Buying Christmas gifts can be tricky, especially if you don't have those personalized letters that Santa does. Which is why people often, lets put it this way, don't precisely meet the gift ideas receivers had in mind. But hey, at least we could get a good laugh out it.

From giving an amputee a pair of socks and a cat toy to the least favorite grandchild to such funny gifts as nurses gown as a dress and shredded cheese packs, this list has all the worst Christmas gifts ideas. Luckily, most of them were met in good humor!

Below you'll find a list, inspired by mrsik187, of the most unique Christmas gifts people have ever received. Take a look, feel free to add your own awful gifts to the list and hopefully this year you've been good enough to deserve a proper secret Santa gift!

Why didn't they just pack up all the socks into one package? I don't know, my grandma has the same thoughts about getting you to open a bunch of stuff so you "feel like you're getting more". I say, it's just a waste of paper, since ultimately I'll just have a bunch of small things anyway, and I'm an adult, so I don't get much joy from simply ripping into presents!

My aunt sent me a little kids book of horse stories when I was 16. Nowadays I'd be amused, but back then I was definitely not.

Curious; how well does your aunt know you? It sounds like she was a bit confused; or something.

Maybe the aunt had poor eye sight.

I got an extra small childs nightgown from my grandmother... I was 16 and 5'11. That was ALL I got for Christmas while my brother and cousins were tearing into hundreds of dollars worth of presents. I was not the favorite.

I got a block of cement formed from a 5 gallon bucket, skiing with a crappy little rock hammer. After months of chipping away I finally found the one thing entombed within... A better rock hammer. :/
