The gift lifter

All those perfectly good canned hams, 1-pound chocolate bells and vacuum-packs of smoked salmon were just lying around unopened at the office holiday party while everyone drained the open bar. Why, these fine products surely deserve a better fate!

The decent thing to do, reasons the Gift Lifter, is to simply slip a few under his or her winter coat on the way out, take them home, arrange them in a nice basket with some decorative tissue and give them to the Kellys on Saturday night.

The warning signs that your gift has been lifted:

  • It's portable and easily concealed.
  • It's available at the local discount warehouse.
  • You were on the committee that ordered it for the office party.
