Who wants a dimaond for Christmas when you could have a glittery piece of poo hanging around your neck? The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, Illinois, is selling limited edition reindeer droppings necklaces to raise money for the zoo.

Called ‘Magical Reindeer Gems,' the reindeer droppings necklaces are handmade using dehydrated and sterilized reindeer poop. The dime-sized dung is spray-painted with glitter and strung on wire with beads.
