People React To The Shittiest Christmas Gifts

Because sometimes you unwrap a present and all that's there is disappointment. Make sure that's not the case with your gift-giving this year and give your loved ones Beats by Dre.

We asked BuzzFeed employees about how they'd react if they were to receive these 10 shitty gifts this Christmas. Here's what they had to say:


Hannah C.: You could have gotten me alcohol. YOU COULD HAVE GOTTEN ME ALCOHOL.

Tara: The fuck? What am I, 80?

Justin: Smile politely, cut the candle into pieces with a knife, put them in a bowl, microwave the bowl, then throw the hot wax at the gift giver, all without breaking eye contact.

Chris: Wow, thanks for trying to burn my house down.


Jen: Grandma, I love you, but we’ve been through this.

Casey: I would stuff my bra with this.

Leslie: Perfect for my “depressing thunderstorm” look.

Hannah C.: Good, my “2008 club owner” wardrobe has been in need of a refresh. Did you get me a trucker hat too?


Hannah C.: Point taken, Aunt Carol. Enjoy the weight-loss book you’re getting next year!

Casey: “Thank you, I’ll read it during dookies.”

Mandy: Instead of giving me this, you should just give a really mean look to my parents.

Chris: Does it finally teach me how to read?


Mandy: Great, there are like three Brazil nuts.

Tara: I’m allergic. Point taken. Better sleep with both eyes open tonight.

Chris: Guess who’s getting a nut tree next year?!

Justin: I'd smile politely while scattering the nuts around the living room as if I was blessing the place without breaking eye contact.


Hannah C.: Oh good, this should fit the dog!

Mandy: I’ve decided I’m Jewish now.

Casey: Gonna wipe my butt with this, thank you so much!

Justin: I'd smile politely, grab a single loose thread, and methodically unravel the entire sweater without breaking eye contact.


Hannah C.: Use it on the giver for its intended purpose…

Mandy: If you’re trying to call me a ball-busting bitch, just fucking say it to my face.

Casey: Scream, start crying, throw the nutcracker against the wall, and say, “NOOOO! Not again! Why won’t he just leave me alone already?”

Chris: Wait, were the mixed nuts uncracked? Because if so, this is very useful and considerate.


Kim: I’m actually not mad at this. I love coupons.

Mandy: Where’s the one that takes 50% off the time I have to spend with this family?

Hannah C.: Assume these are part of the wrapping, tear at them wildly, throw their tattered remains on the floor, and ask where my gift is.

Justin: Smile politely while rewrapping the coupons, crossing out the names on the gift tag, and immediately regifting this to the person sitting next to me...without breaking eye contact.

Casey: Look at the giver and say, “Have you ever seen Unfaithful?”

Mandy: I must free it. *smashes snow globe and scoops up whatever was in there and takes it into car and drives away*

Tara: Do I look like a virgin?

Chris: At least I don’t have to shovel it...I guess. But seriously, why would you do this to me?


Hannah C.: Touch the giver firmly yet tenderly on the shoulder, make intense eye contact, and say, “Thanks...but where I’m going, I won’t need these.” This will just haunt the fuck out of them.

Tara: Wait, I actually needed these. Thanks!

Mandy: Yeah, you never don’t need normal socks.

Chris: Good god, I’m not some hormonal teen. All right, fine, I’ll take ‘em, and I am.



Casey: Put the coal in the microwave. Meanwhile, ask the giver to lie facedown, then give them a hot-stone massage.

Hannah C.: Start acting affronted about the environment and bring this gift-opening sesh to politics immediately. It’s the only way to hurt them more than they hurt you.

Justin: Smile politely, stick these up my butt. One month later, poop out diamonds, and sell them on the black market...all without breaking eye contact.
