I'm not talking about someone just giving you something randomly, like the clap, I mean something you received at a time for normally receiving gifts. i.e. Birthday, Christmas, Wedding, etc...

The thread from a couple of days ago about a crappy present gave me the idea for what seemed worthy of it's own thread. I'll recant the story I posted there that was lost in oblivian for starters.


College roomate (4 bedroom house with 4 guys) gave me a present for my birthday which consisted of a card and a pack of Starburst candy and another candy bar. I didn't expect anything from a roomate for my birthday so I thought it was a nice gesture.
I later found out that this roomate had stolen several checks from my checkbook and wrote 21 checks signing my name to the tune of $600. One of those checks was written for the purchase of afore mentioned card and candy...



So, what's the worst gift you've received? (other than nothing)

Over 20 years ago a GF gave me a suit for Christmas. I had no need for a suit really and was pissed about it. Said nothing and went home early on Christmas eve. Was given a game controller for Christmas, joystick for a computer for playing games. I didn't have a computer at the time nor did I play games. For a wedding present, (been divorced 20 years now) somebody gave us an electric knife. It's still in the back of my cupboard in the original box unopened. WTF am I gonna do with that?

Wedding gift: a massive, super-heavy, solid-brass table ornament of one hand putting a wedding band on another hand.

Some time in high school I was given a rocking chair for Christmas. There was no room in my bedroom for a chair. It didn't fit with the furniture for any of the family rooms. The specialty shop where my mom got it didn't accept returns. So it sat in our attic until I moved into my first apartment about four years later.

Even worse, it broke within the first month of actual use. The seat wouldn't stay bolted to the frame and, while rocking, would slide forward enough to fall off the supports and drop the person and seat on the floor.

For Christmas one year I received rusted iron wind chimes. From my mother, no less.
She thought they looked like 'art'.

Nevermind that I live in a place I couldn't hang them, even if I wanted to.

My sister had the idea of having everybody in the family give my wife and me a Christmas ornament at our first Christmas get-together after we got married and got our own place. We got some seriously hideous ornaments. One was a pair of gold-glitter-covered shoes. Who puts shoes on their Christmas tree?

I got a $10 Starbucks gift card at work right when they announced their "please leave your guns home" policy. I wanted to take it to the range & shoot it but the local range has a "please leave your cameras home" policy. I figure I can probably use it to open a lock or chop up some rails or something...

Good question, I am not sure what became of them. Maybe she kept them and found a man that liked them. She did move to Austin.

$25.00 gift card to White Castle
Nearest location would have had me driving from Arizona to Kentucky.

Took it to one of those exchange machines, turns out the card had never been "activated"(or some such) and was worthless.

a lady my wife knows got us a ultra expensive plate/platter

its gigantic, it looks like melted glass, its covered in glitter
it cant hold anything due to not having any sides
it cant hold anything you like because it gets glitter all over everything
and it was $$$
I guess you would hang it on the wall as art, but it is ugly as sin
currently it sits on our fridge holding dust

It's probably a charger for a serving platter. That would be a decorative plate that you put under the useful one for some unknown reason. No purpose other than decoration. More common for dinner plates, but I suppose you could have one for a serving platter.

3 Xmas ago wife (now ex) gave me a miniature air hockey table that looked like it came from a gas station.

The next year I got an ugly ass shirt from some discount store that literally shrank to fit one of my daughters after one wash.

IIRC, I spent over $1K on her both of those years


She told me about he wanting a divorce a couple weeks later (the day after my older daughters bday)

She was a stone cold bitch and I'm glad I'm rid of her.

This thread makes me miss sevenmarythree.

The *worst* one I ever got was a single purple pillow case at my wedding shower. It was from some little old lady friend of the family and maybe it was all she had to give. Makes me tear up.

She certainly didn't have to get a gift at all but she did and she got herself dressed and came to my shower without even really knowing me. I'll never forget that one purple pillow case.
