What’s on the bahhhx

Amazon boxes have nifty AR pumpkin activities on them this month, as part of their #morethanabox campaign.

This offered hours of fun for all ages, not to mention some levity that didn’t require a lot of movement for a mom in a cast. Check out some of our virtual tomfoolery below; ignore messy room in background. We did this instead of cleaning it.

V-Day 2020: Cultural References and All the Fixins

Huzzah and Hello, weirdos! Today marks the fifth annual Weird Valentine Gift post here at WriterJax, and this year is a good one. It’s almost as though society in general has, somehow, become more accepting of the fringe.

I kid. Still, as we head toward VD 2020, I give you five contenders for holiday gift-giving. Go forth and browse to your heart’s content!

Don’t Torture Yourself, Gomez.

Send your favorite horror-file, or least-favorite-person in general, a bouquet of Dirty Rotten Flowers this year, like The Morticia arrangement below. Bonus: the testimonial page on this website is gold, Jerry. Gold.

You Had Me at Au Gratin

For the pun-tacular person in your life who’s all ears, I give you the Potato Parcel. This item was actually featured on Shark Tank and has been sending spuds around the world ever since, including those adorned with photos of the recipient.

Couple Goals

No one knows ’til death do we part like Jack and Sally. Let’s celebrate that love with gaudy-ass jewelry.

Put Some Pink in your Drink

This is too pretty not to share: pink chai tea from Lee.

The Rest is Gravy

No Valentines Day is complete without something unctuous, and when it comes to unctuous, I always vote gravy.

Savory, Sequined, and Sequential: the Weird Valentines Gift List of 2019

It’s time again to round up a few doses of strange, and list some of the weird Valentines Day gifts I’ve spotted in and around the interWebs.

I’ve ended up with three food-items this year on a list of four, but also saw a disturbingly high quantity of Nicolas Cage.

So, if Nic Cage be the food of your love, read on…

Your Love is My Drug

For the health-conscious (or relatively unhealthy) partner in your life, might I suggest the Jelly Belly pill case, which can be reused later for more candy, vitamins, or life-saving drugs. Spotted at: OffTheWagonShop.com.

Heinz Makes a Ballsy Move

A product after my foodie heart, Heinz entered the V-Day marketing game this year with limited-edition jars of ketchup caviar. Very limited edition…there were only a handful of samples up for grabs. Something about this suggests that if the reviews are positive, though, we might be seeing the little balls of condiment joy bounce up again. Spotted at: Nexter.org

Face on, Face off

What might be most notable about this item is how many different versions there actually are when shopping for ‘Nic Cage Pillows.’ Also, imagine just casually leaving this on the couch for the babysitter. Spotted at: Nexter.org

Dill the End of Time

Thanks in large part to Boston — home of Grillo’s Pickles — pickle bouquets are now a thing. Grillo’s will make and deliver one to those who live in Greater Boston, but will also show those who don’t how to make one via their website. Sweet of them, really, since pickles are their bread and butter. Spotted at: Rare
