Because Flowers are Overrated: Plush Unicorn Bouquet

Plush Unicorn Bouquet

You’re either a cat lady or a unicorn lover. For the former, there’s the bouquet of plush kittens. For the latter, there’s this plush unicorn bouquet. It’s a lot like the plush kitten bouquet, only instead of kittens, you get unicorns. It makes sense for kittens to come in nines (like they do in the kitten bouquet), with them having nine lives and all.

But unicorns live far longer than that, so you get not nine but a total of eleven unicorns in white, purple, and cyan. Did that make sense? Probably not, but the important thing is that you get more unicorns for your buck.

His and Hers: Star Wars Han and Leia Hand Towels

Star Wars Han and Leia Bathroom Hand Towels

 

There’s nothing like love that transcends borders. Kind of like the one Princess Leia and Han Solo share. Back in 2005, Lucas confirmed that Leia and Han did, indeed, live happily ever after. That’s something everyone already assumed, but still, it was nice to get confirmation. Now you can be reminded of that fact every day with these Han and Leia Hand Towels that’ll add a little extra something in your bathroom.

These soft towels have silhouettes of Leia and Han on one side and the Rebel Alliance insignia on the other side. It isn’t complete without the Star Wars logo, so you’ll find that in the corner. You’ve always said it with roses; why not declare your love with towels this year?

High-Tech Ugly Christmas Sweaters With Animated Designs are Still Ugly

High Tech Christmas Sweater

These are Christmas sweaters by Digital Dudz and they’re as tacky and ugly, like you’d expect ugly Christmas sweaters to be. They’re a lot more high tech compared to your typical sweater though, because the designs actually come to life. Some sweaters have fireplaces that burn bright, the one with the snowglobe has snow falling randomly, while two others that feature Santa and an adorable kitten have eyes that periodically move sideways.

Creepy? Yes. Nice? No. Still ugly? Definitely.

The sweater has a velcro pocket on the inside that can fit most mobile devices, include an iTouch, iPhone, or a Samsung Galaxy S3. The mobile device, in turn, runs the free companion app, which provides the animation.

Each animated Ugly Christmas Sweater is priced at $54.95.

Timeless Box Keeps Presents a Secret Until Christmas Eve

Christmas Safe

When some people think of Christmas, they only think of the gifts. But what about spreading cheer and giving more meaning to the holidays? That’s not the point behind the Timeless Box (aka gift safe), but it is one of the things you might come to realize after putting your focus away from the presents.

The Timeless Box is essentially a safe of sorts that’s meant to keep presents and other stuff hidden and away from prying eyes and hands until Christmas eve. The gift stays a secret (as it’s supposed to be), the giver can’t change his mind and exchange it for something cheaper (remember, it’s better to give than to receive–let’s just hope everyone thinks that way so you can receive your fair share, too), and everyone’s happy.

Eco-Friendly Christmas: Plant Discarded Gift Wrap In Your Garden

Plantable Wrapping Paper

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. It also happens to be a season of excessive waste, considering the amount of gift wrap and packaging people discard after unwrapping their presents.

Then along came Eden’s Paper and their plantable gift wrap. It’s eco-friendly wrapping paper that’s made from two layers of recycled paper. The cool thing about it is the fact that it’s got actual seeds embedded within the paper. So not only is it recyclable, but you can also plant the entire thing in your garden instead of discarding it.

PicPaperie Turns Instagram Images Into Gift Wrap

Picpaperie

So you’ve bought the perfect gift. Now it’s time to get the perfect gift wrap. Nice wrapping paper is like icing on the cake; it’s not the main thing people bite into, but it adds to the whole gifting experience. You could go and buy generic gift wrap with Santa and his reindeers printed all over, or you could get specially customized wrapping paper from PicPaperie.

The service basically turns an Instagram image into wrapping paper. The whole thing will be covered in grids with the selected image, so choose wisely. So if it’s a gift for your sister, choose an image from her feed that you know she’ll particularly like. If it’s for your SO, choose a picture with you in it and wrap it up with a box.

PicPaperie was recently funded on Indiegogo and will be launching soon. You can sign up for updates on their website.

Gift Alarm Catches Kids Who Peek at Presents Red-Handed

Gift Alarm

Kids sneaking around their parents’ closet is almost a tradition as we inch closer to Christmas. It’s painfully obvious if they’ve done a bit of peeking as well, since their faces already show disappointment (if they don’t like the gift) or forced excitement (if they like it) as they take their wrapped present from under the tree.

You can’t always be around to guard your closet or wherever your hiding place for presents is, but you can let the Gift Alarm do the guarding for you. It has a built-in motion sensor that detects movement near the place where the gift is. Once it does, it sounds an alarm, which will most likely send whoever is sneaking around into hiding.

Turn your Christmas tree into Fort Knox with the Gift Alarm.The whole point of wrapping gifts is so they’ll be a surprise, not so people can peel back the paper and peep. If some lookie-loo tries to approach their stack of gifts, the alarm goes into DEFCON 1 with a loud siren and flashing red light. It’s not Christmas specific, so you could also use this to protect the last piece of cake or your diary.

The Gift Alarm is available for $13.

Forget That Rabbit’s Foot! Here’s a Jar of Instant Luck

Insta Luck

Down on your luck? Forget that rabbit’s foot and grab a jar of Insta-Luck instead. Each of these tiny jars contain a hand-picked four-leaf clover that’s grown in the USA and preserved through a 5-step method to make sure that it’ll last you a lifetime. Finding an authentic four-leaf clover yourself has a 1 in 10,000 chance in happening, so save yourself some time and buy one instead.

Luck isn’t guaranteed, but at least you’ll have something to hold on to (aside from your faith) when the going gets tough and when the odds are against you.

Apparently a lot of people believe in four-leaf clovers as well, since they’re all currently sold out online. Fret not though, because they’ll be back in stock on later this month and will be priced at $11.99.

Spread the Love: A Family Valentine’s With the Tree of Love

Family Tree1

Valentine’s is a day for couples. When you go out on February the fourteenth, you don’t see couples strolling around the park with their kids in tow; it’s usually a day that’s reserved for man and wife (or man and girlfriend) only. But why not do something different this Valentine’s and mark off the evening by doing something out-of-the-ordinary with your entire family?

A nice, not-so-quiet dinner with the gang, followed by a movie or some board games sounds ideal. Then, of course, comes the matter of gifts. I doubt kids will appreciate getting a couple red roses each, so why not splurge on something that the whole family can use and appreciate, like a family tree?
