Xmas Shade Throwing

By Victoria Pavlova

When even your present needs to throw some shade.

December madness is in full swing now and there's one particularly terrifying holiday tradition looming: present shopping. Do. Not. Want. 

Even if you do somehow emerge victorious from the pile of pink earmuffs and electric toothbrushes that play Ariana Grande's "Focus" on repeat, there will always be a special group of people you save till last - the frenemies.

What do you get the person who has everything, except your love? PopBuzz has some ideas.

1. This Man Candle (petrol scented).

Nothing says a subtle "f*** you" like the smell of a gas station, gently punching them in the nose every time they inhale. They'll surely remember you for years to come. 

2. This totes recognisable Brendon Urie T-Shirt.

Watch their face go from feigned surprise, to utter confusion, to barely suppressed disappointment in just three seconds. 

3. 12 bottles of your homemade almond milk.

For when you want to say "I put in some real f***ing effort into disappointing you this year."

4. Framed art of their OTP (hand drawn by you, natch).

Make sure they open it in front of the whole family and watch them try to explain their excitement over a couple of floppy-haired British dudes.

5. Variety pack of sugar-free liquorice.

Everybody's Nan's fave, now with even less fun.

6. Their own DIY #glitterroots kit.

Give them the gift of sparkly dandruff this Christmas (and every day for, like, a week after when they can't get that stuff out.)

7. A voucher for a free hug.

Caution: you may need to get within touching distance of this person.

8. This amazing/awful Xmas jumper.

I mean, you could argue that this is actually the perfect present for everyone on your list, but we're adding it for the lolz.

9. A mixtape of your acapella rendition of the John Cena theme.
