    My highschool boyfriend's Mom gave me a pink sweatshirt with a puffy white cat on it. And asked me about it EVERY time I went over in the following weeks. Not sure if she REALLY liked the sweatshirt, or REALLY didn't like me.

    I once received a "banana protector" can you believe it.. I hate bananas!!! But I would sure appreciate winning this prize pack as I dont even own a smartphone. I know I know probably the only one who doesnt...

  3. Mary Boudreau • 12/19/2017 9:37:04 AM

    Have an LG G4 and would love to have an G6. I wish I had a strange gift to tell you about but I've never received anything strange that I can recall so I suppose that's a good thing but would have been helpful in order to win this

  4. Donna Bartsch • 12/19/2017 9:37:12 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I've received so far is a stuffed poop emoji :)

  5. nadine lalonde • 12/19/2017 9:39:39 AM

  7. teena • 12/19/2017 9:42:23 AM

    Christina cichon I got a flood light one year as part of a Yankee Swap. Terrible present. I put it in the Yankee Swap next year.

  8. D Jones • 12/19/2017 9:46:41 AM

    I specifically told my parents I didn't need or want a watch. I got a watch.

  9. Steve Thorne • 12/19/2017 9:48:02 AM

    I got a set of mounted points. Now that I am in the industrial tool trade, I know what they are, but at the time I received them, I had no idea what they were, or what to do with them.

  10. Alain Renaud • 12/19/2017 9:50:44 AM

    these are weird and funny at the same time. One year i received a set of shot glasses in the shape of a toilet.. lol

  11. Tam • 12/19/2017 9:52:53 AM

  12. L. Marie • 12/19/2017 9:53:59 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a padded toilet seat. I had redone my bathroom and my boyfriend thought the padded seat would suit the new decor. Thank you for all of the great giveaways. Merry Christmas :-)

  13. Sylvie dugas • 12/19/2017 9:57:24 AM

  14. Nadine Bessette • 12/19/2017 9:57:56 AM

  16. Jill Howes • 12/19/2017 9:58:10 AM

    I keep getting chocolates for Christmas from my step children and they all know that I do not eat Chocolate, is this a sign or else they know that their Dad loves them and he will eat them??? Strange

  17. Sherri Ford • 12/19/2017 9:58:36 AM

    Tickets to a hockey game.

  18. Hashi Adi • 12/19/2017 9:58:43 AM

    self help books, strange and slightly upsetting to get.

  19. roz rubinoff • 12/19/2017 9:58:59 AM

    My sister decided she wanted a bread machine so she bought me one ..go figure

  20. Yuen So • 12/19/2017 9:59:19 AM

    My son gave me an iPhone.

  21. Wendy McMurray • 12/19/2017 9:59:41 AM

  26. Donna Trowbridge • 12/19/2017 10:01:14 AM

    the year I got nothing, apparently i was forgotten by everyone :(

  27. Angie Mulcahy • 12/19/2017 10:01:39 AM

    it wasn't one gift, but a combination of two from the wrong people. My boyfriend's parents gave me a lovely gold bangle. My boyfriend however gave me bookends. He just couldn't understand why I thought this was strange!

  28. Jennifer lachance • 12/19/2017 10:01:43 AM

    a friend got me a box of salt

  29. Kirstin Crabtree • 12/19/2017 10:02:08 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I ever received was a sculpture of a man, all made out of snake skin, from my beloved Great Aunt.

  30. Kevin Castillo • 12/19/2017 10:02:19 AM

    Strangest Christmas gift was a book of some Chinese history though it was illustrated poorly in comic book format. Really odd.

  31. Nelia • 12/19/2017 10:02:18 AM

    I once received a chia pet that did not grow "hair". It was a very weird, and then turned into a very sad gift. Thanks for the chance Tribute.ca!!

  32. Carole Blanchette • 12/19/2017 10:02:34 AM

    Mon pire cadeau de Noel adolescente est une lampe champignon blanche et noire, une pure laideur !

  33. Alexei Vasiliev • 12/19/2017 10:02:36 AM

    I remember i got a battery operated vacuum cleaner for computer keyboards - I never used it :-)

  34. Arturo • 12/19/2017 10:03:02 AM

    A friend gave me a Freddy Kruger costume as a Christmas gift decades ago; still scratching my head about that one.

  35. Ken Balaz • 12/19/2017 10:03:07 AM

    one year I received a golfing outfit. Green golf shirt, green golf pants. What made it strange is person who gifted it knew I hated green and wouldn't wear it?

  36. robyn wagar • 12/19/2017 10:03:12 AM

    egg ornament for christmas tree

  37. Mary G • 12/19/2017 10:03:32 AM

    Our first Christmas together, my husband made me up a Christmas stocking. Along with the usual goodies like candy etc, I got a bottle of really cheap wine and a turnip. As I did not like wine and have never quite been able to find out why the turnip, yeah, it was weird.

  38. Tara Terry • 12/19/2017 10:03:37 AM

    I once received a basket with sample shampoo and conditioner packets that had been opened.

  39. Zowie Douglas • 12/19/2017 10:04:15 AM

    Roland Salvador - Fuzzy Handcuffs

  42. Nicole Flax • 12/19/2017 10:05:18 AM

    I asked for an air popcorn maker. I got their old one from the 70's, guess 'new' wasn't implicit.

  43. valerie theberge • 12/19/2017 10:05:20 AM

    I have never received a strangest Christmas gift. My loved ones would never do that to me :)

  44. Tricia Boychuk • 12/19/2017 10:05:29 AM

    I got a shoe horn from My Mommy! lol At the time, I was like wtf?! But now I really need it & use it all the time. Plus, she passed away in 2011 so it has a lot of meaning now❤️

  45. ARMAN PARSI • 12/19/2017 10:06:01 AM

    A pack of cigarettes from a friend of mine that was a smoker. Although I did not smoke. I guess it is true that some people buy gifts at gas stations.

  46. Danielle Doucette • 12/19/2017 10:06:36 AM

    a shower mat. yeah, thanks dad...its what i always wanted :/

    I'm sure one has existed but I can't think of a strange gift

  52. Renee Rowe • 12/19/2017 10:07:33 AM

    The strangest gift I’ve ever received was a picture of the gift inside a gift wrapped box, special ordered & delivery had been delayed. I never got that gift at all...lol Once my uncle wrapped a brick for my very young brother & he was so upset & dissapointed & embarassed, especially when my uncle said, well kid let’s see you break that brick like you do all your other toys! Well my brother broke the brick!! Lmao

  53. Cathy Maltese • 12/19/2017 10:07:37 AM

  56. Kevin Walton • 12/19/2017 10:08:01 AM

  58. Linda Leroux • 12/19/2017 10:08:27 AM

    My strangest gift was a card......My husband waiting until Dec 24th of course and stopped at a little local store to get a card on his way home.....well they did not have any wife so he got grandmother and scratched it out and put Wife!! Only him! Winning this phone would sure make up for this!! Thanks for the chance!!

  59. Ann richer-doyle • 12/19/2017 10:08:50 AM

    When I was 8 years old, my grand-mother gave me the ugliest hat! On top of it, it was a few sizes too big! What a disappointment!

  60. Rosemarie • 12/19/2017 10:09:12 AM


  61. Amy Cheverie • 12/19/2017 10:09:30 AM

    Funny I was just thinking about this earlier... my grandmother is a notorious regifter. One year she actuallu gave me a pair of "nice" underwear that no longer fit her... yikes. Safe to say I never wore them.

  62. John Cartmel • 12/19/2017 10:10:44 AM

  63. Irene Anderson • 12/19/2017 10:10:54 AM

  64. kristen visser • 12/19/2017 10:11:05 AM

  65. Darlene Jilks • 12/19/2017 10:11:19 AM

  66. Caila Seeley • 12/19/2017 10:11:30 AM

    The strangest gift I’ve ever received was underwear stuffed in paper towel rolls and wrapped. I’m not sure why they weren’t kept in the original package so it made me wonder if they were already tried on... eww!

  67. Matt Matos • 12/19/2017 10:11:52 AM

    The strangest gift was when I received some vintage adult magazines, as a teen I was happy, but it was an awkward situation...

  68. PENNY COLEMAN • 12/19/2017 10:12:42 AM

    #giveaway #12DaysofGiveaway #contest #LG well I just lost my phone so this would have been ideal....last week. However, I can't be without a phone so had to replace it. The strangest Christmas gift I have ever received was a grey sweatsuit...not lulu lemon or bench but just a grey shapeless sweatsuit a size too big.

  69. Ray Turner • 12/19/2017 10:12:58 AM

    A multi coloured high top running shoe phone!

  70. Calla C. • 12/19/2017 10:13:16 AM

    My mother in law gave me to combs for my hair that she purchased at a craft show. They were decorate with safety pins, feathers and beads (ugh!) and were SOOOO heavy they couldn't possibly stay in anyone's hair! (but who would want them too??)

  71. Stephanie Hurtubise • 12/19/2017 10:13:55 AM

    When I was dating my ex, his mother gave me this gaudy pink t-shirt with a ridiculous quote on the front. This was after a couple of years of saying how much I hate the colour pink. The shirt wasn't even in my size! Thankfully I used the size as an excuse to return it without hurting her feelings!

  72. Jean Steep • 12/19/2017 10:14:02 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was when we were young and we decided to look in the closet where the gifts were. We found each and everyone's gift. When it came to Christmas Morning. I received a toy truck. My brother received a doll. Then to top it off we went to Grandmother's house to have Christmas dinner with them the day after. When it came to unwrapping our gifts from Grandma and Grandpa the first ones had a piece of coal then the second one was a carrot. Lol she found also but eventually we received the right gifts. All the time they we laughing at our expressions.

  73. Lori Bartlett • 12/19/2017 10:14:25 AM

    Light Bulbs!!! Then after opening them, I got the real present - Kenner easybake oven:)

  76. Jennifer Bradley • 12/19/2017 10:15:46 AM

    Most awkward was a 101 Creative Romantic ideas from my sister in law, to be opened in front of my in-laws.

  77. Lawrence Petrie • 12/19/2017 10:16:22 AM

  82. Kim Renaud • 12/19/2017 10:18:26 AM

    One year my boyfriend signed me up for cooking class. Talk about an insult!!

  83. Lyle Opseth • 12/19/2017 10:18:26 AM

    When I was a bachelor, I jokingly told my sister and mother I used a bar of soap to wash my hair. They believed me. So I got shampoo for Christmas.

  84. Donna Damelio • 12/19/2017 10:18:32 AM

    My strangest Christmas gift was from an older relative. A pair of granny panties and a flower pot. I was in my 20’s. Hummm. Good for a laugh

  85. Garnet Leib • 12/19/2017 10:19:00 AM

    I once got a Pig's Bladder Balloon from a neighbor lady when I was a Kid

  86. Matthew Jones • 12/19/2017 10:19:06 AM

    My strangest gift, would have to be my toosie.... it is not a onesie, it fits 2 people and we can hold hands in the middle. We cooked in it once, it was very hard because we both only have one arm free.

  87. Anika Paul • 12/19/2017 10:19:35 AM

    The weird Xmas gift I have got is a pair of non matching socks

  88. Susan King • 12/19/2017 10:19:37 AM

    Some kind of dremel tool from my husband...he uses it more than I ever have!

  91. Brenda Noble • 12/19/2017 10:20:18 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was an empty box. Nice color

  92. Cal JJ • 12/19/2017 10:20:55 AM

    My great grandfather gave me the wallet that I had gifted to him the year before, lol.

  93. Toby Collins • 12/19/2017 10:21:01 AM

    A pumpkin gutter! Seriously, you add it to a drill...drill wasn’t included...useless lol

  94. Diane Floyd • 12/19/2017 10:21:57 AM

    My strangest gift was a gift exchange from work where I got socks and nylons! Never participated in the gift exchange again after that!

  95. Miles B • 12/19/2017 10:22:21 AM

    strangest gift was boxer shorts 2 sizes too big

  96. jennifer stine • 12/19/2017 10:25:42 AM

    The strangest gift I've received was a homemade yarn embroidered plastic square... utensil container? It was cylindrical and had yarnwork flat tenticals coming out from the sides. Maybe it was a piece of art to display? I don't know what it was or what it was for.

  97. Julia Milinkis • 12/19/2017 10:26:01 AM

    I would say a box inside of a box inside of a box and the smallest box was empty lol

  98. Pauline M. • 12/19/2017 10:26:42 AM

    Pauline Lafrance Montague. A box of cereal from my "secret Santa".

  99. Zvi Vaxman • 12/19/2017 10:27:03 AM

    an expired gift card... wasn't cool!

  100. Gail Butler • 12/19/2017 10:27:31 AM

    The strangest gift was a non-gift. When I was 7, mom had to do catalogue shopping as dad was away and she did not drive. I had asked for a Mr. Potato Head. They were out of stock so there was nothing under the tree for me from Santa. My mom told me my list 'blew away'. And when Santa found it, he would deliver the gift even if it was in January. If finally arrived, but was not a fun Christma for me when my 4 siblings all got gifts from Santa. Merry Christmas and thanks for the opportunity! #giveaway #12DaysofGiveaway #contest #LG

  101. Nicole Morris • 12/19/2017 10:27:47 AM

    The strangest gift I've ever received was a self-helo book. I thought I was doing ok at this life thing but guess not!

  102. Denyelle Theriault • 12/19/2017 10:28:17 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I have ever gotten is an elmo ice cream maker from my mom recently. I'm in my forties and I don't have children so not sure what was going on with that.

  103. Karen Stewart • 12/19/2017 10:28:25 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a travel coffee mug that plugs into the cigarette lighter of the car. The strange thing was it obviously came from a secondhand store because it looked like it was 20 years old. The box was old and beat up. I kept it for years because it made me smile. Lovely sentiment but I was afraid to plug it in and have sparks flying lol.

  104. Patsy • 12/19/2017 10:29:01 AM

    A can of Simoniz,LOL! Thanks :).

  105. Robyn • 12/19/2017 10:29:02 AM

    I have been very lucky and spoiled throughout my Christmas. I guess the goofiest gift might be a talking snowman. He is to be put in a bathroom as he says bathroom comments when you walk in, *(motion sensored)..."what ya doing..you look a bit flushed". I now share him at work...lol

  106. Larry Sibley • 12/19/2017 10:29:23 AM

    Popcorn kernels.

  107. Sheryl Hodgson • 12/19/2017 10:29:29 AM

    My strangest gift was a lint brush in a work gift exchange.

  108. Cathy M. Lee • 12/19/2017 10:29:49 AM

    A bag of chips and a chocolate bar very strange gifts.

  109. Lynda Cook • 12/19/2017 10:30:11 AM

    I received gift cards for stores that are not even in my area, so they were no good to me!

  110. Janice Meehan • 12/19/2017 10:30:57 AM

    Strangest gift was a pet rock.

  111. anne woolridge • 12/19/2017 10:31:10 AM

    Te strangest gift I ever received was a BIG, HEAVY TURTLENECK SWEATER- not good when you're having hot flashes!!! I gave it away!!

  112. Omar Gani • 12/19/2017 10:31:20 AM

    My sister give me sexy silk PJ one year. Totally gross! until i found out it was meant for her boyfriend.....But I kept it anyway. lol.

  113. jodi frechette • 12/19/2017 10:31:41 AM

    When I was a teenager, my brother-in-law bought me a toothbrush. Not an electric one, just a regular,everyday toothbrush. Needless to say, as a teenage girl,with so many choices out there, I was a little disappointed. I put on a smile and said thank you.

  114. Lori P • 12/19/2017 10:31:44 AM

    A gift I bought and wrapped myself that was to myself..🙂

  115. Sharon • 12/19/2017 10:31:52 AM

    Chocolates pretzels chocolate covered nuts etc from my husband. He didn't know what to get me so he over dosed n junk food. Ughh.

  116. Matt Fischer • 12/19/2017 10:32:09 AM

    My mother gave me a suitcase set for Xmas .. very strange indeed...didn't take long to figure it out though lol

  117. Jen M • 12/19/2017 10:32:33 AM

    The strangest gift I received was an embossing stamp with a random incomplete message. It was left in my stocking. I have three theories, Santa hit the eggnog hard before delivering presents, he was appealing to my mystery solving side or we have been playing the longest game of hangman ever known.

  118. Michelle W • 12/19/2017 10:34:09 AM

    The strangest thing I received was a tooth pick holder, shaped like an elephant! No idea why, I don’t use toothpicks or like elephants lol

    Strangest gift.....a wooden elephant. Not strange on it's own but the following year came a wooden armadillo from the same friend. She said she got it for my 'collection'...but she had started the 'collection' for me the year before! Another friend added a wooden bird later that year.

  120. Lynne Picard • 12/19/2017 10:35:02 AM

    My sister-in-law thought she’d be funny and gifted me a small 7 inch little Christmas stocking filled with a couple of black BBQ Charcoal as a joke. LOL got a good laugh out of it.

  121. Patrick Leblanc • 12/19/2017 10:35:06 AM

    A hand knitted p***s heater from my mother, can you believe it.lol My phone just died last week so sure could use a new one. Thanks Tribute for these yearly 12 years of giveaways contests and oh yeah, Happy Holidays everyone!

  122. Sandy Trojansek • 12/19/2017 10:35:18 AM

    The ugliest of Christmas sweaters ever!! It wasn't even something I wanted to donate to anyone!

  123. Sandra Hounslow • 12/19/2017 10:35:28 AM

    the strangest Christmas gift I got was a coulourful mumu (caftan style dress) when I was about 30 from my Mother-in-Law! So usgly and definitely not age appropriate. Why????

  124. Jonathan thoms • 12/19/2017 10:35:40 AM

    I once got a big old jar of pickled eggs and bottle of wine from my corner store lol

  125. Deanna • 12/19/2017 10:35:58 AM

    I received a key in the mail to my house no return address needless to say we changed the locks

  126. Susan Spence • 12/19/2017 10:36:13 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a pair of used shoes dyed to wear with a new outfit.

  127. Debbie M • 12/19/2017 10:36:50 AM

    I never received a strange Christmas gift

  128. Jenn Meade • 12/19/2017 10:37:21 AM

    Jenn Meade - the strangest gift I ever received was actually two-fold. My gift was inside a box that had an in-shower coffee maker on it with the announcement that it helps to save time and use the hot water from your shower to make your morning coffee - this was obviously a gag box and when I opened it inside were tat-toupees (tattoo toupee) that you stick on your head to cover bald spots.... I had mentioned to my sister that I was losing my hair, it was thinning on top and you could see my scalp so she thoughtfully got me the temporary tattoos..lol and thus began our newest Christmas tradition on who can give each other the tackiest gift at Christmas :)

  129. Steve P. • 12/19/2017 10:37:23 AM

    A plush teddy bear night lamp instead of a R/C car.

  130. Susie Q • 12/19/2017 10:37:50 AM

    The strangest Christmas Gift I received came wrapped in a small square box - made to look like a jewellery box and was wrapped with a ribbon nice tied into a bow. I opened it up just after dinner as it was neatly put by my setting at the dinner table. When I opened it up I was surprised to see a CLAY WORM which you put in a planter to see if the soil is moist! Thank you Tribute.ca!

  131. jay nelson • 12/19/2017 10:37:50 AM

    When I was a teen I received rather frilly underwear from an aunt whom I rarely ever saw. It was uncomfortable writing the than you letter - and the undies were too small.

  132. kevin Ritchie • 12/19/2017 10:37:54 AM

    A fruit cake

  133. Sam • 12/19/2017 10:37:59 AM

    I received cans of salmon..a little odd?

  134. Natasha • 12/19/2017 10:38:52 AM

    The strangest thing i ever got for Christmas was a crocodile skin brief case with a lock and key from Italy.It looked like a purse but it wasn't my friend bought it while she was there.😅

  135. Patrick Leblanc • 12/19/2017 10:38:52 AM

    ok how about this.. a hand knitted peter heater ....lol Sure could use a new phone as mine died just last week. Thanks for the 12 days of christmas giveaways Tribute, amazing prizes again this year!! Happy Holidays everyone!!

  136. Terri Baker • 12/19/2017 10:39:09 AM

    I received a yogurt maker. I would never make my own yogurt....yuck. I am pretty sure it was a re-gift.

  137. Louise Phaneuf • 12/19/2017 10:39:43 AM

    a scarf with snowman on it

  138. sergey • 12/19/2017 10:40:11 AM

    the strangest gift I ever gotten was weird socks

  139. Ammie Sue Parsons • 12/19/2017 10:40:28 AM

    One year I was longing for this beautiful coat with a fur collar, Christmas morning I was so pleased to see a large rectangular box that looked like it would hold the coat perfectly. I opened it up as quick as I could and to my surprise it was a used VCR, lets keep in mind it was 1996. I am sure I showed my disappoinment, but the old VCR did get a bit of use! #funnynotfunny

  140. william draper • 12/19/2017 10:40:32 AM

    a lump of coal

  141. Roxanne • 12/19/2017 10:40:44 AM

    The strangest gift was a wedding present from my Uncle. Love him to bits but he is different. He is a scholar. My new husband at the time opened out gift in front of everyone and it was an oversized off the shoulder bag. It was real leather. It was huge. The leather is very hard. It has one of those flaps rather than a proper closing zipper or closure. Unfortunately we never had the opportunity to use it. It is way too heavy and bulky to be practical. But I have to say the bag totally reminds me of him. It is not a present we look at today and ask ourselves if we know who gave it to us.

  142. Velma • 12/19/2017 10:40:47 AM

    The weirdest gift I ever got was a really ugly western scarf. Too make it worse it had plastic shiny beads. The colour was so loud I wondered if it was a joke. A quick peak cleared any doubt; they thought I would be delighted! It was like an ugly Christmas Sweater! I honestly am not sure anyone would wear it. Yikes.

  143. Bradley Cook • 12/19/2017 10:41:22 AM

    I once got a box of cereal for Christmas. Not even a festive box or anything, just a normal box of Cheerios.

  144. Amanda Masters • 12/19/2017 10:41:40 AM

    An empty wicker basket that was tiny! Like the size of my hand. I don't know ow what they thought I would put in it but I think you are meant to use the basket as the holder of the proper gift.

  145. Kelly Enright • 12/19/2017 10:41:46 AM

    An old textbook

  146. Colin Fox • 12/19/2017 10:43:13 AM

    I once received a used socket set but the handle was missing. A bunch of sockets but no way to use them.

  147. Andrea Patel • 12/19/2017 10:43:18 AM

    Cheap perfume and socks from a boyfriend in highschool. Broke up right after

  148. Bernadette Evans • 12/19/2017 10:43:25 AM

    The first year I moved in with my boyfriend his mom got me a Glass jar with a lid... strange and cheap.

  149. Shan H • 12/19/2017 10:43:50 AM

    My sister gave me dryer lint vacuum attachment. No one quite knows what to say when someone gives you a dryer lint vacuum attachment!😂

  150. Mari.M • 12/19/2017 10:43:52 AM

    potato chips

  151. Lori Lehner • 12/19/2017 10:43:56 AM

    My Mother in law gave me a weigh scale for Christmas!

  152. Deborah P. • 12/19/2017 10:44:15 AM

    My first Christmas with my new in laws and large extended family.Gift exchanging time came up I tried to stay in the back not expecting anything. When the youngest niece 3 shoved a gold wrapped package into my hand and excitedly said open it! Now all eyes are on me (I noticed my Mom in law twitching?) Inside this golden package were the largest underwear I have ever seen. Not sure who they were meant for lol but my little niece was very proud and spread them over the footstool like a table cloth. Welcome to the family.

  153. Betti Stiff • 12/19/2017 10:45:23 AM

    My Mom used to leave us gifts of meat - a nice ham, a particularly meaty package of bacon, etc. Always chosen and given with LOVE.

  154. Cecilia Lopez • 12/19/2017 10:45:37 AM

    Weirdest gift I ever got was a grapefruit.

  155. Brook Thomas • 12/19/2017 10:46:02 AM

    The strangest gift I've ever received was a 'Summers Eve' gift set 🤣🤣🤣

  156. Maria • 12/19/2017 10:47:30 AM

    My mother in law gave me 1.99 can opener - nicely wrapped. That's it - nothing else

  157. Dayle Long • 12/19/2017 10:48:45 AM

    One year it was nothing for Christmas

  158. Andrew Farinha • 12/19/2017 10:48:47 AM

    Mr. Potato Head ?

  159. Mary Tamaki • 12/19/2017 10:48:50 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I ever received, NO LIE!, was from my next door neighbour who owned a funeral home. I guess yearly they would receive ornaments from various suppliers and they re gifted several to me. Now, I have no problem with re gifting but....

  160. Joanne Woodworth • 12/19/2017 10:48:57 AM

    My late great Aunt used to give me and my sisters revealing lingerie which could make for a good laugh on Christmas morning!

  161. Penny Connolly • 12/19/2017 10:49:06 AM

    A gift card that was not validated, so worthless

  162. Tasha May Poirier • 12/19/2017 10:49:39 AM

    It might not be strange but a few years ago I got a gift from my mother-in-law that I had previously got for her the year before so she regifted it back haha

  163. Racheal Boyd • 12/19/2017 10:49:51 AM

    A unicorn head to mount on my fireplace😆

  164. Sandra J Lebeau • 12/19/2017 10:49:53 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was two paper mache pigs, I have no idea why I don't collect anything like that, funny thing I kept them because they were so hideous as a conversation piece.

  165. Marla pollard • 12/19/2017 10:49:55 AM

    my dad gave me pyjamas that were triple my size when I was 16 - I was so upset and cried for days :(

  166. Daniel Barta • 12/19/2017 10:50:25 AM

    Jingle Bell musical socks.

  167. Danielle • 12/19/2017 10:51:04 AM

    Strangest gift: a large can of tomato sauce from my aunt. (a gag hiding the real gift)

  168. Stephen Barta • 12/19/2017 10:51:40 AM

    Grinch underwear.

  169. Christine Barta • 12/19/2017 10:52:36 AM

    Foam curlers.

  170. Jon Therriault • 12/19/2017 10:52:42 AM

    The strangest (and laziest) gift I ever received was a half eaten box of chocolates... and not half the box, half of almost every chocolate!

  171. Cheryl Ing • 12/19/2017 10:53:26 AM

    A ski jacket that must have been in the reject bin. I couldn’t get my hand through to the other side. It was all twisted inside. Helly Hanson go figure.

  172. Deb Morris • 12/19/2017 10:54:26 AM

    The year I got 3 microwave ovens, don't tell everyone the same thing when asked what you want for Christmas 🎄

  173. Janet Knudsen • 12/19/2017 10:55:02 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received is a bubble gum machine that takes nickels.

  174. Adam Barta • 12/19/2017 10:55:13 AM

    A teletubbie

  175. Karyn • 12/19/2017 10:56:36 AM

    a set of hangers? i didn't even need any....

  176. Shelly Green • 12/19/2017 10:56:54 AM

    Bubble bath from my mother-in-law. We had a stand up shower. My husband told her I was too big to bathe in the sink. The next year...more bubble bath 😂

  177. John Puros • 12/19/2017 10:58:34 AM

    A CHIA Pet from my Dear Mom. LOL!

  178. isabella mule • 12/19/2017 10:59:01 AM

    I got a box of chocolate that i didn't like and they knew the one that i like

  179. Jaimie • 12/19/2017 10:59:37 AM

    A piece of plastic joke poop, it was a running gag with my uncle for years

  180. Roxana Reid • 12/19/2017 10:59:57 AM

    An ugly sequin evening bag

  181. debbie paisley • 12/19/2017 11:00:42 AM

    One year at Christmas I received a used electric razor. It had hair all over it, it was really gross.

  182. Dorothy Mack • 12/19/2017 11:01:31 AM

    I once got a box of various figurines - little dogs, an angel, a bird etc. They was no theme or connection - they were utterly random.

  183. Sandra Rooke • 12/19/2017 11:01:32 AM

    I once received a lamb for Christmas!

  184. A.J • 12/19/2017 11:01:50 AM

    I just velvet hair scrunchies through a secret Santa yesterday from work! lol. It was super strange because it somehow was at the top of my wish list of a site my coworkers and I used. I am almost certain I did not put it there. Why? Because I am a 38 year old guy with very short hair! lol I will conclude with that the "gift" is in the giving not receiving; I am grateful to be alive today.

  185. Margaret Smith • 12/19/2017 11:03:24 AM

    The strangest gift I received was a Betsy-Wetsy doll. You could put water in a baby bottle, feed her and she would wet her pants. Probably accurate-that's what babies do, right? also probably the reason I never had children.

  186. Sage Faew • 12/19/2017 11:03:40 AM

    Weirdest gift was a visit from my parents when i had told them not to come

  187. Karla Sousa • 12/19/2017 11:03:50 AM

    That would be a talking ice cream scoop given to me by my husband.We still laugh about it , many years later!!

  188. Huong Tran • 12/19/2017 11:04:22 AM

    I received a silver decorative bowl from a coworker.

  189. Lorraine Johannson • 12/19/2017 11:04:49 AM

    The oddest Christmas gift I have received was a large blown glass vase almost the size of a coffee table. Someone went to a lot of work to make it and someone thought of me and bought it...what do I do with that? (:

  190. caroline belanger briere • 12/19/2017 11:05:16 AM

    One Christmas, I received a bottle of the "hottest" ever sauce. Never tried it.

  194. Tosha lyn • 12/19/2017 11:07:44 AM

    Hmm,I don't think I've ever gotten a strange gift. Thank goodness. I cherish and love everything I recieve :) Thank you for the chance to win a new phone. I'd love to be upgraded. I've had my Galaxy S4 since it came out!

  195. Gladys Marie • 12/19/2017 11:09:11 AM

    As a child a turning globe!?... but while on a cruise gift exchange some New Jersey Lottery scratch tickets and I'm from Western Canada!?

  196. Hailey kurzawski • 12/19/2017 11:11:00 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a pack of AA batteries. I thought at first they had bought me something that required batteries and were tricking me -nope literally just bought me batteries.

  197. Sarah Hounslow • 12/19/2017 11:11:28 AM

    One year for Christmas I received a ceramic dog that my Grandmother had poorly painted. I was about 16. I think she got the dog at the dollar store and then decided to try to paint it? I have no idea why she thought I would want this? My brothers received painted rocks (try explaining to a 7 year old why he's getting a rock for Christmas) and my Mother (this was her mother-in-law) received a muu-muu (my Mother is not a big lady) so I guess I shouldn't feel badly. Another year we all received sweatshirts where she had ironed on various fabric designs and used the puffy fabric paint to bedazzle it. That was an interesting Christmas as well.

  198. Anna Luczka • 12/19/2017 11:12:03 AM

    a ceramic hand to hold rings, creepy looking

  199. Ryan Buschemeyer • 12/19/2017 11:12:02 AM

    And interesting question... Nothing strange comes to mind... but the most odd/interesting thing I ever received was one of those Rocket kits. I had never had one before or expressed interest either, but for some reason my brother just got me one for Christmas one year.

  200. Richard Lefebvre • 12/19/2017 11:12:10 AM

    a picture of a fish for a wedding present

  203. Kathryn K • 12/19/2017 11:12:59 AM

    A pink paisley flannel shirt - which I (loyally) wore - since it was a gift from a loved one. I finally admitted I didn't like it and stopped pretending after a year or so...

  204. Stephanie LaPlante • 12/19/2017 11:13:14 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift that I ever received was a screaming rubber chicken.

  205. Joanne Guay • 12/19/2017 11:14:37 AM

  206. jay zaal • 12/19/2017 11:15:03 AM

    literally nothing. ;)

  207. Bev Smithson • 12/19/2017 11:16:33 AM

  208. Suky K • 12/19/2017 11:16:42 AM

    I got a PedEgg (it removes dead skin for the feet)

  209. Janice Cournoyer • 12/19/2017 11:17:06 AM

    I received a tool kit from my brother to fix cars. I didn't even own a car at the time. Must have been a good sale, and I have no idea how to fix a car haha

  210. Colin Drake • 12/19/2017 11:17:20 AM

    Along the same lines of this prize actually, I once received a iPhone replica that was a flask. Sure it probably seemed like a good idea, but the stickers and bulkiness just shouted knockoff - plus I had to drink out of my phone antenna, which is something very strange to see!

  211. Tammy Harrison • 12/19/2017 11:18:55 AM

    I received a used curling iron one year... :)

  212. Alayne Langford • 12/19/2017 11:19:34 AM

    I received a small box in the mail, no return address, with used AA batteries in it! This was mailed to my address over 25 years ago, and to this day, I still do not know who sent it and why!? Strange or what!?

  213. Cheryl Germain • 12/19/2017 11:19:38 AM

    That would be the fabric remote control holder that drapes over the arm of a sofa and features a large, stuffed cat's head.

  214. Jorin • 12/19/2017 11:20:14 AM

    Ugly sweater.

  215. Craig Miller • 12/19/2017 11:21:07 AM

    A raccoon brush. I was 19 at the time. It was the type of thing you’d give a 5 year old.

  216. Erin Lewis • 12/19/2017 11:21:30 AM

    Flannel pajamas from Mariposa from my new boyfriend (now husband)...just thought it was funny.

  217. amanda paddock • 12/19/2017 11:22:23 AM

  227. Brenda • 12/19/2017 11:28:10 AM

    A spider ornament--I thought it was weird until I read the story about its origins. Now I love it and give them as gifts!

  228. Kerry Grant • 12/19/2017 11:28:42 AM

    I got the book "Final Exit". They were trying to tell me something? I kept the book. It still might come in handy.

  229. Roy Hamaura • 12/19/2017 11:29:26 AM

    It was called an electric neck massager but it looked like a small d**do.

  230. Pamela Tom • 12/19/2017 11:29:42 AM

  236. Lisa VanBekkum • 12/19/2017 11:33:24 AM

    Strangest gift I ever received was a fish you mount on the wall that sings Don't worry be happy! I do not fish, do not eat fish and basically am not a fish person at all. Must have been a re gift. Not as bad as my husband thou who once got a Willy Warmer...yep a little knitted warmer for his junk.

    I received a box of used books.

  250. Julia Herperger • 12/19/2017 11:47:17 AM

    The weirdest gift I got (from an ex boyfriend) was....he gave me his old, used, banged up camera! And, to top it off, he bought a brand-new camera - for himself! What a terrible gift. Thanks for the chance!

  251. Dan Maibroda • 12/19/2017 11:47:20 AM

    I once received a plastic Santa and reindeer.

  252. Kristen Visser • 12/19/2017 11:47:59 AM

    Can't say I've ever been given a strange gift. However I did participate in a used gift exchange game and my gift was a box full of kinder egg toys (no chocolate....just the toys)

  253. Antonio Maucieri • 12/19/2017 11:48:32 AM

    The weirdest gift I've ever recieved for Christmas was a box of Q-Tips. Guess I have a bad time listening or something :s

  256. GLENYS LITTLE • 12/19/2017 11:49:20 AM


  257. Cindy L • 12/19/2017 11:50:22 AM

    A rabbit. I had to return it .. but a baby bunny.

  258. Debra binning • 12/19/2017 11:51:46 AM

    Just before we were married my husbands grandmother, gave us a Christmas present. Inside the box was a jar of pickles and some socks. No explanation - nothing.

  259. Pierre Paquette • 12/19/2017 11:52:25 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I ever received was a pair of fundies.

  260. Adam Chan • 12/19/2017 11:53:16 AM

    15 dollars in pennies in a box...it didn't make 'cents' because pennies were already obsolete

  261. Lester Cabug • 12/19/2017 11:53:16 AM

    A bath bomb. I don't take baths

  262. William Stewart • 12/19/2017 11:53:26 AM

    A toilet brush.

  263. Valerie Albo • 12/19/2017 11:53:38 AM

    The worst gift I got at Christmas was from my aunt in England. I was about 18 and she sent me a kit to make a necklace with plastic bits. Suitable for a 10 year old. I guess she couldn't imagine me grownup. The thought was wonderful though.

  264. Kelly Strachan • 12/19/2017 11:54:03 AM

    A stuffed gorilla.

  265. Pierre Giroux • 12/19/2017 11:55:01 AM

    A change holder for the car that calculates how much you put in...But not when you take out ... Useless

  266. Winnie Chuang • 12/19/2017 11:56:10 AM

    A pair of men's shoes that were actually for another person and mistakenly given to me.

  267. Nicole Bonito • 12/19/2017 11:57:29 AM

    When I was young I got a spy novel that my mom meant to give to my dad!

  268. Christy e • 12/19/2017 11:57:41 AM

  273. Tina M • 12/19/2017 12:03:06 PM

    The strangest gift I ever got was a box of mixed nuts - but I'm deathly allergic to peanuts!

  274. Monica Sisson • 12/19/2017 12:04:28 PM

    I can't recall any strange gifts I've received!

  275. Marilyn Stanley • 12/19/2017 12:05:20 PM

    I guess I have been very lucky over the years - not one strange, unusual or unwanted Christmas that I can recall...

  276. Louise Smith • 12/19/2017 12:06:24 PM

    The worst gift I ever got was a vacuum cleaner. I hate vacuuming and so why would I want a Vacuum?

  277. Darla Blackmore • 12/19/2017 12:08:15 PM

    A secret santa gift that was some sort of bag - not sure what exactly it was for.

  288. Liisa Stover • 12/19/2017 12:15:49 PM

    I got what I believed to be a strange gift. Before the Harry Potter mania, my aunt got me the first 3 books in the series. Bright, colourfull, childish looking books!! I was 27 years old!! I thought she was crazy!! But, as everyone now knows......they were amazing!!! and I went on to read the whole series, even lining up at midnight for the final instalment. Ya never know, eh?!?

  289. Carley Graham • 12/19/2017 12:16:31 PM

    Daniel Schneider. I don't I ever had a strange Christmas. They were all very nice to be together with family, food, memories and of course presents!

  298. Rita Elliot • 12/19/2017 12:25:30 PM

    A travel book to Europe and I was going nowhere! Guess they thought reading about the destination would satisfy my travel bug!

  299. Athena D • 12/19/2017 12:25:45 PM

    A fancy towel set as a shower gift. What made it strange was the strong scent of cedar... you could tell it had been stored for years and then regifted.

  300. Amber Smith • 12/19/2017 12:26:12 PM

    The oddest gift I've ever gotten was a homemade basket of jams... THAT I MADE FOR THEM THE YEAR BEFORE LOL!! Talk about a re-gifting error. Thanks for the all the giveaway - Merry Christmas!

  301. Heather Bush • 12/19/2017 12:26:52 PM

    okay, this is going back a few years - but I lived in an apartment and had a neighbour who was eccentric - I received a bicycle hand pump as a gift - I didn't own a bike.

  302. David Ashawasega • 12/19/2017 12:26:59 PM

  304. Vivian Dionne • 12/19/2017 12:27:42 PM

    The strangest Christmas gift I received was a tiny screwdriver. As it turned out, it came in very handy when the screws came out of my glasses!

  305. Debbie Bashford • 12/19/2017 12:28:42 PM

    it was a weird K-tel exerciser that attached to a door knob and had 2 ropes with 4 loops

  306. Renee snow • 12/19/2017 12:28:44 PM


  307. Anita Farnsworth • 12/19/2017 12:30:29 PM

    Hubby was working out of town & never got home until Christmas Eve so he went Christmas “shopping” at a gas station on the way. I believe I got an air freshener, window scraper, candy & lotto tickets, lol. It’s the thought that counts I guess!

  308. Sonny Wong • 12/19/2017 12:30:51 PM

    A pack of playing cards from the local Dollar store.

  309. Brian Hwang • 12/19/2017 12:32:02 PM

    The weirdest gift I ever got for Christmas was a Domo toaster from my brother. So odd because he knew I didn't really eat sliced bread and I have no other Domo memorabilia. Anyway, a G6 would be awesome upgrade for my half decade old LG! Thanks!

  310. Daniel Schneider • 12/19/2017 12:32:27 PM

    Sorry I misread the question. Daniel Schneider. The strangest gift I ever received was? Well honestly every gift I ever received was good. I guess I haven't ever received a strange gift.

  311. Agnes Marshall • 12/19/2017 12:33:12 PM

    My strangest gift was a deluxe snow clearing brush for my car when I already had two other brushes.

  313. Lesley de la Salle • 12/19/2017 12:36:09 PM

    We got this piece of fabric that had flower seeds woven into the fabric and you were supposed to cover it with dirt and flowers would grow. We received this from my husband’s aunt, the box was pretty beaten up, it looked like it was 20 years old and it had been regifted, needless to say we didn’t ‘plant’ our fabric seeds!?!

  314. MARION SMITH • 12/19/2017 12:39:04 PM

    well I could name a few non mentionables but I can' t for everyone to see. But when you have lots of family members with different tastes. sometimes its a toss up on what you will get. But we all have a good laugh an a great time..

  315. tina hill • 12/19/2017 12:39:10 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a realistic looking fish from a craft show. We hung him up behind the bar and called him "Stevie Walleye." He had different outfits for different occasions- ie sunglasses, Santa hat...

  316. Paul Duggan • 12/19/2017 12:41:41 PM

    I just received an android smartwatch for Xmas and it will not sync with my old iPhone 4 . Winning this phone would put the icing on my Xmas pudding. Strange that I get a smart watch that I cannot use.

  317. Maureen Beisel • 12/19/2017 12:42:29 PM

    I got a shovel.......still wondering why??

  318. Mike • 12/19/2017 12:42:37 PM

    My ex girlfriends Mom gave me Balut wrapped in a box ! I couldn't say no but I couldn't eat it.

  319. Amberleah • 12/19/2017 12:43:46 PM

    I’ve never gotten a weird gift that I can remember.

  320. Kyla zerbes • 12/19/2017 12:48:25 PM

  321. Shawn Tschritter • 12/19/2017 12:49:26 PM

    Still waiting!

  322. Clarence L • 12/19/2017 12:49:47 PM

    The strangest Christmas gift was a box of seashells.

  331. Barbara Hickey • 12/19/2017 12:55:19 PM

    I never really enjoyed getting socks. When you need them, that's something you should get automatically.

  332. Leah • 12/19/2017 12:56:23 PM

    My secret Santa gave me a used tub of Body Shop lip balm and a box of Icy Square chocolates. I figured out who he was by the end of the day because his little sister was complaining in the playground that her chocolates were stolen in the middle of the night.

  333. Nancy Mah • 12/19/2017 12:56:30 PM

    Chocolate Easter bunny that's been frozen for almost 10 years

  334. leanne • 12/19/2017 12:57:11 PM

    I don't think I've ever received a really bad one :)

  335. John Allison • 12/19/2017 12:59:01 PM

    I once received for Christmas one of those plastic singing fish that you mount on the wall and it turns and sings when you go by. Why, why, why?

  336. Jean Au • 12/19/2017 1:01:45 PM

    Ivory soap

  337. Stephanie • 12/19/2017 1:02:31 PM

    The strangest gift I've ever received was a perfume bottle that was already open and probably used too

  338. Kim Causey • 12/19/2017 1:05:17 PM

    One Christmas I received a long sleeve, button up shirt...not so bad. But it was bright yellow with big, black stars all over it. I wish I had held in to it for a chuckle now. I’m pretty sure it went out with the Christmas trash.

  339. Alisa Petrisch • 12/19/2017 1:05:42 PM

    I received from my boss a re-gift I think, of bath gel and soap products that you would give to your mother. I couldn’t use it, not my taste in scents so I threw it out.

  340. Nicole Graham • 12/19/2017 1:05:54 PM

    The strangest gift was a steam, heating dish for a buffet. I never entertain. I saved it for a year, used it once and donated it.

  341. Sylvie Carpentier • 12/19/2017 1:07:05 PM

    An black elephant so hugly

  342. Ali • 12/19/2017 1:07:27 PM

  343. Alan Lemberg • 12/19/2017 1:07:54 PM

    when I was very small I received a hockey stick taller than I was while my oldest brother received one that was half his size.

  344. Luc Lafreniere • 12/19/2017 1:09:37 PM

    A christmas we have play a game with each one a used gift that we don't need anymore

  345. Mary • 12/19/2017 1:10:28 PM

    I got re-gifted a gift I had given the year before. It hurt my feelings a little, but I liked the gift so, whatever.

  346. Asia nguyen • 12/19/2017 1:10:37 PM

    One Christmas I got the Hannah monatana mall madness board game, I'm a boy and I was 19, thanks parents

    Titanic CD

  353. Christine Richards • 12/19/2017 1:15:26 PM

    I don't really have any super strange Christmas gifts to be honest. Although I did get some pretty ugly sweaters when we were kids!

  354. Deanna • 12/19/2017 1:15:49 PM

    Chinese food cookbook which my husband wanted me to see him buying because he had a nice surprise gift for me otherwise.

  355. Kimberly Neufeld • 12/19/2017 1:15:54 PM

    Hmm, strangest gift would have to have been a box of wall sockets.

  356. Kim Buckley • 12/19/2017 1:16:17 PM

    A snowman made out of a stick.

  357. Mia • 12/19/2017 1:20:03 PM

    I got a brown guinea pig in a small box under Christmas tree. I hate brown! I was like how will I like this little guy, why is he brown?? And then he was the sweetest guinea pig ever! And I loved him so much!

  358. Nathalie Gagnon • 12/19/2017 1:22:26 PM

  360. Diane Pereira • 12/19/2017 1:24:03 PM

  361. Darrah Bailey • 12/19/2017 1:24:33 PM

    I’d say getting this crystal chip and dip bowl set when I was 12 from my Grandma..

  362. Cheryl Heighington • 12/19/2017 1:25:41 PM

  363. Jennifer Chatham • 12/19/2017 1:26:28 PM

  370. Yvette McDermott • 12/19/2017 1:39:23 PM

    I received a few baby books when I was a teenager. It was the year my dad died and there were 5 of us and I was the oldest. I believe they mixed up the tags but I was sure surprised and I was the butt of jokes for awhile from my brothers. The gifts came from a local school in the city, but they didn't know us personally. Thanks for the great contest :)

  371. Jodi Mitrovic • 12/19/2017 1:39:32 PM

    My stepmom gave a portable cd player that played MP3s burnt onto a disc thinking that was the same thing as an ipod because they both played mp3s. She bought it on sale 8 months before Christmas so it couldn't be returned either...LOL

  374. Birdie Colleen Trafford • 12/19/2017 1:45:18 PM

    well, we weren't married very long and my husband and myself and our new baby, drove 2000 miles to see my family. All my husband got from my family was a little singing Christmas Tree which we never used because it scared our son. The eyes would open wide and the tree would shake. The other kids hated it too. It still remains in a closet under the stairs and that was like 27 years ago.

  380. Donna Maroulis • 12/19/2017 2:00:54 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received for Christmas was a bunch of chipped , somewhat obviously second hand ornaments from one of my teen-age son's girlfriends ( years ago ) . I later found out that she was from a very poor family and she had done the best she could. At the time though, I was a little confused if it was sincere or a joke. I took it at face value and thanked her. I'm so glad that I did.

  381. Kory M. • 12/19/2017 2:02:43 PM

    A bible with my first & last name on it and my last name spelled wrong.

  382. ming yoong • 12/19/2017 2:03:33 PM

    The strangest gift I have received was an inflatable pool. I lived in an apartment

  383. Dave Mattern • 12/19/2017 2:05:05 PM

    A DVD of a TV show that I had never heard of and never watched

  384. Melinda Jana • 12/19/2017 2:05:55 PM

    the strangest item I received was baby onesies, which is odd because I was unattached at the time and clearly not expecting a baby any time soon

  385. Theda Stoppel • 12/19/2017 2:06:00 PM

    Theda Stoppel, I think the strangest gift I ever received was a hair brush (and nothing else) from my husband....fail

  386. Kevin Dillman • 12/19/2017 2:06:25 PM

    I was once given a coffee maker and I don't drink coffee, but the person that gave it to me does.

  387. Michelle Laing • 12/19/2017 2:07:05 PM

    Probably a "Pooper Scooper" at a group function.

  388. cal li • 12/19/2017 2:08:01 PM

    My strangest gift was a mustard color sweater with feathers on it

  389. jenifer Freemantle • 12/19/2017 2:08:54 PM

  390. Gayle • 12/19/2017 2:10:05 PM

    In an all girl gift exchange , I got an expensive bar of soap for a man. ? I put it in the towel drawer as it smelled so nice.

  391. Safiya Brown • 12/19/2017 2:10:27 PM

    No lie. We did a Secret Santa at our school in elementary; and unfortunately and regrettably, I received a used plush doll as a gift. Needless to say I was sad, mad and embarrassed in front of the entire class. When I confronted my classmate about it, he simply lied and said it wasn’t used, when it obviously was. You should of seen the guilty look on his face.

  392. Gloria Stewart • 12/19/2017 2:11:26 PM


  393. Sandy Turner • 12/19/2017 2:13:17 PM

    I once got a Samurai Cat cookie jar, it was one of those Secret Santa exchanges at work where you get a number and pick a wrapped gift from the table. (I passed that one off on someone the next year.) Happy Holidays to all, I hope I win this for my son, his phone needs repaired! Thank you Tribute.ca

  394. Jahtawi H • 12/19/2017 2:13:27 PM

    I received a second hand, too-small-for-my-size t-shirt from a coworker during an office gift exchange

  396. Elizabeth Bryan • 12/19/2017 2:14:14 PM

    I have never received a strange Christmas gift, but I did receive a very odd 'clown candle' from my husband once for Valentine's Day...we still laugh about it! ;)

  397. Christa Whitfield • 12/19/2017 2:14:42 PM

    A credit card holder that was a freebie from a casino.

  398. Evelyn Beatson • 12/19/2017 2:19:30 PM

    I once got a set of baking utensils which I didn't need in the least as I already had some that I didn't use!!! and they knew it! not sure whether to call it strange or thoughtless, I guess both! Don't have a phone so this one would be the perfect gift for me!

  399. Karla Sceviour • 12/19/2017 2:24:28 PM

    Sad, but true. One year I didn't receive anything.

  404. Robert Miko • 12/19/2017 2:35:04 PM

    The strangest Christmas gift I ever got was finger hand gloves! Little multi fingers, that attach to each individual finger!? Absolutely alien...and frankly disturbingly horrific! :-) I used them twice...once while driving, and waving to a kid at a red light.second time was in the dark in a movie theatre. Both times were an EPIC fail. Finger hands are bad idea!! :-) :-) lol

  405. Pamela Manuel • 12/19/2017 2:35:16 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a Kindle Fire from my hubby on my birthday, because the previous Christmas he had given me a Kindle so I was like huh???

  406. Shannon Webber • 12/19/2017 2:36:05 PM

  409. Laurence Price • 12/19/2017 2:42:16 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a T-Shirt with a monster on it. This was a very scary gift. I returned it back to the store and got a credit and never told the person who got me the gift that I did this.

  410. Kathy Clark • 12/19/2017 2:42:26 PM

    My husband bought me a lace pant suit. You had to see it to appreciate how awful it was

    An old school fountain pen, but no ink or instructions. No idea how to put the parts together.

  420. Ming Kwang • 12/19/2017 2:51:37 PM

    The strangest present I ever received was a bright green satin blouse that was not only ill-fitting for my build but also didn't suit my age. I got it when I was 20 and it looked like something someone in her 40s would wear.

  421. Renee Jonsen • 12/19/2017 2:54:27 PM

    My weirdest gift was a bunch of plastic bananas with a fake bee attached. It was meant for hanging, but it went in the garbage pretty quickly. Fortunately, the friend never asked about it and the presents got better thereafter.

  422. Elaine Douglas • 12/19/2017 2:54:34 PM

    Nothing, lol, such a fibber. Received too many to mention. But if nothing else, always were a good laugh. And now we are able to watch these faux pas over and over. ;-)

  427. Kristi Friesen • 12/19/2017 3:01:21 PM

    I received a ceramic gecko one year. I wasn't sure what to do with it.

    I had 3 cats when I was young and my dad always gifted me everything and anything that looked similar to them, from pillows, clocks, figurines etc. I find it cute now that he's passed.

  430. Emily Schmuck • 12/19/2017 3:03:51 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a tiki monkey statue made of coconuts. I’m not joking at all - it even had giant plastic googely eyes and a grass skirt. Freightening!

  431. Yung Leong • 12/19/2017 3:04:40 PM

    The strangest gift I received was a used bottle of cologne!

  432. Sarah Mughal • 12/19/2017 3:07:31 PM

    Hi the strangest Christmas gift I received was a book on how to deal with divorce when I’m not in a relationship and I have never been married! It also came in a ‘congrats’ gift bag. Clearly, it was a recycled gift lol 😂

  433. Mireille fournier • 12/19/2017 3:08:24 PM

  437. Arlene Laughren • 12/19/2017 3:14:06 PM

    I do not think I ever received a strange Christmas gift. We circulate a Christmas Wish List to our family in November so we usually have a good idea of what each person wishes for. Maybe if someone ever gave you some underarm deoderant it would be strange. Are they trying to tell you something.

  438. Paul A. • 12/19/2017 3:14:56 PM

    Chocolate body paint. I am allergic to chocolate and am a bad artist. Why did theu even bother? Do theu even know me?!

  439. Fong • 12/19/2017 3:15:18 PM

    Hi get nothing Merry Birthday. Don't get a birthday gift or a Chrismas gift either one or the other sad Bday in December

  440. Emmy Katsis • 12/19/2017 3:15:21 PM

    The strangest gift (though quite funny) was a Boyfriend in a Box. It was everything I needed to convince colleagues that I had a new boyfriend - A bio, pictures to put on my desk, notes to attach to flower deliveries, telephone message slips etc. It was given to me by a colleague to get everyone off my back for being single! Thanks for the chance at this awesome prize!

  441. Jackie • 12/19/2017 3:18:34 PM

    Strangest gift was a shirt 3 sizes too big. Lol

  442. Faye Wong • 12/19/2017 3:18:33 PM

  448. Jim • 12/19/2017 3:25:53 PM

    I got a green rotary phone wrapped in a box filled with pop rocks last year. Very odd as the second gift was a Nintendo switch and games.

  449. Kimberly powell • 12/19/2017 3:25:58 PM

    A roll of toilet paper and a box of tide laundry soap. Roll tide

  450. Donna Wiebe • 12/19/2017 3:28:11 PM

    I don't remember a really strange gift but I am sure if you asked any of my kids, they would be able to tell you something strange that I gave them and thought was wonderful and they would really like. Moms just don't always understand what is good.

  451. nicky marie • 12/19/2017 3:30:47 PM

    The strangest gift I got was a singing fish plaque during a secret Santa game!

  453. Alisha Krywiak • 12/19/2017 3:31:01 PM

    I got a clothing steamer once from my boyfriend of 5 years. He said it was because I knew I wore clothes...

  454. Betty-Lou Hilderley • 12/19/2017 3:31:33 PM

    My boyfriend decided that on our first Christmas he would give me one of those ugly cheapo tea kettles. He is still a horrible gift giver, and after 31 years of marriage I still hope for something great.

  462. Linda Woolridge • 12/19/2017 3:48:57 PM

    I got a bowling ball because my GF wanted to join a league

  464. Johanna m • 12/19/2017 3:55:18 PM

    The strangest Christmas gift I ever received was a glass ball. I never did know what I had to do with it or what it did. So I just put it in my flower garden and when people asked what's that for....I honestly could say....I don't know

  465. Rebecca Roberts • 12/19/2017 3:56:09 PM

    I once received a very very expired box of chocolates...like 2 years expired! Eeek. Thanks for your generosity Tribute, wishing you and yours a very Happy Holiday season!

  469. Peter Gray • 12/19/2017 4:05:37 PM

    I think the strangest gift I got was when I was a kid and my grandparents gave me a bike for Christmas,it was cool but of course I couldn't ride it till the summer. My birthday is in the summer, it could have more made sense to give then This phone would be a crazy gift to win. Good luck everyone!!

  470. Jody Laderoute • 12/19/2017 4:06:05 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a moose calling horn at a work gift exchange. I don't hunt, I don't have a husband, I'm not outdoorsy, what exactly was I going to do with it? I ended up re-gifting it the next year, lol!

  471. Arlene Cheveldeaw • 12/19/2017 4:07:09 PM

    This year at our secret santa I got a Star Wars PORG mug. Now why would you give someone that for Xmas. I think it was either a gift they wanted or someone gave it to them and they re-gifted. Do you want this thing attached to your face while you drink your coffee. Think about it? My phone is an I-5 and could use an upgrade.

  472. Helen Cichon • 12/19/2017 4:07:26 PM

    The strangest gift I've ever received is a re-gifted rice cooker; re-gifted 3x's as it had remnants of 2 other types of gift wrap in addition to mine. Oh well, I do love rice and I decided to finally give it a home....hee hee. As a huge movie lover, I want to say thank you Tribute for this amazing contest and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and good luck to everyone!

  473. Nancy Montgomery • 12/19/2017 4:07:51 PM

    My husband gave me a jar of horseradish. It was his way of saying I was feeding him too much chicken and fish, and not enough red meat. He certainly got my attention.

  474. Frank Fattore • 12/19/2017 4:09:51 PM

    One Christmas I received an electronic ice scraper and at that time, I didn't have a car. Was a definite regift. Cheers.

  475. Catherine Brown • 12/19/2017 4:10:59 PM

    My husband gave me a CD for a teen once.

  476. Kay Abbott • 12/19/2017 4:16:00 PM

    The weirdest gift I ever received was a salt and pepper shaker from my husband-Not sure what the message he was trying to give me was

  477. Susan Terendy • 12/19/2017 4:18:40 PM

  480. Krista M • 12/19/2017 4:23:24 PM

    In the 90's my parents gave me my own phone line for my room as a gift. Yay! But the phone they gave me.. No! Was their vintage red 70's candlestick rotary phone (where you hold one piece to your ear & hold the stick to talk in the mouthpiece). Well as a teen that was the most awkward thing ever to talk to my friends using that! And embarrassing when friends came over. Not cool, mom & dad!

  481. Pam Humphrey • 12/19/2017 4:25:19 PM

    A leopard skin thong...and I don't wear thongs.

  482. Dan • 12/19/2017 4:27:18 PM

    One time my dad took me out for a ham sandwich. I don't even eat ham!

  483. Rosanne Del Corpo • 12/19/2017 4:27:51 PM

    When I was working at a daycare - we did a gift exchange between the employees - we had a limit of $ 25 back then - I received a box of cookies - the person who had my name put no effort in the gift - just happened to be at the grocery store & picked up a tin of cookies - my boss later gave him hell for it but It didn't bother me - another time my boss at where I presently work gave a joke gift as he always does at Christmas time when we do a gift exchange - well that year I chose the special gift as he called it - well the gift contained mini birthday candles in the shape of a man's body part that I don't want to mention but I'm sure you get the picture - I turned bright red - I was a good sport about it for they warned me not to do it - in the end he gave me a bottle of wine because I was a good sport about it.

  484. Bob Luchene • 12/19/2017 4:29:12 PM

    Strangest gift was one of those singing fish. My father in law would love this phone.

  485. Michael Edwards • 12/19/2017 4:30:12 PM

  486. Kim • 12/19/2017 4:30:53 PM

    Strangest gift was two music CD's together. One Nat King Cole, and the other ZZ Top. Talk about opposites!!

  487. Owen Suppes • 12/19/2017 4:31:28 PM

    The strangest gift I've received so far was back in my early 20's when my gf's mother gave me all of her pennies. Must have been a couple thousand pennies, and rolls, plus a case of coke cola. Maybe it was the aunt and no gf's Mom...hmmm. Gift cards didnt become a big thing till a few years later;)

  488. Ameirah taha • 12/19/2017 4:31:59 PM

    The junkyest hand mixer like from the dollar store. & already had a great one!

    I received wooden blocks that I was supposed to paint myself, since I was not very artsy, I gave them to a kid instead!

  491. Mitul Patel • 12/19/2017 4:42:33 PM

    Once I got a night dress on christmus theme on it of odd size. It is very big than my size I never wore it. That's a big surprise for me the one who gifted me this knows my actual size.

  492. Carole Dube • 12/19/2017 4:45:40 PM

    I got sugar free chocolate! Strange gift, no sugar restriction here.

  493. Georgia Bell • 12/19/2017 4:50:54 PM

    I got a rock in my stocking - but that isn't really too strange as I collect rocks and have had them gifted for birthday presents as well! Thanks for the fabulous giveaway!

I gave it to my Ex, she told me once she went through airport checkpoint, the lipstick vibrator turned on by accident. She was so embarrassed!

  498. Darlene Schuller • 12/19/2017 4:57:02 PM

  510. Jasen H • 12/19/2017 5:21:45 PM

  512. Mary Danieli • 12/19/2017 5:24:59 PM

    The strangest Christmas/Hanukkah gift I ever got was a cheesy sequined ugly Christmas sweater as a gag gift from a gift exchange at work. Needless to say, I was not impressed and vowed never to participate again.

  513. Amie Gaudet • 12/19/2017 5:28:52 PM

    Amie Gaudet The strangest Christmas gift I ever received was a teddy bear with a bag attached to it and inside the bag was a pair of sexy underwear. Why was this so strange? Well, I was only 13 ..... and the gift was from my Grandfather. I was totally creeped out!!!!!!!

  514. Andrew Croswell • 12/19/2017 5:30:51 PM

    I once received a tie for Christmas. It was strange because I received the identical tie the previous year from someone else.

  515. Sam Fenton • 12/19/2017 5:33:29 PM

    An expired gift card, hubby and I went to try and use it and ended up having to pay out of pocket when the gift card was declined because it had expired.

  519. Debra Fisher • 12/19/2017 5:41:48 PM

  524. Marina Bird • 12/19/2017 5:48:34 PM

    A box filled with small bags of potato chips.

  525. Scott Simpson • 12/19/2017 5:50:04 PM

    What an incredible prize, Tribute....thank you so much for another chance! Now, I can't remember if this was for my birthday or Christmas (and sadly, I can't even remember all the details either).....but when I was a kid, my Grandma gave me a shirt and shorts that were an "interesting" ORANGE color.....and not only that, but they were completely covered in a spirraly pattern all over (with all "multi-colors (yeah, seriously). No offence to my Grandma (rest her soul)......but I NEVER wore it (for obvious reasons).....except to show her and the family that same day :)......and I THINK it ended up going to the Salvation Army (those poor people who had to figure out what to do with that ugly set). Oy vey! :) Oh the memories we have, right :) :)

  526. Chris MacDonald • 12/19/2017 5:51:02 PM

  528. Margaretha Saraswati • 12/19/2017 5:51:59 PM

  534. Naomi West • 12/19/2017 6:06:53 PM

    A pack of 2 makeup sponges ...

  540. Jenn Erin • 12/19/2017 6:17:33 PM

    The strangest gift I received was a 5lb 3D body fat model/replica from my secret Santa. I was a pre-med student at that point so I guess it kind of made sense... or where they trying to tell me something? I'd like to think it was the latter.

  541. Mark Given • 12/19/2017 6:20:27 PM

    An empty gift card

  542. Taylor Smith • 12/19/2017 6:23:00 PM

    I think I got a roach clip in a fairly big box as a present from friends one Christmas, and was told that they had actually got me to wrap it.

  545. Marie Young (Betty) • 12/19/2017 6:29:45 PM

    Sorry, I don't remember receiving any weird/strange gifts for anything(Christmas, birthday) or maybe I have blocked the memory. Regardless, that phone would be a WONDERFUL win for me. Although I do have a cell, it is not a smart one. I refer to it as an "elder" phone, just like me "elder" and this would bring me into the 21st century!

  546. JUDY KIM • 12/19/2017 6:31:47 PM

    Chocolate brussels sprouts

  547. Toni Bajer • 12/19/2017 6:35:30 PM

    I'm not sure whether it was the underwear that was 3 sizes too big or the pickled herring (like my maternal grandfather, I don't like the taste of seafood)!?!

  548. Aileen Mowat • 12/19/2017 6:43:20 PM

    Strange gift!! A mitten with an ice scrapper attached to it!!!

  549. Mark Lund • 12/19/2017 6:45:53 PM

    Christmas 1994 I received a Flattop action figure from the Dick Tracy movie. This was like 4 1/2 years after the movie had come out and I had never brought it up in any conversations or even seen it pop up on any of the 3 channels we had. I am left to believe Grandma wasn't trying that hard that year and scooped it from a clearance bin from who knows where.

  550. Heather Swanson • 12/19/2017 6:46:57 PM

    an eagle decanter rolling around in a ski doo boot box

  551. Tanya Neilson • 12/19/2017 6:47:11 PM

    Shoes two sizes too small

  556. Jennifer Parsons • 12/19/2017 7:00:39 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was my name spelled out in pinecones. It was the year our family decided we had to make a gift for the person whose name we drew. My dad drew my name and for my gift he went out into the yard and collected pinecones, made the letters of my name, shellacked them, and then glued them to a piece of wood from the garage. Just what everyone wants, a sign with their name in pinecones!! ;-)

  557. Brandon Forsyth • 12/19/2017 7:03:03 PM

    Lol I got an action figure of mini me from Austin Powers that makes the eeee noise he makes in the movies for my secret Santa a few years ago

  558. sandra sgambelluri • 12/19/2017 7:07:35 PM

    An agenda dated a year prior then the one we were in!😀 I guess the person did not know the year we were in. Hopefully, that person's memory has improved to the present date!

  559. mary ann • 12/19/2017 7:12:18 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was for my wedding shower in August. It was a basket filled with teas, mugs etc which was wrapped in Christmas cellophane wrap and on the bottom was a card saying Merry Christmas )to the person that had given me the gift).

I think it was meant to go to someone else or to a dog!! but was in a group of gifts wrapped for me for a house warming party!! lol. No name tag as to who or where it came from... weird.

  566. Jessica Chan • 12/19/2017 7:18:48 PM

  570. Dave Wasylyshyn • 12/19/2017 7:29:38 PM

  574. Chandra O’Connor • 12/19/2017 7:35:24 PM

    I never really had a strange Christmas or any other holiday. My life isn’t that exciting for things like that to happen.

  575. Gloria Dekker • 12/19/2017 7:36:16 PM

    A shoe polish kit.....what can I say.......thats a Grandma for you, when wanted me to make a good impression, I guess. I love her dearly though and did take pride in my shoes.

  576. Susanne C • 12/19/2017 7:36:51 PM

    Strangest was a pair of boys' pyjamas when I was a little girl. The aunt who sent the gift mixed them up.

  577. JULIA GRANT • 12/19/2017 7:39:59 PM

    Season 5 of The OC. Hadn’t seen any of the previous seasons.....guess it’s the thought that counts...

  590. Katharina Riedyk • 12/19/2017 7:54:46 PM

    A big can of 48 fluid ounces of fruit cocktail. Two things wrong with that, first of all I don’t like the stuff and second what the heck is a single person going to do with that.

  591. Amber Lindley • 12/19/2017 7:55:27 PM

    Aren’t the strange gifts the fun ones?, lol. Too many to mention 😫

  593. Dan Scott • 12/19/2017 7:58:25 PM

    When I celebrated Christmas at my girlfriend's home in Scotland it was a weird experience. There I found that their Christmas carols had different words, different music. They even had a weird name for New Years's eve "Hogmanay". Got engaged on Christmas eve and the weirdness never stopped. The now inlaws got all silent and cried. Their baby girl was moving to Canada. I was happy when next year we celebrated Christmas and New Years in Canada. (PS-My favourite scottish saying was at new years when my wife asked everyone to grab a hooter and bring in the new year. Hooter is a scottish term for the horn you blow air through that makes a tooting noise.)

  594. Gloria Williams • 12/19/2017 7:58:50 PM

  673. Kevin W • 12/19/2017 10:15:34 PM

  683. Cathy Oppedisano • 12/19/2017 10:43:59 PM

    I can't think of a strange gift but I can think of a gift that made me think the person who gave it is strange because she's supposed to be a close person in my life but she just gave me a card once that she printed from her computer onto a regular piece of paper with nothing inside and no gift attached to the card either.

  684. Susan Peterson • 12/19/2017 10:52:18 PM

    A large jar of Olives because I loved olives. It was in 1974 and they didn't have Costco then and I had never seen such a big jar of olives. LOL!

  685. donna makayak • 12/19/2017 10:53:39 PM

    I got a pair of what looked like used socks....ewww!

  702. Dianne Gardner • 12/19/2017 11:29:20 PM

    When I was in grade 2 we did a gift exchange and picked numbers. I watched as girls got Barbie Dolls, Skipping Ropes, Books of Candy and so much more and then it was my turn. It was a tiny flat gift wrapped up in newspaper comics. I opened it and it was some used hair ribbons that were scorched from an iron. At the time I was sad but pretended to like it because that is what I had been taught. Now that I am an adult I think the girl that gave it probably could not afford to buy a gift so she washed and ironed the nicest thing she had.

  703. Sandra Jones • 12/19/2017 11:29:33 PM

    I remember it well .... about 15 years ago, my lovely hubbie decided to surprise me with a very unusual Christmas gift. The wrapped gift box was huge so my I was very excited to see what he had given me. To my surprise, it was a Webster’s tabletop dictionary that measured about 14” X 20”. The question “Why?” sprang to mind. What had I said that could have led him to think a dictionary was on my list of desired Christmas gifts?? But then I thought, “Who wouldn’t want a tabletop dictionary lovingly given instead of a pair of sparkly diamond earrings?” And so, it became one of my more legendary Christmas gifts.

  704. anna donato • 12/19/2017 11:32:18 PM

    a very ugly straw rooster with sewing notions

  711. Tanya Rose • 12/19/2017 11:40:40 PM

    I got a Beer branded sweatshirt in a mens size from my Beer loving Grandfather one Christmas. I was only 6 years old at the time, it was very upsetting he couldn't even be bothered buying me a gift and he just wrapped up a free sweatshirt he got in a box of beer he had.

  712. BARBARA FORD • 12/19/2017 11:42:00 PM

  717. B Chan • 12/19/2017 11:48:32 PM

    Somebody gave me a box of cereal once. Off-brand too.

    Strangest gift was a set of jumper cables for the car.

  727. Linda G • 12/20/2017 12:01:55 AM

    A card with lottery tickets...all losers, the draw dates were in November several weeks before Christmas!!!

  728. Mark W • 12/20/2017 12:05:14 AM

    The weirdest gift that I received was a toilet plunger. Apparently they felt it was a must have for moving out on my own.

  729. Ali Duncan • 12/20/2017 12:12:26 AM

    Shoe laces wrapped in a napkin from my mother as I left home on the East Coast to start my life on the West Coast. Guess she assumed we were all living off the goods in the forest and I would never find shoelaces out here in the boonies.

  730. RYAN G • 12/20/2017 12:13:07 AM

    Nothing stands out as odd, other than I did get a lot of presents as a kid.

  731. Mais Bailey • 12/20/2017 12:14:09 AM

  734. Barbara Behan • 12/20/2017 12:26:15 AM

    I haven't really received any strange gifts, except sometimes in Christmas exchanges you get something that you don't know what it is.

  735. Sidney Yuen • 12/20/2017 12:28:47 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a souvenir Montreal Canadiens Keychain and Puck in an Official Habs shopping bag from a coworker who watched a game at the Montreal Bell Centre--strange because I despise the Habs and am All True All Blue Loyal Toronto Maple Leafs Fan!! Needless to say, I happily gave this gift to my uncle since he is a Habs Fan!!lol Happy Holidays and Have an Amazing and Safe Christmas!!

  736. Heidi c. • 12/20/2017 12:30:11 AM

    Probably the strangest gift that i ever received was an empty bird cage-like decorative piece from my mother-in-law (she won't see this, thank Goodness). She said that it spoke of me when she saw it and, since I love birds (not really but ok), she was sure I would love it. She meant well, I guess but it ended up lost in a move (aka recycling bin).

  737. Belinda shauer • 12/20/2017 12:32:44 AM

    My weirdest present was a home made very large rough cut mail box. Hindsite it was a awesome great present but at the time. I just did not get that this simple present was homemade and came with love.

  738. Amber • 12/20/2017 12:33:22 AM

    I short spiked hair and was given a head wrap to dry my hair plus I hurt my knee and from the same person bubble bath. I used that for my fur babies. Would love this phone.

  739. nancy stokell • 12/20/2017 12:34:13 AM

    a used vertical steak cooker that didn't work

  745. Mabel Mak • 12/20/2017 12:50:30 AM

    Well, the strangest Christmas gift I ever seen is the smoke detector. Nobody wanted to pick that one from the draw. Luckily at the end, a friend who is a realtor picked it up and gifted it to the new house buyer.

  746. Jennifer Lo • 12/20/2017 1:00:56 AM

  752. Ginny Leung • 12/20/2017 1:39:19 AM

    ostrich pillow...and it's amazingly comfortable although it looks really weird in public

  753. Edmund Leung • 12/20/2017 2:21:55 AM

    head scratcher...it looks like an open egg beater

  754. Miguel Serrano • 12/20/2017 2:22:23 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I’ve ever received were gifts from my kids and when I opened them they took them right back and said Merry Christmas. Gotta love your kids, I guess it is the though that counts. :)

  755. Elinor Schwob • 12/20/2017 2:28:09 AM

    A fruit cake. Yes as a gift. Wrapped and everything.

  756. Angela B. • 12/20/2017 2:38:05 AM

  758. Will McKinkey • 12/20/2017 2:50:07 AM

  759. Christine Nunes • 12/20/2017 2:57:00 AM

    The weirdest gift I ever got was a bottle of fart spray it was a joke but it was disgusting worst smell ever

  760. Adina Helmer • 12/20/2017 2:58:20 AM

    I once received a ziploc sandwich bag full of coffee. A little strange in itself, but particularly because I hate coffee. The gift was from a young cousin, though, and I appreciated the sentiment.

  761. Theresa Horne • 12/20/2017 3:00:49 AM

    My oddest gift was probably broken (or buggy) electronics. I love to take things apart and fix them, or turn them into something else.

  762. Trudy Griffin • 12/20/2017 3:10:53 AM

    My youngest kid loved to Christmas shop for her family , in their own bedroom. I got the same gift three years in a row, I mean , literally, the same gift.

  763. Koichiro Yagi • 12/20/2017 3:20:42 AM

  767. Ritchie Annand • 12/20/2017 4:06:46 AM

    My wife got a sparkly rhinestone keychain with her initial on it. That beats out anything weird I got - though I guess a set of the exact same plaid shirts my dad wore could be considered a bit weird :)

  768. Harriet Huestis • 12/20/2017 4:16:03 AM

    Nothing too strange but some food baskets have the worst tasting food.

  769. Kelly Baker • 12/20/2017 4:58:54 AM

    Lingerie! lol

  770. Jenny fraser • 12/20/2017 5:19:24 AM

    I gave my mother in law earrings one year, she regifted them back to me along with used tools for my husband 😲

  771. Joy • 12/20/2017 5:27:12 AM

    A hammer

  772. Lincoln McLeod • 12/20/2017 5:42:38 AM

    I once got an alarm clock. I have no idea why.

  773. Lori Olson • 12/20/2017 6:11:25 AM

    Its weird but more funny..lol. My sis came to town the week of Christmas 2007, and she had found a funny "You know you are a Redneck" stacking calendar (desk-top calendar.. you can pull off each date. The funny/weird thing is - the calendar was for 7007..lol.. I didn't get it until there were only 10 days left of 2007..lol. Nice thing is, I post a bunch of them on a game I play and we continue to enjoy that old calendar..lol.. :D

  774. Linda K • 12/20/2017 6:17:55 AM

    The strangest gift that I've received was a bag of socks.

  775. Kirby • 12/20/2017 6:21:27 AM

    Nuts and bolts , literally!!! But, my brother usually adds in a good gift here and there.

  776. Carol • 12/20/2017 6:21:27 AM

    set of ugly pots pans

  777. Vicky D • 12/20/2017 6:23:16 AM

    guys underwear....my name got put on the wrong gift! lol

  778. Cynthia Kennedy • 12/20/2017 6:28:04 AM

    My brother has a knack for finding the weirdest, oddest gifts for me, but the absolute strangest was a wine bottle holder - it was a Viking bust (waist up) with it's hand to its mouth - the bottle would go in the wine holder upside down so that it looked as if the Viking was guzzling the wine. UGH, I had to pretend it was the most unique, neatest gift ever - then I hid it away in my daughter's closet. One night I had been digging a blanket out of her closet (she was about 4 years old) and I didn't realize that the Viking had tipped out the door a little bit and I had left the door ajar - all of a sudden we heard screaming from her room - a hand was reaching out her door trying to get her!!! She still remembers this vividly 11 years later! Needless to say the Viking has left the building!! Merry Christmas everyone, thanks for the chance Tribute!!!

  779. Irene • 12/20/2017 6:28:58 AM

    a car part...really?

  780. Michael Montague • 12/20/2017 6:32:43 AM

    The strangest Christmas I have ever experienced was when we did not have any snow at all. It just wasn't Christmas!

  781. Kung Cheung • 12/20/2017 6:50:33 AM

    The oddest gift that was given was a ugly Christmas sweater.

  782. ERIC TAN • 12/20/2017 7:08:09 AM

    Strangest Christmas gift I received is a gift certificate for Victoria's Secret from my ex...kind of funny...ended up using it really for her...lol

  783. kimberly toomey • 12/20/2017 7:12:44 AM

    As much as I want to comment on this I sit here thinking about what strange gift I received but nothing comes to mind but I do remember giving my mom a laundry basket one year

  784. willard paddock • 12/20/2017 7:26:30 AM

    I cannot remember any strange gifts that I might have received over the years, but I do remember around the 1st Christmas that my girlfriend ( now wife ) celebrated together. I gave her a mop and bucket as a Christmas gift, boy she held it in... but the next day she asked me why in the "bleep" did I give her that as a gift.... I realized my mistake, but I did say... you have been talking about getting a new mop and bucket, so I thought that you might be happy.... wrong. All was forgiven, and we have been married going on 8 years.

  785. Pam • 12/20/2017 7:30:26 AM

    One Christmas I received a set of children's cookware from a co-worker. I didn't know who the person was either. I thought it must have been a mistake. I then found out that since everyone knew I didn't really enjoy cooking, it was given to me as a starter kit. It was really quite funny. I think the people watching the look on my face when I opened it got a bit of enjoyment out of it as well.

  786. Pam noakes • 12/20/2017 7:31:14 AM

    My boyfriends nana at the time gave me a used candle . They were all exchanging gifts and I was an afterthought. She grabbed it off the mantle and stuck it in a Christmas bag . I assume she didn’t know it had been used lol

  787. Iuliia Golubchyk • 12/20/2017 7:49:18 AM

    An ugly sweater two sizes bigger than mine

  788. tracey reynolds • 12/20/2017 8:01:09 AM

    Strangest gift ever received was a bag of rice.

  789. Eugene • 12/20/2017 8:04:32 AM

    Believe it or not, i received a property deed for Christmas. For what? I'm glad you asked. Well,it was for ownership of an area on the moon! No joke! According to the information included in the gift, no country is allowed to claim property rights on the moon. If that's true, then by logic, i own a piece of Little India. From the same person the next year he outdid himself with an M @ M character shower radio! A one-two punch of great gifts. Thanks for reading.

  790. Sara Glaab • 12/20/2017 8:13:18 AM

    expired hand sanitizer

  791. Laurent Latulippe • 12/20/2017 8:36:03 AM

    The strangest gift I've ever received was a hamster cage and supplies. I don't own or like hamsters.

  792. Mary Ann Daigle • 12/20/2017 8:37:24 AM

    A roll of toilet paper!!!!! A crazy aunt who frightened us as children, gave us kids each a roll of toilet paper and we were frozen in our tracks and smiled and said thanks. She was rolling on the floor consumed in her creepy laugh. Turns out she hid a watch in the centre on the tube.

  793. Garnet Leib • 12/20/2017 8:49:19 AM

    A pair of Skates that were 3 sizes to big

  794. toni v • 12/20/2017 8:51:48 AM

    a survival guide for single women..... strange and insulting. some frenemy was projecting her insecurities onto others and thought that was an ideal book for me. nope and bye!

  795. Julie F • 12/20/2017 8:56:17 AM

    I received a cross body bag that was for a kid, I couldnt even get it over my head!

  796. Sandra Cairns • 12/20/2017 9:03:41 AM

    An ugly (in my opinion) sweater that was thankfully 2 sizes to small.

  797. Lillian • 12/20/2017 9:06:26 AM

    What a wonderful prize, would love it because I don’t have a cell phone!! Lillian Young

  798. Tenisha B. • 12/20/2017 9:24:30 AM

    Strangest gift I received - expired passes to a summer theme park

  799. James Leung • 12/20/2017 9:29:19 AM

    The strangest Christmas gift I’ve ever received was home-made jar of pickles - I still have eaten them yet.

  800. Lisa Mihalovics • 12/20/2017 9:30:09 AM

    A puppet

  801. Mike Lachapelle • 12/20/2017 9:40:06 AM

    My strangest gift I ever received was a hideous corduroy brown dress shirt from my in-laws. I never wore it and i even felt bad donating. I think they got the hint, because now it is always gift cards :)

  802. vash • 12/20/2017 9:41:36 AM

    It has to be cherry wine

  803. teena • 12/20/2017 9:44:57 AM

    Christina cichon - strangest gift was a maroon velvet warm up suit.

  804. Leah Babins • 12/20/2017 9:51:20 AM

    Besides for the awful birthday/holiday present in one (the worst!), the strangest gift would have to be slippers meant for a child when I was clearly an adult.

  805. Anne A • 12/20/2017 9:53:20 AM

    Well when I was a kid I truly believed in Santa my sibling brother filled my Santa stocking with forks, as a prank.

  806. Elizabeth Matthiesen • 12/20/2017 9:57:07 AM

    I'm glad to say that I've never received a weird gift. That is unless you count the new toothbrush we got every single Christmas as kids, the funniest thing was that one year we didn't get one. Mum had hidden them so well she couldn't find them - turned out they were hidden in the crackers, lol.

  807. Debbie Fedorak • 12/20/2017 10:05:07 AM

    I can't recall a weird gift. I have been very fortunate and have enjoyed all my gifts. Obviously, my family knows me well.

  808. LILLIAN BROWN • 12/20/2017 10:06:46 AM

    I once received a set of snow tires, do not drive in the winter

  809. Linda Panchuk • 12/20/2017 10:06:47 AM

    A box of dog shampoo from my five year old. It was in a pretty box with pictures of puppies that she thought made it really special for mom. I thanked her profusely but laughed about it for years afterwards.

  810. David Sorensen • 12/20/2017 10:08:59 AM

    The "ugly" sweater from the grandparents that you had to wear to show you liked it.

  811. Debbie Klimosko • 12/20/2017 10:13:41 AM

    A chia pet

  812. Don Lew • 12/20/2017 10:26:23 AM

    An extension cord from my dad so that i could use his electric lawnmower to cut his grass. Or the wallet with $2.31 Canadian tire money in it. Again from my dad.

  813. Jennifer hanley • 12/20/2017 10:31:51 AM

    a piece of coal!!

  814. Al • 12/20/2017 10:32:28 AM

    The Family limit on Christmas gifts was to be under $150 cdn. I really wanted a new table saw and asked for a ryobi table saw which was within the Budget including taxes. Christmas Day , in front of the whole family my "Secret Santa", gave me a Christmas card with nothing in it! All these years later I will never forget how this made me feel and if it were me and I couldn't afford the limit I would not exclude anyone from getting a Christmas present.

  815. DebbDebb • 12/20/2017 10:51:50 AM

    One of our Christmas traditions is to guess the present under the tree. When I was in elementary school, my Dad crafted empty wrapping paper rolls into a T-shape, stuffed underwear in each tube and then included some nuts in each end, then wrapped it all up. It was the strangest gift wrapping and I had no clue what it could be!

  816. Mine • 12/20/2017 11:02:17 AM

    A nice orange

  817. I. Leong • 12/20/2017 11:04:45 AM

    The strangest gift I received: Walk the Line soundtrack CD from someone who had given me that CD the year prior. (So, I have 2 copies of that soundtrack.)

  818. verica rosic • 12/20/2017 11:04:58 AM

    Once i received men's toiletry bag

  819. Adam Kohn • 12/20/2017 11:15:35 AM

    Fruit cake, does anybody actually like those things?

  820. Catherine Kelly-Brown @CathyInCanada • 12/20/2017 11:17:07 AM

    It was during a tacky gift exchange at work but still the worst gift ever.... a plastic, gold, glittery placemat set with matching napkins and napkin rings.

  821. Louise Flood • 12/20/2017 11:17:53 AM

    My mother gave us a contribution towards funeral plots beside her's at the cemetery. We could not afford to purchase the plots as we were having a little financial struggle; so in fact we got nothing. No plot no money. Merry Christmas to all!

  822. Roxanne Brown • 12/20/2017 11:23:06 AM

    I can't seem to remember any gifts that were strange or out of the norm.I'm sure there were a few over the years but nothing stands out in my mind.

  823. Dauminique Napier • 12/20/2017 11:24:47 AM

    My mother-in-law dabbles in jewellery-making and for the past two years, the Christmas elf leaves one of her ‘creations’ for me under the tree.

  824. Chris • 12/20/2017 11:29:38 AM

    Over the years I have received quite a few gifts that I would ask myself "Really?". Not that I was upset about any of them since it's the thought that really counts anyways. I remember as a kid waking up for christmas morning late, teenager at that point, lol, and there was a cream filled donut under the tree for me. Clearly someone went to Timmy's and had bought it for me that morning! Could have used a phone with a nice camera then because with my brothers around me, needless to say, more of the donut ended up on my face then actually being consumed so it would have made for some nice social media shots, hehe.

  825. joanne Lowery • 12/20/2017 11:42:47 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a kitchen garbage can. I have no thoughts, reasoning or other comments on this gift. I graciously accepted.

  826. NJAlt • 12/20/2017 11:43:56 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was at a office Christmas Party from a Secret Santa..they were a pair of torn nylons, that I think someone re gifted to me after using them.

  827. TAlt • 12/20/2017 11:46:45 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a bag of Oatmeal from a coworker. I think they thought I really liked Oatmeal. I thanked the gift giver politely and never spoke of the incident to anyone.

  828. Alysha K • 12/20/2017 11:48:28 AM

    When I was a kid my dad sent me a bag of dollar store pencil sharpeners and erasers for my christmas gift...but no pencils. Haha

  829. Heather Rosen • 12/20/2017 11:48:39 AM

    A pair of socks from my stepmother. They were black socks with garish gold thread running through them, and she was so excited to have given me what she called "Michael Jackson socks" back in the day when he was popular. They weren't branded as Michael Jackson socks. I guess she was trying to rationalize to herself -- not to me -- what a great gift that was. I was speechless. I wish I could forget this. It was the only holiday gift she ever gave me. NOT a success, Diane! #idiot

  830. Jeanne Robitaille • 12/20/2017 12:03:41 PM

    The strangest Christmas (or other holiday, if you don’t celebrate Christmas) gift you’ve ever received was a second hand back massager... !? LOL

  831. Teresa Krawchuk • 12/20/2017 12:08:38 PM

    A few years ago my daughters boyfriend bought me a giant sized lighter that took a whole can of lighter fluid as a novelty gift

  832. Diane McKellar • 12/20/2017 12:09:44 PM

    I do not own a phone so this would be a lovely prize to win thanks

  833. Jordan Hildebrand • 12/20/2017 12:11:11 PM

    Paper clips. While helpful in a pinch, strange as a gift.

  834. Jean • 12/20/2017 12:35:22 PM

    fruitcake was the worst gift that I received

  835. Quan • 12/20/2017 12:38:19 PM

    a pair of oversize sneakers

  836. Laurie Yagelnesky • 12/20/2017 12:46:13 PM

    A fruitcake that was expired from the store

  837. Marcia Yagelnesky • 12/20/2017 12:47:21 PM

    A doll with one eye missing.

  838. Arlene Laughren • 12/20/2017 1:28:00 PM

    My Mother-in-law once gave me a lava lamp? I did not use it at all because they got very hot and dangerous around the young children. Now that she has passed on and our family are grown I love to put it on at Christmas as a reminder of her. It is red so very appropriate for Christmas time.

  839. Debra Pringle • 12/20/2017 1:35:43 PM

    I received an egg timer that didn't work.

  840. Bonnie mccleery • 12/20/2017 1:50:04 PM

    An ugly Christmas sweater which I promptly register!

  841. Terri C • 12/20/2017 2:13:02 PM

    Pajama jeans. Hubby thought they would be a good idea but they weren't.

  842. Debbie Sutton • 12/20/2017 2:44:34 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a milking stool (to be used for milking cows) 🐄.

  843. Kathy Saunders • 12/20/2017 2:46:50 PM

    When I was 35 years old my father found my old red sleigh in the rafters of the garage. He stripped it down and refinished the sleigh, painted it the steel parts and replaced the old rope. I received my old friend at Christmas. My Red Rocket sleigh is still my favourite Christmas gift of all time and receiving it the second time was just as exciting as receiving it the first time as a very small child. Thanks dad, you rock!

  844. Linda Canning • 12/20/2017 2:50:37 PM

    One year I recieved a frog purse from brazil yes it was a gutted frog with eyeballs and everything from a friend I must say I did use it for a bit it was quite a conversation starter lol !

  845. Nancy Wong • 12/20/2017 3:04:33 PM

    My mother in law gave me a belt that is clearly for a kid. Re-gifting?

  846. Mandy Rushton • 12/20/2017 3:12:09 PM

    I'd have to say that in this day and age of smartphones, synching calendars/devices and such the fact that I still to this day get a big bulky "Day Planner" for Christmas from my mother after years of mentioning I no longer use them is simply beyond me! :P A grand new smartphone would be divine to help me on track for the new year. :D

  847. dianne • 12/20/2017 4:02:28 PM

    This would an awesome Xmas gift. Fingers crossed.

  848. Robin Tan • 12/20/2017 4:03:28 PM

    4 years ago, I was shopping around for a smartphone, but everything was too expensive for me, so on christmas, I opened my gift from my parents and wow, it was a new phone or what looked like a new phone, it was so light when I picked it up, I opened the box and there was note that said "I can't get you a phone, but here's a phone box!"

  849. Annette Chai • 12/20/2017 4:05:04 PM

    An expired calendar.

  850. Cherish C • 12/20/2017 4:08:10 PM

    It's winter time in Williams Lake, BC & we are visiting family, but I got a bright yellow spring jacket. Guess there was a sale at baby phat for their spring stuff, maybe the trip had cost money to travel from Vancouver to Williams Lake. I'm not really sure what my mom was thinking. Really it's like -15 and what's wrong with winter mitts, boots, toque, socks, gloves etc.? Lol this funny now that I think back 14 years ago.

  851. Amber Young • 12/20/2017 4:50:49 PM

    I received a lamp in the shape of a human heart once. It make pulsating sound effects too. So creepy!!

  852. Dave • 12/20/2017 5:03:58 PM

  854. Megan Loong • 12/20/2017 5:25:24 PM

    The strangest gift I have received was a tribal ornament with a weird design.

  855. Farin Teague • 12/20/2017 5:27:53 PM

    When I was 6 my uncle gave me a little figurine house (it had a lid at the top) with booze inside. My parents immediately took it away.

  856. mary sawickis • 12/20/2017 6:41:37 PM

    an old friend gave me an old bonnet style hairdryer that nearly caught fire when i first plugged it in!

  858. bailey vine • 12/20/2017 7:39:39 PM

    My ex bfs mother gave me anti dandruff and dry scalp shampoo (no condition) along with a night gown that had a naked woman with saggy breasts on the front...it was in front of 20 of his family members and when i opened it she yelled out that my hair could really use it and the night gown made her think of me. So kind.

  859. Jean • 12/20/2017 7:42:38 PM

    Car perfume when I don't own a car. lol

    I haven't received anything strange....YET

  861. Amy Stackhouse • 12/20/2017 8:35:23 PM

    I once got a pickle Christmas ornament before my children were born. The legend of the pickle ornament is that it is hidden on Christmas morning and the first person to find it gets to open the first gift (or an extra gift from Santa.) It doesn't work so well when there are only two adult people ;)

  862. Angelica Ng • 12/20/2017 8:41:20 PM

    A belt buckle. Just a single belt buckle.

    The strange gift I once received from a friend for Xmas was a sweater d'Arkansas blue but the sleeves were too short and looked weird. I will gladly appreciate to win thaïs beautiful iPhone as I don't have one. Thanks and Merry Christmas to you all.

  866. Ashley Chow • 12/20/2017 10:49:12 PM

    The strangest Christmas gift I’ve ever received was a bathroom scale from my employer. I wonder if someone in the office trying to send me a message?

  867. Shirley OFlynn • 12/20/2017 10:57:09 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a bottle of Jam that had already been opened and had dried jam on the outside of the bottle.

    I was bitten by a crazy cat on the eve of christmas and had to go the E.R. to have anti-rabbies injection. The nurse who attended to my medical needs sold me a raffle ticket to be drawn the next day. Guess who won the raffle. Me and the prize was an old car. Best cat bite ever.

  882. Kan Juan • 12/21/2017 6:38:49 AM

    Strangest gift that I've received was a pair of shoes in the wrong size (and not my style)!

  883. Bonnie Humphrey • 12/21/2017 7:38:16 AM

    A gift is a gift..you were thought of

  884. Dawn Lawry • 12/21/2017 8:01:26 AM

    Never received a strange gift in fact I have never received any Christmas gifts from my family as I have broken all ties to my family because of abuse. Would love to win a new phone Thanks

  885. Carol Oddy • 12/21/2017 8:05:33 AM

    The strangest gift I ever received a huge ring that I could never wear.

  886. Nicole Bremner • 12/21/2017 8:18:28 AM

    I received a Very. Large. Framed. Picture. Of. Myself. I won't say who it was from, but it was an immediate family member. I was mortified. Hard to keep a look of horror off my face.

  887. Garnet Leib • 12/21/2017 8:26:52 AM

    One of my own trucks from Santa at my Grade 3 Christmas Concert. I guess my Parents weren't having a great Year financially???

  888. Mary Laplante • 12/21/2017 8:31:22 AM

    My ex bought me a pair of fancy scissors. Have no idea why!

  889. Anne • 12/21/2017 8:41:04 AM

    My husband gave me a PRESSURE WASHER! Something he had been wanting to buy for quite some time, but I kept telling him that he would never use it! So he figured by giving it to me I would use it?? Not! So the pressure washer is sitting in out garage for the past 15 Years. Only been used twice and I can not bring myself to throw it out! Love my oddball husband!

  890. Tara Carver • 12/21/2017 8:47:08 AM

  891. Leeanne crisante • 12/21/2017 10:00:28 AM

    The strangest gift i received was from one of my friends she thought i needed condoms over the holidays. Very odd gift but kinda had laughter behind it.

  892. Jade Roy • 12/21/2017 10:17:46 AM

    A few years ago, I was regifted DVD's that were tooken from my shelf I already owned as a joke!

  895. Calvin Yury • 12/21/2017 10:42:12 AM

    The strangest gift I ever was a shake weight. I always made jokes about this item. And Karma paid me back because I got my very own. Lol

  896. Lynne Kjeldsen-Trotter • 12/21/2017 10:48:23 AM

    I think it was a calendar that was expiring in 6 days! Thanks for this great contest tribute.ca🎄

  897. Barry Auger • 12/21/2017 12:33:19 PM

    My wife was in a last minute rush to wrap presents. Christmas Day I opened the present to find and empty box,....she had forgotten to put the shirt in it.

  898. Simon Carter • 12/21/2017 12:38:27 PM

    When I was a kid I got a Michael Jackson type of jacket with tones of zippers

  899. Bruce • 12/21/2017 12:41:53 PM

    I received a jerrycan for gas as a Christmas gift. It was an odd gift, and 3 or 4 months latter it turned out to be very useful.

  900. Kim Hubert • 12/21/2017 12:56:55 PM

    I received a really ugly sweater.

  901. Leanne Lange • 12/21/2017 1:00:27 PM

    The strangest gift I have ever received was a staple remover from my one grandmother.

  902. Gloria • 12/21/2017 1:44:45 PM

    For one christmas my boss gave me expired can food. 2 years expired to be exact. :(

  903. Joan Junkie • 12/21/2017 1:53:15 PM

    The strangest christmas present I ever got was a re-gift of a gift that I had given that same person years before.

  904. cindy • 12/21/2017 2:31:46 PM

    my amazing cat left me a real mouse inside my winter boot when i was a kid. there were more than a dozen boots and shoes. she was that smart and loved me that much. best and worst gift ever. i really hope it was already dead before I put on the boot.

  905. Robert Guillemette • 12/21/2017 3:40:14 PM

    I once entered a gift exchange with a group of friends and while every one else received a quality gift, I got a stuffed Hulk doll from the dollar store that was hideous.

  906. christina • 12/21/2017 3:42:53 PM

    i once got a toilet paper cover, that i had seen the night before in a relatives house on the back of their toilet.

  907. Sharon Salsberg • 12/21/2017 4:06:57 PM

    An automatic soap dispenser. No soap. No batteries. And when I supplied that myself: it didn't work!

  908. Gloria Yaworski • 12/21/2017 5:52:17 PM

    I received a roll of toilet paper. Which I thought was very strange. But when I unrolled it there was $50.00 dollar bills laid out one after the other.

  909. Ronald • 12/21/2017 6:19:53 PM

    I once received an ugly shirt with a big snake on the back and a cat on the front. On top of that it was too large for the 17 year-old boy I was. It was a gift from a friend I barely knew.

  910. Rose Murphy • 12/21/2017 6:29:05 PM

    This is not the strangest gift, but my husband's birthday is Christmas Day- DECEMBER 25th, This year he will be 80. His birthday being on Christmas is not the best day, everyone overlooks his birthday. It would be nice this year to receive a special gift.

  911. Alyson Coughlan • 12/21/2017 7:02:06 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a few years ago. It was from a friend and I didn't know what it was when I opened it.I asked everyone that came to visit over the Holidays and nobody knew. Well when my friend came to visit she asked me how I liked my gift. Well I know my fave must have turned beet red, I didn't know what to say except the truth. What is it? I asked. She said it was to set hot pots on when taken out of the oven or off the stove. Well we both busted out with laughter, at least I know now what it was....lol.

  912. Veronica Kueng • 12/21/2017 7:51:00 PM

    I once received men's underwear that were meant for my brother and funny thing is he got women's underwear!

  913. Sydney moses • 12/21/2017 8:20:15 PM

    Wallet made of fake leather, it was strange color too

  914. Mona Kaulback • 12/21/2017 8:48:59 PM

    My step son when he was very little gave me a wrapped bag of popping corn. By the way he really loved pop corn. Cute and very sweet Thanks Mona Kaulback

  915. Charmaine M. Anderson • 12/21/2017 9:08:51 PM

    My once mother-in-law gave me this weird hair accessory. It was like a great big barrette that had all these wiry things coming out of it with little multi-coloured wooden balls on the ends of them, so that when you moved, they would bobble around. It looked like something one would wear as part of a clown costume or something. I also had short hair at the time. Why would I even need such an item? We never did like each other, lol.

  916. Stephane B • 12/21/2017 9:52:38 PM

    a calendar

  917. Marc-Andre Taillefer • 12/21/2017 11:09:50 PM

    a calendar

  918. Mila Carvo • 12/21/2017 11:28:00 PM

    The weirdest present I have ever gotten for Christmas is from my bestfriend Evan. He went on a holiday cruise and bought me a Christmas gift. You'd think it would be a nice souvenir or a shirt or something tropical. Nope. It was a tiny bottle of colour changing nail polish. I have never used nail polish. LOL. I still have it but I never use it.

  919. Shamarra Gray • 12/21/2017 11:41:43 PM

    A big furry, multicoloured scarf...which I never wore.

  920. Virginia Kuz • 12/22/2017 12:47:42 AM

    An awful dollar store calculator

  921. ESTHER ALLARD • 12/22/2017 3:01:21 AM

    A pack of Life Saver!

  922. Carol • 12/22/2017 3:40:42 AM

    A children's book!

  926. Joshua Elliott • 12/22/2017 9:38:39 AM

    The strangest gift I got for Christmas once was a talking teddy bear, you press a button and it records what it hear.

  927. Eleanor Andersom • 12/22/2017 10:48:33 AM

    The strangest gift I got was an ugly pair of knitted slipper socks that weren’t even my size. I still have them. They are not even re-gift worthy.

  928. Dale Joss • 12/22/2017 12:17:50 PM

    The strangest Christmas present I've ever received was from an aunt of mine. One year she game me a BBQ cover. I didn't even have a BBQ and the apartment I was in did not allow BBQs. It was kind of a tease for me. :(

  929. Darlene Joss • 12/22/2017 12:41:43 PM

    I remember getting a very unusually shaped gift for Christmas. When I unwrapped it, I was surprised to find a goldfish, in a tied plastic bag filled with water. We placed it in the fishbowl that was wrapped separately. It went on our coffee table. Our cat was unusually happy the next morning. When we looked at the fishbowl, we knew why.

  930. Roger Simmons • 12/22/2017 3:34:41 PM

    Ive never recieved any strange gifts. Ive found gifts wrapped in strange boxes which i probably wanted the item that was previously in the box.

  931. JANET ZASIEDKO • 12/22/2017 5:13:16 PM

    got a paper cutter from not soon enough ex-husband!!

  932. TAlt • 12/23/2017 1:17:32 PM

    The strangest gift I ever received was a pair of ugly holiday socks.

  933. NJAlt • 12/23/2017 1:18:52 PM

    The strangest Christmas present I’ve ever received was a gold fish that had died in the packaging.

  934. Bev Church • 1/3/2018 7:09:11 AM

    A stuffed Snoopy dog on skis

  935. Pierre Viau • 12/5/2018 1:52:17 PM

    When I was a kid I found a piece of charcoal in my hanged Christmas sock.

  936. Catherine Kelly-Brown • 12/7/2018 11:19:02 AM

    The strangest gift was a talking figure of a durd.

  937. Cathy Scharf • 12/11/2018 6:58:19 AM

    The strangest gift I have ever received was a framed picture of the person giving it to me!

  938. Robyn Walsh • 12/13/2018 1:32:04 PM

    I have been very blessed in the gifts I have received. A box of Christmas kleenex...but I loved it..so I guess it is no that strange! I honestly cannot think of anything! One Christmas my mother and I gave each other the exact same sweater! I probably wouldn't have bought one for myself, but I am glad she liked it enough to buy it for me!
