I have a friend who 3 years ago now recieved a packet of tampons from her Grandmother for xmas!!! They were in a pretty container but yeah tampons as a gift we (my friend and I)) didn't think was really appropriate.

My worst Christmas present ever was a bottle of Nivea Body moisturizer from my MIL.Or was it the tshirt that she bought another year from a shop that caters for over 70yrs, I was 30 yrs old. The list really is never ending but all from my MIL - bless her poor taste!

The worst present I ever received was when I was younger from my aunty & uncle. They bought me a pair of knickers & left the price tag on them, 89c. My mum & dad always taught me to use my manners so I replied with "Thank you very much - I need some more knickers".

I'm a follower and a facebook fan... you asked "Tell us your worst Christmas present ever" but not necessarily one we received... The worst gift I have ever witnessed being given was from my father in law to my brother in law... A 'self help' book on how to get a girlfriend - Yep, that's right... he was very seriously thinking he was being 'helpful' - soooo embarrassing for my shy (single) brother in law!

my WORST holiday gift ever was this god awful orange sweater, and by orange i mean BRIGHT!

Bex Davies said...

my worst was when I was given a ugly top. I was told to try it on, but it was a childrens 10, not adults. I said, oh im so sorry, but its a wee bit too small... which was replied with "Well Its not MY fault you got fat all of a sudden!"
Noice.

I think the worst chrissy gifts I have recieved would have to be the coffee and coffee mug sets I recieved 4 years in a row from husband's niece.......Nobody in our house drinks coffee LOL
Or is it the towels I have recieved every Christmas from my MIL since I met her??? this Christmas it will be 15 years of towels and trays for Christmas from her....I have enough towels and trays to open my own store LOL

His family sure doesn't like change ROFL

The worst Christmas gift I have seen given was my grandmother (Mum's Step Mum) giving my Dad a ream of white paper...yep...a ream of white paper. We still have no idea what she was thinking!!!

MuddKids said...

My old Aunty Ollie knitted my mum this *gorgeous* jumper one year. How do you hold a straight face at such a ghastly piece of work? Now that she has passed on, mum and I wrap it and give it to each other on alternate years to keep her spirit with us, but also a bit of family humor never goes astray.. And would you think, it gets funnier every year trying to disguise the bulky gift under the tree!

Your Special Day said...

My worst Christmas pressy from my dad, twice. A hair comb and a toothbrush (the repeat gift), as he wanted to be practical!!! What The!

Oh the shame of it, I was 12 when my aunty decided to take sewing lessons. She made me some undies and a white skirt, Not only did I have to be pleased and thankful my mum made me model my aunts great work to the family, yes undies and a skirt. Not only was it a horrible present, and badly sewn I was mortified at having to walk out infront of everyone in these.

I am a huge Bake it Pretty fan and I have been waiting and waiting for Amanda's shop to offer adorable wrappers like this. I have not been disappointed. Your wrappers are perfect!

I would definitely have to say that the worst Christmas present I ever saw gifted was actually given to my children from my very prim (at least I thought so) grandmother (age 86). It was the gift of a snow man and a reindeer. Both were candy dispensers. Both pooped out the candy and sang this song, "Dump dump dumpity, dump, dump dumpity. Have a good holiday!" I was so grossed out I couldn't believe that someone actually created these. Surely my grandmother only bought them because they were cute little characters and had no idea they pooped out the candy, right? WRONG. She was totally excited about showing them what the little snowman and reindeer were supposed to do. I will never look at my grandmother in the same way again.

Sigh...

The worst present I ever got was for "Omaha steaks" and my family and I are vegetarians. Oh, well.

Worst gift was not getting one! I haven't had a gift from my husband for 3 years! He has never been home so I haven't got one. I refuse to buy my own, I want a surprise!

The worst present that comes to mind is from my MIL. At the time I was 24 years old, engaged to her son with no kids.

She bought me a child's book on potty training called something like 'I'm a big girl now!' complete with button to push to make the flushing noise!!! To top it off she dedicated it to me on the inside cover so I couldn't even give it to someone who could use it!!!!

My worst crissy prezzie ever was a watch. I don't wear them, never have and never will. But the real funny part is the same person gave me another one the following crissy lol. Oh and make up. I dont wear that either. I have a draw full of the stuff just waiting for my DD to grow older

Klaudette said...

My worst Christmas present ever was a box of horrible baked goods...just awful and tasted very old...maybe freezer burned?!? I felt obligated to eat them since the person put so much effort into the gift, but I ended up just taking a bite out of each.

My worst present ever was an alarm clock. I am not a morning person, but at age 11 my mother was tired of waking me up in the morning. I hate the noise they make!

The worst present I have ever gotten was Star Trek sweatshirt, it looked like it was purchased at the dollar store, which is fine, by I am not, nor have never been a Star Trek fan.

DonnaP said...

My worst pressie was a can of peaches from an old family friend....they must have been in her pantry for a while as they came complete with dust!!! Oh, and I was only about 8 or 9 at the time so really not that useful ;o)

My worst present (or so I thought) were a pair of very old, used (well, a long time ago as there were cobwebs in them!) yucky green gumboots!! I did actually need some gumboots, so I kindov smiled at my husband and said thanks - then he put me out of my misery and sent me on a treasure hunt all around the house, ending up finding a lovely jewellery box instead!!

my worst christmas gift EVER was a couple years ago i had a really nice formal christmas party and my uncle decided to give me my gift then so I opened the box in front of everyone and pulled out a motion activated fat drunk man who started singing I LIKE BEER with a big harry gut hanging out and after if finally stopped singing it pulled down its pants and passed gas ! I was horrified ,it was so embarrassing and my uncle of course thought it was the funniest thing
