OMG! No freakin way! I read this post and knew exactly what I was going to respond with… We got the GT100 Express thing too!!!! We asked for no gifts and someone bought us the little grill thing and i just thought “what are we going to do with this?!” It’s still in the box. I feel kind of bad but I’m probably just going to donate it to goodwill. I’m sure someone out there will want to make mini sandwiches more than I do.

We received a frame with our names engraved in it, but my name was spelled incorrectly!

Funny gifts! My weirdest one was a can opener. Just a regular, handheld can opener. Because we had just moved in together, we already had 2 … not sure what this person was thinking.

I went to a wedding where the bride and groom recieved some funny “adult toys”. SAVE THAT STUFF FOR THE BACHELOR/ETTE PARTIES! How embarassing to open that around friends and family!

Ok. I will answer this. =)  I actually have a present now that could go into this category! I got one big huge candle that says “65 hours” and 4 smaller candles … the smaller candles say “quickies” … I was kind of like …. *Blink* *Blink* I opened this the day after my wedding! Hmm … soooo …. 65 hours? LOL

Sex straps as a gift?!  Sheeesh.  You at least give them as a secondary gag gift with a “open alone!” note written as large as possible….

An older camera that still comes with batteries… I was supprised that it didn’t need film. Sold it to my friend for $50 so her kid could play with it 🙂

I am so excited… I hope I get ridiculous and random gifts.  Just not sex straps in front of my family.

One of my best dude friends gave us the “F U, Penguin” book, based on the F U, Penguin blog (ok, weird but also hilarious, so we appreciated it.)

We also did not register because we live in a shoebox and have no room for gifts, but we still recieved an odd coffee table book that featured magnified photographs of things like sperm (not kidding), fetuses, skin cells and hair.

We were both like….ew. Cool, but ew.

A crystal wedding cake topper of a dancing bride and groom.  We got it two weeks after the wedding.  I was like, um what am I supposed to do with this now??

OMG Gloss, THAT IS HILARIOUS!

The worst gift we got was an obvious re-gift from Mr Frenchie’s Step Brother and his wife. It’s obviously 2 gifts they got for their wedding (3 yrs ago) that they never used.

Gloss that is an awesome story.

We didn’t really have 1 dumb or strange gift.  But I think we got at least 5 sets of different mixing bowls.  Just kind of random that it was such a popular gift.

@Mikaela- That flipflop serving dish is hilarious!

I didn’t realize this thread was still going. I’m going to go suggest the Misfit Gift Swap board and see what happens! Don’t forget to vote!

I got this swan soup toureen. On ebay I see its going for about $100-130. Mine has a chip in the beak so I doubt it’s worth that much.
