Are you being bombarded with Christmas shopping deals / ideas yet? Maybe you need more time to think about what to get your friends and family? It’s often a good start to look at what NOT to do, so I hope my TOP 3 tips help you sort out that particular dilemma.
First of all, the obvious..

Science is good but encouraging nuclear explosions in your living room? I don’t think so! More pictures and information can be found on the ‘Museum Crush’ website
My German readers may remember the TV-sketch by the fabulous Loriot – “Christmas at Hoppenstedts” where the Grandfather does buy a set of ‘We’re building a nuclear power station’ – it even comes with houses, trees and cows which can fall over if ‘one makes a mistake in setting in up’. I haven’t found a clip with English subtitles – so here’s ‘just’ a link in case you’re interested: https://youtu.be/MpEYKv6mGNI
So these are my top 3 of ‘NOT’-presents. What do you think? Have you come across other No-No’s? Please do share!
