    Evil stepmom gift ideas?
    I'll keep it simple : I hate my stepmom. My stepmom hates me. I am expected o get her a christmas gift (against my will). What do you give someone that you hate?

    OOps, I just realized you probably live with here as well as your father and other siblings.

    I'll think about this again.

    As much as I understand you would love to give her a gag gift or something else equally or more horrible, I wouldn't suggest using a present as a "revenge".

    Candles are good, sans the intention of burning down the house. Gift cards are nice too if you know where she shops.

    I would probably get her a scarf and gloves that matches her coat if she doesn't already have them. See? You've completed her outfit, and you're keeping her warm. How thoughtful of you, and you didn't even have to think about it.

    Although, if you want more suggestions, what is your budget range for the gift you are "expected" to give her?

    ... and my mind wanders off to think, obligatory gifts are oxymoronic and pathetic, aren't they? THE reason why I dislike Christmas.

    Get her a cheese log... a tin of hard candy. Not many people would like that kind of impersonal cheap gift.

    You could give her a fruitcake. No one likes fruitcakes, but if she's really hungry she'll have something to eat :)

    If she's such a witch, she might like a broom.

    If I don't like someone, I enjoy giving them soap. It always makes me feel better. Get her a soap basket.

    Another option is a photo album with pictures of the family. Just make sure she's not in them. Also, if you can, make sure your mom is.

    You could also give her a large, framed picture of yourself.

    Or your halloween candy. An ant farm. Hair dye. Granny panties. Clothing that's much too small. Clothing that's much too big. Used shoes. Something she already owns. Men's socks. Diet pills. A cookbook. A vacuum. A mop. A toaster. Acne treatments. A roll of stamps. A piggy bank. Tampons. Dog food. A baby mouse. Stiletto heels. A can of flavored popcorn. A pumice stone. A book on divorce. A date with another man.

    If we're being serious, I liked the scarf and gloves idea.

    I have a step mother as of this year. I hadn't even thought of getting her a gift! Now I'll need my own thread. :(

    (hippopotamus, please don't use the positive/negative ratings unless you're dealing with something that is factually incorrect or is truly bad advice. I don't think posts said in humor or with good intentions in this thread really should not be rated negatively like that; please refer to the site's rules if you have any questions.)

    I really have to thank you for this thread. I've been giggling and brainstorming about it all day. I'm sure this will last me through christmas. I have another gift idea. Get her a snake. Maybe it will bite her. A tarantula could also work wonders. And I always thought I was nice... :(

    What about giving her a framed picture of the two of you?

    In all seriousness, maybe you could actually use this opportunity to repair some of your relationship, and get her something really nice. If she was expecting something useless from you, you might surprise her pleasantly enough that she'll start looking at you differently.

    It might do a lot for your time together.

    Whether you like it or not, it looks like she's there to stay. Be nice to her. She won't have any excuse to treat you poorly.

    Be good! :)

    Promise to let us know what you decide to do and how it goes!

    How old are you? I have read some of your other "advice" and am beginning to question both your advice and your age.

    Loving your mom has nothing to do with your relationship with your stepmother - they are not mutually exclusive relationships. Caring about a stepmother is not an insult to your mother.

    And, yes, I'm a stepmother and trust me - it's not easy being a stepmother when "his" children see you as the enemy. I've been very lucky but I've seen it happen. Does making your father miserable because you are insulting to his wife make you feel better?

    Get her something beautiful that you know that she will love. Raise the vibrations and pass on love to people that are evil. It will help heal you.

    I could suggest a bunch of snarky rude gifts (it is fun after all) like one-way bus tickets, but maybe, just maybe it would be nice to actually think of something she would enjoy. A CD of a performer she likes, something related to a hobby she enjoys, a book she would like (which has no hidden nasty undertones in the title or subject matter).

    I think the bigger question than what to get her for a gift is what to do about the fact that you don't get along. Some people on here might have some good insight for you on that if you want to think about it...

    I think you should give her a broom so she can have some sort of transportation.

    Love your advice usually BUT (isn't there always a "but") you are taking the word of a child here. Note that this child posted the question well over a year ago. I'm sure he/she has worked out a gift in the meantime.

    (Can you tell I'm a stepmother? Yes, we're all evil because with us in the picture mom and dad will NEVER reconcile. I've been very, very lucky but children are tough to raise. Stepchildren raise the bar.)
