    Mine has to me a frame with my name in. Only it wasn't my name. I'm Nicola and it said Nicole.

    I'm not quite sure what my uncle expected me to do with it. I must have looked puzzled as I didn't really know how to react. But I was courteous and just said thank you and put it in a drawer.

    We got a picture frame as a joint gift once, my hubby was opening it and it was falling apart as he was taking off the wrapping paper. It was one of those glass frames, obviously not a very good one :mrgreen::mrgreen: xx

    My sister (actually it was a joint present between TWO of my sisters) bought me and my OH a pack of those plastic fridge magnets that you put a photo behind for Christmas. It looked so cheap and nasty and had 'Tesco' clearly written on the box and I wonder either if my (unreliable) sister stole the money from my responsible sister and spent £2.99 in Tesco to cover it up or whether they just forgot me :shrug:

    When i was 17 my gran bought me a pink top and matching shorts set from M&S which was more suitable for a woman in her 60's heading to Spain for her summer holiday..........the kicker is i was a size 10 and she'd bought a size 16????

    For my bday this year she bought another m&s special. This time a horrific old lady quilted dressing gown that buttoned right up to the neck.....proper old lady style lol

    Lol, I don't get many bad presents. Mine is probably whenever people have bought me bubble bath in the past, as when I lived at my mums (so until september) I didn't have a bath, only a shower. Worst thing was everyone knew this but I still got bubble bath :dohh: xx

    I got a present for my cat that was much bigger than my cat, looked like a huge dildo (sorry :), all sparkly and stuffed with catnip :) I am not sure if my cat thought it was the worst, but I did :)

    Underwear. Nothing worse when you're 5 or 6 years old to open the gift from your grandmother and have it be underwear and not a toy!

    My little brother once got me a box of tampons! When I asked him what he was thinking, he said 'I couldnt think what to get you & reckoned at least you'd use these!'

    Sorry, mine wins!!!

    Oh and I were bought 2 jars of giftboxed mayonnaise?????????????????

    But - not your average mayo, not your helmans, oh no. It was posh mayonnaise (this was supposed to make it good I think) WTF

    Anyway - it was never used and to this day I still cant get over it.

    I cringe mostly about my facial expression when I opened it - I was like 'oh, thats different'
