So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What is the most underrated Christmas gift?' people were ready to share the helpful, thoughtful, and unique presents that deserve a better reputation. Justice for socks!
My grandmother paid my gas bill one Christmas. I thought that was a nice present. - misa9890
Premium subscription to something the person already uses the free version of. They're guaranteed to use it, and it's already something they've decided that they weren't going to splurge on themselves for. So as a gift, it's both a necessity and a luxury. I did this for my wife last year and she still talks about what a great gift it was. - Iron_Rod_Stewart
My mom always gives me a “care package” that includes: Toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent and trash bags from Costco. I look forward to that sh*t every year. I don’t have to worry about buying that stuff for a couple months. - butidonthave2
One year when I was pretty broke someone gave me a nice tote filled with non-perishables. I suddenly had a nice stockpile of stuff like soup, crackers, and cookies and on top of that had a tote to store stuff in when I emptied it! It was way more useful to me than a soap set or something else like that that they could have potentially given me. - Likeomgitscrystal
A blanket. I don’t care how many f*cking blankets I have, I’ll always appreciate another one. - floppleshmirken
A bidet, better than sliced bread - Think_History_5682
Socks. Anytime someone asks me what I want for Christmas/birthday I tell them 'fun socks' because they are usually inexpensive and I get to see what my friends/family think is fun.
It has gotten to the point that I've had friends who go on vacation come back with some crazy socks they found to gift me because they say the socks made them think of me. Fun socks is the way to go. - Lulupoolzilla
Pet toys. I love when people remember my kitties. - barbaramillicent
Nice comfy pajamas, never buy them for myself. - JoyIsADaisy
Extra phone chargers and wire organizers. I'll be damn glad I have an extra charger if mine goes missing/breaks. It's something I'd probably not think about until it happens, and then I'm scrambling to find a charger before my phone dies. Wire/cord organizers are just great year-round. - Oxbridgecomma
Experiences. Like when someone gives you a coupon or something and it's good for going to the movies with them. - m5m2m1
Nice sheets or towels. Everybody enjoys them but no one I know can ever justify spending good money on sheets or towels. I have gifted a bunch and are always well received. - erickadue32
A really good version of something that’s usually inexpensive. A nice pen, great tea or coffee, good leather bound notebooks. Even a nice version of most of those things is going to be under $50 but is still really luxurious. - KindaIndifferent
Every year my grandma would get everyone toilet paper, deodorant, toothpaste, Q-tips….didn’t realize how great it was until she was gone - orgasms4ever
Grandma told us every year, 'Just get me something I can smoke, drink, or eat.' - orbroy2point0
One time at work, we were doing this white elephant thing (I don't remember the exact rules, but essentially, everybody brings a gift and everybody leaves with a different gift). The plan was to buy goofy, funny things, like the non-risque stuff you see at Spencer's or something.
When I opened mine, it was a 124 pack of toilet paper. Everybody laughed and thought it was funny, but I've never even come close to receiving a gift as amazing as that, I have no idea why nobody tried to take it from me unless they somehow knew I'd physically fight them over it. - Ok_Ad_9188
