 but I figured it would be fun to do again since we've gained a lot of new members since then.  What is the worst Christmas present you ever got?

The "free gift with purchase" that you get at the makeup counter.  Not the actual purchase, just the cheap gift.

It has to be the time I got a cheap plastic "box" of perfume samples, not any recognizable perfume names, and they all smelled like they had been in a hot car for a loooong time.  The box was like what holds the candy in a Valentine's Day heart, with a clear plastic sleeve that was warped and it made SO MUCH noise when I tried to pop the tiny, tiny bottles out fo their places.  Horrible gift and certain it came from flea market.

Picture this...9yo

Christmas eve ...the tree has what seems like a million presents under it.  The biggest has my name on it.  ..its hard, everyone has touched it and tried guessing what it could be.  We know its in a box and its contained something that isnt heavy.  I guessed swingball..and was bursting to open it, so E.X.C.I.T.E.D!!

fast forward to christmas day.  Opening the presents began after breakfast.  Breakfast gobbled onward!!!!!   

Opening all my presents was slow and I purposely waited to open the big one last....the anticipation was killing EVERYONE hahahahaha.   Edges opened....saw large white box ...hmmmm not swingball...opened the box and ...oh god the deflation ...honestly I think you could hear all the kids heads collectively saying "wtf is that!?!?"

A lifesized hand knitted blue and white clown with a crazed skewered look due to the wool being pulled to one size.

That fucker haunted me for years!

I can't remember what I wrote last year, but my grandmother (God rest her soul) would buy us the nastiest smelling perfume when we were teens. My MIL also made me the ugliest purse ever one year.

 My grandma gave an blue sweater with a kitten playing with a ball of yarn when I was 12. She also gave me earrings, my ears weren't pierced.
