#4 ‘Giant Green Hand’ Drinks Holder.
This big green fist, which for legal reasons is called ‘The Beast Giant Fist Drink Kooler’, obviously doesn’t have the correct rights to use ‘Hulk’. But, for all intents and purposes, this gift would suit somebody who is a Marval comic fan, and for someone who likes drink! That’s a lot of people…
#5 Shrimp Neck Pillow
Shrimp neck pillow. Yep, it’s a neck pillow which looks like a shrimp. Not much else to say about it really, but do yourself a favor and look at the customer images, there is one with a dog and its super funny.
#6 Darth Vadar Shower
The awesome Vadar shower head is by ‘Oxygenics’, which is a cool ass name for a company! You can also pick up the R2-D2 shower head on Amazon all though, it doesn’t work quite as well as the Darth Vadar shower head in terms of aesthetics. Hey, maybe they should do one of Kylo Ren too, since he speant most of the new Star Wars movies crying and weeping.
#7 Avocado Plant Growing Kit
The Avocado plant growing kit is a super cool and unique gift, it’s like a floating planting bed you place onto some water, simply change the water every 2 weeks and let the boat planter do the rest, and voila, you will have a cool little avocado plant. A great and unique gift for somebody.

The product also comes with some hot dog tongs so you don’t get burnt when removing the hot dogs. The drip tray slides out for easy cleaning. A cord wrap keeps the cord neatly wrapped up under the toaster. It also quote: ‘works with other dogs’, I’m sure that phrase makes sense to our American readers.
#11 Hammock Camping Portable Double Tree Hammock
If you know a guy who loves camping or an outdoorsy kind of guy grab them this affordable super strong camping hammock. This hammock can hold 1000 lbs! That’s over three Brock Lesnars, or to put it another way, it can carry at least one right whale testical.

#17 Grow Your own Zombie Plant Kit
The so called ‘zombie plant’, also known as the shameplant (Mimosa Pudica), is a member of the pea family, whose latin names means ‘shy’ and is native to South and central America. The leaves will automatically fold when they are touched, as a defence mechanism, we’re guessing to avoid being eaten by insects. Check out one of the customer videos in the link which shows the zombie plant folding and appearing to die when touched, this is one hell of a unique accent plant!
#18 Into Thin Air
We wrote about this book in our 5 books every man should read article. This is the ideal book for a guy you know who loves reading, providing they havn’t read it before.
From our article:
”Based on the 1996 Mount Everest Disaster, Jon Krakuaer, a journo accompanying the doomed 1996 accent, recounts the horrors of the storm at 29000 feet, in which 8 people died. You may have seen the brilliant movie ‘Everest’ based on the same event, but the book is (as they usually are) a much more personal and in depth narration of the disaster. I came away from the movie wanting more, and this book satisfied that void….”
