We’ve all been in this situation. You’re new at a job over the holidays, and you have to play Secret Santa. You have to buy a gift for a complete stranger. These people had the most awkward Secret Santa experiences you can think of. Here are a few ridiculously awkward gifts people got from co-workers:
1. Office Supplies
Yes, someone actually raided their office’s supply cupboards and gave someone stationery supplies.
2. A Used Candle
That’s so thoughtful…..You grabbed something off of your knick-knack shelf and wrapped it.
3. Toilet Paper
Useful, but not thoughtful. At least you can use it to vandalize your coworker’s house.
4. A Conch Shell
Great idea…wrap up your dumb souvenir from your beach trip.
5. Can Of Wasp Spray
Also useful, just not very festive.
6. Lump Of Coal
At least it’s relevant, but kinda mean….
7. Broken Ornament
Also festive, but still a terrible gift.
8. Watermelon (For An African-American Coworker)
Omg! That’s so racist.
9. Expired Canned Food
What were these people thinking?!
10. A Used Shoe
That’s just gross!
