The Worst Christmas Gifts 2016
While everyone is busy scouring the shelves for the BEST Christmas gift ideas this season, we’ve went against the grain to find the absolute worst. As the badness of gifts simply cannot be quantified, these gems are listed in no particular order. Enjoy.
Unfortunately they probably won’t disappear for a while, but if you don’t buy one or ask for one, that is a good start for humanity. We won’t be providing a link for you.
Modesty Panels - Cleavage covers
Nothing says Merry Christmas like a subtle nudge telling your loved one to cover their cleavage. Clothes are hard enough to buy for someone, but we think that the Modesty Panels should be scratched off your list. Sorry guys.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7
For the person you’re straight-up trying to kill, why not buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The phone is a literal deathtrap, and even if it doesn’t explode, it’ll cause the recipient a huge inconvenience considering it’s banned on all flights. Buy this one only for someone who truly deserves it.
GoPro Karma Drone
It was a good thought, but GoPro may have rushed their first drone to market just a bit too quickly. With their first 2500 drones being recalled promptly for falling out of the sky at random, the Karma Drone is best kept out of the air and on the shelf. If you want one though, you should be able to get it again on the GoPro site.
Anything From Katerina Kamprani
Katerina Kamprani is an architect and 3D modeler that likes to find creative and simple ways to completely ruin the effectiveness of common items. Very simple changes make for the absolute worst gifts. View them all.
Yep, its a thing. But not a good thing. The ingenious lads at Suck Uk came up with this gem, and all they needed was a hole punch.
We don’t have to tell you not to buy this, because their description does that all by itself: No tinge or burn on the tongue, no obnoxious smoky or chemical flavors, just a clean refreshing potato vodka with delicious savory bacon flavor.
Hand Fitness Trainer
It's like a weird futuristic wanking claw. Don't buy it, but if you do, its here.
A Donation in their name
We shouldn’t need to say it but if a donation is your idea of an epic gift, you are just the worst kind of person.
FlatEv - The Keurig of Tortillas
Jealous of your cousin’s beautiful kitchen? Why not ruin it with the Flatev... a gigantic, ugly machine that offers its user a ridiculously inconvenient way to make “homemade” tortillas. Despite its absurd size, the Flatev amazingly cooks just one tortilla at a time. It can’t cook homemade tortillas, because it won’t accept homemade dough: the Flatev only works with single-use tortilla pods sold by the company at US$0.79 apiece. It’s ugly and inconvenient, but anyone you purchase it for will feel obligated to use it whenever you’re around because it’s also very expensive.
Designed by Apple in California - Book
This costly coffee table book is full of photos of Apple’s products from the past twenty years. At a price of $300 you can actually buy some cool Apple products instead, but then I guess the coffee table would be bare. Buy it here
One more for the drawer… you know, the drawer in the kitchen with all the other things you don’t use. Don’t get us wrong, these won’t water down your whiskey, but they will shatter your teeth when you take a sip. The Eternal Ice Cube can be bought here, in case you want to shatter someones dreams.
That's all we have this year, but we want to hear from you! Do you have any additions? Is there something you think we got wrong? Do you hate us because you already wrapped several of these gifts? That's fair. Let us know in the comments! Be sure to check out our BEST Christmas Gifts list of 2016 too!
