Outrageous Gifts to Ask Your Parents

More stories from Hannah Barham


Ah, Christmas. Everyone loves Christmas. Between the Christmas trees, the parades, the Christmas movies, everything. But the biggest thing about Christmas is the gifts. We spent all year planning out our Christmas wish list, and if you are still young and living with your parents, you give your parents that list. Sometimes you can ask for the usual, such as clothes, a book, maybe some AirPods, a video game, etc. But sometimes you can ask for the most outrageous things, and it’ll give your parents a heart attack. Let’s go ahead and take a look at the list of outrageous things to ask your parents for the holiday season!

A Seal

Seals are pretty cute. They’re chubby, and they’re full of love. But asking your parents for one for Christmas? Big nono. But seals are still extremely cute and you can always ask for a seal plush! Besides, I have no idea how your parents would manage to get a seal and keep it in a box.

The lamp from A Christmas Story

Okay, while this is a classic Christmas story with notable humor, literally why would you ask your parents for a lamp of a woman’s leg. I don’t know about you, but my parents would look at me as if I had two heads. So yeah, good reference to a holiday classic, but don’t ask for it for Christmas unless you want to be heavily judged.

A garbage can

A modernized version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

Hear me out, okay? Classic Shakespeare.. A tale about a fifteen-year-old girl loving a nearly twenty-year-old man. The love story of the century, am I right? Get you a man who will love you so much he will kill himself if he thinks you’re dead. 


Literally why.

The DVD edition of Straight Outta Compton

Now no hate for this movie. At all. But for Christmas, maybe settle for something else instead of a DVD version of this movie, okay? No hate on the movie though, it’s a good movie.


I’m about to be real with you. The chances of you getting a PS5 are lower than my self-esteem, so that’s like hitting the ocean floor. The PS5 practically broke the video game community, so if you have this on your list, you can kiss that dream goodbye. 

MTV’s Dan Cortese

Look, I understand that you need friends, but really? Dan Cortese?

Those weird toe socks


Nose Flute

Okay if you ask your parents for this, then I am concerned for you. Please get out of the house once in a while and go socialize. You sound like you need it.

That concludes this list! As you look over your Christmas wish list, please keep these into consideration to spare your parents the embarrasment of these items being on their bank statements. Have a Merry Christmas!!
