Not a lurker...but wondering who is!
The worst present I've ever gotten was a SPAM gift set...this was just as I was just slowly getting used to eating meat again after 4 years of being a vegetarian...I've probably only ever eaten it a handful of times in my life. It was quite possibly the only thing that has ever been "re-gifted" by me...It was from a boss who gave the same thing to everyone... and it was a common gift in the country I lived in at the time.
Im still here...
as far as the worst gift... I don't really think anything has been that horrible... yeah, some things that Im just like alright... but nothing too bad...
I'm here. Not a lurker and I'm happy to see the board picking up a bit!
hmmm.. I've gotten some bad ones but I think the worst is yet to come. I've got wind that my FIL wants to get all the girls sewing machines for Christmas. None of us sew or even want to...
As far as a bad gift, my step-aunt is addicted to the shopping channel and has tons of money to blow on that stuff. She bought all of us girls really tacky costume jewellery one year, after that these weird scarves that were supposed to be convertible into something else (but nobody could figure out how) and the next year each of us got a cheap looking rain poncho lol. We got a pretty funny picture the year we all got ponchos but none of the gifts are ever worn again.
She's a great aunt and we love her dearly but her gift picking abilities are kind of lacking. We always get a good chuckle though. :)
I got this as a wedding present: http://www.amazon.com/Red-Book-C-G-Jung/dp/0393065677
Carl Jung's Red Book. Its huge--weighs almost 10 lbs and certainly won't fit on my bookshelf at 12" x 18". So freaking random.
zoeygirl1105:Who's here these days?! Any lurkers want to come join the fun? Meanwhile...what's the worst Christmas present you've received or gift in general?
I'm around but tend to only reply when I'm actually on my computer (which is rare) because I hate typing replies on my phone!
ETA: Worst xmas gift was probably a gift certificate to a restaurant 3 hours away that we never expressed any desire to go to. And the value of the GC was less than the cost of two entrees!
Always missing my Mommy (1954-2010) and Daddy (1943-2012)
TTC since 2009 ; BFP 9/13/10 = MC 10/21/10
DX = DOR/POA (AMH=1.1; AFC=4-5) Surprise BFP 8/31/11 while waiting to cycle for IVF Welcomed our little miracle 5/7/12
The worst gift I've gotten was from my sil. She didn't acknowledge the birth of ds1 until February. He was born in oct. She gave us my 1st christmas ornaments. Christmas had already passed, so kinda strange. She also gave him a onesie with a blue bear head coming out of it. It looked like someone cut the head of a teddy bear and sewed to a onesie. Scary.
I'm a lurky loo.
Hmm...worst present would be when I was 14 my grandma (now estranged after my mom FINALLY wrote her off, long story, but just an awful person all around)
gave me a black and white sweatsuit in a size 6X that had butterflies with 3D wings that detached.
Good timing! I lurk here and hang out on the 6-9 month board. Sometimes I want to answer something here but think it would look crazy since there aren't too many here anymore and I have hardly posted. So now I can, thanks!
I'm around, mostly.
DH's dad always sends us completely random stuff...but I can't really think of a good "worst present".
I'm around when I remember to check is board.
Ugly ugly sweater from mil. Just smile and nod....
I'm on sometimes, have posted and like to read.
I can't recall the worst gift, but have one aunt that does send us random things we usually can't or won't ever use - she sends the same random thing to all of the siblings each year. Of course, I always write a nice thank you card and then either find said item a new home or donate.
I'm here. I bump while bfing too. I post sometimes but check in daily.
worst present wasn't actually a present... My ex's mom forgot to get me something so she offered to let me pick something out of her truck of stuff to regift :P
I don't have a worse Christmas gift, but i got a glass lemon when I graduated from college from an aunt I barely knew.
Im still here! I try to check daily, but life has been a little crazier than normal.
I can't really think of an awful gift. I've had plenty of jewelry from my MIL that is just NMS, but nothing terrible.
Worst gift I guess would be when (around 26 years old) my dad who I'm not close with at all bought me a tank top and underwear set. It was very akward.
Worst Christmas present would have to be a windchime made out of sticks and shells with a pottery cat on it from MIL. I only hang it up when she comes to town and during hurricanes in hopes that it will get blown away...so far no such luck. I swear our house could get blown over, and that thing would still be hanging.
