“The worst gift I have ever received was a re-gifted item I had given the year before.” -SarahJane

“One year my Polish grandmother bought me Axe body spray for Christmas because she thought it was perfume.”  -Molly

“When I was little I was really into Pokemon cards. One year my aunt got me what she thought were Pokemon cards, but were really pictures of Pokemon cards on a piece of cardboard. She told me she got them at the dollar store.” – Adam

“Last year I got socks that were way too big for my feet.” – Anonymous
