A tiny Christmas tree with 3 bent branches and 1 ornament!

My dearest father once gave my two siblings and I a Christmas we will never forget when his bad taste in presents reached a new high.

My sister received a barometer, my brother a ship-in-a-bottle and I was gifted a leather waistcoat. After we had met him for the exchanging of gifts, we were hard put to decide who had gotten the most useless present - we were in fits of hysterics!

Our amusement was compounded as we recalled the look on Dad's face as he opened his gift from us - a garden ornament in the shape of gnomes holding hands in a circle. We had to hand it to him, he did a really good job of pretending it was a splendid present!

Here's a fun thing to do with bad gifts - have a "White Elephant" party!

My friend throws one of these around the Holidays every year, you bring a weird gift that no one would want - wrapped of course so no one can see what they are - and then someone passes them out. It's alot of fun!

At this party - I've actually gotten things I LIKED! Got a pair of multi colored candle sticks one time - I still have those.

Personally - I think the worst gifts I received were from my exH : everything from a scale to silverware. He once bought his Mom a new sink for her Birthday LOL.

Another BF bought me thong underwear for Xmas. Hey - those aren't for me - they are for you! Later I was at a friends house complaining about this, they were listening to a radio show about "bad gifts" and arm twisted me into calling in. I did and won a free dinner at a swanky restaurant

This year (yesterday) my mother got me a Superman "snuggie". Now, although I am an admitted comics geek, why on Earth she thinks a 43yr old man would be caught dead in this thing is beyond me!
But now I've decided that the next time I order Domino's I'm going to answer the door wearing it when the pizza arrives!
:













P.S.
In the first pic, make sure you scroll to the right to see the guy wearing it!!

That would all most be as priceless as slayer doing it in his Iron Man briefs

You could do both! Wear the Iron Man briefs with the "Snuggie" draped over the shoulders like a superhero cape!

Here's another weird "gift" -

I was just re - reading this thread looking for more stories - and I see now that my first post is now double posted. It wasn't when I did it, hours ago, I of course would've edited that.

How did this double post? Hours after I posted it? Hmmm.........

Whiffer Nippets must be the ATS gift that keeps on giving
