Who said there is no such thing as the perfect gift?! Anti-Flatulence Bedsheets are now on sale.

The company Shreddies already sells fart-mitigating underwear. Now they’ve added two bedding products: An undersheet that your regular sheets go on top of and a “Flatulence Filtering Duvet Cover” to keep your nighttime emissions trapped.

Both options use the same technology as the underwear they sell. Carbon fibers absorb the flatulence, then neutralize it. A king size undersheet costs about $160, plus shipping. The duvet cover is $260. You can check them out at MyShreddies.com.
