Healthy Woman - - BODY & SOUL -

The phrase ‘mis­ery loves com­pany’ is their motto. It could be some­thing they don’t want any­more and de­cided it’s go­ing to be your prob­lem now. Then there are those who will take a gift they got and hated, re­wrap it and give it to you. This be­comes lethal when that gift just so hap­pens to be one you’d given some­one else be­fore. Just how many peo­ple hated it be­fore it was un­know­ingly re­turned to sender? Gasp!

PROCRASTINATOR GIVER

Coal Level: Medium You can smell the lack of prepa­ra­tion or thought be­hind this present. It was prob­a­bly bought from the su­per­mar­ket that morn­ing since it’s the only store still open on the 25th. It may not even be wrapped! Or there are those who did feel a pang of em­bar­rassed panic and or­dered the gift you wanted on Christ­mas Eve. They’ll usu­ally tell you that the gift was de­layed and should ar­rive way past Christ­mas. (In their defence, it could be some­thing that you want so we’ll cut them some slack.)

TWINSIES GIVER

Coal Level: Medium This present looks fa­mil­iar. Oh wait, the giver bought you the ex­act same scarf they have on now. Their ex­cuse is that they loved it so much they had to get two. Or they bought an item in bulk dur­ing a sale and now have to find a way to off­load them. Now your en­tire ex­tended fam­ily has match­ing sweaters. Yay.

‘ALL HAT, NO CAT­TLE’ GIVER

Coal Level: Down-right Cold They asked you what you wanted and in­sisted too. So when you see the neatly wrapped box you know that it’s the iphone 7 wait­ing for you. When you un­wrap it, it’s the iphone 7 box and you scream your heart out. You open the box and in­side is a pair of ear­rings from the cor­ner store. Whether you’re just a big talker with very poor fol­low through, or just a cruel prankster, this. Is. Not. Cool.

THE SELF-PRO­CLAIMED GIFT WHIS­PERER

Coal Level: Medium They are prac­ti­cally pat­ting them­selves on THEIR EX­CUSE IS THAT THEY LOVED IT SO MUCH THEY HAD TO GET TWO. OR THEY BOUGHT AN ITEM IN BULK DUR­ING A SALE AND NOW HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO OFF­LOAD THEM.
