There's always that one person at any party who just doesn't know how to give a good gift.
Either it's lacking personality, they've mixed you up with your siblings, or they just really don't care and got you a generalized gift (ahem, Oliver Queen) that you didn't even ask for.
Some just have a really hard time reading people, some just can't seem to get someone something that they themselves would want, and others are just so self-involved that it's a hassle to go gift shopping.
Whether it's for the holidays, birthdays, or graduations (or any other special event), it's not likely they'll ever learn to give a good gift. It's the thought that counts, right? Well, sometimes the thought is missing, too.
Here are 15 TV characters who just cannot get the perfect gift.
Oliver Queen - Arrow
We can pretend like billionaire Oliver Queen has ever been good with gifts, but his narcissism before his life on Lian You definitely hindered his ability to give a gift someone would actually enjoy. In the present day, he’ll probably give you an arrow or something as a gift for a special occasion. I mean, he did get Barry and Iris a coffee maker as their wedding gift, and it wasn’t even on the registry.
Jason Mendoza - The Good Place
Jason is just, like, really stupid, so his gifts are definitely not going to be someone you really “want,” but rather something that’s going to make him laugh. Or, you know, he’ll forget about it altogether and you’ll get nothing, but that could be for the best.
Jughead Jones - Riverdale
Jughead’s going to get you something weird as a gift. That’s who he is… he’s weird. Don’t expect anything nice, or useful, it’s just gonna be weird.
Mick Rory - Legends of Tomorrow
Mick might give the ultimate gift when it comes to a college student's graduation party, but does a six pack really constitute a great gift for another special occasion? Mick lacks the personal touch; he's not really a great friend though either, unless your name is Leonard Snart, so could we really expect any other gift from him? Alcohol seems like the only thing he'd be compelled to get someone... and that's not exactly what some would want as a Christmas gift, now is it?
Jessica Jones - Marvel's Jessica Jones
Jessica and Mick probably give within the same idea of gifts: alcohol. Unless you’re Trish Walker, you’re getting a bottle of whiskey for whatever occasion it is, because she forgot and that’s the only thing she had lying around.
Asher Millstone - How to Get Away with Murder
Asher Millstone / How to Get Away with Murder
Asher is like the Weasley twins from Harry Potter. He’s the person you know is going to get you a prank gift, even for a serious event, but it’s going to happen and he’s going to watch you and make you open it in front of him and a large group of people so he gets the full effect.
