- ‘Left Toe Nail’ artwork sign & dated by artist — $7,444
I must admit that I have, for the most part, gravitated towards Amazon, Groupon and Etsy when it comes to my commercial online-shopping needs. But I still like to hit up eBay every now and then, because where else can I find a signed left toenail claiming to be a piece of art? The “artist,” Kenny Irwin, has a sculpture entitled “Santa’s Casino Stealth Bull” that earned him a certificate of recognition from US Rep. Raul Ruiz. He has work that has been featured in the Baltimore Modern Art Museum and New York Times. The toenail is infused with layers of paint flecks that dripped on the artist toes during the creation of other works. And for a few thousand it could make an amaze-balls gift for you or that special someone in your life.

- Zombie Apocalypse 5000w solar hybrid generator system — $3,700
Honestly, they are just solar panels. The brand is not called Zombie Apocalypse and we can safely say the words are used to simply sell an item. It’s a cool heading to come across until you realize that there is no additional discussion of zombies beyond the title. It’s like Sour Patch Kids candy, sweet and sour at the same time.
