Default Horrible gift ideas

Let's get creative.

I'm thinking...anti-cellulite cream.

Me, too! I was looking at a Groupon for it this morning which is what prompted the thought. But, it would be a bit awkward for someone to just decide you need it :-).

Would the laser work on the chia pet?

I'm also adding:

a grammar book;
a replica of the Trevi water fountain, to be used indoors (I'll let your level of sadism decide the scale);
a pidgeon you caught downtown for a pet.

I got this from a neighbor this year. It's like a big......pajama suit/play suit (pants and jacket) from the eighties. This is the same person who has commented on my smallness in the past (I'm not unusually petite, either).

Aw we gave gift baskets last year and one had all the fixings for a nice breakfast, including maple syrup. I thought that was a good gift. :shrug;


As for bad gifts, a puppy (or any animal) the giftee didn't want or wasn't expecting or planning.

One of my cousins actually got toothpaste this year.

She wasn't pleased.

I've done the breakfast gift basket, too. They loved it.

I've received the dog for a gift. I was seriously not pleased. I made the person who gave it to me take it back from whence it came from. At the time I was living 45 miles away from my work and was working roughly 10 hours a day. So that would have been 12 hours the dog would have been locked in a house. That's not fair to them.

I would have been ecstatic to receive a vacuum cleaner! Now, a used vacuum cleaner? Not so pleased. True story, people.

What about a year subscription to Weight Watchers? True story also.


Used sheets (yep, true story)
Lotion when the person who gave it to you knows you don't use lotion.
A power strip
A book on regaining your faith
Food storage
A car wash gift certificate...for a drive-thru car wash...the cheap kind
A ped-egg


Geez...my family is really bad at gift giving!

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Socks will forever rank #1, imo.

Dental care items are a no no for Christmas (and halloween).

Self help books.

Snuggies need to die.

A coupon for a free vajazzle (or do you buy your own kit and it's more of a DIY thing? I really have no idea).

I think the syrup is great as part of a gift basket. I'm sure she meant it would be odd if given separately...although, come to think of it, a friend once visited from Canada and brought me maple syrup and I was very pleased. Only time I ever had any, since buying them as imports here is pricey.
