Cha Cha’s 2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Volume 2


Back in October, I provided Cha Cha’s 2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Volume 1, for all those go-getters who like getting their holiday shopping done before the rush. Now that it’s the first day of December, it’s time to get serious.

Christmas is under a month away, and if you haven’t already started your holiday shopping, you’re in luck. Once again, I’ve provided some of the best possible gifts to give your special someone this sacred holiday. At this point, everything that keeps you from counting down the days until Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a pleasant distraction. This is Cha Cha’s 2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Volume 2:

Hatching Dinosaur Candle

DinoCandleOrdinarily, I wouldn’t recommend a candle for that special guy in your life, unless that guy listened to a lot of Enya and had an array of bath salts. The Hatching Dinosaur Candle is the proof you need that life… just finds a way. This waxed egg melts away to reveal a tiny baby raptor. Of course it’s a female raptor, because why would we breed males? No need to drop tens of thousands of dollars on a weekend escape to Isla Nublar to get a little prehistoric mood lighting. This affordable candle provides the light to attract romance, blood-thirsty dinosaurs, and possibly Chris Pratt, if that’s your thing.

Price: $45.29

Don’t get cocky, kid, you can’t do everything! Ryan Adams doesn’t need to be the only tool in your life, now you can have a multi-tool that can make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs. This hunk of junk is made from stainless steel, is pocket friendly, and provides you with 11 tools, including a screwdriver, bottle opener, wrenches, package opener, and more. While it may not come with a furry sidekick, it certainly has it where it counts. Don’t worry, she’ll hold together.

Price: $15.09

Personalized Tailgate Can Dispensing Cooler
Beer Cooler

This isn’t college anymore, it’s time to clean up your tailgate and get rid of all those tacky boxes of PBR, Busch Light, and Bud Light Lime. Now you can have your very own dispensing cooler to, not only, make your tailgate cleaner, but keep your swill cool. No need to live a life of shame with this cooler; simply open it up and your favorite watered-down beer comes right to you. This, of course, is the beer for everyone else. You will still need to stash your nice craft beer in another personalized tailgate can-dispensing cooler, preferably one that indicates who is allowed to touch that beer. Note that it only holds 12 cans, so you may need a half dozen of these. Lush.

Price: $27.95

Death Star Mood Light

Nothing says “I love you” like a planet-destroying super space station, and now it can light up your life like it just blew up Alderaan. Emitting a soothing glow to make all of your special moments just a little more special, this small light is USB powered and definitely NOT a moon. This particular mood light does not come with a design flaw that allows a proton torpedo to be fired into a hole no bigger than a womp rat, certainly destroying us all, but instead comes with a micro-cable to help light up your life.

Price: $30.19

Molten Lava Guitar

Nothing says “I’m going to melt your face” like a lava guitar that glows while you shred. This guitar is so cool, it may mask the fact that you have no idea how to play it, all the better. This one-of-a-kind instrument is not only practical, but is also the piece in your living room that screams “rock god”… and we all need one of those pieces. The guitar may be hot, but the price will probably cool you down.

Price: $2,785.08
