My Funny Holiday Finds

I get a lot of e-mails and catalogs from companies and businesses that want to sell me their stuff. (Perhaps you're familiar with this daily fact of life?) One of the few perks of this is that it can be a riot to see the funny things that people have come up with. The following are a few of my recent amusing holiday-related finds...

These e-cards from Daily Candy are hilarious! These are my faves:





If you're looking for a unique, creative gift, how about a journal made from Elephant Poo? Yes, this is for real, and it's brought to you by the creative folks at Uncommon Goods. As it says on the website, "this is a stinkin' good idea." Click on the link to read the very funny description and to discover how the poo gets turned into paper. I like elephants and I support buying recycled products, but....if someone were to give me this my first thought would be that they must not like me very much.


And last but not least, here are some snappy little gift tags from Pretty Bitter.




It says: "Sorry, this is the best I could do."

"Sorry, but this is all I could afford. I hope you got me something better." Ha ha! If that's not what the true Christmas spirit is all about then I don't know what is.

I need those tags too. Funny. I would not enjoy the elephant poo journal too much either. I think my hands would be bleeding from all the washing that would be done after realizing what it was made out of.

Those are so funny! I especially love "get ready to fake excitement". For some reason, it makes me giggle.

If you ever get me recycled poo, I'll take that as a hint.

I like the gift tags. I would never put one on a gift, but they are a hoot and a half to read :)

Ok the gift tags just made me pee myself! It is totally true what they say.

Those are great! The one about regifting makes it seem more aceptable to regift! I'll watch for your soap order today and tomorrow! I bet your little boy would love the fish in a bag and lizard! Thanks!

Loved the gift cards!
I'm afraid I re-gift like mad.
I do hope things eventually get a happy home.
And I give stuff I want and then want it back!
Merry Christmas.

Donna, I changed the order due date to today by 5:00. I meant to have it be today in the first place so that I can ship them off tommorrow morning, otherwise they might not make it for Christmas. If you don't need them by Christmas, then that's fine. Just thought I'd let you know!
