Fruitcakes. Socks. Ties. That Kama Sutra book from your Aunt Nellie, who thought it was a book about yoga. You kids love the yoga so much, she just wanted to help out.

We've all been there! Whether the presents be from family, or from coworkers at a secret Santa gift exchange, we've all given or received some doozies.

This list is to let you know that you could have given or received way worse, or much, much better.

15. Awesome Mixtape Vol. 2 – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

It's almost like the one where Chandler gave Monica that mixtape for Valentine's Day, but it was actually a mixtape Janice had given Chandler. But not really.

You can try to outgive Peter's mama, but nothing beats a mixtape from your dearly departed mama, years after her death.

14. Wooden Pickle – Bad Santa (2003)

You can give someone a pickle. You can even give someone a wooden pickle. But a wooden pickle covered with the blood you shed creating that wooden pickle? Never will that be topped.

13. Official Red Ryder Carbine Action 200 Shot Range Model Air Rifle – A Christmas Story (1983)

It was going to be the leg lamp, but Ralphie's dad won that major award in a contest. So it doesn't count. But every kid born before the time of wanted a BB gun growing up, so it would take one hell of a gift to top that.

12. A Profound Life Experience – The Game (1997)

It was a great gift, what Conrad did for his big brother Nicky. However, if you're thinking about getting a gift that you can't afford for someone in your family, make sure they're happy to be alive after receiving it, so they're also happy to be paying for half of it.

11. Andy's Toys – Toy Story 3 (2010)

I...this...I just can't. Why'd I have to watch that video. Now I need a hug.

10. Freedom – Aladdin (1992)

What gift out there couple possibly be better than giving a 10,000 year old genie his freedom?

9. Gizmo – Gremlins (1984)

So, you got a puppy for Christmas? Or a kitten? What happens if you feed Fluffy or Scruffy after midnight? They sh*t on the carpet, not transform into murderous monsters. Gremlins for the win!

Billy's mom is one unassuming BAMF, by the way.

8. Turbo Man – Jingle All The Way (1996)

Your parents got you loads of Ninja Turtle action figures when you were young, but when the stores didn't have a Leonardo, did your dad pet a turtle, roll around in mutagen, and transform into the leader of the group? Was he transformed from the norm by the nuclear goop? I didn't think so.

7. Lots Of Money – The Ultimate Gift (2006)

Aunt Susie gave you $5 every Christmas, and man did that just ro...r...really suck compared to this guy's gift from his recently deceased, filthy rich grandfather.

6. Turtle Doves – Home Alone 2: Lost In New York (1992)

The only thing better than getting one of a set of two turtles doves from your bff would be, oh, maybe a bottle of tequila. From the sequel to the best Christmas movie ever, starring the cute Macaulay Culkin and Susan Boyle.

5. The Heart Of The Ocean – Titanic (1997)

I don't know about everybody else, but if jewelry is ever on my wife's wishlist, it's going to be something that Jared's is having a special on. And she sure as hell better not toss it over the side of a boat. But if she does, one can only hope she screws with everyone else on board as much as Rose did in Titanic's alternate ending, before she chucks it overboard.

That really sucks, lady!

4. Factory Tour – Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory (1971)

Even though a tour of a magical chocolate factory full of orange tiny singing people would absolutely kick butt, it looks like Bud Light has finally taken a whole lot of baby boomers dream of winning a golden ticket, and translated that into beer and football. Nevertheless, here's Willy's grand entrance!


3. Chucky Doll – Child's Play (1988)

This one is sure to make every mother out there proud of herself, no matter how disappointed her kids might be with their gifts. At least she didn't get them a doll possessed by a spell-casting serial killer.

Holy crap! Andy's mom is the 7th Heaven mom! And that damn Chucky has me creeped the hell out again, just like when I was nine.

2. Sweet Car – Karate Kid (1984)

Mr. Miyagi really did set the bar high for dads everywhere. And karate instructors. And apartment maintenance men. When he gave Daniel his choice of cars, the kid chooses the yellow ragtop.

Who wants to see that car scene when you can see John Cena and Mikey Day square off as the Johnny and Daniel on ?

1. Crappy Car – Good Will Hunting (1997)

That crappy car will probably still be running twenty years from now when they have to bury that 2016 beamer XZ200PT Deluxe daddy moneybags shelled out 100 grand for.

And my parting gift to you? A classic line.

You're very welcome!
