We just want to start by saying, of course we’re grateful for all the gifts we receive and know that there are people who are less fortunate than us. But even though your family and friends are supposed to be the people who “know you the best”, someone is bound to totally miss the mark on the gift giving. We took a poll of some SHEfinds staffers and readers to find out what was the worst gift they’ve ever received. We got some crazy responses that we couldn’t believe, like a used hairbrush (yuck!) and rubber gorilla mask (um…). A lot of these seem like subtle hints directed at the receiver (deodorant, diet books), and others are just plain weird (a toilet seat lid, Post-its with no stickiness). Someone got rug samples for Christmas when they were 11 years old. That’s basically like getting coal! Click the slideshow to see the worst holiday presents ever. Hey, at least you can get some ideas for what NOT to get your friends and family this year!
