Worst Christmas prezzie in the world

OK - so we're not quite there yet. But I thought it might be good to set up somewhere to vent about all the really rubbish crimbo prezzies you have received.

More socks?
Given the Mrs a iron and been thrown out the house?
Amount of smellies received given you a complex about body odour?

A t-shirt with a wolf on it and a mysterious magical background that could be out of Never Ending Story. 3 years ago. When I said, "Oh, you shouldn't have." I really meant it!

Not the worse pressie but my hubby bought me a flying lesson one year. Now I don't know about anyone else but the older I've got, the less of a daredevil I am. I returned it and bought a metal detector instead!!

I once had an auntie who bought me a five-year diary for two years running.

Apart from that, I hate gift vouchers. Record and book tokens make sense, but your standard Woolworths and WH Smiths vouchers are a pain in the arse. What's the point in spending a fiver in real money for a pretend fiver you can only spend in one store? It's sheer lunacy...
