These three completely useless but useable gifts can be given with the intention of making someone giggle and then the shock that they can actually be useful.
Nobody Really Needs Knee Warmers Do They?
Looking at these funny items, my first thought was; not something I need ... but with my bum knees something I could throw on from time to time for a little added support and warmth.
Another thought that ran through my head, if I ever washed the floors on my knees again (highly doubtful) I could put these on for comfort.
How about creating a new fashion trend - well teenagers maybe. For added warmth, they could put them over leggings.
Figure skaters would be the best candidates for these. Having spent over 10 years in this sport in my youth, I can safely say that falling is a part of learning ... especially when you're learning jumps. Learning jumps normally involves a harness, but not usually outside a lesson with your coach. Give these as a funky knee covering for the figure skater in the family. Who knows, you may encourage a new trend in the Skating Club. Anything's possible; I think I invented the skating skirt?
How About a Brain Hat? What?
Is there a genius in the family? Get a big laugh from the person who opens this wacky gift.
If you know how to knit, DIY this puppy. If not, get a few as freaky odd ball gifts for the out-standing people in your life.
We all have weird superstitions: This hat could become their needed 'Thinking Cap' to inspire new ideas. When creativity is required, they may pull on the hat and believe in it's powers. After-all, we're only limited by our thinking. Everybody in the family may want one. Better yet, wear them skiing.
Use them for Halloween. Mom and dad would look very confident trotting around with their brains on their head whilst the kids trick-or-treat.
Of course, a brain hat is just what the doctored ordered for the little-Miss-or-Mr-Know-it-All in the family. Better yet, collect a few for the Secret Santa draw.
Need? Nope. No needing these. But they sure area a funky way to light up a room. Imagine collecting a set of these and having a party where everyone is served a lighted drink. The ambience would be magnificent.
Use them for weddings, birthdays, Halloween parties, Christmas and especially New Years. Begin a collection for someone; keep adding to it - After-all, funk makes the world go 'round.
Imagine movie night at home with these cool glasses ... All the lights out except for people's drinking glasses.
How about an original teacher gift? There's no way Teacher is going to be buying herself/himself one of these, and you're sure to be the only one to show up with it.
Well there you have it, three affordable things nobody needs but somebody wants.
