Ok – I have one that tops the charts…

We got a bag of popcorn, chocolate, 2 boxes of garlic crackers and a 2 foot long summer sausage all put into a storage bin wrapped in a towel. Yes, a towel.

We had no idea what this was all about until we were rereading cards and found a note on the backside that told my husband that this would take care of his appetite during the honeymoon…

This thread has me laughing out loud.

Here goes:  a picture of me and my husband from 3 years ago (my bra is showing in the picture), blown up and mounted on a painting type board, framed in a weird decorative gold frame.  with our names and date of our wedding scrawled in yellow across the bottom.  I should feel lucky though.  These relatives gave my cousin and her husband a vibrator for their wedding.

you are all hilarious!  sex straps, giant blown up pics, vibrators, sausages, wow.  We got a can opener that was billed as “the best canopener EVER” but it really frightens our cats, takes a long time to open cans, and is SUPER loud!  I think it’s hilarious.  If we ever manage to have a second home some day, that’s where this will go.

Maybe it’s the best can opener EVER because the cats don’t come running whenever you open a can of soup…

I enjoy reading about random, unsolicited gifts.  They have me laughing out loud!  What a great post!

We returned home from our honeymoon to find a house full of gifts including a HOT DOG STEAMER!

So how many hot dogs do you need to eat to justify the cost of a hot dog steamer?

@Sapphire – I can’t imagine eating enough!

It’s too early for us to have gotten gifts yet, but I was at a friend of mine’s shower and someone who couldn’t be there sent her this obscene cupless fishnet bodystocking since the theme of the shower was “lingerie.” 

Everyone else gave her cute nighties and then she got this horrible thing:

NOT WORK SAFE!!!!! http://store.mysweetmystique.com/catalog/1616.jpg

Fortunately she thought it was hilarious, it had arrived before the shower so we all had lots of fun laughing at the story.

lol @ the body stocking, and OMG cutest hot dog steamer ever, but totally unnecessary! 🙂

I can’t wait to see what smorgasbord we’ll get!

An antique Schlitz beer sign which, oddly enough, we love.  Also a complete set of massage oils, body paint, etc from his very religious cousin.  Opened the day after in front of the family, nice!

I was actually really grateful for all of our gifts, but I’d have to say the ugliest thing we got were some cheesy western themed ceramic salt and pepper shakers.  We haven’t talked about them since we opened them, but I bet my husband actually likes them.  LOL.  We got some other really nice grinders that’ll work better.

These are hilarious! Thankfully we didn’t get anything weird or out of the ordinary.

This thread is hilarious! So far, ours is a toss up between two things. Mother in Law got us a Tide Buzz (?) that’s an ultrasonic stain remover. Sounds cool, but it’s really just another gadget that will be outdated in 2 years. Which of course, we didn’t register for. 

The next gift isn’t really dumb or strange–just frustrating. Because I’m in Seminary, when I graduated from college, people gave me a TON of crosses. Seriously, our house has 4 crosses JUST IN THE LIVING ROOM! Last weekend, what do we get…another cross. I’m running out of ideas with what to do with these things! Plus, they never come with a gift receipt, because who would exchange a cross???

It’s getting embarrassing whenever we have Jewish friends over. :-/
