    My ex mother in law gave me the worst gift ever.
    It was a rough Christmas in the months before we divorced. For Christmas she gave me a gift from Victoria Secret. The bag was beautiful and festive. When I looked inside, she had given me all the little perfume samples that are freebies in the mall. They were still attached to the smelling cards.

    The worst Christmas gift I ever got, was actually the best gift I never got. When I was about 7 or 8 we lived with my mom's younger bother and sister and their stepmother for awhile . . . my mom was a single mom and we had very little (hence living with relatives), and had not had very child-delightful Christmases. I woke-up one Christmas morning and found a Civil War set under the tree, it had a cool Civil War hat and belt/holster with a pistol, but coolest of all, a Civil War saber and sheath . . . it appealed to me so much I just assumed it was for me - until my mom stood at the door calling to me in the yard to bring it all in the house to put back under the tree for my cousin.

    I got a Rubik's Cube for Christmas one year, and I wanted to hang myself because I couldn't figure it out.

    I once said how much I liked a fleece shirt that I had.  I'm guessing it was 20+ years ago.  Now, every single frickin' year my mother gets me a fleece shirt or jacket for my birthday or Christmas. 

    I felt bad, but I actually told her a little while back not to get me anymore fleece.

    The worst christmas gift I ever received was an excuse of why christmas was cancelled this year due to the elves being on strike after santa had been at the whisky again.

    I actually grew up thinking santa was an alcoholic lol lol

    My worst-of-the-worst happened about age 7. Parents celebrated secular Christmas, school had Christian Christmas. That was confusing, but a relative gave me boy's clothing as a gift and tried to persuade parents to join another religion. I hated that year.

    Baby dolls! When I was a kid, I was a real tomboy. My mom tried to make me a "girlie girl," so she insisted on giving me a baby doll every year for Christmas. I usually used the dolls for target practice with my BB gun. lol

    Mom and Dad made up for all those stinkin' baby dolls the year they surprised me with a horse!

    ...kitty cat things...lol...and for a long time...just cuz I owned a cat...people thought i'd luv cat related things......nope!....

    managed to get rid of it all when I moved across the country - called in the neybor's daughter and said 'take what you want'......it was all gone - poof!

    about 10 years ago, someone else decided I needed another cat related gift....this time it was stained glass kitty cats...omg!...they came for a visit a few years later and noticed that I hadn't hung it up with my other stained glass.....omg!...i was caught!....it's gone now...put it outside at the end of the driveway....poof! again!

    I know, I know...it's the thought that counts...but sheesh, just cuz I had a kitty cat, it doesn't mean I want to be surrounded by cat stuff lol

      I can really identify with this. Because Hubby and I have a freshwater fishing lake business my Mum tends to buy us presents like fish ornaments, tea towels with fish printed on them etc. She also buys us lots of cat things because we have cats, and because I had a lovely Doberman about 13 years ago she has been known to buy me a Doberman fridge magnet and a Doberman ornament. hmm

    A Book: Now before you accuse me of being uneducated, let me explain. Even though I LOVE reading, perhaps the worst gift was the Lord of the Rings book from my boyfriend at the time...we had been going out for about 4 months and I got a book? Not very romantic...I think I gave him cologne...

        I managed to sit through number 1, and it never seemed to end. I was fuming when I realised the plot was not wound up at the end of the movie and I was supposed to watch two more in order to get to the 'ending'. Needless to say I didn't bother.

    My worst Christmas gift was the box load of towels. Hand, face, bath, everything. Do I look like I haven't bathe for years? And, on top of that, a relative who came from abroad gave another set of bath towels. It's like the easiest and cheapest thing to buy.

      I must confess that for a laugh last year I got my Husband an extra pressie. It was a small cool bag for lunchboxes. The catch was that it had 'Richard' (his name) printed across the top of it, and a space rocket and a planet printed each side of the name. I made him take his sandwiches to work in it, (it had a nice easy to use shoulder strap so he could carry it). He was 42 at the time and working in a private bank as a manager of his department lol

    This was not my experience, but it's so funny/awful I thought I'd share it.

    My friend's younger sister wanted a cell phone of her own in the worst way, and when it got to Christmas time, she was dropping hints like crazy. So on Christmas day, she went under the tree, and found a small square box. She ripped off the paper to find that it was a Blackberry phone box (a better phone than what she dreamed of!) and when she looked inside, she found...a pair of earrings.

    Turns out their dad had just gotten a Blackberry at work, so they used the box to put in the smaller earrings box in, and stuffed it with styrofoam peanuts to make it seem heavier.


    It's mean and funny at the same time hmm

    Thought of another one...not mine but happened to my friend. Years ago, his mom went to the CD store to get him and his brother a CD for Christmas. She asked the clerk what the two top selling CD's were....long story short, my friend got Pearl Jam's 10 and his older brother got the Bodyguard soundtrack.
