What's the worst present you've received on the holidays?

My sister one year got me acne stuff and a hideous skirt (and at the time I was not wearing dresses/skirts either). Made me cry!

That's awful! I hate it when people don't put much thought into their gift, it just makes you feel like they really don't care about you.

My mom is notorious for giving bad gifts.

An ex of mine gave me cash and a gold (I hated gold at the time) Minny Mouse (I was never a fan, or any sort of Minny Mouse supporter) locket. He obviously had found it in his sister's jewelry box or something! Needless to say, he's not my DH! LOL!

OMG!! LOL!! I can't believe the minne mouse locket!! Please tell me you were under 14 yo!!!! Also the bobbing head gift sounds awful!!! Well, my worst gift that I can remember was from my late grandmother... She was a wonderful woman, but wasn't good with gifts... She gave me once a pair of spandex tights... white with orange polka dots (the size of a small coin). I was 11, and really wasn't into fashion at the time, but even I could tell they were NOT ok!!! LOL!!! It's weird, you know, how disappointed I was a t the time of the gift, and how it made me slightly angry every time I saw them later (the things were in a costumes box for years)... And now thinking about it, it only makes me miss her terribly!!!

My grandmother gave me a necklace from her jewelry box one year. It was a (fake) gold angel, probably 2.5 inches long, on a long chain. That in and of itself wasn't terrible.

BUT...

The next year, I opened a box. It was the SAME necklace, only in silver. It wasn't something I would wear in the first place, and now I have two of them. Ugh.

These are hilarious!!

Melissa - My step dad once got my mom a Chia Per for Christmas many years ago. She was NOT pleased! Now he consults me every year on what to buy her. Lol

The only gift I can think of is from my fav aunt. She ha my name in the grab bag and bought me a pair of Ove Gloves! At the time I was thinking WTF? and even she said trust me, you're going to love them and you know what, she was right! They're the best oven gloves I've ever owned! So a bad gift actually turned out to be not do bad, but it still was weird to receive them as a Christmas gift. ;-)

I do believe I have 2 Ove Gloves ;) Both of them came from my in-laws, but they were stocking stuffers. We try to get creative with those, some of my coolest kitchen utensils were recevied in my stocking. We have a lot of fun with that each year!
