You better not cry
When I was [about] 20, I bought my boyfriend a nice coat that he wanted and needed and maybe 100 dollars worth of some other things he really wanted/needed.
He got me some off-brand bath accessories gift basket that was worth maybe $15 (due to seasonal mark-up), probably less.
I am going with cheap, general gift baskets from department stores/a pharmacy/dollar stores for people of which you are intimate. It’s a great way to say, “I put absolutely no thought into this, and I am also really cheap.” (ifiwereapickle)
Haribo sugar-free gummy bears. I don’t think they’re being sold anymore, but there are gummis that will have the same effects. (linux_vegan)
It’s the “sugar-free” part that causes the “difficulties.” Instead of sugar, some sugar-free candy contains something called sugar alcohol(s) that will practically make you poop yourself when consumed in large quantities. (Flip3206)
When I was five, my parents disguised a present by putting a towel on top of it so I’d open the gift and think I got a towel. Apparently, I missed the joke completely and thought the towel was part of my gift.
I kept asking for “my” towel when I took showers and my parents kept trying to explain to me that it wasn’t my towel, it was just a joke. And then I would cry because they were taking my towel away. (KELLYGIGS)
