Be glad it wasn’t some of these horrendous items! And for the record, none of these are mine personally. I stole them off Salon’s Table Talk on a thread called “Cheesy Ass Gifts”.
*Somebody at my workplace wrapped up a bottle of rubbing alcohol and two partially used Starbucks gift cards for our office gift exchange (which was NOT white elephant).
*One year for Xmas my mother gave me a previously opened package of her size XXXXXL panties. I think some of them had been worn, washed(?) and stuffed back in the plastic bag
*I once got a plastic toy penguin that shot chocolate pellets out its butt.
*A couple of years ago, a relative, who shall remain nameless, gave me a gift bag full of…little hotel soaps and shampoos they had stolen from their room.
*One year, she was forcibly restrained from giving us silver crucifixes w/ hyper-realistic bleeding Jesuses (Jesi?) on them.
* My former Father-in-law received gray pallbearer gloves from his parents for Christmas. Two years in a row.
If I recall the story correctly, the gloves had been used.
What was your cheesiest gift?
