Worst Gift Ever Received

What's the Worst Present a Boyfriend's Given You?

Samantha Bee may be happily married to her Daily Show costar Jason Jones now, but she had to open a lot of bad presents first. She told the New York Times Magazine about the worst gift she ever received.

"It was $50 cash in a Tiffany ring box, from my boyfriend at the time. I think in his early teen years he may have sniffed a lot of glue. Picture me, breathless, opening this Tiffany box and finding $50."

To be fair, at least you can do something with $50 — like buy your own drinks — unlike most bad gifts. We're unwrapping our yearly gift guides this week at the PopSugar Network, so tell us what gift you never want to open again.

For our first Christmas as a married couple, I spent months finding him a specific Russian Watch and had it delivered from Russia (He had spent several years in Russia). He opened his gift and hated it...hahaha. I opened my gift...a digital recorder....for "grocery shopping lists". I didn't use it even once. Gave it to his mother. Last year, he went to Walmart just before it closed on Christmas Eve. Got me a walmart music gift card. I love music, but come on, spend some time and make it personal, like at least once in my life. :)

A backpack (for college) with a scientific calculator inside. He had a degree & I didn't, yet. I was thinking of going to school to pursue one. It was like a big hint/reminder. Later, I realized it was a sweet gesture. He was trying to be supportive & encouraging. But, at first, it seemed hurtful. I have my degree now. ;)

This wasn't me, but my friend started dating this guy about a month before Christmas. He kept telling her that she was going to love the present he got her, so she got him something pretty good for just a month of dating. The day finally came, and I was so excited to ask her what he got her. Turns out, he got her a 4-pack of multi-colored socks from TJ Maxx.. and he wrapped them IN the TJ Maxx plastic bag. I can't believe they are still together...

My boyfriend spent 50$ on this vibrating pillow that was supposed to simulate him being in bed breathing beside me since we were in a LDR. Yeah that this kept me up all night and I had him return it and use the money for gas to visit me.

A gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. Usually, I would be totally stoked, but I really wanted a watch and even showed him exactly which one. So, instead of buying a $75 watch, he got me a $75 gift certificate and told me he didn't know what I wanted. That's why he's an ex.
