Handmade Italian Ceramic Marbles

I adore toys. I love handmade toys and I love mass produced toys but I do love handmade toys just a wee bit more. These handmade marbles are a particularly impressive example of what a handmade toy can be.
I was a marble collector when I was a kid (and I'll bet many of you were too) and I'm sure these individually marbelized by hand ceramic marbles would have rocked my little world.

Zirh Warrior Collection Shower Gels

The Zirh Warrior Collection of concentrated shower gels features scents inspired by legendary figures like Alexander the Great, Charlemagne, Ulysses, Cyrus and Julius Caesar. I'm really curious about these as they have natural extracts of things like carrot, almond, sesame, chestnut seed and olive and I really love the concept. I bet they'd make a really interesting gift, especially for a history buff.
I wonder what each of these men would think of the scent that was chosen for them?

Skull Sleeping Chamber

This Skull Sleeping Chamber is an original bed design by Joep van Lieshout that offers a very different type of sleep experience. Psychologically, I'm not sure I could climb into a skull for a good night's rest but comfort isn't necessarily the focus of this piece of art! Who knows, this skull sleeping chamber may help us come to terms with our own mortality...and it would also make a wonderful conversation piece.

Drip Stem Glasses

These Drip Stem Glasses are really pretty with their lovely red color "drip" that goes down the glass and I'd love to see what they look like when they're filled with wine! The drip effect is subtle but interesting and I think these would look fantastic at a party.

The Mob Boss Bank

This Mob Boss Bank is sure to protect your money but I wouldn't want to cross him or you might end up sleeping with the fishes. When you insert money in the bank the mob boss says one of the six following cliché phrases:

"I think this could be the start of something good!"
"A lot of money for a little person"
"You dirty rat"
"Hey wise guy that all you got!"
"You bring shame on the family"
"Not bad, not bad, what else you got"

Super Mario Mushroom Scarf

Bundle up your little mushrooms because it's getting chilly outside! Of all the Nintendo scarves I've seen, I have to say that this is my favorite so far. There's just something about the look on the mushrooms' faces and the light fluffy clouds...very cute. This super super mario mushroom scarf was made specifically for a swap on Craftster (made by LauPre for ThatsWhatSheSaid).

Glass Card Shark Tumblers With Stirrers

These Card Shark tumblers have card suits on them in a fun and bright tiled pattern and they come with really cute dice stirrers! I think they would make a really interesting and thoughtful gift for the high roller in your life.

Funhouse Static Cling Stickers

These Funhouse static cling stickers are so much fun and it's like they were marketing directly to me with their 3 full sheets of neon leopard print glasses, zorro mask, mustaches, devil horns and eyepatch stickers! It might be tempting for someone to stick some of these on the bathroom mirror at their workplace.

Love Sick Plates

These Love Sick melamine plates by Charles S. Anderson have floral backgrounds with love images like an anatomical heart with an arrow through it, some cute and cartoony retro style females including one with tattoos of men's names down her arm, and a really fancy diamond ring! Love may break your heart but these gorgeous plates might start the healing process.

Silver Honey Bee

Pretty, pretty honey bee. This silver honey bee honey jar design is a really clever idea and it does look lovely! It would make a good, original gift idea for someone who has almost everything...and loves honey.

3D Spooky Cardboard Bat Chandelier

This slightly spooky cardboard bat chandelier is really pretty and if you're looking for some classy but inexpensive decorations for a halloween party this thing is a great deal at just $4.99! The simple design also makes me want to make some similar decorations in the same vein with cardboard. It's such a versatile material.

Milk and Cookies Soap!

Mmmm...these bars of milk and cookies soap look like they have a little glass of milk and a cookie trapped inside and they smell like chocolate chip cookies too! These cute bars of soap are made by sunbasilgarden who also makes Pancakes, Bacon and Eggs Soap and Buttered Toast Soap that smells like fresh baked bread! Pretty cool, huh? Darn, I'm getting hungry now.

Katamari Wedding Cake

This Katamari Damacy wedding cake is really cute and it's obvious that the creator of the cake (Mike's Amazing Cakes) spent a lot of time on it. Unlike most weddings I've been to I bet this particular wedding was a whole lot of fun!

Louise Tray by Ibride

This artistic Louise tray by Ibride is so pretty with its beautiful image and interesting edges! I have really fallen in love with this one but there are many more truly great trays by Ibride available from Stunning.

The Beatles and Elvis Jukeboxes

The Beatles and Elvis Jukeboxes pictured below are pretty snazzy, I think. Very bright and colorful and honestly, who doesn't want to have a jukebox? I remember when I was growing up that my uncle had one and I was in awe...his definitely wasn't as bright and shiny as these though but it was certainly one of the coolest ones I had ever seen.

Girls Always Make Passes At Guys With Mustaches T-Shirts and Gifts

Men with mustaches, beards and facial hair are sexy and it's about time we told the world!
This funny vintage retro t-shirt design says "Girls Always Make Passes At Guys With Mustaches". Thought mustaches were only popular in the 70s? No way, mustaches are awesome and it's time to get the word out about our love for mustaches, beards, chops and facial hair! As always, this design is available on awesome t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, stickers, buttons, mousepads, greeting cards, mugs, bumper stickers, postcards, buttons, magnets, tote bags and many more great gift ideas!
Respect the mustache.
