A Lump of Coal
- The cause for concern: So you're telling your loved one they've been extra naughty this year with a lump of coal glycerin soap ($6)? Shame on you.
- What to give instead: OK, so this one's actually not that bad, especially if the giftee has a sense of humor. But if you really want to make a play on words, a luxe kohl eyeliner kit, like Laura Mercier's Mini Kohl Eye Pencil Set ($32), should suit your friend just fine.
