New and awesome grab bags/surprise boxes/random chaos: help me find things like the Archie McPhee Surprise Box for my family to enjoy.
In previous years, my family has, for the holidays, gotten each other a giant Archie McPhee surprise box. It's like a present everyone is surprised by that we can all share and the 9 Devil Duck bubble baths get regifted after we've picked the Shakespeare action figures out.
However, the randomness has left the building. Now I can tell you how much chum-flavored bubble gum and how many Parasite Pal combs we'll end up with. Also, it's truly useless junk.
Here's what I'm looking for:
- The element of surprise
- Enjoyable for everyone in a (quirky, dark) family with a teen. Doesn't have to be PG-rated, but shouldn't be a grab bag of men's XL t-shirts either
- Less than $150
- Consumable, regiftable or useable - not overly disposable/just making crap to throw away
Yes, I have googled "grab bag" and "weird grab bag" and things like that, but the signal to noise makes it difficult to find anything awesome. (Except for a "sword grab bag
" - who knew that was a thing?)
