I've got a couple more to share from the paper:
"The worst gift I've ever received was a huge, beautifully wrapped present from my husband the first year we were married. It sat in the house for several weeks before Christmas, and I was aquiver with anticipation.
The big day came, and I eagerly tore into the box, to find...a laundry hamper."
"One year for Christmas I received from my cheapskate brother six half-used containers of dental floss, all individually wrapped.
The wrapping paper was wedding paper from his wedding gifts - he had been married ten years at that time.
He told me later that he had been cleaning out his medicine cabinet and thought I coud use these items."
And finally, someone on TV wrote in to say their worst gift was a box of assorted chocolates...with a bite missing from each chocolate!
Hope your gifts were better. Tell us about them on the new thread.
