What Are the Worst Holiday Gifts?



    Avoid Giving These Terrible Gifts

    NBC10's David Hall goes to the Springfield Mall to find out the worst gift a husband can give his wife for Christmas. (Published Friday, Dec. 17, 2010)

    Are you a great gift giver or do you need a little help at delivering holiday cheer?

    NBCPhiladelphia’s David Hall did an unscientific survey of local Christmas shoppers and came up with a list of gifts people want this season but more importantly gifts that no one wants to find under their tree.

    So what are the worst gifts to give to that special man in your life?

    • Something that doesn’t fit
    • Underwear
    • Gift certificates to restaurants
    • An empty card
    • Tires
    • Tools
    • Cooking items

    And women should never give a guy a gift that really benefits her.

    As for the worst things to give to women?

    • Tools
    • Clothes
    • Stereos
    • Cookware

    And never give a woman something that benefits the man.

    As for some good items to give guys -- a watch, electronics, shoes, ties, a pinky ring (yes a guy said that), video games and a vacation.

    And for the ladies -- jewelry, vacations and a day at the spa.
