What's the strangest gift anyone has ever gotten you? - Page 2

post #31 of 44
The strangest gift I've gotten, was when my ex gave me a birthday present, and you know how it is with presents, you are so excited to see what wonderful, fabulous item he has gotten you, and I rapidly unwrapped it to find.........A new iron..(because our old iron wasn't working well anymore), now come on, how romantic is an iron...I was soooo disapointed, but I remained polite about it..

I wouldn't have been able to supress the urge to show him exactly where I thought that iron should be shoved. . .
Ironing hurts my feelings.

A couple of years ago for Christmas an older nun I know gave me a box of tampons all wrapped up with a bow. She figured I'd have more use for them than she would.

Oh this is good. I briefly dated a guy who was one of those self made men with a lot of $$$. Anyhow, we were going out a couple nights a week maybe for 3 weeks when he dropped the L bomb. IT was weird so I backed off but decided to just roll with it because we had fun together. One night he did the whole romantic dinner thing and took me to his place where he sat me down and said he had something for me. He said that he cared about me very deeply and didn't know what I would think of it, but that he really wanted me to have it. Of course I'm thinking that this dweeb wad is going to propose and I am going to have to run out screaming. So he gets down and grabs something, stands up and puts it behind his back, all the while me watching with a look of horror. He moves the item into my view, and at first I'm confused, because it looks like a bottle... It was fish oil supplements!! WTH?! He said that loving someone meant caring about their health. Needless to say that was our last date, it was just too weird after that.

Gee, and I thought a vibrating pillow was a weird gift. My ex got me one of those the day before he became my ex.
I got a pet rock for my hgh school graduation. I carried it in my pocket for years.

The strangest gift ever bought for me: A Manicure.

I don't take care of my hands cuz I work hard with them. I am not a manicure-spa-type woman. Weird gift and it was totally wasted.

Tampons from a nun?!?!?! OK, who on earth can top that one?!?!?!

I guess mine would be of the same "not me" variety, mainly when I was young I had an aunt that EVERY YEAR would give me a doll, up until I was probably 11 or 12. She never did figure out that I didn't like dolls ("action" figures on the other hand .) As I remember I was fairly polite about accepting them and I did enjoy making clothes for them---I was into crafts even then.

We've always given, gotten, unusual gifts in my family. I remember one year giving my sister a Bowie knife, that thing must have had an 8 or 9" blade. Never could find an Arkansas toothpick although I searched for years ... of course this is the woman who has enough armaments under her bed to keep Chattanooga safe for Democracy

I don't think ANYTHING will top the box of tampons, LOL.

My worst was probably for my birthday when I was probably around 14...unwrapped a gift from my grandmother and the box was from knee high nylons...I figured something was wrapped in the box but no, it really was knee high nylons. Thrilling gift for a teenage girl. :-)

Hah.. I actually remembered something else that was really strange... when it was my birthday/celebrating my graduation... my mom's boyfriend's grandmother gave me the most awful looking purse! Its HUGE. Its LIME GREEN. AND ITS JUST HUGE. Its like three feet long and a foot high O_O Its almost a carry on bag xD But it isnt.

I also unwrapped a ceramicish thing on it and it said "mother" and it had words like "You have been there for me all my life" and I looked at it like O_O what??? and it turned out my mom's boyfriend's mom had put the wrong one in the box.

Nuuu.. I think the fish oil surpasses the tampon nun. I mean... just because she's a nun doesnt mean her body doesnt function normally :P

I also got these ugly little angel/faerie candel holders with very fragrant candles.... O_O the little faces scare me. I dont like those type of things. They creep me out.

My mother once gave me the most awful 'funny frog' ceramic holder for kitchen utensils. And the strange thing is I dropped it and broke it within 5 minutes of unwrapping it! I really didn't mean to, but it was as if Fate took a hand. My mom was upset but at least I didn't have to pretend to use it. A friend presented me with a set of 3 mugs last year for my birthday, each with a gnome on, saying 'I', 'love', 'you'. Ghastly.

But on the underwear front, last Christmas my daughter got a pair of elastic tummy control knickers with long legs from her boyfriend's mother. As my daughter is not in any way fat and works out every day, she really did not know what to make of that.

Nothing strange I don't think! The tampon one was a killer!
