We got you and it’s truly terrible not being able to find your suitcase at the airport. Luckily, there’s a solution and a terrible gift idea for a loved one. Nothing says this suitcase is mine like an creepy cat suitcase cover. Worry : nobody else will have THIS suitcase cover, so you don’t need to consider if someone else is giving your friend this terrible gift. Useful and unique.
Carrying an umbrella can be so tough on the hands, so why not wear your umbrella on your head . Keep your hands free to taking selfies more easily!
Sometimes, you don’t want your perfect outfit ruined by the rain. Become graceful and free your hands of pesky umbrellas to enjoy ~pure freedom. You don’t even need to worry about the wind blowing off your umbrella hat! It’s the the perfect Christmas gift for your enemies for less than $10.
Get your friend this handy dog umbrella to prevent their dog from getting wet because this horrible gift for friends is secretly for you. (We don’t hide the fact that we’re cat people well.)
Do you have a friend that dreams of becoming Indiana Jones? This hat is the essential first step. As someone who gets eaten alive by mosquitos, I feel you when I wish that I could hide away. That said, you can hide just your face with this handy mosquito proof hat and still have the rest of your body eaten alive while contracting the West Nile virus. One of the worst gifts that you can get for someone who gets bit up like I do.
Sometimes, you want to be stylish, and other times you want to drink wine in public. Luckily, you can now drink wine out of your wine scarf in style while traveling with this handy combination scarf. Just don’t wear it through airport security. It will not end well.
Who’s traveled with that friend who packs three suitcases for 3 days? This jacket is PERFECT for teaching your friend how to pack light by challenging them to go on a trip with what’s in their 23 pockets. There’s a jacket for that. It even holds your iPad and surprisingly looks decent.
For your friend who always gets cold no matter where you are, even the desert, these fingerless toast handwarmers are kind of adorable, but I’m not sure that I’m brave enough to wear them in public. Not really a bad gift, but maybe a mildly embarrassing gift.
Tired of seeing someone else’s face and want them to stay warm on their cold weather holiday? You can be caring by giving them something useful yet ugly gift. Consider getting a Cthulhu face mask.
Have a friend who loves to color while sitting on planes going to destinations that you dream of going to, but they never bring you? We got the perfect gift for y’all. They can learn new words in new languages while coloring. Get them this hilarious Christmas gift.
You gotta live that first class life and if you’re into lightly mocking your friend’s love of the high life, this funny bad christmas gift is for you. Just think how many times your friend will use these silk suit pajamas while sleeping in their private bed pod in first class while you’re stuck in economy.
Everyone has that one friend really into selfies. (#nojudgment). We’re here to up your travel selfie game with phone perfect lighting and a selfie stick with built in fill lighting (#nextlevelselfie) while lightly making fun of your recipient for their love of selfies. Maybe not the worst gift ever, but it can be a funny bad christmas gift depending on how much you dislike selfies. Also, a great gift for frenemies whose instagram you lightly stalk.
Is your SO or friend really bananas about bananas? A banana carrier to-go with a carabiner for those times when you want a banana, but you’re too busy adventuring up in the mountains to carry one. Who’s heard of backpacks?
You know those times that you’re traveling solo and your significant other is telling you how much they miss cuddles? Get your significant other a boyfriend (or girlfriend) pillow to snuggle up with while they’re doing their business travels.
….I actually own one of these, which was a gift from my husband, who loves gag gifts. I was surprised how creepy yet comfortable it is. Alternatively, this is a funny yet terrible gift for friends who are single.
Paranoid about your stuff getting stolen? Panties with a hidden pocket…
There’s nothing like putting your hand down your shirt to get out your cash out from in between your bra on a warm day only to hand it to a stranger who has to touch it. Nobody is getting your cash with this hidden wallet.
For a friend who’s secretly a Bond villain and a traveler, buy a safety garter to keep their electronics safe from thieves. (I’m not sure it protects against creeps.)
Out of all these terrible Christmas gifts for travelers, I have to say that this freeing urination device for women is not a horrible Christmas gift for female travelers to give as I imagine that it can come in quite handy for those who love to hike. That said, the toilet humor makes this potentially a really awkward gift to give at a family gathering. (Edit: my sister-in-law loved it!)
Messy foodies rejoice: you can eat anything you want without worrying prior to staining your clothes before your travel jump group shot where everyone wears white clothes when you wear one of these three colorful bibs with three delightful patterns.
Nature is truly beautiful and this nature inspired calendar is a testament to the beauty of nature. Definitely on my list of worst presents to give 99% of people, but perfect for a hilarious and horrible gift for friends (with a specific sense of humor). Definitely a truly inspiring gift for nature lovers with wanderlust!
Are you from Kentucky or do you have a family member from Kentucky? This fried chicken t-shirt is the easiest way to explain to new friends that you meet while traveling where you’re from without having to say KFC for the millionth time. As beautifully written by my husband, “That is the best thing ever. Crispy chicken tee shirt omgomgomg.” I was kind of hoping it would be one of the worst presents to give to a Kentuckian tired of explaining their relationship to KFC when traveling, but maybe it’s secretly awesome.
A lot of Asian countries have fantastic amazing toilets, however the squat toilet is ….memorable not in a good way. For your friend who just returned from teaching in Asia, the worst christmas gift that you might be able to give is a toilet stool to bring back great memories. It even folds up, so it’s perfect for travel!
Are you a busy person who loves to travel and you can go nowhere without your Tabasco sauce? A camo-themed Tabasco carrier is essential. You get a free bottle of Tabasco with purchase.
You know who you are. We cannot share the armrest, so send this subtle slightly horrible gift to a friend/relative who always steals the armrest, so that the next time you sit on a plane together, you can share the armrest. Maybe your next trip won’t start off with a fight.
Side note: We witnessed the WORST fight over an armrest after a girl elbowed a random old man over the armrest. This went on for four hours even after she requested to sit in this seat for extra leg room. It was pure insanity.
Does your friend have a long plane ride ahead of them? They need a toilet bucket.
I’m sorry, this was the single worst gift that we found. I think it’s the perfect gift for your enemies or a friend who has a toilet sense of humor with a love for funny bad Christmas gifts.
