All out of gift ideas? Why not get your loved one a Dowsing rod! Instead of giving more money to conglomerates, just head down to your local woodland and look for a Y-shaped twig.
Despite being banned by the Catholic Church and deemed “satanic”, dowsing was practised in Germany during the sixteenth century in an attempt to find metals. In South Dakota, it was used in the nineteenth century to help ranchers locate water wells. There are even those who believe that dowsing can help locate buried remains!
So, with their new dowsing rod, your loved one can look for water, hidden treasure, and even dead bodies! Now that’s a birthday to remember! (*dowsing has no scientific backing. Avid Games is not responsible for the discovery of dead bodies via dowsing.)
