You know those presents that people get you just because they have to, and they know that you will never use them and you have to pretend that you like them, I really do try to pretend but my poker face is weak! So weak….. Why don’t people just get you something that you will use, like a shower gel or body lotion. Those are the gifts that you like because a) you will for sure use them and b) you always need shower gel etc. And they just don’t have to be expensive, I would rather a gift that costs a fiver that I will use to one that costs more that I will put in a press for a couple of years and then give to charity after I find it again.
If you have a friends Christmas present group that the limit is €5 – €10 get them something that they will actually use. Those funny presents are just not that funny!
