14 Ways To Tell If You Received A Gift From A Procrastinator

We've all received gifts that made us say "You shouldn't have. You really, really shouldn't have." But if YOU'RE the procrastinator, you can still give a gift your friends will want to receive: an instant e-gift card from LOFT!

You're not even sure THEY know what's in the box they're giving you.

2. You received either a gift card purchased at the pharmacy on the corner...

5. Even the card on your gift was recycled from a previous holiday.

6. You received something that's new but was clearly the last one on the rack because it's kinda ratty.

And it's still wrapped in YOUR wrapping paper.

8. Your "gift" is a Christmas decoration that might have come from the person's tree.

13. The tag is still on the gift because they were in too much of a hurry to cut it off.

And it was purchased during a last-minute gift sale.
