What Not to Get Me for Christmas

I'm all for gift guides. Don't get me wrong. But when every blogger has gift guides for every personality ever, I don't think there's anything I can add that's not already out there. That's why I've decided to make a list of things to not get people (more specifically me) for Christmas this year.

1. Bath & Body Works anything

I know we all love to smell like chestnuts roasting on an open fire, or whatever scent is "in" this year, but a girl can only own so many scented lotions, body sprays and shower gels. Plus this is probably the easiest gift you can ever get someone so unless you're trying to make someone feel unimportant, don't head to Bath & Body Works this year.

2. Gift Cards to anywhere you're not positive they'll love
You know what's awkward? When you have to pretend to be happy to get a Claire's gift card from a distant relative. Yes I know that sounds utterly selfish and snobby, but honestly it's just a waste of money to buy a gift card unless you're 100% positive the recipient will shop there (read: has a specific store on their wish list). You're always better off getting someone money. Yes, it's the easiest gift ever, but everyone will love it.

3. iTunes gift cards, CDs, or anything that's basically obsolete now
Some adults don't really understand how fast the music world is changing and think that getting you an iTunes gift card is a gift from God. I'm sorry but I'm a Spotify-only kind of girl so unless you're willing to pitch in for another year of Spotify premium, I'm not interested in any music-related gifts.

4. Knick Knacks
I like gag gifts as much as the next immature 20-year-old but at some point it just becomes too much. I don't need more stuff. If you're going to get me something I'm not going to use, I'm probably going to donate it anyway, so do everyone a favor and just make a donation to the local food bank in my name, okay?

Well, now you know what not to get me for Christmas... you know, in case any of my readers are planning to get me anything, ha! I'm so glad it's finally the holiday season, be prepared for annoying tweets of holiday cheer! Yay! And don't forget to follow my Pinterest and my Christmas board for all of your holiday needs!
