Blow some smoke with quirky gifts

NEED to blow some smoke over finding a gift for someone who has everything this Christmas?

Buy them a barbecue that looks like a V8 engine.

The item has recently become available at Harvey Norman in Rockhampton and is retailing for $1199.

But you might want to hurry as there were only three available as of yesterday lunchtime.

Harvey Norman appliance manager Angelique Dielwart said a lot of people had stopped, looked and remarked 'wow' already at the Gasmate V8 Engine barbecue.

"The smoke comes out of the exhaust when the hood is down," she said.

"It also has a stainless steel grill."

But the barbecue is not the only quirky item available to fill Santa stockings in the store.
