Mother-In-Law gave us a giant wine rack which is “custom made” according to her but was made years before we even met each other which meens someone hated it and didnt buy it and there is a good reason no one would buy it. Oh also it did not come with any wine just the awful huge wine rack. If it came with wine atleast I could have drank till it became pretty. Everyone who knows us better told them it was a horrible gift but they just wouldnt listen. I cant wait to sell said giant wine rack which does not fit in our appartment and wont fit in our lifestyle for years to come. If your going to buy something for wine buy it off my registry or a mini wine fridge and atleast give 1 bottle of wine with it common.

@EastMeetsBarn: That is a fantastic terrible candle holder. Well done, bridesmaid and mom!
I love the terrible presents that have jokes attached to them, they’re so much more awesome than just being terrible presents.
A note about the etiquette book – we bought one for ourselves and we gave one to my brother and his fiancee for Christmas. Naturally we put in a disclaimer that we didn’t think they were uncouth, we just found it helpful when wedding planning and whatnot! Sounds like you got an old one @marujita: but honestly I find it handy to have.

@pigzfly: ironically, we are enjoying the book and find it quite interesting to read! haha! But I did find it odd that someone would wrap that as a gift with no card… oh well

DH’s great uncle makes things out of wood and hand forged iron. He owns an anvil and everything. My inlaws have a paper towel holder, napkin holder, and utensil basket in this “style”. We got a HUGE note holder. Seriously, this thing has to be 12x12x15. It is a giant set of fireplace style tongs, and is made to put a note in. No way will this ever be on my wall! We opened gifts in front of our parents, and my Mother-In-Law was like “that will be so perfect in your house!” I have no clue where it is now.

We got a metal wine holder with a cork bottom that had some random symbols on it (like chess or something), and this came with a wine stopper that had a horse head on it. We are neither into chess or horses so I’m going to chalk this one up as a regift, lol

@Meowkers: OMG. My Father-In-Law made us this absolutely stunning dining room table. That seats TEN. Now we are shopping for a house and have to find a place with a dining room large enough.

We haven’t gotten married yet, but at my bridal shower one of my grandmother’s got me a hand painted wooden sleeping angel. It’s probably 12-15 inches long. She said as soon as she saw it she thought of me and just had to buy it. She bought it when I was EIGHT years old. I don’t know if she just forgot about it until recently or just really wanted to wait until I got married to give it to me, but now I have it..and It’s there.. In my apartment.. Just.. yeah. I don’t know what to do with it.
