Christmas Gifts

By Will Samuels


Hi everybody,

I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing winter break and enjoyed the holidays. As you all know, the holidays are typically a time for gift-giving and receiving, and I thought that I should showcase some of the worst gifts people have received. Hopefully, these gifts will make you feel better if you didn’t like some of your gifts, and if you got any of these gifts… well I’m extremely sorry. I’ve compiled the top 10 here:

  1. a Homz T-Leg Steel Top Ironing Board

  2. Sensodyne Toothpaste

  3. the Hyper Tough 32 Piece Metric & SAE Combination Wrench Set

  4. The History of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, by William Mahoney

  5. The RIDGID PowerSpin Plus drain snake

  6. a stick of chewing gum that was claimed to be brand new, but had suspicious indentations on it

  7. A NON-FDA APPROVED MASK

  8. A framed copy of this picture:


9. Dr. Scholl’s Freeze Away Wart Remover

10. a 15 oz jar of Best Foods mayonnaise


While some of these gifts do have their rustic charm, these gifts strangely tended to be extremely unappealing to their recipients. I hope that you all had a better holiday season than these giftees!
