Perfect Gifts for People You Hate!
The Gift of Passive Aggressive Giving
Let's face it, sometimes we are obligated to buy holiday gifts for people we really don't like. It might be a boss, an in-law, your sister or your boyfriend's sister! It just wouldn't be right to come to the party empty handed.
It can be a nightmare to purchase the right gifts for those we love - don't let buying gifts for the people you hate make your holiday miserable. Have fun and get the perfect gift. Not only will it send the proper message to the recipient but you will feel really good about yourself for having been so generous!

The Road to Riches Starts With One Share!
One Share of Stock
One Share is a brokerage that allows you to purchase one share of stock as a gift. You can purchase shares of the recipient's favorite brands and thus begin their road to investing in their future. One Share allows you to purchase the certificate online and can be sent in a beautiful frame or even customized!
How about sending the "nag" in your life a beautifully framed certificate for a share of Kimberly Clark? That would be so thoughtful and truly says it all!
For the gossip? You could send a share of "Beasley Broadcast Group."
How about the person who just acts like an absolute dog? Petsmart!
This year you can make those special people in your life = shareholders!

The Power of Reading
Books always make great gifts. I frequently gift coffee table books to friends with gorgeous color photographs in topics they are interested in. I bought my husband a huge Rolling Stones coffee table book years ago and he still keeps it in his office.
Books can be even more fun when you buy them for those people who require obligatory gifts. Make it a fun event for yourself and the money will be much better spent!
For the person who continuously acts as if they don't know how to behave in the break room to the psychos we all know and love there is a book befitting every personality.
Praise the Lord!
- Christmas Gifts For In-Laws (You Don't Like)
Ever wonder what to purchase your in-laws for Christmas? Why? It doesn't matter as they're not going to like them anyway! If that's the case, here's some suggestions that might bring you some fun during the rest of the year!
For the Preacher in Your Life
This would make a lovely gift selection for the preacher in your life! This is for the person who always starts their sentences with, "you know what you should do?" This would also make the perfect choice for that person who constantly wants to cram their religion down your throat. This might be the person that will be heard exclaiming, "Amen!", "Hallelujah" or "Praise the Lord!" after every sentence has been spoken by anyone.
You can't go wrong with the Jesus Toaster. Each morning, your loved one can rejoice with Jesus Toast and coffee! Amen to that!
For the Tool
Tools are great gifts. Nothing says screw you more than this big fat Stanley Stubby Screwdriver. Additionally, it has multi bits! I think it's safe to say you can't go wrong putting this in your cart!
For the Busy Person
If you know someone who is so busy that they constantly call you to do things for them - this is the perfect gift for them. Nothing will show them how much you appreciate being at their beck and call more than this nifty present. Ringing your bell will be easier than ever and save your friend the time of having to speak when they want to summon you.
Better Safe than Sorry?
Now these might come in handy for the person in your life that is full of it. We all know someone such as this and Emergency Underpants are sure to be just the thing. Next time your gassy buddy forgets the beano - don't fear. There will be no emergency here.
These pants would be great for the person who is constantly yelling and red faced. Everything's eventual and those screamers sometimes have sphincter issues, hence the screaming.
These emergency pants can fit discretely in a purse, desk drawer or right in the old briefcase. Come what may - you might just save the day for someone.
Coffee Table Books!
I have always had a secret fantasy about sending someone one of the edible gift baskets or flower arrangements. It's the only way I can think of getting away with saying, "Eat Me" to those loving gift recipients.
Obligatory gift giving doesn't have to be a hassle and you can certainly choose the perfect gift for your intended. Say exactly what is on your mind and rejoice in the holiday season. Remember, it's the thought that counts!
Keep it Real!
