Have you ever wondered if your gifts reveal a passive-aggressive nature?Christmas is all about giving and receiving, and nobody likes to grumble, or seem unappreciative.

1.Multi-Packs Of Mints
Have you ever eagerly unravelled a present to find yourself clutching a multi-pack of mints and a slightly mixed bag of annoyance and self-consciousness? This gift is the epitome passive-aggression. Even if your BF’s breath stinks – Don’t Do It.
2.The Christmas Jumper
Who waits for Christmas day to arrive to give their relative a reindeer jumper? You only have, at best, 9 hours to wear it, and then it’s not even good for a charity shop!
3.An Oversized Skirt
So, if you were wondering whether your mother-in-law really likes you, and you receive a skirt so big you could put 3 of your Aunt Mary’s in it – you’ve finally got your answer.
On the face of it this doesn’t seem like too bad a present. However, if it’s from your fella, you only love Rock, and you open it to discover One Direction staring back at you, there may be an uncomfortable silence to follow. Knowing your other half’s music taste is a given, so getting this present reveals a definite lack of thought, and is most certainly an act of passive-aggression. (The other possibility is that he’s getting you confused with someone else – grrr).
