It's not the gift, but the thought that counts...and your thought sucks! Outblush presents Your Gift Isn't Good Enough, a list of the most common gift-giving faux pas so you can avoid being the one Secret Santa everyone fears.
Yes, we all love bacon. Bacon was designed in a lab to be the perfect, most delicious food, and it exceeded expectations. Everything was copacetic until people started talking about it and it became a trend. The trend spiked because, c'mon, everyone loves bacon...but how much is too much? By this time next year, you're going to feel pretty silly about buying that Bacon Dog Costume.
And for the trend-following gift-giver, it's the same thing. A good gift is timeless, a gag gift is funny for the moment...but the trendy gift is neither. That new moustache product might seem like a good gift now, but that's because you aren't thinking clearly - your brain is wrapped up in the same trend-induced hysteria that once made people pay hard-earned money for rocks. And if we can't convince you - if you're certain that, no, dubstep is different and will be around forever - then we have just one question... when was the last time you wore your thong outside your pants?
