Say Goodbye To Old BORING Holiday Gifts

Say Goodbye to the Same Old BORING Holiday Gifts with Kangaroo Poo Jewellery,
Nipple Warmers or an Electric Butt Warmer

Looking for Christmas gift inspiration? Well, look no further.

Two internet entrepreneurs on the World's Edge are giving away an eBook to help you find the most outrageous gifts ever.

Ross Stokes and Kathy Crockett from the world’s most eastern city (Gisborne, New Zealand) say 27 Unusual and Outrageous Christmas Gift Ideas will make boring Christmas gifts a thing of the past. Wacky gift ideas include kangaroo poo ear-rings, oppossum fur nipple warmers and an electric golf seat cover. This hilarious book also tells readers how to buy an acre of the moon or a mini-ranch of their very own (available in Texas for just $19.95). And for the ultimate in personalised gift-giving, it shows where to go to have an actual star named after a friend, or your DNA stored in a tin.

"Yes, these unusual gift ideas are intended to inspire you," say Stokes and Crockett. "They'll prove that the perfect gift for the most difficult person can be found One guy's already written to tell us he's bought two Monthly Doos calendars for friends after reading about them in our book.

But the pair say their real aim is to get people thinking outside the square. "We love ideas and this is a great time to share our belief that the more ideas you have, the more you'll get," says Stokes.

The idea for this particular eBook came after the business partners released their 'business brainstorming bible' ( earlier this year.

"Our Christmas gift book is a spin-off from our research into unusual business ideas. After publishing 227 Unusual Business Ideas, we were left with hundreds of unusual ideas… and a lot of these businesses were ones that sold gifts," says Crockett.
