Mustachioed gifts
November 25, 2007 6:00 PM   Subscribe

Quirky gift filter: My friends and I have recently become obsessed with mustaches. I thought it would be great to give some mustache-themed gifts for the holidays, but I'm coming up short.

So far I've purchased mustache wax and a mustache mug.
I'd really love something like a mustache belt buckle or non-offensive t-shirt to give the ladies in our group. Any other ideas?

False Mustaches! I've given these as gifts to two different people, actually, and they never fail to impress.

Can't go wrong with mustache wax. Then of course there's the mustache cup. For the more cerebral mustach afficianadoes, perhaps the official book of the World Beard and Mustache championship?

For presentation I suggest arranging them nicely in an old velvet-lined eyeglass case.

There is a fetish-y mustache fad mushrooming on etsy.com right now. I simply entered "mustache" into their search and returned mustached letterpress, pins, necklaces, kitsch, art, and wearables--most a stocking-stuffer prices.

I'm not a fan of Etsy, but this seller has some cool mustachioed gifts, including a wooden mustache, and a nice charm.

This seller has a humorous pillow, but it looks like she might be sold out right now. You could contact her though.

Burlesque design (scroll down a bit) carries "Moustache Bandanas."
They are basically bandanas that have a print of a beard or moustache design on them.

your significant other might appreciate a gift certificate good for a ride on your mustache.

The Gettysburg/Gods and Generals movies are chock full of every manner of outrageous facial hair.

That, plus some DVDs of Cops from the late 80s, early 90s.

Lotsa stuff on Amazon, naturally. And of course this classic always impresses the ladies.

    I am going to emphatically, EMPHATICALLY third Moustache TV. It is one of the greatest games ever created, and one of the greatest gifts ever created, and the money goes directly to one of the nicest and funniest people in the world: actor and comic Andy Daly. Andy manufactured them himself and ships them personally.

    I tried resisting the urge to self-link, but in this interview on my show, Andy makes the case for Mustache TV with stunning alacrity. (Also the case against Mad TV, on which he was a cast member for a while, but it's the former that's really important.)

    Seriously, order a pile of mustache tvs and your friends will be SO very grateful.

    Also: when Andy shows up on the new Ferrel/McKay produced HBO comedy in the spring, you'll be the guy who knew him when.

    Also: to queserasera, you DO NOT NEED AN EXCUSE to buy a Mustache TV. Even if you did, I will provide you with one: schedule a mustache TV holiday party, with mustache TV and various holiday videos. Then order a kit for the party! Excuse provided!

    (Note: I'm not Andy Daly, and we're not even friends or anything, really, I just LOVE Mustache TV).

    (I learned of the above mentioned Mustache TV from your show, Jesse!)

    Shawnimals makes a stuffed toy mustache with a mustache. And what could be better than that?





    That's right, a ninja riding a mustache with a mustache.

    The first thing I thought of was this Old Tyme Villain shirt from Glarkware.

    Wow, thanks for all the suggestions.
    SoftRain, I thought of the Villain shirt too, but it's sold out in all he appropriate sizes.

    YoungAmerican, I really enjoy your show. There will be a Mustache TV in every one of the gifts I give this year.
