As soon as we arrived in New Hampshire this weekend to visit my husband’s parents, my mother-in-law was eager to show off some deeply discounted holiday gifts she recently picked up at CVS.
She bought them not because she thought they would make great stocking stuffers for Xmas 08, but because she thought they were utterly ridiculous and didn’t have her cell phone with her at the drugstore to take photos of them. So she purchased them for our amusement.
Bonney really should have a blog of her own, but because she doesn’t, it’s up to me to share these gems with a wider audience.
Here we have a gift set for the person who has everything. Everything, that is, except for a candle that doubles as hand lotion (??), packaged with (of course) a CD of “fresh, easy-listening contemporary” holiday music.
Just burn, pour, and uh… moisturize. Try to remember to stick that order, I guess.
Here’s another one that I’m sure many people have already seen, but I just can’t get over how lame it is.
There are probably hordes of Sportscenter fans who jumped at the chance to own this electronic Hallmark “Keepsake” ornament, but I would rather get paid to advertise on my tree, instead of the other way around. The thing came with batteries, but we don’t have the stomach to insert them and see what noises it emits.
