Really Cheap And Really Bad Gifts

If the idea is to give a totally useless (but totally funny) gift, then read on. After all, what’s the point if you can’t stick someone with a total garbage gift?

Prank Gift Boxes: It doesn’t matter what you stuff in these hilarious boxes, because the reaction of your recipient is the real gift. Be it the Beer Beard or the Griddle Alarm, you’ll be sure to make someone very, very confused 3 for $US20 [Gizmodo; PrankPack]

128MB Thumb Drives: They’ll be able to fill them up with almost enough data to make them useful, but not quite. That’s what makes this gift extra sadistic. It’s full of potential, but still just not quite useful. $US10 [Amazon]

Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drive: You should be able to find these for around $US20 on eBay. And hell, maybe even cheaper if it doesn’t work. Whether or not it works doesn’t matter, as there’s no way anyone would actually use one of these embarrassing mistakes of a product.

USB Hedgehog Hand Warmer and Massager: It’s a USB device! It’s a hand warmer! It’s a personal massager! It’s a hedgehog! It’s… awkward! $US13 [Brando]

Burrito Glasses: I have no idea either. $US15 [Etsy via Fashionably Geek]

Penis Ice Cube Tray: The “dicks in your drink” jokes just write themselves, don’t they? For added Christmas Spirit, throw their old ice cube trays away so they have no choice but to use this. $US9 [Amazon]

Hooper DVD: Hooper stars Burt Reynolds as “The World’s Greatest Stuntman”. No need to worry about this coming out on Blu-ray, as it’s f—king horrible.

Reindeer Toilet Cover: Nothing says Holiday Spirit like pooping in Blitzen’s mouth. $US15 [Collection Set C via Nerd Approved]
