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!

Is it her whole legs or just up to the knees? Because if its not her whole leg I have seen people who got their leg(s) amputated up to the knee(s) and they still wear socks. 0.o

I feel like you'd need bigger socks than usual.

you could still put the socks on the stump coz it will still get cold (depend if how far they amputated the leg though).

Your'e aunt probably never noticed that your grandma's legs were missing, since her health had improved your aunt, in her wisdom might have thought she'd grown another pair of legs

how far up were they amputated? I mean, not the best gift but maybe aunt thought that they'r help keep the remaining stumps warm or something. *Trying really hard to be charitable*

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. :/
