Hey gang! Christmas is coming so BuzzFeed Philippines asked Facebook and Twitter what's the worst Christmas gift they ever got. And s'yempre, we got very interesting results.

Let this also be a guide what not to get for your monito/monita, please lang!

1. A *very* practical gift:

A can of sardines and a piece of onion.

2. Something that requires a higher level of thinking to make sense:

Snacku and a soapdish.

3. The at-least-it's-useful gift:

4. A timely present and more:

Christmas lights and hair straightener na nabibili sa palengke!

5. A gift that just throws shade all around:

My aunt got me these two books one year, "Letting Go of Compulsive Eating" and "Daily Meditations for Recovery from Eating Disorders" completely unprompted.

7. The walang-day-off-si-inday gift:

Clothes hanger and laundry pegs.

9. A gift that just makes you feel like a placemat:

I had to do "exchange gifts" with a kid from school. So I asked to buy him like the latest power ranger megazord or something like that. And he got me a placemat and a pair of plain white socks. Not even kidding, I wanted to smack him with the placemat.

Zest-O and 5 pieces of colored paper.
