With Christmas party ideas now being discussed, we know people are busy booking their Vodka-filled festive events. Luckily for you, this means you’ll have more invites than presents from your family.
Picking one to attend probably won’t involve an “ip, dip, do” situation but if you need to decline, don’t come across as a boring sloth.
1. Treat them with a gift
Nothing says “I can buy your affection” like a trip down to your local Revolution where you can tantalise your tastebuds with our handcrafted vodka flavours.
You don’t want to be known as the sell-out that never showed up. So supply your friends with a pre-Christmas treat that will allow them to forgive your absence.
2. Be damn sarcastic
If you’re really stuck on excuses, you could send them a picture of Jeremy Kyle and then a message saying: “I have the results through from your RSVP invite to your Christmas party… and I can reveal that I am NOT going to attend.”
Then sprinkle it with an apology and wish them a good time. We’re pretty sure it’ll make them laugh enough to not feel bitter about it.
3. Make your own mini event
What if your pal is hosting a Christmas party the same night as your work’s do? Sometimes, you won’t be able to attend a party even if you really want to. Gather up your best folks for another night out on the town and invite them to make up for it.
4. Make up an elaborate, yet hilarious lie
What if you’ve left it a little too late? If you’re not good at lying, you share the same problem as one of the best TV characters ever. You could always play homage to Joey from Friends and tell the host about your sister’s crazy racoon creating havoc in your home. The more ridiculous, the better.
5. Or, just be honest about it
Last but not least, like our parents always said: “Honesty is the best policy”. If you can’t go, just tell them why. If you’re too busy over Christmas, they’ll understand. Make sure you let them know ASAP so it doesn’t look like a lame excuse.
