10 worst gifts

Published:

The following is a list of the 10 worst gifts collected at the Sam Goody Bad-Gift Boycott. Let them serve as a warning to bad-gift givers everywhere:

1. Clown Art � in the form of prints, statues, T-shirts and towels. Who knows, clown art might make resurgence in the years to come, but for now, resist the urge to purchase anything clown-related. Whether it's a happy clown or a sad clown, the receiver of your gift will resemble the latter.

2. Homemade Sweaters � Remind yourself that the person who knitted the garment at least thought enough of you to take the time to create it, regardless of how itchy and ill-fitting it may be.

3. Puzzles � A good puzzle can be a great way to get the family together. However, be wary of giving a puzzle to anyone between the ages of 15 to 25. This age group sees the concept of working on a puzzle akin to watching grass grow.

4. Tube Socks � Many stores carry them in packages of three at prices thrifty holiday shoppers can't refuse. Retro is in, but not THAT in.

5. Ties � Ugly ties, along with the fruitcake, have become a bad gift clich�. Yet, both items arrived in droves at last year's Bad-Gift Boycott. Ladies, trust us, go easy on the ties this year.

6. Exercise Videos/Diet Books � Even if the package is adorned with multiple bows, it is impossible to give a gift of this ilk without offending the receiver. A gift/hint of this nature is as subtle as a battering ram.

7. Undergarments � Women typically choose boxer shorts with overly cute designs that men can't wear to the gym. Men typically choose something too risqu� -- your average woman wouldn't wear them in a million years. Men, trust us, go easy on the lingerie.

8. Padded Toilet Seat � What were you thinking?

9. Sausage Sample Pack � Sausage is best in small quantities. Very few people really, truly have a need for 10 different kinds of sausage at any one time.

10. Drug Store Perfumes � It's cute if a very young boy buys it as his first gift for Mom, other than that, cheap perfume is wrong on too many levels to actually list.
