So many cool things on this site within the price range.
EDIT: ~~TWO~~ THREE golds? My dreams have come true!
Full disclosure this is my website. We have thousands of gift ideas for the holidays.
Sort the entire site by price and popularity
You can actually purchase a 'real' one if you're so inclined. By real of course it's really "as close as you can get in the 3 dimensional world". But still a pretty cool conversation piece.
This hot dog shaped hamburger mold.
What, regular hamburgers aren't good enough for you? You just have to pretend you're eating a hot dog for some reason?
I hate to be that guy.... But that ring is commercially available, not custom made. It's been posted on this sub many times. Congrats on the proposal though.
Find something on those sites. Or if you dont want to waste money put it towards something you've always wanted to do, like traveling or take some classes

Correct. And the bristles are from a shitty costume wig and I drilled a hole into the pencil and used Bionic as an adhesive. I got pencil graphite all over my hands when I drilled the holes out and failed to realize that I transferred the mess to my face before I presented the "brushes" to my girlfriend.
Like everything else, it depends on how much you put into it.
The whole, "get an exact match name, write some flimsy content, get backlinks, repeat" doesn't work and you know what? It shouldn't work. You need to be at least vaguely interested in providing some value. It doesn't have to be a cure for cancer, but fake or otherwise aggregated reviews suck.
That being said, there are some immensely successful Amazon Affiliate sites out there which have users who love them. That takes orders of magnitude more work than what you seem to have in mind. Look at [link] or [link]. They provide substantial value to their users, and it's immediately apparent why and how. It's also immediately apparent that they put a ton of effort into doing so. You've gotta give a shit, man. If you're not prepared to do that, then you're ten years late to the game.
Get the pets inside, lock doors, barricade windows, attach my knife to the bottom of my metal cane to make a bayonet type deal. I also thought of this cat armour because it would probably fit my dog.
These days, big army dudes use these knots to make "tactical survival bracelets". Just don't tell them what they're doing is actually called macrame.
description on the inflatable 'walk on water' ball :
"At approximately 7 feet tall, this inflatable walk on water ball will provide hours of fun on the water, and possibly induce claustrophobia."
what about suffocation?
edit: awesome [link]

I think it's just one of those things that you see and think is the coolest thing since bread and slicing; then it gets over-saturated and everyone moves on. See: Video game T-shirts, Hoodies for Cats, or pretty much everything on this website.
oh my god. i just slipped into an envy induced coma. question: would it be considered crass to sell a kidney for a Space Invaders couch?
I go to bed early as fuck when I need to wake up at a set time the next day, like 12 hours before I need to wake up, and let myself wake up naturally, usually getting 7-9 hours sleep, then doing whatever I want before I "have" to be awake.
Also, you might be interested in a mobile alarm clock
I always want the D.
But I think whomever made the mug was supposed to make the handle black like this.
My mom got me the mug for my birthday so I'm not sure where she got it from.
I advertise on Reddit pretty heavily, and I can safely say that there really aren't that many advertisers. The problem is that most companies don't see the value in Reddit ads, and simply overlook it. In actuality Reddit is a really great place to advertise if you have something that fits Reddit's audience (case in point, my website, which has flourished thanks to Reddit). As for the sidebar ads, I believe those have to be specially requested, and probably have a higher cost, since they are not apart of the standard "Self-Serve Advertising" program listed at the bottom of Reddit.
If it were a laser pointer I'd agree, but you can get lasers that are high enough power to kill people if you point it at them and these can cause permanent eye damage even from huge distances [link]
You do know that there is a sizeable chunk of the population that chooses to not wear a seatbelt?
That they have even developed t-shirts to trick officers into thinking they're wearing one.
And there are seat-belt alarm stoppers, to stop your car's seat belt alarm from beeping while you drive unbuckled.
These folks would probably be your best bet, though ordering is a bit of a hassle, and will probably run you several thousand dollars.
While it's not exactly what you want, this is pretty cool.
I still want a kill count holo-tattoo. I'm assuming it's from a tabletop gaming system, but I don't know which. However, it's number 617 on this list. Of course, then I'd have to get a kill count. Before the zombocalypse, people. I don't think I'm ever going to just, you know, be killing people. Especially not for a tattoo count.
In other news, yeah, I'm kind of a dork.
I know this isn't meant to be a critique thread but I bet she gets a million messages about that. (We used to play a game here that was to post the things you get messaged about the most. It was useful because it let us see that people were all hooking into the same things we were and none of us was standing out.)
If something jumps out at you, try to take a different spin on it. Something like "I see your purse-flask and raise you a shoe-flask."
(I mostly just wanted an excuse to google those shoes, I heard about 'em yesterday.)
I'm totally with you. When I was a little girl I thought the wedding should be all about me but now that I'm older I think "Jesus christ that's really unfair!". It's about a union and I can't think of anything farther from unity than a one woman show. If and when I get married I really hope my guy will make it as much about him as me (and also that we can put some cool shit on the registry...almost anything from this is why I'm broke).
This is as far as I got. I don't know if the site is reliable, but it says that the product is discontinued so I guess they never got the patent for it after all.
The price is ~$65k for those who don't want to click the link.
The Tree has to keep dancing cause she gets no breaks, but the Band takes everything around in this, complete with blaring speakers.
Sorry for the tiny image, I'll look for something better.
Edit: It's a JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser/Tank.
I'm a massive sucker for novelty shit. If I was a ~~millionaire~~ billionaire, I would buy everything from this site! There's also some cool things on there for cheap I'd LOVE to buy, unfortunately I am a poor teenager :(
Sleeping with 2 people in an hammock is an awful experience
my and the wife are around 310-320 pounds and we were both in serious pain the day after, taking naps and cuddles is all fine and dandy but sleeping two in it is something I would not wish on my worst enemy
get two hammocks and hang them either right next to each other or bunk bed style ;)
here is a great picture to show what I was talking about
Hmm I'm stuck using a cane for a few months from screwing up my leg. Been looking at other novelty canes or even a cane word but I may need that instead
throwing your life savings into a fad momo chicken joint that's featured on breaking bad. hashtag only ST things
I've never been involved on Twitter. I absolutely HATE the platform.
KiA is constantly driving me away though. It started out as one of these, when it really should have been one of these, but now it's one of these, and 99% of it is useless.
(I'll explain that analogy better if it makes no sense)
Oh god, shipping this must be a nightmare.
Edit: Oh god, some people just want to watch the world burn, literally.
I just shot a few shotgun shells instead of dropping da bomb. And still cops showed up. Had a hard time explaining flower seeds shotgun shells
So basically [link]
Which means yes, it has potential. It's also been done really well already, which really reduces business sale value unless you can get your brand recognition up.
Sites like this rely heavily on organic social media. Lean heavily on share buttons for promotion. I see stuff like this shared on Facebook constantly.
I went as Rorschach last year and got some good praise for my costume (if you are going to do, definitely get a moving inkblot mask ) but you will be a lot more confortable dressed as Alex and be able to see, eat and drink with out haveing to move the mask.
If the mirror has a bulge or isn't perfectly straight it can cause the image to be warped. You can have the same effect by filming yourself and seeing the footage.
Step 1: Buy THIS([link])
Step 2: Cut it out to match your furniture([link])
Step 3: Enjoy
I've had the same problem every fuckin' year since I was like 12, so I just wish for money, clothes and videogames. But this year will be different. Check out This is why I'm broke, and merry christmas to you!
A couple of factors you neglected here. First and foremost with enough water this is not only possible but has been done before. [link]
Secondly, this is the same Mario who can fly with a racoon tail or a cape. He is an overweight plumber who can jump many times his height with little to no effort. So either gravity in the mushroom kingdom is quite different from our earth or Mario isn't fat and is instead packing some anti-gravity tech or some BS like that. Point is looking at established canon proves again and again that Mario flies with devices that should not could not work in real life but they do work in the Mushroom Kingdom, so who's to say that FLUUD can't?
I think it would be a nice additional gift but I'd definitely recommend sending him something to open or at least an amazon voucher for the recommended $20.
You have the entirety of the internet at your disposal and can ship straight to him if postage is expensive. Have a look on [link] if you need some inspiration and use your imagination!!!
Good luck and happy hunting :)
[link] What's that one for super expensive useless shit? There is a website somewhere. It's like, buy your own portable island with complimentary 300 employees for a year, pills that make your poop gold, etc.
For me it was all about gadgets. So I'd browse either Amazon, or This Is Why I'm Broke and find cool shit. For really big milestones I'll choose something that I really want (new laptop, new phone, that sort of thing). It's usually something that I don't immediately need, but really want. So if I hit those milestones, I get to really reward myself.
The website This Is Why I'm Broke might help. Slide the price scale to fit your budget and get some gift suggestions. It'll link you to the vendor's website to buy it. You can also take it a step further and check out what other stuff the external vendor might sell that might not have been listed on This Is Why I'm Broke.
This site, Givetu, can also give you some random suggestions based on price range, age, and your relationship to that person, but doesn't really have other categories to narrow your choices. Still worth a shot, though. It'll link you to the product's page on Amazon.
Edit: Oh, and there's always Think Geek. This is a link to their Under $10 gifts catalogue.
There's lots of etsy stores and stuff that sell jewelery with little food charms and stuff and leggings screen printed with pizza or french fries or whatever.
It's pretty popular with some of the tumblr set.
Here is a french fry bustier for example.
> you'll almost always find some awesome, funky stuff
I found a set of pizza forks at a thrift store about a year ago. I still regret only buying two of the four.
"At the $1200 per year Crossfit gym I'm so motivated by all these fit people doing powerlifts with terrible form, I want to workout so badly right now" well then PUT YOUR GODDAMN PHONE AWAY AND GET TO WORK.
I view Crossfit more as an extreme sport for fit people rather than an actual quality athletic program. WODs are seemingly random with no way for you to really track progression and improvement. For an already fit person who knows a lot of the base techniques and simply wants to physically and mentally challenge themselves, it's fantastic. For an untrained person, Crossfit is terrible. If you can't do a proper pullup, you have no business doing this stupid crap. If you've never done a squat, let alone a powerclean or anything like that, don't go doing Crossfit power cleans. And seriously, who the fuck throws barbells around?
I get it though. Crossfit is inherently easy to pick up but hard to master. It feels a lot better to pump out 30 really shitty pullups with awful form than it does to pump out 3 proper ones. It's nice to feel like part of a ~~cult~~ community with its own rituals, terminology, events, etc. Jumping and power exercises at the gym are hella-fun... moreso than bodybuilding exercises, at least in my opinion, for sure.
I think a better phrase would have been "Just because you can afford something doesn't mean you should buy it." I can easily afford the Flying Fuck Helicopter, but that doesn't mean I should buy it. You have to think rationally about your purchases: the only thing I would do with it is play with it in front of OP to make a point of not giving him one.
Interesting question - I would say the most unexpected thing I have noticed is that things you would expect to drive traffic don't always, and often you are completely blindsided by an activity or site placement which refers hundreds of thousands of visits.
For example, a placement on Mashable would probably be universally accepted as likely to drive hundreds or even thousands of clicks - not always the case.
We've had forum posts on places like MoneySavingExpert.com that have driven thousands of visits in a few hours... [link] is one of the biggest referrers for one of the businesses I am an investor in.

Just off the top of my head although cyberpunk also included re-purposing common or out of favour things in new and interesting ways(ie furbies,baby monitors or whatever else is the pasts forgotten toys).
ThisiswhyImbroke is not a bad place to look and also think geek if you are xmas shopping. Look around once you see something you like because they are not always the best source for the toys once you know what they are called.
The front page is affiliate link heavy, which is intentional for first time visitors. But if you sort by the newest items, or click "What's New" at the top left, pretty much all of the products are non-affiliate links. Either way, we definitely aren't an original site idea - but I'd like to think that nobody is doing it better than us right now in terms of presenting cool, random, quirky, and sometimes WTF type stuff.
Despite how I look most of the time (baggy t-shirts, sloppy jeans, sneakers, bad hair and no make up) I do love girly things.
I adore Hello Kitty, hot pink, and glitter. Anything with one or more of those things and I'm sold. My mom once got me this tiny little stuffed ice cream Hello Kitty thing and I was like :o
I like doing my make up, I love it big and bright and, well, tacky. The brighter the better. I love(d) dying my hair all kinds of unnatural colors. I've had orange, pink, green, lava red, blue, and a purpley fuchsia hair before. Right now I feel pretty bland because it's brown. Blah. I am trying to grow it out so I can make it really big like those mobster wives in Goodfellas. You know, have it so sprayed up that it could count as a helmet and if someone throws something at it it'll just bounce off.
I like baking. Cooking in general but baking, oh God, every time I get a chance to bake, I have to put aside some for myself because it'll be gone before I get a taste if I don't.
I like dresses and heels. Dresses more because of how easy they are to wear, just throw them on and done! I'm a klutz but I would wear all the heels. All of them. I am obsessed with necklaces too. I have more than I could ever wear but I still buy more. I spent a good bit on this particular necklace. It's my favorite!
GAH I WROTE A TON!
24 y/o here.
RAM for his computer, anything from think geek (this Kelvin.23 All In One Tool is neat). There's a TON of cool stuff here too.
I think the key here is to give him something useful which he will remember you by every time he uses it. There are heaps of cool things on this website [link]
But honestly these are my gift suggestions:
Hope that helps!
This store has some pretty cool stuff. And it's got a slider to change the amount, too. I can always find something cool to give hard-to-buy-for people.
Or if you want to just pay me shipping, maybe I could make you one.
this was on imgur's fromt page a while ago
It seems to be more of a novelty item but it might work
you could use get a baby carrier like this
Are you just looking for distribution or are you also looking for marketing ideas?
How are you selling them now? Are you already doing any type of FBA (fulfillment by amazon) ?
Have you considered doing a kickstarter or some other crowdfunding campaign, not because you need money, but because of the 'free-ish' advertising it allows. A 'novel plasma driven lighter' sounds like the perfect product for that type of thing. 'Cool' + 'tech' + 'small' (cheap/easy to ship hopefully).
Have you tried contacting any of the 'oddity' marketplaces?
Short term, maximize the number of channels you can offer the product. (should be able to sell at 4 different places without going outside your comfort zone). Don't price them equally for each place - you can intentionally price some higher and people will either pay it, or look around for a cheaper place (which you also control) which should improve the SEO/page rank of your preferred places.
Beyond that, pounding pavement. You (or someone else) can do some research and determine who would be a good fit. Google some keywords that you feel fit your product, find other places selling similar things and contact them. Do some background research on those pages to determine their traffic and volume of sales, etc.
If you have the means to hire someone, I would consider posting to /r/forhire/ that you are looking for someone to help you do some business development / scale your sales.
Considering how many DIY qlocktwos are out there, I don't think it will be too bad to DIY.
Would be a PITA to build tho, but certainly not undoable.
This but with more screens.
I think it is really your personal preference. I have been toying the idea of putting together a setup that allows me to move my desk to and from a standing or sitting position. A lot of the time when I am home I am going back and forth between my desk and other activities so it would be nice to not have to hunch over every time I want to check something.
Not affiliated with them in any way, but I saw them posted on some other Reddit threads. I'd imagine they work off of affiliate links, as an fyi.
I have one of those, but the buttons stick, and I've launched ice cubes with some pretty impressive distances as a result. My point is, its still better than hard plastic, but very far from ideal.
I've heard this is really good, though.
For those interested it's a prinz-waffen. They make a bunch of combination guns or "veirling" as well as being Incredible engravers.
Oh sorry I didn't realize that. I really can't remember most of the sites that have gamed suatmm off the top of my head, but the most recent one was gemsinthejungle.com - the owner of the site was posting products as links to imgur, and in the imgur album they linked to his site, and his posts were often the #1 or #2 post on that subreddit. He deleted his account not too long ago though and appears to have stopped, but a new site pops up every 2 weeks or so.
It's funny though, that subreddit is supposedly against affiliate spam and they say you must link to the actual webstore, yet in their own sidebar they say you can link to uncrate.com, which is just a blog (like my website thisiswhyimbroke, which seems to be banned since too many people linked to it when my site first started).
I actually did a fair amount of research into pricing stained glass. There was another stained glass artist out there making "geeky" stained glass, I remember his post on the Iron Man one he was making and it sold for $4,500. My pieces are a bit smaller and do not have as many pieces, but stained glass work, especially custom-made, can get very expensive very fast.
both of these sites have stupid/amazing items you thought you would never need until you see them.
This video explains all the Kuratas's features. I think you should watch it before dissing it, it's really cool. It also has a BB-minigun and bottlerocket launcher that can be activated with a smile. It's road-legal and can go fairly fast, and the arms work too. I love it >_<
trust me: [link]
check the 25 to 50 and the 50 to 100 categories under gamer, geeky +tools, etc.
I suppose I could stretch out the million dollars if I forego the hovercraft and just get the flying car, instead of both.

> Or, more accurately, help me find the thing I want to buy?
You mean you have a product in mind but can't find it, ([/r/tipofmytongue](/r/tipofmytongue) can help with that), or you want awesome ideas on what to buy? If the last, no idea of a reddit like that, but there is This is why I'm Broke, fairly cool site, made by a redditor I think.
this microsoft link page
This is why im broke
This is not Amazon related, but you might have some luck reaching out to barkbox. I had a friend that worked with them quite some time ago and if a product is new and innovative, getting a meeting with a subscription box is far easier. You may even be able to start with smaller alternative companies. Congrats on going for it and I wish you luck!
edit: submit to sites like this: [link]
I run my own online business. I probably work more than 40 hours a week, but it never feels that way. There are difficult days, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Working from home is pretty sweet too, once you get used to it (isolation can be difficult).
The guy from ThisIsWhyImBroke has some great posts about how he did it and I just picked a different target market and pretty much followed his advice.
But like I said, I already had a very large following (women ages 25-55) and a huge FB page so it was easier for me than simply starting from scratch.
Too short as standalone, too tall mounted at ceiling height. They'd need to be a lot larger to accommodate an entire Lighthouse unit inside the "eye" of the turret. As for aesthetic improvements to your VR space I'd recommend [link] something along those lines. We've seen that reflective surfaces (even quite large reflective surfaces) don't impact the Lighthouse tracking.
While it would be pretty cool to give them a Portal aesthetic, if I were to imagine a Portal themed Lighthouse enclosure it would be a personality core rather than a turret. They're far more compact and their handles would make ideal mounting surfaces while allowing you to adjust the facing of the units.
I started "picking" up lockpicking last year, and I was kind of scared at how easy it actually is to pick around 60% of locks out there.
Yeah, a high-security lock is going to take some time, but I could pick the locks to get into my mom's house, my apartment, and other locks in similar places that I really wish were harder to get into, in about 2 minutes.
Even worse, a lot of the time I've found, since I started picking, that IRL you often can use just some random flat piece of shit to pick through a lock. I posted elsewhere recently that threadcutters are amazing improvised lockpicks, but if you have something you can jam against the pins and something you can turn the cylinder with, you have lockpicks.
Low-level lockpicking is so easy that I used to go to bars and breweries with a set of lockpicks and training locks and let my buddies fuck around with it while we all drank. (People loved doing this, by the way. They'd argue about how got to go next like kids, it was awesome)
Guys who had never touched lockpicks before in their lives were picking 5-pin locks after about 15 minutes of me teaching them how to do it, while drunk.
Eh, I like to believe these characters are truly stronger than they've been depicted, especially Anakin who is "oh so powerful" and yet all he ever does is sword fight, force push and choke. Yikes, so much for the chosen one.
Yeah Lucas created the universe, but so far the professional talent that has created content for the extended universe is far more adept at bringing these stories to life. So fanfic or not, they do it better than whatever disney has approved as 'canon'. So let's just leave it at canon mace is your standard jedi master and fanfic mace is a BMF.
Don't do it unless you're ready. Don't ever feel pressured to be sexualized. Your boyfriend will respect your choice. If any one ever pressures you do something you're not comfortable with (sexual or not), remember, you are in charge of your body and what you do with it. BUT. if you want to learn. There is the internets. Watch a video. Read some articles. Then let him teach you. He'll be glad to.
Your card sounds like a great idea! Keep it sentimental. You could bake him cookies, make him food. You could also go on [link] and find something cool. Order it off Amazon. If he likes to spend time more than he likes gifts, you could both go out for dinner, watch a movie. Spend time in a meaningful way!
Don't feel obligated to give a gift. Instead, find out what he likes and create a memory! In the end, he'll be sure to cherish whatever you put effort into. :)
You can buy these glorious awards here!
(This isn't my site and I'm not making any money, I just googled "adulting award ribbons" lol.)
These are very good points that I need to look into. I was designing my site's links based on the tried and true method that thisiswhyimbroke and shutupandtakemymoney use. Therefore, I am not sure about the 2 step procedure, although neither of these sites do this.
For the pricing, I also need to look into this, but I know the million dollar company Slickdeals does not use the API by just looking at their posted price and then clicking through to their link. I am not saying that this is the correct way, or according to the agreement, but that is what I have seen.
Hopefully this helps for you, but it also makes me need to look through all of the documents and maybe try to use the pricing API.
Thank you for your comments.
Holy fuck they DO have exist!
I need one in my life. There's even tutorials for making them. I'd need a square one though for my fancy icecream though.
I love you for this idea.
You could get a cross stitch template or whatever they are called.
For dad, I don't really know. One of them euler's discs? Venus flytrap to care about? I don't know.
Check this out though: [link]
Can give you some ideas.
The nicest most expensive 6-pack in the place - ask whoever is working
Some exotic meat - Like lion, ostrich, etc...
Or any of the goofy yet cool gifts on this site
These things are pricey.
This one is $5,500 but isn't as nice as the one in the video.
Here are the inner workings...
I just made my batch of jell-o shots last night. I used the plastic disposable shot cups. They worked perfectly! Found mine at any Waitrose/Spinney's. 9aed for a pack of 50.
You said you found it, where? Did you buy it or dig it up? Certainly looks to shaped by a mold or chiseled. Doesn't look natural. The coloration reminds me of Bismuth, but I've never seen one that was shaped like that. When you grow your own they look like this If anyone else has any other ideas, feel free to correct me.
Awesome TR max helmet, agree chrome isn't the best colour for the TR, white might be right?
Also any chance of a predator style helmet for vanu max with/without dreadlocks? - Predator helmet example 1, Predator helmet example 2, Predator helmet example 3
What the heck are those? Astronaut issue? Printed with moons & stars?
Those are two words I never would have expected to be joined into one concept.
Googled it: [link]
I see that another redditor posted a link to a kickstarter, but I feel obligated to point out that im pretty sure theres already a company making these.
Ive seen it on thisiswhyimbroke.com
Edit: Found it. Had it in my wish list
I made a vow to myself to get this awesome Totoro bed for my 8 month old daughter by her 1st birthday. It seems a little silly but it is exactly the sort of thing I would have pined for as a child but never was allowed to have. I think it would be a dream for her and her older sister and the source of a lot of fun memories. Now the only problem is figuring out a way to save up for it as a SAHM with very little disposable income.
Hey man, it's okay. What I do when I don't know how light behaves in a certain scenario is I google it. So if I was making the image you created I would google "glass bubble". If you look at this example you can begin to recreate something that looks reasonable realistic.
Then you can apply all the same effects through various techniques and tweek them until it looks right to your eye. Here's what I was able to come up with. Not perfect (definitely more color correction is needed) but more pleasing, as least to my eye.
I learned completely through messing around. Trying to duplicate an effect that is naturally occurring as closely as possible.
Is there a purpose for this gun? Or, is it just a giant display model like those Swiss Army Knives that have every tool on them?
Well, if you want me to not use bitcoin to buy my coffee you are just going to have to outspend me on fees, suckers, In the meantime Miners and Western Union are laughing all the way to the bank. (BTW, just renamed my wallet file to BadMotherFucker.dat)
Get a meat marinade injector. Inject booze into fruit. Bring in fruit. Eat fruit. Get drunk.
Pour booze into zip lock bag. Tape up seal of bag very well so no leakage, perhaps then put into another zip lock. Tape inside crotch.
Flip flop flask
Refill water bottle with vodka
I don't like Oreos (yes, I know - the horror!!!), but I just recently found out about the Oreo Dunking Spoon and I think that's how I'd eat them.
Found this from over in AskReddit, but there is a website called This is why I'm broke that has a search by price, and they have a bunch of neat little, but cool things. For PC gaming, you can always go with steam cards, or look for nice collections at HumbleBundle (and you can choose how much you want to pay, AND you can help charity!).
This ring is so damn cute.
Saw it a while back on This Is Why I'm Broke.
Link to the ring if anyone wants to buy one.
If it means a couple $10's, then I'd go for a site like thisiswhyimbroke. and set the price range to $0-$20 and see what gifts you think she'd like.
Mini Golf Pool, something like this. I then though of Bowling Pool, but lo and behold... These ideas were supposed to make me millions.
