The Worst Last Minute Christmas Gifts We've Ever Received (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Trust us.

No matter how hard you try, sometimes you’re left having to do some last-minute Christmas shopping.

While some people enjoy the “excitement” of trying to pick up a present and beat the clock, we'd prefer to be home, preparing for the festivities. We’re also not big fans of being on the receiving end of painfully obvious last-minute gifts. We’re talking the Starbucks gift sets, holiday stuffed animals and yes, the infamous Whitman’s sampler.

And apparently, we’re not the only ones who feel this way. HuffPost Home editor Brie Dyas took to the HuffPost Live hot seat to discuss the 7 worst last-minute gifts. Watch the video above to see the list and not only hear why these presents are just a bad idea, but also some hilarious stories.
