I was telling a girlfriend of mine a few weeks ago that my MIL used to send DH and our kids framed pictures of herself.

I've been pretty lucky - I really don't have a worst gift.

I haven't received very many bad gifts but there is one...one year for Christmas SIL gave me a large gold lame envelope type of clutch purse. It was something that I would never use, totally not my style at all, which anybody who knows me would realize. I don't know what she was thinking, or if she was thinking...unless it was a hint that she thought I needed to change my style. Too bad I didn't have anything to wear with that purse lol. I tried to remember that its the thought that counts and felt bad about getting rid of it but eventually I gave it to Goodwill--I didn't even know anyone that I could re-gift it to.

I had an aunt that used to buy Avon products. She would try them for a week or so.

My worse present was from my Mom & was the strangest thing. She gave me a 36 inch high Bride doll. I have never collected dolls & when I was little I loved baby dolls not Barbie & my Mom never liked any type of doll. This gift has never made sense as she ordered it & had it custom made with my birthstone & an ivory gown like I wore.

Just found it in the laundry room closet with the old unused sports equipment. lol Need to find a little girl who will love it. Dee

I have a few...

First, my MIL got the idea that hubby somehow needed a collection of ceramic pigs after attending the county fair with us one year and seeing how much he enjoyed watching the newborn piglets.
