This is the time of year to shower your loved ones with gifts galore.
There is so much joy in picking out the perfect present, wrapping it up nice and pretty, and watchingthe look on their face when they see what’s inside. Well, for most of us.
For some folks out there, gift giving isn’t exactly their strong suit. They struggle with what to get, or simply just don’t really care that much. I don’t know what got into these people, but they just can’tseem to get the right presents!
These 12 gifts may be among the worst ever given during the holiday season. I would hate to be on the receiving end of any of these gifts, and not even because it would deprive me of arealgift, but because I wouldn’t know how to respond!
Have you ever gotten a gift like any of these? Or maybe you’ve given one in a moment of panic?

“A rubber Hulk Hogan figurine glued to a very effeminate toy horse. An elderly friend of the family gave it to me and wouldn’t stop mentioning how ‘they are supposed to look like that; that’s how it came from the store’ even though I didn’t voice any doubts.” Reddit user
“Expired chocolate, on Christmas, from an aunt who was a chronic regifter, yet always expected expensive, top notch gifts for her children on Christmas and their birthdays.
“Not only was the chocolate expired, but it was also evident that it had melted completely and resolidified. When I noticed, I went up to her with ‘OMG this chocolate is soooo good, you have to try it!’ In front of the whole family. I watched her unwrap a piece of chocolate and when she noticed how it looked, she was hesitant to eat it. When she looked at me, I just had a smile on my face. ‘It’s the best chocolate ever!’ And then I watched her slowly bring it to her mouth and try to eat it. She quickly walked to the kitchen immediately afterwards.

“A taxidermied deer hoof with a candle holder stuck in where the ankle would be. Only it’s bad taxidermy so it is constantly shedding a fine white powder on the table.” Tarsala3791
“Brother got a pocket knife in a small cylinder package (old toilet paper roll) wrapped like candy. Excited, I started unwrapping mine that looked similar.

“My husband got 2 rolls of pennies from my Grandma for Christmas that same year she gave my mom, a non-smoker, a tin of tobacco. When my mom complained, she gave her a calendar that was 3 years old. My son got a hairbrush wrapped in a Pringles can; he was 2 and cried because he really wanted the chips.” bonniejane1699
“When I was a wee 7 years old, my grandmother placed a long skinny box with my name on it under the Christmas tree about a week before the holiday. For the next 7 days, my small self drooled over the idea of a play baby stroller folded up in that box, just waiting to be filled with various stuffed animals.
“On that magical morning, I ripped the box open only to discover it was a VACUUM CLEANER. Not a toy one, either. A real life, serious, small vacuum cleaner.
“She claimed that she thought it was a great idea because ‘I loved cleaning when I visited her house.’
“That’s because you’re basically a hoarder and your house is disgusting, Granny.” christinagleas
“For Christmas one year I received rocks. Literally rocks. I used to collect geodes so my aunt and uncle decided to get me rocks. Except there was nothing special about the ones I received. They were just the little ones you find in people’s gardens.” Notalurker68

“First time I ever met my future mother-in-law was at Christmas. She went into my travel bag and took out a pair of my own socks, put a bow on them then presented it to me as an Xmas gift. I assumed it was a gag gift type scenario and laughed. She was deeply offended that I didn’t appreciate her efforts to show me that I was welcome in the family.” TheBeardItches
“A nose hair trimmer, when I was 10.” onlysame1
