Bad Christmas Presents

What’s the Worst Gift You Ever Received?

Maybe a not-so-romantic pair of slippers from your new boyfriend, or an ugly sweater from your great-aunt who doesn't appreciate its ironic value makes your not-so-merry Christmas present hall of fame. Or perhaps it's a gift that proves someone hasn't been paying attention at all, like a box of candy from a co-worker who knows you're diabetic, or tickets to see a band your boyfriend should know you hate.

I hope Santa brought you everything you wanted this year, but what presents of Christmas pasts have caused you to hold back a cringe while opening?

the worst it was the anticipation, my aunt told my mother "I saw this and I thought of her, it is very pretty" it was a .. shirt i guess... a fuchsia one, long... like an 80's thing, like one shoulder, long with a belt integrated of the same fabric. I was like "thanks..." and my mom was trying very hard not to laugh. but I still got it, I´m waiting to Halloween or an 80's party. The strange thing was that my aunt usually gives good things.

i got a really ugly hat from my grandparents, once. it looked like it was made from carpet that should have stayed in the 70s. :/

A dustbuster was by far the worst. But I usually get at least 1 present that I pretend to like. Its usually a clothing item that's just not my style.

I mean a hairbrush set.

I once got a set of hairbrush from my brother. But in my family we usually have this tradition of asking each other what we want; it works great.

Honestly, I usually always get gifts I like. Last year, I did get a lotion/shower gel/body spray set that I didn't like. At first, I thought it smelled really good. It wasn't until after I used the stuff that I realized it put off an after smell that was nasty. It made me stink. The scent was "cranberry tart".

Oh...way too many to list. My family apparently doesn't know who I am! lol God bless them, but they should not buy me presents. I'd rather just get a hug than another weird knick knack or ugly clothing item.

I have never received a gift that I really hated. My family and friends always ask other family members or friends for ideas about what to get everyone. The only thing that comes to mind is a clutch my aunt gave me a few years ago when I was 15. It wasn't ugly or anything, it was just more appropriate for someone older.
