12 Days of Awesomely Geeky Gifts: Silliness Is Coming To Town cia Archie McPhee

The people on your gift list are probably just as quirky as you are. That’s a good thing. For seriously silly gift-giving, head to Archie McPhee.

iPlunge mcphee.com

Your gift recipient will probably get it when you wrap up this tiny plunger made of wood and rubber (just like its larger counterpart). Except this plunger isn’t meant to be used for unspeakably germy purposes. The iPlunge squishes against the hard surface of any electronic device, thereby allowing it to stand up at an angle. No word on whether it makes that characteristic plunger sound when you detach it.

Chillbots mcphee.com

And who doesn’t need to do more chilling out? With robots?

The Chillbots Ice Cube Tray lets your gift recipient keep cool by plunking frozen robots in their drinks, all made in this rubber ice cube tray.

Cthulhu water bottle mcphee.com

For those who take thirst very seriously, let them drink water from a stainless steel bottle adorned with the frightening image of Cthulhu.

Pi Pie Puzzle mcphee.com

Head in the direction of educational amusement with the Pi Pie Puzzle.

For added value the puzzle is double-sided. A cherry pie on one side, a pie tin showing pi carried to 400 decimal places on the other side.

Nacho Lip Balm mcphee.com

And don’t forget the ever-useful lip balm. But kick it up a bit. Choose from flavored varieties like Nacho Cheese Lip Balm, Bacon Lip Balm, Wasabi Lip Balm, and Absinthe Lip Balm.
