It’s just what I’ve always wanted.
With two Irish-flavoured Christmas tees from the excellent Savage Christmas Tee range on offer we asked:
What was the worst gift you have ever given?
You answered in your tens.
Nessy: “The worst present I have ever given was a bunch of garlic to my friend who was moving to France to study. If I win, I would redeem myself by offering the t shirt to them.”
Gary Byrne: “The worst present I have ever given was a onesie to my dad. Not sure what i was thinking.”
ReprBertie: “The worst present I have ever given was a copy of Magnolia to my very strict Catholic father. I meant to get Memento and can just imagine his face when Tom Cruise started his ‘Respect the cock’ presentation.”
Frilly: “The worst present I have ever given was a giant stick of rock (Blarney) to me Nanna Lulu. She hadn’t a tooth in her head. The noise it made off her dentures has me laughing like an eejit here. T’was like a set of castanets …The oul’dote was drunk as a skunk and didn’t know what she was doing.”
Schweddy: “The worst present I have ever given was a cheap plastic onion dicer gizmo to my mother. And of course it didn’t work.”
Mr T: “The worst present I have ever given was a William Shatner spoken word version of Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP to my office Secret Santa.”
i, scooperman: “The worst present I have given was a smashed delf teapot to my mam. I got it in a pound shop and broke the spout off. She also knew my dad had given me 20 quid to buy her a present. She was genuinely upset. I was a little sh1t.”
Janet: “The worst present I ever gave was to my Da. A classy hand-made (by me) lumpy, ceramic swan ashtray every year for 10 years, God bless his patience.”
Clifford Killeen: “The worst present I have ever given was a creme egg to my mother for her birthday, because I had bought the egg for myself, come in the door to be reminded about her birthday, and just handed it to her, cool as cucumbers.”
Shane: “The worst present I have ever given was a mint-flavoured rope bone to my ex-girlfriend’s dog. The dog swallowed the bone and had to have his stomach pumped.”
Tommy: “The worst present i have ever given was a yearly gift of pound shop aftershave to my brothers in law. Classy stuff called “Ferrari” and “Musk”. The lads dutifully took them home before binning them, apart from Alan, bit of an asshole to be honest. My sister divorced him last year, unrelated to my sad tale I think.”
Inopro: “Soaps to my mother before I knew what a sound one she was.”
