Gift Swap competition – your truly awful Christmas presents revealed!

When we consider the great philosophical question – is it better to give or to receive? – we don’t normally have such a challenge to answer it! Just after Christmas we invited our followers on Twitter and Facebook to share pictures of their most embarrassing presents, for the chance to ‘swap’ them for flights.  It quickly became apparent that sometimes the giver must have been having a lot more fun than the recipient!

It took hours of deliberation to decide which of the hundreds of entries received could be judged the most awful Christmas gift. The judging criteria was to look for the most embarrassing pressie, but also something a bit fun and creative… and possibly something which inspired the most pity! There were a surprising number which fit the bill.

The winner, without further ado, is… Gemma Gothard, with a hedgehog handbag!

Here is a selection of some of the best (and worst!) of the rest of the entries
