The Worst Gifts to Get on Christmas

There are always a couple of random gifts everyone frantically pulls out of storage this time of year. Their origin could be a yankee swap seven years ago, an ex-lover, or a well-meaning grandma. We all have received and gifted questionable, vanilla-scented things. 

After a recent SNL skit immortalized the ever-circulated peach candle, VICE thought it was time to do a highlight reel of the type of present that no one wants or keeps. Photographer Trey Wright brought theses gems to life in the gallery below as a cautionary tale for this holiday season.
