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?

That thing is cool! We got similar reactions when I opened mine lol. SIL was like "Uhh mom, a drying rack?! Seriously?!" It's not like it was the only thing I got though lol.

Quoting MamaKarrot:

lol I loved my rack for cloth diapers as well, so I totally get that.

One year I got MIL this drying rack octopus thing from ikea:

She raved about mine for so long that I got one for her.  She was thrilled when she opened it, but everyone else in the room was like "huh?" 

Quoting MadHatter89:

I got one of those wooden clothes drying racks that folds up from my MIL. What is even weirder probably is that I was legit excited about it. I couldn't find one, and needed it for cloth diapers! I love practical gifts lol.

It's not weird or wacky, but my mom and grandma always buy me scented soaps, bath soaps, perfumes and powders from avon! I can't wear or use any of it, ever because I will break out horribly. I tell my mom all the time, but I usually get it every Christmas and Birthday!

I never got a bad present, but my husband got a pack of cigarettes and a revolver handgun, with ammo, from his uncles one Christmas. He was seven.

I'm really into cooking, and EVERY year, my mil gives me a fondue set. How many of those could a girl possibly need? I've never even used any of them. I wonder if I'll get #6 this year. My DH says it is weird too.
