    Anything from a shop selling the same old sh*t round the country packaged in neat little 'we know you can't be bothered to think' christmas gift boxes.

    The items you describe sound up-market compared with the trash they sell here in the UK at Christmas. Try walking into a shop to buy something nice? No chance, you have 50 options, all of which are the same level of crap.

    Both of those would actually be pretty cool to get for Christmas. I once gave a person I didn't like a lightbulb for christmas.

    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    I love xmas ,
    I have given (and received ) so many strange and funny things away for xmas

    I once gave a real toilet to one of my best friends, and I've even filled it with water so it was ready for use

    I wrap it up in nice xmas paper and made it look like a square so he shouldnt be suspicious, then I dressed as Santa and loaded the package in my wheelbarrow and went to his house to deliver it

    his brother in law came out to help Santa carry it up the stairs and up in their livingroom, and while carrying it up the stairs it started to leak and his brother in law said something like "what's this, it's leaking water.. so strange, what can it be. and it's so heavy.." hahaha I've almost died in those stairs

    it was a success which can't be described

    I don't think the jumper and fuzzy slippers count because they have a point

    Unless the snowflakes were those fluffy pom-poms that are sewn on afterwards, then they would be pointless.

    During the holidays, I've received affordable diamond jewels from this web site: <snip></snip>. By the way, is it website or web site?
