5 Bad Christmas Gift Ideas People Actually Got

Christmas may have come and gone, and chances are you got a lot of wonderful gifts and maybe even some of the ones that were actually on your listshutterstock_221664037 this year. Maybe you got some beautiful Willow Tree Collection figures or something useful you have been asking for or many even some nice jewelry or a new video game you have been eyeing.

But if you got some less than great gifts take heart, you are not alone and to help you feel better here are five of the worst Christmas gifts people likely got this year:

Ugly Sweaters

The classic go-to gift of grandmas and well-meaning adults everywhere, the ugly Christmas sweater is a well-known and dreaded gift to unwrap on Christmas Day. Chances are you have gotten at least one of these or something very similar at least once and if not, your time is coming so be prepared! At least you have something for an ugly sweater party!

Vacuum Cleaner

Typically the gift well-meaning husbands give to their wives to make their lives easier, but this is a bad gift idea in every sense of the word. A great gift for your wife is jewelry, perfume, or something heartfelt, not something that reminds her of all the work there is still to do around the house because you are not pulling your weight!

Pencils and Pens

Pencils? Really — people actually give these as gifts to someone over the age of five? Unless it is a nice engraved professional looking pen or a set of art pencils most adults are not going to be thrilled with getting a gift that reminds them of their school days spent taking multiple choice tests and writing essays!

Glow in the Dark Toilet Seat

A glow in the dark toilet seat, who thought up this one? Sure, it’s practical in the sense you won’t have to turn on a light to go in the middle of the night, but do you really want to feel like aliens are about to abduct you when you walk into the bathroom at 3 a.m.? It’s best to skip the toilet gifts all together.

Socks

Coming in at number 1, socks are the worst Christmas gift ever — worse than ties because everyone seems to get them. Children have been getting socks as presents for hundreds of years and this has cause hundreds of years’ worth of tears.

So if you want to be the cool relative next year, consider you gift giving choices very carefully and go with something they will love like a Willow Tree Collection figurine from Coppins Gifts!
