What's the weidest or wackiest holiday gift you've ever received?

So I absolutely believe that it's the thought that counts ...but I have to admit, some gift choices totally give me pause. One year, my mother in law got me cooking lessons. The message was loud and clear -- she hated my cooking. My best friend once got a case of baby wipes from a boyfriend -- and she doesn't even have kids! He thought they would be handy for wiping up messes.  Anyone else ever get a gift that made them think --what the heck?

    A plain umbrella. From an aunt. She got it at a department store when she had to purchase certain thing and got a free gift with that. So she gave me the free gift. There was no thought behind it.

    Weirdest Gift:

    A Winnie the Pooh coloring book - First Christmas present from my mother in-law (she has a history of giving weird gifts).

    Wackiest Gift:

    A Super Dooper Reindeer Poooper - Christmas present three years back from my husbands work to his family.... it's a reindeer that poops out brown jelly beans.

    My husband's aunt is bad about giving tacky, weird, or wacky gifts.

    When I was a dog groomer I got a TPN of weird gifts from clients. I got used lipstick from one and the weirdest was I got underware from another client. She was so proud of her gift too. Who buys their dog groomer undies????
