My mother-in-law ... sent presents over ... I received a small sample bottle of hairspray, two wicker coasters and a sample pack of two maxi pads! The look on my husband's face Christmas morning was priceless!

One year I stuffed the kids stockings with their favorite DVDs and latest PS2 games. My husband's stocking contained a new wristwatch, cuff links and socks. My stocking contained pantyhose -- beige and size A (I'm 5'10, 180 lbs.) and a miniature screw driver set to repair eyeglasses. I don't wear glasses.
My mom grew up in a small town in Ohio ... Her friend has always been a bit loopy. She is known for buying cheap things at a garage sale, claiming she made the things herself. The worst gift she got me was a packet of cherry Kool-Aid. The worst thing she got my mom was one stick out of a five pack of chewing gum. No joke.

The worst gift I ever got was one out of a 5-pack of VHS tapes! A year later after I was running out of socks, I asked for socks and got duct tape!

My grandmother ... gave my sister this beautiful leather jacket and top of the line baby clothes ... she gave me a box of black hair dye. She said, "Red is such an ugly color for hair. I know you were born with that deformity, but at least you can fix it and have beautiful black hair like your sister." My mom slapped her

My husband's grandmother owned three jewelry stores in West Palm Beach, Fla. For Christmas, my first year as a member of the family, everyone received rings, diamonds, watches, gold chains ... I received one tube of lip gloss. Go figure!

One Christmas, my cousin who married money, gave everyone at the party a gift card for 100 dollars. I got the card and I opened it, and to my wonderful surprise ... it was a $5.00 gift coupon to McDonald's.

one year my husband bought me a vacume and a bra, it was our 2nd year of marriage I can laugh about it now, but then I was just mad!!
