If you’re like most people, it has been a long time since you remarked: “That is certainly a visually interesting toilet seat!” The sad fact is that most residential commodes feature boring, “ho-hum” seats. But that no longer has to be the case, thanks to Toilet Tattoos, which are removable vinyl decorations you can stick onto your toilet seat. They come in a variety of stock themes, including toilet-training cartoons, monograms and some very tasteful Christmas and Chanukah images. Or you can design your own Toilet Tattoo. Here at the Gift Guide we had one made from a photograph of the great entertainer Barry Manilow. Every time we look down at our toilet, there’s Barry, looking up at us. He has never looked better.

  • PERFECT POLLY

    You've probably seen the TV commercials for Perfect Polly, the battery-operated pretend parakeet manufactured in China from genuine plastic.

  • PRISM GLASSES

    These are special glasses that use an amazing scientific principle — possibly photosynthesis — to bend light beams at a 90-degree angle. This means that when you put these glasses on, instead of seeing what's in front of you, you're actually looking straight down.

  • CHICKEN BRASSIERE

    If you are not putting a brassiere on your hen (or self-mutilating parrot) (which would be a good name for a rock band) you could very well be contributing to its DEATH.
