Worst Christmas Gifts Ever

Sure, it’s the thought that counts, but our Facebook fans have received some hilariously weird Christmas presents, including everything from painfully tacky sweaters to half-eaten goodies!

 

 

“One year my mother gave me a light pink rabbit fur poncho. 1) I have not worn pink my entire life. 2) I am allergic to rabbit and my mother knows this. And 3) Um… it was a PONCHO! I will never forget that my girlfriend, who was with me when I opened it, casually took it away from me and said, ‘Friends don’t let friends wear ponchos.’”

“A mouse candle. The mouse was glued to a real mousetrap. When you lit the candle the mouse appeared to be melting… So gross yet funny, all at the same time.”

“Fake hair — so bad that it looked kind of like Barbie hair. And it came with a hairbrush that couldn’t brush even it… and a furry hair ponytail holder. Yep, it was bad.”

“I was pregnant and got pants-extenders. I was well aware that I was getting bigger but just didn’t want a Christmas gift to remind me. They were the complicated button kind, too.”
