RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Worst gift received:
A green velour jumpsuit from my father and his 2nd wife. Never wore it.
(This was in the early 70's when jump suits were the mod thing.)

Worst gift given:
Something I gave my (now ex-) wife that went over like a lead balloon. It was so bad that I've blocked the memory of what it actually was. Weeping

Mine was only 3 months ago, my sister gave me a basket of cleaning products. Because I always complain her son making a mess Laugh out load. It was cute though, I had a written note from my nephew saying sorry for all the mess he has done so far this year Laugh out load.

Was it the green jumpsuit?

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Worst received: A package from my mother which included three second-hand shirts that I hoped were intended as packing material. The worst of the three I remember as "the disco pimp shirt."

Worst given: The 14,000 piece puzzle with no picture that I gave to my sister. It is actually three very similar 5,000 piece puzzles mixed together after removing all of the edge pieces.

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Decent gift - lousy presentation... Facepalm

My husband bought me four new tires for my car one year (birthday gift). That's a fine present when you need tires and they are expensive.

Presentation - came home to find them stacked in the dining room, he was at work. Tough to coordinate since I worked days and he worked nights. Blink

So I proceeded to muscle three of the tires into the trunk of my two door Grand Prix and tie the trunk lid down and had to shove the other tire into my back seat. As I drove through town to the place to get the tires mounted and balanced I realized that I had finally arrived in Bumfuck, SC. Weeping

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Almost any gift I get from my parents. They put zero thought into it. I put a lot of thought into the things I get them, but every year they either go to Macy's or Joseph A. Banks and get me a sweater. I'm all sweatered out.

They mean well, so I just say "thanks" and go with it. But, just once I wish they gave two seconds of thought into getting me something.
