    For Christmas 2009 Mil gave me a 2009 diary from the $2 shop complete with the price tag.

    You could say its the though that counts but I don't think there was much thinking involved.

    At least I could make sure I wasn't double booked for NYE.

    Next year when he asks, tell him to surprise you!!

    Mines a Christmas present, but from my MIL. she has two daughters and three daughters in law, all the others got huge Avon gift packs and I got a set of three toiletry bags from the reject shop! It was so awkward when the other girls were all sitting around check ing out their packs and I had these cheapo toiletry bags ha ha!

    A very detailed Jesus on a cross pendant on a necklace from MIL. I am in no way religious.

    Or a broken, ugly clock..also from MIL.

    Not mine, but my DP.

    One Christmas, he opened a present from his (then 6yo sister), to find a WWF wrestling figurine. We both stared at it blankly while his sister, excited, asked "do you like it? You always wanted one as a kid!". His mum then chipped in with "You were always asking for one, and I was always too poor to buy it. Better late than never". DP is adamant that he never, not even as a child, liked or wanted a WWF doll. It has now lived on our mantelpiece for about 4 years, as we didn't know what else to do with a figure of an aggressive muscley man in underwear. MIL & SIL would definitely notice if he disappeared.

    From my ex-MIL a small handbag that was that awful glitter silver colour but it did have a nice butterfly on it. She is an op shopper so I think that's where she got it from. It wasn't a good size, not something I'd use. She's a lovely person but that was the worst gift I got from her.

    Another would be getting a box of condoms from my very out there and naked loving Aunty and Uncle when I was 16yrs old. They wanted me to be safe when the time arose. Embarrassing then but funny now

    One year I was given a chocolate fountain along with the comment 'I know how much you love chocolate'...must have confused me with someone else because I've never liked chocolate!

    Just an FYI - anyone that gets unwanted smelly lotions etc please give them to your local women's and children refuge or girl teen home. They sure would be grateful

    A pizza stone and accessories from my brother...would normally be a fantastic gift but I am dairy free (and he knew that and mentioned it when I opened the gift wtf?) so it's sat in the garage since Christmas.

    My stepmum is convinced that I had an abiding childhood crush on the Bay City Rollers. I have no recollection of this whatsoever.

    Oh yes! Both my brother and MIL gave us pizza stones and we have a wood fired pizza oven outside. We don't have a need for the pizza stones.
