Christmas gift ideas for the hard-to-buy-for people in your life

I have quite a few people that are notoriously difficult to buy for. On my search for gifts for them, I have come across a few gems. You might find them useful.

Your dorky brother
Any closet musician would love this. A wearable "DJ quality" t-shirt drum kit. Yes, this actually makes drum sounds, they can enjoy music where ever they go and annoy everyone else. $29.95 from ThinkGeek

The Lazy Cyclist
Don't waste your neck muscles by turning around. Now you can watch out for cars speeding up behind you without turning around. If you could have a forward, left and right cameras as well, then you will never have to look up from the handle bars. Only $199 from Hammacher Schlemmer

The lonely stalker
For only $25 at Pillowmob you can create a pillow of your loved ones face. Then you can snuggle (or sit on them) all day. What a bargain!

Thirsty houseguests
An alcohol combination lock. This way no one can top up their drinks until you are ready. Everyone gets drunk equally. From on Amazon for $19.97

The dog
Rex will love the world being opened up like this. He can watch for the postman from the comfort of his yard.  $34.98 at Pet Peek

The Cat
Fluffy will go nuts for this Unicorn horn and it's only $4.25 from Amazon.

I hope I have helped with your Christmas shopping.

  5. The Drum Shirt is a winner, for sure. My husband was given one similar as a joke. He wore it to a work fancy dress party and at least 10 people offered him $50 for a $10 shirt from Malaysia. Classic!

  10. You could combine a few of these. The stalker pillow thing for your dog for when you're out all day. Just don't be offended when he's chewed your face off by the time you get home! x

  25. I like the pillow idea but in the absence of a real life partner would have to be a bit stalker-ish and get Richard Armitage's face on there I think. (Hmmm... wonder if they come in life size options!)
