“Around two years ago, a friend got me a gym membership voucher with a free consultation with a nutritionist and an online diet plan. They were in one of those gift boxes and it had "determination" quotes written all over it. I was already registered at a gym. And although I used to complain about my weight, it was honestly just kind of obnoxious.”
– Nadine, 25.

“When I was five-years-old, a friend of mine got me a Barbie. The next day she informed me that her parents said I had to pay 10,000 LL for it. I ended up making partial payments to them for a week. That was the worst gift.”
– Suzan, 25.

“A Furby. And I wasn’t a child. Enough said.”
– Dina, 25.

“My mom went abroad and came back just in time for Christmas. She bought my sister all these nice beauty products, creams, and clothes; then she hands me my gift and it’s this ‘Fat Girl Slim’ collection of lotions for all my trouble cellulite spots. It was actually really funny.”

– Nour, 26.

“A dictionary for girls that is all about getting your period and stuff… super embarrassing!”

“My ex gave me socks for Christmas. Not joking.”
