Impossible Question 12-5-2017

According to a new survey, this came in at #1 on the list of  "Top 50 Worst Christmas Presents," What is it?


A new study confirms what many of us already knew: in-laws are  the worst when it comes to giving presents at Christmas.  Mother and father-in-laws have the worst reputation for giving gifts which either upset, offend or bewilder the rest of the family.   According to this study of 2,000 adults, commissioned by  Vistaprint  UK via,  work colleagues, aunts and sisters also often give gifts which never get used.  



One in twenty people even says their partner often fails to get it right, with one in ten falling out with a loved one after they picked a terrible present.  


One in six would rather hide the gift somewhere in the house rather than admit they don’t like it, and 25% of respondents would re-wrap and re-gift to someone else.  


Almost half will take the present to a charity store so someone else can benefit from their misfortune.  


Almost six in ten people receive up to five presents each Christmas which they then never use –  while just over half receive up to the same number each birthday.  


Nearly four in ten people said partners purchase the most impressive presents, while 20% said children choose great gifts.  


Clothing, music and personalized gifts were respondents’ favorite presents, while jewelry from a favorite store or gift vouchers are always received well.  


Fourteen percent of adults would love tickets to see a favorite band, one in ten are happy with slippers –  and one in 20 would be delighted with an engagement ring.  


One in six people like a gift with sentimental value, and seven in ten enjoy anything  which is handmade.  


Eight in ten adults admit it’s the thought that counts when present giving.
