World's Worst Christmas Gifts...
Five and a half weeks to go until Christmas Day. (What? Thanksgiving is only how many days away?)
Hold on...I'm catching my breath because when I see it in writing, my heart races.
My blog readers have become a valuable source of not only encouragement to me, but also a source of information and help. So here's the deal - as I get serious about Christmas shopping, instead of asking for suggestions or what is on your list this season, I am asking for the worst gift you've received in the past.
You know, the ones I should avoid (like nose hair clippers - very practical, not very romantic).
I did see the Obama Chia Pet and was thinking that my ladies study might get a kick out of that...but then again, maybe not. (After slicing my thumb open on the Pampered Chef apple slicer, I don't think I'm giving those away either - it was like playing with a razor...)
So, help me out here. What's the worst gift you've received or even given? (A weighted doctor's scale sends a specific message, don't you think?) What gifts initially look like a great idea but turn out pretty bad? (I never could get the Leap Frog reader hooked up to the computer for my children...)
Thanks, in advance...
