Share with us some of the horror/funny/outrageous/surprising Christmas gifts that you have received (or gifted if you’re brave enough to share) during the Christmas season :)

One time, we had secret santa, and the person who got me re-gifted a labelled t-shirt, that he wore the night before out to town 🤢🤮🤮

The following year, he got me again - and because I am a very forgiving person lol I assumed he would have learnt his lesson and actually gave me a nice gift. WRONG! He gifted me plastic dolls.... 🤦🏽‍♀️ what am I, 12? 🤣 When I think about it now, I laugh - and every time I see him, I remind him of his gifting choices 👏🏽👏🏽🤣🤣

Last Christmas my daughter and my son in law gave me a rocking chair🤦‍♀️😄. Like I’m 80 years old or something👵🏼😄. I wonder if they will be giving me a cat this Christmas😁, so I can be sitting in that chair with the cat like a good grandma ought to😂.

When I was young one of my grandmothers got me a wind up musical clown.... What child wants a clown?? After trying to sleep with it in my room, feeling like it was staring at me, I asked mum if I had to keep it.

I suppose it would make for good pay back. 😂 Maybe they’d rethink their gift giving ;-)

Or it would solidify your “granny” status. 😁

Or we could have a full blown Christmas gifting war on our hands😄.

I actually wouldn’t mind a rocking chair tbh, that would make me sleep easily 😅

That reminds me of those china dolls that some people like to hoard, not a good experience at all. 😅

One of my friends got a fly gun for Christmas. Not sure what he did with it, but I think he mentioned something about re-gifting it to his mother.

Don't ever mess with a wind up musical clown. Battery powered - ok, but wind up's are..... they have to wind down before they're ....... finished.

My sister and I shared a room when we were little and she got this hideous doll that was about as tall as I was. It had black wavy hair and its lips were red, but more red than they should have been along with its cheeks. It was abominable. It would stand on its own and its eyes would click open. Only, one eye would click open before the other. And sometimes, they wouldn't close when you laid it down. It just stared. I swear I could hear its gruesome little plastic feet tick tick ticking across the wood floor at night.

That’s another reason not to get someone a clown or doll for Christmas - I reckon glass ones are just as freaky as the plastic ones.

I would list the “inappropriate” things that I’ve received or have been received by others that I know of, but we have some youngins’ in the audience.

Good idea of passing it on, you could have sold it and made profit out of it - now there’s an idea!
