No, we’re not snowing you. A zoo in Bloomington, Ill., is hawking the ultimate gift for the person who has everything: Necklaces made from “magical reindeer gems.” Or to put it less genteelly, reindeer poop, which zoo elves dehydrated, sanitized, drilled, and painted to create pendants shaped like miniature snowmen—complete with jaunty top hats! Sold out as of Sunday, these scatological sparklers were so popular they raked in $20,884 for the zoo this year. On Dasher! On Dancer!

Are reindeer poop "gems" haute or not?
