Women Reveal the Worst Gift Their Husbands Ever Gave Them

With the holidays fast approaching, it might be time to leave those wish lists prominently displayed, ladies. If one doesn't do this, she could end up with a self-help book and some fleece jogging pants that might've fit two kids ago (and seem to suggest that if only she did some actual running, said pants might fit). Not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything, ahem. (Okay, maybe I'm still salty after Christmas two years ago! But come on, husband!)

Of course, when it comes to gifts, it's the thought that counts -- and the surprise factor is always a bonus -- but, let's be honest, it can be pretty disappointing to open a beautifully wrapped box only to find a garden gnome or handheld vacuum inside. We spoke to women who have also been caught off guard by a random present that sadly fell well below their expectations. Ladies aren't asking for the world this holiday season, but they probably don't want chunky white sneakers, beef jerky, or anything to do with squirrels -- seriously, no squirrels! 

So pass this list on to the kids, the hubby, or even some well-meaning family members. It could definitely help with the gifting this year, that's for sure!
