    Not sure if it is weird as such, but for my 18th my dad and his wife gave me a cheap jewellery travel case. It actually looked like one that you would get from overflow. and the worst part was i am not a big jewellery wearer??
    it would've been a bit better if there was some sort of jewellery in it maybe a 20c ring from those dispensers at the corner store!! (do they still have them)

    Last year there was a big secret Santa at my parents place, where all of their friends were also involved and you either bought 'male' or 'female' gifts, so not for a particular person. DH got a foot deodoriser and a masterchef magazine, and I got some old lady stockings and...wait for it... A bottle of femfresh!!! I was so so embarrassed.

    Over the years people have always bought me underwear?? I wouldn't mind if it was DH but no it was my mum, aunts or step-grandmother and they were always ugly/too big/too small etc. I would prefer to buy my own undies or perhaps they thought I didn't wear any???? :P

    For my 18th I was given sewing Scissors from an Aunty. I don't sew or own a sewing machine! Was a bit of a laugh though

    My DP gets some pretty funny presents from his very elderly dutch grandma - one year it was a half eaten block of cadbury chocolate that she had wrapped up!! (we laughed so much but it's kinda sad because I don't think she realised it was already eaten ). He has also gotten a hard boiled egg and one of those hats with a radio built into them from her

    My grandma is also a shocker for presents, she once gave my mum a size 10 sparkly christmas shirt for her birthday (my mum is at least a size 18) in may! and she has given me a gardening spade and 1 oven mit in the same present She also loves to send year old organisers (got a couple of those in a row) and really cheap & nasty plastic jewellery from cheap stores. I really don't care though, the laugh we get from the stuff she sends is worth not getting something I would actually use

    I was warned about the gifts DFs grandfather gives for Christmas. So I braced myself.
    DF got a torch that charges by you turning this lever, iykwim? It also can be used to charge a mobile phone in the same way. Never been used lol, don't know if we still have it even.
    I got a body shop gift pack. I didn't think that was too bad, I mean it could have been from Big W or something but nope, body shop and I LOVE body shop.

    My nan (who we think suffers from dementia) is the best for weird presents... So much so.. No one mentions when their birthday is.
    I was given on my 13th birthday a lighter.
    Then on my second 13th birthday (she thinks I'm still 13 when I'm 25)
    A teacup playset... Which she made.
    Out of tissues... Paper mâché style.

Maybe as a housewarming present this time they can give us a matching knife or a giant bowl so that i can eat all the cereal I want

    Default When you need a good laugh.......

    There's a website I go to when I need a laugh...... never fails to make me laugh out loud, and I'm honestly not usually a laugh out loud kind of person. Its a spin off of Damn You Auto Correct, the funny iphone fails.

    Similar to this great thread, but with the pictures too
