This was a hard choice, the best of the worst gifts & winner of a Starbucks Gift Card is…. said…

My worst gift ever was about 4 years ago for Christmas. My mom and dad are really good at getting things that my siblings and I REALLY want so, we were expecting a really awesome Christmas. It turned out that way.. except for with me. My older sister got a car; my younger brothers got an Xbox, a Playstation 2, and some games; and I got a lovely…. *Wait for it*… TOILET SEAT! Yep, a toilet seat. My mom’s reasoning was that everyone else in the house had a comfy plush toilet seat except for me so, she thought I’d like to not get my butt cold every morning. Just so happened my then b/f (hubby now) was there for Christmas. Nice, right?

A cushioned toilet seat! From your own parents, the same year they give your sister a car! That is just WRONG!! Jessica, please email me with your address so that I can send you your prize. The two runners up are Abi & Christa. So if the winner doesn’t respond, then the prize will go to one of you.

Hehehe funny post 🙂

The worst presents…hm they’re usually from my Aunty, she’s a little (a lot) eccentric.

I remember one year, I was 12, she bought me knickers. Sloggi knickers – granny shaped knickers. The worst thing though, was that I was a UK size 8-10 and she got me them in size…… 18. And three different packs, so no mistake.

Worst gift was an identity bracelet from an ex-boyfriend with my name spelled wrong.

Honorable mentions go to Me & Julia, who said…

I worst gift this year….Nothing was too horrible (and there have been some doozies over the decades). I did however get a pair of home-made pajama pants. (I will be kind and not say who made them. But I will say..she’s not MY MOTHER) that are at least 3 feet too long, too tight at the knees, and cut off circulation at the waist while being baggy enough between my waist and knees to provide shelter to a 100lb watermelon. If I would have pulled them up far enough, they would have made for great maternity pants. (If one could get past the pattern of the fabric). Eek!

My worst gift ever was a matching pair of plastic jackalopes covered in a soft fake velvet, each about 20 inches in height. This was for real. They were wrapped with sincerity from the gifter like they were gold. And a jackalope is a rabbit with antlers on its head, for those who are not wise in the way of the prairie where an antelope “rapes” a rabbit. My brother laughed for an hour after I opened them. We could not make him stop until tears were streaming down his eyes… Meanwhile, I held this pair of…? what was I supposed to do with them???

I am kind of happy that I wasn’t the only one out there with bad gifts. HeHe. But some of you had some doozies. I swear I almost peed my pants reading the responses! And if I had the resources you would all get a prize, but sadly that is no the case. *sniff* But I thank you all for you entries, they really did put a little laughter in my otherwise, just curled up in bed being sick, day.

    What horrible presents- glad to say I never got such a doozy.

    Thanks for the nod. I am glad someone else found this funny. I do too now but at the time it was rather embarrassing.

    Those are some really really bad gifts! Thank goodness I’ve never gotten gifts like that. Although I’m sure my year is coming.
