    My worst gift was in the mid 1980s from my stepmom. I was given two bottles of Ketchup. I like ketchup like most kids did then and now, but she felt I liked it more than most so she gave me my own bottles of ketchup.

    The worst Christmas gift I ever received was a bullet making machine from my first husband. I was shocked and of course gave it back to him . That was his plan all along. In hindsight I should have returned it for the money. This was not the last awful gift from him. On my birthday he gave me a Red Fox record (back in the days) which, if you are aware of Red Fox, was disgusting. Needless to say we parted ways after 8 years of marriage.

    A few years back I was looking to buy some land to hunt on. My wife bought me a certificate for two acres of land on the moon and gave it to me as a Christmas gift. When I opened the envelope and started to read it the first thing I noticed was the word acre and a huge smile came on my face I was over whelmed thinking she had purchased some acerage for me to hunt on. Upon reading the entire certificate of authenticity and taking a look at a map that was also included, I saw the land she purchased for me was on the moon. This is the worst gift ever to recieve. A good laugh was had by all.

    Right after my husband and I had gotten married, he had the bright idea to go Christmas shopping for me with a buddy of his. I thought it was very sweet until I opened m gift on Christmas morning. He had bought me a shirt that had to have been the UGLIEST shirt I had ever seen. It was maroon and black, and had sleeves that looked like wings. Needless to say he was so happy with himself that I couldn’t be mean so I would wear it when I knew I wasn’t going out anywhere.

    Well this is a Valentine’s Day worst gift. So it was my boyfriend and mines 5th Valentine’s Day together. So we each got home from work that night and decided to exchange our gifts! Well I torn into my gift all excited. To my surprise he bought me a SCANNER! For checking everytime the Fire Whistle goes off; meaning there is an accident/fire somewhere!! Nice thought on Valentine’s Day!! To his defense I did want one; maybe not for Valentine’s Day though……

  • ~My Brother and Sister In-Law gave me opened Pampers, puzzle’s with kids scribble on them all wrapped up with mouse poo in the bottom of the bag. I guess you can tell a lot about how someone feels about you by the gift they choose for you.

    the worst gift I ever received was from a previous employer.  I had worked for said employer for a number of years and had begged to telecommute, as most of the office did.  I telecommuted briefly then with a managerial change I was brought back to the office. My present at holiday time that year was a pad of paper with the boss’ logo.

    My mother in law once gave me a wrapped toilet brush that she bought at the dollar tree. I asked if if it was a gag gift, her reply was your wife complained that you don’t clean, so I got that as a friendly reminder. I told her well the wife is the one who does the cleaning, not me. Still has to be the worst gift I ever been given.
