@ForeverBirds:  so, my bday was Monday and my mom admitted she sorta didn’t get me anything for Xmas haha. But, she did put an electric razor and electric toothbrush in my stocking. at first I was like what?! Now, after my shower, my legs are like crazy smooth so yay for the razor. My mother in law is all about gifting Interesting gifts. Usually she givea me jewlery I only wear for the holidays around her… I’m curious about this year.

About the bag situation… im sorry 🙁 my Dad gifted me a purse, and it’s not really my style, but after carrying it around today, it’s growing on me. Maybe just try it out, and if you really hate it then yeah try to save up for something more practical. next year tell them you appreciate it, but maybe they should run a gift like that by you because you’re particular about your accessories?

One Christmas my mum got us crocheted neck warmers… they were ugly as sin and went in the bin as soon as we got home. That was pretty ‘wtf’. 


She’s improved a lot since then luckily!

I got a lot of really thoughtful gifts, my FSIL got me a board game that I used to play with my grandmother when I was growing up and nearly brought me to tears as I was reminiscing. But my Future In Laws, got me a t-shirt that was a size too small and I was like- really?

@ForeverBirds:  I’ll find out tonight what my godfather gave me. It’s always…. interesting. The first year after he and my godmother divorced he got me a fake gold egg on a pedestal with jewels and stuff. It opened up and inside there was a wreath-shaped frame that spun around while music played. The frame was about .5 inches wide. So weird. Another year he got me a fake kitten. It looks and feels like a real kitten, curled up in a basket and has a motor inside that makes it look like the kitten is breathing. SO CREEPY. He got it because I had a cat. I HAD a REAL cat. Why on earth would I want a fake one? Did I mention I was 30 that year?

@ForeverBirds:  Maybe they misunderstood what you wanted.

SO’s dad’s wife has gotten me some interesting ones…

A doll scarf… a gold lemme “wrap”… a christian book about living (I’m not christian, and yes she is aware)… a jacket that must have been from the 80s, puffy sleeves and all, and did I mention it wouldn’t fit my chest.

My godparents always get us something useless and clearly without thought of us. One year they gave us each a $50 gift card to a store that was a 4 hour drive out of town… we ended up having to sell them off to someone else for half of their value as we could never use them.

This year we each got a $50 gift certificate to a high end spa where $50 gets you nothing. Since it’d cost us at least $40 extra to get anything done and we have no interest in going anyways we are again trying to sell/trade them for something we can use. Along with this we also got foul smelling bath salts when she knows from when we were younger that we cannot take a bath with any kind of chemicals as we easity get an uti… so again useless to us.

@ForeverBirds:  Who told you it was bought on clearance?  You should try anyway.
