Another Bad Gift

I thought the Waterford picture frame with hearts was the worst wedding gift we were going to receive, but it's been topped.  We have now received a set of Irish coffee mugs with Dan's last name and a shamrock engraved on them.  First of all, I didn't change my name.  Second of all, neither of us drink coffee, tea, or any sort of warm drink.  So what in the world are we going to do with them?  At least with the frame we could return it, but since these are engraved we're stuck with them.  Why do people feel the need to be creative?

    Hm... if it's from someone you're not that close with you could re-gift them to one of Dan's family members for xmas. Otherwise it looks like they're going to the back of the cupboard/closet. I hate how people assume you're automatically taking your husband's name. Someone bought us a fairly large painting. FIL is supposed to bring it to us b/c it's in another country, but that's a pretty bold gift to give IMO.

  • Does he have any family that would want them? Not a re-gift so much as a "we won't use these and want you to have them" gift?

  • Unfortunately the gift is from his aunt.  I suggested giving them to his parents since they actually drink Irish coffee, but Dan didn't think that was such a good idea since his aunt is over at their house all the time.

    That sucks.

  • hahahaha now see, I think that would be a great gift for us.

  • Lmao! Do you really not drink coffee though? I would die without it.

  • Nope, no coffee, no tea.  I can't stand the taste of either one.  Dan likes iced coffee on occasion, but hates regular coffee.  Every once in a while I'll try his iced coffee because it looks like chocolate milk and I'm immediately grossed out and grabbing anything I can shove into my mouth to get rid of the taste.  I never learn my lesson.

    LOL Yeah.

    You could plant little plants in them... Do you have a kitchen windowsill that you could turn into a baby herb garden?
