Just Some of the Gifts Best Not Sent This Christmas
Okay, hereís the thing. Itís a gift. When you get a lousy one, just say thank you and get on with your life. Itís still the thought that counts, remember. And anyway, when it comes to giving gifts, there shouldnít be any rules. No prescriptions. Yeah, yeah. Itís the holidays, and trust that every corny figurine or kitchen towel gift delivered your way comes with the best of wishes.
Still, there are just some gifts that are best not sent, not because theyíre lousy but because everyone else is giving it to their loved ones. For a change, deliver a gift thatís unpredictable. Be creative and astounding. Surely, with our malls filled with every conceivable merchandise and gift ideas, you can do better than the following:
Photo album. Weíve been getting photo albums since time immemorial. Yes, we love taking pictures and there seems to be not enough space to store them, and photo albums are sure useful. But hey, let them worry about it. Give a gift thatís unique; not something that has sticky pages.
Suggestion: a sketch pad or a scrap book. Add some pencils, crayons, oil pastel too. This is sure to unleash the creative side in anyone.
Perfumed candles. Not again. Yes, theyíre sweet-smelling and comes in different colors, but you donít want to be blamed for accidental burning down of your friendís living room. Kidding.
Suggestion: Perfume. No one has any argument against getting perfume for a gift during holidays. It can be a refreshing change, especially if your loved ones are a bit too clingy to their old perfume.
Sun Dress. Trust us, when you get old, you donít want to be getting a duster for a gift. Deliver to the women in your life, be she your grandma, great aunt, or mom, something that will make them feel forever young.
Suggestion: Flower delivery. Perfect way bring them back to sweet memories of their suitors, their sweethearts, crushes, dear husbands, to their bustling love life.
Cutlery. Certainly not a good idea since youíll be burdening your gift recipient the trouble of always getting out the cutlery set every time youíre a guest in their house just so you can say theyíre using it. Guess, what, they arenít. But at least their efforts at charade can be forgiven. So, your best bet isÖ..
Suggestion: Wow Magic Sing microphone. Now this is something every household has a use for. Make your loved ones happy, well-bonded with each other and sore-throated. Itís all worth it!
There. In the midst of wrapping your gift for your Philippine loved ones. Think it over again. Chances are, theyíve already read this. Happy Holidays!
