Know someone who loves all that stuff that looks vintage but really isn’t? Here’s something for them: a vintage-esque tissue box holder meant to look like an old fashioned gum wrapper. But oddly, it has the words ‘TISSUE BOX COVER’ printed right on it which kind of ruins the effect.
There’s also a happy tooth and a line drawing of a box of tissues, which makes the whole thing even more confusing. And yet, I can totally see how that confusion might appeal to someone into that sort of thing. Hell, in twenty years or so, my kids might just pine after one of these because it’s so damn self-referentially kitschy. I’m gum! No, I’m a tissue box!
(As an aside, do people still put their tissue boxes under covers so no one has to look at the cardboard box? That always struck me as very weird. Just put your dang tissues in the cabinet.)
