…it’s GOT to be the season of RECEIVING for somebody, right?
Which makes me curious. What is the WORST gift you’ve ever received? What distinguished it as such? I’m not talking about gag gifts or "gifts" you ended up with at a White Elephant or Chinese Gift exchange…something you received that the giver gave you in all seriousness. The present, upon opening it, you had to scramble to find the words to voice your appreciation, when inside your brain was screaming WHAT-THE-HECK-AM-I- GONNA-DO-WITH-THIS???!
Tell me your stories–either leave a comment here or blog it (I think it’d be a fun post) and let me know by linking to Mr. Linky below (all you have to do is type your name in the first window and post URL in the second). Photographs would be a bonus (but I bet you don’t still have it unless it’s recent 😉 ).
I’ll think on mine and get back with ya…I can’t wait to hear your stories!
Because I made the mistake of laughing at hers while visiting Swampy one year, NLM bought me “MR. MANLY MAN” … that stuffed little man that spews forth all these ‘manly’ sayings when you squeeze his tummy. Yea, baby…now that’s a romantic gift every woman wants from her man.
A stuffed chicken with a nest and plastic eggs. My mother thought I could use it to decorate my kitchen. When we realized we were short a present in the midst of a family gathering, she pulled out another one to give to the poor presentless person.
When I got married I worked at this office that leased medical equipment (nasty job, nasty boss) and the boss asked the other two employees if they wanted to go in on a wedding gift for me.
He presented me with a cast iron bird feeder–exactly what every newlywed couple would want but the funniest part was that when the other two employees saw it they were ticked because they’d contributed to something so stupid. And it looked suspiciously re-gifted.
NL, that doll cracks me up, whatareyoutalkin”bout??
Hulagirl, now THAT made me giggle out loud! Not a good visual.
Michelle, ahhhh, the re-gift… So did you chunk it or pass it on?
My company built a whole website this holiday called the Bad Gift Emporium: http://badgiftemporium.com/
There are a few items from me on there.
