It doesn't matter if you believe in Santa Claus or not; we can all agree on one thing - everyone loves getting Christmas gifts. And although Noel is primarily a time to be selfless and generous, some savage trolls view it as the perfect opportunity to have a little bit of fun at their family or friends' expense with their ever so unique gifts.

From using zip ties for packing to getting someone a Mercedes-Benz key-shape USB, the culprits who are featured in this gift ideas list just want to see the world burn. Sure, these gag gifts are funny sometimes, but other times it's just plain annoying and entirely unnecessary.

Bored Panda has collected some of worst (or funniest) Christmas gift ideas people found under their festive evergreen trees, and this hilarious series will make you appreciate the coolest gift ever which is a good old pair of socks you're definitely getting this year as well. Scroll down for proof that "holiday spirit" is a loose term, and upvote your favorite funny gifts!

Hahaha! I spent an entire year asking for a thermos to take hot drinks to work. First for my birthday, then for Christmas, then for Epiphany (I live in Spain and this is another Christmas holiday). Everybody said no because it was a boring gift, and I had to end up buying the thermos myself...
