Weird gift ideas from the 2017 Cult of Weird holiday gift guide

It’s that special time of year when we hope to find skulls, vintage occult artifacts, disturbing books, and mummified human remains under the tree…but end up with matching monogram socks and stationary, instead. So this Christmas, whether you’re shopping for a weirdo, or you are the weirdo, the Cult of Weird holiday gift guide is here to ease your suffering.

At least a little. We can’t do much about the music and merriment.
