    Okay so it doesn't have to be a birthday present, but that's what mine was.

    For one of my teenage years I got given a "mushroom farm" so literally a box of shit with some spores in a tiny plastic bag. I could learn responsibility by growing something, was I believe the theory behind the gift...

    Nothing says Happy Birthday like a box of shit

    My birthday is December 30, so my childhood was filled with combination-Christmas-and-birthday presents. Nothing worse than that.

    One time during my single-digit years, my Mom decided to throw a "surprise party." So she had to invite some kids. She pretty much filled up the basement with all of the neighborhood bullies, then pushed me in there icon_rolleyes.gif SURPRISE! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Oh man that's tough!
    My cousin would have the same thing as he was born January and he would get Christmas/Early birthday presents which were usually pyjama shorts lol.

    Worst I ever got was when I was younger, I got told off for not hanging the clothes on the line. I was like "... it's my birthday" and so they go "ohhhh happy birthday icon_smile.gif"

    Somebody gave me an ugly sweater and when I went to return or exchange it (to the store named on the gift box) I found out the ugly sweater didn't even come from that store. The store clerk clued me in that this was a Walmart sweater. Great. Thanks. I donated the ugly sweater to the Goodwill box, and made plans to put that "friend" in the "ex-friend" box.

    This was a "friend" by the way - that I'd done a lot for. A whole lot. This guy didn't have any financial woes either. He was just cheap and ungrateful for all that some of us had done for him. All his "friends" soon got his number. Nothing wrong with re-gifting - but why get somebody something cheap and pretty much unwearable, and then pull the stunt of putting it in a box from a good store?

    I gave a girl a nice necklace when she got back from germany...

    She gave me a pen and a bible bookmark back.

    Worst part is that one day I needed a pen and the one she gave me as a present didn't even work! icon_lol.gif

    I haven't had too many crappy gifts, but I think probably receiving a relatively inexpensive cologne called "Stetson" probably ranks.

    I like western clothes, western, belt, buckle, boots (during winter), etc....
    somehow during my college days, a cheap cologne sold in those stores called "Stetson" became a part of the mix. My Dad got it for me, friends did... one year I received 4 bottles of Stetson, including a gift set of two.

    Then I discovered decent cologne and converted, even though it might be $60. or $70.00 a bottle.

    One of my high school friends still gets me "Stetson", even though I told her years ago, I don't wear or want it. For Christmas, 2010, there it was again.
    I just trashed it.

    Agreed I think my family is just not a giving family. My mother used to make me my favorite cake for my b-day and that is all I used to get now I don't even get that. Whatever sometimes getting nothing is better than getting some gifts...

    We don't really do presents at birthdays. I would say getting nothing was bad, but I actually don't mind at all. I never liked the fuss that comes with birthdays anyway icon_razz.gif

    My family forgot it was my birthday. They were too preoccupied with my sister getting married to some oily bohunk.

    Nothing is actually what I'd prefer. Or maybe just a beer or something.
    I really don't need another piece of useless junk, or the pressure to reciprocate.

    My freshman year away at college I get a call on my birthday from the Student Union asking me to come down to pick up a package. My sister had gotten a car upon high school graduation since she went to a commuter community college so I went totally delusional, expecting to be handed a set of keys to a gift-wrapped car. Instead it was a cheap supermarket cake from my parents. Though my parents were very financially well off I appreciate how for them this is the best they could do but at the time it was like the end of the world.
