Worst Christmas Gifts EVER!

As the saying goes, it’s better to give than receive. But choosing the right gift is tricky.. you might think grandma really wants that Tim Tebow jersey, but you’re probably wrong.

From time to time people get clueless and hand out presents so strange, so off-putting, you begin to question the entire relationship.

Is it just me or at some point in your life are you saddled with a ridiculious and awful Christmas present? Yeah, yeah, the holidays are all about the spirit of giving, but tell me what “spirit” is behind these little gems?

Yesterday I met up with an old friend who recently got married and had a baby. Her husband was going out of town for work Christmas weekend, so they’d celebrated their Christmas on Saturday. Here’s what her thoughtful counterpart bought her.

First of all, where in the world did he find this? And second, how this man was able to spell the word kegel blows my mind.

To say she was mad, would be the understatement of the year. For his sake, I hope the word ends in 2012.

Another awful present was presented to me by a much older friend who had been married for about 10 years. She told her husband she wanted something “special” and “thoughtful” this year.. as their usual presents to one another consist of their favorite series on DVD.

What does he get her?

That’s right- a scale.. which I’d consider neither special nor thoughtful. He said it was so the couple could “lose weight together.” ..Which she took to mean she had weight to lose in the first place.

These two are pretty bad, but I venture to guess there are others with stories like these out there. So what’s the worst Christmas present you’ve ever received?
