Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

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?

When I was a dog groomer I got a TPN of weird gifts from clients. I got used lipstick from one and the weirdest was I got underware from another client. She was so proud of her gift too. Who buys their dog groomer undies????

My cheapskate ex husband gave me the free stuff animal that came with a purchase from a store, pretending that he'd bought it and picked it out himself. He also "gave" me a turkey roasting pan that my mom sent him the money to buy FROM HER, but he bought it and took credit for it. Both my mom and I were furious when we found out.

My family ultimately gets me makeup or bath stuff. I don't really use makeup. So basically, you stink & put on some makeup.

My brother once gave me a light up reindeer tshirt for Christmas in XXL. I wore an XSmall at the time. He was 12, so my mom should have at least helped with the size! The shirt was awful too.
