Pick UR Gift Turns the Incredibly Stress-Filled World of Gift Giving On its Ribbony Head

This post is brought to you by the seriously super nice guys at PickURGift on behalf of the seriously super nice gals at Brandfluential.  While I was compensated with product for this post, all opinions and eye-rolling jokes are solely my own. As my dad used to say, "You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose." I never quite understood why he regularly shared that life lesson with me, but I guess it worked because I've yet to pick a friend's nose. What I have picked, however, are gifts.

Well, even those kids in the Final Destination films know that the Grim Reaper will eventually come for you.

10 Things I Would Never Even Think About Doing Without Having Life Insurance First

Humans are pretty stupid. No, no, it's true. We're constantly trying to outwit danger at every corner. Viruses. Natural disasters. Lions, tigers, and bears. You get the picture. As a species, we're always pressing onward, overcoming great obstacles to keep the race alive. So with a fairly decent track record (we're still here, aren't we?), what do us humans like to do in our spare time? Attempt crazy, death-defying feats, that's what. I'm not talking about the lunatics who try to walk across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope or go down Niagara Falls in a barrel. Those guys are in a totally different class. No, I'm talking about just your average, ...
