Christmas Gifts Craigslist

Odd Xmas gifts and last minute shopping on Craigslist

Although Dayna's been hard at work throughout the month of December compiling a pretty great locally sourced holiday gift guide, I'm one of those delinquents who's yet to do any gift-buying. Although I'm quite sure that I'll manage to get everything together in the next few days, one item has presented a bit of difficulty. I've been hunting for a map of Toronto similar to the one found at the White Squirrel Coffee Shop but a little bit smaller in size. Naturally one of the places that I've searched for such a thing is Craigslist.

So far I've had little luck finding a historical map that fits my requirements, but in the process of looking for one I've found all manner of wacky, humorous and just plain awful items. Last night, I rounded up a few of these listings as my humble offering to blogTO's gift guide, though, to be fair, most of these items should go under the heading of "what not to buy."

But does it do anything?

Robot Sculpture


This is kind of neat, but also depressing

Trillion dollar bill


Is this really for kids?

For the cat lover

Catopoly


The inevitable hipster rant
