  1. Editorial Question of the week:
    For a bridal shower gift my wife received a salsa making kit. This included various plants that we could grow to make our own salsa. Needless to say we never used it. So that Christmas we decided to give it away at a white elephant gift exchange. When someone opened our gift they said, “I think I got this for you for your shower.” It was a super awkward moment, totally forgot they were the ones that gave it to us.

  2. My husband and I had a photo of us on our wedding invitations. One of our guests took that photo and got it printed on a 4 ft by 4 ft blanket and gave it to us as a wedding gift. 😳 My husband likes to use it to creep out our friends who come over, because no matter where you are in the room it looks like his eyes are following you!

  3. When we registered for our wedding (15 years ago), we registered for a few huge ticket items we KNEW we wouldn’t get. So we also registered for almost 50 DVDs, and we took most of them back to get the bigger items we needed.

    Take that Big Wedding. I’m not the sheeple you’re used to.

  4. The worst/weirdest gift I have ever received: a couple from our church gave us towels with yard sale stickers still on them for our wedding. This couple wasn’t hurting for $$…not really sure what the story was…I was too confused to ask.

  5. EQOTW: When we got married a close family friend who even spoke during our ceremony gave us a Ganesh. She knows we are Christians. She lead the prayer team at our church. Well after a year of avoiding her awkwardly, she approached us at church with a trash bag. After nervous hellos she said that she made us something. Uh oh. Turns out It was a gorgeous quilt. The Ganesh was a year long joke. She got us good. Well played Joann. Well played.

  6. My dad, step mom and siblings did not come to our wedding, but a couple months after it had passed they sent us a large framed puzzle of Thomas Kinkade’s painting of The Wizard of Oz. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Uhhh…thank you..? I kinda would’ve rather had my dad walk me down isle but I guess that’ll have to do. 🙄😄

  7. My grandma used to give decent gifts until my cousin who is 15 years younger than me was born. Now, every year our grandma gives us the exact same gifts, baby blankets, toddler toys and superhero costumes.

  8. I work for a short-term missions organization and every once in a while a group will give their coordinators a small gift (Starbucks gift card, chocolate, coffee, etc.). I’m always pleasantly surprised and appreciative because they totally don’t need to do it, but they think of us and that is really sweet. About a year ago I was given a gift bag by a group, and when I opened it, it was a bunch of old hotel toiletries and a full-sized bottle of lotion that was a couple years expired. Um… thanks?

  9. In high school there was a guy who was repeatedly asking me out on a date. Nearly every day. I was pretty consistent with my simply reply of ‘no’. One day, after months and months of solid ‘no’s’ I was going through a really stressful morning and he started asking, I eventually said ‘fine’ to shut him up and (naively) thought that one date would be it. We went on a not-awesome date. Following which he seemed to think we were in a committed relationship. It was just before school was out for Christmas break, I found out nearly a week after this one date that he had a spent considerable amount of money buying me things for Christmas! Including a necklace with a pendant with ‘I love you’ on it. I was horrified. We did not go on any additional dates, I did not receive his gifts, and he stopped asking me out.

  10. My husband and I had a photo of us on our wedding invitations. One of our guests took that photo and got it printed on a 4 ft by 4 ft blanket and gave it to us as a wedding gift. 😳 My husband likes to use it to creep out our friends who come over, because no matter where you are in the room it looks like his eyes are following you!

  11. Shortly after I turned 30, I was house sitting for a couple in my church and while they were away, the husband texted me to ask how I decorated my house. They wanted to get me something for my house as a thank you. Since I was currently staying in their house and saw their decorating style (if I could be called that), I knew I needed to come up with something that would be hard to mess up or go wrong with. I mentioned that a black & white picture/art piece for my walls would be nice. What I got was so, so far removed from that I wonder why they even asked. Imagine my confusion when I opened the gift to find it was a 12 inch tall Precious Moments doll of the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz. Why, might you ask?!?! I kid you not, the husband tells me “so you’ll have a man in your life now” 🤦🏻‍♀️

  12. My stepdad opened one of our “family gifts” from my moms aunt who always got us weird stuff. What was in the package was a wreath of ugly brown sticks. He inspected it for no more than 3 seconds before throwing it like a frisbee across the living room right into the fire.

    Two days later my aunt called to tell us to keep the wreath safe, she had made it herself and was coming to show us where to hang it. Yes she is crazy enough to send a horribly ugly gift and tell us where to hang it.

    Needless to say she was a little upset on arrival.
