Gifts For Broke Bitches

I am hilariously broke! You, too? Great! We can still give each other wonderful holiday gifts.

You know what I would love? If someone showed up and cleaned my apartment. No, seriously. Wouldn’t that be the best gift ever? In this economy, the greatest gift we can give each other is the gift of convenience.

A spa certificate or basket from Bath & Body Works sure would be lovely, but there’s a cheaper way to give your best bitch some beauty treatment. Try Diet Cherry 7UP! Look, it says “Antioxidant” on the label, so it has to be good for you!

You buy 100 bobby pins. Three days later, you can only find three, two of which are on the floor. How does this happen? Same thing with hair ties/elastics, right? Time to step up to BFF status and buy your gal a basket of hair things that girls lose.

If only I had more Bobby pins, I'd get that raise for sure! And then I'd spend it on crack.

Bobby pins are available at any drugstore or 99 cent store, but if you want to feel fancy, you can buy a pack of them for $1 at Forever 21. Or if you want to be hilariously impractical, you can order them online here. I’m sure that Claire’s has a wonderful assortment of delightful hair bands of all colors of all rainbows, even colors we can’t even see with human eyes.

“Wow, Almie,” you’re probably saying if you’re reading this far, “You’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel here, aren’t you?” You bet your sweet bippy I am. How about a gift that costs you zero dollars? Sounds like a magical mystery tour, doesn’t it? I have the gift for you. It will take you some time to make, but it’s worth it. Find old clips and photos of you and your BFF and get on iMovie and make an adorable little video! You can go cheesy with it and set it to Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend” or go really weird with it and set it to Lana Del Rey’s cover of “Blue Velvet” — I’m not going to judge, your friend isn’t going to judge and this guy Darryl here isn’t going to judge.

"Yep, I'm cool with it."

 

If you have $20, spend $10 of it on a Starbucks card and wrap it in a slice of pizza.

Oh whatever, George Harrison, don't even look at me like that. You don't even know. Okay?
