With Christmas just days away, last minute shoppers are feeling the pressure to finish buying gifts for those on their lists, including mom and dad.  Parents are probably too polite to tell you if you buy them a lousy gift, so we'll help out with a list of gifts to avoid buying.

  • The "Your Appearance Needs Help" gift - Nose hair trimmers, ab glider, etc
  • Jobs Masquerading as Gifts - buying dad a tool he didn't ask for is really just buying more work to do.  Same goes for a household applicance for mom.
  • Perfume or Cologne - Since they're going to be living with the smell for months, if not years, mom and dad need to pick this out themselves
  • As Seen on TV - Resist the urge to order that Snuggie - Slapchop - Shoedini
