16 people share the absolute worst gift they've ever received.


While it is truly 'the thought that counts' when it comes to gift-giving, sometimes family members, friends, or the coworker who selected you for Secret Santa can beautifully miss the mark...

So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What's the worst gift you've ever recieved?' people were ready to share the hilarious, confusing, passive aggressive or overall 'WTF' presents they've ever opened. Thanks for the lip waxing kit, grandma. The hint was received.


My mother in law gave me a blanket I had just donated 2 weeks before to Goodwill. She went there, bought it, and gave it to me like a new gift. Never realizing it had been in my home. Now I have to drive about an hour to donate anything for fear it will come back to my house. - scifilove


Happy meal Barbie. For my 20th birthday. From my boyfriend. It wasn't intended to be ironic. - RubixRube


Microscopes. Plural. I learned the hard way that if you're a 'nerdy' kid, apparently that means you love microscopes, and several people will give you them. Bonus points if you're not an asshole and you pretend to like them, because of course that means you want another identical one next year - Zaquarius_Alfonzo


My dad got me a water filter for my 11th birthday - aimless_dude


My old boss took me out to lunch on my birthday. At a place he picked. He then made me pay for myself. - SalAtWork


My mom gave me a cheese sandwich for my 12th birthday. And then tried to make it up by surprising me with a huge Valentine's day basket a few weeks later, which when she delivered to my room, she walked in on me looking at porn. My mom's great, she's just terrible at birthdays. - theganjaoctopus


My grandma gave me an electronic stapler and said 'Well, I know how you like electronic things.' - johnsonaustinj


My mother in law gave me a tube of Abreva in my Christmas stocking. - Leigh_Lemon


My mother in law pulled out a box in which there was a fire engine red nightgown and said in front of the family, 'This is what you'll wear when you conceive a son.' Yep.- lunchesandbentos


I have an uncle I don't really know who lives down south and thinks he's a cowboy. He would give me gifts of things he likes but I definitely did not. One Christmas when I was a kid, he gave me a detailed book about guns and a check for $8.56.

The next Christmas it was a horse calendar and a check for $17.02. Eventually we figured out that apparently he set out a $30 budget for my gift and would give the exact remainder as a check. He's weird. - EricksA2


One year my (now ex) boyfriend bought me a deck of Magic: The Gathering Cards. I had absolutely no interest in them prior to receiving them, and then he refused to teach me how to play the game. He took them with him when we broke up. - FortLagomorph


My Aunt got my sister a novelty toilet brush for her birthday. - Little-rolling-bean


My cousin gave me a picture of herself for Christmas. - [deleted]


One year for Christmas my dad gave me a notebook and pencils and told me Santa wants me to study more. I was 5. - thatindianchick


My girlfriend asked me if I wanted to see Mamma Mia. I said no. A few months later I got Mamma Mia tickets for my birthday. - BootyWhiteMan


My mother gave be a book for Christmas that I gave to her for her birthday a year before. She acted as though she purchased it for me. I wrote a note it it to her, so I know it was the copy I gave to her - j_truant
