Orreries are great to look at, but unless you're a die-hard astronomer, they're hardly romantic. If you're after a gift that's slightly more portable, encompasses the majesty of our celestial friends and looks fabulous around one's limbs, you could do worse than this lovely "Galaxy Space" bracelet.

I'm scared already and they're just photos of the darn things. An Etsy magician by the name of "Kreatworks" crafts beautiful/horrifying sculptures from recycled metal, with the alien queen above just one glorious example of his work. You can buy them too... if you live in Thailand and have $15,000 to spare.
It's a great time to be a Ghostbusters fan as the film's 30th anniversary has triggered a renaissance in collectibles and other memorabilia connected to the movie. For example, if the thought of posing sculpted gnomes in your garden seems tacky, why not opt for this statue of the dog-like Keymaster monster that possesses Louis (Rick Moranis) instead?
We all make mistakes, and we can only assume that Etsy seller FableBedworks was in a rush when they posted this phenomenal transforming rocket ship murphy bed on their online store. Why else would they mistakenly refer to it as a "childrens bed" when there are certainly more than enough adults who would love a creation like this in their bedrooms?
Say goodbye to your current backpack, purse, or messenger bag because once you lay eyes on this amazing R2-D2 carry-all nothing else will ever satisfy your carrying needs again. Hand-made by the talented folks behind Krukrustudio, this Artoo is entirely made of felt and can be purchased on Etsy for $243.
The human hand serves as a perfectly usable tool for firing elastic bands, but sniping your co-workers is just far more satisfying when you've got a trigger to squeeze. And because everything is better when it's made of wood, these gorgeous toy guns from ElasticPrecision are hands-down the best way to unleash a fury of rubber bands on a target.
Briefly: Etsy seller SeamsGeeky has created a couple of amazingly adorable hand towels that Adventure Time fans will be more than proud to hang in their bathrooms. But after spending $US13 on either the BMO, Finn, or Jake versions, who would ever want to dry their hands on them and risk sullying these wonderful creations?
There will never be another fight over who gets to lay in the hammock with this monstrosity strung up in your backyard. The Mega Hammock requires you to find at least four nearby trees (or cranes) for hanging, but when it's up it looks like it can easily support a group of at least 10 loungers -- plus a toddler or two. But due to weight restrictions, it maxes out at around three adults.
Painters always sign their canvases, so why shouldn't bakers -- proud of their tasty treats -- not sign their work as well? But since pens don't work on dough, and Sharpies are probably an even worse idea, Etsy seller Zuzia Zuber will create a custom rolling pin for you, embossed with a repeating pattern of "made by (your name here)."
The fact of the matter is, if you don't teach your kids about the dangers of using Comic Sans when they're young, they're just going to pick it up on the street. Whether it's a flyer for a garage sale, or a bulletin board at their preschool, the world is a minefield of terrible typography, and you need to address the issue with your young'ns before it becomes a problem.
Obviously, there are flowers you can eat. But be careful about digging around your garden to find some yourself. You could chomp on something poisonous and then -- oops! You're dead! If you've ever wanted to deck a cake out with some beautiful blooms, this Edible Flower Seed Kit from Sarah Rainwater is a safer bet.
