Re: Post some unique Christmas gift ideas

Thread does not deliver. How can a mass-manufactured trinket be unique?

I've had this Spy Remote on my want list for a while now. Just haven't ever pulled the trigger.

You could paint a kitten red and green? Make sure you poke holes in the box, preferably before you place the cat inside.

If you get Sasha Grey to come over and you have her read to your cousins, you're doing it wrong.

On another forum I go to, someone listed that as their worst gift ever. Crazy, because I think it's pretty awesome.

I'm getting this for my daughter:

I have those types of ice cube mold (not star wars) and always have trouble getting them to come out like they should.

Yeah, I've wanted to pull the trigger on some in the past(LEGO cubes/figures), but figured it wouldn't work well.

Soak some tampons in vodka and give them to friends. If they seem frightened reassure them with the phrase "I'm wearing one now."

We knew that she liked reading so we bought her a Kindle with plans that if she actually used it to get her an iPad this year. Christmas day comes, she opens up the box to find a kindle and pretty much throws it on the ground. I barely talked with her for a month.
