What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 282: Gag Gifts


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

The universe of gag gifts on Etsy is broad and somewhat varied. There are tens of thousands of poop-related items, age gags, and genital jokes, and the retirement and bachelorette gag gifts are thick on the ground. But it wasn’t all bad. I came across some wildly creative and entirely unexpected items, as well. But it was mostly bad.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

Behold the “Annoying PCB, A Device That Won’t Stop Beeping!” I can’t hear it, but I want to smash it anyway.

This is hot dog soap. I don’t think I’d feel very clean after using it.
If you actually pay $1.50 plus $2.95 shipping for a rubber band, I believe the joke’s on you.
This is awesome! By 123sge
$15. There is a sucker born every minute. (Seller also offers this.)
Very funny (and the little pots are adorable). By AngelaGrahamPottery
I definitely get why this is a GAG gift. Yuck.
This penis plush is a great way to let the ladies know you’re down to clown.

  1. These are so funny. Had to wake hubby up so he could wake up to something funny rather than dreary rainy day.

  4. There are days like this. When I need to smile or laugh I head straight here. Today was one of those days and Donna delivered again. Living where I live we told we need to store water. I bet those cans of instant water are what we need. – Hal

  5. I was already thinking there were far too many penis related items in this week’s edition and that those dinoschlongs were going to be appearing in my nightmares at some point and then we got to the PENIS CLOWNS! I swear I actually juddered as I scrolled and hit that image.

    I do love that cross-stitch though. That’s brilliant.
