What Are The Worst Gifts They YOU'VE Purchased?


Christmas is here, and there’s no doubt folks are under a lot of pressure to get their friends and family the perfect gift. But it turns out, a lot of people fail miserably in that department. 

A new poll finds:

  • 40% of Americans own up to being the worst gift-givers.
  • Another 46% feel like they are pretty bad at giving gifts.
  • 60% of people say it’s a struggle to find the perfect gift, with the holidays being particularly difficult. 

One major reason some folks give bad gifts is because they wait too long to get them.

  • In fact, 51% of people say they wait until the last minute to do their holiday shopping.
  • Half of people admit they’ve purchased a gift on Christmas eve, while 39% have purchased one on Christmas Day.

So, how bad are some gifts people get? Well, the poll asked people to reveal the worst last-minute gifts they've purchased, and some are doozies. They include:

  • A jar of peanuts
  • An oven mitt
  • Windshield wipers
  • A bottle of shampoo
  • A Voodoo Doll
  • A Chia pet
  • A broken watch
  • Mouthwash, but they really needed it.
  • Toilet paper
  • Multivitamins
  • I got someone an autographed picture of Vanna White.
  • Hydraulic fluid
  • Plastic silverware
  • An ashtray
  • Some matches
