From my godfather (who likes a good joke) one year gave me as part of my present a belly button brush, I never used it and lost it lol. Then another year he gave me a belly dancing kit.

Yesterday I got a 2012 calendar from my “secret Santa.” 

Btw, there was a $25 budget. There was a weird design on the front but I thought “Oh well, I guess I’ll just use it for the next few days.” WRONG. It turns out it was a Mayan themed calendar so it ended on December 21…4 days before the Christmas party where I received it. Completely random, thoughtless and useless. I dare someone to top it.

Fiance and I laughed about it all the way home. Then this morning (Dec. 26) he comes to wake me up with a cup of coffee and whispers “Just in case you were wondering, we still have a completely useless Mayan calendar in the kitchen.” Hehe! What a cutie!

Last year, my boyfriend (now fiance)’s mom got me a cookbook. Although I can take a hint, it’s still sitting in the plastic to this day!

We got a framed paint-by-number of a creepy clown from a friend of my husband’s who loves to give totally random, goofy gifts. (For a comparison example: for Christmas she just gave us a Twilight Eclipse board game (me) and a porcelain cat (to Darling Husband, who is allergic to and pretty much detests cats.) We gave her a DVD of the “Sonny & Cher Christmas Special” in the same spirit. Tongue Out

I can’t think of anything useless or random, but I did get a $10 gift card to Dunkin’ Donuts from my brother this year. I work at Starbucks. The whole family stopped what they were doing to watch me open it…and they all laughed hysterically! They said he’d been saying he was going to do that for the past 2 years…funny kid!

One of my friends as a gag gift, gave me and my Fiance a Christmas/ engagement “Sex for Seniors” how-to manual!  lol I’m an older Bee- but not quite there yet!  Was incredibly funny though – it was a parody not an actual self help book 🙂 My uncle (who is a senior) was looking through it too laughing his ass off

We do a white elephant gift exchange every year, and the same copy of the first Twilight book makes an appearance every year! We are thinking that we should log who wins in every year in the back of the front cover.
