A pair of marigolds, underwear from a boss, anti-cellulite cream and EVEN BOTOX are just some of the most HATED Christmas presents to have been received by Brits.
With less than three weeks to go until Christmas, the nation’s most LOVED and HATED breakfast spread, Marmite, looked back at some of the UK’s worst ‘gift gaffes’.
According to 1,500 respondents, men and women accept on average three gifts they hate EVERY Christmas.
Last year, one poor soul was given a tax disc holder, another unwrapped breast firming cream from their gran and an unlucky individual was given a bag of cat litter.
One in four said they can’t remember the last time someone gave them a present they actually LOVED – with mums and colleagues named and shamed as the most likely to give a poor present.
However, it isn’t all doom and gloom. When it comes to gifts Brits would LOVE to receive, seven in ten felt that something with their name on would show thought and consideration – and most likely not to end up in the bin.
When it comes to our reaction when presented with a disappointing gift, 24 per cent said they see the funny side, saying receiving rubbish presents gave them something to laugh about.
Some of us just won’t let it slide, with a whopping third admitting to falling out with their other halves due to the terrible gift attempt.
There is no need to let a present go to waste according to an over a third of us (35 per cent), who admitted to re-gifting to others.
A quarter of Brits who get landed with a rubbish present like to exchange it for something else but 34 percent give it straight to the charity shop.
