Affordable Family Gift IdeasBears vs. Babies game

Oh no! Armies of horrible, despicable babies are attacking! They’re attacking by land, by sea, and by air! Who will save us from the infantile menace? Some magnificent, glorious bears of course, and an assortment of other monster friends that you will stitch together, beefing them up with nunchuck-wielding T-Rexs, friggin’ sweet power tools, intravenous caffeine drips, and saucy sombreros – so that they may gobble up those villainous babies, and save the day!

This, friends, is a card game. A card game in which you build monstrous bears who eat horrible babies. It’s made by the same intelligent and attractive people who brought you Exploding Kittens. Battle the oncoming hordes of awful babies, or have fun sending other players into battle woefully unprepared. Because even though you are battling baby armies, the real fight is between you and your fellow players. At the end of the day, it’s all about who can gobble up the greatest number of delicious babies!

Affordable Family Gift IdeasGhostbuster: The Board Game

Ghostbusters: The Board Game is a cooperative, dice-rolling, grid movement game that puts you on call to serve New York’s supernatural elimination needs. (Which makes us giggle, cause it sounds like ghost pee.) The board is composed of modular, double-sided tiles, so you’ll have a customizable, replayable experience.

Your job is to close the gates to the spirit world, before all the ghosts have emptied onto the streets. Choose to be any of the four original Ghostbusters: Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz, then bring your unique talents to several different scenarios. Vary the difficulty, gain new abilities, enjoy the 40+ figurines, and get slimed.

Now, when I turn over this card, concentrate. And if someone asks you if you are a god, you SAY YES!

It comes with a high-quality, anti-microbial nylon carrying case to keep the thermometer safe when not in use.

A little something else for the family

“Blankeez” Prank Gift Box

Affordable Family Gift IdeasThey’re the boxes for screamingly funny, hilariously awful, but scarily plausible products that don’t really exist. The photography, typography and layout of these boxes are perfect. I mean, they look exactly like the cheesiest products you’d buy from TV infomercials.

Anyway, the point is that you put people’s real presents inside the empty Prank Pack boxes. Then, when they unwrap their gifts, you get that delicious moment of watching their faces as they struggle to be tactful. They think you’ve just given them the all-time turkey of presents.

Once they figure out that it’s just a satirical prank, there’s even more laughter — and then gratitude for the much more thoughtful present you’ve stashed inside.
