Wright Brand Bacon will give you the chance to exchange a bad gift for a year’s supply of their bacon!

They commissioned a new survey and found out that these are the worst gifts –

1. An ugly sweater…that includes ugly Christmas sweaters

2. A necktie

3. A coffee mug

4. A scarf

5. A robe

6. Candles

7. Socks

8. Weird jewelry you’d never wear

The survey also asked what do we do with the bad gifts? Most of us keep them on hand in case the person who gave them comes over for a visit. Just over half of us will even put them on display.

Amanda Keedy, Director of Marketing, said “We know bacon is a holiday staple so it’s no surprise that more than half of consumers (53%) from this study said they’d swap an undesirable gift for a delicious slab of bacon. To help celebrate the passion people have for bacon, we’re launching the #BaconGiftSwap on Dec. 30, which happens to be National Bacon Day. It’s easy – you simply snap a photo of your undesirable gift, share it on social and 100 people will have a chance to receive bacon for a year – a gift they actually want. Visit to learn how to participate.”

Bad gifts for bacon? Not a bad idea!
