I spent a lot of time figuring out what to get my Future Sister-In-Law, and Future Brother-In-Law. I got her a nice cookbook with rave reviews, and him a guitar center gift card. They got us two pieces of very cheap art. I don’t really like either of them at least Fiance likes one of them. They kind of look like something they bought for themselves and regifted to us.

We got three totally strange things. I dog brush that connects to a vaccum cleaner for dogs who shed… I have two shih tzu who dont shed and we dont have the vaccum clear that goes with the brush… We got an 10×12 picture and picture frame of DHs little cousin… O we also got this weird fish bowl thing that is a wooden fish stand with a bowl that pops out of the fish…

Ha that reminds me, last year my Future Mother-In-Law got us two champange glasses….we don’t drink champange and Future Brother-In-Law got as a HUGE bottle of that flower wine stuff… we don’t drink wine. Needless to say it got poured down the drain.

well i got bed sheets that don’t fit our bed. its not a funny one, but i am not sure what to do with them. one year my mom got me a CD of all the hits from the year i was born – needless to say, i don’t know any of the songs since i wasn’t really into different music artists at the wee age of birth to one year.

I can’t stop laughing. This is too much. I want to ask people “what the hell were you thinking?!”

I got a fruit cake from SO’s grandparents…but so did every female grandchild so it’s nice to know that they view me as one of their own so it’s not too bad. It will just accidently end up in the trash.

I have to say that I didn’t get any bad presents this year! My sister intentionally tried to get me a gag gift, but I actually like it! Funky colored socks 🙂

I seriously can’t stop laughing at this…! “mother, grandmother, LOVE, Children” … How random and hilarious. Hahahaaahahaa
This sounds like a gift I’d get a friend as a joke or something.
Edit: As I keep reading through the thread, all of these are really really making me crack up. Thanks for the laughs. haha

I got this really bizarre looking necklace from my Mother-In-Law… but, she is so sweet and I know it was well-meant… it was just nothing I’d EVER wear.

ugh I’m SO bummed over my christmas gifts this year…. My parents didn’t give me anything, just money, so all I had to unwrap was my DH’s crappy, crappy presents. I’m embarassed I had to unwrap presents in front of my family even.
1. He homemade a first christmas ornament. Honestly it’s not the worst gift ever, but I so had my heart set on the cute Hallmark ones… and he’s not good at painting.
2. prunes. So I like prunes a lot, but I have to stop myself after 2 or 3 because I get the runs. (TMI I know). So why would DH give these to me for Christmas?!!!
3. We had returned a broken wedding present and got a gift card for it (space is tight)… he bought it again with the gift card and wrapped it up like it was a new present!! wtf. My friend got it for me, not him!
And that’s it. He spent a total of $20 (maybe) and no thought. Honestly I’m about to give up on his gifts. I don’t even want to unwrap them any more because they’re so unbelievably disapointing.
I don’t even know what to tell everyone at my girl’s brunch this weekend when we all compare Christmas presents… the girl who originally got me the coffee maker will be there. I guess say I got prunes? wtf

I usually get some terrible gifts but this year I got really nice things.
Last year the worst was my mom’s to my Fiance.
She told him she got him a year subscription to his favorite magazine and he was so excited. 2 months roll by and still nothing (so he figures they will be backed from orders up or come all at once very soon and skips buying them). 6 months go by and we realize she lied, and he lost out on his fave magazine for a half of a year. She didn’t get anything for either of us and she forgot to tell me happy birthday later that year too. Thanks mom. Greattttt gifts! The worst part was we got her nice things (the year before that I even got her a $380 watch) we still gave her something this year too. I don’t know why I keep trying to get my mom to like me. She just told me over Christmas since she got me a few gifts she couldn’t afford to help pay for my little sisters bridesmaid dress. =(

What in the world was he thinking? Did you tell him that you’d always wanted one as a child, or something? I’m trying to justify someone buying a 25 year old woman an Easy Bake, but I just can’t. If he wanted you to make him more desserts, he could’ve gotten you a cookbook and some baking pans or something (for the REAL oven).

Oh, that really sucks. I don’t think I’d be putting much effort into her gifts, anymore.

This year I actually got some really nice gifts. My worst gift this year was a set of four mugs with a Victorian Christmas scene on them.
Last year, however, I got a Christmas nightlight from my Future Mother-In-Law and a disc of clip-art which turned out to be an expired demo from my Aunt & Uncle.
