lol - my MIL (bless her she was gorgeous) also used to buy me weird things.
But she made up for it by making me apple pie which was to die for
now I feel like eating apple pie and I haven't got any! lol.
My MIL for my last birthday got me a mop, ironing board and coat hangers.... The ironing board is still in the plastic wrapper almost a year later..
Oh and I might add, my house is pretty clean!!!
A fishing rod from DH.
I dragged him over coals for it - I had to, otherwise the year after he probably would have got me golf clubs in his size!
My fil one year gave my mil a mop and bucket

My aunt gave me a stick blender for my 15th. Not bad, just...unexpected
A plastic ruler by my weird aunt. I would have been 7 or 8yo?
Mil tries, but she normally ends up getting me clothes that I would never wear e.g. polyester navy nightie, tops which are too small, super short mini skirt. Maybe 5 years ago I may have attempted a skirt that short, but these days my skirts tend to be knee length.
I feel terrible but I haven't worn one piece of clothing she has given me.

Worst present I've got was a necklace from my Mum for my 30th, it's not me at all & is still sitting in my drawer nearly 3 years later, was a kick in the guts cause it felt like she'd put so little thought into it.
Oh & the Avon smelly crap from MIL every birthday & Christmas that ends up in the bin 4 months later!
