Worst gift?

I love my dh dearly, but he is a horrible gift giver. One year he spent $600 on a 6 ft tall african teeke man, the thing was scary! I felt horrible, but I had to make him take it back.

So what are the worst gifts you have ever gotten?

  • We had a "white elephant" gift exchange one year and at the time my hubby chose the gift. He ALWAYS had to choose the biggest was a toilet seat! I could have killed him.....and his grandma who thought it was the funniest thing ever. I am not laughing.

  • My gift was not as bad as the previous answers, but my hubby bought me an expensive gold watch last year. It is very beautiful with diamonds, but it's gold :( I dont own any gold jewelry, never have and this will be the last peice I do own. Gold just isn my color, its always been silver, but occasionally i take it out and wear it, even though it clashes with my silver wedding set

  • Three years MIL sent a gift marked to my husband and I.

    I was VERY pregnant with our second son at the time.

    My husband opened the gift and promptly threw it across the room.

    I saw it...a book...a biography of Scott Peterson. You know...the guy who killed his wife when she was 8 months pregnant....

  • I don't think anybody can beat TiccledBlue's answer! My worst was an flimsy, "as seen on TV" electric sweeper! Of course it was from my MIL. I've never kept house clean enough for her. The 2nd worst was "cozy" socks.

  • Money in an unsigned card.
    I'm sorry, but when a close family member gives my husband and I a sum of money for Christmas in a card at the last minute (they ran into the bedroom and shoved it into a Christmas card when we arrived at their house Christmas day one year) then that shows that we really aren't thought much of at all.
