christmas tree

The Christmas season is officially here and whether you like it or not, it's time to start figuring out what you are going to get your family/friends as gifts. I'm sure all the bombardments of 99% off sales are tempting you just go out and get the cheapest thing from the clearance rack, slap a bow on it and call it a day, but trust me, DON'T DO IT! Although every person is different, there are some items that are absolute NO-NO's to buy for ANYONE for Christmas! If I can't tell you exactly what TO buy, and can't certainly help you avoid what NOT to buy and hopefully keep some BAH-HUMBUG out of your Holiday!

  1. Women - Giving her ANY gift that will imply her having to do housework or losing weight of some kind is a BAAAADDDD idea! (i.e., vacuum cleaners, microwaves, workout equipment) Even IF she's asked for it at some point during the year, DON'T!
  2. Men - Ladies, most guys HATE receiving CLOTHES for Christmas or anything they can't use straight out of the box! Don't but us anything we have to wear if it doesn't have a sexy matching outfit for you! Any even if it does, don't make it the main gift no matter how nice YOU may look in YOUR outfit!
  3. Boys  - See above from the "Men's" section: This one is to all the knitting, crocheting, and pillow club member mom's, aunts, and grannies out there! The most inexpensive, battery operated ANYTHING from the the toy store is better that the sweater-socks-and-hat matching ensemble that took you all SUMMER to finish!
  4. Girls - ANYTHING she DIDN'T ask for! Little girls are the most picky creatures on the planet! They will give each person they expect to receive a gift from, a specific list of stuff they want from THAT particular person! Switching of item on the list is strictly prohibited without explicit authorization from said little girl!

What's the worst gift you've  ever received for Christmas/
