02/23/2015 01:49 pm ET

First, there was the Snuggie, the blanket you wear.

Then, there was The Necky, a little blanket you wear around your neck.

Now, the latest blanket fashion statement is the Face Blanket, a little blanket with a hole in it that is worn over the face.

As this video from WTFark demonstrates, the sellers of the product go to outrageous lengths to convince potential customers the $9.99 Face Blanket is the solution for all of life's pressing problems.

    You have to be unusually close to a person for underwear to be an appropriate Christmas gift. And it's definitely a weird relationship if they give you underwear that includes a pre-stained skidmark on the back. Some gifts are better opened in private.
  • Runny Nose Shower Gel Dispenser

    Let's face it: Getting gel in the shower is a hassle. You risk back injury bending over to get the bottle on the floor or waste valuable shelf space that could be used for hair conditioner. This Runny Nose Shower Gel Dispenser sticks on the wall, thus saving space. The fact that it looks like a nose oozing strange-colored mucous is just icing on the cake.
  • Pet Poop-Shaped Candy
    EatCandyCrap.com
    Chocolate is a great gift, but can seem a little generic. If you buy candy shaped like dog and cat poop, there is no doubt that your loved ones will know you were thinking of them (whether or not they like what you were thinking is not your problem). And unlike normal pet poop, this product is endorsed by a celebrity --- former 'Brady Bunch' cast member Susan Olsen -- so it has to be good (or at least not taste like actual animal feces).

  • Hip Hop Chocolates

    The cost of getting someone two turntables and a microphone could make a dent on your holiday gift budget, but these hip hop chocolates that come in the shapes of cassette tapes, soundboards and boom boxes will be a sweet alternative.
  • Moose Mitt
    Overstock.com
    Oven mitts are a basic product: A glove that is able to handle hot temperatures. Utlitarian, but boring. That is, unless your oven mitt comes in the shape of a moose head. Think of all the fun you'll have imitating Bullwinkle as you pull the turkey out of the oven. Think of all the irritation your loved ones will experience after the second time you imitate Bullwinkle as you pull the turkey out of the oven.

    Jewelry is always appreciated, but it's not always edgy enough for some people. Thank goodness for the Punckette, the first ring I've seen with a mohawk. It's a stylish way to tell the world, "I don't need to follow your false rules about what really matters! Can you lend me a dollar so I can buy antiseptic for my new belly ring?"
  • Polaroid Toilet Dispenser
    TheGiftsForMen.com
    Toilet dispensers are basic enough, but their design causes people to argue over whether the roll should go over the top or not. The Polaroid Toilet Paper Holder solves that by housing the roll in a replica of an old school camera. Now the big argument won't be about the toilet roll but whether or not the holder is secretly taking pictures.
  • Santa Tuna Fishing Inflatable
    Kmart.com
    Santa may only work one day a year, but that doesn't mean he doesn't daydream about his vacation. Unlike those boring old conventional inflatables that feature Santa on his sleigh, this inflatable puts him on a boat fishing marlin. One word of warning: It doesn't float very well. Yeah, we tried it. Yeah, we know we're idiots.
  • Guitar Made Out Of Oil Can
    BohemianGuitars.com
    Recycling rocks, especially this guitar. Bohemian Guitars use an old oil can for the body and the result is a cool-looking instrument that is also helpful for the environment. The can is hollow and has a screw-off top, making it perfect for smuggling things when you're on tour, man. One drawback: The oil can is wider than most guitars and that can make your beer belly look even bigger when you're onstage.
  • Uncorked Board Game
    Uncorkedgame.com
    Chances are, you may get more than a few bottles of wine for Christmas. That's perfect for this boozy board game where legal adults try and come up with bizarre ways to describe the wine they're drinking. Hopefully, it doesn't last as long as, say, Monopoly, because there is some DUI potential if that's the case.
