There's one every Christmas, it seems.
That gift that puzzles you, irritates you, embarrasses you, frustrates you. And even if you know in your heart that it's Christmas and that you should be gracious and thankful, you just want to shake your head in disbelief?
Was it the ugly Christmas sweater that you gave to Aunt Margie last year, carefully wrapped and unknowingly (or knowingly) re-gifted right back to you?
Was it that set of salt-and-pepper shakers shaped like cheese wedges that your grandmother gave you because she thinks you need a hobby, and shouldn't everyone have a collection of something?
Was it the donation made in your name to a charity you would never have wanted to support, but that the giver supports enthusiastically?
The holidays can be stressful enough. Let's share a giggle and remember those gifts that—years later—still make us say, "What were they thinking?"
