Gifts for Fun!
There are times when not everyone on your holiday shopping list is an individual. Sometimes you’re on the lookout for a group gift: something for your whole family, your favorite neighbors or close family friends. And what sort of gift is good for a group? Something fun! The same is true for those people for whom you must get a gift, but you don’t know them well.
Whole Earth Provision Co. has been specializing in fun for almost 50 years. We love games, silliness and humor. A visit to one of our stores reveals just how deep and wide our sense of the ridiculous is. Oven mitts with attitude, Narwhal tea infusers, a Star Trek ice tray (let the Enterprise cool your drink), mugs that wake up when the coffee is poured, a car full of cats sunshade for your car, books to tickle your funny bone, and games that can make a group howl with laughter.
When you’re looking for a gift for a group, consider a game or other activity where everyone can join in. For an individual, fun can be either an activity or something to make them laugh. With those thoughts in mind, here are a few suggestions for fun gifts from Whole Earth.
Celestron National Park Foundation TravelScope 60
The Celestron TravelScope 60 is not a game, but it will add a new dimension to your family camping trips and travels. Sharing a closer look at birds, wildlife and the view can make treasured memories. This spotting scope offers high quality performance at an exceptional value. It’s compact and portable and can also be used for casual astronomical observations. The telescope and the tripod fit inside a custom backpack for easy transportation and storage.
Opinel Nomad Cooking Kit
When you’re packing up to go camping, do you raid your kitchen drawers for tools to take with you? They can be awkward to carry and even a bit dangerous. The Opinel Nomad Cooking Kit is always ready to go. It packs up neat in its own carrying case and includes a folding corkscrew knife that cuts and slices and opens bottles, a folding serrated blade, a pocket peeler, a beechwood cutting board and a microfiber cleaning cloth. It’s the perfect gift for your camping family or buddies.
Nite Ize Glowstreak LED Ball
Do you have a four footed canine friend or dog parents on your holiday shopping list? They will love this nighttime fetch ball made of robust rubber with a motion activated LED light within. Dogs like to play after dark, just like humans do. The shockproof, removable polycarbonate core houses the LED/battery module and screws securely into place, creating a waterproof seal, so it can also be used in the water. Note: this is not a chew toy! It is for supervised use only.
Zootility Texas Wallet Card Bottle Opener
Here’s handy little gift for a Texan who loves craft beers, Topo Chico or anyone who simply likes to be prepared. The Texas Wallet Card Bottle Opener is made of stainless steel and is the size of a credit card. It fits nicely in a wallet, ready to be retrieved should it be needed. The Texas cutout is the bottle opener. It’s been scaled to the perfect size for popping off a bottle cap. Let the shape of the great state of Texas pop the top so they can sit back and sip their cap-less cooler of choice without having to search for a bottle opener.
Twister arrived on the scene in 1966 and was an immediate hit. The ever more complex and precarious entanglement of player’s limbs makes it a very entertaining game. It’s true a test of strength and flexibility to be able make the moves and not collapse in a giggling heap. It’s a game for everyone from toddlers to adults. Does your recipient have a family game night tradition or is there a teen on your list who would happily add a new game to their collection? If so, Twister Classic may be the gift you are looking for.
