Fishing rods, one for me and one for my son, so we could have some father/son time together fishing. Problem is, I can’t abide fishing.
The most embarrassing gift I ever received was a picture frame I remember previously gifting the person who gave it (back) to me. At least I had good taste!
lady’s underwear in a grab-bag
My son-in-law once gave me a pewter squirrel nutcracker because some iof the voracious little beasts had filled the valve vault behind the house with gravel from under the house. While not particularly humiliating it was as close as, I am happy to say, I have ever gotten
A few packs of fishing weight aka sinkers and a cap
…. from a company called balls deep and all of their fishing weights are shaped like testicles
Boxer shorts with my picture on them.
After all these years, I have never received a Christmas gift that I wasn’t thrilled to receive.
Is that typical, or am I just lucky ?
Years and years ago: socks and underwear. Thanks, Mom.
I can’t say I was embarrassed but once my sister gave me a pink shirt. She also gave me black jeans which I also wouldn’t wear. At least she cared enough to buy something for me.
When I was about 11 yrs. old my mother bought me a loose knit orangish brown cardigan sweater. When we got to my grandmother’s house most of my uncles and great-uncles had the same style. My cousins teased my the rest of the day and evening.
I’m with Iwc! I can’t think of any embarrassing gifts… If you give me a gift, I’m not embarrassed!!
My Santa underwear (pics of little santas) from mom, every time I put them on I laugh at how silly they are… better than none at all! thanks
I can’t say I’ve gotten embarrassing gifts, thankfully. Lucky me.
Many years ago I had a friend who was known to give “unusual” gifts. A group of us got together at my home to exchange our gifts, and Eileen mentioned that she gave me a valuable “cut glass item”. When I opened the package, there was an old glass urinal!
I don’t think that I have ever receved an embarrasing gift. The only gift that I can recall are sets of plaid and striped PJ tops and bottoms with robs that were super super over sized big.
I don’t remember receiving any embarrassing Christmas gifts.
Well, the thought was very nice…..but the power charger for my portable radio lacked a bit of charm….But it was a kind thought that I did appreciate
while I haven’t gotten too many embarrassing things. I do have one that is well not embarrassing, if I don’t tell the whole story.
so the story….. where I used to work they would have a taken name get them a gift under an $ amount thing. The last year I worked there we had a lot of employees and “they(s)” decided to make it optional, I opted out for $ reasons. however after Christmas one of the girls gave me a “do you want this it was extra and I don’t know who to give it to” conversation ( was it originally meant for me? she was kind of pushing me to do the gift exchange. ). it was a bit awkward because they were Christmas pajamas with a little Christmas tree pattern on them and the shirt is green and white. she at the time had a boyfriend/fiancé. and I still to this day think that they are women’s pajamas and yet I’m still not completely sure. there you have it the full story including the fact that I still wear them because they fit quite nicely (oops). Now please don’t tell anybody, just let them read it here as I have not told anybody yet and probably never will for a long time.
Nothing too embarrassing unless you count an ugly sweater now and again…
A pair of white shoes & white belt — so I could look like a used car salesman I suppose
I received a horse on a stick, remember them? It was a broom stick with a horses head on the top. You were supposed to put the stick between your legs and hop around to simulate “riding the the horse.” 🙂
