Gift Them What They Deserve ~ Your Holiday Hostess Gift Guide from The Suniverse

gift-them

Unless you’re a complete misanthrope, you’ll probably be headed somewhere at some point during the upcoming holiday season. Whether you’re with friends or family, you’ll want to take something along to show your appreciation for being invited and also to show that you’re not a complete piker.

But what to take?

That’s a question that is fraught with minefields, and it seems like no one has a good answer. Too cheap, and you look insulting. Too much, and you look like a braggart. It’s a thin line, and drinking steadily from Halloween until Valentine’s Day doesn’t make navigating it any easier.

Until now.

Because I want to help alleviate your stress, and because I am a giver, here is The Suniverse’s Holiday Gift Guide. It’s a foolproof list of what to take as a gift wherever you are going. It’s divided by age and relationship, like science classifications, so you can rest assured that the information is tested and true. What are you waiting for? Take a look and get started!

Your parents

YOUNG:
Nothing. You’re still a kid in their eyes.

NOT-SO-YOUNG:
A home-baked goodie, or a reasonable facsimile.

REALLY-NOT-SO-YOUNG:
Nothing. You’ve been a great disappointment. They expect nothing of you, so you can just deliver.

Your in-laws / partner’s parents [Read more...]

DEAR SUNIVERSE:

If men have sexy, sexual wives, why do they STILL go to slutty strip bars, discuss with strippers their lives, and come home to tell you that the stripper is now a “friend”? Lord god, kill me now.

Dear Suniverse,

Why is Mariah Carey?

Confused


Dear Confused,

Why, indeed?

I confess, I know very little about Mariah Carey.  I know that she’s married to Nick Cannon, but the only reason I know who Nick Cannon is is because he was once on The Chappelle Show.  Is he a muppet?  Is she? [Read more...]

Dear Suniverse,

I am about to move to a very small town, where I will no doubt immediately alienate most of the population, terrify some and enrage the rest. Do you think I should I buy a red or yellow bicycle for the road raging event that I am sure will see the end of me?
