Does your family give gag gifts? I’m not talking a power cord in a box silliness, but things that they might actually use that allude to an inside joke, a silly obsession or funny quirk? My Dad has a love/hate relationship with squirrels, so he’s the muse behind my gifts for squirrel lovers list. I’ve compiled ten funny (and yet useful) gifts for those that either adore or detest these furry tree mice. Since my Dad loves me enough to read along when I post, I’ll leave him wondering which one of these goofy gifts he’ll open on Christmas morning!
The Secret Life of Squirrel Picture Book
This cute little pictorial is a fun way to share your love of squirrels with your kids, or even your house guests. Leave The Secret Life of Squirrels out and see what like minds you can attract! Full disclosure… I gave something like this to my Dad last Xmas!
The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game
Gather all your little kids to play this nut-filled colors game. Work on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they spin the dial and be the first to gather all their acorns! Red and Scarlett love this game, courtesy of Nonna, and the Sneak Snacky Squirrel grabber makes for a fun everyday toy!
King Squirrel Tea Towel
Let this Squirrel tea towel adorn your kitchen counter or guest room sink for a touch of sophisticated whimsy. I know I love anthropomorphic animals, so I hope my guests do, too!
Everyone Needs A Nut Bowl
This Squirrel Nut Bowl is unassuming in its monochromatic silhouette, but what’s most important is everyone needs a nut bowl. This statement was once made by my Dad when Christmas shopping for a family member but he was so dead-pan serious when he said it, that EVERYONE IN THE FAMILY NEEDED A NUT BOWL that instant due to the instant inside joke. The resulting gift extravaganza was such a hoot that when I simply see a nut bowl – we have to buy and gift it!
Secret Squirrel Coffee Mug
Give your squirrel lover a real surprise when you serve hot tea, coffee or cocoa in this secret squirrel mug. A nutty morning mug peers out to really wake the drinker up!
Snacky Squirrel Cheese Board
Who cut the cheese? You can blame it on the tree rats with this cute little cheese board. The squirrel might be hiding under your charcuterie… but he’s still present for fans to see!
I Brake for Squirrels Handstamped Keychain
Lend your key to a neighbor and boldly share your love for tree dwellers. Alternatively, give this keychain to squirrel haters for a little mischief between friends…
Squirrel Lover Spirit Animal
What shape is your Patronus?? Give the gift of soul and spunk with this squirrel spirit animal t-shirt to help defend against the dark arts and celebrate your favorite fuzzy tailed creatures!
Squirrel Chair Feeder
I adore these feeders. Birds get all the love, and these tree dwellers are left with scraps! Allow them to feast in style on dried corn cobs with this handmade squirrel feeder. Mount it on a nearby tree for daily entertainment, or to drive your squirrel hating spouse up the oak tree along with them.
The Nut Job 2 on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital
Give the squirrel gift that you can watch over and over and over again! If you missed the first installment, be sure to catch up with Surly and watch The Nut Job (the first movie) to fall in love with these nuts! Surly and his friends are back in this action-packed animated adventure, The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, coming to Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital on October 31, 2017. Returning to Liberty Park after they are forced to leave their easy life at the nut store, getting back to nature is the last thing Surly wants to do, but when a greedy mayor decides to destroy the park to build an amusement park, Surly and his ragtag critter friends must band together to save the place they call home. The Bly-Ray, DVD and Digital Copy Bonus Features include deleted scenes, animation progression reels, concept art and feature commentary with Director/Co-Writer Cal Brunker and Producer/Co-Writer Bob Barlen.
