There comes a time when you’re buying or making a gift for someone and you’re trying to think of how they’ll react to it. If they’re like me, they would react very favourably towards a winning lottery ticket, to a horse or a pony, and probably fairly well towards something like a bouquet of large white daisies. And then there’s sometimes when you hand over a gift and watch that friend or colleague rip open the wrapping paper eagerly only to see that huge look of disappointment cross their face before they compose themselves again and look up with a fake smile pasted on their face going “Wow, thanks, just what I always wanted.” And how do you avoid those awkward moments where you just know they’re thinking to themselves “I am going to be regifting this as soon as humanly possible”? Easy, avoid giving them anything on this list.
