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!

So, were you or not? Really wouldn't make sense if you are not adopted. And an odd way to tell you if you are.

My brother gave me a book called "I can make you hate" by Charlie Brooker, thankfully it turned out to be quite comical.

What - that it came from Santa or that you were adopted !!

Was it true. I hope everything is good. From a dad who adopted a boy and girl. They could not have been loved more by their natural parents. I hope you have the same fate.

That could be a hilarious prank. I use to wrap gifts at the mall to make money for charity. It would be amazing to slip that book prewrapped into the pile for the snotty customers.

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. :/
