The only gift I can think of that I didn really care for was a necklace my husband gave me years ago. It's still in the box it came in. Just wasn't my taste, but he meant well.

When I was married not too long ago, my mother in law gave me a 6 inch tall Stone bird statue. It was hideous, not to mention it still has the $3.00 clearance sticker on the bottom.

I received a big wig to wear on my head!!! Apparently my brother thought I didn't have enough hair,which is down to my lower back!! The wig was bright red and I have dark brown hair!!! I thought it was a joke and started laughing, apparently it wasn't a joke, because I really hurt his feelings when I laughed, he so happy to give it to me too!!! Til this day i'll never understand why he felt I needed a fire engine red wig!! 😂😂😂😂

The worst gift I received was a fruitcake. I gave it to my sister the year before, not knowing she didn't like fruitcake. She gave it back.

The worst "gift" I got was a deny from a guy I was having a rush in college for 3 years. I finally took all of my bravery to ask him out at the around this time of the year, and he just said no to me and told me that we could be good friends but not lover. My heart was broken into pieces and it took me a quite to get over him.

My brother gave me a potato peeler for Christmas... The next year I got another of the very same potato peeler. Yeah he forgot he had given me one so gave me another. On the bright side... If it ever gets dull at least I have a spare.

My mother gave me a box of chocolate covered cherries when my children were little. She'd apparently forgotten that i'd never, ever, liked cherries. All was not lost though as my son actually enjoyed them slightly.

I was about 6 or 7 years old and my siblings grandmother (they have a different dad) gave me a candle...Not the smell good kind either..But a mosquito repellent candle. Mind you I was 6 and wasn't even allowed to play with fire lol.. I said thank you and and didn't show any signs of disappointment while she was present. After all she wasn't obligated to give me anything being I was not her grandchild, so it was the thought that counts right!?

Probably the worst gifts i've gotten were from relatives I don't see often. There were t-shirts with atrocious colors and patterns, but to be nice as you often have to be i've said i'll wear them. Though I appreciate them giving me something for the holidays before.

I had 2 gifts that were pretty bad. One was a rust colored suede mini skirt that was so big I could hula hoop in it and another one was a pair of nylon grandma pajamas that were a size 2x. At the time I was a size 2. I wouldn't wear either even if they fit.

My worst gift was when I was about 10 and my mom accidentally gave my sister my lego set gift and I received her teddy bear. I was so upset and finally, mom switched them to the right person so happy ending to my worst gift.

Wishful_Thinking
I usually like to be grateful for what I receive since no one really is obligated to give anything nor should I expect to get anything. However, I vaguely remember getting two palettes of eyeshadow which I was happy for until I used them. Not so bad right? Wrong I don't know what was in it but I had a horrible reaction to them so in the trash they went.

I was around 6 or 7 and got a plastic mug filled with really cheap crayons inside. The crayons were so waxy they wouldn't color and the plastic mug never lost the crayon small that lingered inside. So both parts of the gift became unusable.

My dad and stepmom sent me Christmas cards and Birthday cards for years (as a child I lived in another state) and inside they wrote, "your gift is on order", I never got them.....A card without a lie would have been better as a child.

Do not give a woman perfume unless you know what she wears. I got perfume from my ex-fiance's father. I made us go back to the store to get something I actually liked. Had I been a less difficult person, I would have smiled and said thank you and given it away. I might have also been stuck with someone who didn't suit me.

He also got me a few gifts that he didn't put any thought into. Worst Christmas ever. Don't get me wrong, he's great husband, but when it comes to gifts.... He's the worse...

My husband's grandma used to join every sweepstakes she could find, including the scams that require you to pay to enter. She got tons of cheap stuff in the mail as prizes. She would fill up a box and bring it on Christmas for everyone to go through and choose their own gift.

When I was younger we had a family friend who not only bought me the ugliest clothing it was definitely aimed at being worn by someone's grandma. Nice to be thought of not so nice to wear in school...We donated a lot of the nice clothes...I'm sure some old cat lady was very happy since it always had cats on it

After going into Law enf and spending yrs in college for a future federal law career, I had a bad accident that ruptured and blew my spine to slivers. 3 failed/Botched surgeries later lead to a chronic immune disorder of the nervous system known as the most painful chronic disease to date. Dec 2015 after 20 yrs, my husband walked out(he had his own issues)and never came back. My tween at the time couldn’T handle the stress and had already moved in with grandparents. I say on my porch that Christmas and watched from across the street as they celebrated the holiday. I don’T see her on holidays anymore. I’Ve never asked for anything but if I was one to want things I would say that was the worst present I ever received. Blessings and happy holidays. Stephanie :)

I have to say no gift is bad if it comes from the heart! The worst gift was my kid saying mommy I could not get you nothing,but it is really, the best gift I had gotten. I have 2 sons and 5 grandbabies that are my sweet gifts from God every day!

Normally, my family and I gather at grandparents in Ashe County, nc in my home town. My mother at the time lived over 100 miles away in the city. And my grandparents house was about 100 miles away as well. Mother was coming to scope me up three days before Christmas. I spoke to her the night before and she had not heard anything about bad weather. Even making sure I watched the news. Nope no mention of snow or ice. Just going to be cold, they said. Awaken the next morning and started packing. Over half way thru I remembered I had not checked the mail the day before. To my surprise when I opened the door there was 3 feet of snow and still falling. My ❤ Broke. That was the first but last Christmas I spent alone. I think I cryed the time.

I was so excited when I saw a gift from my brother! When I opened it, it was just a moldy, dried up potato with those white things growing from it, He said he found it in the pantry all alone and forgotten ( for a long time ) and thought it would be funny. I was heartbroken.

I'd say the worst gift I received was when I was 15. My dad bought me an iron for Christmas. He needed one and bought it for me. I still tease him about it.

Last year and this year, we were hit by hurricanes and took a lot of damage. Every dime we have & Had has gone to repairs. This did not leave much money for Christmas gifts and so my mother bought used and refurbished gifts. The gift she got me was electronic & Did not even work. While it was probably the worst gift ever, it was also the best.

The worst gift I ever got was the last one from my grandparents, it wasn't really that it was a bad gift, it's just that it was the final gift from my grandfather as we buried him the day before Christmas. It changed Christmas for me forever.

The worst gift I ever received was a basic $3 white top from walmart. A relative was bragging how she got me a nice gift and when I got it I was disappointed. It's the thought that counts but don't say anything unless it's actually something thoughtful. I had given her a nice gift thinking she had spent a fortune.

My grandmother gives "interesting" gifts every year. Top 2 would be soap on a rope that smelled horrible and second
Would be nightgown in a style she would wear with super thin satin fabric, lace and high neck collar. Worst part was she wanted me to try on the nightgown and show everyone how it looked. A "friend of the family" was there, who always gave me lecherous creepy looks. When he heard her request I model this thin monstrosity, he suddenly sat up and got a nasty grin on his face. Needless to say, I politely declined and thanked her graciously.

In high school one of the clubs I was in was doing a secret Santa. We were given a budget and a person at random to shop for. When it came time to exchanging gifts the person who selected me didn’T show up to the gift exchange. Instead, she sent a message along with a friend of hers stating she had forgotten and would gift me another day. I never received my gift until Valentine’S Day! And to top it off it was one of those musical hallmark cards that literally took months to lose battery life. My family members would open it up nonstop, even at late hours. It got rather annoying!

When I first started dating my (now husband), I was so excited about our first Christmas together. I just knew he would gift me a necklace or something really special. I was just a bit disappointed when I opened my present and saw that he'd given me a microwave oven. I know it was practical but it wasn't personal or special. It's a joke between us now but I was a bit hurt that Christmas day.

A used candle. The giver took it off a table and said "ooh I don't like this one" pulled a bag out of the trash, put the candle in the bag and said "here". She handed me a second gift that she tore the tag off and same thing shoved it towards me and said "here this was, for someone else". I ended up giving the 2nd back after she reminded me 5 times that my gift was supposed to be for someone else.

Long story short even though it was old, I still grew very fond of it almost immediately, but then died one week later on New Years day. Worse and saddest present ever. :(

My in-laws are notorious for giving us large gifts, and even though they are well-intentioned, we simply don't often have the real estate in our home to keep them. Probably the worst was the year we lived in a 1200 sq ft house that didn't have a garage, shed, or covered area, and they bought my 2- and 3-year-olds each a large motorized vehicle (a jeep and a convertible). Other just-as-difficult previous gifts: ping-pong table & Huge garden tiller.

I saw the cutest set of hand made shark sock/Slippers on facebook 2 years ago and sent to my mom as an idea since she crochets. Well, I was the lucky recipient of this sweet attempt! The socks went above my knees and were so big, they flopped down and made me trip if I wear them. But I can't seem to part with them because of how much time and effort went into making these. I can't say they are the "worst" (i really don't have one) but I can say they definitely cannot be put to good use!

So here I am staring at old soap from a $5 dusty dollar tree basket and I noticed that there was wrapping paper underneath the wrapping paper she put it in. Worse still I was allergic to the soap in the basket so what I did use broke me out. Worst gift ever!!

I say open-ended because i'm sure everyone has received something in life they didn't like at some point. However, as many have pointed out ...Any gift means that the person at least was thinking about you ...Even if the gift was an insult ...Unless the gift was "meant" to be an insult. However, that's an entirely different issue!

Some might say that no gift at all is the worst gift. However, some people can't afford gifts, some people honestly forget (even if it wasn't intended) and some just have no idea what to give, as it can cause anxiety & Stress (seriously)!

So while this q is geared at the "worst gift" ever ...I'd like to say opposite and tell you the "best gift ever" ...That was the gift life! God created life for me inside my Mom. He chose her to give me life and my Dad, as well. So i'm thankful for that alone. However, I didn't "receive" Him, as my Lord & Savior until the year 2000. And there is no greater gift than to receive Christ in your life!

While all of Christmas seems to be geared at "stuff" (how much money is spent and/Or made) and the entire meaning of Christmas seems to have been "lost" altogether ...I want to bring us back to the true meaning of Christmas! Jesus Christ was born ...That's the greatest gift to all of us that God gave us! It's up to us to receive that gift of everlasting life ...Just ask Him into your heart & Watch your life forever change!

I won't lie & Tell you it will be an easy life. In fact, for some, to receive this gift may cause conflict, turmoil and even separate you from family and/Or friends. However, the life we have on this earth is short-lived and no one is guaranteed another day. So you have to choose ...Are you only living for the moment or do you want to live like there's no tomorrow? It's simple enough, and yet entailed!

So again, I don't want to focus on the "worst gift" ever ...I only want to concentrate on the "best gift" ever ...The gift of Jesus Christ! He is the reason for this season!

Blessings & Prayers to each of you who reads this! May you find & Receive the gift that keeps on giving! O:-) <><~~~

My great aunt (that was well off) use to give myself, my mom, and my aunt used candles from around her house as Christmas gifts. She would buy all the guys something new but us females got stuck with her used stuff. Guess she got tired of the smell and decided she needed to do something with it. But I always appreciated the fact that she thought about us each year because she lived out of state and we rarely seen or talked to her.

Now every week no hints but just comment omg its the best thing..... So I get my gift in the mail I open the box and there is this doll like a baby in it ... Thinking it was just one of those American doll things but a baby like you over pay for blah balh... Its was so really looking was creepy then take it out of the box and feels so real then pick it up and it has a heart beat ... Its wasnt one of those you take care of dolls .... Omg I Screamed (and it breaths you can feel it with the heart beat ) Screamed and took video and pictures with my phone... Then put it back in the box and put it in my closet ..... Couldn't sleep that night it was like Chucky was in my closet or from movie Poltergeist with the clown doll.... It lasted 2 days and had to donate it.... I looked it up and was like a one of a kind $500 plus purchase ...... Omg I still have nightmares about that thing

I seriously thought about this and the worst gift I have ever received was bubblebath that had already been used. Either it was not properly filled at the factory or it was used. I figure, if that is the worst Gift I could have ever received, well, I am pretty lucky. A gift is just that, a gift. To be thought enough of, to be put on a list to receive a gift is enough for me. I was taught "It is better to give than to receive." I believe that very much!

A toilet paper holder made of a wire coat hanger and lace, which gave the receiver the ability to tastefully display extra rolls of toilet paper above the tank to prevent unfortunate shortages. Bless her heart, my aunt made these for everybody and really thought they were something.

Nothing. I had worked so hard to make sure my now ex-husband and his family had the best Christmas dinner, the perfect gifts, a wonderful time together - and I did not receive one single gift from any of them. I don't remember even hearing "thank you" for all the cooking and cleaning up afterwards. Did I mention he is now my ex-husband? A simple "thank you" would have meant a lot!

My ex mil was a big thrift store shopper. I have nothing against that but she gave me a ceramic bird knick knack that was had a broken piece on it. I'm not a knick knack person and have no affinity for birds. She said "i know you like to collect birds" i'm sure I gave her a deer in the headlights look because i've never in my life bought or received a bird anything. I tried really hard to be appreciative but i'm someone whose face gives me away all the time. She said "Well if you don't like it, i'll just keep it" I forced a smile and told her, no I would keep it and thanked her for the gift.

Worst Christmas gift ever was a gift from my mother and step dad. That year I had wanted a car for Christmas since I had just turned 16 that summer. So the morning of Dec. 25th of 1982 I was handed my gift to open. I was so excited as I was about to open this pretty red wrapped little box, that had sounded like a set of keys when I shook it. I just knew my Christmas wish had come true. But the final joke was on me! Inside my gift box was 2 blank/Uncut keys and a Penny with a note that read "Here are the keys to your brand New Lincoln." True Story!

When I was a teenager, I received a literal box of rocks from my aunt and uncle who are geologists. They were so excited to share their passion for geology that they forgot I was a teenager whose last interest in the world was to start a rock collection. They packaged the rocks in a nice box and told me they could add to it if I was interested. It took every last ounce in me to smile nicely and accept the gift graciously. Needless to say, it didn't stay long in my bedroom.

I was little when this happened, my grandmother, my mom and my aunt all got me the same ugly green sweater the same year by the time I opened the 3rd on my mom said I was crying, back in the 70's we did not know what gift return was so I was stuck with those sweaters. Talk about the horrors of living in a small town lol but I think after that they started to call each other cause it never happened again.

The worst gift I received was when I was about 14 or 15 and my Godmother gave me a nightgown for Christmas. I know you're probably saying "what's so bad about a nightgown". Well 1, I wore it during the summer when I stayed at her house and 2, it was more of a nightgown you would wear for your honeymoon(not for a 14 year old). The gift she gave my Grandmother, her mother, was worst- a case of cranberry juice.

I had just met my future in-laws for the first time, a few months before Christmas. My fiancé And I travelled across the country to celebrate the holiday at their beach house. On Christmas morning, my future mother-in-law handed me a heavy beautifully wrapped package. I opened it up and it was a large fruit cake. I smiled, acted like I loved it, and thanked her. I kept reminding myself that it is the thought that counts and that she didn’T have to get me anything. My husband got a $2,000 mountain bike. Later that day, I was putting ithe fruit cake in the kitchen and happened to notice that there was a gift tag stuck to the bottom that read “To Christine”, My mother-in-law’S name. Then, I noticed the expiration date next to it, with an expiration date from two years ago. So, not only did I get a fruit cake from my future mother in law, I got a re-gifted expired one.

By the time my now-husband and I celebrated our first Christmas together, I was 18 and we had been together for nine months. I had purchased gifts for his entire family of 6. His mother was not crazy about me, but I was alone for Christmas, so he wanted me to come have dinner with them. He picked me up with gifts in tow, and when I got there, he was furious when he found out his mom had nothing for me~ I was the first serious girlfriend he had ever had, and we had been together for almost a year~ But of course, he knew it would hurt me, so he snuck her into her room to talk privately. She felt bad that she had nothing for me, so she picked something out of her "just-in-case" present box, wrapped it, and snuck it under the tree. After his family opened all of the gifts i'd brought, his mom said, "i have something for you, too!" And handed it to me. My heart warmed! "Aww", I thought, "She does like me!" I'm sure I had a big smile on my face, but when I opened it, my heart sank..It was so obvious that it was not a gift she had intentionally purchased for her son's first Love. It was three super cheapo plastic candles that resembled Christmas bulbs. Of course, I accepted them graciously...But my boyfriend was so upset that he ended up telling me that night.
Fast-forward 17 years: we are married and "Ma" loves me.. And though she sometimes still gives me gifts that make me wonder if she knows me like, at all, lol, I have never gone another Christmas without generous, and thoughtful gifts.

I really don't remember ever receiving a bad gift, but one gift, though not a bad gift, made me sad. I was seven when my mom took me Christmas shopping with her. She caught me looking at a yellow winter cap that tied under the chin and had a pom-pom hanging off the back. I thought it looked so cool! She smiled kindly and said, "Do you want me to get that for you for Christmas?" I told her that I would love it! On Christmas, I opened a package that said, "From Santa." It was the yellow cap! While my siblings were opening their gifts, I whispered to my mom, "Santa got me the same cap that you did. Now i'll have two." She confided that she had just written "From Santa" on the tag, and that there would be no second hat. I realized then that Mom and Dad were Santa. Broke my little heart.

A Barbie video game. I was 18. It was in a huge box, filled with paper, and it was for a PlayStation, even though I didn’T have one.

Honestly, it may be a tie. One year my mil gave us a bunch of random stuff like snacks, expired tea and a travel cup from a team we didn't like. All of which was stuff left in the dorms she cleaned. With that was a candle she re-gifted with the tag still on it from the person who gave it to her. Another year she wrapped and gave me second hand stuff that was not in good condition that I had said I liked (out of politeness) which were on the shelves in her living room.

A $20 vacuum cleaner from my ex-boyfriends mother. I needed a new vacuum for my whole house and she gifted me with a $20 vacuum cleaner, as she received $200 lamps, etc., For her gifts. The guy has never married and I can see why. Worst gift and worst mother. So glad to be rid of both :-)

My mom had been hinting big time for a couple of months that she wanted new living room furniture. The day before x-mas there's he still hasn't put any gift(s) out for her and she's hounding him for "hints" about what she's getting. The only hints he will give her are, 1: it had to be delivered 2: it cost $400. Needless to say she was elated, because she just knew she was getting a new couch. When her gift still hasn't arrived and she has nothing to unwrap, she talks him into just telling her what is coming.
He was so proud and puffs his chest up to tell her she would be getting "The Three Tenors" cassettes in the mail any day now. He had made a donation to p.B.S. At the $400 level to get her these tapes, because he knew how much she loved Pavarotti.
Sufficed to say she was not thrilled

One year I bought my sister a very beautiful blanket that she has been wanting for Christmas. The very next year to my surprise she was gifting it back to me. I wouldn't have been so upset if she hasn't used it. I had no idea what she was thinking. But I just smiled and said thanks.

My worst gift happened the one year I got absolutely nothing. Yes i'm a grown woman but to receive nothing was very heartbreaking. By the time everyone had realized they had forgotten me it was later in the day and they gave me gifts they didn't want. It's was a sad year but I must say no one has forgotten me since. :)

The worst gift I ever received was from my now ex husband when we were dating. It was a gift certificate to a very obscure little boutique in our little town. This place was for very petite women. Being a plus sized girl, there was nothing there for me. The amount was $10. It is a designer boutique. Needless to say, the gc expired, never being used. I was so disappointed that year as we had dated for a full year and I put hours of thought and planning into his gift. Not that I need reciprocity, just a little thought would’Ve been nice. Walmart would’Ve been better! You might get a vibe that i’M still a little bitter about that...Anyway.
Merry Christmas 🙂 🎄 🎅

So, this was not a holiday gift, but rather a wedding present. Someone who was invited and attended was a photographer. The present they gave was a photo portfolio, basically those cardboard holders for photos that you can display photos in. Something that they basically give away free to clients. Never understood that present (maybe they included something else but the rest disappeared in the craziness of the day????)

The worst one would be the year I got nothing. That feeling that you aren't even worth giving something that might be a joke or considered bad even. Getting nothing and sitting there while others open their presents is the worst feeling ever, especially when you went to a lot of trouble to make sure they all got something.

Nothing is more embarrassing than being at a holiday party secret santa and receiving underwear. I chose a small package, and the rules were that you could keep it or trade it for one that was taken already. I kept it, but got traded with a few times. At the ens we each opened our packages in the order we picked and held the contents up, so others who traded could see what they missed out on. My original pick was a really pretty coffee mug. When it was my turn I was mortified. I held up a thong that was meant for an elephant. We all laughed, but in the following weeks a few coworkers kept asking if I was wearing the thong and what I did with it. It was all good fun, but now i'm very wary about secret santa gift exchanges. Lol

But at least got some use out of the pony tail holders and crossword puzzle book until he got aggravated that I was spending too much time doing puzzle lol 🤪

Although I really appreciated the thought and gestures, I did receive some not so special gifts in my lifetime. One year for Valentines day, expecting another pretty necklace alongside the kid box of chocolates, was a beautiful glimmery red box. As I opened the red box, I was surprised to be a bottle of... Beano?! I guess that means to lay off the veggies. (At least for Christmas I received a pair of plain white socks.)
