'Tis the Season! -- What's the WORST "perfect gift for a food-lover" you've ever received?

Breadcrumbs | Dec 7, 2010 08:22 AM

I'm seeing them everywhere, lists, photos and recommendations with supposedly "perfect gifts for a food-lover". Often I cringe at the thought of receiving some of the items recommended.

They always make me reflect on "horrible gifts of holidays past". Here are a few that came to mind:

- oven mitts with fur on the back that were supposed to look like bear paws. Why?

- a trivet that made bird sounds (same gifter as above. . .)

- a Chia pet herb plant

- a battery operated whisk

I'm sure I'll think of more. What about you?
