Phoning it in

So I'm tired of bitching about my sick kids and talking about boobies. You guys write this one...

In honor of Megan and Trey's upcoming wedding, I want to know - what was the worst wedding gift you have ever received?

I think that if the couple has lived together that unless they registered for it don't buy them household shit. I mean DJ and I lived together for almost 2 years when we got married and we got a toaster. Yes, yes the gesture and the thought that counts and all that jazz, but really, you think I could live 2 years without a toaster?????? LOL
I can tell you that the best gift was a mini honeymoon to WisDells paid for by the family I nannied for. That was sawweet!

A cookie sheet and a check for $5 dollars from a family of four! I nearly died!

Oh, gosh, I know we got some crazy ones, but I think it was the home decor stuff that we got that drove me the most crazy. I firmly believe that one should not buy "art" for people unless you know the person REALLY well and that person picked out the art.

Oh and one more "Willow Tree". Kill Me.

I'll tell you about a really special wedding gift received. A lady with limited funds bought a baking dish and included with it some favorite family recipes. It was a great gift.

How about have everyone tell their BEST wedding gift - I can think of lots of bad gifts for Mimi but nothing really cool.

All of the wedding gifts we received were lovely, Anon, but nice try! :) I do still have a really ugly horse figurine that I got as a white elephant gift, once (not a wedding gift), that I'm trying to offload. Maybe I need to send it to Jenny...

Kathryn - we still use the grill regularly and aim grateful thoughts north.

Love,
Amy

We didn't get anything strange or offensive as a wedding gift, but we did get some fancier things that we just never used, and wound up giving away. One friend of ours sent us this beautiful solid silver butter dish -- it had a decorated lid and two levels inside, so you could put ice in the bottom. Unfortunately, though, we do not often get visits from the queen, so after storing it for a decade, it finally had to go to Goodwill.
