Buzz Gift Guide: The White Elephants of the Entertainment World

Welcome back to my Buzz Gift Guide series for all the entertainment lovers in your life. Yesterday was all about the box sets, and today I'm covering the wonderfully schmaltzy world of white elephant gifts. Just so we're all on the same page, the estimable UrbanDictionary defines this category of gifts as "presents never actually useful in real life."

Take this Edward Cullen doll inspired by Twilight. It's totally awesome (or, you know, "awesome") and I want it for my desk, which is probably the best you can hope for in a white elephant gift. And while we're on weird dolls, this Rodney Dangerfield doll will surely produce that satisfying look of bewilderment on the recipient's face at your next white elephant exchange. It cracks me up that the product description proudly boasts that it does 11 whole minutes of stand-up.

Also in the world of weird entertainment-related gifts is the Ugly Betty poncho.

Gifts that fall into more a quirky and cute category here include this adorable little Wall-E plush doll that makes sounds, and this design-your-own-speakers kit.

I think the little Wall-E toy is cute as a button. But you can keep the Edward doll. No thank you.

I love that Wall-E! I wonder if they have something like it at Wal*Mart or Target. The closest Disney Store was closed a few months ago.

there are so many random and weird things out there these days. i don't know if i'd be ok with an edward cullen doll like that - since he's creepy looking there. oh well. i'm sure there's a market for that stuff though!
