Sometimes we get invited to places or parties we do not wish to go to. For instance, the annoying boss who decided to throw an unnecessary colleague gathering, or the rude so-called friend who happen to invite you to their birthday party. Consequently, you are going to have to get a gift. Now, I’m not saying you should act all evil and bash them with a horrible gift. That’s not the point of this list. You will get them a normal gift like everyone else, but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw in some shade.

1. Burt’s Bees Repair Cream
At first glance, this may seem like a cute little gift basket; however, it will be something that will make you think twice. Are you telling me that my hands & feet need repair? Not a very attractive gift and especially for someone you barely know or not super close with. Yikes!
2. Deodorant Pack
There is nothing wrong with deodorants, but a pack of 6? And as a gift? If this doesn’t translate to ‘You Stink’, I don’t know what else does.
3. Be Nice Books
Not saying you are not nice, but if the shoes fit… In other words, there’s always room for ‘self-improvement’.
How Not To Be An Asshole
How to Be a Decent Human Being
Be Nice (Or Else!)
4. Golden Comb
Oh my goodness, this list is not getting any better. Yep, a golden comb. I’m not sure if it means they need to comb their hair regularly or that they are just as fake as the fake-gold plated comb.
5. Great Movies! (DVD)
The greatest movies ever made, or at least that’s what we would say. However, make sure they aren’t familiar with Cinema, the movie industry, or any movie whatsoever to fall for this trick. For, the whole point was to waste their time. But, if they love it, then they are actually worse than what you thought they were.
6. The Gift of Nothing
This Gift is perfect especially for those who keep saying “I don’t want anything”. Nope, we’re not going to waste time trying to figure out a gift for you; you really aren’t that important; so, here’s a gift of nothing – as requested.
7. Artificial Air Plants
It’s fake, lifeless, and in all honesty not so pretty. In other words, it reminds me of someone I know.
8. Anti-Aging Skincare Box
I guess the gift speaks for itself. No comments are needed; the message is clear, and so are the wrinkles.
9. Pointless Items
Just get them one of the following items with no apparent reason whatsoever. And in case they asked, just say it’s one of the best-selling items on Amazon! In all fairness, the items below are indeed popular but, for all the wrong reasons, their uselessness.
Nicolas Cage Mermaid Pillow Case
10. The Crappiest Gift
Ok, now you really can’t hide it anymore, and you decided to settle on the crappiest gift you could find. No problem, pretend it’s a joke. Besides, it’s still toilet paper…which can still be used…Ok, I’m guessing deep down, they’ll get the meaning.
