Bad gifts, not really.  But we have spent 4 Christmases together, and neither of us can remember what he got me for one of them.  We have tried multiple times, but apparently what ever escapes both of us.

@abirdword:  One year I got nothing for my birthday, and one Christmas I got a kitchen floor mat and a page-a-day calendar

I can’t really think of an awful gift he’s given me. But he used to be awful at wrapping. When we first started dating have gave me a pink RZR phone wrapped in a Pringles box and TIN FOIL. Lol.

I pick out all my own presents for the simple fact that I know I wouldn’t like things he generally picks lol

@abirdword:  He bought me crocs one year because I said I wanted shoes lol they were SO ugly and had a weird plaid print on them lol 

I promise that his fashion sense has gotten better over the years! This was the same man who wore basketball shirts and graphic tees every day hahaha

@mrspinesol:  We thought maybe they were the scraper things like that at first but no. They were too awkwardly shaped on the end.

DH sent me a couple of excited texts saying he had a gift for me and i was surprised (as not a special occasion) but happy. he did a big “tada” type thing and i looked and it was a rock. so i said thankyou and looked baffled…and he said very excitedly “its a fossil!!” to which i continued to look baffled as frankly i have no interest in fossils whatsoever (and he had no reason to think i would). I tried my best to fake enthusiasm but it was a bit obvious haha

@abirdword:  DH is an awesome gift giver, but one time he gave me a huge basket of artisan goods. It was all amazing, except for a jar of marmalade- I don’t like marmalade at all!

I just try not to mock my partner’s efforts to be thoughtful. He appreciates it – you don’t have to 😉

He gave me this gold necklace.. it was pretty pricey so I felt awful but it was painfully ugly. 

 

I had an ex give me a spongebob shower radio. It was a little plastic spongebob showering behind a little curtain in a bathtub. -_- 

 

ETA : one year he decided he was going to buy me a lipstick. He went looking for some, and had no idea there was different kinds or different colours. He said the lady at the counter looked at him like he was from mars and he just left totally embarassed lol. Poor guy.
