Cheap Japanese loudspeakers.

Hands down, no question, an MP3 player. Good intentions aside, like pouring salt in a wound.

My daughter bought me an "iDog" which is a little tinny speaker inside a plastic dog that shakes its lighted tail in rythm with the music. You plug it into an ipod. Tinniest sound since the first pocket transistor radio.

Well, honestly noone in my family would think to get me something on their own (in fact they come to me for advice about what they need to buy). Even my very supportive wife asks either me, or if it's going to be a surprise, one of my friends before she buys anything. But if someone really decided to get "creative" it'd be one of those plastic POS USB turntables designed specifically to make all your "old" LPs into MP3s.

If my family won the lottery and decided to give everyone in the family $12k in gifts, I would hope they wouldn't get me that horrible Sony omni-directional floorstander that glows in the dark and looks eerily like a mutant lava lamp. But that's just me...
