So there was talk in another forum about the most horrid gifts that we've gotten...either from someone we know, or as a result of a "secret Santa" deal.

What better way to put everyone in a festive holiday mood than to post all the things that you've gotten for Christmas that you really could have lived without...

So please share horrid gifts that make you wonder "What the heck would make you think that is something that I want???"

That's actually kinda cool! What's crappy to one, might not be crappy for another! Great idea!

Well, I received that two foot tall statue of a hoot owl, (from another thread). I really don't believe it improved my life, (or my yard) any.

An umbrella with a built in LED flashlight on the end... I suppose it was a practical gift but it was odd.

They have a relationship with the Goodwill, so I'm guessing that's where the gifts will go.

Underwear from my grandmother-in law.

Practical, but, wow. Gives new meaning to "granny panties."

At least they were new.
