Last year my Dad got DH & I such bad presents I wished he just hadn't bothered. DH got a Guiness Book of Records!!! I got a candle in the shape of a sun which was painted with glitter and stuff. It was flourescent yellow and when we tried burning it the room filled with plumes of black smoke and set off the smoke alarms!! Needless to say we through the candle out and sold the book on ebay for a couple of dollars.
Oh, and Dad's sister is always buying me really bad presents. One time I got lingerie - but it was stuff she had already worn
o: She said "Oh, I washed it". Like that matters! And I once gt a jigsaw puzzle with a piece missing, and my brother gt a boat that you put together and it has foreign language instructions and a piece missing. For our engagement she got DH & I a wooden heart-shaped jewellery box... hmmmm.
Good luck this year, everyone!!
