At sometime or another, all of us have received bad Christmas presents. These could be a pair of socks hand knitted by Aunt Mary or your adult son's gift of a lock de-icer with batteries included. No matter what it was, we'll never forget them.
In this contest you are asked to create bad Christmas gifts any way you like.
