Used Avon makeup from MIL, most of which were garish orange lipsticks and blue eyeshadows (although she has given me some good unopened face creams and her gifts are usually 50/50 to whether they are great or terrible.)
The horrendous necklace my mother got me that was seriously as thick as a dog chain (I like my chains very fine) with a huge ugly pendant on it. DH was teasing me I looked like Mr T
The $5 reject shop 80's country music CD that DH got.... he hates country music and just stared at it for a good 5 mins with this incredulous look lol
The SIL that struts around in our family like she's royalty bc they have a bit of money, looking down her beak at us, who gives the kids $2 plastic toys for their bday while gives the other nieces and nephews $50.

My hubby pretty bad...won't go there.
But I still remember when I was 7 my dad ( bless him) buying my mum a circular saw plus work bench for Mother's Day .
She has never touched it but he still uses it 30 years later .
And yes I did ask her years later.....she hated it., but he did make her a side board with said saw.
Gee dad.....you are so romantic

Step mil gave me a hello kitty nightie in a size 8 only 4 weeks after my ds was born. I'd gained 20 kgs during the pregnancy and was very self conscious about how I looked. It still wouldn't fit 1.5 years later!

Back when we were dating, hubby was so excited saying he knew I would love my Christmas present (prob didn't help that my expectations were then higher with the banter lol)
I slowly opened the wrapping paper and found ....a glass rose ..
I hate clutter, I'm not even a flower type person (I love frogs not flowers) and I remember freaking out in my head because I could not hide my disappointment lol- mum came over and oohed and ahhed which helped a bit
Hubby and I still joke ... All unwanted gifts are referred to as 'glass roses' and he often worries that he will buy me another glass rose ...
11 years of marriage and he has only just started to get the gift thing right

well - DH gave me my present a few days early ... and I have to say I am mega impressed.
He got it right. I mean, jewellery is always right - but this is me. Its perfect
Will post a photo tomorrow, but its a gorgeous gold bangle with sapphires.

I think it was my 10th birthday I got from my aunt an arts and crafts set my mum and dad had got for my cousin a few months earlier.
When I was a teen my mum got some ugly undies that were too big and put them in my stocking for Christmas.
Every year for my birthday and Christmas I give dh a very specific list to give to his family because they always buy crap. This year was no different with really cheap stinky perfume.

I got a silver bracelet for my 16th birthday from my bf at the time. When giving it to me he said 'if we break up I want it back because it was expensive'.
We broke up and I kept it, and I went to pawn it, it was only 20c worth of silver. Ive since sold it for $20 cheap ***.
