Everyone’s been there. It’s Christmas morning, you’re on your way to Aunt Kathy’s and someone tells you that your cousins from Florida are coming down for a Christmas surprise! Uh oh. Now you’re half way to Kathy’s with no gifts for the cousins who came all this way. You pull over to the closest Gas Station and pursue the shelves for *something*. Well, Fred and Mel have some great suggestions for those last minute gift ideas.
1. Starship Troopers DVD
This is perfect for that weird uncle or intensely sci-fi obsessed cousin.
2. Wild Things DVD
And now a movie for the ladies. Cause ladies love watching other ladies right?
3. Cherry Lip Balm
You can never have enough lip balm.
4. Beef Jerky Teriyaki Flavour
And we’re not kidding – it HAS to be teriyaki!
5. Lottery tickets
This kind of gift is perfect for the father-in-law who you don’t know at all. It’s fun for about 10 minutes and who knows – maybe they’ll even win something!
8. Christmas Candy
Come Christmas day there is bound to be a pile for discounted Christmas candy lining the aisle of Gas Stations. Grab a few of the most expensive ones (now discounted to bargain basement prices) and you’ll look like you spent a mint!
9. A Nudie Magazine
If you’re one of the families who does an anonymous gift exchange, a funny gift to buy for this is one of those nudie magazines. You know the ones. The ones with black cardboard on top of the cover so you can’t see what’s underneath! WARNING – only do this if you know there will not be children involved. You don’t want to scar anyone for life.
10. Emergency Car Kit
Canadian winter’s are tough on drivers and their cars. Get your family members an emergency car kit complete with an ice scraper, flashlight, granola bar, gloves and even maybe some extra anti-freeze.
