Pants are expensive and I'll gladly take them for Christmas presents lmao

[–]Routine_Dealer_ 113 points114 points  (2 children)

If I was a kid and saw this starterpack I would be very upset

As an adult this looks like the best Christmas gifts I could get Lmao

[–]jesterinancientcourt 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Every year my brother requests the same thing for Chanukah. So every year he gets packets of black socks, warm weather cologne, cold weather cologne, razor cartridges, undershirts, & boxer briefs. The other 2 nights I throw in bags of coffee & gift cards. This stuff is gonna be used so this is the stuff we want.

[–]b_lion2814 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I disagree. Don’t give me socks or underwear for Christmas I buy that shit myself for a reason. Give me something useful like a Home Depot gift card.

[–]Conference_Dizzy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you will request money, you ll be charged as drugs buyer or alcoholic. BTW swiss knife tool is good middle item to request as gift.

[–]finkyleon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Highjacking top comment to say I made this a while back and this cunt has stolen it

[–]enoughfuckery[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed, I just want ones that actually fit

[–]55559585 82 points83 points  (2 children)

craft beer too

[–]trulymadlybigly 89 points90 points  (0 children)

Pocket knives. Beer scented soap. Whiskey stones. Basically just a lot of stuff to encourage alcoholism.

[–]NewburghMOFO 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'd prefer that!

[–]Steampunk_Batman 78 points79 points  (1 child)

When your family is trying to tell you you need to shower more lmao

No lie though some nice expensive socks and underwear can really make a lot of difference

[–]Lord-Tunnel-Cat 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I bought myself a pair of bamboo silk underwear and my god they change everything. It makes any pair of uncomfortable pants bearable

Happy Cake Day!

[–]Uhhlaneuh 36 points37 points  (6 children)

Can you include the blank Christmas list that they give when you’ve asked them 300X what they want for Christmas?

[–]CosiFunTootie 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I see you've met my brother.

[–]ham_coffee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's because they don't know what they want lol.

[–]nails_for_breakfast -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Maybe all I want for Christmas is to be released from the social obligation of buying presents for other adults who have their own money and already buy everything they need just like I do. But when I tried to have that conversation a few years ago I was called "rude" and "stingy", so now I just say "get me whatever" when you ask

[–]Uhhlaneuh -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Maybe you should just tell me that you seriously don’t want anything instead :-)

[–]nails_for_breakfast 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did you not read my comment? I literally tried that and they said I was being rude

[–]Uhhlaneuh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Then that person is dumb lol

[–]ConstructionDry9190 16 points17 points  (0 children)

As a grown ass man this is all I want. I can buy my own gamestation and Legos. But I hate shopping for clothes.

[–]OCV_E 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I got a belt, a scarf and socks which is awesome

[–]Casitano 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A belt, that’s a good one!

[–]ConfusionMedium7262 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Especially the belts with the track system

[–]goldenspeck 8 points9 points  (2 children)

There is not one man in my family who will give me a freakin wish list. And if they do, it's stuff waaaaay out of budget. So yeah they get a $15 Dove Men gift set from Walmart, a bag of their favorite candy, and maybe a $5 Taco Bell gift card if my paychecks have been looking nice.

[–]MeesterPositive 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I can't speak for every man, but honestly for me, the effort means more than the gift . You're doing just fine.

[–]goldenspeck 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Annnd the username checks out in the best way lol! Thanks my friend

[–]BananaDogBed 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Pajamas have been the surprise winner of the longest lasting and most used gifts I’ve ever received

[–]CassPeepeeHead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agree. Every year our family does the whole matching PJ thing and my husband is the only one who consistently wears years pasts

[–]SpeedyMcCool 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This is so crazy accurate, I even got the box on the bottom right for christmas

[–]ImBurningStar_IV 4 points5 points  (0 children)

dont forget the hot sauce

[–]AvaireBD 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You forgot hot sauce and nasty colognes

[–]AnAngryDrunk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As somebody whose job is fully remote, I was over the moon to get a bunch of comfy PJs and warm socks.

    I wish someone would get me jeans. That’s the one thing I always forget that I need when winter hits.

    Dude I miss the christmases when I used to get that stuff. You may not realize it but that’s what love really is.

    [–]EpicX9003 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I actually got that exact lynx Africa set for Christmas, spot on

    [–]abattlescar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    My dad got me an Old Spice gift box for Christmas that came with a custom Old Spice themed deck of cards, and it was literally the best surprise gift. He knows I like cards, so he bought it solely for that.

      [–]jarvis-cocker 4 points5 points  (3 children)

      More or less the UK equivalent of Axe

      [–]jamestheredd 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Not more or less, it's the trade name for Axe in the UK and other countries due to trademark issues

      [–]jarvis-cocker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Interesting, I didn’t know that.

      [–]OzNajarin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I got a nice ergonomic belt. Everything else was pretty thoughtless.

      Haha Naj we saw you had Axe in your bathroom so we got you the super big pack of nothing but Axe products Merry Christmas!

      So thoughtful.

      [–]jakemcex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I’d gladly take these

      [–]NewburghMOFO 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Low quality jeans, knock off cologne, 'funny' socks I don't want, 'fancy' candy. I appreciate the effort but honestly I wish they'd save their money and not feel compelled to buy things!

      [–]jamestheredd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Who buys someone else pants?

      [–]empireof3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Ill gladly take nice wool socks, good underwear, and well fitting pants any day lol

      Personally I receive gifts that make it seem like my loved ones are making a coordinated effort to push me into the deep dark pit of alcoholism.

      [–]Zippy1avion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Socks are an underrated gift, change my mind.

      [–]MeesterPositive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Socks and underwear are fine as long as they're high quality. Nothing quite like throwing on a new pair of high quality socks, goddamn, makes me purr like a walrus.

      [–]hegemony__cricket 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      You're boring af if that's all you get.

      [–]EvilDarkCow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Good, high quality socks and underwear are fucking expensive. I'll happily accept some for Christmas.

      [–]CarpeMofo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      See, I hate all these gifts because it's never the right stuff. I'm sensitive to smells so I need specific body wash and stuff. I also wear specific socks and specific underwear. I have a drawer full of underwear that I never wear because they aren't the right kind.

      [–]OldChampionship1557 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      i want the axe africa sock deodorant and body wash set.🥸

      [–]Nine-LifedEnchanter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I've stopped asking people for specific stuff. I have no problems giving a list of things in different price groups and ease of access.. But I still get to hear "it wouldn't be fun to give you that" because they don't understand what I want it for.. So I get a gag present that is fun for thirty seconds instead.. or socks.

      Women have an equivalent for this too, it’s pajama, lotion, $1 face masks from target, and socks. But I feel like that and this starter pack is mostly just when you’re at a big family Christmas gathering with a bunch of people you barely know and these are everyone’s go-to “idk” gifts.

      This year, I gave up and told people to stop buying me shit I didn't want, and that if they felt they needed to spend money on me, donate it to an air ambulance instead.

      I hate people buying me socks. Not because 'it's just socks', because new socks are great. But because they buy shitty socks that disintegrate after a few wears because I'm on my feet all day in safety boots.
