Freebie Friday: Tell Us Your Worst Holiday Gift, And We'll Send You A Better One

So now that it’s Christmas night and you know the lay of the land, giftwise, we want to know how you fared. This is seriously one of our favorite parts of the year: Everyone has suffered through an awful present (or five), and we like to come together here on SheFinds to share our disappointments.

When the contest ends, we’ll give a deserving worst-gift recipient a fabulous box full of beauty products from our closet.

To enter, just sign up for our newsletter, then leave a comment below about the worst gift you’ve ever received (though we’re particularly interested in this year’s clunkers).

Some of our favorites from last year:

“One year my husbands rather well to do grandmother gave me an Avon $1.99 roll-on men’s deodorant in a small brown lunch bag for Christmas.”

“I received a ‘will maker’ you can do on the computer from my husband…yikes!”

“We have a fruit cake that has been passed around in gift exchanges for going about 6 years now…I was lucky enough to get it this year.”

And if you don’t have any qualifyingly awful presents…congratulations. Your mom/boyfriend/roomate is a better listener than ours.
