Picking the right, unique gift for someone you barely know or know too well, is probably the hardest task ever. And sometimes, after skipping through hundreds of gift ideas, you might just decide to go with some hilarious gag gift and end the struggles before you lose it completely. And if laughter is the best medicine, then the receivers of these Christmas gifts will probably never get sick.

Now, we can all agree that being presented with a well thought out, creative gift is a truly pleasurable experience, but not everyone gets what they expect! That's why Bored Panda decided to take a look at some of the most unexpected and funny gifts that people got this year.

From crazy packaging pranks to hilariously oversized clothes - this funny gift ideas list won't disappoint you. However, our personal favorite is the present consisting of two suitcases that a 24-year-old living with his parents got for Christmas. Ho ho ho!

Oh boy... I can relate to that. I have an aunt who loves grenadine. Once, I went to visit her and she offered me some. When I took a look at the bottle, that darn thing was like 15 years old. She looked at me and said: 'Grenadine NEVER expires'. True story. :-P

They sell/give those away? My husband bought me a luxury car for Christmas with a giant red bow on. After they delivered the car, congrats us took a few photos & packed up that giant bow and left. 😂 they told me they only had 1 so I couldn't keep it.
