Gifts with an edge: Sleep with the fishes on a horse head pillow


As the holiday season approaches, we thought you might appreciate some gift suggestions with a twist, appropriate for those on your list who aren't satisfied with the same old, same old.

With friends like you, who needs enemies?

I couldn't decide if this gift would be more appropriate for your movie-loving friends or those who seem to sleep too soundly. Either way, the Horse Head Pillow from Kropserkel would be a fine present. This almost life-sized plush pillow is a reproduction of the horse's head that was left in the bed of a Hollywood producer as a message from the Corleone family in The Godfather. The details of the design even extend to the pink felt tongue trailing out of the horse's mouth. Can't you just imagine snuggling up to it on a cold winter's night?

One caution, though -- We suggest that you put your head out of sight before bringing home someone new to share you holiday bed. The sight might be a bit of a buzzkill.
