Arrested Development Drink Coaster Set

You may not get Hop-Ons, but you’ll get plenty of guests with hop-filled beverages who will threaten the surfaces of your furniture. This set features a stack of coasters piled onto the back of the Bluth Stair Car.

Arrested Development season 5 debuts in a few weeks! Always nice to get a surprise like that on short notice. I hope they recapture the magic of seasons 1-3, season 4 was just okay (though still better than many other comedies nowadays).

Vending Machine Lunch Box

Here’s a normal tin lunch box, with a print of two vending machines on the cover. I did include a “divider” on the front to help make it look like 2 separate machines, though that is not really necessary.

The could be really fancy with buttons and back-lighting, but I wanted something that was easy to wash and maintain. Went with Pepsi here, as they have a more diverse group of sodas, plus they own Doritos and Frito Lay, making this a more plausible licensed product.

I don’t know about you, but I would enjoy bringing one of these to work or school.

Reusable Coffee Cup Lids

In a perfect world everyone would be carrying a travel mug or thermos at all times, to help curb the waste generated by single-use coffee cups and their lids. Perhaps there is another way: a compact device that would reduce the need for plastic lids.

Cadbury Creme Eggs Bar

Cadbury Creme Egg Bar by Dave Delisle

In Canada we have this cruel annual tradition where Cadbury Creme Eggs are sold from Jan 1st until Easter, then poof, they’re gone. I would like a year-round variant that combines the eggs with the Caramilk bar. If this became a thing, all of the turmoil that plagues our great country would be completely eradicated. No pressure, Cadbury.

McDonald’s Halloween Safety Lights

McDonald's Safety Light Clip by Dave Delisle

Thought I’d offer a new spin on those classic McDonald’s Halloween pails: safety lights for Trick-or-Treaters. These tiny lights could be clipped to shoes, lanyards, wrist bands, or anywhere really.

Charles Mulligan’s Steak House Poster

You can grab a high-res poster here.

I haven’t done a new poster in a long time, so I thought I’d tackle the Steak House print seen in Ron Swanson’s office. I’m not the first to make this poster, but I wanted to create a larger and more show-accurate version.

Adventure Time Syrup, Independent Thought Alarm Button

Simpsons and Adventure Time by Dave's Geeky Ideas

A few weeks ago Adventure Time featured some “Canadian Maple Syrup” guards (they hail from the Breakfast Kingdom), and as a Canadian I thought they were hilarious. I mean, they were standing on guard fer crêpes sake.

Anyways I think it would be awesome if a maple syrup company produced a collectors bottle to look like this character. Granted, the dude is a throwaway gag, but I still want one.

 

I was in my neighborhood Staples recently (What? Even us lowly bloggers need practical office solutions), when I saw their famous Easy Button gag gift, which is a button that serves no function. So I thought if I wanted a geeky non-functioning button on my desk, it would be the Independent Thought Alarm from The Simpsons.

Sure it could be wired up to something or make a buzz sound when pressed, but I’d be happy with a plain trinket that I’d park on my desk. I feel it would be a hit with teachers and other people in positions of authority (bosses or supervisors).
