Worst gifts of all time - Page 2

post #31 of 49
Oh dear...where do I start?

At the age of 24 I was still receiving gift that were toys...like "For Ages 6-12". The last time happened in front of of my SIL's parents and they asked her, "Why do they still by their daughter childrens toys?"
I told my mom to stop after that.

Then B got a taste of the "bad gifts" from my family. He got something like this from my brother and SIL. He was so PO'd...In his Opinion, you don't get another guy this for a gift.

I LOVE this thread! I don't have anything really good to add though. I got a tape dispenser and a sticky note dispenser from a family member that also liked to recycle gifts.

My mom got a prank gift for her nephew once. It was 3-legged panty-hose.

Oh yea, my sister got this present from my brother that was a naked man on a light switch cover and his penis went over the light switch. She was so mortified to get it in front of the family.

She did use it as a prank for her and her roommate. For awhile they both would randomly leave just the switch cover on a random light switch when they were bringing a date home

Try being at a bachelorette party with your mother!! A friend made penis pasta salad and made everyone drink out of penis straws. I th8ink my mom was more mortified than me though!

I have gotten a pair of pajamas from my ex. They were nice except they were 3 sizes to big!

Ok, maybe not as bad as the hoof decanter, but...

One year my mom and I got my Grandma a very nice sweatshirt that said Purdue on it. It was very pretty and we thought she would like it. When she opened it, she said it was soo pretty and that she loved it.


She gave it to my for Christmas that same year, along with a pair of earrings she told me she bought for herself but didn't like.

I think the worst part of it all is that I'm her ONLY granddaughter by blood.

My ex-bf gave me a brick that was from the set of The Blair Witch Project.

And my dad gave my mom a laundry basket for their first Christmas.

Despite my insistence that my extended family didn't need to get me presents (they don't know me very well at all and consequently get me very thoughtless gifts out of a sense of obligation), I was told by my mother that I had to give them a Christmas list. Well, I thought I'd nip the thoughtless part in the bud and at the bottom of my wish list I made a list of things I'd prefer not to receive -- I also made it very clear which list was which. (Tacky, yes, but sadly necessary.) At the top of my list were scented candles (which I'm allergic to), bath products (because at the time I only had access to a shower, so bubble bath was wasted on me) and knickknacks (because I was living in student housing and didn't need the extra stuff to lug around). So my uncle gets me a scented bath set with candles, bubble bath, and the most hideously ugly angel figurine I've ever seen. To top it all off, he gave me a stuffed animal made of reindeer fur. For Christmas. It was like he'd gone out and slain Rudolph.

Since then I've asked my relatives to donate money to the Humane Society in my name. It's just less complicated that way.

i am SO glad i'm not related to any of these people! & that i don't know any of them! the only time i get icky/bad gifts is at white elephant gift exchanges - & those aren't even that bad, just usually stuff i'm not interested in!
y'all definitely need to improve the class of people you hang out with

it wasn't really a "bad" gift, but when I started smoking, my grandpa decided to be funny and give me some tobacco and rolling papers for Christmas the only thing was, he put them in a box that had the word WORMS on the outside, I guess it from when he bought worms for bait or something , BTW he didn't put the stuff in that particular box on purpose, but it freaked me out so bad the I wouldn't open it!

The "hoof" came from a relative. I wish I could improve them.

you bring something you've received that you have no use for. sometimes they're ok things, you just can't use them. sometimes people bring really icky stuff, tho. then we usually have a chinese gift exchanged with them - that's where you draw numbers & get to steal each other's gifts. fun - especially when the gifts are mostly junk!

Worst gift I ever recieved? That would be Valentine's day my senior year of high school. My (now very ex) bf told me he'd gotten "everything women want" for me- aka flowers, jewelry, chocolate. Now, first of all, he knew several things. one, I hate gold. Two, I hate diamonds. Three, I'm allergic to walnuts. Four, I've never recieved real roses and want very little more than a dozen red roses (My middle name is rose and I've NEVER been given real roses). So, for valentines day, he gave me:
A purple rose made of feathers
A tiny box with two (cheap) chocolate walnut clusters
and the grande finale, he proposed, with a GOLD RING, with a (ack) heart shaped stone (bleah!). unfortunately I had to accept because he was abusive and scary, but that June I dumped him.

Over our 2.5 year relationship he gave me a feather rose, a glass rose, a metal rose, a plastic rose, and a chocolate rose. He said he didn't like real roses because they die. So? I like real roses...

Oh I almost forgot this one: the first three gifts my husband ever gave me were lamps. We now have a rule that he can't buy me anything that plugs in.

I really can't compete with the urinal or hoof decanter, but every xmas since I was about 6 my uncle gives me a nightie the size of a tent. They are Always pink or purple with cartoon dogs or bears on the front (i've never liked those colours). I now (and only just) fit the ones i got before i was 10, unless i gain about 50lb thats how it'll stay

For my birthday, about 3 months after my husband and I met, I got a calculator from him. And a note about how much he appreciated my friendship. Ack! I was 24, and a music major - a calculator??? Well, I must admit, it did work well for many years. And he's gotten much better at gift-giving!

I'm sure there are other terrible gifts I've received when I was younger but the one I remember the most was from Chad!

It was probably 2 years ago- for Valentine's Day- we went away for the weekend and I got him something really special and went the extra mile and pampered him all day. So when it came time to exchange gifts he got me a Dori flashlight! It looks like something you would buy at a gas station for a kid I was so bummed at the time but I still have it and we use it on occassion!
