It’s not that parents, relatives and friends gift up shame and devastation on purpose; it just unfortunately happens sometimes.
My mom, (God love her) gifted prepubescent me two training bras in front of my dad on Christmas morning 1987. Seriously mom, what were you thinking? Did you really think training bras needed to be gift wrapped with a fabu bow? I’m still not over it.
I asked you fine, well-adjusted readers for the worst of the worst holiday gifts you received as children. Wow, I can only imagine the thousands we’ve collectively spent on therapy as a result.
One thing I know is true, it’s not the gift that counts; it’s the careful treading not to ruin a child’s self-esteem that counts. I only hope this post serves as a PSA of sorts as we finish up our holiday shopping. Gift with caution friends.
Without further ado, get ready to cringe with these worst-ever received presents!
