10 Stocking Stuffer Ideas

The Pocket Get Off the Phone Excuse Machine

Nothing says aggravating quite like an annoying phone call you just can’t get away from. The Pocket Get Off the Phone Excuse Machine eliminates that problem once and for all. From a baby crying to a car crashing, you’ll never be without an excuse to get off of the dreaded phone call again!

Whoopie Cushions

People are longing for nostalgia, and simple items like whoopie cushions and hand buzzers are selling like hotcakes. If you want to bring a smile to someone’s face, give them a Whoopie cushion as a stocking stuffer. It’ll be a source of amusement all day long.

The Stella Awards

If you and your friends are the type to get annoyed when someone abuses the civil court system, you’re going to love the Stella Awards by Randy Cassingham. This book makes a great stocking stuffer and highlights the most bizarre of civil lawsuits in a hilarious and entertaining manner. The only thing that’s not funny about this book is that the crazy cases that are highlighted are true!

Half-Eaten Cookies

Getting cookies in your stocking is probably OK, but imagine getting cookies that already have a bite taken out of them! This hilarious cookie cutter will have your friends wondering what you were thinking when you give them cookies that aren’t all there.

The Do-It-Yourself Stocking Stuffer

This stocking stuffer is best for couch potatoes. It's called the "Home Exerciser." Making it is simple. Just take a block of wood and make a sign that you glue onto the wood. The sign says:

Home Exerciser
1. Place the Home Exerciser in the middle of the floor.
2. Walk around the Home Exerciser three times.
3. Take a well deserved break: you've walked around the block three whole times.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians has the honor of being perhaps the worst holiday movie ever made. It not only has a stupid plot, bad acting and ridiculous special effects, but the title alone could qualify it as a really bad movie. But, it's now available on DVD, and it's SO bad that there will be a lot of laughs.

Bobble Heads

Bobble heads also make great stocking stuffers. Figurines with little bodies and big heads that bobble around just seem to make people smile. They’re becoming increasingly popular and are being collected by the young and old alike. From sports to pets, bobble heads are everywhere and the humorous ones always bring a smile to the recipient’s face.

Tiki Tissue Box Holder

This is surely not your ordinary tissue box holder! Whenever someone needs a tissue, they have to pull it from the tiki’s nose. This tiki tissue box holder is sure to bring laughs not just on Christmas morning, but the whole year through.

Funny Face Pacifiers

If you have a baby on your shopping list, these funny face pacifiers make one hilarious stocking stuffer. Unfortunately baby will be too young to benefit from the humor of it, but the adults will be laughing the whole day through.

Snowman Poop

Know someone who was naughty this year? Forget about coal in the stocking -- give them a baggie full of snowman poop instead. A little baggie filled with miniature white marshmallows and a cute little note saying that your naughty friend is getting nothing but snowman poop for Christmas will bring on serious bouts of laughter from all around

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

Robert Frost is my favorite poet. Two Roads Diverged in a Wood would have to be my favorite,
but this poem is my second favorite. Why, Do you ask? I love it because you can almost see yourself
sitting horseback, staring at the woods with snow on the winter solstice, just for the sole purpose of
capturing the captivating beauty of the quiet snow falling to cover the woods. He (the speaker) makes it
clear that he has somewhere to be, but yet he stops to take in the awe striking scene. The mood that
frost sets is peaceful and calm, yet mysterious. In the final stanza, the poem brings the whole scene together,

an intense love and awe of nature, a never ending patience and some unknown task or problem that robs the
speaker of rest. The dark and deep woods seem to reflect the speakers mood of tiredness. And the miles to go
before i sleep says that he has a responsibility to do. So, what do i think this poem is saying...
To me, the poem is inspiring. The speaker is tired, but yet h e stops to witness the beauty. The horse
think that is is odd tells me that it isnt something that the driver dies often but that he needs a break from his
responsibilities to have time to himself, to reflect, even if its just for that moment. What i get out of it is that
we need to appreciate the things that are around us. Even if its just for that one moment. We need to spend time
to look for the little things in life and be grateful for them. We shouldn't be so caught up in everything else that
we forget to look, and fail to see the beauty of things.
o as this year comes to a close. Appreciate the things that you have, help those in need and look around.

You just might see something unforgettable.

Christmas Countdown

Hey Everyone

Just wanted to blog about my day off. I am so glad that this week is over. Work has been pretty good and bad all at the same time. We found out at work Thrusday that my work was 26% over our sales for this year so we got a extra week off for christmas. Yay. So now i am off work the 19th thru the 5th. I am so happy! So today i went shopping for the few people i had to buy for yet and let me tell you it was CRAZY. People were everywhere. Drivers were being stupid in the inch of snow we had. Everything was rush rush rush. I think that sometimess people forget the reason for this holiday. Its about giving and being with your friends and family. Not about giving the most expensive gift or even the holiday parties. We are celebrating Christ's birth and people forget that. Just the other day, black friday i think, i heard in the news about how this Walmart employee got trampled by the crowd trying to get in to get the sales. Its sad that those people were so selfish to do that.

Anywaz.... I just want everyone to not forget about the real reason for the season and i hope you all have a great holiday.
