Okay, stay with us here — this makes a hysterical holiday gift, especially for the loved one with a goofy sense of humor. This before-you-go toilet spray is blended with a combination of “safe to breathe and safe to flush” essential oils that trap odors underneath the water’s surface, according to the brand. Unlike most aerosol air fresheners, you spritz Poo-Pourri a few times directly into the toilet bowl before you get busy. Then you flush, and a fresh eucalyptus and spearmint scent combo hits the air. This gift is sure to cause a stink this holiday season ... but for all the right reasons!

For the cottagecore queen in your life, we suggest this nightlight cleverly disguised to look like a small mushroom garden. It has three shrooms that light up in blue, yellow and white. LED bulbs means they use very little power, and the intensity of their light will vary throughout the day. They're also shatter-resistant. "I love this little mushroom night light! I have had it for a while now and it’s so adorable and colorful! Insanely great quality," said one reviewer.

If Taco Tuesday is a sacred holiday to your friend or family member, make their cozy, culinary-inspired dreams come true with this soft flannel blanket that’s designed to look exactly like a jumbo tortilla. This cozy cover is round, just like a tortilla, but it's 60 inches in diameter (that would make a very hearty meal!). The double-sided burrito blanket is not only adorable and super warm, but it’s machine-washable and comes with its own takeout container, a.k.a. gift bag.

Does your loved one have gorgeous locks that are certain to always clog their bathtub drain? This brilliant hair catcher is an Amazon top-seller, and it’s about to change their life (and save them money on a plumber). The TubShroom is one of those products that people don't think of finding themselves, but its brilliant design is sure to completely reinvent their bathroom routine. Due to its cylindrical “mushroom” shape, you don’t actually see any of the hair, soap or residue buildup until you’re ready to clean it. The product is made of silicone, so it’s flexible and easily fits in a variety of tub drains. Water passes through, but hair gets caught, wrapping around the tube. Now and then, just pull it out, clean it (the hair comes off easily) and put it back in place. This 2-pack is perfect for multiple bathrooms, and the chrome design will match any similar drain perfectly.

Is that caked-on tomato sauce that's all over your loved one's microwave sticking around so long, it's going to have to start paying rent soon?
