My grandma got me two big Tupperware bowls. They weren't horrible, just not what I was hoping for. She usually does well

One grandmother gives all her grandkids $50. The other is a hit and miss. One year we got dish towels because she heard me say something to my mom about needing some at thanksgiving. One yr I got a rice cooker and I still use it. Another year I got a ceramic pie dish. Nice but haven't used it yet. Still in my china cabinet. Last yr I got a buffet type stove burner. Haven't had an occasion I needed to use it. Maybe if my stove goes out or for a party. Lol

Dead flowers.

When I was younger all of my aunts and uncles would exchange names so they only bought for 1-2 kids rather than all of us (12 kids). While all of my cousins were enjoying new barbies, remote control cars and cool sweatshirts, I had to graciously accept a bunch of dead flowers. I think my aunt thought she had dried them but they all crumbled within a few days.

If you're still scrambling for the perfect gift for a 10 year old girl, maybe don't give her dead flowers...

Wow that's horrible. After the fact, did your mom say anything to you?

I can't think of a really bad one.

Not too much. We all kinda joked about it on the car ride home. It was a good lesson, I suppose. Lol.
