“Grandma told us every year, “Just get me something I can smoke, drink, or eat.””

“Premium subscription to something the person already uses the free version of.

They’re guaranteed to use it, and it’s already something they’ve decided that they weren’t going to splurge on themselves for. So as a gift, it’s both a necessity and a luxury.

I did this for my wife last year and she still talks about what a great gift it was.”

“Every year my grandma would get everyone toilet paper, deodorant, toothpaste, Q-tips….didn’t realize how great it was until she was gone

Grandma didn’t have a lot of money so she would shop at krogers and however much she saved, she would use towards Christmas toiletries.”

“Last year my Dad got me a box of snacks. But they were all things from my childhood he would get me if I was emotional in any way. It was just filled with so much love and happy memories.”

That stuff is too expensive to buy for yourself, like $100/kg, and everybody loves jerky. My cousin got a huge jar of jerky one year, and we were all sitting there gobbling it up around the Christmas tree.”

“Wiper blades. Stop pretending they’re “fine”, you can’t f*****g see!”

“Extra phone chargers and wire organizers. I’ll be damn glad I have an extra charger if mine goes missing/breaks. It’s something I’d probably not think about until it happens, and then I’m scrambling to find a charger before my phone dies.

Wire/cord organizers are just great year-round.”

“One time at work, we were doing this white elephant thing (I don’t remember the exact rules, but essentially, everybody brings a gift and everybody leaves with a different gift). The plan was to buy goofy, funny things, like the non-risque stuff you see at Spencer’s or something. When I opened mine, it was a 124 pack of toilet paper. Everybody laughed and thought it was funny, but I’ve never even come close to receiving a gift as amazing as that, I have no idea why nobody tried to take it from me unless they somehow knew I’d physically fight them over it.”

“One year when I was pretty broke someone gave me a nice tote filled with non perishables. I suddenly had a nice stockpile of stuff like soup, crackers, and cookies and on top of that had a tote to store stuff in when I emptied it!

It was way more useful to me than a soap set or something else like that that they could have potentially given me.”

“My mom always gives me a “care package” that includes: Toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent and trash bags from Costco. I look forward to that s**t every year. I don’t have to worry about buying that stuff for a couple months.”

“Quality Coffee”

“A really good version of something that’s usually inexpensive. A nice pen, great tea or coffee, good leather bound notebooks. Even a nice version of most of those things is going to be under $50 but is still really luxurious.”

“Pet toys. I love when people remember my kitties.”
