I realize this is too late for those who want ideas for Christmas. I started this post with the intention of getting it out around Black Friday, but never got around to it. I’m sort of an amazon shill (and did most of my shopping there since fighting the crowds at stores is like going to the dentist to me) and find a lot of random stuff I think would be cool gifts or stuff to have. If one more consumer blog post is going to make your head explode, I understand, so check back in tomorrow.

Totally cool Lego figure for those that are fans of the Stars Wars genre. May not be able to give this one to the kids.

For those looking for a cheap start to bringing spice to the bedroom, only $15. I’m sure it’s incredibly cheap, but when your mind is stimulated it doesn’t matter if light get’s under the blindfold or if the rope and restraints are wimpy: Red Beginner Sex Toy Bondage Set

One thing many people don’t think about is bodily needs of going to the bathroom. You won’t be able to use your in-home toilet as you hunker down, so you better be ready. The following is a $20 Self-Contained Toilet that has high reviews and would do pretty well in a pinch. One of the reviewers said this (and I am not making this up): “My wife weighs about 325 pounds and it holds up great.” so even big-uns can take a dump and not worry about it breaking WTSHTF.
…and finally, don’t forget your Horse Head Mask, perfect for all occasions:
