I mean WHAT? A teddy bear would have worked just fine. (EXs present)

I had an ex who gave me a broken silver candelabra one year. Seriously, it was supposed to have one middle arm, with an arm on either side, but one of the arms was broken off! He said that it was like the two of us–separate at first, but then we came together. I think he was just cheap.

My problem wasn’t that the ex was cheap.  Quite the opposite.  The last birthday I was with my ex husband we were broke, mainly due to the fact that he had to keep up appearances and maintain a drug habit at the same time.  I was the one making sure bills got paid and knew that there was just no money.  He wouldn’t take that as an answer (because he knew that his mother would be asking what he got me and he just couldn’t tell her that he had gotten me nothing even if that’s what I requested).  So I told him that I wanted a new pair of Birkenstocks.  I had had a pair just like this for 10 years and they had finally given up the ghost.  So my birthday rolls around and he presents me with a digital camera (that he wanted), and a memory card for the camera, and a gift certificate for a shoe store that didn’t even carry Birkenstocks.  I don’t know if he didn’t bother to ask if they carried them or if he did and decided that it was too much trouble to stop by the store four blocks from our house that did carry Birks or what.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  I tried really hard not to ROFL when he gave it to me.

The gift (a snowmobile jacket that matched “my” snomobile) was nice, but the fact that he took it back when we broke up sealed it for me.  I hope it fits his wife. 

I mean… it was his hobby, but I had to buy all my own gear to go with him.  Then finally he wanted me to get a cool jacket, so he bought it on clearance at the end of the season, which happens to coincide with my birthday (“here – happy birthday!”).  Then we broke up and he took it back since it matched the snomobile and anyone else who rode it could wear it.

If you got together with a guy who happened to have a LADIES SIZE L jacket just laying around wouldn’t you raise an eyebrow?

My then Fiance (now DH) got me a set of MaryKay for Christmas last year.  WTF, dude?  A long time friend of his sells the crap and convinced him to get it for me. 

I gave it back to him and told him to get his money back.  I couldn’t use it even if I wanted to (I didn’t) because it had parabens in it.  He took it back then brought it back to me and said, “Oh I forgot to give this to you.”

Jesus Christ!  I just threw it under the sink in my bathroom where it still lays collecting dust.  He’ll do better this…I told him exactly what I wanted.  LOL

Not my ex but his grandma gave me a half empty bottle of Brute (a horrible nasty stinky mens aftershave) and a White-Out pen. Still makes me laugh to this day.

Roses made of birchwood shavings–and not the nice ones either. It sounds romantic in theory. In practice, it looked like he ripped off a little old lady for her kitsch.
