It’s Christmastime, and that means shoppers are scrambling to get that perfect gift for their loved ones.
But sometimes it seems like the one you want to gift has everything they ever wanted, and it is really hard to shop for him or her. While there are places for neckties and gift cards, they aren’t as exciting as a car or pony.
Unfortunately, some of us aren’t made of money and we can’t always afford the best or most expensive gift. To top it off, a lot of us need help.
There are creative, and strange, gifts that everyone secretly wants in his or her home. So here are a few crazy yet amazing products you can buy as Christmas presents.
Yes, it’s the weird stool you have seen in commercials with that unicorn. This may seem like a very awkward gift, but it is suppose to make doing your business much easier. Humans were made to go to the bathroom in the squatting position, and this handy stool props your feet up for comfort and easy flow. You may laugh, but it’s doctor-recommended, providing relief from constipation, bloating, hemorrhoids and irritable bowel syndrome. And besides, no one needs to know how you do your business. That’s your business.

No longer do men have to grow their whiskers to stay warm. This winter headgear comes with a knitted beard to shield your cheeks and chin from the harsh, cold wind.
