Christmas is a time for spreading a wonderful amount of holiday cheer. You are surrounded by the people you love, the world outside is covered in snow and Christmas lights, and you’re (almost) guiltlessly eating all of the holiday treats your tummy can take. The holiday cheer is so contagious, you almost don’t mind shuffling through busy crowds and loaded buses to get the perfect gift for the ones you love.
But as the days whittle down the insanity amps up, and some of that lovely cheer you felt diffuses into holiday panic. Your inner Grinch, not matter how small it is, always makes an appearance when herding through massive amounts of frantic shoppers on a mission to find a gift for someone you aren’t so fond of, someone who really isn’t worth the screaming kids and the pushy bargain-hunters. Someone, inevitably, is on your list that you are less than fond of, and this year, you’d like to show them just how high up they made it on your naughty list.
All season long we’ve been giving you ideas and guides for perfect gifts for the people you love in your life, but what about the people you aren't that fond of? Maybe you can’t stand your boss or a nosey neighbor this holiday season. Or maybe you pulled a lame name from the Secret Santa pool at work, or have to buy your brother’s annoying girlfriend something, anything, just so you can get through the holiday with a little less stress. Well, if any of these people claim to be "foodies," we’ve pulled together a hilarious list of gifts that are completely lackluster.
We dug up everything from terrible as-seen-on-TV finds to silly "of the month" club memberships that will make the recipient do a double take. After all, what says "Merry Christmas, I Hate You" more than unwrapping a hot dog slicer or a wine sippy cup?
