My top 5 passive-aggressive gifts to give this festive season

by Karisa

A random browse through a Lovisa store recently sparked an idea for a “what to buy” list for that special “frenemy” in your life…

For those not familiar with the term, a frenemy is “a person with whom one is friendly despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry”.  (there’s always that one, isn’t there…)

Right, so let’s start with number 5:  The snake ring

This gift says you remind me of a shady, cold-blooded, limbless reptilic creature.  So I got you this…

At number 4:  Broken hearted “best friends”

The key to this one is of course to give the person both pieces…

At number 3:  Make your own statement

I mean let’s be honest, this one opens you up to a whole world of possibilities.  Maybe a certain 4 letter word that comes to mind, a descriptive noun, or a particularly punchy phrase.  Simply let your creativity flow…

At number 2: Wait, what did you call me?

Oh yes, some innocent Xmas cheer… or is it??? *insert evil laugh here*

And then my number 1 passive-aggressive gift to give this festive season:  Karma is a b!tch

Nothing better than a inspirational quote they say…


So there you have it folks.  Your frenemies are sorted.

I have to say a special thank you to Darryn van der Walt who initiated this concept when he first spotted the watch. This was hands down the most fun I’ve ever had in a Lovisa store (and I would also like to think this ended up being a very helpful post to all of you out there who were struggling to get your message across).

You’re welcome. 😉
