    I didn't really get any bad gifts this year. The one that I will use the least, however, is a Christmas snowman cookie jar. My Mom is big on Christmas decorations, and we usually get at least one every year. It's cool, and we'll use it at Christmas, but that's about it.
    I hate Christmas stuff as Christmas gifts b/c you have to wait a year to use it.

    my mother in law game me a cheap little shoe shine kit... WTF? I told my wife to tell her not to get me anything because she always buys stupid shit like that for me. I Know... it's the thought that counts but she's a bitch and I think she does it on purpose.
    Isn't it the worst when you have to open those gifts in front of other people and act half excited while other people are thinking, "That sorry son of a bitch."

    Wouldn't you just once like to say, "What the fuck is this piece of shit?"

    I did well this Christmas and received cool or useful gifts.

    However, every year around Thanksgiving my mom will ask me what I want for Christmas. For the last 4 years I have given her a list of 3-5 books I would like and tell her she could get one or two of them. She has never given me one of these books, nor has she given me a gift certificate to Barnes or any of the other book stores. I finally called her on it this Christmas asking why she bothers to ask what I want when she never gets it. Her response was that I always ask for books and they are not a very good gifts....what the f', if that is what I want, then why is it not a good gift?!?!?

    What is her idea of a GOOD gift?

    Sounds like it's time for a Mom trade in.

    My girlfriend's brother got a gay Walmart special zipper sweater from one of his relatives. All I could think was you poor bastard. That's why I just wanted money for Christmas. I bought myself a sweet digital camera and a golf simulator so that I can swing the clubs year round.
    My girlfriend gave me a shirt last year and even though I liked it the words, "I don't think this will go with any of my pants" came out of my mouth. She was pissed for a good long time. I ended up spending $80 at oldnavy.com getting pants to wear the shirt with. For some reason blue shirts just don't go with blue jeans for me.

    Strange... Books are on the top of the list for some of my family members... to the point that I have to schedule vacation time to read them by next Christmas... usually... this year I did only get one though.

    I got some pretty good stuff. I di get some lame crap... but it was all like 3 or 4 dollar type lame crap that my father and or in laws buy just so you have more stuff to open...
