Both of those gifts are AWESOME (imo).  I’ll have to remember to put the GT101 on the registry if it’s ever made, bf and I have wanted one for a while.

I have to admit, I don’t know what I would do with a butter curler.

So funny!! I am crossing my fingers that we don’t get any crazy ones like that!

I actually love the butter curler.

I recieved a peacock clothing hanger.. it wasn’t a terrible gift, just a little odd.

I’m a kitchen gadget freak and love that butter curler. I think we should start a board category for unwanted wedding gift exchange. Haha. Like the “Island of Misfit Toys” in the Christmas movie.

the worm compost bin we got was sort of strange… but now I’m totally in love with it!

That’s super-tempting.  I don’t know where I’d put it or what I’d do with it, though.  We’re still unpacking after moving in July…  Thanks for the offer!

@eloping – What would we call it? If we come up with a name, I’ll suggest it!

Perhaps “Home for Lonely Gifts”?

Or “Puce-colored napkins match *what*?” (no offence to puce, it was just a tip-of-the-tongue color)

A bath and body works lotion/soap/scrub/massage oil set.

Darling Husband opened it up and said, "ummm….i think this one’s for you"

It was during the semi-annual sale, too, so I know what she spent on it. Seriously, you couldn’t have gotten us a $20 gift off our registry instead of lotion? It’s funny…i just don’t think she knew better

How about something along the lines of “Wedding Gift Swop-Meet”?
I think it’s an awesome thing to do.

I really like the idea of calling a gift swap “the Home for Lonely Gifts” or else “Home for Misfit Gifts” – because they literally are mis-fit to the recipient!

This is a great idea ~ I hope it takes off!
