Presents for the most ungrateful people ever....help?

I’ve got to get my brothers Christmas presents. And I’m stuck.
They are the most ungrateful, entitled people I’ve ever met. They only buy themselves top designer stuff and would turn their nose up at anything high street.
I actually really don’t particularly want to get them anything, knowing they’ll just toss it aside whatever it may be, however I do have to.

Please could I have any ideas of gifts that don’t cost the earth but could be suitable for utter brand snobs?

A packet of Haribos.

Posh chocs?
Magazine subscription?

You really don't have to buy them anything.

I have relatives like this - I buy them an expensive (well to me anyway) bottle of wine for about £20. It requires no thought or effort on my part and will get drunk.

Oxfam unwrapped have a half price sale at the moment. You can buy a pig for £11.50 . I think I'll do that myself !

Charity gift? Loo twinning? These types of people are the reason giving goats has become so popular, I believe grin

quackquackfuckoff Sat 16-Dec-17 13:25:28

I wouldn't bother buying them anything!!

Charity gift, or a bottle of alcohol.

What's your budget OP?
Buy something over priced expensive but within your budget. So, for instance, spend £20 on 4 very posh chocolates even though you'd get a huge box of Thornton for the same price. You might feel mean giving them 4 chocs but if they are brand snobs they'll appreciate them more than a big box of cheaper ones. It's a fictional example obviously grin

Retro sweets. The sort of thing they would have eaten when they were younger.

Casablanca78 Sat 16-Dec-17 14:05:02

If they like brands then maybe TK Max for a pair of branded socks or boxers? They do Calvin Klein, Versace, Ralph Lauren etc.

A beautifully gift wrapped bottle of V.I.POO.

Anything you like. They won't like what you buy. You can't change that part. You can change how much of your time and effort is wasted though.

Set a budget, wander into any old shop and buy the first thing on budget that's not totally shit.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Dec-17 15:19:03

Don't overthink it. Set a budget, and then buy a bottle of booze and something edible to go with it. End of.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 16-Dec-17 15:19:31

Or if they are not quite as unintelligent as they sound, a book each.

Goshthatwentwell Sat 16-Dec-17 15:48:19

I'd go to the charity shop and buy them something quirky. They get something unusual and if they hate it your money has gone to a goid cause.

Tinselistacky Sat 16-Dec-17 15:54:44

Christmas tie and a bottle.

OldJoseph Sat 16-Dec-17 16:01:14

Assuming they are adults then a bottle of wine.

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Sat 16-Dec-17 16:03:25

Something by George Orwell and a chocolate orange.

Taffeta Sat 16-Dec-17 16:10:43

A Grid It

Or one of these

Placemarking as I need a small gift for a very fussy, abit snobby, friend!!

Buy a nice mason jar from a homewear shop then fill it with a few bags Aldi or Lidl salted caramel fudge. Dress it up with a bit of ribbon and tie a luggage tag with Handmade (posh description) fudge written on it and tell them you got it delivered from a boutique confectioners. Tell them how you had to order it in August because their order books get filled up by September and the Kardashian's only buy their fudge from them. 😉😂
