Website of Weirdly Awesome Gifts

Have you ever been clicking around on the Internet and accidentally stumbled across an amazing website? That happened to me recently, and I thought to myself, “Jackpot!”

The website, www.Vat19.com, sells all kinds of weirdly awesome gifts you would never find anywhere else. You have to check out for yourself the unique gifts, food, toys, home decor, clothing, and gifts they sell.

If you’re looking for weird or awesome gifts for children and adults, Vat19.com has something you’ll think is perfect.

Food Gifts

Let me give you a taste…

They have the World’s Largest Sour Gummy Worm weighing in at 3 pounds and a Gigantic Lollipop that is 65 times larger than a normal sucker. They also sell Bacon Popcorn!

Novelty Games

The website sells the Human Slingshot which turns human bodies into bouncing pinballs inside a giant stretchable band. Not crazy or wild enough for your needs? How about the “What’s That Smell? Party Game” that includes scents of toe cheese, diaper blowout, B.O., and hot chunky vomit. I dare you to play that game!

Home Decor Gifts

The Gummy Bear Chair is an inflatable arm chair that looks like a gummy bear, and the Hatching Dinosaur Candle melts to reveal a baby velociraptor.

Prank Gifts

They even have prank gifts like the “Prank Thank You Card” that plays music that can’t be turned off. The music plays on for 3 or more hours until the battery dies. For a tricky twist, if the person tries to rip up the card to get to the battery to make the music stop, a hidden glitter bomb inside the card will explode in their face.

The Stank Prank Candle also has a tricky twist. It starts off with a wonderful scent of sweet apples and then a few hours later it smells like farts.

Can’t decide on just one weirdly awesome gift? Then go with the Mysterious Box of Mystery!

Whether it’s something one-of-a-kind for him, her, or the kids, there’s a gift for everyone at Vat19.com.

Weird is a side-effect of awesome.

April Fools’ Day Pranks

April Fools’ Day is so much fun and it doesn’t matter whether you are in on the prank or the recipient of the joke!

I remember my very first office prank in the 1970s. I left a message for my boss to call Mr. Lyon. Secretly, the number was to the Oklahoma City Zoo.

When my boss called the number, he heard a recording of Mr. Lyon saying “April Fools!” We both got a kick out of it but by today’s standards seems kind of lame.

Today’s pranks are so much more elaborate.

For example, completely aluminum foil an entire office–the desk, computer, keyboard, phone, calculator, pictures, chair, bookcase, pens, pencils, everything! Or cover an entire car with sticky notes!

Macarons Gift Boxes & Bouquets

Is it macarons or macaroons?

macarons-gift-box-edible-cookieI found out recently there IS a difference between the two besides the spelling. A macaroon is coconut based.

For this gift idea, I’m referring to macarons, which are meringue based and come in a wide range of colors and flavors.

There are SO many colors and flavors to choose from which makes it fun to give someone a variety!

If you’ve never had a macaron, it’s a delicate cookie with two thin crusts and a filling made of either ganache, buttercream or fruit jam.

It’s also full of contrasts. A macaron packs huge flavor into a tiny baked goodie, and it’s somehow both rich and light at the same time.

They come in delicious flavors such as mint chocolate, cookies and cream, mojito, honey lavender, lemon tart, and piña colada. Is your mouth watering yet? Because I’m just scratching the surface on the different types of macaron flavors out there.

Edge Brownie Pan

For as long as I have known my husband, he loves eating the chewy edges of a brownie. One problem, there are only four edges to a regular pan.

Edge-Brownie-Pan-thoughtful-gift-idea

Guess what? Problem solved! I found a unique pan called the Edge Brownie Pan.

Made in the USA, this patented pan adds more chewy edges to every brownie it bakes. Now my husband is in brownie heaven!

The Brownie Pan for Edge Lovers

The Edge Brownie Pan is super heavy-duty and non-stick so it will never warp (like my other brownie pan). It’s also a lot easier to clean (a must for me).

I was not expecting a surprise bonus inside the box. A spatula and recipes–a thoughtful twist for their customers!

The recipes looked delicious for Marbled Cheesecake Brownies, Raspberry Pecan Blondies, Signature Cookie Bars (chocolate chips) and… the Ultimate Brownies.
