Christmas is a time for giving but sometimes the givers get it so wrong that the turkey comes served with a side order of bitter, resentful tears.

From the book you received that was inscribed with someone else’s name to the tartan ironing board cover your loved one believed was a practical, yet stylish gift we want to hear all about the worst Christmas presents ever.

What is the worst or weirdest Christmas present you have ever received?

So send us your stories of the most ghastly gifts of Christmasses past and if you’ve a photo of said offending articles all the better
