WHAT? 1D’s Albums Are The Most Returned Gifts This Christmas!

Surely this can’t be true, right?

Louis and Liam Payne

It has been revealed that One Direction albums are amongst the most returned and the most unwanted gifts this Christmas time! Clearly a lot of people out there have a terrible taste in music and don’t appreciate the magic of 1D!

Although both One Direction albums have been top sellers around the world, particularly in the UK and American markets, tens of thousands of people were not impressed on Christmas day when they unwrapped either One Direction album.

Website NME has released the returning figures of various albums that were bought this festive season.

Adele’s 21 was the most returned, with 47,315 units being ditched by those who can’t handle another rendition of “Rolling in the Deep”. 36,846 copies of One Direction’s debut album, “Up All Night”, were returned by unhappy gift receivers.

Emeli Sande’s LP also didn’t fare well, with 41,038 copies being sent back.

In the movie stakes, Twilight took out the unfavourable first position with 36,217 DVD’s & BluRays heading back to the stores. Even Batman the Dark Knight has 35, 461 returned this year.

We know none of you would have returned back One Direction paraphernalia, but we want to know what stuff you did for Christmas, so let us know below!

  • Anita Rzewski

    Maybe the people who returned the albums were directioners and already had the album so they didn’t want a second one

    • JSRRamsaran

      i agree!!!

    • TaibaAli

      yh but still wouldn’t they want to treasure it??? I know I would and i am a directioner

      • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

          • erisvey casas

            I got take me home at target and it was like $12 the cd but the year book was like $20 but im sure if you look for the up all nigth cd maybe is in target and it migth be cheap

          • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

            @ Walmart it’s $10 and Claire’s $15.

          • 1D LOVER

          • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

            I live in the USA and we barely get any merch I would usually buy it from Claire’s Walmart target. There is actually a 1d store but it is in NYC and Chicago and I love in Arizona it’s like a billion miles away :(

          • amazing#1d

            Poor you, pretty much every store I go to has something with One Direction it!

          • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

            Do u live in the uk

          • amazing#1d

            Yep! Lucky me!!!

          • amazing#1d

            Yep! Lucky me!!!

          • Marzhela

            Nope I don’t, cause I have the songs in my iPod so idk if it’s worth getting the CD’s but I got the TMH year book thingy so yeah I guess getting the CD’s is good cause you get to like cherish them and stuff like when its the future and yeah…idk.

        • http://twitter.com/FabulousNails FabulousNails

          There is an opportunity for those who don’t have UAN yet.

          It’s actually cheaper now that the other one is out.
          It’s at 7€ right now for a CD on the french amazon website. No idea how that translates on I tunes, but I’m sure you can find a good bargain.

          • 1D LOVER

            I want UAN and TMH I just got the limited yearbook edition 4 Xmas u know that book that talks about 1D crazy fans and other stuff

          • hailey

            me too!!!

      • bavna sharma luvs u!

        Yeah probably..

    • http://twitter.com/FabulousNails FabulousNails

      I think it’s the “up all night” album, so it could have been a mistake, the person wanted “take me home”.
      But some must be real unwanted gifts too, it happens too.

    • Grace

      that’s what I thought…but if they really didn’t want the album :'(

      • erisvey casas

        Then that would be just mest up

        • Grace Moorhead

          yeah, no kidding

        • Grace Moorhead

          yeah, no kidding

    • Julia

      Thats what i was thinking bc my ant got me the first 1D cd and i already had it

    • Jasmine

      I hope so! I got TMH for Christmas and loooved it!

    • Sarah

      100% agree cause I can’t find any reason that sb wanna return the best album of the year but i wish i were instead of that people cause i don’t have their album and i want it:-C

        • Sarah

          Money is not my problem! The problem is that where i live i can’t buy it and i can’t even order it from other countries

          • http://twitter.com/FabulousNails FabulousNails

            I’m sorry to hear that! I am used to purchasing what I want if it’s not too expensive, that must suck!

        • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

          When I go to the store it’s sold out no matter what an at Claire’s it’s $15 but I can buy it for $9 at Walmart or Kmart

    • amazing#1d

      Thats probably is, although if I got it again, I would keep it: one for the car and one for my bedroom! Hehe!!

    • lizzie malik

      thats exactly what i was thinking not that they ditched it but who wouldnt want twice the fun and hotness lol

    • erisvey casas

      Yea maybe but they could of given it to a directioner or someone they know that likes 1D

    • erisvey casas

      Yea maybe but they could of given it to a directioner or someone they know that likes 1D

  • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

    • TaibaAli

      Lol

      • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

        Yup yup

  • Samantha Poluka

    If I did receive a 1D album on Christmas I would never take it back to the store because I would probably want it if I didn’t get it already.

  • brendapayne

    I returned myn because i had already got it ofcourse. its not unwanted

    • TaibaAli

      But wouldn’t you want to treasure it cuz I know I deffo would NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!

      • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

        Why would you want the same two CDs?

        • haileyhaileyhailey

          WHY NOT

          • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

            B/c you wouldn’t listen to the same two CDs everyday you could just return it and buy a different 1d merch

          • brendapayne

            Ofcourse im not gonna keep two of the same CD’s and i don’t know anybody who didn’t already have the already so i returned it

          • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

            Ok

          • Sarah

            Yes and if you didn’t wanna have two CDs you could take it and give it to people who want it but they can’t buy it!?

          • brendapayne

            Don’t you think it’s a little rude to give a gift somebody gave you to sombody else ? Besides I already said i didn’t know any directioners who didn’t already have it . So what its $15.00 returned

          • Sarah

            Sorry! But i really didn’t mean what you got!

          • TaibaAli

            Ikr

  • Selena Gomez

    WHY WOULD YOU RETURN IT?? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?? YOU CRAY CRAY?? Unless you have replicas of it then I would understand but people are so…CRAZY!! They could have gave me the stuff instead of returning them lol I’m just kidding :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/joanna.p.torres Joanna Georgiadou

      • Jasmin Mendoza

        • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

          Ya but I save little and bought the tmh album and I got posters from my friends so you should try asking your friends (the ones who don’t like 1d and collect mags) go posters. I dont even have up all night cuz it was sold out and I want to but a other stuf but its tooooooo expensive :( but in the uk they have said its really cheap there

          • Jasmin Mendoza

    I got 1D tickets instead oops

  • http://twitter.com/JillPOfficial Jill Styles(:❣

    I got TMH 3 times by different people.. so I took 2 back :P

  • Emily

    Maybe because they got more than one album as a christmas gift? I mean it’s kind of the perfect gift for a directioner so its possible that more than one person would think of bying the album… :)

    • http://twitter.com/JillPOfficial Jill Styles(:❣

      Exactly.. I got it 3 times XD so I took 1 back to the store. and regifted 1 to a different person

  • Vanity-Marie

    I know the answer! They returned them because they already had the albums, duh! That’s the only explanation

  • eve

    who ever returned them should have thought about the less fortunate and donated them to someone in need

    • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

    • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

      Mine is the opposite I got a horrible secret Santa gift I got a 1d cd not the official ones but like a burned cd ok the bad part was that my friend already new I had the tmh cd and ALL the one direction songs on my laptop and iPod but my other friend said se didn’t care and gave a cd ok the other bad part was she repeated 2 songs and 1 sounded like she recorded it and I gave her a $10 gift and she gave me something I already have.

      • directioner 4eva

        gezz! BEST GIFT EVA! man, what some people do! did she find out about u not liking it?

But I’m over it now but I don’t want her to find out ya. Soo… That’s my story it there is more to it but it would be too much to write. But my friend anne she said she would get me the dare to dream book. But i have to wait another week to go bck to school. What did your friend get you

          • directioner 4eva

  • 1DallTHEway

    People are allergic to awesomeness

  • turtlegirl

    I agree with Anita. I feel like they got returned not cuz people didn’t want them, but because they didn’t want another one

  • 1d_sister

    yeah…
    maybe they already had one, so returned it…
    I wish they had given it t me… I wouldn’t have minded 2!

  • http://twitter.com/EmilyRoseTrz Mrs. StyPayHorLikSon

    maybe the people who returned them already had both albums downloaded on their phones or whatever … #justsayin

    • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

      I have it downloaded on my iPod and laptop and I just wanted Both album so I have something of 1d (I only have tmh so far)

  • aiesha styles

    I have mine on display in my room. Its obvious that the people that returned it got more than one and wanted to used the money to get other 1D merchandise that they dont have……… DUH!!!!!!

  • Nia

    For Christmas I got, take now home which I didn’t return. I also got loads of 1D stuff

  • Crystal

    There’s actually some people who don’t like/hate 1D, maybe their mothers thought wrong…

  • erisvey casas

    I got the take me home cd and album,there like the same disc but I still wanted both and I also got the one direction girl talk game and the 1D liam neckalace for christmas and I was so happy

  • erisvey casas

  • 1Dlovaforevs

    I can’t believe someone would return a One Direction album!!???? I got a 1D album, I would never return a one direction album!! Makes me soooo mad!!

  • http://twitter.com/love1dlovepink sarah

    Maybe the beauty of One Direction’s voices was too much for them to handle….

  • Jari Styles

    Wtf! Some people have BAD taste but others had GREAT taste and just returned U.A.N. cuz they already had it. And I got a 1D sweater, 1D watch, 1D notebook, and 1D wristband

  • http://twitter.com/TreacleRox Leah Neville

    It has to be a mistake because maybe somebody (all those people ) had to like it because it is for christmas anc who doesnt like 1D I was so shocked to reaad that I thought that lady gaga would be in this situation ovisouly not

  • Sally

    WELL THEN. I see some people don’t appreciate true perfection

  • Guest

    maybe because the people who returned them already had their albums and the people who gave it to them didn’t know they already had it

  • Jade Gallego

    1.) Or they already have friends who have the album that they borrowed already and listened to the songs before Christmas. 2.) They downloaded the deluxe album on their iPods, iPhones, tablets, etc. 3.) They just don’t want it super bad like other people.

  • haley

    Well yeah every fan already has their latest album!!!!!d:
