So I posed this question recently to my family and friends and most answered with their “grandparents.” Memories of awful sweaters, wrong sized underwear, pj’s and weird games kept coming up. Growing up I just had my Baba (Grandma in Russian) and she gave me great presents, but she was pretty cool. She drank her vodka, played cards and yelled on the phone with her friends in Russian.

She was not your typical Grandma but she always managed to get me great gifts, so for me it wouldn’t be my grandparents. My parents even gave me most of what I desired, however there was that year when I got a cabbage patch doll with short hair. I badly wanted one with long hair, needless to say I wasn’t impressed.

So who gave your the worst Christmas presents, was it your grandparents? What would they buy you? Let me know here.
