Dear Blake,

This Christmas I am on a tight budget. I still want to give people I care about gifts but my finances clearly limit my options. Got any ideas?

Dear Ruth,

It’s good to see that you have the Christmas spirit. Keep in mind, as long as you give someone a gift, that’s all that really counts, no matter how insulted they may feel at how little you spent on them. If you have a very attractive female friend, buy her a packet of florescent permanent magic markers that she can use for make-up. If she’s sick and tired of men constantly hitting on her, she will appreciate it when they back off due to how creepy she’ll look, especially at night. If you have a teenage son or nephew who’s hormones are in overdrive, give him a framed copy of the laws regarding child support, including the incarceration statutes of dead beat dads. And one last idea that will cost you very little. Do you have a lazy friend or relative that has no desire to seek employment? Purchase for them a 24 x 36 piece of cardboard that they’ll eventually need when they stand on street corners begging for money and food. And to show your compassionate side, also include a list of choice spots where people are the most generous to these raggedy, whiskey-smelling derelicts. I hope this helps.

Blake
