        It was back in the late 70's (showing my age now)  and my husband at the time's Aunty and Uncle came to our house for Christmas along with all my husband's family.

        We were sharing the presents and this Aunty handed me a gift and said this is especially for you.

        It was a plastic coat hanger. 

        My husband got £20 from her which was a lot of money in those days.  Can you imagine how embarrassed I was...in fact I'm blushing as I write this.  I thanked her like it was the best gift anyone could ever receive and she never knew how upset I was.

        I know we should all be grateful for everything we receive as a gift and its always "the thought" that counts but it struck me that she had forgotten me and couldn't think of anything else so wrapped up the hanger.  I think I would have preferred it if she had just given me a christmas card.

        What was the worst or most useless Christmas pressie you ever got?

        Oh Blue: What a story!!!  

        It reminded me of a time I recieved a gift from my sister.

        It was a single towel. Cheap in quality, and didn't match a thing I already had.

        It was a gift that took no thought or time, and I will never forget it.

        When I shop, ecspecially for family, I really try to put a effort into who they are and what they might like. Obviously, not all family is the same way.

        Pots and pans - chain the little woman to the stove.  I really dislike "kitchen" gifts too.

        omg Pam - a single towel.  Thats awful and from your sister too.  You must have been really hurt.

        Oh and mamrone, 2 pounds of coffee.  Whatever were these friends thinking.

        13- I had to take out the bad language.  Sorry.  But I truly understand how hurtful that must have been.

        My ex-boss (extremely wealthy elderly lady) gave me a used set of napkin rings.  At that time I was making 8 dollars an hour.  What was I going to do with napkin rings? 

        I know they were used because I saw them on her table! 

        She was also the queen of regifting.  Each year at the company christmas party white elephant exchange she would bring a gift she had received from one of us the prior year.  Talk about cheap.  Ugh...

        lmao Shelli.  It helps to have a good memory thats for sure.



        Deffo cheap Amy - I don't know anyone who uses napkin rings except maybe the odd posh restaurant.  Used as well - its just awful.

        lol...my bro in law and I used to give eachother the same Barry Manilow album (vinyl) each year.  He'd give it to me one year and I'd give it back to him the next.  Secretly I like Barry Manilow but wasn't going to admit it to him at that time!

        Hiya Members,

        Yes, i know its the thought that counts. But we all have gotten a gift and thought to ourselves....."are you kidding"!!!!

        The worst present i ever received was an iron. Oh not just any iron. The box was yellowed it was so old. I really think the iron was in her attic since 1972!!! When i opened it and saw the yellowed box i was actually embarrassed for her. I graciously smiled and said my thanks.

        In my mind i am thinking.........does she not know that i can tell this is from 1972??? Hey, maybe its an antique and i am sitting on a gold mine......lmaooooo!!

        What is the worst present you ever got?

        Lips
