. 

There’s also a Get Sleigh’d Holiday box available for a limited time:

Get S'leighed box items including edible gingerbread man pasties, a bendy vibe and a copy of a Jill Shalvis book Get Sleigh’d Box, $115 

For all your ugly-sweater competition needs, I have a few to share that should make you recoil in horror (sorry!).

First, please note that a member of my immediate family is SO EXCITED to wear this:

Faux Real Men’s Hanukkah Printed Ugly Shirt, $24.

These shirts are printed to look like sweaters, but are really long-sleeved athletic-shirt style polyester pullovers. This means they aren’t itchy, and they’re thin, so you can wear layers beneath (if you need to).

But there are more than just Hanukkah designs (including the pun-tastic “Cats and the Dreidel and the Silver Spoon” shirt, which makes me snortlaugh). I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this design on a book cover. Well, kinda sure.

Hairy chest santa with a tattoo and a open BUT TUCKED IN Santa shirt Faux Real Holiday Santa Shirt, $28. LOOK – the shirt is OPEN BUT TUCKED IN!

And for the crafty person in your life (stay tuned for tomorrow’s holiday crafting idea post, btw!) there are some adorable totes and bags available for hauling your stash o’ works in progress.
