‘Tis the season for frantically searching for presents for the food lovers lucky enough to be on your nice list this year. And while there are all kinds of gift-giving guides out there, keep in mind not everyone shares the same idea of a nice gift. So to help you with your shopping, here’s a list of food gifts to avoid giving this year.
Christmas Candy Cane Thong - This one’s for the fellas because it’s just a big candy cane hanging down in the front and a G-string in the back. Even as a gag gift, it’s just too much.
Cannabis Christmas Calendar - Marijuana isn’t legal in every state yet, but this adult version of an advent calendar filled with pot and edibles doesn’t care.
Exotic Jerky Cane - Man Crates sends gifts to guys in manly boxes and the Ron Swanson-types on your list might like a “baconology kit” from there, but we’re not sure about this candy cane filled with 10 different kinds of “Meaty Delights.”
French Fries Rainbow Clutch Bag - Some fancy foodie on your gift list might love this Judith Leiber crystal-covered clutch purse shaped like french fries in a carton with a rainbow on it, but it’s probably over budget at $5,695.
Anything with “funny” food slogans on it - No one really wants this “I lift … donuts to my face” pillow or an “Ice cream is cheaper than therapy” T-shirt. No one.
A Three-in-one avocado slicer - Millennials love their avocados, but a knife is way easier to clean.
Tortilla baby - Babies are totally cute on their own and your friends with a newborn probably won’t appreciate this swaddle blanket and cap that looks exactly like a tortilla and makes baby look like a burrito all wrapped up and ready to eat.
Macaron soap - You know what macaron lovers will like better than this soap that just looks like their favorite tasty treats? Actual macarons they can eat.
Eggnog Protein Shakes - Even the loved ones who don’t let the holidays stop them from hitting those gains don’t want to unwrap a container of this stuff. Ho Ho Horrible.
