My son burst into tears when he unwrapped the present my parents got him - Disney Princess lego, instead of the much more masculine "Ninjago" lego
he wanted. Fortunately was a labelling mix up as the Disney Princess lego was for my DD.

@cheekychook the salt therapy stuff makes me really cross. It's a load of waah waah nonsense that is unproven, and the use of salt therapy is contraindicated for kids with respiratory problems- from what I've read mainly from the salt therapy 'spa' type places as the salt in the air can irritate the air passages. But I personal would not use it knowing your DS has had suspected respiratory issues.

My stepmother gave me the worst presents as a kid that were from her and my dad. She is a very practical person, and doesn't believe in 'dust collectors' or 'wasted money'. My gifts include at age 9, an electric toothbrush. At age 12 I got some shampoo, conditioner, soap and toothpaste. At age 14 I was starting to gain a small amount of weight and therefore was presented with bathroom scales for christmas. I was sharing a room with my brother at one point and so for christmas I was allowed to move into the spare room. Her time spent moving my clothes was my christmas present.
I, consequentially, put a LOT of time and thought into christmas presents. Often this results in me spending too much money on people who don't deserve it.

my Gran (bless her kind soul) loved travel. She wanted her grandchildren to share her love, so decided that she would take us on a trip each.
She was relatively young, and fairly spritely at that point, so started with me (I was the 3rd child of 4) as my age was right for still being considered a child - so fir christmas, I got a trip to New Zealand with her .... and my sisters each got a toothbrush and soap holder
The following year, she wasnt feeling so great (had some health issues in between) so she decided to send my 2 older sisters on a youth camp trip to Cairns (from country WA) .. and me and my younger sister got soap.
Sadly for the younger sister ... she never got a trip ... but we all did develop Gran's love of travel

I didn't really get anything this year from family this year.
But my FIL still is the winner for worst Christmas present ever. I received a tin of tim tams. Half of them gone and the rest stale. Still smiled and thanked the crap out of him how ever. :P

This was more a sign of hubby and I being busy/stressed/hopeless numpties and not the fact that we didn't appreciate great Aunt Gladys and the dinner.
