This started off as an email to Chris. He doesn't know what to get me for my birthday, and I don't know what I want.
I planned to help him out, so I googled "awesome birthday presents for the best girlfriend ever" (of course). The results were far too hilarious to keep to myself...the internet apparently thinks I'm an idiot.
These are probably the most uninspired, crappy presents ever. Especially that magnet that says "I love Bryan". Who the heck is Bryan?
I thought these might be good, but they are mostly just heart-shaped. I really don't want a chastity ring, either. That would be a SAD birthday.
These are quite terrible, and I'm not sure what a 'card with a casual tone' might be, but I doubt that I want one. I don't know how to celebrate casually.
Wow. This one's a shocker. In particular, if somebody gives me a 'weight loss gift', I will definitely punch them in the face. Even (especially) if you use the 'sensitive' example letter to explain your selection.
There may be some cultural difference causing issues here (the article is from India), but a second credit card on a man's account is a f*king horrible idea. Especially when I'm perfectly able to manage my *own* bank account. How rude.
Yep, I know it's the thought that counts. Which is why thought is IMPORTANT. Googling stuff is not the same as thinking about it.
Anyone ever got a horrible birthday present and wondered why? Or a particularly awesome birthday present that came as a big surprise? Share!
