Default Your worst holiday gift ever?

Mine was a navy-blue turtleneck sweater from my then-boyfriend. It didn't take a rocket scientist to decipher the message. I ditched him and exchanged the sweater for something more fun.

I received a pair of used sweatpants from my college roommate. She didn't bother to wash them first so I had a little suprise in the crotch area .

Mine was a cheap Zippo knock-off lighter from my first roommate in college whom I had ditched after one semester. She knew I would be opening it up in front of my parents who didn't know I smoked! The funny thing is, we're still friends 35 years later and I'm going to a Christmas party at her house Saturday night.

Mine was from my supposed best friend who took a really hideous Victorian-patchwork-HIDEOUS stocking she had gotten from someone else in years past and filled it with a bunch of....well...used crap from around her house. It might have been okay if it was stuff I actually would have liked or used, but it was just bizarre, random stuff. A package of Rainbow Fish book plates. A small, obviously worn, stuffed parrot. An empty tin box. Need I go on? Regifting at it absolute suckiest. :P

My boyfriend in college gave me an $8 coffee grinder. A little box of chocolates, too. I think he shopped at Walgreen's that year.

Last year, my parents gave me one of these:


I remember thinking, "You have met me, right?"

One year my parents bought me this ugly shirt/jacket/sweater/creature thingie. It looked like the picked it from the Grandma collection. It was some ugly dark paisley. I still get sick thinking about it.

My friend got my crayons once. I didn't throw them away or anything, I used them (I still have them on a shelf in here somewhere...), but it was a pretty weird gift. :P

One year my husband gave me a pullover sweater vest. One like your granny would wear. But that wasn't the worst.

The next year, he gave me another one. Same thing, different color. I showed him the one from the year before with the tags still on it.

He doesn't buy me clothes any more.

My sister once gave me a DVD of a movie I had specifically told her I didn't like. The best part? She left the $4.99 Wal-Mart clearance sticker on it.

Sounds like roommates are the worst gifters so far.

I feel you on this!!

My husband doesn't know what my sizes are and isn't allowed to buy me clothing other than the random sweatshirt or t-shirt.

My mother is terrible at gifts. It would be easier to list the one gift she got me that I liked

I've gotten some strange re-gifts from my SIL.

One was a small tin of makeup meant to "smooth fine lines and wrinkles." It was obviously a regift because the original box the makeup came in was gone and the tin had been taped shut. Oh and I didn't have fine lines and wrinkles--I was a teenager.

The other was actually for my mom. It was in with a bunch of other bizarre regifts but this one took the cake--a single knife and the cardboard sheath had my SIL's stepmom's name written on it.

I got a few the first was from my grandma who got me a bunch of hair barrettes, when my hair was bob length.

And my Mother in-law is always gives the worst gifts period. And every year it just gets worse and worse. One year she got me this very horrid, large clown puppet. You know the ones with the strings? And with her, if there is something that we diffinately DONT want she will get it for us. I think she buys everything at the local gas station/cornor store.

Ha, it was a cappuccino maker I got from a Secret Santa gift exchange at my old job. It was manual (it looked more like a penis pump!) and it broke the moment I tried to use it.
