    My husband would KILL for the Jedi bathrobe. Seriously. It would be his idea of one of the best Christmas gifts EVAH.

     I know a LOT of men who would love that bathrobe! You should get it for him as a surprise.

    Great list, except….I love that dang water bottle.  That SPECIAL TIME  THE month always demands one on the lower back and having it wrapped in cashmere ….. delightful!!!

     Add it to your list– but I warn you. It’ll set you back $49… 🙂

     Yes! That’s why I want it too. And now I have a bunch of new hot water bottle appropriate ailments thanks to MEAN-O-PA– USE.

    Bwa ha ha. I love it when you focus on bad gift. But, um, gulp, I actually want the cashmere hot water bottle…and I have thought about getting something like the cleaning trolley for my daughter, who loves to clean, and I actually (double gulp) had the microbe toys on my list this year for both children. I guess I’m bad.

     So bad you’re GOOD, Kathy. 😉  I may or may not have a toy vacuum somewhere in the back of the coat closet that my son LOVED to play with. I’m not saying.

    I got my daughter a cleaning toy set last Christmas, but now I realize that she does the best cleaning with just a box of baby wipes, so that will be her gift this year. 😉

    I still buy baby wipes, even though my kids have technically outgrown them. They’re good for so many things…

    I did get my brother one of the microbes one year– it was anthrax in a petri dish– however, he is an aerosol biologist who works with anthrax regularly– so he LOVED it to sit out on his desk 🙂

     That’s hilarious. I think the microbes are funny- and I get a kick out of imagining someone buying them for children.

    Oh my Gawd, that ornament for the dearly deceased?  Too funny!  Surely no sane person would want that hanging on their tree. People are so weird…

     I can’t believe they’re selling scratched and dented ones on discount! “For when you don’t care enough to send the very best.”

    I kept laughing harder at each one! I’m thinking of getting Ellen the cleaning set for Christmas. We can bring it to a hotel next time we go. Maybe they will knock money off our bill if we clean ourselves…

    I just don’t understand why none of these mini vacuums actually work. Would that be so hard, toymakers??!!

    Okay, the Jedi bathrobe I would actually get for my husband. 🙂 If I hadn’t already spent his Christmas budget this year. But next year? It’ll be under the tree! I would also probably get him the toilet mug. Trust me, it would be appropriate! LOL

     Oh I think a LOT of husbands will be getting this jedi robe this year. There’s also Yoda, R2D2 and Sith robes. SEX-AY.

    My mother law gave us that ornament when my brother in law died. It is so creepy and depressing. Just what I want on my tree. “I’m spending christmas with jesus this year” I just never take it out. I know many who would love the bathrobe.

    Okay, I admit it. I love the periodic table blocks. There, I said it.

    I actually bought that toilet mug for my mother in law two years ago. Ha ha ha!

    That departed loved one Christmas ornament is absolutely horrid!  I hope it would be used as a gag gift!
