A new survey not only found what the worst gifts are to buy someone this Christmas but also what are the most important factors to giving a great gift.

The three most important keys to giving a thoughtful gift:

  1. The sentiment behind it.
  2. How useful the gift is.
  3. Whether or not it has a personalized touch.

According to the survey, here's the Top 10 Worst Gifts To Give Someone For Christmas:

  1. Shower gel.
  2. Popcorn.
  3. Socks.
  4. A collection of lotions.
  5. A coffee mug.
  6. Liquor.
  7. Tea.
  8. A candle.
  9. A photo calendar.
  10. Coffee.

Also stay away from these terrible gifts that people from the survey said they had personally received on Christmas:

  • a didgeridoo.
  • a huge rubber ducky
  • a paperclip necklace
  • aluminum flip-flops
  • a box of corks
