SLIDESHOW: Holiday Gifts for the Weird at Heart
For Your Weird Foodie Friend
Most of the presents on this list tend towards the pricey end of things, but there's always room for a weird homemade gift or two. If you don't have a lot of money, but still want to give your loved ones something a little off kilter, why not try making a big batch of George Washington's egg nog? All it takes is cream, eggs, sugar, milk, and enough booze to float a frigate. The recipe is available from The Old Farmer's Almanac although -- as the site notes -- while our first President was explicit about the need for rum and rye whiskey, he was less precise when it came to the number of eggs you should add. Personally, I went with a cool dozen.
