Holiday Gift Ideas – Gifts with a Snarky Attitude

My brother and I have a tradition of giving each other snarky (by that I mean obnoxious) Christmas gifts.  I’m always on the lookout for something exceptional.  Here’s my short list for 2013.

What do you think?  What’s the best gift for a bratty younger brother?  Suggestion are welcome!

Rouge Beard Beer

This beer is made with yeast scraped from the brewer’s beard.  It sounds disgusting.  And perfect.

Since Rogue’s beers are generally pretty good, I suspect this tastes great.  If beard yeast is not your thing, Rogue’s line of Voodoo donuts beers also look fun.  Unfortunately I can’t ship beer to Massachusetts so this won’t work for me.

Kopi Luwak Coffee

You may have heard of this coffee, it’s made from beans that have passed through the digestive tract of a civet.  Ewww.

At $70 it’s a bit pricey if you’re just looking for a gag gift.

Thanks to Kat for inspiring this choice.  She received this coffee as a gift and is pretty freaked out by the idea of it.

Twinkie Cookbook

This would be perfect paired with a box of Twinkies (now that the threat of Twinkie extinction is past).

Cat Calendar

You need to know your audience.  My brother hates adorable cat merchandise so this is perfect for him.

Calendars featuring nuns are also an excellent choice.

Horse Head Wine Pourer

We came across these animal head wine pourers while tasting in Napa.  So my judgement may have been a wee bit compromised when I decided they were hilarious.

Ballsy Pillow

This one is for my mom.  Do I dare?
