The Passive Aggressive Gift Guide For Sassy Friends

IMG_6545Photographed by Gabriela Landazuri.
Everyone has that one friend (or maybe it's you) who's just so — oh, what's the word — indifferent. No, indifferent sounds negative. How about nonchalant? They don't really care for gifts, but they don't complain if they receive one either. Perhaps they're a little sassy and their "how thoughtful" thank-you comes off as sarcastic rather than grateful. Perhaps they're just super critical of everything (they're always a Miranda Hobbes of the group, right?), and shopping for them is never easy. So, why not throw the sass back at 'em while still spreading good ole holiday cheer?
Glo has put together a tongue-in-cheek gift guide for those particularly picky friends and those people you don't really know, but know well enough that you kind of have to get them a gift. There's no use toiling over what to get; just be random (how early Aught of you!). Show them just how much you really kind of don't care, but actually do it with a French version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Throw some casual shade with a Modern Manners book. These are merely guidelines. Heck, go rogue and just hand deliver a taxidermic reindeer. The world is your oyster when it comes to these friends. (Glo)
