The worst gift I gave was charcoal to my sister, when we were bratty kids. There are no contemporary photos, but here is my re-enactment.

First, I'll just remove the real gift from its box and set it aside. Then, get the bag of charcoal from the garage. I am so sneaky. Add a bunch of charcoal briquets, so it sounds like a box of candy if she shakes it. I am so bad.

Next wrap up the box, put on a bow, and a tag. Tee hee tee hee.

In case you are inspired to try this, because it seems like it will be really funny for all involved (as I thought at the time), please do not. My sister was upset, didn't get the "humor", and she got her revenge for this several times in the following years. It was long ago, we're adults now, and we're OK. Don't do mean things. Happy Holidays.

I gifted my Steam friends Bad Rats: the Rats Revenge for Christmas

It's a terrible game from 2009 that usually goes on sale for $0.01, I figured when the see the pop up notification saying "Blaze has sent you a gift!" they would be excited until they see the gift is actually Bad Rats, Lol. Some found it funny others no so much

the worst gift I gave someone was a bakers edge brownie pan. Its a pan that makes it so all your brownies are the edge brownies, which some people would consider the best brownies. I'm not one of those people but my wife is. I thought she would like it, she thought it was a gag. 20171121_220516.jpg

laptop bag from my uncle...when I didn't own a laptop. Probably not the "worst" gift, but the most nonsensical one.

When the wife and I started dating, I thought it would be funny to hype up her Christmas gift.  When it came down to opening time I made her wait till everyone else opened their presents and then I gifted this to her.....
