    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?

    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.

    bump

    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

    Bluplunkt (sp) radio and 4 speakers with an amp and sub-woofer were my best gifts. My second best was a 1984 Hutch BMX Prostyle bike frame and fork. Wanted one when I was a kid but parents would never buy one for me.

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

    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.

    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

    Worst gift.

    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.

    Arrrghggghhh!!!

    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 I recieved: Dell X50 Pocket PC, and a stuffed Rhinocerous
    Worst: None!

    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
