It’s the time of the year where list are published that highlight the best and worst of the year.  But with Christmas still two and a half weeks away, it must be a horrible gift if it's already claimed the top spot for the worst present of 2016.  The honor goes to an inexplicable product that Nordstrom sells online.  Item number 5264194, a medium leather wrapped stone. Whether it's a paperweight, a work of art or a conversation piece, the Los Angeles, California-area rock is wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching and sells for $85 each.  Made Solid, the company that produces the leather-wrapped stone says the item isn't a joke and is one of their most consistently popular items.  As odd as it sounds, the company is right.  The stone is no longer sold at Nordstrom's web site, either being sold out or the outcry of buying leather-wrapped rock for close to $100 has shamed them into no longer carrying it.  However if you must have it for your holiday, you can buy them from the Made Solid web site [CLICK HERE>, which already has 2 of the 4 versions sold out.
