Faux Fur Ice Scraper

10 Worst Gifts - Mink Ice ScraperScraping the ice off your windshield is a pretty thankless task. Doing it while looking like you’re giving a chinchilla a colonoscopy is worse. Neiman Marcus still lists this item in its online catalog, though thankfully it looks like they’re out of stock for this winter. Take it easy, Leona Helmsly: If you’ve got sixty bucks to blow on an ice scraper, you can get yourself a proper pair of gloves and a red Hoppy ice scraper instead.

10 Worst Gifts - Shifter toilet handleWe found a legit review on this product.

Looks very cheap and only have had it installed for about two weeks and the handle broke last night. Needs to be made out of something a little heavier since it is something that does get used and looks cheap. Loved the idea but needs to be made a lot stronger!!!

What in the name of all that is holy are you doing in there that you can break the handle off your toilet?
