It''s pretty simple, if you really hate someone and not giving them a gift doesn't represent how much you hate them you should give them a negative gift, in the spirt of the christmas omni-prison.

A negative gift could be something like a punch in the arm to a flat tire. but you have to make it christmas-y.

       A festive chocolate-covered hand-grenade? A tratitional globe-shaped tree ornament containing a neutron bomb? Arsenic-laced brandy butter?

       Is coal too fancy?

       Just steal something from them.
lostdog, Dec 16 2003
  

       Funny [lostdog]. To make it "christmas-y" you should steal a present they have already been given.
dobtabulous, Dec 16 2003
  

       Hmmm. Sounds mean. (-). How 'bout if you spend the time/money on a more charitable venture. "Hate" and "Christmas" don't belong in the same sentence, really.

       Why don't we have any (un)holidays devoted to un-giving? Strange.

       What about April Fools Day?

       This is in the evil category for a reason.....

       What if you're not Christain and you are bombarded for more than a month every year my a foreign religion.
SystemAdmin, Dec 16 2003
  

       Well, then what about all of us athiests that don't choose to complain about the holiday bombardment? I might not be a religous kinda guy, but its not killing me to see that ... and I'm sure other religions, not just Christianity does this, however at other times of the year ...

       a croissant for you... oh no, hang on.. a bone for you.

       I think thatgetting a present from someone I KNOW doesn't like me/hates me would be more hurtful (guilt can hurt more than a festive chocolate-covered hand-grenade).

       Resistance is futile.

       An empty box. Inside an empty box. inside an empty box... (repeat ad-nauseum); reverse the shipping charges.
RayfordSteele, Dec 17 2003
  

       A jack-in-the-box which, when it opens, is a boxing glove which punches you in the nose.

       Giving batteries but no toy might not be nasty enough, maybe?
kropotkin, Dec 17 2003
  

       [morrison] That's from "Deep Thoughts", by Jack Handey.
phundug, Feb 06 2004
  

       The meanest give I can think of would be a metal vibrator that has a large capacitor connected. Set to discharge like a stun gun. Of course, hating someone enough to give them this, yet having them like me enough to accept and use the gift seems very unlikely. I think I'll continue putting coal in the stockings of the bad people.

       Like negative gift certificates?
