I love hearing bad gift stories, lol! I just saw a story on Yahoo! about this, and thought I’d start a thread here. I know we had a similar thread a few months ago, but I was wondering if anyone had anything new to share? Any re-gifts, or anything?
One of the commenters on the Yahoo! story said that she received a used nightgown with a period stain on the back of it… I think that takes the cake!

Haha! A period stain on the back?! Wow! We are going home this weekend to celebrate Christmas with our family so I haven’t received gifts from anyone but Darling Husband… I didn’t dislike anything I got this year [yet] but hopefully this will be an entertaining thread!!

eeeewwww, that one is just gross!
Darling Husband is a terrible gift giver, I love him, but it is what it is. For the last three years he has done his shopping for me at CVS pharmacy, this year, he waited til Christmas morning. You can imagine the crap that I get, LOL, how do you not laugh about it?

I got this terrible gray cathair-looking beanie/beret. I don’t like hats to begin with…it was terrible!! My grandma gave it to me, but I just exchaged it today, so it’s all good.

My aunt likes to give “hint” gifts. This year I received “The Idiot’s Guide to Cool Careers”. Thanks auntie…
(It’s actually a pretty good book so far, though! Haha)

The worst gift I received this year was actually from Fiance.. although, it really wasn’t his fault. Every year he buys me perfume, and this year the one he got me was supposed to come with a free gift. When he bought it, however, he was informed that they never got any of the supposed free gifts in. He was a bit bummed, so they threw one in anyway–a light beige makeup case–nothing I’ll ever use, and definitely not my style. He won’t tell me what it should have been, though, lol.

My Future Brother-In-Law got me some crap cheapo bath products. He is such a cheap skate, he earns heaps and is always bragging about his latest gadgets. He got his 3 kids iPads for Christmas and heaps of other stuff too. We got him a gourmet beer tasting basket, and spent $25ish on each of his 3 kids. I was embarrassed for him when opening his gift because everyone could tell it probably cost $3.

Jewelry that is NOT my style at all and lotion in a scent I don’t like–which I realize is NOT that bad.

I got some shampoo for curly/wavy hair and my hair is stick straight. I can’t get it to curl if I tried.

A cheap-looking watch from my in-laws. I NEVER wear watches because anything worn on my wrists gives me an all-but-instant rash on my wrist.

Every year I get gifts “for me” but they’re things I can use for my dog – like dog toys, a sweater for my dog, etc. I mean, I love my dog, and people know that, but I can buy her toys and treats myself. I’m always disappointed when I unwrap a box with my name on it and it’s something for my dog…
