What's the weidest or wackiest holiday gift you've ever received?

Posted by   + Show Post

So I absolutely believe that it's the thought that counts ...but I have to admit, some gift choices totally give me pause. One year, my mother in law got me cooking lessons. The message was loud and clear -- she hated my cooking. My best friend once got a case of baby wipes from a boyfriend -- and she doesn't even have kids! He thought they would be handy for wiping up messes.  Anyone else ever get a gift that made them think --what the heck?

Ok I can see a couple of these as not so great but most others people got you a gift..often sounds like they thought you would like it..gifts are not mandatory and people I often seem ungrateful on here

Hubby and I had been married about 2 years, I told him he could buy me some nice panties or some type of nice nightgown. He bought me panties OMG- - hugh's huge granny panties I wore a size small or 5 ....Im nor sure what he was thinking, he told me he didn't know how to buy women's underware! We laughed so hard! Not weird just funny!

Cottonelle wipes from my mother-in-law. That's all I got from her! Random and hilarious! No, it wasn't supposed to be a joke!

I had a little bit of frustration when I had a computer that was running slow. I made an off hand comment about it. Based on that, my dh gave me memory sticks for my computer. O.0

I'm not a tech savoy person at all! I know he meant well, but he had bought me something sparkling the year before (if you know what I mean) and I was hoping for something similar. He basically did super great that previous year and sort of set the bar high for following years. LOL.

I just told him that I realized he meant well, and if it would be possible to pick out something else. He was cool about it, and he went with me and we went shopping for clothes. :)
