bobblehead christmas gift

Mini me

Get it here:

How much: From $80. Orders take two to four weeks.

For a gift that’s truly out of this world, snap up a piece of intergalactic real estate – say a few acres on the moon, or a chunk of land on Mars?

Twenty years ago US man Dennis M Hope made a land claim for the moon and the eight planets in our solar system and since then has sold more than 12 million extraterrestrial land lots.

Get it here:

Make them a Knight or Dame of the Sovereign Military Order of Sealand.

Get it here:

How much: from $55.

Canned unicorn meat.

How about a can of tinned unicorn meat to add a unique flavour to their next picnic? With sparkles in the meat, and crunchy horn pieces in each mouthful. Tastes like chicken, with a hint of marshmallow.

Get it here:

How much: $24.95. The Radiant Farms Unicorn Meat tin actually contains a dismembered soft toy unicorn.

A blow-up walking frame is a cheeky way to take a gentle dig at an older friend. It won’t support their weight, but it will send an amusing message about their age.
