So I thought I would go for the opposite and see what everyone's worst ever present has been - sure there will be some funny anecdotes behind some of them as well.

Doesn't have to be Christmas related just what is the worst ever present/gift you have received?

Used address book (with someone's addresses written in pen)
Postman pat board game for 3 year old when I was about 15.
Out of date box of after eights (the chocolate had turned white)
A hardback book on fountain pens.

Other gifts to the family from the same person;

Dad got her dead husband's used slippers and hats (yes, plural).
Tablecloth which was her dead husband's ex-wife's family tablecloth which had a horrible embroidery of dogs chasing stags and mauling/eating them 'embroidered by blind nuns in the mountains of Italy' (the nuns and Italy part are no doubt true, I doubt the blind part).

She's in her sixties so not too old to be so out of touch.

She's arriving tomorrow and wants to do an early Christmas present swap. I'm practicing my 'that's nice' face. Fake it till you make it.

Still trying to rack my brain with this one, but I can honestly say I cannot think of a worst present I have had?

A present is what it is, a gift you receive from someone, large or small. expensive or cheap, that person has thought of you,
Accept with pleasure and be thankful somebody does think about you.

Sorry, No worse present for me.

Merry Xmas to All You HUKDER's

Cardboard compendium ... I used to get one every year from my aunt when I was a child. What made it worse was that she was the wealthiest relative.

Mine is the 27th. I think that we get held back Christmas presents masquerading as birthday presents. It's pretty annoying when nobody wants to do anything with you for your birthday as its "too close to Christmas".

Was asked if I wanted a "coat" for xmas, I said "no", then shopping "do you like that coat", my response "no".....Xmas day comes along and it was that coat. If I'd had a lighter/matches/naked flame/flamethrower within reach I'd have burnt it. Then I had the pleasure of taking it back in all the sales rush.

Ha ha ha ha..... sorry I shouldn't laugh but that was funny you must have been distraught when you finally realized there was no console.

A dog frame with my picture in it from a 'friend' on my 18th birthday, there was no thought or care behind it, she was just a nasty piece of work and I removed her from my life fairly sharply.

For my WEDDING my SISTER gave me a cheap & nasty £2 photo frame with a piece of map cut out (map centred around where we got married).
Moderately ok idea. AWFUL execution. Still cross.

Not me, but many years ago I was in a computer game shop (can't remember which) and heard a conversation between a couple.

Mum: He wants a Super Nintendo.
Dad: Hey look, that Master System is cheaper, shall we get him that instead?
Mum: Ok then.

I remember thinking poor kid lol

I collect Swarovski crystal when I can afford it and have many pieces on display. My brother bought me a cheap nasty tacky glass ornament for Poundland for Christmas even though I had spent most of the year sorting out his problems for him. Needless to say I have slowly got him out of my life as I wont be used anymore. He spends £40-£200 pound in the pub every week and £1 on me. Once it was my daughters 4th birthday present and he rang on the mobile to say he had left something nice at the door for her while we were out. I rushed back home before it got taken to find a tacky carrier bag with a few mini chocolates in it from multi-packs, even my daughter was disgusted, reckon didn't cost him more than 30p. Oh and he has no friends - I wonder why??????

Well last year the MIL got me a jigsaw of penguins from £1 shop and a cheap mug with a picture of a mut on it. The year before she got me 2 ornaments of dog's from £1 shop buy 1 get 1 free as they couldn't get rid of them (didn't that tell her nobody liked them) I think there is a theme here somewhere???

Thing is I told her not to bother buying me anything at all this year because she is just wasting her £1, I would rather a lottery ticket.

A few years ago my sister got me this green box it had flowers on it and a weird lid lock. It has made a appearance again the other day as we where clearing out our utility room and it is now sitting in the kitchen, still have no idea what to do with it, I would toss it but as sure as eggs are eggs she will ask where it is if I don't have it anymore, she seemed to love it for some reason.

My list is endless with a dippy hubby... He bought me trainers that were a size too small as they were cheaper, pots and pans in a hideous yellow, a huge make up box (I don't wear make up) and an old lady's dressing gown. 10/10 for his effort though. These years I buy my own and he wraps them :)
