Worst Christmas presents?
So we’ve had the best presents, now for the worst.
Not me, but a good friend bought his wife a sat nav. She wasn’t very happy about this and was a bit upset. Still, he thought, I’ve got a banker with the second present…
He also bought her a LadyShave.
She cried. Lots. And they were at her mum & dad’s house at the time too LOL!Posted 2 years agoP-JayMember
I’m not complaining, but last year I had a spice rack for Christmas, very handy it was too, I use it pretty much everyday – but only because I do all the cooking in my house – it was like “here’s something to help make your work at home better”.
In fairness, it was my own fault, I’m “impossible to buy for” and we were all but broke because my wife was still on maternity leave – but it’s the cooking version of an ironing board isn’t it?
Anyway, sticking to the basics this year, expensive sparkly stuff for her, expensive consumer electronic gadget for me.Posted 2 years agoMalvern RiderMember
Those insincere ones from ppl who never knock on yr door or even pick up the phone all year to ask how yr doing, yet dutifully buy a bargain a few days before Xmas. Receipt of which makes me do a fake smile, so I blame them for that as well.
A onesie from someone you love (reciprocally) is a joyous thing.
Similarly: ‘It’s real soapstone!’ Whatever – if it comes with a real smile it melts my heart.Posted 2 years agojateMember
My sister once bought me a ball of string and a bar of chocolate.Posted 2 years ago
To be fair she was quite young at the time.
Oh and when I first started on my journey in the world of work, my parents bought me an umbrella as they thought that was the sort of thing I would like. It wasn’t.tthewSubscriber
Once got the missus a onesie as a joke present, you know bit of cheery bantz on christmas morn, all good fun innit?
I always get MrsT something stupid for Christmas. Grow your own Jesus and a walking wind-up nun that spits flames were particular highlights. I’m not telling what this years is, it’s a surprise.Posted 2 years agoSmudger666Subscriber
Father in law is getting on a bit, physically and mentally but always manages to help,out at the local xmas fair on the second hand book stall.
He always waits till clearing up,starts and then grabs the free books that are left at the end.

My Mum gave me this kind of thing for keeping keys in, possibly, nobody could tell exactly what it was, some kind of useless wallet in cheap imitation beige leather. She hadn’t wrapped it either, and it came with a free passport photo of a complete stranger.
Another time she gave me one of those caps with a built in solar fan, which didn’t work at all and one of the blades had snapped off.Posted 2 years agoTheLittlestHoboMember
I win this one. I have never EVER gotten a present from my parents that didn’t come with a hint of disappointment. Not because I am ungrateful but because I just could never fathom their thinking.
The year I was desperate for a ghetto blaster with tape to tape. I wished and wished for one. Imagine my face as my older brother who didn’t give a hoot about a ghetto blaster opened his brand new ghetto blaster. I don’t remember what I got, I just sat and watched him with his new ghetto blaster.
My 18th Christmas was a rather impressive 20 pack of boxer shorts.
My 21st Christmas was one of them porcelain shell sets for your soap to sit in for the bathroom. I later found out my mum won the set at bingo in Blackpool.
We do lists with my kids and it seems to work very nicely thank youPosted 2 years agoboriselbrusSubscriber
A friend of mine was asked by his parents what he wanted and being a kind and generous sort of guy who didn’t need anything he asked them for a charity goat. You know the thing where you donate to charity and they buy a goat for an African family.
I’m not sure if they misunderstood, or just didn’t listen properly, but you know what’s coming…
My mate lived in a third floor flat.
Thinking about it I never did find out what happened to the goat. I must ask him next time I see himPosted 2 years ago
