Our editors have independently selected the items featured in this article because we think they’re worth knowing about. Shop TODAY has affiliate relationships so we may get a small share of the revenue if you buy something through our links.
Some people are hard to shop for. Some people have very specific tastes, while others simply prefer their gifts on the, um, humorous side. This novelty gift guide is for all those people.
The internet is a vast place, with many, many weird and wonderful gift ideas. So, while this guide is a great place to start, we suggest browsing through our sortable gift guides or our helpful gift finding tool if you're looking for something maybe a little less eccentric.
Happy gifting, everyone!
