TWQ: Useless Catalogue Gift Ideas

TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks about adding gift ideas of your own in those catalogues.

Can you think of any useless gift ideas that you would include in those catalogues that come round, trying to persuade we really need them...but never do? Use your imagination!

My answers are:

1: Potato washer....put all your dirty potatoes in the Potato Washer before peeling!

2: His and hers personalised pillows...makes sure your lover does not use your pillow.

Now it's over to you...

Always fun challenges here at the weekend. There are so many useless items already in those catalogues. I'm trying to think of some that could be a little bit space age...

1) Space camouflage tanning lotion - to aid invisibility in deep space.
2) Flotation tank cords - to keep in place when using a flotation for meditation tank in orbit.
3) Low oxygen meditation candles - for spaceside chillout.
4) Long range lost key finder - avoid embarrassment after beaming back on board and then not being able to unlock the spaceship.

I think thats enough. Tanya advised me to beam across this way.

what about a rear view mirror so we could see if our rear was too big?

or a "front" scratcher instead of a back scratcher.

No, but this reminds me of an interesting problem my best buddy had around Christmas. He was dating 3 women (unknown to each other, of course). He said: "I want to get them something significant and yet...insignificant". He took my suggestion for 3 identical gift baskets of soaps and pampering stuff. It worked for quite a while!

Here's a couple that really do exist that have ME baffled:

- The Girlfriend Pillow
- The Boyfriend Pillow

But then again, you can safely cry into them, punch them out, ignore them, sit on them...all the things you can't always comfortably do with a real boyfriend/girlfriend.

How about a subscription to a catalogue of the catalogues?
