    My mother once gave her mother a box of underwear for Christmas. Most of it was the big granny-style undies she'd actually wear, but on top Mom put a red lacy thong. There were about 30 family members watching when my grandmother opened that box.

    Best present: last year my parents got me a PDA. It was awesome.

    Worst present: a blue decorative "binder case" that didn't even zip properly.

    Worst gift I got was a knee support thing - and I'm not even a sporty type.

I've given a candle holder for a tea-light, covered in green and red glitter and green scented "burning sand". It's actually fun to go out and bargain hunt for something cheap, and we always laugh when someone get's something particularly horrible.

    Astrogirl, I like that idea a lot.

    One of my Sis-in-laws is notorious. There was the package of dry spaghetti sauce one year, the glow in the dark earrings another year. But my personal favorite was when she gave my sister & I matching fake red leather purses, complete with an identical overpowering stench of mold. I don't know why they were moldy and smelly, I just know they quickly found their way into the garbage. After that we started a "kids only" gift policy. We're all much happier.
