  1. A ‘Poppit’ model hearing aid! As a child I sent off for one in the post from a Sunday paper ad, thinking it was a magic gadget that made everyone hear better. I was disappointed when it arrived, but not as red faced as my mother when a salesman turned up at the door a week or two later!

    I’ve had a few odd things come through the post, epty jiffy bags adressed to me, a solitary teabag, incontinence pants, single sanitary towel (unused but also unwrapped), a pack of 3 cat biscuits, a tiny little chocolate bar and but the strangest has to be a sock just one sock, don’t know who sent it, it was in a jiffy bag with no indication of where it had come from, it was actually a very nice sock but about as much use as a chocolate teapot to me. I kept it for a little while in case the other sock arrived but it never did, shame really!

I have absolutely no clue why the prize provider (whoever they were – no compliment slip or letter) had sent me the baubles along with the DVD!

  59. Claire sen says:

    About 100 loo rolls! I was so excited to see such a big box outside when I got home. Definitely the most boring and weird parcel I’ve ever received. (It wasn’t even that I’d won them, it was for one of the holiday cottages I manage!)

I won a #NationalFreindshipDay surprise from them which turned out to be a very squashed box of Mince Pie crumbs but as they where wrapped in a beautiful Ted Gift box with all the wrapping a stunning ballgown would have gone in, I still got a win as used that to wrap a gift for Xmas 🙂

  170. Katrina Adams says:

    Reading through these comments has had me in fits of giggles. The weirdest thing we’ve had through the letterbox was a bright green mankini which was given second hand off eBay it was from our friends for my husbands birthday as a joke, we had the last laugh though when he sent them a picture of him wearing it and then wrapped it back up for their birthday!

    We get a Christmas and sent every year for someone that has never lived at my address (our family are the only people that have lived here), no returns address and we can’t find the person in our area. I feel so sorry for the person that sends it every year but there’s no way I can help

  190. Sophie C says:

    A set of Allen keys…I have no idea where they came from, they are at the top of my ‘worst prize ever list’, however my husband uses them all the time!

  191. Jane Sanderson says:

    Some live caterpillars from a grow your own butterfly comp – it was fascinating. On of the butterflies had a wing deformity so we kept it. We called it Frank and it used to sit outside on its sugar sponge and even went on holiday to my friends when we went away. It lived for about 6 weeks and gradually faded away. Must admit I cried and still think of Frank every time I see a red admiral butterfly

A pallet left on my doorstep no one owned up to (think builders around the corner dumped it!). Christmas cards and Birthday cards for people I’d never heard of but due to the wonders of the Internet I have managed to find the correct person (I’m a bit obsessive like that!). Worst thing was a 25p coupon that was worth less than the postage!

  220. Fiona jk42 says:

    A shoe-box sized package that when opened revealed a mass of packaging and one single red coloured krill oil gel capsule. I’m vegetarian so I would never have ordered it, and I was really annoyed about the environmental impact of all that packaging. I didn’t want to waste it, so cut open the capsule and put the oil on the cat food, my cat seemed to enjoy the flavour.

  221. Michelle Smailes says:

    A commode chair! Left in the front garden for everyone to see while I was at work! lol. It wasn’t for me in case you are wondering, it had been delivered to the wrong address and just left there by the delivery man. It’s funny now but I was not impressed at the time!

  222. Simon Tinsley says:

    8 wooden pallets. I woke up one morning, looked out of the front bedroom window and there they were stacked up outside my front door with a “Sorry we missed you” note stuck to the front of them. I hadn’t ordered any pallets, the note didn’t have a company name or telephone number. It really was just a note with “Sorry we missed you” written on it. I knocked on all the doors with the same number in different streets nearby and no one claimed them. Eventually one of my neighbours had them for firewood.

Think it must have been intended for another address, The name on the front of the box was just addressed to “My Dear Friends’ so that didn’t help.

    Although it wasn’t through the post, a double bed was couriered to us quite recently. We didn’t order it and had no idea who it was to go back to as the teenager took delivery and the dog destroyed the invoice before I got home from work. Still sitting in it’s box hoping the original owners ask for it, failing that it’s going to go to charity.

  372. Kim W says:

    My husband said my broomstick was outside the front door. It was wrapped up and looked like it! It was late at night and Amazon must have left it there. I had to laugh as it was Halloween, but it was the apple picker I’d ordered to get the apples down from the tree!

I’d just started a diet that week so decided to give the hamper to my lovely next door neighbour instead of keeping it and being tempted off my diet.
