I guess using the phrase “it’s the thought that counts” won’t be very popular on this thread. #;<)

I got:

a package of computer erasers. Literally erasers shaped like computers.

an 9$ iPhone Speaker booster thing that doesn’t work.

and a shirt that shows if you have a WiFi signal that was 4 sizes too small because the Chinese don’t realize fat American’s aren’t the same size as fat Chinese.

My girlfriend actually felt bad after we got done opening presents so she’s ordering me an Arduino lol.

I never get bad presents, but, my wife did not seem too pleased with the can of Bondo, electrical plugs ,dehydrated snow, or the light bulbs for her office that I got her. She is just one of those people that demands toast with her peanut butter and jam. I did also buy her a 12 inch thick memory foam mattress so I am not a total cad.

I got a bathmat.

The stupid wanna-be SIL “gifted” me that.

I learned after the past two years of her useless re-gifted crap, so, this year I cut waaaay back on her gift.

But, I still managed to over do it. Next year I will find a way to make it E V E N.

Hehehehe.

A bathmat............really?

Not this year, but I once got a regifted bottle of cologne. The gift giver obviously hadn’t opened the box because the cologne was half evaporated. Cheap stuff anyway. I tried to think of a use for it.

I discovered the secret to perfect gift giving: If I give my wife a gift she does not appreciate, I am a klutz, thoughtless, inconsiderate and selfish. If my wife gives me a gift that I do not appreciate, I am also a klutz, thoughtless, inconsiderate, selfish and ungrateful, to boot!

A relative dropped off CHRISTmas presents last July to save for this season. They were packages of last years CHRISTmas candy.

Most gifts are lousy gifts. Pardon my humbug, but years ago, our family agreed that we would get holiday gifts (we’re Jewish) for the kids, but for the adults, we’d save our money and buy what we want for ourselves, instead of wasting all that money buying gifts that nobody wants. My wife is hard to convince. She never goes anywhere without taking gifts - any occasion, or no occasion.

And, as a recult, we are backsliding, and for this past holiday, I bought her something that I knew she wanted, and I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t remember what she got me. I guess my humbugs are going unheeded.

Step daughter said she bought me a lottery ticket, which, of course, didn’t win (she kept the tickets). I told her I bought her 100 lottery tickets and none of hers won, either. If you’re going to be a lying skinflint, be a BIG lying skinflint.

Heh, last year she gave me a pair of “slipper socks” with the sale price tag STILL ON, $4.99. She drives a Lexus.

No class

Obama chia head.bwawahahahah....I gave my husband one of those last year as a joke and he laughed forEVER. He sent pics of it to everyone he knew that is a lib.

The joke was a bit on me though - those were nearly sold out everywhere and I had to pay a bit extra for one online. It was worth it though.

My husband laughed and laughed! Did my heart good.

$4.99? Those are expensive socks. You can get a three-pack for that at Walgreens! Four-pack of the “slightly-irregular”!

They were very special - from bath and body works.

Looked like something the cat-in-the-hat would wear.

They were SLIPPER socks - they have little non-skid things on the bottom. So they are supposed to be “slippers” more than socks. Essentially, she gave me (re-gifted) a $4.99 pair of slippers. They were hideous to boot. Which is likely why they were re gifted to me.

I felt the love. Though.

I got some of those slipper socks too when I was in the hospital! I was standing on the slippery floor when they took X-Rays of my head and neck to find out why I got a big Tylenol stuck in my throat.

She's used to this kind of thing.

Last year her Mom got her a nice set of ear rings but,
dropped one in her dumpy house before she wrapped them and it disappeared.

She gave her the one....still waiting for the other.

Your wife sounds like an unlucky woman when it comes to gifts...

Perhaps your mother-in-law needs to tidy up a bit?
