We've all got a horror story about the time our mom gave us a box filled with tampons and a training bra in front of our entire family that one Christmas, or the time our new boyfriend gave us a membership to an S&M club, or, worse still, diet pills. In honor of the worst gifts we, the Outblush staff, have ever received, we present a special holiday edition of Doubtblush: Wreck the Halls, where we'll tell you the stories of the most awful gifts we've gotten, and find a modern counterpart to it.... You know, just in case you've got a White Elephant party coming up.
We've all had those moments - the excitement of opening a gift, ripping off the paper, the moment before you lift the top of the box, and then... immediate disappointment.
Don't get me wrong, the Little Mermaid Nightgown ($17) is awesome; had I not been 15 when I received it from my grandmother, I might have had the proper amount of excitement required. I suppose it's understandable, we all have relatives that we don't see that often, perhaps in their minds our growth and maturity stand still.
For future reference, the Betsey Johnson 'Luscious' Chemise ($65) would have been a better option.
