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

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?

One mothers day my first husband got me a mop.  Yeah, he's an ex now.  In his defense, I needed a new one, but seriously?

One year my ex gave me doilies... like what little old ladies put on their tables.  I was pretty offended that he didn't know my taste and we'd been married two years at that point.

 This is no joke, lol. I used to collect pig knick knacks for my kitchen so my mother thought it would be hilarious if she bought petrified poop in the shape of a pig. Yep, you read that right. I got shit as a gift. I almost wish I still had it so I could snap a picture for you.

OP - Wow that is very Rude. 

Arwyn-  Your Ex is really insensitive.

I got a half melted candle. My grandmas best friend was kooky but very loving.
