5 Terrible, Free Christmas Gift Ideas on Craigslist in Grand Rapids

Even the most dedicated procrastinator has to admit that we’re running out of time for Christmas shopping.

When it’s too late for expedited shipping and you’re out of Christmas cash, there’s always something for free on Craigslist.

Just hope that you don’t receive any of these items under your Christmas tree.

When it comes to shopping on Craigslist you get what you pay for. These five listings are perfect examples of that.

Beauty and bargains are in the eye of the beholder, but if you think you’ve found a good deal and thoughtful gift here, you may want to get your eyes checked.



Sick of winter snow? Here’s your chance to rewind the calendar to fall with 37 bags of leaves.

You might expect to find pine needles under your Christmas tree, but thanks to this Craigslist seller you can confuse everyone with a big pile of leaves instead.

The bags of leaves were listed about 37 days before Christmas leading us to believe this is part of some extended version of the “12 Days of Christmas” that we’ve never heard before.

And we’re not looking forward to Day 36 – Day 13.

It’s been a while since the leaves were listed, so it’s possible that someone beat you to them…but we think you’ll be okay.




Seller says, “good condition besides the peeling.”

Enough said.




This snow blower doesn’t work, but if you know how to fix it or can use the parts it may actually have some value. Maybe.

What sets this listing apart is the seller.

Want good customer service? Then why are you looking on Craigslist?

The seller says, “all free so please don’t bother me with questions just email me for address and come get.”

Because when it comes to questions about your free, broken snow blower ain’t nobody got time for that.

Oh. We forget to mention you’ll also have to take a “non-running trimmer, old fishing waders, junky hose and lamp with broken cord.” The seller requires that you take everything.





When it comes to books, magazines (yes, they still make them) and all reading material, everyone knows that the real value comes with finding printed material that’s never been used before.

Because who wants to read an already read magazine? Gross. That’s why we stopped going to the dentist 15 years ago.

This seller understands that value and they want to make sure you know that most of these magazines were “never even looked at or opened.”




Who could forget the mysterious blue dress that took the internet by storm? Or was it gold?

Well, it looks like we’ve found the latest viral sensation on Craigslist.

The seller is offering this “blue couch” for free. Now take another look at the photo.

Hard to believe this chameleon couch is free!
