Considering that the holiday is almost here - have you ever received a gift that was completely useless, ugly, horrifying or made you want to strangle the person in the wrapping paper?

My ex would buy an appliance we did not need up to 6 months BEFORE xmas & deem it my gift . He was such an... too many words and certainly not PG rated lol

I am not big into girly type junk, so jewelry, perfume, flowery crap and dressy clothes are pretty much useless to me. Of course, no one has really gotten me anything for Christmas for awhile, so....

Dum-dum never bought me anything for holidays or bdays and the other kids dad never seemed to understand I hated jewelry and flowers.

Dh gave me vacuum cleaner bags from the dogs one year.

Last year, MIL gave me a book titled "Sex Is Not the Problem, Lust Is". Yep, in a pretty gift bag and all.

Wow - you all win for bad gifts!! LOL

My mil (step MIL really) wins usually around here. Last year they gave dh and his sisters $300 in cash each, and I got a $50 gift card to Marshalls. I never go to Marshalls.

It's like a sad joke too, because she gave me a gift card to same store on my birthday. She always says how much she loves Marshalls. LOL - apparently.

LOL on the glamour shot gift.


Mine is going to sound dirty, but it's not. I really did not enjoy the back massage wand dh gave me one year. The gift giving got much better when his buddy sold his part of the local radio shack store, because all my presents would come from there.

I literally LOL!

I can't really think of anything uniquely terrible. Dh's grandmother gave me some ugly avon jewerly one year. It was nice of her to think of me but the pieces she choose didn't really fit my style at all. I seriously think she re-gifted
