Are you close with this person?

This happened to my friend where they were actually given a PRICE estimate for the bride’s bachelorette present (she was a BM) but the BM presents were like 5 dollars…

Maybe she thought it was a really awesome picture frame???

I got a set of three GIANT heavy wood candlestick things from an older family member. My first reaction was WTF??? But then I put them in my non-working fireplace and they’ve grown on me. I also know exactly what I’ll grab if I hear an intruder…

We also received a bottle of soda stream syrup without a card. I thought it came from the friend who bought the soda stream, but they said no. So I dunno… But I still felt guilty for not sending a thank you card!

Pretty much everybody on my side of the guest list gave us weird stuff.

Not super strange but I ended up getting the 8 napkin rings off our registry but none of the napkins…we didn’t have any other cloth napkins at the time so they were kinda pointless for a while (through NO fault of the gift giver!) We just kind of laughed about it!

Given what you have said about her in your previous post, maybe this is not totally unexpected from this girl.

My husband got a weird Christmas present from my sister.

It was a kid’s book that had clearly been read. Super weird.

Dh’s “closest” cousin got us 4 spoons. I’m sure she dislikes me for some reason. I promised Dh that she will also receive a similar gift when it’s her turn. I can’t wait to return the favor

@FleeSircus:  sorry about the crappy gift. But, more importantly, what does a Tiffany themed kitchen look like???

@FleeSircus:  My FMIL got me a candy bar for Christmas. I dont even eat chocolate.

My step mom once got me a 4 pack of chapstick from the dollar store. She even left the sticker on it. I hate her at the time though, and she knew it, so thats probably why.

Oh, another story about my step mom. I bought her and my dad a picture frame for Christmas one year. It wasnt anything special, but I was only 19 and had no money. I recently went to visit them at their place in Kansas. Tons of pictures everywhere, but I didnt see the frame I got them. Then we went to her sisters house… and I saw the picture frame there. I guess she regifted it? Idk, I didnt ask. 😛

My ex’s mom was always giving me pink cookware. I don’t cook. My ex LOVED to cook. Yet at the cookware was pink….and for me…. I got the (correct) feeling she didn’t like me.

Is it at least a nice dove picture frame? Hahaha, there’s a sentence I never thought I’d type.

I’m imagining something like this. Which I actually love, so I hope its something like this.

Or maybe this.
