How To Subtly Drop Hints For Your Christmas Wishlist Without Being Too Obvious

7. Become Spontaneously Obsessed With Something
My friend Tom has recently become obsessed with decorative crystals. All month long he sends me screenshots of crystals he wants to buy but won’t because he’s a responsible adult and can’t drain his savings into the geo-rock movement. Hour after hour I get screen grabs of crystal bookends, geo coasters, glowing-rock lamps, and pretty crystal paper weights and knick-knacks.

Guess what I’m buying him for Christmas?

If you want the people around you to get the right kind of gift, send them example after example of a certain genre. They’ll be crazy not to follow your bread crumbs.
