We all have that one friend or family member who feels a stronger affinity between themselves and the Grinch than they do with the Christmas spirit. There’s nothing wrong with being a bit of a grump over the Christmas holidays, but buying gifts for a grump can be a mighty difficult task if they bah-humbug at the first sight of baubles.

However, author Lotta Sonninen has created the perfect gift for the Ebenezer Scrooge in your life, The Little Book of Bad Moods.

The Little Book of Bad Moods is a cathartic activity book for adults that gives you the space to have a proper moan about everything that’s wrong with the world today.

A Finland-based fiction editor and a stand-up comedian who plays in a band in her spare time, the activities Lotta Sonninen has dreamt up for her Little Book of Bad Moods will not only have your furiously scribbling down the descriptions of the people that plague you every single day, but will give you a laugh as well.

Some of the activities in the book include:

  • What’s wrong with everyone? List all the idiots you encounter at work, home or on the daily commute.
  • What’s wrong with my life? And a list of those whose fault it is.
  • Retrospective comebacks: A List of all the things you should have said at the time, but didn’t.
  • Had a bad week? Please, vent in the journal pages.

The Little Book of Bad Moods by Lotta Sonninen is published by Bloomsbury, costs $12.99 and is available to buy now.
