Funny Christmas Ads

by MomGrind

In case you were at a loss as to what would make your loved ones happy this holiday season, allow me to make a few suggestions, inspired by fifties-era Christmas ads, from advertisers who were clearly out of their minds.

A bathroom scale

No other gift says “I care about you” quite like a bathroom scale.
