To me the holidays means $$$$$
Buying the turkey dinner, buying new decorations (my current decorations include a light up polar bear and a seal who's head doesn't light up, which means at night my front yard looks like a show on Animal Planet about the natural cycle of life) and of course GIFTS.
There's gifts for my hubby, my daughter, my parents, then there's hubby's parents, hubby's sister, our niece, grandparents (three sets) cousins and their children, oh yeah and friends.
So you know those people in your life, they aren't family, they aren't life long friends. Your relationship with them falls somewhere between, wouldn't want them to get hit by a bus but you're not about to give them your kidney either?
Friendly co-workers who you haven't crossed over to the friendship line. You like chatting with them at work, but you don't want to hang out with them after hours.
Your brother's girlfriend who you know he's going to dump after New Years, but the poor girl doesn't see it coming.
These are people you are sort of indifferent to. You like them alright, but they aren't your favorite human beings on the planet, that's reserved for significant others, children and celebrity crushes.
Here's the thing, how many times have these people given you a gift? Desperately trying to cross the line from bystander to BFF.
They look up at you, doe eyed and adorable, and you have to go and say, "um, yeah, er thanks." Then you rush off to Bath and Body Work and buy some smelly bath stuff. Nothing says, 'I'm sort of indifferent to you' than smelly bath stuff.
Times are tough, budgets are tight, and this is will lead to social awkwardness.
I will buy the gifts for you.
Christmas Gifts for People You Are Indifferent To.
I will give away three mystery gifts.
Mystery gifts may include: a cool book, smell bath stuff and any other stuff that says "I like you, kinda."
You can keep it or give it to someone you sort of care about. Whatever.
