When is it ok to throw away a gift? 4 monthshuh.gif
Barb, keep them in the closet for regifting! Or as hostess gifts when you go to dinner parties haha. Also...can you say white elephant exchange?

I pull the sweatshirt out and there it is...My FI's picture enlarged covering the entire front of the sweatshirt....and in puffy paint it says 'He's all mine!'! hahahahahahaha I am just thankful that they weren't there when we opened the gifts...cuz I laughed soooooo hard. Thought it was a prank almost....til I opened box two....once again....a beautiful sweatshirt in a gorgeous color. This time, the enlarged photo was a picture of the three of us (FI, Myself and my soon to be step daughter) with writing in puffy paint.

I have them both in a drawer.....waiting the appropriate time that I can maybe turn them into throw pillows or something. My step daughter teases me weekly still asking when I'm gonna wear them!!! I don't know if I could wear them around the house without laughing the entire time!

I've gotten some interesting gifts over the years. Mainly they are things that simply are not my taste.

 

Everyone teases me that I am too gracious (thanks to my Nana) so I get lots of gag gifts. My cousin gave me this HORRIBLE yarn doll that one of her geriatric patients made for her. It had fake eyelashes and googly eyes and red sequined lips. We made it the travelling gift, so someone got it for Christmas, wedding, baby shower, graduation, etc. I think someone did end up losing it during a move. My Aunt did lose it once before on accident and PAID TO HAVE ANOTHER ONE MADE!!!

I had to revive this thread because it's so hilarious! Ok, I have 2.

 

Christmas eve, and we're all getting ready to open gifts. My cousin comes up to me and is like, 'I'm warning you ahead of time, but what Uncle B got you is NOT a joke. He really thinks it's a good gift for you.' hmmmm.... So I open the gift, and it's a Chihuahua statue that stood about a foot tall! HAHA!! When I opened it he was like, 'when I saw that I thought of you'. NO clue why!

 

Second- I was dating a guy for a few months, and I got him a few little things (CD, Gift certificate to get his tongue pierced (gross I know!), baked him cookies.) So I didn't get him a TON, but what I got was two christmas ornaments. Cheap ones, and they still had the stickers from 7-11 on them and they were $2.00 each!

The fruit was attched to the bowl!!!

It probably doesn't sound that bad, but trust me....
OMG, an older lady gave my sister the same gift at her shower! I agree with you. My sister re-gifted it to another older lady in our church!

The only bad thing about regifting shitty gifts is that I don't want the other person to think I have bad taste!

The worst gift I ever received was a gag birthday gift, I have a friend who thinks they are the best ever. I received a clown lamp. Clowns are scary to me and this one was particularly bad. He had one shoe with toes exposed and painted toenails. In one hand he was holding wilted flowers. I could only imagine some pedophile clown. If the gift wasn't bad enough, that night when I went to bed (after a birthday celebration with a few drinks) the clown was sitting on my bedside table staring at me.

 

My ex-in laws had a regifting exchange for Christmas celebration so the clown was regifted the next year (after sitting in my garage for a few months... in a trash bag so I didn't have to see it).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
