Now going in the other direction, what is the worst present that you ever got?

I haven't had too many really awful presents but the one that comes to mind is a blouse dh bought me,  It was horrible  a kind of maroonish color with a humongous big bow.  I am more of a  plain blouse fancier and have to admit I never ever wore that thing and he must have got the message, as he no longer tries to buy me clothes for a gift unless he takes dd with him.

I understand.  I prefer things to be plain solid colors.  I needed a new set of flannel sheets so I went out and bought myself some.  I was going to give them to myself for Christmas.  Unfortunately my son and daughter in law got me the most awful sheets that had peace symbols all over them.  My daughter in law said that she just knew I wanted them because I looked longingly at them all the time.  What it was is that I looked at them and thought gross.

My husband doesn't buy me clothes either for gifts unless I am very specific about what I want.  I would have to tell him the store, size, colour of a garment.

Hmm...Well I had a close family member that was all about fuel perks. I love fuel perks when I can use them buying gift cards, but I would never buy someone one  just to get fuel perks if they didn't like it. It was for somewhere I would never eat. The same year she got our son one for somewhere he would never shop. Otherwise I don't think I ever got a bad present because the thought would have been into it, and nothing else comes to mind LOL.

Depends on what kind of popcorn was in it.  Caramel popcorn would be ok.  Stale popcorn is not.
