Holiday Shopping Season is Here-What to Get For the “Impossible to Buy For” On your List.

by Matt B

SalvaGuess what? Holiday shopping season is here. Over the next few weeks, you will be overwhelmed by advertising, crowded stores and restaurants, and the joyful stresses of holiday planning. One of these wonderful stresses is figuring out what gifts to get for everyone on your list.

Inevitably, you will have at least one or two people on your list that are impossible to shop for. But what to do? You can get them the same tired old gifts that you always end up resorting to, or you can start early (like right now) and find something that will wow them. Since I’m all about the strange, interesting and hard to find items, here are a few places you can look around to wow that person who has everything they ever wanted.


Elsewares specializes in interesting gift ideas. These are the kind of items that are great conversation pieces. If you want a gift that will make someone take notice, try elsewares.

Taylor Gifts

Want to discretely buy all the awesome stuff you see on infomercials? Taylor gifts has tons of that stuff! But that’s not all. Novelties and household items make this store a great place to find gifts that will make people take notice.

Mookie Gifts

While Mookie gifts slogan is “giftables and collectibles”, only one really fits. I know plenty of people who would enjoy a good number of these items as gifts, but collectibles does not really fit here. If you have a woman in your life that you want to impress with a unique gift, make this your first stop.

X-treme Geek

Got someone on your list that loves gadgets? X-treme Geek will definitely have something for them! Whether you’re looking for something original, funny, or just want to be noticed by your geek, X-treme Geek will take care of you.

Okay, if you’re looking for novelties, here’s your one stop shop. I have ordered from stupid before, and have never been disappointed. The name says more than enough to back up what it sells.

Things You Never Knew Existed

Like, this is exactly what is sounds like. This store has a bunch of interesting and distinctive potential gifts. If you can’t find something here for that impossible to buy for friend or family member, just stop looking.

Coolest Gadgets

You can not buy directly from this website, but if ideas are what you are looking for, Coolest Gadgets has plenty. This is actually a blog that discusses and announces the gadgets we all love and enjoy. If you do decide to check it out (and like it), head over to their sister site, Foolish Gadgets. After about 2 minutes on the site, I immediately bookmarked it. Some of this stuff is just too idiotic to not talk about.

Well, there is a bit of a start for ya. Please feel free to add other sites you have found that carry weird, interesting, or even gross gift ideas. I love that stuff. Happy shopping!

Looking for a great gift idea or stocking stuffers for family, friends, and co-workers, the new fantasy novel, “Gateway to DreamWorld,” has been receiving rave reviews.

During the cold months ahead, they will curl up in a warm blanket in front of the fireplace and enter a fantasy world filled with excitement and suspense.

The book is listed on, Barnes&, and Powell’s
