Laurie Notaro's eBay-Inspired Holiday Gift Guide for Your "Unusual" Friends and Family

Laurie Notaro is an author, crafter, and expert at finding a good cocktail. She grew up in Phoenix, but is currently based in Eugene, Oregon. Each week, she'll be joining us to share a crafting adventure, draw a flowchart, or remember a few of her favorite things about Phoenix. Today, she shares a few special finds on eBay that could easily be given to that special someone in your close social circle this holiday season.

Everyone's holiday list has someone on it that is impossible to buy for, but imagine if you had a tweaker, Neo-Nazi or sex offender for a close relative! Try looking for those categories on Amazon's sidebar! No dice, mi amigo, no dice.

Therefore, I present to you a handy gift guide for those hard-to buy for everyone on your list who's living off the grid or on the fringe. But should something strike your fancy, move on it quickly, because the only thing more common on eBay is people in their basements selling their dead grandmas stuff is the pool of regrets the minute after you lose an auction to NikNakNut (12337).
