for work, we had a yankee swap and i was stuck with a santa figure that pooped out candy when you pressed his head.

12.01.2009 Report

When my husband and I married, we lived in the country and he really wanted to try his hand at pig farming. My cousin, who bred and raised hogs, gave us a boar (That’s a male hog for breeding purposes!) for our wedding gift. How romantic!

For me it had to be a birthday gift from a old friend. I got hurt at work and he got me a statue of a guy all wrapped up in bandages that had a logo on the bottom that said sue the bastards. I probably still have it some where in the attic.

My husband and I married in college. The first year of our marriage, I stayed up late at night to study, plus I had a part-time job three nights a week. This left little time for romance. On our first Christmas together, my husband gave me a pair of jumper-cables as a joke.

My grandparents sent me a Christmas gift when I was thirteen years old. It came in an attractive white square box. Inside I found the box full of bright blue translucent chrystal rocks. I did not know what it was for. First I thought it might be rock candy, but sucking on one of the rocks proved it was not rock candy. Then I thought that they had remembered that I loved gardening and that these were decorative rocks in which to force bulbs. But they were so sharp that I ruled that out Something for potpourri? They had no scent to them. I do not remember how I wrote my thank-you note. I still do not know what they were for, fifty-five years later, and it’s too late to ask them.

Oh man, some of these posts are hilarious! I was involved in a white elephant gift exchange at work and I received a staue of a faceless monk holding a video camera. Needless to say noone tried to take my gift…

My boyfriend made me this shell person. It was a shell with big eyes, another shell for the nose, and it sat on a block of wood. I guess its the thought that counts.

I was 22, living in New Orleans at the time with my boyfriend, and it was our first Christmas together away from New York. It was Christmas Eve, and I came in from work, and there hanging in the Living room was foot tall white and yellow Cockatiel stuffed toy with a bow, sitting on a perch, hanging from the ceiling. It was such a delight to see it there, and when I got closer I realized he had something dangling from his claw, a beautiful diamond and pearl ring! It was a very special gift and made being homesick that year, a little less so.

I received a set of dishes when I was 13.

A used silver coffee pot. It was definitely not new and some relatives sent it from Italy. Did it belong to a great grandmother or something? I never did find out why they gave me a used coffee pot!

Okay, peeps, here’s your chance! : )

My most unusual gift was a hamster from my first ‘real’ boyfriend in high school (we started later back then…). Then we broke up and I kept my hammie. : )
