NEW YORK -- Struggling to find a gift for for the person who is on the naughty list?

Instead of coal, how about a rock?

No, seriously. Nordstrom is selling the kind of rocks you can find at your local landscaping company.

For a cool $85, you too can be the proud owner of a rock nestled in a cozy leather pouch.

People, no doubt, are a little confused as to why this is actually a thing. But it's apparently very real.

The description on the retailers site describes it like this:

"A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It's up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching—is sure to draw attention wherever it rests. "

A Nordstrom spokesperson told Buzzfeed that the product was designed by a company called "Made Solid" which sells leather products handmade by artist Peter Maxwell. The company has teamed with Nordstrom before, with the rock-pouch selling out.

There's a slightly smaller, and cheaper version of the rock-pouch being sold for $65.

Reviews on the website are equally as hilarious as the idea of walking around with a random rock in a leather pouch.

One person wrote, "A game-changer-- it's a lady magnet. You'll never be alone if you have this stone in the pocket of your pants."

And "This purchase changed my life in so many ways."
