OK it happens, sometimes you get a gift that you want to be grateful for but honestly it is awful – pictures are helpful
For my 1st wedding the two that stand out
The hotdog cooker (no we did not register for this) – we tried to use it – it caught on fire – not smoke but flames
The odd brass colored coffee table from his parents. It was not to my taste and it was really inexpensive and poor quality. It came with a matching brass colored bed. I did not ask for either of them but did try to be grateful. We finally said that the movers had damaged the coffee table to get rid of it and the bed frame went soon afterwards.
So what did you have to write a thank you note for but were mostly scratching your head

Dude. What the hell am I going to do with a little decorative crystal bowl. I have no where to put it, nothing to put in it, and it’s the only piece of crystal I (now) own.
And like you said, I’m grateful for any gifts. But honestly, I don’t want anyone to feel like they had to bring something for the sake of bringing something. I’d rather they just shown up and had a good time sans gifts.

we got an electric carving knife. we didnt register for it. And we knew the brand so we tried to return it and the store told us that they havent carried it in 3 years. hello regift!

Pretty sure our crystal bowl was also a regift. It smelled like old lady…meaning it had been in her possession long enough to smell like her.

A ton of lamps (like six) that looked like they were from the 80s :/.
(As a sidenote, the people who gave us them were super generious monetarily, so I wasn’t expecting anything at all.)

Tastiwave…seriously! People know that I love to cook and they give me a device so I can cook in the microwave?!
I have an ad online for it, I hope to get rid of it.

OK, so hear me out. We received (all from the same person) a used baking pan from Ikea (clearly had scratches on the bottom from knife marks), an expired box of Betty Crocker gingerbread mix, and an obviously worn and used nightie (the material was pilling). Lady seriously raided her pantry and dresser, put a post-it note with her name on the bag and called it a day.

I think the gift that pisses me off is the one I didn’t get. My co-worker who couldn’t wait to come to the wedding, had a blast at the wedding, one month later says oh yeah i got you a card, next pay i will give it to you. That’s been going on for a month now. Over it. Rude.

It didn’t happen to me (I’m currently waiting my proposal hehe) but my parents got Piranhas as a wedding gift….nothing says “I wish you a happy marriage” like carnivorous fish.
