Still stumped on what to get the loved one with a major quirky side? Consider the Internet your friend! Online, you'll find a plethora of gift ideas ranging from funny, goofy to downright weird.

To help with your search, we've compiled a list of some of the kookiest stocking stuffers out there.

1. Unicorn meat


A great idea for a quirky venture capitalist cousin or friend dreaming of a billion-dollar tech startup — dubbed "unicorns" in the finance industry — this fake canned meat by ThinkGeek adds some fantastical, albeit morbid sparkle to the holiday.

Do keep in mind that the "meat," which sells on ThinkGeek for $9.99, is for show only. What's actually inside the can is "a dismembered stuffed unicorn."

And for a spicier option, check out the canned dragon meat.

2. Catty underwear

Considering the absurd popularity of cats on the Internet, it was only a matter of time before savvy e-commerce vendors got a hold of this brilliant, bizarre concept: underwear with images of cats silkscreened onto them. Consider it a fun stocking stuffer for your girlfriend, wife or the crazy cat lady in your life! It'll only set you back $11.99, which isn't bad for lingerie.

If kittens aren't up your gal's alley and you really want to stock up on the stocking stuffer panties, definitely consider these Golden Girls granny panties!
