    @auggiefrog:  What about putting it in the garden? Out the house but still around.

    @Treejewel19:  That was my first thought! And if you really don’t like it, and the plants get a little overgrown, well, oops, you didn’t realize:)

    @auggiefrog:  I mean the person who made it couldn’t even be bothered to spell your name correctly! I’m with your husband.

    Who gives someone a brick as a wedding gift?

    I understand it’s supposed to be some sort of decorative keepsake but it’s still a brick. With your name misspelled. From someone you’re not even that close to.

    Toss it. 🙂

    Normally I’m cool with donating pretty much anything I don’t want, but it’s tricky since it’s personalized. HOWEVER, I’d be annoyed if they spelled my name wrong. I say throw it out.

    @auggiefrog:  As someone who is artsy and creative, I know how to use spell check.

    Toss it!

    I vote for outside too.  I hate throwing away things people give me.  I got a really PINK and flowery comforter )off registry gift) that will never go on my bed.  I just store it in my dd’s closet.  She loves pink and may like that one day so I am hanging on to it.  If she doesn’t like it either, I will donate it.
