    Do we have the same MIL? My MIL buys us cheap kids toys as presents ($2 shop type cheap) to give to us, and then kindly tells us that she was in the shop getting something else, remembered she needed to buy us a present and saw what she gave us at the counter. It's oh so thoughtful.

    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!

    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.

    So - what is the worst present you have ever got?
    I'm in the same boat, it's mine on Monday & DH went shopping today... I'm a bit scared! Lol

    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!
