Birthday gifts: the good, the bad and the ugly

The bad (and the ugly)

Rex London recently conducted a survey to find out what's the nation's favourite type of birthday gift. However, in the spirit of good fun, we also asked people to name and shame the worst birthday gift they'd ever received. Some of the answers really made us laugh. Here's our countdown of the top 10:

#10 - DVD my husband wanted

#9 - Extension lead

#8 - Out-of-date fudge

#7 - Anti freeze

#6 - Ceramic monkey ornaments

#5 - 6 months car tax

#4 - Knitted nativity scene

#3 - Ugly china doll which reminded them of me

#2 - Pants in a sandwich box

#1 - Foot shaped candle

The good

Now for the good news. To avoid seeing one of your presents appear on this list, make sure you take a look at the gifts available on Rex London! We’ve got birthday gifts for all members of the family, whatever they’re into (and not a knitted nativity scene or piece of old fudge in sight).
