In pictures: Kitsch Christmas gifts

Each year, satirical Christian website Ship of Fools publishes a selection of kitsch gifts it has seen for sale through the year. Pictured, a cross on which Jesus appears with the wearer's body heat.

iPod lanyard

The site calls its line-up - largely culled from US websites - the Twelve Days of Kitschmas. Included is this chain which converts an iPod into a cross.

Narnia bookends

Also featured are these 149 Narnia bookends. "Caressing your Chronicles, these are collectables in conflict - good versus evil," the site says.

Nativity kitchen timer

A Nativity kitchen-timer. "Cast out your worldly timer, and let Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus provide immaculate time-keeping for your turkey," the site says.

Waitwear T-shirt

Part of the 'Waitwear' range for teens who don't want to have sex. Other items include underwear with words "I'm Saving It!" written on them.

Miracle wheel

The Miracle wheel - move it round and it turns water into wine. More items and details on the Ship of Fools site.
