What’s the Worst Christmas Gift You've Ever Received and What Did You Do With It?

We’ve all been disappointed by a lousy Christmas gift, but it's the thought that counts, right? So what was yours and what did you do with it?

Perhaps it made you feel sad, made you angry or maybe you really are someone who believes it's the thought that counts and you kept it — although maybe at the bottom of your closet. Did you re-gift it and make it a worst Christmas gift for someone else? Most of us have been disappointed in our lifetime by a Christmas gift that wasn't what we were hoping for — some stories are just worse than others.

If you had to think of the worst Christmas gift you’ve ever received, what would it be? And what did you do with it?

A fake cat that looked like a real cat sleeping. I was so sad it wasn't a real kitty that I threw it away. The same relative gave me a thigh master that stayed in a drawer because I just couldn't regift it and make some other woman feel bad about her body! Btw ... Same relative gave both gifts!

An older friend gave me a "cut glass" candy dish. It was really not something I would ever use, so I wrapped it up and gave it to my son's girlfriend for Christmas, the following year she wrapped it and gave it back to me, we did this for several years. She married someone other than my son, I gave it to her as a wedding present.

The worst gift I ever received was a single sock, that matched nothing. I think I tossed it, but don't really remember. It was many years ago.
