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 just love you Abbie!!!! By the way... when is your shower, I have a gift I need to send you.
hahaha rebecca, if its ok with abbie, ill email you abbie's address, i just sent her a present yesterday! she told me that when people say "gift" she forgets about the fact that doug tells her people from the internet could murdalize her hahhaa

    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 basket wasn't even nice, what was supposed to look like round twings, were flat and sharp. Ok, all thing aside, we could take the fruit out and use the basket (even though it was ugly). But, NO! 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).
