    Default weird gifts.

    Has anybody gotten a weird present for their birthday? or Xmas? my hubby's parents gave him a jar of olives once for xmas, and a $7.50 container of cashews the xmas after. oh, yeah, and the funniest (or saddest, i dunno) a calendar from the local chemist that was free. (and no, they aren't doing it tough either... they are very well off.) Some years he gets nothing. not even a card. I do recall him getting a xmas teatowel with glitter on the santa claus outfit... the look on his face was priceless.. hahaha.

    My aunt (who lives overseas) was always famous for sending odd gifts for Christmas and birthdays. One of the best ones I remember was when everyone got a tassel Not even a pair to use on curtains or something .... just a single tassel for everyone (males, females, adults and kids).

    I got a small plastic horse from my Grandma one Christmas. It was very strange.

    My MIL has bought me the weirdest gifts over the years, but a toothbrush took the cake.

    A lint remover coupled with a bar of chocolate (From a student I taught)
    A hand-made soy candle in the shape of a foot (A neighbour)
    A small tub of yellow paint (Again, a student, before I went on maternity leave)
    A purple sparkly headband (My grandma, bless her socks. I was 32 at the time)
    A towel and a easter egg (Another student. It was my Christmas present)

    These are the ones that come to mind. I am sure if I thought about it, I could come up with more ...

    Frilly coat hangers
    Long teaspoons
    Etched glass ball with a fairy inside it, had led rotating lights under it.
    Embroidered towels (huge embroidery, makes the towel useless!)

    That's all I can remember right now, all from MIL.
