OK mine started out as worst gift ever, but turned out to be cool.

When I was like 14 or so, my cousin's Grandma (who we always celebrated holidays with) gave me this styrofoam wreath shape with multicolored Christmas ball ornaments hot-glued all over the front of it. It was so ugly, I was like but, to be polite I just said thanks, and set it aside.
Everyone kept asking me if I liked it, and things like "Oh that was so nice of her." I thought they must be crazy or something. Finally, someone mentioned to me that I might want to pull the top part off of one of the balls, and inside each ball was a $1, 5, or 10 bill! I made out like a bandit and felt like a total moron.

    i can't think of anything specific, but i just don't like knick-knacks, so if I ever get one ... I'll likely hate it! lol

                OH MY GOD!!! I see those all the time in stores. They seriously creep me out. Who would want one of those. And more importantly what sicko thought it would be a cute idea to make them!?

                My worst gift. A flower patterned sweater vest. Ummm, can we say, so not my style?!

                  what is with people and ceramic avocados?! LOL

                  this isnt my worst gift, i will have to think about my own but my FSIL for christmas this year received quite the doozy.

                  their rich aunt gave her a set of 6 body butters - doesnt sound so bad yet but just wait.... so first, theres a sticker on the back of the packaging that says "SAMPLE NOT FOR SALE". 1st strike, because she knows it was re re-gifted. then she opens up the package, opens the body butters, and each of the containers is totally empty, LITERALLY NOTHING INSIDE! so not only did she get a twice regifted present from a rich aunt who couldve afforded to at least give her cash instead of a piss-poor regift, there wasnt any GIFT even in the regift box! she was sooooo pissed. my FMIL called her brother the next day and was like do you know what your wife gave my daughter for christmas?
