We met Bill. Now meet Hillary. I don't think it comes as a surprise to anyone to see her acting as an official nut cracker. Then again, he seemed to get away with quite a bit, don't you think?

Implications - Politically themed gag gifts always pop up during the election season, and this cheeky example from the 2008 election season reinforced Hillary Clinton's resilient personality and tough reputation. Product designers can take advantage of this seasonal niche by creating products that use humor and wit while integrating core aspects of the celebrity or politician's public perception. As with all gag gifts, pushing toward extremes and focusing on controversy will help products stand out among the pack. Stats for Celebrity Nutcrackers Trending: Older & Mild
