1Grenade Coffee Mug
Rudimentary incendiary grenades appeared in the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire, not long after the reign of Leo III (717-741).
Byzantine soldiers learned that Greek fire, an invention of the previous century, could not only be thrown by flamethrowers but also in stone and ceramic jars. Later, glass containers were employed.
In China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD), weapons known as "Sky-shaking thunder" were created when Chinese soldiers packed gunpowder into ceramic or metal containers. They also discovered the explosive potential of packing hollowed cannonball shells with gunpowder.
During the American Civil War, both sides used hand grenades equipped with a plunger that detonated the device upon impact. The Union relied on experimental Ketchum Grenades with a tail to ensure the nose would strike the target and start the fuse. The Confederacy used spherical hand grenades that weighed about six pounds. Some had a paper fuse.
Now, it's your turn! One shot, two shots, or however you have your coffee—start your day with a bang! Buy this mug here, and people will know you're not to be messed with.

3Arse / Face Soap
An excavation of ancient Babylon revealed that its people were making soap around 2800 BC. and were the first to master the art. They made soap from fats boiled with ashes. It was used for cleaning wool and cotton used in textile manufacturing and was also used medicinally for at least 5000 years.
The Ebers papyrus (Egypt, 1550 BC) revealed that the ancient Egyptians mixed animal and vegetable oils with alkaline salts to produce a soap-like substance.
According to Pliny the Elder, the Phoenicians used goat's tallow and wood ashes to create soap in 600 BC. Early Romans made soap in the first century AD from urine.
Today, soap is made in other ways. This scented soap tells you where to stick it—one side is marked "arse" while the other is marked "face" to prevent any cross contamination. Keep it clean peeps. If you have an obsessive-compulsive friend (or one that's habitually grubby), click here and give it to him!
4Happy Man Wine Bottle Stopper & Corkscrew Set
Romans enjoyed a richly erotic—and sometimes pornographic—culture. Pompeian frescoes depict all kinds of sexual imagery—in particular, large penises.
Unfortunately, in 79 AD, Vesuvius erupted and buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. This resulted in not only the loss of life but in the substantial destruction of valuable pieces of classical art.
All is not lost! You can have your own semi-erotic art with this Happy Man Bottle Stopper.
With a really huge...smile and pert butt cheeks, the red man is bound to raise a few laughs as well as eyebrows at the dinner table. This adult novelty gift will certainly add fun to any party and is a great gift for any occasion. Click here to get the Happy Man Wine Bottle Stopper & Corkscrew Set.
5Self-Inflating Whoopee Cushion
What could possibly be funnier than a whoopie cushion?
Some believe that the whoopee cushion originated in medieval courts where jesters turned pig bladders into flatulence simulators. It's the stuff of legend, but “it stands to reason,” says Jim Dawson, the author of “Who Cut the Cheese.” In reality, the first whoopee cushions that we know of emerged from Canada in the 1930s. It was there that JEM, a Toronto rubber company, introduced a contraption known alternatively as the “poo-poo cushion” and the “boop-boop a doop." By 1932, it settled on “whoopee.” A collector named Stan Timm owns an early model—it's green, with a wooden mouth and a drawing of a gun-toting boy wearing a devious smile and a kilt.
Like the pillows on our list, this toy has also evolved—the self-inflating whoopee cushion is finally available! You can buy one here!
6tabCoosh for iPad Utility Pillow
The first people to use pillows lived in Mesopotamia around 7,000 BC. At this time, only the wealthy used them. The more pillows one owned, the more affluent they were.
Pillows have also been associated with the mummies and tombs of ancient Egypt dating back to 2055 B.C. The Egyptians used wooden or stone pillows to provide support to a corpse's head, keep blood circulating, and keep demons away.
In China, pillows were made from a wide range of materials including bamboo, jade, wood, and bronze, but porcelain was the most popular. The porcelain pillow first appeared in the Sui Dynasty between 581 and 618 BC
The Romans and Greeks of ancient Europe mastered the creation of the softer pillow. These pillows were stuffed with reeds, feathers, and straw to make them softer and more comfortable.
For such a simple idea, the pillow continues to grow and evolve—new materials, shapes and uses arise constantly. Take, for example, the tabCoosh for iPad.
Designed to ease the strain of holding your tablet, the tabCoosh provides real, yet flexible support while reading, watching movies or browsing the web. The tabCoosh is perfect for a posting a tweet, browsing your cookbook app, and even a Skype session with family & friends. Check out more about the tabCoosh for iPad here.
Whether it's for Father's Day, graduation, or a random gift, give your techie guy something he won't expect.
7Color Changing Morph Mug
Pottery is the first synthetic material ever created by humans.
The oldest evidence of pottery manufacturing has been found at an archeological site known as Odai Yamamoto, in Japan, where fragments from a specific vessel have been dated to about 16,500-14,920 years ago.
Open fire techniques were used to produce the earliest pottery. In using this method, temperatures range from about 600°C to 900° C. Japanese Jomon pottery (dated back to 13,000 years ago) and Middle Nile Egyptian vessels (from about 10,000 years ago) are some examples of pottery produced using this technique.
Just like the many civilizations that came before you, you too can have a really novel cup! This heat-sensitive ceramic coffee cup features a fun battery power meter on the side which glows when your mug is over 36° C and fades as you consume it or as it cools, letting you know it's time for refill/recharge.

8Orbitkey USB 2.0 Key
Like all technology, the USB has evolved over time. Despite being a “Universal” Serial Bus, in its 18-or-so years on the market, it has spawned multiple versions with different connection speeds and many types of cables.
When USB 2.0 became more widespread in the early-to-mid 2000s, it began to replace even more things. USB flash drives had a hand in the death of the floppy disk (and proprietary relatives like the Zip drive) and the slow fade of optical media. Why use CDs and DVDs for data storage and operating system installation when smaller, faster, and more versatile USB drives can get the job done quickly? USB 2.0 also made it feasible to connect external peripherals, including Wi-Fi adapters, optical drives, and Ethernet ports.
In other words, the Orbitkey 2.0 USB 8GB is a handy way to upload and carry files in a hurry, and it has a cool design. A great tech gift for men. Do you want it right now? Click here.
9Dinosaur LED Night Light (Ceramic)
The Acámbaro figures are several thousand small ceramic figurines allegedly found by Waldemar Julsrud in July 1944, in the Mexican city of Acámbaro, Guanajuato. The figurines are said to resemble dinosaurs and are sometimes cited as anachronisms. Some young-Earth creationists have adduced the existence of the figurines as credible evidence for the coexistence of dinosaurs and humans. However, there is no known reliable evidence for the validity of the Acámbaro figures as actual ancient artifacts.
What we know for sure is that Gyrofish carries the coolest Dinosaur LED Night Light we've ever seen. Designed in Australia, the night light makes a bold statement in the contemporary home and is perfect for any man cave. Take a look here.
10Prescription Coffee Mug
The science and technique of preparing and dispensing drugs has been around for thousands of years. The world's first recorded prescriptions were etched on a clay tablet in Mesopotamia around 2100 BC, and the first drugstores were established in the ancient city of Baghdad in the eighth century AD.
Commonly seen on doctor's prescription pads and pharmacy signs, "?" is the symbol for a medical prescription. According to sources, ? originated in medieval manuscripts as an abbreviation of the Late Latin verb recipe, the imperative form of recipere, "to take" or "take thus." Among several alternative theories, however, is the belief that the ? symbol evolved from the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol associated with healing powers.
Do you want healing powers? Well, you are in luck—the Prescription Coffee Mug can give them to you! It's just what the doctor ordered. Drink one mug, and repeat until awake and alert! Buy it here.
Everybody believes that the Lumière brothers invented the first successful movie projector. But few people know that the first movie projector was the Zoopraxiscope, invented by British photographer Eadweard Muybridge in 1879.
The zoopraxiscope projected images from rotating glass disks in rapid succession to give the impression of motion. The stop motion images were initially painted onto the glass as silhouettes. A second series of discs, made in 1892–94 used outline drawings printed those on to the discs photographically. They were then colored by hand.
A more sophisticated movie projector was invented by Frenchman Louis Le Prince while working in Leeds. In 1888, Le Prince took out a patent for a 16-lens device that combined a motion picture camera with a projector. In 1888, he used an updated version of his camera to film the first ever motion picture, "The Roundhay Garden Scene." The picture was privately exhibited in Hunslet.
The Smartphone Projector is the sweet spot where modern technology meets vintage aesthetics. The Luckies design team wanted to utilize the infinite possibility and popularity of modern technology while making a gift that provides a little bit of escapism from the everyday grind. Made from cardboard, the Smartphone Projector is light, compact and portable.

12Tablet Stand & Stylus
In the ancient Near East, clay tablets were used as a writing medium—especially for writing in cuneiform—throughout the Bronze Age and well into the Iron Age.
Cuneiform characters were imprinted on a wet clay tablet with a stylus made of reeds. Once written upon, tablets were dried in the sun and remained fragile. Later, these unfired clay tablets could be soaked in water and recycled into new clean tablets. Other tablets, once written upon, were fired in kilns (or inadvertently, when buildings were burnt down by accident or during a conflict) making them hard and durable.
Today, you no longer need to go to a museum to get your own Tablet Stand & Stylus. You only need to click here!
This sturdy tablet stand provides two different viewing angles, charging cord ports, and a stylus holder at both ends. For better storage, the stylus clips onto the underside of the stand. There's no doubt that this gift will drive your tech friends out of their minds!
13KB Sandpictures Australia
Sand art (the formation of creations, pictures and imagery using sand) originated in the city of Petra in Jordan, during the early 20th century.

14Vinturi Red Wine Aerator Deluxe Tower Set with Stand
As we all know, wine that has been left to breathe (decanted) tastes better. As wine breathes, it opens up and releases its intended aromas and flavors.
The ancient Romans pioneered the use of glass as a material. After the fall of the Roman Empire, glass production became scarce causing the majority of decanters to be made of bronze, silver, gold, or earthenware. The Venetians reintroduced glass decanters during the Renaissance and pioneered the style of a long slender neck that opens to a wide body, increasing the exposed surface area of the wine, allowing it to react with air. In the 1730s, British glass makers introduced the stopper to limit the wine's exposure to air. Since then, there has been little change in the basic aspects of the decanter.
The whole decanting process takes a half an hour to one hour. But, can we shorten it further? Yes. The Vinturi is specially designed to speed up this process. Simply hold it over a glass and pour the wine through. It's that fast. It's that easy.
So, do you have an old friend who appreciates wine more than you? Find this unique gift for him here!
15Mr. Tea Infuser
Roman baths were part of day-to-day life in Ancient Rome. Here, people could relax, get clean, and keep up with the latest news. The baths were also a very cheap and easy way to pass slow time. After paying his entrance fee, a visitor would strip naked and hand his clothes to an attendant. He could then exercise and work up a sweat before moving into the tepidarium (warm bathroom) which would prepare him for the caldarium that was more or less like a modern sauna. The idea, as with a sauna, was to sweat out toxins. Afterward, a slave would rub olive oil into the visitor's skin and then scrap it off with a strigil.
Today, you can enjoy a Roman bath in your cup of tea! Just load Mr. Tea's little silicone pants with tea, perch him in your cup of hot water, relax for a minute as he does the work, and savor your perfect orange pekoe.
