Best/Worst Gift Thread
My best was the new Craftsmen All in One Router/Dremel/Drill
Worst was a Disney Ornament
Honorable mentions was a stocking full of misc. protein bars.
My fiance's worst was a half-ass recycled Black Pleather Purse from our neighbors. You should have seen the acting job when she opened that. We laughed our asses off. Last year they gave us a recycled bagel holder. WTF?

gotta love Ghetto gifts, I think they go into their closet of crappy wedding gifts and pick one and wrap it up. Thats alright, Im getting married in April and will have quite the arsenal.

Cash, cash and cash! It is easily the best gift I could ask for! No way was my family going to buy me M1T or a chip for my Mark VIII. Needless to say, I am a happy camper. Hammy, you need no friends, bro!

The best gift I got was 30g each of 1T & 4AD powder. My wife's the best! The worst gift I got was a bunch of plates and cups that I decided to give to my bro & his wife. They just bought a house so I thought they could use them.

Heh, you guys crack me up. My best gift was a new head unit for my car and an electric shaver. My worst was a $50 gift certificate for American Eagle. Ughh....it makes me sick just thinking about walking into that store. I can't stand preppy people or their clothes. I shudder everytime i see those Blue Navy commercials too.

I think this is a great thread to bring back to life for xmas this year.
I would like to add something. Its not xmas yet, but my wife and I got married this summer, and my stepmother's sister gave us a wooden salad bowl. My fricken family flew the lady in and on top of that paid hundreds of dollars to have her stay in the hotel we were getting married in. I guess you would need to see all the things my family has done for this lady to truly understand what a slap in the face it was to my wife and I to get a fricken salad bowl. aaarrrggghhh

Worst: I think I got asme crappy sweaters a few years ago.

One year I told my girlfriend to get me 50 buffalo wings. She did and I ate them. It was good.

Now, if you ate those at Hooters, then that would be one hell of a Christmas gift. Damn, I love their wings, but my new wife won't let me go.Originally Posted by Bobo

Had a lot of good gifts. Best one I got wasn't something to buy, it was last week when the doctor came out of surgery and said my mom beat the cancer.
Worst gift ever was an orange chip/dip tray with yellow and black peppers on it

Let me set it up...
The previous Christmas, my brother and I (I am 8 years older) both received stereos. Mine was larger and had more features. Ok, so this particular year, he and I both had big boxes that we saved for last.
He opened his, it was a 19 inch color TV. So I'm thinking.. all right 21 inch for me! I opened mine.
It was some 1950's looking giant metal, non-electric typewriter that my grandmother thought I could use for school.

Ok I got one here
The worst gift was when I was 16. Keep in mind here I"m 16 years old! My older brother who was 19 or 20 at the time was coming home from school on Christmas Day. So he arrives with gifts in hand. I get mine (also note I spent about $25 for his ass) so I opened it and it was a little cap gun!!!
I tried to be nice at first then I snapped. I went nuts asking him what in the hell was he thinking. His response: "I know you like guns so I thought you would like it". I went hunting for the first time with my uncle that season so this moron thought I would like a cap gun. It was obvious this focker bought it at some gas station and it cost him a big 89cents.
Even my mom who is always the one saying it's the thought that counts went a little nuts.

best gift: a Hug/leap waking my ass up from my nephew, nothing is better than seeing that cute little face and hearing...I love you auntie!!!!
Worst gift: 2 doz roses, from a stalker..........Side note: I took them back to the flower shop and added my own card....:I am allergic to flowers,(a lie) and I am allergic to you ( not a lie)...please leave me alone.....:

Best Gift I recieved: Dell X50 Pocket PC, and a stuffed Rhinocerous
Coolest Gift I Gave: An 8x11 glossy of the Cowboy's From Hell album cover signed by all the members of Pantera in 1991, and a guitar pick that Dimebag Darrell used at the same show. I set them up really nice in a frame and gave it to my kid brother who is a huge Pantera fan and was really saddened by Dime's murder earlier this month. It cost me a pretty penny, but the look on his face when he saw it was so worth it
