What's the worst gift you've received?

What gift did you get from a significant other than you can tell they bought because THEY really wanted it. EX....power drill or grill from a husband...or fancy underwear as a gift from husband to wife because he wanted to see her in it, not because she really wanted it.

Oh my ex gave me plenty of these! He never wanted to take the time to ask what I wanted or listen, even when I asked specifically NOT for certain things. I can't tell you how many times I expressed please don't get me flowers, I am allergic, the cats eat them, and they're just a mess! Yet what was my valentines day or birthday gift? An allergy attack followed by cleaning up leaves after the cats and yet felt too guilty to throw them out! I think that bothered me the most!

OMG. I'd kill him if he bought me a freakin' powerdrill or anything like it! LOL. He actually wouldn't ever do a thing like that... he knows better! Ha Ha. I'm kidding, but he's so generous that I couldn't imagine him buying something with anyone but the reciever in mind. He really has a thing for giving. It's almost creepy. He gets all excited to buy his loved ones things. LOL. I do too, but he really is like in bliss over it He got me a Kindle Fire, camera, Laptop, jewelry over the past 6 years and he did use the camera a lot, but hasn't so much as touched the other gifts It would make me sad if he bought me something only because he wanted to use it. I don't mind sharing of course, but... too much touching of my things and I might bite! Ha Ha. Kiddin' again.

He doesn't buy me lingerie. I pick my own out and we prefer it that way. It would REALLY make me sad if he bought me lingerie and not because I really loved it, but because he wanted to see me in it. Of course I want to be desired, but don't pretend your gifting something to me when it's really for yourself. Actually, he has paid for my lingerie, but I picked it out. Usually I pay for my own. I like it to be a complete surprise.

OH! That just reminded me! A parnter I was seeing way before my current partner took me to Spencer's for my B-day. Yea, because that's EXACTLY where I wanted to celebrate! And then he f'n bought a stupid "365 SEX Positions book" for none other than me! I said "who cares about those positions, we can make up our own." Then the idiot was holding my purse--kind gentleman--and put a damn bottle of lube in there and handed it to me while we were walking out! So happy freakin' birthday. I got YOU a book you didn't want, which I kept privately anyways, never letting you even see it. And to really make it fun for you, I made you steal a bottle of burning lubricant! Oh the burn! I'll never forget it!

He bought me a jelly, ladybug rabbit style vibrator. It ripped on my skin, even with lube. I hated the dang thing!! I was so happy it fell apart!

I would love it if my husband bought me lingerie. He has a few times, (but I had a new baby at the time, and was NOT into it at the time) but hasn't recently. He's really bad at guessing my size, because I'm petite, he thinks I wear a "Small" in everything. I don't! I have fairly big boobs and have a big butt for a petite woman, and small clothes never fit me.

One year he bought me a tool kit. But, I wanted it. I hate going out to the workshop to borrow his tools and I wanted my own. I like to be independent around the house, if something minor needs fixing or I need to put a nail in or use pliers for something.

Once, when we first started dating he did get me a bodice ripper romance novel. He isn't a reader, and said, "You like to read, right?" Uh, yes. But, not this crap. I HATE Romance novels. I tried to read it, but it was so badly written, I quit after a few pages.

I asked him to not do that again.

I also don't like when he gets "on sale jewelry." He buys these "real gold" or silver earrings, that he says "are really expensive, but they had a sale." This is cheap jewelry, and it's ALWAYS "on sale." It's the kind of earrings that have tiny backs that get lost and the posts bend. Or are so cheap that they fall apart before I can wear them much. I'd rather he go to Clairs or Target and get me medium quality costume jewelry that won't fall apart.

He says I'm hard to buy for. Last Christmas he got me a pair of blue sweat pants.... in Small. Not only could I not wear them, and he lost the receipt, but I HATE blue. They sit, not being work, and my ass is too big to put them on. He thought that the medium "was too long." He's lanky and thin and doesn't realize that women are... shaped differently and can't squeeze into... I don't know what he was thinking.

omg i am deathly allergic to followers, every guy I've ever been with has known this and in the relationship has always been respectful of it...however after I broke up with a guy he sent me flowers, they joke with my friends was he was trying to kill me.

The worst gift I got from a guy was some designer soap and lotion in one of those basket package type of thing and a cheap necklace with my name spelled wrong on there.It wasn't so much the gift as the spirit it was giving in,as if I can be bought.

It's a toss up between the fake "diamond" cubic zirconium necklace from my ex or the meat grinder from my husband. At least the meat grinder was usable.. Not that I use it very often

Well, I've received many bad gifts from family that I now only ask for certain detailed things, or to just buy a gift card instead, but as for partners... My first boyfriend bought me a random "puzzleball" (it's this ball you have to piece together in order to have it form into a ball) at an airport in Europe before he came to visit me for the very first time. That was my birthday gift. He said he didn't really know what to get me and thought that since I loved puzzles it'd be fine! I'd told him several times what I liked.

Although, I do really like puzzles and while I loved the puzzleball (and still do), I really wish he had put more thought into a gift, especially upon getting to see one another in person. After this he bought me a ring at an anime convention that I'd been holding and just up and snatched it out of my hand.. then went to buy it for me. Didn't ask me if I wanted it. Just bought it. I did want it though so it made me happy.

After that I pretty much didn't get another gift until we'd broken up the first time. He gave me a lock of his hair, which I had asked him to do ages ago, as I'm very interested in Victorian/Edwardian/St eampunk customs like keeping a lock of love (you keep a lock of your loved one's hair and put it in a locket or such).

My current boyfriend hasn't really given me a gift, but I'm not really expecting anything, though I suppose.. he did buy me a sword at this years anime convention! It's not a real one. It's just a model. He got the real Japanese sword. Haven't received any bad gifts from him and I don't think I will! xD

I wouldn't mind getting power tools, I like being able to rely on myself to fix things and have a designated set just for me to use. I have two small boys that are rough on things so I'm always screwing in the screw back into their cheap dresser because they pull the knob off, or having to change out batteries all the time on their electronic toys.

My husband just lets me pick out what I want. My kids are messy and I hated getting on my hands and knees all the time with a bottle of carpet cleaner so last year I asked for a good steam cleaner so he bought me that.

For mother's day he usually buys me plants or rose bushes that we can plant so I can have flowers all spring-summer long.

I usually put a lot of thought into gifts. I hate shopping for other people because I tend to get really stressed and can't find somthing that I think they will like and then I worry myself until I actually give it to them. I know I'm strange.

But, one valentine's day. I bought my SO a ring that he really wanted it was a spinner band and it had four leaf clovers around it. and I got NOTHING. lol I wanted a ring as well. but he said i was being to picky. and blah. But it's ok... I did get a nice dinner and a movie night.

My worst gift was probably a box of chocolates since it was early in our relationship and he didn't know I was kind of allergic to chocolate yet
