What's the worst gift you've ever gotten for Christmas?
Or heard about someone getting for Christmas? Pretty broad topic - hoping for some entertaining stories. I have two, both from my current job in a medical lab.

I work in a super nerdy specialty loaded with introverts. They insist on having a Secret Santa event every year, but it's the most pathetic going-through-the-motions-type thing I've ever seen. I guess it's kind of for team building? The buy limit is around $20.

1. Three years ago a coworker gave me a spatula and a bottle of ketchup. I work in the Midwest but am from Louisiana. He had created his own label personalized for me that said "Midwestern Tabasco". I guess it was supposed to funny, but it's not like this is a white elephant party. We exchange the gifts at work in the morning. He didn't even wrap the gift. He just put the items in a brown paper bag with my name on it. I didn't even know what to say, but I DO use the spatula.

2. Another coworker of mine is 100% on the spectrum. He thought it would be funny to buy this 40+ year old married woman from South America (not hot at all, speaks broken English, and her husband also works here) crotchless panties and hide them at the bottom of the bag beneath the tissue paper with another gift on top. I honestly don't know the thinking behind it. He hates her husband and isn't that fond of her either but explained to me that it was an just an innocent attempt at humor. Idk.

She found the panties like 2 months later and, of course, reported him for sexual harassment. Somehow he managed to not get fired.

My mom's step brother, so my non-blood uncle, who happened to be rich as all frick, got me a single Goosebumps book when I was like 14. Nobody reads that gay shite at 14. He got my sister a wooden handheld mirror and some other retard gift for my brother.

It was as if he was deliberately telling us to go frick ourselves, we aren't blood so we ain't getting shite.

My dad loves to haggle and one year he had been to NYC a few weeks before Christmas. Apparently, he had a ball haggling with street vendors and bought a ton of random junk, fake watches, and a bunch of generally worthless crap. He didn't have any use for it so he gave it our to everyone as Christmas gifts that year. He touted the quantity over the quality as a selling point.

Secret Santa at work many many years ago gave me a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" because he thought I was an a-hole.

re: What's the worst gift you've ever gotten for Christmas?
I worked in a a clinic where I was clearly the black sheep.I was the only one there who either was not in the family, or did not attend their church. They obviously totally forgot me for secret santa, but played it off saying oh umm your secret santa hasent gotten here yet I guess...um.. yea the owner ended up feeling bad running out and coming back with a kinda wrapped LSU visor... I don't think I'll find this thing fashionable when I'm 80...it's one of those puffy as hell more obnoxious than Spurriers visors.... I was gonna regift it at the next Christmas, but thankfully transferred.

My aunt gave me a dvd of the 2006 season highlights of the gamecocks. This was in 2008. A two year old highlight dvd of a 7-5 team.

I have an aunt that is a catholic nun.

She gives me a piece of origami every year made out of one sheet of paper.

It’s not super impressive either. It’s not even a little bit impressive.

If you have to finish it off, try with a little Dr. Pepper. It's not terrible.

Girlfriend of 5 years broke up with me 3 days before Christmas years ago, made me move out and told me didn't love me anymore.

Out of the blue to me

That shite hurt for a while
