Gifts for People You Hate

The holidays are a time of sharing, caring, and spending time with the people you love.

But you can’t love everyone. Yet you may still have to buy obligatory gifts for people you don’t especially care for, whether it’s a loathed co-worker, a distant relative who isn’t distant enough, or a tech-obsessed friend who’s really started to get on your nerves.

Remember: Even Santa occasionally puts a lump of coal into someone’s stocking. You know they totally deserve it.

This guide is for them.
