Practical gift ideas for telling your son it’s time to move out
Christmas is a great time to show your loved ones that you care with great presents. But it can also be a good time to show your loved ones they’re long overdue for moving out of your house.
As much as you love them, you know it’s time. And you just want your damn life back.
This Christmas, consider these practical gift ideas that send the message to your son that it’s time for him to move out.
No one needs a blender if they live in a house that actually has one. This Nutri Ninja Pro blender will make your son say, “But don’t we already have a blender?” then pause for a minute, then say, “Oh.”
Plus, it’s a really nice blender.
Some nice wine glasses say, “These are for you when your friends come over to your house and you hang out.” The message will probably only be received if you give your son this 12 pack of wine glasses, though.
The movie “Get Out” on Blu-Ray
Giving your son the movie Get Out is a slightly more blunt way to tell him to leave your house and carry on with adulthood. This will work even better if you already own Get Out.
Wrap empty boxes for him to use so he can move
Actual presents would be useless when it’s better to fit the things in that he already has in his room.
An answering machine filled with voicemails from a man saying he can only come to fix the hot water next week
This gift idea is more abstract. Filling the answering machine with voicemails from a man alludes to a super, which alludes to your son living in an apartment and not your house. The desired result is that he will panic and think he has to respond to this fake super, realize he doesn’t live in an apartment and not your house, and learn a little bit more about himself, and the real estate market far away from your neighborhood, along the way.
Rent a U-Haul filled with all of his presents to open
That way he’s already halfway there!
We hope these gift ideas encourage your son to realize that you no longer want him living in your house.
