Must admit, there have been some doooooozies!
I received a bike cleaning kit and don't even own a bike!
I think the worst was some strange bulky recipe holder made of clay, covered with enormous gaudy fruits and vegetables. It was a wedding gift, but I was rather surprised as the couple who gave it certainly seemed to display far more taste in décor than that. You know it had to have been super gaudy as it was in 1980...maybe we were some of the first recipients of re-gifting! :-P
I wish I had taken a picture of it before we threw it away, for which I felt enormously guilty for doing.
My brother gave me a beautiful, expensive sweater that was simply NOT MY COLOR at all. I never wore it, and the fact that it was a thoughtful gift made me feel sad to give it away.
Underwear large enough to fit my granny from my granny, Hence, granny panties,
Someone bought me a tampon once for some reason. I don't know why. They thought it was funny XD
When I was 11 yrs old, I made some jewelry that I wanted to give my grandma. The only box I could find was an empty Tampax® box to wrap it in. I didn't know what it was at the time...but oh, boy, did my grandmother ever laugh so hard!
One of my exboyfriends gave me a playstation game knowing that I didn't have a playstation. Then asked if he could keep it at his place for me.
A small kitchen appliance.
I loooooove cooking but hate gadgets. I don't even own a microwave oven.
The worst gift given to me from another is ignorance and lack of friendliness when offering the hand of friendship, forgiveness and understanding.
I am sure others have felt this too. There is no need for IGNORANCE, especially when people try to get on with each other, dont you think?
The worst gift? That came from my husband... it was a battery operated friend, for keeping me company when he was gone.
hmmm let me think...one of the worse gifts I got was an ugly shirt from my grandma and had to wear it too. It was pink and she knows I hate pink...this was when I was younger...thankfully now she just gives me money
I got another one but it wasn't for me it was for my mom. Dad gave her a gift card to Ross's and she HATES Ross. My mom was pissed so she turned around and used the gift card and bought dad his clothes from there
Andother time dad signed a check that grandma had given to him over to my mom. Yea mommy was mad lol
For Christmas last year a dear family member bought me a cat toy, --- a ball wih a racoon like tail on it that would go in circles on the floor. It was battery operated. I didn't own a cat, and when I did get one he hated the thing because it made noise.
I was given a Ouija board by my Sister once!
Another time a friend gave my Hubby and I a large ornament that consisted of a jar of preserved chilli peppers, (clearly labelled "not for human consumption").
Worst Christmas Gift I ever got was quite a few years ago. I was 16 and my parents bought me a vacuum.
What does a 16 year old want with a vacuum??
A christmas bell made out of brass the size of a tea kettle OMG please WTF huh?
A buddy of mine got a DVD from his girlfriend of her f%@king her boss. That was her subtle way of breaking up with him I guess.
A banged up tin can, painted and ribbons on it for Christmas. Was a grab bag gift on my bowling league. Man it was bad.
I got an electric Ice Scraper when I didn't have a car. That sucked!
My boyfriend sometimes gets me the randomist, strangest gifts.
The last thing he gave me was for no particular reason..he just got me a gift for he hell of it and it was a small teddy monkey. It has these little pockets in it's paws and stretchy legs, so it's designed for sling-shotting around the room. When you fling it, it make this horrible loud screaching monkey noise that goes for ages...
I didn't quite know how to react when he gave me this bloody thing! ...umm thaaanks...What the hell am i supposed to do with it!?!? Lol
It's hanging on a hook in the kitchen..Because my boyfriend wasn't very impressed to see it thrown in amongst piles of clothes...Iv'e got to get rid of it somehow
