oh i remember this ugly ornamental plate we got from some in-laws.  it was bad.  we took pictures with it making ugly faces.  it was funny.

In my family, those are the gifts that keep on giving.  Someone will get one, we'll all laugh and make fun of it, then it'll lie dormant for years.  One day, you're cleaning out a closet or crawlspace and find it, and laugh all over again.  Then, wrap it up and gift it to your mom, just so she can laugh all over again, too.  We have a small handful of fugly gifts that have been passed back and forth over the years.

We're nowhere near that organized about it, lol.  A handful of the stuff comes from Dad's VFW's annual Chinese Auction.  Mom's friend doesn't necessarily pay attention to what's going on around her all the time, so we've been known to buy extra tickets, put them all in for the fugliest thing we can find, then slip the stubs in with hers while she's not looking.  She gets all sorts of excited because she's won something, only to find out that it's one of those heinous octopus crocheted toilet paper covers.  I got that one back as a wedding gift.

One of my friends has what she calls the [email protected] drawer. It is where she puts all of the bad presents she gets, and then when it is time to go to a party or qift exchange she pulls one out and stick it in a gift bag. It is a great idea and I need to start doing this myself. My guys dad gives us boxes full of junk we will never use at christmas!

I got a good one, my cousin always knew that I was a skull lover (like statues and stuff) well one xmas she decided to buy me a skull bandana, it looked something like this now it would have been ok, if it wasnt for girls,

My wife was once given one of those organizer book things that was worth about 5 bucks and the person who gave it probably had gotten for free somewhere. So the wife tries to return it to Wal-Mart, back when I think they had a pretty open refund policy. The clerk scans it and the upc comes up a $30 toaster. The clerk couldn't explain it, so she just said "Oh well, thats what it scans as..." and gave us the credit. Funny stuff. Best gift that particular person had ever given us...

My guys dad buys everyone way too much and for the most part he sticks to the lists my guy gives him. He buys things like a years worth of the toiletries we use like our brand of deoderant, soap, toothpaste. It is nice to not have to buy those things throughout the year and he sticks to what we use anyway...

but he also buys strange gifts for us all as well. His sister and I (30 and 24 years old) both got bratz dolls, and chia pets last year. I have no idea what to do with those things.

Bratz Dolls?  Weird.  I had an Uncle that gave me Strawberry Shortcake dolls right up until I was in college.  I don't think  my sister or I ever matured past 9 as far as he was concerned.

Last year my nan gave me and my brother a gift toiletry pack each that they had put together....not nice smelling soaps though but, deoderant, shop brand shower gel and shampoo, a pack of razors, cotton buds(?!), cotton wool, mouthwash and a toothbrush. Each thing was individually wrapped and our parents did'nt know where to look when we were each opening our presents. :)

 

Don't know what she was trying to say about us?! Lol!
