If you are like many people, you are constantly on the lookout for a gift idea that not only is practical, but also makes the wearer's head look like a human cheese ball on an hors d'oeuvres platter.
Well, look no farther than this amazing hair-cutting umbrella. It is designed to be worn during home haircuts, to prevent the hair from falling on the home-haircut victim. But we here at the Gift Guide think this item would look good anywhere, as well as providing many practical benefits. For example, have you ever been at the movies, and you grab a handful of popcorn, but when you put it in your mouth, some of the popcorn falls out? Sure you have. And usually, to retrieve that popcorn, you have to root around between your thighs. Well, if you were wearing this haircutting umbrella, that popcorn would be easily accessible, right around the base of your neck, mingling with flakes of your dandruff!
There are countless other uses for this fine product. We can't even count them, that's how many there are.
