Nordstrom Wants to Sell You an $85 Leather-Encased Rock
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for each and every person on your list this year, we’ve got you covered. From gender-neutral gifts to white elephant gifts, popular personalized gifts to totally affordable (yet still luxe) gifts, we can point you in the right direction. We can even help you track down the ideal present for the traveler, the boss & coworkers, the joker or the kiddo in your life. The one gift idea we didn’t expect to pop up this year — and have no clue who you’d give it to — is an $85 leather-encased rock. And frankly, even the peeps selling it have no idea why.
If you’ve always thought it would be impossible to track down the snazziest rock around, which also happens to come in its own handy little leather case, then thank goodness for Nordstrom. That’s right — for just $85, you can nab a Medium Leather Wrapped Stone.
The description starts: “A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art?” …which kinda proves that even they have no clue why the heck they’re selling this thing. But don’t think this is just any rock! The “smooth Los Angeles-area stone — wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching — is sure to draw attention wherever it rests.” Yeah, especially when people find out you blew $85 on a friggin’ rock.
Although this rock might be about to get super famous, that is, if its (parody) Twitter account takes off.
