worst gift

anyone get anything terrible, ridiculous etc?

 

Re: worst gift

  • DH trying to be funny, wrapped a box of tissues. AND a gift that he gave me last year that I never used.
  • I got batteries from my son...so I can use the breast pump at work.
  • my brother sent me a mini breakfast food gift basket. Really....how impersonal can someone get? Does he think of me and think "english muffins"?

  • Haven't seen my MIL yet so the worst gift is yet to come.

  • no real clunkers this year. a few articles of clothing that aren't really my style, but nothing terrible.
  • this isn't terrible, but kinda funny. I bought myself a new  grey sweater last Wednesday to wear Christmas eve.

    DH got me the same exact one in black. He said when he saw me bring it home he was like rats, but decided to let me unwrap it anyway.

    at least he knows my taste. I think I m going to keep both.

    Or is it weird to have two of the exact same thing in different colors?

  • i think i am in the clear - everything was pretty good, even the Chia herb garden!

    JIH: I have many duplicates of things that I like.  keep both sweaters.

  • JenD - Where have you been??

    JIH - I have dups as well. 

  • I can't complain, but I'll complain for hubs.

    His mom bought him this weather thing, part of it has to be outside, and the other part inside.  It tells you the current weather - temp, and including if it's raining (which you would see by looking at the window anyway). Overall, we all got a good laugh out of it because of the lameness factor.

  • to go coffee mugs- not a bad gift but seriously thoughtless coming from the people who got it for us.

  • my mom bought P a shirt from american apparel that says "BUTT" which is a gay porno mag.... yeah.
  • I told DH I needed new underwear so he went out and bought me the ones I liked, except he bought the full briefs and high cut versions, so now I have the hugest and most god-awful granny panties I've ever seen!!  They are going back stat.

    My MIL did a 4 generations photo of my FIL's side of the family, including our wedding picture.  It was a nice gesture and the frame on it is decent, but hanging pictures of H's dead relatives is just weird and not our style. 

  • My dad gave dh and I a globe.  Not even a large globe, but a desk-top globe.  That was it.  A globe.   Wtf?  (I should preface this by saying my Dad sucks at Christmas, and one time when I was 15 he gave me a bicycle helmet).
