What's the worst present you've received on the holidays?

I think mine, and I hope it's never topped, would be the Shaggy and Scooby Chia Pets that my dh let my boys pick out for me one year.

It's definitely the thought that counts.

a perfume my then fiance's mother bought me, it was cheap and the smell was bad too, Lol. gifting perfume is like jewlery IMO, don't buy it for someone unless you really know what the person likes. but it really is the thought that counts, i donated it to charity, box and all.

I can't think of a worst present.

i have a good dent in christmas shopping. what's hardest is shopping for for people we know we're not going to see for the holidays, i'll order from online sites like harry and david, you can't go wrong with fruit but that stuff seems so impersonal too.

i ordered a bathrobe one year for my husband from JCP. i ordered it monogrammed but the shipment kept coming with his middle and last initial reversed. his middle name starts wtih an "H" so i can understand the mistake once but i attempted re-ordering it two or three times and it kept getting delivered wrong, Lol. JCP offered me a nice discount for the problem they couldn't resolve and DH still wears it!

It might have been easier to just change his name.

When you say the initials were reversed, do you mean the last name initial was in the middle, and larger, and the first and middle initials were to the left and right of the larger last name initial.

We don't normally exchange gifts with the children or with each other, but if one of us sees something that we think would be perfect for the other, we'll often go ahead and get it.
