Time for another fun contest. We've got a $50 eBay gift card to give away along with 10 more Black Friday t-shirts. To be entered to win, just reply to this thread with a link to something on eBay that you think would make a great gift idea and post a sentence or two about what it is and what kind of person you think it would appeal to.

The contest will run through Sunday night at 8pm ET. At that point I'll randomly pick someone to win the gift card and 10 more people to win Black Friday t-shirts. As always, if you've already won a shirt you can't win another, but you can try for the gift card.

Also, you can post once per day during the contest (so up to 5 total entries), but please do not post more than once per day.

Good luck!

This is the only gift my DH wants for Christmas.
I'm hoping somebody had a good deal on Black Friday.

For the kiddos 12-36 months that love Thomas the Train. We are wanting to get my son one since he is too short for his John Deere Tractor right now (he's my shorty mcshort shorts lol) but I believe it would be a great toy for any toddler.

This seems like a pretty cool gift for a teen's bedroom. It's a puzzle lamp that you can hang up from the ceiling. There was a place in the mall selling these exact things for $45-100! You could help them make their own and get the exact colors that they wanted.

Inversion Table because my DH says he just needs one, feels like it would help with his back pain.

Johnny Lightning Topper 1971 Indy 500 Race Set In Box With Orig Cars
 
This is a variation of a toy I had in 1969...

 johnny-lightning-1970-JCPenneys.jpg
 
TOPPER_TOYS_JOHNNY_LIGHTNING_ROCKET_500_
 

 
This race track had a hill (right side of picture) with slide controls.  When your car reached the bottom of the hill, you slid the slide control from left to right.  A hook would grab the bottom of the car and pull it up the hill.  If you moved the slide too fast, the car would lose control and fly off the track.  If you moved it too slow, the car would not finish the next lap.  This track was a lot more fun that watching hot wheels or squeezing the controller of a slot car set.  In the early 70s, Topper went under due to fraud.  About the same time, my younger sister toddled through mine breaking a few of the tracks which could not be replaced.
 
In 1994, Playing Mantis bought the rights to some topper toys including Johnny Lightning and a new racing set was introduced.  I bought two -- one to play with and one for spare parts.  They are still a lot of fun to play with (I still haven't invited my sister to play).  My kids and our cats really enjoyed this track.  If you know someone who once owned one or would like to make some kid's Christmas very exciting, get one of these tracks.
 
The cars are really unusual and fun to collect.  I have a few (a lot really) we play with and even more still in original packaging.  When the Johnny Lightning brand was discontinued in 2013, the tracks and cars got a lot more expensive (my tracks were $10 new) and more difficult to find.

This would be a great gift for a train enthusiast, Polar Express fan, or any little kid that might get into these.  There's various sets and/or engines out there on ebay so pick the one that works for your set and price range.

Something for the wall perhaps a little unusual to think of but how about a painting.

VHS to DVD Converter

I hope the link works since I'm on my mobile but this is something I've been eyeing for awhile. My mom has TONS of VHS home videos of my sister and I, and I've been thinking of getting it and converting all of them for her. Although this wouldn't be the actual gift, it would create it!

ANTIQUE MARX 1950'S? 1960'S BATTERY OP 42" STUTZ BEARCAT PEDAL CAR

 

The seller doesn't know what he has.  This electric car ran on dry cells that could not be recharged.  My father spent an arm and a leg on batteries.  I still have the car and here is a picture of my oldest riding mine nearly 20 years ago...

Other than new (rechargeable) batteries and the bulb horn, this car is original bumper to bumper.  An electric car is a great car for any small child.

Beautiful watch - would be great for all the young women in your life. Awesome price too! Even though my DD's use their phone for the time, their watch makes a great fashion piece to complete their outfit. Would also make a memorable graduation gift!
