It’s a busy time of year, money’s tight and I get that but please know it is far better to show up empty handed than to give a bad gift.
You can trust me because I have years of experience in this department.
Here’s my top 10 list of the worst gifts we’ve ever received.
#10. A cheetah print plastic toilet seat. With a crack in it. Pretty sure it was .. used.
#9. Big Mouth Billy Bass (the singing fish). (pictured above).
#8. A ceramic dog that lit up and barked rabidly when anyone neared it.
#7. For me: neck-to-toe flannel footie pajamas accompanied by a similarly dressed teddy bear; I was already a mother of 2 when I received it.
#6. A donation in my name to an organization I don’t support. And am now on their mailing list. Fantastic! Thanks for that!
#5. A half eaten box of Valentines chocolates.
#4. A crib toy for our youngest, who, at the time, was 5.
#3. A shattered Christmas candle opened on .. you guessed it – Christmas day.
#2. A used baseball hat complete with head-sweat ring.
You can’t make this sh*t up!
And the #1 worst Christmas gift ever?
#1 A broken glass gravy bowl that had been glued back together. I don’t know about you but at my house…Gravy’s served HOT.
Do tell: what’s the worst Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
