What's The Worst Christmas Gift You've Ever Been Given?

It's the thought that counts. And these thoughts were clearly troubled.

1. The gift of a dad joke.

"When I was 11, I really wanted a mobile phone. When it got to Christmas Day, I opened all my presents, and still no phone. I was pretty gutted.

"Then my Dad was like, 'Here's your main present!'

"I unwrapped it and saw the box, only to realise seconds later it was in fact a toy replica of a phone; its only function was playing three different horrible jingles.

"He thought it was hilarious."

—Ben

2. A really sucky present.

"A vacuum. It really sucked.

"Just kidding. I'm an adult and asked for it. It was actually a terrible vacuum though. Never worked on rugs."

—Ashley

3. Their whole relationship in a nutshell.

"My ex-boyfriend carved a nut into a heart-shaped charm for my Christmas present one year. At the time, it was the sweetest thing. So I wore a nut charm around my neck for a year...until it rotted. Much like our relationship."

—Julie

4. A gift that kept on gifting.

"My dad gave me a jumper for Christmas that I had given him the year before. Not the same kind of jumper, mind you. The selfsame garment.

"It was...awkward."

—Eric

7. A gift that proves it's the thought that counts – and his thoughts were clearly dismal.

BuzzFeed

"A key ring with the name 'Anna' on it because it was 'close enough'. We are not friends anymore."

—Amna

8. The $1 gift that ended up costing thousands.

"We gave our dog one of those squeaky toys that's shaped like a steak. While we were getting on with opening other people's presents, we noticed she was really quiet and not in our faces like usual.

"She had basically eaten the entire steak. A plastic squeaky toy steak. Inclusive of the squeaker. That she had to have surgery to remove."

—Natalie
