’Tis the season of giving and all through the world, people are unwrapping some gifts to be hurled. Now, the very act of giving a gift is one that should inspire gratitude in one’s soul. The sad, pessimistic truth of the matter is, that's not always true. Sometimes a gift is so off the mark that you wonder if the giver even knows who you are. Were you an afterthought? Are you really that hard to shop for? What gives, giver? Like a pro, though, you hide your true feelings, muster a “thanks,” and save the venting for opportunities like this. We asked a small, select group of folks to recall some of the more peculiar gifts they’ve ever received. The results range from dreadlocks to talking John Lennon dolls—things you probably didn’t even know existed until now. Bask in all the awkward glory and maybe take note; if you think a person’s not going to enjoy their gift, they probably won’t. Is it even worth giving at that point? You be the judge.
