Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year…or so the song says. With eggnog, pumpkin pie, cookies, joyous music, and presents under the tree, it’s easy to see why people love Christmas. It brings family and friends closer together each year, and if anything, you get to put up a tree in your house. When does that ever happen otherwise? Tons of shiny presents under the tree makes Christmas even more fun for everyone. But sadly, not everyone gets a jolly present from old Saint Nick. Sometimes, for one reason or the other, people receive very odd and bizarre gifts. Here are 25 Disturbing Christmas Gifts You Won’t Believe Were Actually Given.
Grandma's Not Messing Around
A woman from Tacoma, Washington wrote into the Reader’s Digest claiming she got a creepy Christmas present full of lingerie from her 88-year old grandmother. Her grandmother was hoping she’d eventually get a grandson.
Flush with Excitement?
On Christmas Day, the last thing you’d expect is to pull out a squishy, padded, black-and-white flowered toilet seat. But that’s exactly what happened for one Braselton, GA woman. Worst yet, she received it from her father-in-law.
One Redditor claimed when they were 6 years old, they received a baby doll from their uncle. He found it really weird his uncle would give a 6-year-old boy a baby doll but had to fake his excitement.
One woman received a Christmas gift from her boss at her office. It was wrapped nicely and on the tag, it read, “Something Useful, from:” When she opened it, she was shocked to find sanitary napkins inside. Her boss came over and said, “I hope I got your preferred brands correctly.” She resigned soon after.
Stereotypically, uncles are known for ruining Christmas in some way or the other, whether through political rants or drunken tirades. However, in this one case, one uncle took things maybe a bit too far. A thirteen-year-old’s Christmas present from their uncle included a condom and a $20. Usually, it’s the thought that counts. But in this case, the thought might actually be worse than the gift itself.
