Best worst Christmas gifts on Gumtree

Christmas Jumper

They’re the presents you probably wouldn’t want this Christmas. Or would you? Everyone’s tastes are different – one person’s trash being another’s treasure and all that. And when it comes to gift giving it can be hard to get it right all the time. Sometimes the gifts we think will be absolute winners end up completely missing the mark.

But then there are those who embrace the awkward. Those who love giving gifts that are a little bit provocative, that leave the receiver frowning, wondering whether to say thank you or wait for the ‘real’ gift. If that sounds like you, then we have found some cringeworthy Christmas gifts you’re going to love! But be quick, items sell quickly on Gumtree – especially at this time of year – so start making offers as these won’t last.

Bug Catcher

A bug catcher might be a great gift for a 10 year old boy, but unless said 10 year old is a confirmed bachelor living on his own, you’ve just sentenced all his entire family to live with bugs for at least the next six months. Don’t be surprised if your dinner invitations disappear after handing over this creepy gift.

Oh Deer

Oh deer. While some might love a giant print of a rainbow deer, others… not so much. The risk with buying home décor as gifts is that you can never account for someone’s personal taste. If you want a lavish post-modern gift that could go either way, then this one’s for you.

Darth Vader Chopsticks

Because who doesn’t want to eat their noodles with the theme tune of Star Wars playing in their head? Not to mention being able to see your food in a whole new light! Whoever said we shouldn’t play with our food has never eaten dinner with Darth Vader chopsticks.

Horse Head Mask

What to get the person who has it all? A hilariously weird latex horse head mask, that’s what! Wrap it up and put it under the tree. Or for maximum effect, gently pop it next to their pillow while they’re sleeping. Guaranteed to make it a Christmas they’ll never forget!

Boyfriend Pillow

Meet the boyfriend pillow; for the girl (or boy) whose dating life is in more of a shambles than Bridget Jones’. Maybe you genuinely want her to feel comforted, or perhaps it’s a revenge gift from being mean to you in high school. Either way, nothing will confirm her single-status more than a man-pillow made from memory foam. As if the holidays weren’t reminder enough.

Moustache Dummy

Movember may be over but moustaches for babies are always in style. Treat the baby in your life (and its parents) to a novelty dummy for hours of baby-watching fun. Be sure to take loads of photos and share them on Instagram #winning

It’s vintage. It’s a kid’s toy. It’s a collector’s item. What could possibly go wrong?

Awkward family photos anyone? The retro, ugly 1980s knitted Christmas jumper is cool again. No, really it is. Give your outdated family and friends a makeover with a seriously ugly, seriously fashionable Christmas jumper. Extra points for convincing them to wear it the whole day.
