My grandparents used to give me a huge (seriously huge) bag of chocolate (that I don't like) every year. They now (thankfully) do gift cards.

This isn't the worst ever per se, but I got a secret Santa gift that was perfume. This is a really nice thought, but I'm allergic to perfume! The boss even announced it to everyone, so there really isn't any reason for anyone to remotely think "hey! I'll just find her some nice perfume". I hate thinking that this person is a jerk (because a gift is a gift after all), but I seriously took it as a fuck-you PB.

When I was 10, my grandma got me a package of underwear with the days of the week on the ass. It was a set of six.

Well my birthday is VERY close to Christmas so I get the birthday/Christmas present alllll the time. It sucks because most of the time people are too cheap and lazy to actually get me something for each occasion.

When I was in my 20s, my then boyfriend thought it would be great to get me tickets to a wwf wrestling match... You know the one that had "the rock" and Austin 3:16. Just to say I do NOT like to watch wrestling and to top it off the seats were in the nosebleed section and the stairs were very steep. I'm afraid of heights... Deathly afraid. To give you an example of how afraid.... I don't get near second floor balconies, I hate glass wall elevators, and escalators make me nervous.

I freaked out trying to walk to our seats. I believe I stumbled several times. It was not pleasant. His gift is the example I give now of what NOT to get me.

*Sigh* I trot this one out every year

When I was first married, I was taking Chinese cooking lessons. My MIL showed me pictures of some Asian-patterned place settings in a catalog and asked if I'd like them for Christmas; I enthusiastically said "YES!"

On Christmas Eve, my presents were the only ones not wrapped in Christmas paper. When I opened them--they were the covered metal dishes that they use to serve food in Chinese restaurants. The look on my face:


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

A couple of years ago, my brother gave me a gravy ladle for Christmas.

I lived with my parents, and had no need for silverware/serving ware of any kind.

I said "thank you" and then he went off on a tangent about how I was bitch and nothing was good enough for me.

I said "well, I'll be able to have all the gravy I want, now, since I have this awesome ladle!"


Maybe I am a bitch.

Who's old enough to remember leg warmers? The kind ballet dancers used to wear when practicing? I'm not a dancer and I guess they were sort of "in fashion" during the Flash Dance Era....

My exMIL was the queen of gift giving. One year I received a musty couch pillow covered in lint. Then the hand mirror with brush in a box completely mangled. Oh yeah and she re-gifted me perfume that she had asked me for the year before. I could go on but I would just like to end with the happiness I feel to no longer receiving her gifts!

As an adult I received one of those boxes of earrings that has like 24 pair in it meant for little girls, and that infect your ear piercing within five minutes. The price tag(s) was still on, and had been overlabeled at least 10 times with the top tag reading .99. They were even already tarnished looking. Awesome.

Sounds like he knew it was a shitty gift. Love your response, but then maybe I'm a bitch too

One Christmas when I was working in something like an urgent care on a military base in Germany, all of the staff drew names for the Christmas party. No one was required to participate. I don't remember what the limit was but it was around 40 bucks. I bought a really nice gift for the person whose name I drew.

When present time came, we opened one at the time. And my gift was.........

NOTHING!

The guy who drew my name just decided not to buy anything. Didn't bother telling anyone. And he was happy enough to receive a gift.

Does it have to be a Xmas gift??? I can't think of one but I can think of a cheap "thank you " gift I was given by two couples.
The two couples were going to visit the county where I come from in the Mediterranean. I still own property there and I offered it to them to stay for 2 weeks( the length of their trip) That saved them a LOT of money. When they returned, their thank you gift was 2 cheap kitchen towels that you can buy over there at the flea market for 2 euros each.
Honestly, what bothered me most is how ungrateful they were. I did not even expect anything; they would have been better off just sending a card. Their gift spoke volumes to me.......

Sad I remember your Asian dish gift!

My *best* gift was the first Christmas after I had my son. I had all of these pie in the sky dreams that I had read. You know, the kiss the daddy would plant on the mom just after the baby was born, telling you how wonderful you are... nope. So I thought for sure for Christmas I would get something very personal... maybe a nice nightgown... something to make me feel special and sexy again.

I got a bread box. A. bread. box. To this day he does not understand what he did wrong.

Co-workers had a gift exchange most years. It was a game where you could open a gift from under the tree or steal one from someone else, in order by numbers from one until done. If yours was stolen, you had the option again, and so on until all were opened.

I had a low number and chose one from under the tree rather than one of the few that were out. It came in a very pretty box. I was stuck with the partially burned candle and another used item because no one else stole it from me.

My I laws were both smokers. Every year, I had to throw away whatever they got us, because the gift reeked like smoke.

The best part of my holidays was when they would have meals or guests. Everyone else got the fancy crystal glasses - that bitch made me use Tupperware.

The best part of holidays for me is not having in-laws.

For many, MANY years, absolutely nothing.

Or worse, something he had rushed out and grabbed the night before.

Two stick out in my mind.

I had just birthed my daughter and was nursing. I'm well endowed anyway and what with nursing I looked like a breast implant operation gone wrong. Plus I had gained a ton of weight. I specifically told FWS I didn't want any clothing.

He got me a Victoria's Secret sweater. The kind that stopped right at the waist. It WAS a very pretty blue in his defense but it was obviously something HE liked. I was crushed. Never wore it.

#2 was Black Christmas (I busted him and FB#14 the day after). I had asked for a pair of pearl stud earrings. Instead he got me a pair of "less than .08 carot" diamond studs from Zales and adding insult one of the posts was so badly bent you couldn't wear them. I already owned a very nice pair of larger diamond studs. I didn't even try to fake my "thank you" through that one...... They were referred to as "the piss-ant little diamonds" because 48 hours later I didn't care if his poor widdle feelings were hurt or not.

After that debacle I just bought my own Christmas gifts and FWS endured it.
