Not for me

ProSome of them end up in a charity bag.

ConsI've got to say "thank you" and I don't want to!

I'm in pre-Christmas curmudgeonly mode because I've realised yet again that no matter what hints I drop to people, no matter what I say outright, they will still believe that on the question of presents they know far better than me what I want. I hate cut flowers. They arrive in the house and...

ConsThe smoke smells

Another challenge copied from Susan1967. If you are familiar with the way I write you will know what to expect; some sad, some funny and some made up stuff. Hope you enjoy reading my 10 worst pressie experiences. 1. About 38 years ago when I was 13 my mum and dad got divorced. 3 years down the...

ProCharities will benfit

ConsI realise how ungrateful I am

Technically, this opinion is four months behind or eight months ahead, depending on ones viewpoint. I am fully aware the joys of spring are in full bloom and lambs are bleeting in the fields but, moi being moi, all I want to do is open presents. I suffer from a rare disease called, 'I need...

ProAlways good for a laugh.

ConsPeople really thought I wanted this stuff!

This summer will probably see us tackle the selling end of a car boot sale for the first time. As I rummaged in the attic and garage to find out what we’ve got to sell I found a few awful presents from the past, which got me thinking about this little teaser… what are the worst presents I or we...

“Gimme a break Santa!”

Proerm none!

Consloads!

Dear Santa, just this once could you please arrange for the following or items similair not to be put in my Christmas stocking. I know I sound ungrateful but come on give me a break just this once! I'm not asking for much just perhaps not some of the gifts I've received in the past! I mean who on...

Profunny pressies

Consbad pressies!

As it is coming up to my birthday I thought I would have a bash at my list of the 10 worst presents! Warning! Some reference to items perhaps more suited to those of an non-sensitive disposition. I’m going to cheat a little and these aren’t all things I have actually received (my...

“What Drugs Did Santa Take”

Proirrelevant

Consditto

O.k, so I write three opinions in a week and then go mad and write two in a day? But, I have an excuse. I was reading through the ten worst Christmas presents opinions, and found that suddenly years of gross pressies came back to light…. I have joined a family recently, and this is the second...

“Thanks a Million...”

ProYou can laugh. About ten years later.

ConsYou may cry. At the time.

I think nearly everyone here has been the recipient (or perhaps even the giver…) of cringe-worthy gifts. Sometimes, gifts are simply inappropriate; sometimes they are just plain bad. However, the surprise is half the fun – even if the surprise is less than pleasant. Now my sister-in...

“Presents Of Mind”

published 23/11/2003

ProThey don't exist

ConsThey could

Yet more ramblings from the fertile, some would say foetid, mind of BNibbles. Abandon hope of reading something good, all ye who enter here. My ten worst Christmas Presents don’t actually exist (yet – but give it time). If they did, I’d no doubt get them, or would that be GIVE them? Maybe they’d...

Super

ProWhat fun giving these...

Cons...but not if I got similar stuff in return.

Bnibbles’ original take on this led me to another idea. If I could, what ten horrible gifts would I give to people who richly deserve them? 1. For Jennie. Jennie, you’ve driven us mad with boredom for years with your holiday photos and, more recently, videos. It wouldn’t be quite so bad if you...

ConsComplete Insults at the time

Well i got the Christmas bug and i think this section is very apt for the time of year that is fast approaching. 1) A pair of red bobbly trousers and top to match. now behave and stop laughing. My mother in law bought this as i wear red quite a lot.... Now im not a skinny little thing, im more...

“Does anyone really know me??”

published 20/12/2004

ProNone to me

ConsLoads for me

I think that this was originally started by susan1967 and as it is that time of year to open pressies and exclaim with fake surprise "oooh it's just what I always wanted" I thought that in anticipation of the next batch I would recount the top ten of my crappy presents and a little info on why I...

Magicloudz (Jon) is magic in himself, he has been able to discover a few old op's that I posted as Kel161080, that unfortunatly due to me having to resign as that username and come back as another have been deleted. So thanks to Jon I am re-sposting some of the funnier op's that I once wrote...

ConsPainful memories!

In this op. you can find my worst 10 Christmas presents ever. Not all of them are totally useless, but just not the sort of thing you want for Christmas. People who should know me the best have thought these were great gifts and the perfect way to say ‘Merry Christmas!’ In this op. LOL will stand...
