2006 Cryptoholiday Gifts

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 19th, 2006

Here are five last minute gift ideas or something for your birthday wish list for 2007:

1. How about Monster’s Choice Scottish Whiskey, here from the gift shops near Loch Ness, for those people secure enough in their cryptozoology to know that most of the Nessie eyewitnesses are not drinking?

2. Or maybe would you like to pick up one of the David Horvath Mothman Vinyl Toys if you are not scared of what might happen when you own one of these?

3. Or perhaps a NagleWorks creation of the male form of the Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot, (with optional digging stick supplied from your own yard)?

4. Or can you stop with the Thetis Lake Monster or

5. The Dover Demon, after you discover the hundreds of great cryptid figurines at Clawmark Toys?

  4. mystery_man responds:

    I live in Japan and was shopping in the Toys R’ Us here for presents and came across a radio controlled Loch Ness Monster. I didn’t know who I would give it to, but I bought it and can’t bring myself to give it away. Do they sell those over in the sates?

  5. arcampbe responds:

  8. vet72 responds:

    These are really cool! Now about those flying reindeer…

  9. Lee Pierce responds:

    How much for just a digging stick?

  10. Ceroill responds:

    Oh, a note as to Reindeer: I’m sure many of you realize that only female reindeer retain their antlers in the winter. At least…standard non-crypto reindeer…

  11. Loren Coleman responds:

    Antlers as gift ideas? Anyway, antlers are grown every year and drop off annually, in December for males and usually about a month later for females. Nevertheless, both genders lose them over the winter.


  12. Ceroill responds:

    Thanks for the correction, Loren.
