I have really sensitive skin and can only use the good stuff, not that cheep perfumy crap. (I also think it's a little impersonel, like a candle). Anyway, I "joking" made fun of his lame gift and it came back to bite me in the butt.
    We went to his parent’s house later that morning and guess what his whole family got me? Yep, bath sets. Then we went to my families for dinner, and guess what everyone got me? Bath sets. I had this massive box from my brother so I saved it for last thinking I would get one good thing. Nope, it was the biggest bath set I’ve ever seen. My FI called it karma for making fun of his gift, but I literally got nothing but bath sets for Christmas. I have no idea where to put this stuff or how long I have to keep it for but I’ve got like 15 separate stinky sets. I will never be unappreciative of a gift again!!!
    When is it ok to throw away a gift? 4 months

    I get migraines with perfume type bath sets and have sensitive skin. Most of my friends know this but apparently forgot on my birthday one year when just about everyone bought me smelly bath sets! To this day they are just sitting in my bathroom cabinet.

I get the symbolism seeing as we just got engaged, but really, the floating hands are just creepy. We've been storing it on top of a bookcase in case she comes over and wants to see it. My mom thought it was great, I don't get it. But here's a photo, what do you think??

        I agree that is creepy!!!! I had a totally envisioned the hands to be the nice ceramic ones...not bronzed...like they belong in a haunted house....Not sure I would keep these in the house!

            Haha these are hilarious! I got a CO2 Detector, that plugs into your wall. Sure this is great but we already have it built into all of our fire detectors! Also this is one of the better gifts FI mom has given us for christmas...last year I got a turkey baster :)

                I think my worst gift ever came from my ex-MIL, in my fourth month of pregnancy, I received a "Thinking of you" card, with a membership to Weightwatchers!!! My hormones were running wild, you can just imagine how well that went. At least I can laugh about it now.

                    And she wondered why we weren't the best of friends! Go figure.
