EMERGENCY UNDERPANTS DISPENSER

 
 
 
 
BOB EIGHMIE / FOR THE HERALD

$6.95 plus shipping and handling from Archie McPhee and Company, 10915 47th Ave. W., Mukilteo, Wash. 98275, 425-349-3009, www.mcphee.com

Suggested by Terri Card of Corvallis, Ore.

This is a convenient dispenser box that contains five pairs of emergency unisex underpants. It makes a perfect holiday gift for people who occasionally lose control of their bodily functions, or cause others to do so. Picture this scenario: A business executive calls a longtime employee into his office and says: “Fred, I have to let you go. If you feel this news will cause you to soil yourself, feel free to take a pair of spare underpants from this box.” This is exactly the kind of heartwarming gesture that makes the holidays what they are.

This year, give the precious gift of peace of mind. Give emergency underpants.
