The Worst Last Minute Christmas Gifts

It's always a stressful time hunting for Christmas gifts to give to friends and co-workers. Yeah, everyone wants to give cool gifts, but most of the time we're a little strapped for cash. And you know how malls are packed with people - crazy, hot-headed people, that is... Add to that the pressure of getting a gift that will make its recepient say "Wow! What a great present!" Even if we don't have the time to shop or we don't have enough money for that "WOW!" gift we can still find good bargains around.

But please, AVOID giving the following gifts for Christmas:

  1. Scented candles - Unless your friend is a new age junkie and digs weird wicca stuff, scented candles are way UN-cool!
  2. Bars of soap - we're not elementary students anymore doing the "exchange gift".
  3. Exercise Videos or Diet Books - even if the package is cute and you mean well, it is impossible to give a gift of this kind without offending the receiver.
  4. Ceramic Figurine - see #2
  5. Face Towel - see #2
  6. Cartoon Character Ties - what are you stuck in the 90s? Whoever still wears cartoon character ties should be shot... on the spot!
  7. Photo Album - this is probably the worst of all... and that includes a photo frame. Burn whoever gives you a lousy photo album (or photo frame) this Christmas.
  8. Socks - most people are happy to buy their own socks and would rather do so than receive them as a present.
  9. Punch Bowl - who would use a punch bowl these days?
  10. Ugly hand bags - why are they even made in the first place?
They all say, it's not about the gift, it's the thought that counts, right? WRONG! If you're giving horrible, tacky, and tasteless gifts for Christmas, that equates to THOUGHTLESSNESS on your part.

Oliver Twist on Radio!

I'm now on radio! Tune in on 96.7 K-Lite, the No. 1 Hit Music Station in Baguio City. I'm gonna be a semi-regular co-host of Dana Grey on Heart to Heart, weeknights, 7 to 9 in the evening. AND catch me on K-Lite Interactive with Hanna Grace, every Saturday 7 to 10 in the morning. AND I'm gonna be playing the Top 25 songs on The Weekend Countdown, right after K-Lite Interactive until 1 in the afternoon.

So, keep it right here on 96.7 K-Lite... the Official Radio Station of the Yuletide Season!
