The 2016 Presidential Candidates Are Offering Some Pretty Quirky Holiday Gifts

The ugly Christmas sweaters went fast.

If you are in need of a last-minute gift idea, some of the 2016 presidential candidates still have holiday-themed presents in stock. 

For your loved ones who are Democrats: 

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's campaign is offering up this "Spirited Support Glass Set," this knit hat and this logo-shaped cookie cutter. (You're out of luck if you were eyeing this actually-not-ugly Christmas sweater or this holiday ornament, as both are sold out.) 

Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) campaign has no holiday gifts in their shop, but if you didn't give your Jewish, Sanders-loving friend or relative a Hanukkah gift they would probably be entertained by this tote bag

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's website, like Sanders', does not offer holiday gear. However, they do have this hoodie

And for your Republican friends or family: 

Sen. Rand Paul's (Ky.) campaign has this Christmas mug that "serves up 15 ounces of hot freedom."

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is offering up cold weather gear with this beanie and scarf combo, as is Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, whose campaign is selling a hat and scarf

Though Cruz's "limited edition" Christmas sweater is sold out, you're in luck if you're a fan of Dr. Ben Carson, as his store still has a Christmas sweater in stock

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's campaign has this colorful Christmas ornament in their store.

And, in an illustration of how campaigns have outsourced much of their operations to their affiliated super PACs, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina's campaign isn't selling any merchandise other than stickers, but her super PAC, Carly for America, has lots of goods in its store, like this Christmas tote bag
