@Bao:  I don’t know… I think that’s almost worse than giving nothing at all LOL.

Nothing too crazy as of yet, but my aunt made us this basket that was nice, def some household items from around the house that were in it… She comes up to my afterwards and is like oh, I was going to add some pancake mix in your basket as well, I was like oh, thats okay.  She is like, I didn’t want to add it because it was already opened, but if you want it, you can come by the house anytime.  I am like, that’s okay, thanks anyways!  In my head, im like what?!?!  …. LOL

These types of things were the inspiration for my blog, hahaha.

Ahhh.. the lynx reminds me a of a gift we didn’t receive.  There was an art gallery going out of business and my dad saw a fantastic price on an original Andrew Kiss painting, but called my mom and they decided they couldn’t gift us art because that’s too personal.  We found out a few months later and were totally bummed, because we both would have Loved it!  Better safe than sorry though, at least they have enough good sense to not buy us art!


Our weirdest was a cut crystal vase with a flower pattern engraved on it.  It was brought to the wedding, so we could cart it back across the country home.  The giver would be absolutely crushed if she knew we both went “wtf.”  It would be a million times better if the flower pattern wasn’t on it.

Uh, my great-aunt gave us this weird figurine of (what we think looks like) a half-naked woman holding a baby with a giant heart behind them. It’s all white porcelain, about a foot tall, no real details. Just a random half naked lady and her kid with a big heart behind them.

Thanks, Aunt Vi!

My DH is best man in a wedding this weekend.  Last night, I remembered we still hadn’t gotten the couple a gift yet, so I mentioned to DH that we needed to.  His response:  “No, we decided that you were going to make them some pottery, remember?”

…No, I most certainly did NOT remember.  I make very good work and have given my stuff as gifts before, but there are several flaws with this plan of DH’s:  1) We never had this conversation.  I would have never agreed to it, and I definitely would remember it if I was suddenly making someone’s wedding gift, 2) I barely know the couple (they live out of town) and don’t know their style, color scheme, ANYTHING, and 3) I don’t have a working kiln yet, so it’s impossible for me to make anything yet anyway.

DH was really bummed when I told him that we were NOT giving them something I have yet to make which they might hate anyway.  He didn’t understand why it was a bad idea.

Hooray for narrowly escaping having a bride add our gift to this thread!

No wedding yet, but we got a random engagement gift from one of FMIL’s friends, whom neither Fiance nor I have ever met.

It’s a frame with a massive base (about 8″ wide) that holds 4 panels of glass that have hand-painted vines around the edges and coming in to the centre. You’re supposed to put a photo in the very back and then from a distance, it looks like whoever is in the photo is wrapped in vines.

It’s in our living room. Up high. On a shelf. Near the back.

We also got a used cookbook. There was alot of pages that had handwriting on them, greasy fingerprints and crinkled pages.  

A “sexy honeymoon gift” (as the tag read) that was wrapped in a shoe box and contained a vibratorAnal-ese lube and a Couples therapy book. —tacky and disgusting!!!

A horrible, cheap set of dinnerware that was super ugly!


I would of rather not gotten anything lmao

So obviously our wedding is over a year away, but about a month ago I had this conversation with Future Mother-In-Law, “Hey Future Mother-In-Law, have you had a chance to work on that guest list yet? Just names, we don’t need addresses yet, we’re just trying to get an idea of how many people we’re hosting.” “Oh dear, no I’ll get to that, but, I just finished quilting you the sweetest wall hanging as a wedding gift.”

Um… thank you. Thank you very much…. but who do you want to invite?

We got a box of bacon and I’m talking like 20 pounds of bacon. This guest got it from a meat market and thought hey, bacon!! I divided it up with everyone I knew and their mother and yet we still have bacon left.

I got a crochet poop. I’m not even kidding. Someone crocheted a poop and then framed it and then gave it to us.
