LONDON (WUSA) -- Sick of all the hoopla over the upcoming royal wedding? There's a perfect souvenir for you: the Royal Wedding Sick Bag.

"Throne Up," as it is called, is a bag similar to those found on airplanes. They are the brainchild of British designer Lydia Leith. On her website, she is selling hand-screen printed, limited edition versions. Red or blue versions cost 3 British pounds (about $5) each, while a "luxury pair" of gold and purple goes for 8 pounds (about $13). Each bag is hand signed by Leith.

Although she designed the gag gift, Leith hopes people do buy them as real keepsakes. "I do hope that people keep them and maybe frame them and take them seriously, rather than actually use them as a sick bag," Leith said. "It would probably be a bit said if someone does that, but I know someone will do that."

Leith also hopes people who buy her bags take them to their royal wedding celebrations. Of course, not to use in case they get sick. Leith says people have told her they are "going to put confetti in mine and have it at my street party!"

The "Throne Up" bag seems tasteful compared to "Crown Jewels: Condoms of Distinction." It has created the official Royal Wedding condoms. It's complete with a photo of Prince William and Kate Middleton on the box.

"We never quite understood why mugs and plates seemed to be the natural accessories of the royal wedding," said Hugh Pomfret, managing director of Heritage Condoms Limited. "We wanted to come up with a gift and a memento that would be more memorable, more original, and more reflective of the romance of the occasion."

The website for the Crown Jewels souvenir condoms proclaims "Like a Royal Wedding, intercourse with a loved one is an unforgettable occasion." Each box comes with three condoms and what the website calls a "timeless souvenir heirloom collector's box" and a "collectable portrait of the Royal Couple as they might appear on their wedding day."

As of Tuesday morning, the site said it was out of Royal Wedding condoms for sale. It is awaiting a new stock.
