POLL: What's the Worst Gift You Ever Got?

Some gifts aren't even worth re-gifting.

When it comes to giving gifts, it may be the thought that counts, but some givers clearly put very little thought into it.

From bad sweaters to awful movies, what was the worst gift you ever received? We want to hear from you. And if you have a photo of it, you can upload it right to the story.

Help other holiday shoppers know what to avoid. We know it's the season of giving, but giving what people want can be a challenge.

Did you return the gift? Have you made other gift suggestions to gift givers? And if you're worried about receiving another worst give, share this story with your family. We want to make your holiday happy.

I'll chime in: a half-eaten box of chocolates...and the ones eaten were the only ones I like! The coconut ones!

A well wrapped envelope from a "mysterious" person that was on my Christmas tree for a week... It contained my Jury Summons.

At a recent Yankee Swap, I brought a well-thought out package containing things to keep someone warm during a New England winter and received a box of tea bags...a very nice, metal box with linen bags in a pyramid shape that I was thrilled with, as I love tea and these would have been great. Then, when I got home, my husband asked if I saw the "Best if used by" date. It was 2005! I emailed the company and they said their tea has a three-year shelf life, so the box was ten years old! (And no, the company did not offer to make good; not even a discount)

A pair of neon-green knee highs. The ones where you buy a package of 10 at the dollar store and split them up into gifts for 10 people. Meanwhile, the gift-giver then jets off to Paris decked out in the finest clothing which by the way does not include wearing neon-green knee highs. Thanks Auntie :/
