    “What should I buy?' - this is perhaps one of the most common questions to be heard before Christmas. Especially among people with numerous families. If you are afraid you won't find anything satisfying, the gallery below might be a little bit comforting. You will find out what a terrible gift really means!

    Welcome to the gallery of nightmare Christmas presents!

    #1 I hate you so much!

    'My husband's stepmother gave me (I was 36 years old at that time) a backpack clearly designed for kids. Seeing my surprise she admitted that she had really bought it for a child some time before but the kid just turned it down as it was too ugly. So she had kept it in her closet for some time until she gave it to me.'

    #2 Faux-pas

    'It's about a gift I bought. These were tickets to a James Brown concert for the whole family, so that we could finally see him live. Unfortunately, just a few minutes after we had taken them out of the envelope we found out that James Brown had just died.'

    #3 A puppy

    'Once I got a super cool present. It was a gigantic stationery organizer filled with good-quality scissors, glue, paints, colored pencils, brocade and anything else that a kid might dream to have. The thing is that any time my parents went upstairs to add something new to it, they said they were going there to feed my gift or take it out for a walk. So at Christmas, instead of enjoying the big box full of stationery, I was just a miserable kid who was devastated having received no puppy.'

    #4 Useful. In 20 years' time

    'I got a set of miniature butter knives with china fruit and vegetable handles. I was 7 years old.'

    #5 A black sheep

    'When I was 18, my grandmother gave me a gift card label (without the gift card) pushed into a hollow toilet paper roll, wrapped as a present. All my brothers and sisters received real gift cards. My grandmother never really liked me.

    #6 Drawing

    'My family follows the gift-drawing tradition. All the names (including more distant family) are thrown into a hat and then you pick the person that you are going to buy a present for. And this is how I came into the possession of a DVD of 'Fast and Furious 3' (although I had never been a fan of it and part 5 was already on then). Another year it was even worse – I got a pair of poor quality gloves that were two sizes too small.'

    #7 'You're a girl so what is the fuss all about?'

    'I got a wash & wipe dish cloth. I was 8 years old.'

    'A calendar by Lamborghini. At the same time my brother got a guitar and an amp. My two sisters both got a bike. I still hate Lamborghini.'

    #9 Second-hand stuff

    'Every year our aunt would give us presents bought in a second-hand store. The worst thing was a Kamasutra ( I was 13-14 years old back then) and a childish New York Yankees T-shirt. I don't have any children and I am not a fan of baseball, either.

    #10 A full belly

    'A box full of Ramen soups. It was nothing but a box filled with Ramen bags. There was a ribbon on the top and it was not a joke. My family knew I was broke and I ate only one meal per day.'

    #11 Cigars and garbage

    'A packet of cigars ( I am not a smoker) and a roll of... garbage bags.'
