Don't let these bad holiday gifts happen to good people

Metroland Media

We've all given bad gifts, and we've certainly received them. Unless someone has specifically requested any of these items - or that coffee mug just screams Aunt Fran - it's best to avoid them!

Gift this if you enjoy awkward moments and making your loved ones feel horribly about themselves.

Gift this if you enjoy seeing friends and family (especially young children) looking disappointed.

Gift this if you're looking for a passive aggressive nudge at your slovenly relations.

Gift this if you enjoy giving presents that require recipients to do the heavy lifting to complete the gift.


 

Scented candles

Gift this if you know absolutely nothing about the recipient.


 

Novelty slippers

Gift this if you know absolutely nothing about the recipient, apart from their shoe size.


 

Necktie

Gift this if you want to make it clear you put zero thought into gift giving this year.


 

Gift card for a place you don't like

Gift this if you want the recipient to know that you bought their gift on your way to the party.


 

Coffee mug

Gift this if you have nothing in common with the recipient, other than you both enjoy hot beverages.


 

Fruit cake

Gift this if you're actively trying to get out of next year's office gift exchange.


 

But, 'tis the season -- so be sure to thank anyone who gives you a gift...even if it is a fruit cake from 1999.

What's the worst gift you ever received?
