29 Gifts You Hated As A Kid But Would Love Now

Posted on

1. Bath & Body Works gift sets that no one really wanted.,

"YES! Shower gels!!!" —me receiving a Bath & Body Works gift set today.

Get them from Bath & Body Works for $27 (Japanese Cherry Blossom) and $37.50 (Twilight Woods).

2. Bobby pins and ponytail holders that are now better than gold.,

No more using the same stretched-out black rubber band that I've been using for five years? YES!!!!

Get them from Amazon for $4.96 (bobby pins) and $12.95 (ponytail holders).


5. Pajamas and onesies that were subtle reminders of your (very unfair and very early) bedtime.


9. Underwear that came into your life before you understood the joy of a five-for-$25 sale.


18. Double-feature DVDs that you probably already owned.


21. Gift cards for stores you didn't even like.

Dear Santa, please help my family realize that I want money and gift cards for Christmas. They don't have to buy me clothes that are three sizes too big. XOXO.

Get it from Amazon for $50.

23. Piggy banks that were adorable, but you already had about five of them on your dresser.


25. Bath sponges and gloves that were usually passed down to a younger sibling or parent.

26. Paint-by-numbers kits that were entertaining for maybe the first five seconds.

And then paint would inevitably get everywhere and you would get in trouble.

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
