Weekend Challenge: The Gift Of .... This Thing

For this Weekend's Challenge, I wanted to go in a festive direction, and then I thought maybe a funny direction, and then I settled on pictures of some of the strangest items people could give as gifts (at any time of year!) or could just buy for themselves because, hey, why not?

So I have 30 different photos of funny/weird/random items, and if you give me a number or two, I will give you a photo or two. You then will have until 11:59pm Thursday in all timezones of the world to write at least 200 words or make some sort of graphic, and I will reward you with an icon or ficlet or progress on a WIP.

(I am about to head out for a bit, so photos will come tonight when I'm home or, worst case, tomorrow morning, but they will come so don't worry!)
