"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

Giphy

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.

Exaggeration17A

Nailed It

Birth control.

Seriously.

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
