Here’s an idea for the “laziest” person on your shopping list…

I would probably rename this unique invention “The Epitomy of Laziness” – lol
It’s called the Self Stirring Lazy Mug and was created by Plain Lazy to hold your tea, coffee, hot chocolate or other mixed drink, and by pressing the special button on the handle, it starts stirring your drink.

IN YOUR FACE! A very unique and unusual Audubon gift idea…

Okay, I’ve seen everything now…..a hummingbird feeder for your FACE?!?

The Wearable Hummingbird Feeder which is also known as “eye 2 eye”, was specially formulated to help you get up close and personal with the way a hummingbird feeds. Based on a full-face face shield, you don’t have to worry about having your eyes pecked out while you see your pet hummingbird feast right in front of your face.

Using and enjoying the feeder is a two step process. The first is to acquaint the hummingbirds with the feeder. We set an old can of paint on a small shelf on the side of the barn and slipped the feeder onto the can. It wasn’t long before the hummingbirds found it, and after a little searching, found the feeding station. Then we let them get familiar with the feeder for a few days. Finally we set a chair next to the shelf, removed the feeder from the can, slipped it on and waited. One never forgets the first time a hummingbird suddenly arrives at the feeder right in front of your eyes. It is truly an awesome experience! (Definite adrenaline rush!) There you are, just sitting there, when WHOOSH a hummingbird jumps into your vision as if by magic! Definitely a treat.

Definitely a treat if you want to introduce your little ones to the wonderful world of nature and all that live in it, where the Wearable Hummingbird Feeder is currently going for $79.95 each.
