How To Not React Badly To Horrible Gifts

Everyone has those creative people in their lives that just can’t give good gifts. No matter who you are, sometimes your acting skills are pushed to the limit with the especially horrible gift.

Every year, you look at the presents beneath the tree (or where ever you keep them) and hope they’re all good so you don’t have to put your minimal acting skills to the test (or maybe that’s just me).

In this video, Benedict Cumberbatch gives some tips and tricks for not letting on that you think a present could be the worst gift in the history of gift-giving. I hope you find something useful from this video, even if it was just a good laugh.

“It’s terrific because it’ll scare the neighbors and keep everyone away.”

Even the greatest of actors can have a challenge when facing Christmas but have a fantastic holiday season.
