10 Christmas Gifts So Horrible, People are Selling Them On Carousell

This Christmas, I received a set of pink pyjamas. Yes you heard right, a set of baby pink pyjamas, complete with baby pink embroidered flowers, pale pink polka dots and lace I’d much prefer on paper doilies.

You know those gifts, and you’d sure be lucky if you haven’t received a couple of those yourself. Although I chose to keep mine (I’m a sentimental girl like that), here are 10 enterprising spirits who decided to turn their gifting disasters up for a quick buck. And there’s no better place than popular mobile marketplace, Carousell, to do just that.

For gifters out there, as much as you would like to think that your gifts are highly valued or at the very least appreciated, at times they are simply not. So now you have a list of what never to give people, ever again. What were you thinking?!

1. Fancy soaps

“You should shower more. No don’t worry about it, it’s not personal.”

“I’ll be more discreet this time. This looks like cake but smells like soap. Maybe she won’t notice.”

(But seriously? A dog which neither loves to chew nor catch Frisbees? Makes us wonder what this dog can actually do. But we’ll save that for another day.)

5. Selfie Sticks

“Because we need more awkward #selfies on social media.”

6. Soft toys

“Here’s something generic ‘cos I have no idea what else to get you, acquaintance.”

7. Calculators

“Hey you still owe me 20 cents from the meal we shared last Sunday. Here’s a calculator, so you’ll never make the same mistake again, cheapskate.”

8. Regifted shoes

“Because I need to show you how much I really care.”
