11 Things To Get Your Clingy, Needy Significant Other This Holiday Season

At least once in your life, you're going to encounter a person in your life (most likely your partner) who's unbelievably clingy to the point of being so unbearable that you just want to scream. If this is the case for you this Christmas, here are some not-so-subtle gifts to tell them to back off.

1. Roses

Get them a bouquet of roses, but add a personal touch. Rip the actual flower parts off so that all you're left with is stem, thorns, and pain. When they inevitably come over to your house to pester you, shove the thorn-bouquet in their hands and explain to them the symbolism of the thorns ("This represents all of the angst you've caused me!") Then, when they're on the brink of tears, explain to them that it was all a joke.

2. A Locket

Because they're clearly so obsessed with you, buy them a cheap little locket (to represent your dingy love for them) and put a picture of yourself in it. If you want to go the extra mile, put a lock of hair in it. This gift really shows that you care because you went out of your way to cut off your hair so that they wouldn't have to.

3. A Restraining Order

If you really want to tell them how you feel, nix the sentimental stuff and go straight to court. File a restraining order because they can't seem to leave you the hell alone. Be sure to throw in a "I'm sorry it's come to this" for extra guilt for them and one final twinge of self-satisfaction for you.

4. A Body Pillow

This is for those nights when they just won't shut up about wanting to be near you. Whenever you're on vacation and aren't there with them, cram a body pillow in their bed so they can at least have some semblance of human contact.

5. Plane Tickets

Buy them a plane ticket for a luxury getaway as far from you as possible. Book them a trip to Japan and say "Sayonara" to your annoying love koala. (Hey, maybe the plane'll even crash and then you could really get away from them!)

6. An Extremely Heavy Coat

Get them the heaviest coat they've ever had in their lives. With any luck, while you're walking around in the mall, it'll slow them down enough to the point where you'll actually have some personal space.

7. Steel-Toed Boots

This one is actually for YOU! Treat yourself to some nice steel-toed boots for those days when you just want to kick them to get them off of you. (As annoying as they are, don't actually do that. You might get arrested.)

8. Tickets for A Cruise

Book them tickets for a cruise "around the world." Those take forever and hey, maybe when they're out and about, exploring the planet, they'll find someone else! Let them be someone else's problem for a while.

9. Go To Disney

Go to Disney with them. Ride a ride. At the very top of the coaster, push them off (but make it look like an accident!) If that doesn't work, ditch them in a crowded spot and get the next flight out of there.

10. Take them to the Grand Canyon

Take them on a romantic trip to the Grand Canyon. When you get to the lookout point, casually mention that you forgot your backpack and that you'll be right back. Never return.

11. Another Cell Phone

Encourage them to cheat on you and find someone else by getting them another cell phone and "turning a blind eye." Download Tinder onto the phone. Leave extremely "subtle" hints.

*Disclaimer: This is satire. Please do not do any of these things. If you have a clingy partner, please be nice to them and try to understand. Love and cherish them. If you really do have to break up with someone, please don't file a restraining order or do it over text.*

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

26414

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
