Unless you’re hosting an ugly Christmas sweater party, this is a decidedly uncool gift to get or give. No one – absolutely no one – needs to be forced to wear “festive” knitwear. If you must force Holiday attire on your friends or loved ones, limit yourself to silly socks…
A fork that tells people to put it down is a down right rude gift. Reconsider your relationship with whoever thinks this is an appropriate Christmas gift.
All I want for Christmas are squirrel foot earrings… said no one ever. Unless you have a virulently vegan/PETA activist you want to horrify, pass these by.
No matter how hairy the giftee, it should not be the subject of a present! No one needs a public reminder…
Adding or subtracting hair should not be a Xmas gift. Let’s leave hair follicles out of this, OK.
Cosies aren’t just for teapots anymore. Teacups, toilet paper, boiled eggs, fruit and toasters don’t need scarves.
If the idea of this gift makes you jumpy, rightly so. Can we agree to take dead animal anything off the gift menu this holiday season?
As if being alone at the holidays isn’t bad enough, having it thrown in your face is just mean. Crockpots for one, electric Ramen noodle cookers or cookbooks for how to cook just enough pasta for your solo supper are just depressing – even for those that are happily single by choice – not a great gift!
Most adults don’t want (or need) a stuffed animal – even a “weawwy” cute one that declares how much the recipient is “wuvved.” These are for children only – otherwise you’re pushing the recipient toward an inevitable appearance on Hoarders. And no one wants that…
T-shirts are cool and animals are great, but disturbingly oversized shirts with giant fuzzy faces on them are a bit too much. Not that you should consider one of these, but if you do, they come in pug, baby orangutan, hamster, meerkat and cow (among others).
Tuition.io’s new gifting program allows you to help out friends, family or anyone with student loans to pay down their debts. And if you’re the one with the loans, you can send a link to share the gifting information page to anyone who asks “what do you want for Christmas?” or Hanukkah or any other occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc) where you might receive a gift.
