Aunty Anne gave you ANOTHER bottle of that perfume you loved at 14 but can’t stand now you’re 34? Other half got the Chanel bit right but got you No. 5 instead of Eau Premiere? Big sis bought you the Soap & Glory set you also bought for yourself?
Sometimes getting something that’s almost right but just not you is nearly worse than the crap pressie. I mean novelty jumpers you can wear, for the craic, obvs. Tacky crap? You can easily donate that to the charity shop in January. But good stuff? Lovely things that someone paid hard earned cash for? They sit in the drawer haunting you. Every time you take out a clean pair of knickers, that bottle of perfume will be there, like the creepy polar bear, reminding you of what an awful person you are not to be grateful.
Who ya gonna call? Swap Siopa!
