Presents You Do Not Want To Find Under The Tree

There are some things you should not gift.

Presents You Do Not Want To Find Under The Tree

Sometimes we want to be creative with our gifts and this causes us to get a little "wild." It is best to play it safe and not get people gifts they will hate this holiday season. Because remember: what goes around comes around.

1) A box of raisin cookies in a package that says chocolate chip cookies. That is just a cruel cruel gift. With one bite into the cookie, your life will be over.

A moon rock. Not going to lie this is pretty creative, but no one wants to only receive a tiny "moon rock."

3) A name necklace with your name misspelled. Mark or Cark? That is just rude. If you do not know how to spell my name correctly, then you lose the right of getting gifts for me. Oh also, name necklaces are non-refundable so you have to keep them. HORRIBLE.

4) A tiny sample bottle of perfume that smells nasty. Do not gift perfume. It's that simple. Every person likes a different smell and the fragrance you enjoy does not mean your friend enjoys. Also it says "SAMPLE" on the tiny samples, so save the embarrassment.

5) Granny Panties. Not really sure why anyone would think gifting granny panties is okay? Just get your girl a gift card to Victoria Secret because a pair of sexy undies is about thirty to fifty dollars.

6) Or even worse... camel toe undies. I have no words for this. All I can say is that these undies sure look uncomfortable and I am sure no women in your life would want a pair.

7) An avocado. I do not think anyone could be this happy with an avocado gift. You actually have to slice this avocado to make toast or guacamole. The better gift would have been a bowl of chips and guacamole.

8) A fanny pack that looks like a stomach. Now come on, this just looks creepy. I will give it credit that it is creative, but it looks a bit too realistic to the point where it seems like you literally unzipped your stomach.

9) A candy cane shaped vibrator. This is definitely something you do not want to unwrap in front of your younger siblings or parents. Oh the horror.

10) An opened bottle of wine. Someone actually have my dad a present like that. The bottle was opened and a fourth of it was gone. How hard is it to go to the store and buy a twelve dollar bottle of wine, instead of ruining your image and giving someone an opened bottle?

11) Getting someone a sweater that is triple their size. Funny, but this also happened to my dad. I find this to be beyond disrespectful. It shows you are making fun of the person's weight one way or another. If you want to gift a sweater, then ask someone who is close to the person what size the individual actually wears. Or include an gift receipt.

12) A weird pencil shaper. This just looks wrong and I am sure no one wants to display this at their desk at work.

These gifts will be a topic for discussion and might even cause a few laughs here and there, but it is best to avoid them. These gifts might cause you relationships, friendships, and your family members abandoning you.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
