Stellar Gifts for the Impossible to Buy For

Posted by on December 20, 2012
It always comes down to that last few names on the list that are impossible to buy for.  They either already have everything they want, or they don't have a lot of hobbies to work with, or you have given them everything you could ever think of already.  I mean, you can only buy so many golf balls, calendars, candles, and shirts before even you are bored with the gift, which means they probably are too. Dr. Smooth has come to the rescue on this one with some web-browsing on  He found some fan-freakin'-tastic gift ideas that will certainly make this a Christmas that the impossible-to-buy-for won't soon forget!

#1.  TheJetLev R200

Water Jet Pack JetLev R200 (video link to see it in action!) If your holiday shopping list includes an adventurist or water sports enthusiast who is impossible to buy for, then Dr. Smooth has quite the solution for you!  For a mere $100,000 your family member or friend could be soaring 30 ft above the water!    (The video helpfully points out that the boat that powers the jet pack follows you as you fly.  Good to know since without the boat's power I'd be plummeting into the water weighted down by the jet pack and the huge black tube.)  They say it's "surprisingly smooth", but seeing as how I can't even stay afloat on a raft, I don't think I'll be the envy of all my friends as I maneuver my own jet pack around yachts as shown in the video.  But hey, Dr. Smooth is definitely willing to try this one.  So if he's on your list and you're not done shopping. . .

#2.  Water Playground

Floating Playground Get more info here! If someone on your list has their very own backyard lake and plenty of hot air, you could buy them this cool playground.  According to, this is the perfect alternative to buying expensive tickets to privately-owned water parks.  Because if you have your own private backyard lake and friends that can spend $69,995 on a playground to go in your private lake, I am sure that expensive water park tickets are a real concern.  And look at those slides. . . Whee!!! Just as much fun as Wet 'n Wild any day of the week.  And it holds up to 60 people for the recipient to supervise in their own private lake.  That's a drowning party waiting to happen!

#3.  Flying Car

flying-car         Flying Car (more info!) Finally, a gift that is quite practical, even for those people who are impossible to buy for!  I would never be late again if someone bought me this! (Okay, who am I kidding?  I would STILL be late, but I'd have more fun getting there!)  It can drive on the highway up to 65 mph and then it can fly up to 115 mph.  The website link to the manufacturer advises that the flying car is "indispensable for easy day trips from Long Island to Martha's Vineyard" but I'm thinking it would be great from home to Target on the day after Christmas for the door-buster sales!  A steal at $350,000, but I'm not sure what the highway estimate is for fuel consumption.

#4.  A Hidden Patio Pool!

Hidden Patio Pool Hidden Patio Pool (video link to see it in action) For the mere sum of $65,000 you could purchase someone a pool that will disappear and become a patio. You may know people that have a pool surrounded by a patio, but how many people do you know who have a patio that literally becomes a pool?  Think how helpful that could be for someone with annoying neighbors or family members that bring their runny-nosed poopy-diaper kids over to swim in the pool!  Waalaaah!  We don't have a pool!!!!!  Instead, they could play on the patio, which could then be hosed and bleached quite easily.  And if your impossible-to-buy-for has a small back yard, then SCORE!!  You've now found them the perfect gift!

#5.  Royal Toilet Throne

Herbeau Dagobert Wooden Throne Toilet Get all the details for this crapper here! Now you can let that impossible to buy for person in your life know how you really feel about them!  That they are royalty!!!!  I can pretty much guarantee you that no one on your list will already have this at home.  It plays music as they lift the lid, a bell rings when the flush is complete, and there is even a candle in case the power goes out while they are. . .on the throne.   Be confident in your purchase knowing that out of five really bizarre reviews on, this toilet scored an average of 4.2 out of 5 stars.  And it's on clearance sale!! The website lists it for $11,977.50, but is currently listing it for $11,298.  A bargain on a bowl!

#6.  Something for the Ladies!!

Obviously any of the great gift ideas would work for a lady or a gent, but just in case you have an impossible to buy for fashionista on your list, we wanted to make sure you had options when shopping. Stuck Chewing Gum High Heels A Chewing Gum Shoe.  No kidding.  If you click on nothing else in this post,  YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT THIS DUDE'S SHOE COLLECTION! Your fashionista may have Mahnolos in her closet, but I promise you she doesn't have these.  And what show lover would not be thrilled to find a shoe that is so versatile?  I mean, bubble gum for a heel is casual enough for jeans, but the height of that gum heel would definitely work with a cocktail dress, don't ya think?  These are $2240 on the website, but I'm thinking if we hold out, Payless may do a BOGO sale on these one day, so I'd keep watching the sale papers if I were you! Okay, that's our list.  Dr. Smooth and I have tried to give you a sampling for inspiration, but feel free to head on over to for a plethora of unique gift options.   They even have a fork that has a built-in pizza cutter!!!  Now, that's my idea of a great stocking stuffer!! Seriously, people, the holidays are for spreading joy, love, hope and peace.  Don't get too wrapped up in the gifts and trying to outdo or impress.   Keep it real, keep it heartfelt, and make it memorable for meaning something, not costing something.  Happy Holidays!

    I know you’re thinking that the royal “throne” is for me, but I would really rather have the patio/pool. (just a helpful hint)

    I didn’t see anything in the pictures that just reached and took hold. You are so right that it is the thought and love that really means something.

      That’s a good thing, because we weren’t buying you anything from that list!
