What is the worst gift you received....
« on: December 25, 2012, 03:21:28 pm »
I know that it's the thoughts that counts but check out what I received from my Mother-In-Law.  A $5 Starbucks card and when I check online to register the card, the balance is actually $1.75.  It's probably someone gave it to her then she used it then give it to me.  That's my Mother-in-law folks... Mrs. Cheapstakes and I don't get along with her.

A tie. There's nothing wrong with a tie, but if that's what everyone gives you all the time then it's a problem. It's not like I don't have any ties, I must have about fifty of them.

I can't think of a worst gift.  I guess I am lucky.

If it's a card where they start deducting money from it after some time has passed without use, she might not have realized it.  Someone might have given it to her and maybe she doesn't go to Starbucks or thought it might be better appreciated by you.  I don't know her so I can't say for sure but she might not have meant to do that intentionally, she would probably be really embarrassed if she knew the balance had dropped to $1.75.  I would think it best not to tell her and appreciate the $1.75 unless she has a history of this sort of thing...if you know for sure that she did it on purpose I'd let her know that "NO" gifts would be better appreciated.

I wouldn't say it was the worst gift I ever got.  I was pregnant at Christmas time in 1987 and all my gifts were for the baby to use when he was born.

A night in jail! I was goin through a divorce, I went by the house to drop off presents, my wife and I got into it, you know the rest. It wasn't a good year for me at all. Thanks for the memories! :(

T-shirts probably in the wrong size. I once received a used piece of clothing from my mother in law, which was probably the only gift she ever gave me. After that, I made it clear, that I dont expect any gifts.

I don't think I ever did receive a worst gift - I generally appreciate everything I'm given, and enjoy it.

I got lucky this year too.  Nothing terrible LOL.  The adults in my family decided last year to stop exchanging gifts and just buy for the kids so it took a lot of the strange gifts out of the picture.
