Our Despicable Guide to Last Minute FU X-Mas Gifts
The Fuck You gift is a perversion of all the holidays stand for. It is a truly despicable, evil gesture reserved for only the most cynical and sinful amongst us. It is a dark art Riptide mastered as a bitter, bitter teenager, and one thankfully I am largely beyond, but while Christmas shopping this year I was tempted, so very tempted by the stress of it all. See, that is where the Fuck You gift stems. Because frankly, the mass produced craps on our store shelves don't really express all the good cheer and love we've been told they're supposed to. Trying to find the perfect gift for the ones we love is so often exacerbating it's some what cathartic to find the gifts that express the exact opposite for those we're almost obligated to wrap something up for despite our secret disdain. And that's the beauty of the Fuck You gift. Inevitably a lot more thought goes into them than whatever generic candle or fancy chocolate you'd get that step parent, obnoxious secret santa recipient, racist uncle or brother's miserable new girlfriend anyway. Isn't it the thought that counts, anyway?
