Your worst holiday gift ever?

(it looked more like a penis pump!)
A drink machine that looks like a penis pump?
Pink totally bendy don't work and just break tools. Pink........ I kid you not and tools........ That was the last time they ever made that mistake

My father got an awful one. My mom completely just forgot him. We knew she had gotten black sweats for my brother, she took one of those pairs and gave them to my father, unwrapped just handed them over. I can't believe they're still married.

oh wait one more, I got a swiffer one year. Is that a hint or just something to throw at them that won't hurt much?

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

My ex's family would sent the most god awful gifts ever. I can't think of one nice thing they ever bought us.

First it was a hideous $20 bedroom set from Walmart. I shudder every time I think about it. It was a south western theme and came with the matching skirt, pillow cases, etc. The sheets felt like tissue paper. The only time time we would use it was when they were coming to visit.

His family was bad about sending us blankets. I was always like, hello we live in the south morons! You may live where it snows but if you read the paper, watch the news, or ventured out of your house once a month you would know that the climate varies in different parts of the country.
One of the blankets was a kit...you know the ones that you have to knit or stitch yourself. It was so lame. A tiger. And one of the squares was upside down.

I felt sorta bad at the time because my ex would be so embarrassed cause my family sent awesome gifts.

I had a coworker once and she was dating a guy for about six months. It was their first Xmas together and he bought her a generator. It was actually one of those things you throw in the back of your car and you can use it for emergencies. I forget what theyre called.
That would have been a deal breaker for me. First Xmas presents should always be easy. Jewelry, perfume, dinner, etc...
Pretty much everything my stepmom has ever given me for Christmas. Some things that stand out are The Clapper, a Martha Stewart 2003 cookbook when it was 2005 (at least the ****-a-leekie recipe gave us a laugh), various crappy pieces of coral jewelry from various cruises my dad and stepmom had been on, this awful sweater with a crazy zig-zag pattern, my dad and stepmom's framed engagement picture, and a size large sleeveless top... with the way my dad gets so concerned about me being skinny you'd think the woman would have realized I wear a small.

Sorry that was so long. I'm a TAD bitter.

Oh, yeah. She gave my brother peanuts two years in a row. Not even nice peanuts, but regular old Planters.

Gloves. Nothing else. Just gloves - they weren't even great gloves. From a "boyfriend".

Buh - bye.

When I was 14, my grandpa and his wife gave me a sweater with a puppy on it. It was a children's large. I was in adult clothes. It was also see-thru and they left the price tag on it; from the Dollar General.

The worst gift I've ever seen someone else get is what my hubby got the first Christmas we were dating. My grandparents didn't know him well at all, but they knew that sometimes we went bowling as dates. Mind you, he's not a big bowler and he didn't have his own ball or anything. They were really grasping for something that he'd like, so they got him a bowling bag (for his ball that he did not possess). Only it was baby blue and looked JUST. LIKE. A. PURSE. He opened it and looked over at me like " " and I'm sitting there thinking 'OH MY GOD, Why did my grandparents just give my boyfriend a purse?!" I felt so bad for him.

ETA: These are different grandparents btw! Hehe. The first is my paternal grandparents, the second maternal. Just didn't want anyone to think that my grandparents are just horrendous gift-givers.
A family friend asked my mother if I read romance novels, and she said no, I didn't like them. So what did I get? A romance novel. It's not necessarily a bad gift, I was just peeved that she asked about it, my mother said not to get it for me, and she did anyway. I returned it.. maybe even that night.
Under construction.
I don't really remember any Christmas gifts. I do remember getting roller skates for Christmas when I was 12, but other than that? Nope.

I guess that means I've never gotten a bad Christmas gift.

As the OP I judge that a water bottle is worse than The Clapper. However, I could be persuaded otherwise....try me.
A yellow v neck sweater from my brother. It was the first Christmas that he was divorced & it suddenly became painfully obvious that his ex wife had always bought my presents up until that point!
Slinky's rule for NC.com:

I suppose I can't judge you because you married a serviceman and it is wartime. Boo hoo. You must be loney sitting at home with nothing else to do but pick on people. Why don't you go masterbate again?

A water bottle has zero entertainment factor.

Clapper.....
Water bottle......
