    Bahahaha!!

    Weirdest present I ever got was from MIL for the first Christmas that DF and I were together - so was the second time I ever met her. It was a box of penis shaped pasta.

    Every year for Christmas from DH's grandma, my SIL and I get matching teapots and knitted teapot covers. We don't even drink tea. I think I have 3 teapots now?

    For my birthday from her I got a coffee mug. She also sends us tea towels that she embroiders the edges of. At least the mug and tea towels are useful, I suppose.

    For my 21st my Nonna gave me a clock, kinda shaped like a cuckoo clock, but instead of the cuckoo part, it had a big sculpture of Jesus leaning out of the top. Bless her

    Mil always comes up with goods.. Best one would have to be a pair of pillowcases, each one having half a love heart on it, so that when they are put together make a heart.

    She was adamant that we put them on our bed as newlyweds. Hmmm matches my Sheridan quilt cover... Not!

    lol some of these are hilarious! I'm usually pretty lucky, I don't get many gifts at xmas and bday, usually only from mum, dad and my MIL, but they are usually pretty decent. But my grandmother used to knit me jumpers when I was in my early 20's, hardly what a 21 year old night clubbing going uni student would wear but the worst thing? they were literally 5 sizes too small (and I was tiny back then, a size 6-8) and would of fit a 10 yo, had ugly stripes and colours and they were all falling apart at the seams lol I would open the present, shudder at the sky blue and brown spotted jumper with the gaping arms and turf it in the vinnies bag.

    The same gm went thru the doily type knitted coat hangers too *double shudder*

My DH has received a bottle of chlorophyl and some second hand star trek t-shirts for a birthday. The children were given a cheap second hand rocking horse with one eye and the bear they had bought to be the donor for the eye (I am not cutting up a teddy for it's eye!) the rocking horse would flip over so it was creepy and unsafe! One parcel recently had a tiny piano which was a music box stuffed with wishbones (real and strange to send to a family of non meat eaters) and tiny glow in the dark cherub dolls. I do wish she wouldn't send parcels of junk from $2 shops and opshops (we have them here! We don't need it sent from Qld!) and really really old chocolate she stockpiles and sends for Easter and Christmas.
    Glad we aren't the only ones to get weird pressies!
    Bahaha ... I was laughing through this whole post but the wishbones had me in stitches C.R.E.E.P.Y!!!
