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.
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!
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.
I love handmade gifts. I remember watching my mother create beautiful gifts from vintage jewelry.
My mother and I would also help each other handcraft unique gift ideas waaay before Etsy ever came along. Mom would have loved Etsy.com where you can shop for anything made by creative people everywhere and where she could have shared her gifts too!
When an Etsy email pops up, I’m always curious to see who created what. Oh my… what a find this time. Butterflies! They are exquisite!
Wild and Free Jewelry created by Corina Alulquoy Brown are inspired by the ocean, wildlife, and Native American culture. You have to look at her website!
Handmade Butterfly Hair Clips
My favorites are the beautifully handcrafted butterfly hair clips by Corina.
Do you have Hamilton fever? I haven’t seen the musical yet, but I’m obsessed with the soundtrack.
I have my niece, J’menii, to thank for getting me hooked on Hamilton.
This same young lady has a thing for Converse sneakers. I’m not exaggerating when I say she has more than 10 pairs of Converse shoes in her closet. All colors. The girl even wore a pair with her formal dress to high school prom!
J’menii is graduating from high school this year so I decided on a graduation gift that combined her two obsessions and I ended up with Hamilton-themed Custom Painted Converse Shoes!
Custom Hand Painted Shoes
For the shoes, I had an artist paint them gold and black with a couple of logos. Then I had the artist paint phrases from the musical to inspire my niece to kick butt in college and to achieve her goals in life!
The outside right shoe features the Hamilton logo with the words “I’m not throwing away my shot.” The outside left shoe features a silhouette of the Schuyler sisters with the words “Rise Up.”
The inside left shoe reads, “There’s a million things I haven’t done.” The inside right shoe reads “Just you wait…”
