Worst Christmas Gifts

A gift list that would get Santa fired

Quote:
A Choice magazine survey of nearly 12,000 people found the worst present to give was an electric ice shaver, joking "apparently hairy ice isn't a big consumer issue."

"It never really worked properly and we always ended up with a big mess and not enough crushed ice to be worth the effort," said one person who owned an electric ice shaver.

A close second was an ice cream maker and the third was a foot spa.

A few years ago my brother told me "I didn't know what to get for you."

So he got me nothing.

I think the worst christmas present I got was from one of my married friends. Him and his wife gave me a jiggly silver w/glitter candle. I didn't have the heart to tell them I hated it.

Well...at least it fit.

....and didn't clash with anything else I had.

...and didn't have to be returned.

That's always the worst thing to get. But it's the thought that counts, right? RIGHT?

I don't know.... getting underwear and unwrapped (as in unwrapped from it's packaging) soap is pretty disturbing too.

Some strange gadget you have no idea what it's used for - but the giver just "loves it"
