    I was once given a matching tea towel set with pot holders from DH's elderly aunt. I was 18! I didn't know how to react when I opened it, lol...

    My worst was from dh aunty and uncle.
    She gave me a playboy beach towel and men's deodorant set.
    They own a chemist so every year is bad.

    Anything from my tight ar5e sister! She expects money to be spent on her but she gives hand made gifts that make my blood boil-simply for the fact she's being tight and unimaginative! One year I browsed many a store to get around $200 worth of stuff for her gift (lotions, vouchers, jewellery, she'd been eyeing off) and later that year I received a reused frame with a Hollywood stars' face in it with cardboard love hearts around it and his initial 4 my initials (like DH 4 DW). We were in our 20's-WTF?!
    Xmas is the same-she spends about $100 on her hand made gifts and receives 10 times that in gifts back! Last time I have spent a stupid amount on her present. The worse thing is-she's much more well off than me!
