This is such a great topic--I love reading all the strange gifts people have received and have to wonder what people are thinking when they give them!!

moydear77, I completely understand where you are coming from.
My mother-in-law gave my husband (her son) and my 3 year old son the same thing she has given us every Christmas & for allof our birthdays - NOTHING!
Now, I don't need any more useless cr*p, but a card would be nice, especially for my son.
Funny thing is, she gives expensive gifts to some of her children & their families, but not others!
How can a mom play favorites?!?!
Thanks for letting me vent!

My mom does this!!!!!!!! She gave my littlest sister (24 years old) TWO Louis Vitton purses, but my sister didn't like them and you can't take them back, so my mom bought her a Coach purse ALSO.

I got a $150.00 gift certificate to Belk's (a dept store), which is nice and generous, but it's NOT 3 EXPENSIVE purses. And, I really can't complain because she gave another one of my little sisters (I have 3 altogether) a $24.96 box of dishes from Walmart.

What the (&%#( ?

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! icon_mad.gif

My aunt sent me 2 pieces of awful jewelry. One is a broach (sp?) from a cruise she went on in barbados. It is hand made of fish scales and is a neon yellow. OMG yick. And a pair of cheap silver loop earrings that way a ton! Plus I don't wear earrings. Oh well I guess it is the thought that counts. At least I didn't get soap like my BIL. LOL

The worst thing I got this year was a violin shaped bottle of flavored olive oil . . . .but the giver also gave me a $100 dollar bill . . . which I promptly used to pay for my DH's surprise birthday dinner at a local restaurant! Easy come . . . easy go!!

A Buddha eye magnet for my refrigerator. My brother spent a month in and around Kathmandu this fall, actually it is rather interesting except I have a wood front on my refrigerator and stainless steel on every other appliance surface. There is absolutely no place in my kitchen to stick it.

derby, we call that the little sister syndrome! Talk to any number of people and I'm sure they will tell you story after story of how the youngest in their family usually seems to be "the favorite". It may be because they're the baby of the family. It may be because by the time the youngest was a teenager, the older siblings had moved out, the parents had more money and could "spoil" the baby a little more. Who knows? detective.gif All I know for sure is that it happens.

And not just at Christmas. icon_wink.gif

my birthday is in november so i recently was gifted with amazing things by my husband...a very expensive kitchen mixer, a digital camera .... so for christmas i didnt want to make a big deal of it so i didnt really know what to say when he asked me what i wanted. boy did i ask for it....he gave me COASTERS! yes, thats right, coasters. i know it sounds snobby , but i was really mad. he just gave me a few nick nacky things and coasters. (oh and slippers like one person said, but i actually DID WANT them! LOL!) i couldnt help but think "doesnt he know what my new absolute favorite hobby is???"

wait , come to think of it, i suppose he did get me new cake supply toys...i could turn them things upside down use them for mini cake pedestals! thumbs_up.gif

The blanket the MIL gave was most likely free to her. I know my company gives things like that for Xmas.

Every year my husband and I spend Xmas at the neighbors house. It is a blast watching their family exchange gifts. They are such stupid gifts and everyone has to put on an act that they like it.

It's only my husband, two married children and a grandson. We buy for the Grandson. I told my kids last year that we shouldn't exchange gifts anymore. I could give you a long list of things that were never used but the giver usually goes into debt to get it. My kids haven't figured it out yet, but we make it up through the year.

My son needed a new kitchen floor we took him to the store and told him to pick out what kind of floor he wanted and paid for it, my daughter needed bedding and wall hangings for a bedroom, I had her pick it out and bought it for her.

I just couldn't stand thinking the kids are making ends meet and they have to put gifts on their charge. And to top it off when we want something we buy it so there's nothing for them to get. They were very happy and the don't exchanged with each other anymore.

Gift certificates are the worse. I didn't take the time to find out what I could get you, or take the time to shop for you, so here's a gift certificate. The funniest was when I was living at home. My mother would give her Mother-in-law $10 in a card and the Mother-in-law would give her $10 in a card.

I cannot complain about my gifts this year. However ... a couple of years back I was desperately trying to lose the 60lbs I had gained with my son's pregnancy (gestational diabetes (sp?)). Anyway I was super self conscious about my weight I had never gained that much weight. I went from a 115 to 175. Everyone knew I was extremely depressed by the weight gain. And I was trying really hard to lose it but it sure wasn't going anyway.

Well, my darling icon_evil.gif BIL and SIL (on hubby's side) decide to give me a medicine ball for xmas. If it wasn't bad enough that they gave me this stupid gift BIL made it appoint to 'show' me the proper way to use it in front of the entire family and guest! icon_cry.gificon_redface.gificon_mad.gif is exactly how I felt. Needless to say I was mortified and I just wanted to crawl under a rock. Everyone was shocked they thought it was truly disrespectful!

I ended up selling it at garage sale for $1 (brand new, never opened).

Hmmm I guess mine could have been worse, and I could have got nothing, but the in-laws gave both DH and I deodorant, toothpaste, and a toothbrush as three of our christmas gifts...which I promptly returned to Walmart. What's up w/ giving personal hygiene stuff for a present?!

I will give father-in-law some exlax, a plunger and toilet brush and for mother-in-law some fiber caplets, shampoo and hair dye icon_twisted.gif

They are always being cheap. I would rather get one gift that I have asked for, then receive alot of stuff that I will never use, or will return.

What's the point of asking for a list if you don't plan to buy anything off it anyways? icon_cool.gif
