    What is the worst, or tackiest, Christmas givt you've ever gotten?

    In my case, it wasn't so much the gift, but the "thought" behind it.  I briefly dated a guy who had major issues.  He gave me a used Macintosh; it was so old, the hard drive had to be added on.  He even told me he'd paid $5 for it.  Then he said he wanted to break up with me - real nice, on Christmas Day!
    So I didn't sit with him next time we were in church.  He came to my place the following monday, demanding his gift back!  I got a good laugh with that one!
    So, what are your stories?

    I guess how bad a gift is depends how it is perceived in the eyes of the receiver. I think some people who give these gifts see the potential in a particular gift, but fail to recognize how the receiver might feel about it.

    One Christmas, my ex-husband, who was always telling me that at 120-lbs I was fat, gave me an ab-roller for Christmas so I could "get rid of those rolls" in my stomach (granted, I had just had a baby a year prior). Come to think of it, he was always complaining he didn't like my natural strawberry blonde hair, so a box of hair color was also received that same Christmas from him in a redder color.

    To me, they were hurtful gifts because he wanted me to change for him. He, I guess, thought I'd see it differently.
