a hamper of random foodstuffs "because i like fancy food". and it was like crappy versions of things too, like really crap crackers and rank truffle honey and diseased looking pate and possibly the worst wine I've ever had. and this was from one of my sisters, we normally make an effort and avoid stupid mundane crap but that basket screamed "idk what to get you so here's some shit". I got her a sweet handmade cane with a metal skull on it that year ffs.


i mean idc about gifts really, but if you are going to get me something don't give me some total "idgaf" gift. rather have nothing at all, since then I'm not lumbered with some crap I don't want but can't immediately throwaway cause I don't want people insulted and cause I hate wastage.


oh one time someone got me a cliche "guys" gift of a cologne and deodrant pack. it was some people from work and I guess that's what they're used to giving to their sons and husbands and such but to me that shit is super lame. cracks me up when I hang around people who think scented liquid in a fancy bottle is an okay gift for their loved ones. i could forgive them doing it cause they're boring people who i'm indifferent towards but if anyone I cared about gave me perfume as a srs gift, I'd be more insulted than I was when I received that shitty hamper. I mean at least that shitty hamper had some kind of though behind my tastes, even if it was lazy thought.


edit: it sounds like I'm really into gifts, but I'm not. prefer giving gifts and hate receiving them but i feel if someone is going to give me something, at least make it interesting otherwise it just comes off as an empty gesture you're doing out of courtesy rather than appreciation.

Gave my ex wife an ironing board for our anniversary. Wasn't ex wife yet at that time.

Looking back, I don't think that helped things.

was it a nice ironing board though? and did she like ironing?


i acutally like ironing and do it every morning before I leave as a kind of ritual thing instead of ironing everything in one go on the weekend or something. my current one is a pos and I would love some well made one (only ever see shitty cheap ones in the stores)

Best gift I received was from my brother, we don't normally give each other stuff, but this one started as a joke. What it was was a framed black & white photo of a partially shirtless Nicholas Cage. All he did was print it, cut it out, and stick it in this tiny 5x3cm frame he had lying around. It wasn't even my birthday or anything special like that and it was a complete surprise, and it was honestly the best gift I've ever received. I need to get him back for it.

I hear you. Two things I hate in the lead up to Christmas, people asking me what I want, and my mum or dad offering me the chance to 'cash in' my gift for something I want in like June or something.

Seriously, if you think enough of me to get me a gift, you know me well enough to know what I like, and 'cashing in' gifts just makes the whole thing seem like an obligatory thing ugh.

Worst gift I ever received was a small tree in a pot plant with scratchies attached to the branches.

Still won 6 bucks off it though.......

I'm not a fan of birthday cards, unless they're really funny or relevant to the person receiving the card. My mom got me one last year which had a sad elderly guy in a wheelchair on the front, and which said something along the lines of: Hooray, another year older!

And then you opened it and it had the old guy smiling with above that the text: One less to go!

I can just imagine my mom in the store, laughing her ass of, thinking "hehe, yup, my son's going to die one day!"

But then other people will give you a card that just has a glass of champagne on the front and you're left there standing feeling kinda thirsty.

Blow job but there was a bit of teeth and it was awful

More materially, my sister got me Borat on DVD for my last birthday. I'm not quite sure why as I have seen Borat before, have Netflix, and expressed no desire for a Borat DVD I will never watch.

My parents argue about this shit all the time. My mom will ask for something specific, and my dad will go ahead and buy something completely different which he considers better, even though he won't be the one using it. He calls her ungrateful, while she says he didn't listen. Then she just buys herself what she wanted.

We have two vaccuum cleaners, two telephones and two kettles.

As for me, I can't really think of a bad gift, but there have been a few that I'd call unnecessary.

best gift I ever got was a blowjob coupon book from an ex-girlfriend.

Worst gift I ever got was a t-shirt with a scene from the Titanic on it.

An iPod Shuffle. It wasn't a bad gift per se and I appreciated the gesture a lot, but the product itself...man, I still haven't figured out how to put songs on it. And yes, I know I need iTunes. So it's still brand new and just collects dust on the shelf.

My mom gets me a lot of really awful t-shirts with pictures of guitars and stuff like that. Just awful looking stuff from a design point. Also not really a gift, but I like spicy food and so whenever my mom is at the grocery store and sees something jalapeño or chipotle flavored, she insists on buying it for me... despite me telling her every single time that I don't care for jalapeño or chipotle.

You should buy me gifts.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Whats the worst gift you've ever given/received?


Usually if you start a thread with such a question you are usually expected to the answer it yourself too. So what was yours?

Mine...My ex-sister-in-law thought I would like a VHS tape of "The Real World" best scenes or something like that. She insisted we watch it right then and there and I never watched it ever again. I think handing me $20 would have been better than that.

Was the giver aware that you are technologically illiterate?

Eh I don't really expect anything from gifts, I wouldn't even be mad if people didn't give me anything and it's mostly just study supplies and hygiene products which I can always use anyway. I guess the one time my aunt gave me a shirt I didn't particularly like but it was still a gift and it doesn't cost me anything to not wear it so whatever.

My dad gave me a piece of pipe and a huge stack of magazines once. I spent the rest of the day wreaking havoc on the neighbourhood with my paper darts.

My dad thought I'd grow bored of it in an hour or so, but his face when he realised I'd gotten through the entire stack of magazines was priceless.

Tbh rather than a generic gift I'd rather my family members get me something useful that I need that isn't glamorous. A set of useful knives or pots and pans or stuff like that is so much more useful than some vanity shit and leaves me to spend money on stuff I'm passionate about.

Although bantery thoughtful presents between mates are good. My best friend cos me a Taylor Swift calender for my birthday and I love it because she's thought about what to give me and even though it's just some paper it's represents consideration on her part
