In the spirit of the season, we wanted to know about the crappiest gifts you’ve received. Gird yourself for some truly awful misplaced generosity…

‘A break-up text on Christmas Eve… with an append that said I also had to get a taxi from the airport to my folks’.’

‘A pack of Hello Kitty sanitary napkins.’

‘A can of Foster’s.’

‘Probably a jar of beetroot.’

‘Chocolates from inside an Easter egg… for Christmas.’

‘A bucket, chamois leather and tow rope.’

‘An air freshener. It wasn’t even a fancy one!’

‘Aged 16, I got a pair of green edible underwear – from my pervy older cousin.’

‘My gran was traveling down for Christmas, stopped off overnight and didn’t have a toothbrush. Luckily she had brought me one as a present so she unwrapped it, used it, and wrapped it up again. The worst bit: she told me.’

Now wince as Londoners reveal their biggest guilty pleasures.
