It's the thought that counts, right?

What is the most poorly thought-out Christmas gift you've ever received or given?

Gotten: A box inscribed "For the man who has everything". Inside was a belly button brush. What exactly would you do with that?

Given: Sexy underwear to a friend which immediately led his partner to believe that we were having an affair!

I could think of some klunkers. Sometime, I think they were re-gifts of junk they didn't want either. The absolute worst was a raindeer figure that dispensed candy from it's...umm...anal area when you moved the tail....yuck. Then there was the cheap or odd clothes, especially sweaters, I wouldn't dare wear or didn't fit (after a while in the closet, they went to The Salvation Army). I really cannot think of any 'worst' present I have ever given. One way to prevent disaster, at least among the family, is to exchange gift lists including particular items, sizes, styles of thing you want or need.

When you're a kid, a present of socks and underwear are nearly guaranteed to ruin your Christmas.

Consequently, that's precisely what I've TOLD my nieces and nephew I'm getting them...

...instead of letting on about the XBOX they'll actually be getting from me and Aunt Jamie.  Big grin

I have just remembered that although I did not give the gift personally, there was a far worse gift that I had given.

I was fed up with my flat mate drinking all the Scotch I normally brought and not buying or paying for a new bottle when it had run out. I thought that I would teach him a lesson so I filled an empty bottle up with cold tea and sealed the top.

His parents came round just before Christmas and as they were leaving, my flatmate gave them the bottle of Scotch that I had filled with the tea and said that it was a small gift from both of us. At the time I did not know whether to admit my 'crime' or to keep quiet. I choose to keep quiet. Strangely enough, I never heard anything further about it and just hope his parents did not remember where the Scotch came from!

Hey man, I got one of those and I couldn't stop laughing, I thought it was great. I still have it somewhere. Time to get it out again for Christmas.

Gotten: a bright red sweater that I never wore.

Given: My mom was a big Am. Idol fan. I told her that she was getting an Am. Idol CD. She was horrified to find that I actually bought her the William Hung CD! I don't think she has ever listened to it.

Yes.

Although i'd suggest razorblades would be a more accurate description.

A little cone with a stick that you push to make a clown pop out. I was about 9 or 10 when I got it from my mom's friend. I literally threw it out after I finished visiting her.
