"What do you get for the person who has everything?" Something they didn't know they wanted. On the other side of that is, "What do you get the couple you just know isn't going to make it?" Last thing you want to do is get them something they can only use together which, once they inevitably split up, is useless. So, what do you buy?


Reddit user, u/Sedfvgt, wanted to know the best options when they asked:

What is a good wedding gift for a couple that won't last?

Leave Something For Them In Their (Future) Time Of Need

Something consumable, like fancy food and/or wine. If it isn't gone by the time they split, it will become a comforting thing to consume.

Leave Them With A Reminder

A nice salt and pepper shakers, either something that is sentimental (e.g. they honeymooned in Hawaii and the S&P set is made by a local artist), or just from the fancy set of dishes they put in the register. A strongly mediocre gift that won't set you back much, but shows you put in some effort.

Plus when they divorce, they can split the set up as a morbid reminder of love lost

A Gift With Multiple Uses

A friend of ours gave us a huge mason jar with a healthy cash gift inside--all in change. There was a note that explained we were to keep the jar and every day empty our loose change out of our pockets into the jar. Then, every year on our anniversary, we were to go blow it on something we wouldn't normally get for ourselves (like a fancy dinner).

Now, being the practical sort, we actually wait for the five-years and use it to put toward something we need or want for the house (like when we upgraded to a riding mower), but your couple can use it to pay for the attorney when the time comes.

Maybe There's Something To This Towel Thing

Towels, you can't go wrong with towels. Everyone uses towels.

Tbh it's a neutral gift and should be given with the best of intentions. Even marriages where we thought it would last, did not. So, give it with a good heart.

Put Their Name On It

His and Hers matching towels. No arguments regarding ownership once the divorce rolls around.

Don't Buy It For Both Of Them, Just One

Just buy something for whichever of the two people you actually like.

Odds are if they are a bad match you don't like them both.

You Won't Need Them Now, But Soon....

We bought my brother in law (total jerk) and his cheating lying manipulative choice of wife a cheap set of shot glasses (looked nice but cheap) figured he'd need them to drown his sorrows at some point...

Feed Them In The Short Run

Tupperware with pre-made meals in them. Tupperware isn't too expensive, and neither is preparing meals that can stay in the freezer, like homemade spaghetti sauce or something. But it's nice for a couple who just got married to not have to cook for a week while they are moving in. And it's not like it's something they'll fight over when they get divorced.

Sinister, But Genius

Luggage. Say it's for their honeymoon. But it'll be far more useful when they split, and one of them has to move out.

Nailed It

Birth control.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
