The 7 Worst Gifts in Fiction

;

What’s the worst gift you’ve ever gotten? Mine was a calendar for the year 2008, which I received in the year 2013. My aunt and I have also been giving each other the same re-gifted DVD copy of Ratatouille for half a decade, so I suppose that counts.

We all have at least one bad gift that sticks out in our minds. It could be dental floss, math flashcards, or a coupon for a free hug from someone who smells perpetually and inexplicably like cheese. Whatever yours is, rest assured it doesn’t hold an evergreen-scented Yankee candle to these terrible gifts from fiction.
