Planetary Paperweight For The Science Geek In Your Life


Are we talking about paperweights on OhGizmo!? Yes, yes we are. It’s not any ordinary paperweight though, but a Planetary Paperweight, not unlike the Planetary Lollipops or Planetary Glass Set we wrote about a while back. It’s a fun reminder that our little planet is nothing but a speck of dust in our vast universe, and a cool visual nod to the tiny neighbourhood of our galaxy we happen to inhabit. It’ll look great on the desk of any science-minded loved one in your life, and at $38, it makes a great stocking stuffer for the upcoming Holidays.

Pizza Wrapping Paper Is Perfect For The Holidays


You spend a lot of time thinking about what gifts to buy your loved ones over the Holidays, but let’s face it, you usually just grab whatever wrapping paper they have at the local drug store and call it a day. Taking the time to select carefully shows that extra touch of care, and what better way to show your love than you have your presents wrapped in paper that looks exactly like NYC style pizza? The Gift Couture Pizza Wrapping Paper is a Kickstarter that pitches just that, a pizza-patterned wrapping paper made from 30% post-consumer waste, acid free and archival quality. A $20 pledge will get you 2 sheets of paper, 2 pizza boxes and 2 labels. The sheet measures 18″ by 24″, and the box is 6″ X 6″ X 1.75″.

Clip-On Man Bun


So this exists. We suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. Women have had fake boobs, fake butts, fake nails… Give us men a chance, right? Right? No, to be honest, this is an atrocity, yet it hasn’t stopped over 5,000 people from ordering them according to Groupon, the site they’re being sold on. Considering they’re $10, we suppose it’s just the kind of thing someone might order on a whim, to check it out, only to toss it in shame after a few seconds. At least we hope.

Keep An Emergency Slice Of Pizza Around Your Neck


Oh, sure, this is a stupid product. It’s even sold by a store that goes by the name Stupidiotic! But hey, at least they take ownership of the stupidity of their products, and there’s something to be said about that kind of shameless confidence. The Pizza Pouch is, well, just a plastic pouch in which to store a single slice of pizza. There is a ziplock seal so the juices won’t flow out and the slice will remain… relatively fresh. And since you’ll be wearing a freakin pizza slice around your neck, you can expect to make a whole lot of friends, so you know, there’s that. It’s $8.

This Watch Will Light Your Cigarette


This is a bit of a novelty item, but for anyone who smokes, it’s also pretty cool. You’re looking at the Findtime Men Digital USB Lighter Watch. It’s a watch, and it’s also a lighter. Press a button and a coil heats up for long enough to light your cigarette. The rest of the time, well, it just does what a wristwatch does. Charging is done through USB. To further reflect the novelty status of this watch, it’s only $15.

Band-aids Look Like Flesh Wounds, Should Come In Different Skin Tones


The Boo-Boos Adhesive Bandages are designed by one Sherwood Forlee, and they’re made to look like gnarly wounds. They come in five different ‘flavours’: (from the top) slashing sharp-force trauma (with sutures), chemical burn, skin ulcer with skin slip, decubitus ulcer with maggot infestation, and small caliber gunshot. They’re really tasteful and are likely to get you lots of genuine, non-disgusted compliments from your friends. That’s of course only if your skin tone manages to perfectly match the background color on these. If it doesn’t, then you’ll just look like you stuck a gross Bandaid on your skin.

$10 gets four of each design in 3″ x 0.75″ bandages.

Bacon Scarf Looks Delicious, Isn’t For Eating


We want to buy this. It’s a silk scarf made by Natalie Luder, a designer from Switzerland, and is called “Fou Lard Bacon Scarf” (“foulard” is the French word for scarf). It’s digitally printed, along with a black rolled hem, and measures 70.8 inches long x 13.7 inches wide. It looks so delicious, we could eat it. But we won’t.

We won’t even buy it.

Why? Well, because the darn thing is $170. Who on earth would ever pay $170 for a novelty silk scarf? Anyway… it’s nice to know it exists, we suppose.

Cardboard Laptop For Your Cat


Let’s face it: if you have a cat, chances are he’s already wandered onto your laptop as you work, confusing your keyboard for a warm bed and interrupting your workflow. You scratch his belly, shoo him off, and try to keep working, only to watch him do it again two minutes later. Maybe he wants his own laptop? Well, that’s exactly what you’re looking at here. This cardboard laptop features a neat customizable “slide-in” screen, easily replaceable with a printed desktop image of your choosing. There’s also a scratch pad keyboard that will give your kitty a place to exercise his claws, away from your furniture and other expensive items. It even comes with a fluffy mouse toy, because what Cat Laptop is complete without that? It’s $35.
