Unique Holiday Gift Ideas
Let's be honest, shall we? Your family and friends have enough mugs, ties, and t-shirts. People barely have time to read the books they buy for themselves, let alone the ones you're thinking about buying for them. You've subjected everyone to your musical tastes enough times in the car to know that gifting another copy of Stryper's Greatest Hits is liable to cost you a couple of loved ones.
So what do you get for those you love? Here are some tips.
FOR YOUR PARENTS: The obvious choice for the older generation is some cool, fun, user-friendly tech. Tablets are a great choice, as are mp3 players – the intuitive interfaces are fun and easy. Or you could go the old-fashioned route and buy them one of those snake-in-a-can gags just to see how they take it.
FOR YOUR SIBLINGS: Sibling relationships come in two varieties: devoted, loving compassion, or take-no-prisoners Spy-vs-Spy hijinx. If you and your brethren fit the first category, might we suggest a fragrance? You can check out a few at the Daily Steals Cyber Week store to find the right fit for your sibs. If you're more the second category, you could forgo buying them gifts and just equip yourself with a Victorinox pocket knife to make sure you maintain the upper hand.
FOR YOUR KIDS: First choice is obviously a huge lump of coal, just for the sheer fun of teaching someone a lesson. But, if you feel they've been good enough to warrant disposing of some income, how about buying them an artisan-sharpened pencil? Aside from being a dangerous weapon, it's a great way to say “I love you, but go do your homework.”
FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Hopefully your hubby isn't the type that needs to be impressed – if you have to prove your love for them, we recommend you create some sort of elaborate lawn display for them. In fact, the only acceptable gift is this hilarious camera mug. (Close second place: the Death Star Tea Ball.)
FOR YOUR IN-LAWS: It's hopeless. Our strategy is usually just to sneak some syrup of ipecac and play sick. Our thoughts are with you.
