The worst gifts...

Recommended Posts

I know we've had a similar thread, but...

What are the gifts you just can't stand to get?

For me, it is always those little packaged food boxes. Like the Pepperidge Farms boxes with the sausage, cheese, etc.

I've never liked them and usually get at least one per year. Got one today from LL Bean which may have been the biggest waste of money I've ever seen.

I don't know what it is, but those things just tick me off to no end. It is as if the giver thought so little of you, so we'll just get you some crappy food.

All I can say is Bah Humbug, can't wait for Christmas to be over.

That's easy for me to answer, underwear.  I like my old underwear with all the holes.  Who needs new underwear? ;D

I wish someone would get me underwear.  Last I got were from the in-laws 2-3 years ago.

Need to keep an eye on JC Penny so I can stock up again.

I love those little pepperidge farm snacks.Somebody used to give them to my parents too and i was the only one eating from it.

They ain't cheap either....About $50 worth of stuff in it.

Wrong fishing tackle.

I wish they would ask me what tackle I need or want before going out and buying "pretty" stuff, some of which is for salt water fishing.

;D   ;D   ;D

Last year I received maybe my greatest gift ever .... about 50 pairs of Jockey Boxer Briefs. My grandparents live by a Jockey outlet and they were discontinuing this particular line that I really like. They were selling them off for $1 a pair. My grandparents bought every single one they had. The biggest heaviest package under the tree that year was for me. Full of underwear. Loved it!!!!! Brought a tear to my eye. ;D

On a side note my grandpa is really into vest coats.  Me ... not so much.  He tries to get me one about every other year.

Burley, how can you hate the summer sausages with the cheese?!?!?!

I thrive on that stuff.  My GF's dad just gave me 2 huge venison sausages and I've been devouring them 24/7

I'm not a big fan of the Omaha Steaks.  One of my relatives sends that to us every year.  I would rather go out and get a fresh filet.

My Mom bought me a sweater every year for Christmas.

I live in Florida.

What the heck am I supposed to do with them?

Anybody want to buy some sweaters? :D

You know guys.  I can't think of anything as a bad gift.  As a teacher, I get tons of cheap little "nothing" gifts like you mention.  But, the fact that they thought about me and the gesture of the gift is special.  I guess if I worked for a billionaire and got a cheese gift pack, I might be dissapointed, but not angry.  Just my .02

My ex's family used to get me this crap from wally world.  They knew nothing about fishing so they would pick me out the stuff that caught their eye.  So I usually ended up with pink crap.  My secret santa person is going to end up with some of it.  I threw it in with the rest of the stuff I got him. Sorry :(

Jewellery or whatever the man equivalent term is.

I don't wear it, so why do you think I want to get a chain or bracelet thingy for Christmas?

Thankfully this stopped after I got married.  Now its all about trying to get the bait monkey to pay my wife and the outlaws a visit before the holidays.  ;)

I hate when I get some cheap @$$ tools from Big Lots. My mother in law buys me cheap tools every year. WHY  I break em as soon as I touch them. MY van is full of Rigid tools so don't buy me cheap ones.

Working in an elementary school, I have received some bizarre gifts. The worst by far was a gift pack of Brut cologne and deodorant. Normally, I like Brut, however the cologne was half empty as was the deodorant. I was still touched by the thought.

Chaddy, that's exactly what I said.  But mine were worse, they were tube socks!

Booten, what can't you figure out?  The Gene Autry part or using a cassette from the old days. :)

I had a cousin buy me a Gene Autry cassette tape a couple of years ago. I still haven't quite figured that one out...

Why not?  You look like a Gene Autrey type of guy.
