A Basket of Stuff No One Wants: A GIVEAWAY!

by Shauna on November 20, 2012

UPDATE! The winner of the basket of gifts no one wants is…

Number 19! Which, according to my math, is Nicci!

Congratulations, Nicci! Email me your address at shauna@shaunaglenn.com


Has someone in your family ever given you the WORST GIFT EVER?

Well, here’s your chance to return the favor. Because that’s what the spirit of the Holidays is all about: revenge. Am I right?

Check out these god awful gift ideas on our Babble site today, and then come back here and leave a comment. I know, it’s annoying with all the clicking from one site to another, but I can’t give it away over there. You’ll thank me when you win and you get to see the look on your weird Uncle Chip’s face after he opens his toilet mug.

The giveaway is open to anyone of the human species in the US and Canada.  All you have to do is tell me why you want this crap. One winner will be chosen at random Friday, November 23rd.

Here’s the link one more time: The Gifts You Hope You Never Get

I want to win all this awesome crap! I’ve got some seriously messed up in laws that honestly will appreciate some of this stuff because they aren’t smart enough to realize that’s its a gag gift. :P It would be nice to cross their name off my Christmas list…

The toilet mug is FANTASTIC! I need it. To give to someone. Particularly a frenemy.

I NEED this stuff. Our extended family does a white elephant/gag game and so does my close friend group Christmas. These things are soooo perfect and I know will make everyone think that I am the best at finding these things and then of course I will have to tell them all about you and your site and then they won’t think I am best anymore, but they will check out your site and you’ll have even more minions!


Claire November 20, 2012 at 3:56 pm

OMG! I know who I would give all of this to! I would be the hit of the yearly family Christmas reunion!! Best Giveaway Ever!!!


Kristen November 20, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Bacon… it’s the candy of meats! Seriously – all this stuff is great on it’s own but to combine it into the worst gift basket ever is PURE GENIUS! Sadly, I know plenty of people who would love several of these – including me. Yes, I’m that demented!

I think I could make great use of each of these horrifying gifts.

A. The sweater alone makes this worth typing out on my phone. It’s god-awful goodness. I will wear it with all the pride and dignity it deserves to every ugly sweater party this year. In addition, I will wear it to sit on santas lap.

B. All of the various other gifts will go to relatives who have so generously gifted me over the years :
> a hideous purse from K-Mart.
( what male shops for a purse for a woman anyways?)

> a roll of toilet paper with bathroom humor on it.
> fake vomit.
(The real deal would have been more impressive)

> A book on how to keep a clean and tidy home.
( it IS clean. Maybe not Martha Stewart decor, but clean.)

> and the grand prize of them all :
A 20 gallon fish tank with fake flowers and animals poised around an electric waterfall, all hot glued together in a forrest scene complete with water. ( she was really into fake waterfalls that year.)

For the reasons listed above ( and so many more I shouldn’t list), I think I could make the most glorious use of this horrendous package.

Thank you.

i want this crap, because i have a 25 year old son who’d probably take great pleasure in this crap. he’s a big fan of bacon, and i could totally see him wearing that tie around. the other stuff might end up in his and his roommates’ display cabinet. they are collectors of all these strange, cool, weird, wonderful, wacky, etc. he and his roommates are strange mofos, and they would appreciate all this stuff as only strange mofos can :)

My in-laws are coming for Xmas — I’d really like to make them feel welcom!


Shelley Jackson November 20, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Awesome! I need all of this stuff!


Danyelle November 20, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Last Christmas when I played Santo with my family, my stepmother gave me a Redneck tanktop which was a used pair of my dad’s boxer briefs with a head hole cur in the middle. I need a good gift to follow her up with.


Jennifer Adams November 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Ok, I totally need everything here. I know what I would do with each and every one of them. And I need that sweater for my niece’s ugly sweater party!!!!


Krystal November 20, 2012 at 7:09 pm

I would love to give it to my in laws!!! They would have no idea that it was a gag gift and that alone would make them the best presents ever. That Slut Soup has my sister in law written all over it lol!


Tracey November 20, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I believe there are typos in the title of this post. This is stuff EVERYONE wants. Soup for sluts??? Sign. Me. Up.


Angela November 20, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Ummm, seriously, I think I want almost everything on this list. These would be some great gifts for my in-laws. They would get a kick out of them.

LOVE all of this stuff! The mug would be prefect for my Dad- he’s a plumber! AND the rest would be great for White Elephant gifts/birthday gag gifts (or pretend they are real gifts, gifts). Except for the Soup for Sluts. My Fantasy Football team is the Redheaded SL,UTs (I’m redheaded and live near Salt Lake City, Utah) and the soup is mine!


Caroline Cameron November 21, 2012 at 9:10 am

Ohhhh, this is just what I need. 3 years ago my kids complained about several presents they received, and ever since, I make sure to give them at least one really horrible gift that they better not complain about or they have to give everything back. A lesson in gratitude. If this stuff isn’t horrible, I don’t know what is.

Crossing my fingers…


Maria November 21, 2012 at 9:31 am

I gave that toilet mug to my Mom last year! It goes quite well with the butt mug I gave her the year before.

She collects coffee cups, so….yeah, I try to find the tackiest one I can each year. I might go for the “I love Peckers” one this Christmas.


Nicci @ Changing the Universe November 21, 2012 at 10:08 am

I want that crap because I saw every single one and thought “OMG that would be PERFECT for my sister. No, THAT would be perfect. OMG THESE ARE ALL PERFECT GIFTS FOR HER!!!”

Seriously. She would love them all. And would wear the SHIT out of that sweater (pun intended).

Tammy Kelly November 22, 2012 at 10:56 am

Omg, I love this stuff!! Could make for some good pay backs!


Tawny November 22, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Great items to give to monster-in-laws!


Nikki Nicholas Mohamed November 22, 2012 at 1:30 pm

HA!~ Our family is the WORST re-gifters ever. My mom got a pair of gloves from my grandmother one year. My cousin, Carrie, remarked, “Oh, those are great gloves!” Mom later tried them on but they didn’t fit. So she wrapped them up and gave them to my cousin, Carrie, the following Christmas. She was ecstatic when she opened them and of course, they fit (like gloves!)….Her mother was PISSED and turned around to my grandmother and hissed, “AREN’T THOSE THE GLOVES I GAVE YOU 3 CHRISTMASES AGO!”

Anyway…I want the mug. You can leave it with Monika till I get back.

I want this awesome basket because I have 8 awesome friends that this shit is perfect for!


BreAnn November 23, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Omg – if I don’t win this give away, then I need to know where to buy this. I have a white elephant/tacky sweater party to go to and this is PERFECT.


Stephanie C. November 24, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Amazing crazy gifts!

Please pick me. I have five spoiled kids who have Santa lists with nothing under $100. This would be the perfect round up of gifts. I also have four brothers who all deserve a little less than something special for assuming I am in charge of dishes at every family event!
