Are These Holiday Gifts Stupid or Cool?
If underwear isn't really your thing, do we have the gift for you! Leave your dirty drawers at home and take a Nakation — a naked vacation — with the help of the American Association for Nude Recreation's Nakation in a Box.
For $74, naked travelers will receive a kit that includes the AANR's North American Guide to Nude Recreation — complete with tips for all you first timers out there — an "I'm on Nakation" towel, temporary tattoos (classy) and sunscreen (ouch!)
$74? That seems pretty steep for a kit that doesn't come with any clothes! But, according to the AANR Web site, it's a small price to pay for "the passport to your best vacation ever."
Nothing says it better than the group's slogan: "Put a little naked in your next vacation — you're going to love it!"
Golf Ball Life Vest: Stupid or Cool?
Golf Ball Life Vest, $7.49 on Stupid.com
The next time your shiny, new golf ball is headed for a water hazard, dress it up in the Golf Ball Life Vest, designed to keep your ball afloat when it doesn't quite make it to the green.
Though Stupid.com admits it isn't sure how the neon orange flotation device fits in with the strict and never-evolving rules of golf, it even comes with a real golf ball!
The only drawback: You have to put the jacket on the ball before you swing. If you're that sure you're about to send your brand-new Titleist into the fish-filled abyss, maybe it's time to reconsider your club choice.
Oh, and make sure to keep an eye out for alligators.
Designer Mousetraps: Stupid or Cool?
Designer Mousetraps, from $3 to $13.50 on mousesnaps.com
For those of you sick of looking at unattractive mousetraps in your rat-infested city apartments, there's Mousesnaps — hand-painted mousetraps designed to take some of the ugliness out of catching those wily rodents.
They started in 2008 as a hobby for an aspiring artist who was sick of looking at unsightly traps in her New York apartment. When visitors came over and saw the devices, they offered to buy them right off the floor.
So in May 2009, creator Nova Halliwell and her business partner, Mimi Davis, decided to launch the idea as an official business.
You can order holiday-themed traps, playing card traps and floral-patterned devices. No mice? Remember, they can also be used as Christmas ornaments!
"I realize that we're not exactly selling our product by the truckloads yet, but we've grown substantially in 11 months and we're committed to the idea and the company," Halliwell said.
