A Top 10 List For Holidays
It's the holiday season and things are in full swing, as well as they can be for the year 2020. I did a bit of hunting on the internet to come up with the top ten list that I have listed below.
If you're ready, here we go.
TOP 10 LIST OF GIFTS YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE
1- Underwear. Not a gift you want to open up in front of the family. This gift is a big NO NO for a co-worker.
2- Souvenirs. Believe me when I tell you that nobody wants a jank gift from your vacation. Don't do it!
3- Pets. Adopting a pet is a serious commitment. Never ever should a pet be given as a "gift."
4- Clothing. Unless you are Mom or Dad buying for a child, don't do it. The only exception is if the receiver of the gift has picked out the clothing item and actually put it in your hand, or you are sent a screen shot and the worlds "I want this" follow.
5- CDs or DVDs. These aren't a thing anymore.
6- Cash. Some people say you shouldn't give cash, but I gotta admit, I would not have a problem with it.
7- Candles. Another thing some people say you shouldn't give that I love getting as a gift. I love candles, but apparently others disagree.
8- Household Basics. This would include things like a mop, bucket, scrub brush, etc. Unless you are buying for Cinderella, do not do this.
9- Gym Memberships. Unless you have a direct request (make sure the request is in writing).
10- Major Purchases. Sure the commercials make it look wonderful, but someone will probably want to pick out their own car, appliance or whatever the purchase it.
A few bad gift ideas to add to the list are eyebrow razor, personalized branding iron, a cremation urn for their ashes, or a stripper pole.
These are also a safety reminder. It is usually best to stick to the list and do not go gift shopping rogue.
