This post has been updated for 2019.
Let me start by saying that of all the posts I’ve ever done here at TME, this might be my fav. There’s a deep sarcastic streak in me that maybe only my brothers and husband and parents recognize, but it’s strong and needs to be fed with slightly harsh, humorous fun. Maybe you have one of those special people in your life, too. Well, you’re welcome. Here are some perfect gifts for them.

2. I’m Silently Correcting Your Grammar Keychain // You know who to give this to…that friend who constantly posts angry spelling frustrations on Facebook. I actually got my mom a mug with this on it for Christmas. Love you, mom! (See how I used a comma there correctly…)
3. Funny Gift Tags // Need a last-minute funny touch for your host gift? Smack these downloadable printouts on anything to add your flair. Included remarks: “Get Your Fake Smile Ready” and “Spoiler Alert: Not A Pony.”
