You Tell Us: What's Your Worst Christmas Present

Another year, another fruitcake. But, do you plan to regift?

Patch wants to know what the worst present was that you got this year, or any year, for that matter.

Did you get yet another tie and you’re not a tie wearer? Did you get a vacuum and think you’re husband’s sending you the wrong message?

I'll start us off: this year, a well meaning relative bought me bright green eyeliner (from a very nice brand.) I don't wear eyeliner and, with my pale skin, I have to be careful of bright makeup, lest I look like I'm decomposing. Definitely a regift. 

Please add your stories to the comments are below.

Tell us the worst present you got and do you plan to regift it?

I got a ream of paper from my wife. I think she really loves me.

Ha! Sam,! I might love that gift - I'm always out of paper. Though, some eschew the practical (as in, the year we bought my mom a blender....)

This is in the "best gift" category....My 24 year old daughter hand watercolored a "page a day" calendar for 2012 for me. Each month has a theme: Mom's month, clothing (mine) etc...Each page unique to our family. Amazing!

Linda V: That is a wonderful gift from your daughter !

I got a lot of great gifts, especially love, from my family this year. Right now, I'm enjoying a book of brain games. It might seem childish, but we can all use an IQ reboot I guess.
