Old Master Q's Holiday Gift Guide

December 24, 2017, by Ginger Wong

This holiday season, let's take a look at the type of gifts you'd expect to receive if you lived in Old Master Q's world.

A. Gifts to Avoid

1) The classic Jack-in-the-Box gift

Whether you're on his naughty list or not, this is one of OMQ's favorite gifts to give away, especially to unsuspecting ladies.

2) Gifts for your Ex

On the same note, OMQ can tell from a mile away which girl is just dating him for his generous gifts. They get a punch in the face!

3) Gifts from Mr. Chao

Avoid these at all costs! Never trust anything you receive from Mr. Chao! ..or just be very prepared for the consequences.

4) The gift that keeps on giving

That fruitcake you gave away (or whatever it is), may go around the block and eventually make its way back to you!

5) Random gifts from Santa

If Santa just stops by your house and gives you a random gift, they could be just some self-promotional marketing material that he's trying to pawn off of you. Set low expectations.

6) Random Found Gifts

There's a reason why these presents have been abandoned in the middle of the street. Could turn out to be a box of shi*t!

Beware of abandoned gifts..

7) Stocking Stuffers

Even Santa knows that stockings are for feet!

B. Actual Thoughtful Gifts

Not all gifts in the OMQ-verse are terrible. Here are some great examples of kindness and generousity.

1) Something different for a change

Tired of all the expensive options out there? Consider a puppy who needs some love 😊

You don't need anything from anyone! Craft your own gift of love.
