.......the man who played the "I am a feminist" card and who she fell for like a ton of bricks before he turned out to be a arsehole?

They are in the same circle of friends, and she is mostly over him so she can be amused at having picked his name out of the hat. But she doesn't want to waste the opportunity.

She is 19 - he's 22

Or a nice T shirt?

Or if she doesn't want to spend much on him, fart pants?

Does she want something that is not outwardly hostile but makes her laugh?

BertrandRussell Fri 04-Dec-15 10:24:16

Yes- she doesn't want to give him a crap present because that will look as if she's bitter. But something that makes a point while also being a good present. The Rude Hand Gestures book looks good- I know someone it would be perfect for!

Another Tshirt suggestion

How about a beard maintenance kit? These pua desperadoes often have an elaborate beard arrangement.

Like a really cheap fedora as a gift.

Donate the money to the WEP and print out a certificate, like this one:

(It says something along the lines of "I donated X amount of money to the Feminist Party, Merry Christmas to you and all feminists.")

As he is a feminist, that must be something he'll really, really like ... right?

Quite like the wanker and toxic t-shirts.

If I had the money to spare, I can think of a couple of men I'd love to send them to.

Could she maybe adopt a warthog for him?

MyNameIsInigoMontoya Fri 04-Dec-15 14:11:14

Hamper of fancy cleaning products/tools, all wrapped up prettily?

VestalVirgin Fri 04-Dec-15 14:38:17

@Plays: You mean the kind of thing where you pay a sum of money to a zoo and get to name one of their animals? (I wouldn't actually give an animal to an asshole. Just not fair, poor animal)

BertrandRussell Fri 04-Dec-15 14:41:29

Thank you all- she and I have had such a lovely time this morning looking at all of these! She's still deciding, but will definitely choose one of them. I just adore the "adopt a warthog" idea, but I suspect it might be too expensive................

Cheesybaps Fri 04-Dec-15 14:43:40

How about..... this?

BertrandRussell Fri 04-Dec-15 14:54:57

It costs £40 to adopt a warthog sad

Cheesy- you won't believe this but the bullshit button is a significant part of our family life.......grin

VestalVirgin Fri 04-Dec-15 14:58:53

@Bertrand: Maybe a desert mole rat would be cheaper?

BertrandRussell Fri 04-Dec-15 15:12:18

grin@Vestalvergin. I was just coming back to say that I was just talking timber dad a out it and he suggested adopting a termite. Just the one.

BertrandRussell Fri 04-Dec-15 15:13:37

"talking to her dad about it" obviously!

Elendon Fri 04-Dec-15 17:58:15

How about these

With a copy of Valerie Solanna's Scum Manifesto inside

QueenStromba Fri 04-Dec-15 18:27:09

If he's a feminist then surely he'd like a book by Andrea Dworkin or similar?

IndominusRex Fri 04-Dec-15 18:44:08

An asshat. A hat that is an ass.
This must exist surely? If not I think I've found my £1m idea.
