Did anyone in your family get a strange or inappropriate gift for Christmas?

My 2 1/2 year old who wears a 3T got a 6-9 month sized snowsuit! I could maybe understand if this gift came from someone without kids, but my SIL who bought it has 4 kids!

Did anyone in your family get something that was completely off the mark or that made you wonder about the thoughts the giver must have had when choosing it?

  • I got a pair of strawberry flavored edible underwear from my Father In Law. I don't know what he was thinking! My husband is allergic to strawberries.

    AHHHHH!!!! They thought it was hilarious -- I turned 7 shades of red.

  • Wow... I don't think anyone can top the penis candle from your Dad...

    I got a bar of soap from my MIL that was hand made by a friend of hers from her own goat's milk. There is an image of a goat stamped on the front and where apparently she *tried* to make it look like a milk bag... it looks a lot more like a male goat! I laughed very heartily at it, then at myself for my own immaturity.

  • Yes, but that was the point. We do white elephat gift exchage. One is serious gifts, the other is funny, off the wall kind of stuff. It's hilarious! Most of it was pretty reasonable. But I did get a gift card to Steinmart. And it's a lot of money. I don't even shop there, much less *that* much worth! seems like a wasted gift.

  • We got an aboriginal wood carving of a naked man with a spear and a shield. He has a red ribbon tied around his, well, you know where. He's naked. It's the only place to tie a ribbon. It is a "gag" gift from my BIL. It is really strange. We decided that where ever this guy went, he won 2nd prize!
