My husband gave me, I am not kidding, a political bumper sticker that he got for free.
It's a candidate that my hubby loves. I'm not sure if I'm voting for that candidate or not, but I'm still not putting it on my car. He also gave me candy - about a dollar's worth. That was it.
I really only received a couple of gifts that I appreicate. I know that sounds ungrateful. The past few years I've really tried to tell my family to skip gifts all together, that I don't need anything, I'd prefer just a nice card or something. Instead, they just keep giving me junky gifts that I'm too nice to give away (what if they ask me to see it later or something?).
My M-I-L sent me an item of clothing that she once said would look horrible on any woman, no matter how skinny the woman was. So of course, she sends one to chubby me. While MIL graciously sends gift receipts for clothing she buys the kids, the item for me was missing it's gift receipt. So I guess I'm stuck with it.
My S-I-L, who has always openly hated me & dh, sent me the ugliest, useless gift known to man. It's so aweful I don't even know what to do with it. Maybe I'll donate it, somewhere. It's breakable and I have let the children play with it today. I'm praying they'll "accidentally" break it.
DH & I both received used gifts, but it's from a relative who is pushing 100 yrs old, so it's perfectly fine. Actually, both our used gifts were nicer than what MIL & SIL gave me.
