Mariah Carey famously sang; “all I want for Christmas is youuuuuuu.” And as nice as that is, let’s face it; we all want a few nice pressies to open on Christmas morning.
However some people get it wrong. And others get it REALLY wrong.
We asked our Facebook community what their worst or wackiest presents were. Here are a few of our favourites.
Alexis Law – I love chocolate and me and my hubby have a £50 limit for presents . On Christmas morning I came down to 50 £1 selection boxes. That’s all I got from him and I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry!
Audrey Spratt – My brother gave me a box of tea bags and a packet of French cheese for my 40th birthday- still in the Tesco bag too! I still haven’t worked out the significance…
Hannah Bee Griffin – My worst Christmas present was from my Mum when I was about 6 years old. She gave me a slinky. Fab you may think; but no. We lived in a bungalow with just one step leading out of the backdoor. I was not impressed at all.
Sarah Bates – I was given wine for my birthday – at 6 months pregnant!! Cannot wait to drink it mind.
Melissa Cannon – I asked for an iPad from my hubby and received…an EYE pad. To say I was disappointed on the day is an understatement. I should have known something was wrong when he asked… “Is that ALL you want…”
Julie DeeDee Banks – I was given a biscuit tin to keep dog biscuits in. We didn’t have a dog…
Elaine Savage – My mum managed to buy me a pair of men’s gloves, and when I commented she said that they looked a bit too small for me.
Lisa Williams – The strangest pressie I ever received was tummy trimming knickers and hair removal cream. Still to this day I wonder what was going on in my mother in laws mind.
Lorraine Anderson MSE – I got a personalised purse from my mum with my name spelt incorrectly on it.
Gillian Hinds – My mum bought me a toilet seat one Christmas.
Joanne Bean – My worst present ever was a box of (reduced) Christmas tree baubles…
Rob Baker – I once got a new kitchen bin from my nan…
Patricia Keys – I was given a frying pan from my hubby a few years ago
Gina Ackroyd – A pack of oven gloves !
Iain Maciver – I was given a toilet roll holder – can you believe it?
Amy Bondoc – An iron! Yup an iron! And I hate ironing !
Don’t be the person who gives these kinds of ‘gifts’ on Christmas day.
Nobody likes that guy.
You can do better than that.
Need an idea?
Think class and innovation…think exceptional mechanical design…think robots.
iRobot’s home robots are revolutionizing the way people clean – inside and out.
Be the guy who gives an iRobot this Christmas.
