weird gifts

  1. What is the wierdest gift you ever received from your SO? When I was dating my husband he showed up at my place with a bottle of Downy and a ball dispenser. He didn't like the fact that I used fabric sheets (because the washer did not have a dispenser) so he bought me that. The strangest gift I've ever gotten! Married him anyway!

    My husband is pretty good with gifts, although he did purchase a George Foreman a few years ago for "me" and he uses it more than I do..lol.

    Before we were married, my husband gave me a biography of Bill Clinton for Valentine's Day.

    I've never really gotten a weird gift. Hubby is a pretty bad shopper, so I usually pick what I want, write it down, include the store at which he can purchase it, and a mini map of the store's interior so he knows exactly where to find it.

    Or we just go together and I pick it out.

    I didn't really answer the question, did I?

    Long ago my wife learned what she can pick out, and what she can't. Clothes she definitely does not (one can only have so many floral prints, for crying out loud), but CDs/DVDs/books, stuff like that she can.

    So I've never really gotten a weird gift, either. Although she did buy me a waffle iron once. I think it was a hint. Its all dusty and stuff now.

    A red Union suit!! My husband bought it because he was tired of my complaining of the cold. It even has a drop seat which comes in handy!! Yes, I do wear it at times!!!

    Delirium-

    Yes, lol, I did. We've been married for six wonderful years, and he is the best.

    I do bring up the Bill Clinton book every now and then, just to harrass him.

    That's even weirder than the fabric softener. That was seven years ago and I don't even know why I thought of it today!

    If my husband buys me an article of clthing it is alway in an extra-large. Except I'm not that darn big! I wear a medium and some larges and have since we met.
    And he has a thing for 80s hair bands. Gee thanks honey, I didn't even realize that I didn't have "The Best of White Snake" in my cd collection.

    That is really funny. Hubby found a top for me two Christmas' ago that he thought I would like - it was a 2x! I wear a medium but the thought was nice. Do they not read labels or what?

    I got a box (24 count) of "Crunchie" bars one year. I don't even like them...

    I think he had me confused with an old girlfriend or something...
