The holiday gift guide for people you don’t like

I know the feeling. You just blew your bonus on the amazing Black Friday sale that Amazon had and yet you have a ton of presents to buy for people you don’t particularly like.

Not the most subtle gift maybe? But who cares, you don’t have to leave your name on it. The trick here is to slip your present in the pile when no one is looking. Volunteer to pass out the presents and make sure to give that bitchy colleague the present you brought. Savour the awkward silence that will follow after the gift is unwrapped.

Bonus points if the train has a loud blaring horn.

The kids will be thrilled. I highly doubt the parents will be.
