I want you to save this blog to read after Christmas, especially if you’re unhappy with some of your gifts. Here’s Time magazine’s “Worst Christmas Gifts of All Time.”
Then recite after me, “At least no one gave me a toilet.”
Repeat as necessary.
If that doesn’t work, read the following article from The Telegraph, “Cyber Monday: The 10 Worst Christmas Gifts Men Buy for Women,” and recite after me: “At least no one gave me a toilet or a cauliflower.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/10488106/Cyber-Monday-The-10-worst-Christmas-gifts-men-buy-for-women.html
If you’re still unhappy, you may need to lower your expectations. Or buy your own gifts.
