A friend of mine got a low fat cook book from her MIL. Ouch!
For the first 15 years of my life my grandmother would give me either a towel or a face washer not even new ones they were always her old ones. My birthday was last sunday and DH, the kids and my parents were great with presents and brunch and dinner but from my siblings I didn't even get so much a text or Facebook message to say happy birthday. I have come to expect it though my birthday has never been important and is usually fobbed off I think the fact I said something about it last year is the only reason my parents and DH did something this year.
A box of Gloria Jeans tea from dh who left it to the last minute to buy me a gift one christmas. He went to the shops after work on Christmas Eve and expected all the shops to be open. Well they weren't. I don't even like tea that much. That was a sad christmas.
For my eleventh birthday my Nana gave me a jar of gherkins.
At my party.
In front of all of my friends.
And insisted I ate one then and there.
God bless Nanas everywhere.
Not a birthday present but the worst gift I was given was a secret santa gift. I got a handcream which was marked as the 'Tester' and had been used! Someone obviously forgot about secret Santa and made a last-minute dash to the chemist! I was so embarrassed opening it in front of everyone as all the other gifts were thoughtful!
Worst present was for one birthday I asked for everyone to give me a board game and someone who thought I play too many games (this is what they told DH) decided to get me a Rihanna perfume set instead. I still haven't opened it because I only wear CK Be.
