The most bizarre Christmas gifts of 2016

01 Dec 2016

There is always pressure when picking the perfect Christmas gifts for friends and family during the festive period. Whether it is a bottle of aftershave or another set of new pajamas, everyone dread’s the yearly Christmas shop.

This year we have decided to make your life a little easier, or perhaps just a little more unusual. We have trolled through the websites and have brought to you ten of the most bizarre Christmas gifts of 2016:

Sprout Roulette

Are you ready to take the sprout challenge? We know that sprouts don’t tend to be many people’s favourite trimming on Christmas day but these aren’t the conventional brussel sprouts that you are used to. Spin the wheel of fun and take a chance on what flavour you get- sweet, savoury, delicious or disgusting. With 12 identical chocolates inside, you could end up with one of the six nasty or nice flavours. Dare you take the challenge?

A scented Macaroon coin purse

Have you ever wished you had a coin purse shaped like a macaron that also smelled like one? Probably not, until you found out they made them! These purses don’t only look good enough to eat but they also smell like an actual macaroon too.

Unicorn tears gin liqueur

This year we are bringing to you the ultimate alcoholic gift, a unicorn tear gin liqueur. This gin is claimed to be made from real unicorn tears but really it is a sweet infusion of citrus fruit, oranges, juniper berries, bunches of coriander, and sticks of liquorice. This concoction results in a bittersweet gin experience and a rainbow-like glittery appearance that will blow your mind.

Star Wars BB-8™ Interactive Force Band

This Christmas you can take your Jedi training to the next level with the Star Wars Force Band.  Designed with an authentic look and feel, you can use your band to complete Combat training for Blasters, Lightsabers, and the Force itself.  If that didn’t sound exciting enough, you can also buy the BB-8 droid and with just a wave of your hand you can master moves like Force push and pull.

Obama Llama Game

Christmas time is always filled with traditional games like charades and pin the nose on Rudolph. This year see’s the introduction of the Obama Llama game. A weird and wonderful family party rhyming game, rhyming celebrity names with random words. One player describes the celebrities name and their team has to shout out a word that rhymes, sounds fun right? There’s Tom Cruise in his platform shoes, Angelina Jolie eating ravioli and of course Barack Obama riding a llama.
