When I was fourteen my grandma gave me this broach/pin that was the size of my fist of a light up reindeer. I was obligated to wear that dreadful thing every holiday for six years!
never got a bad gift. if someone thinks enough of me to give me anything, i say thank you.
thats good, the thought itself is good enough fo me too.
Wish I had your heart. The worst gifts I ever recieved were from the director of our department - she felt she had to buy gifts for the six staffers (myself included). Thoughless, only done because she would look bad if she didn't do something. Bought at the dollar store had absolutely no meaning or connection to anything. Left on my desk, didn't even get a personal note nor did she say anything - someone saw her leave it there and on the other's desks. I'd rather not get that kind of gift. I turned it into something good though - gave it to our church for their yard sale - they got $2. since it was new and had never been opened.
Sweet! Now that's how to make something out of, well something you would rather not have!
its not my heart. im lucky, ive never gotten a “just to look good gift.” i can see how that would be lame
A bright red PVC handbag in the "Jackie O" style, also when I was 14. NOT my cup of tea at all...
I would have to say, the lamest gift I've ever received, was NOTHING, except a "Happy Birthday", which was given to me by my mother, my sister, my nieces(both), but received no gifts.
Each of them said- "Happy Birthday", but didn't bother to take the time to buy a card or anything else for that matter.
Christmas gifts- I've never received anything lame.
oh Cagsil, but they have given you enough already, love and warmth maybe...
i always got nothing as a kid. not even a happy birthday. its why now, if i even get a phone call cuz someone thought of me, im excited. a real gift leaves me speechless.
how sad... Happy Birthday for all of those birthdays past!!!
When my x and I were getting a divorce... as he still kept trying to insist that he cared or payed any attention to me even knew me...
He comes home one day and gives me a red tulip. He says, "I know that the color red and tulips are your favorite." I says, "No, Chris... orange is my favorite color and hibiscus is my favorite flower, tulips are the flower I least like."
I heard somewhere that a good mother is a great gift.
Therefore my lamest gift was the one I got
My Ex Mother in law once gave me her used leather jacket for Christmas. I was speechless. The next year she bought me a bright pink shell suit which my ex husband made me wear xmas day. Now that is abuse.
I grew up in a wealthy family and always received nice gifts, but I never asked for anything. I try and make everybody elses Christmas nice now and Don't care if I get anything or not.
I can't remember my lamest... must have been very lame...
I did receive a few, one time one of those 7-11 roses that was already half wilted on our anniversary.
My dad was the worst gift giver ever. I would usually get an "I owe you" on my b-day.
On my 16th I was hoping to get my license and start driving as my older brother did. Instead he showed up early in the morning with a pregnant wild burro from an odoption deal with the BLM to "teach me some responsibility". It was an insult from him, but I pretended like its what I always wanted to take away his satisfaction.
I have to admit it was a terrible gift- but it felt good to put him in the worst retirement home I could find.
I've been fortunate enough to get any real poor Xmas gifts. My sisters have purchased me questionable outfits...one got me a thong with a bell on it. Can't say I used it.
One of my elderly relatives, bless her heart, gave me a homemade, purple and white beaded clip-on tie -- and just to clarify, it wasn't a tie with some beads on it. It was completely made of chunky, plastic beads. I'm still not sure if it was supposed to be a gag gift. But she proudly handed it to me, saying, "This is what all the girls are wearing!"
I once got used scratch off lottery tickets that didn't win in a gift exchange at work. The guy I got them from told me that he wanted to redeem them for me if they won, so that's why they were scratched off.
My husband once bought me a set of green saucepans one Christmas. Notice I said once,- he never did that again
I have always appreciated gifts that are given with thought, no matter if they are to my liking or not. I don't enjoy getting gifts from people who got them, just 'cause it is the thing to do. I would rather get nothing, than something that feels like it was bought out of duty. Because of this, I always opt out of all gift drawings that are work related or involve extended family.
A whistle for calling fish, yes I know, but she was trying to be helpful she didn't have any idea what fishing is all about. Now on the flip-side I have had my nephews blowing there lungs out with it until my wife see's whats going on then she has some drama with me.
my boyfriend @ the time (I was 18) bought me a Mickey Mouse broach, fake gold, fake diamonds and I didn't even like Mickey Mouse.....
