Happy holidays, here is the worst gift ever

So we talked about the Best Gifts Ever.

But what about the truly awful ones?

Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has a tradition where he has parents prank their children, video tape it, post it on YouTube, and then the best selections are shown on TV across America.

It’s not as evil as it sounds, I swear. Or maybe it is. Whatever the case, these kids were arguably given the worst presents ever — everything from potatoes to a tube of toothpaste — and they had no qualms about saying so.

To be fair, I think I’d probably be a little irked if my mom and dad let me open a gift early, only to find out that it was a packet of taco seasoning. (Check out part one here, though be warned that the ending has some language that's NSFW.)

Have you had some really awful gifts? Or a gift you thought was awful at the time, but would love to get today? Or maybe something so bad you couldn't even stand the thought of re-gifting?
