Wow, that's creepy.

I got a pencil sharpener as a gift when I was a child. Not so odd in and of itself, but it is odd that, although I've never put batteries in it, this sharpener has gone with me for almost 30 years, sitting on whatever desk happened to be mine, in case I ever need it...

Re: Odd gifts

LOL.

Were they g-string?

My friend's mother once got her a 3 pack o' panties with pictures of a BIG MAC on the crotch. (Better than a Filet o' Fish, I guess).

I had a nasty habit, when I was little, of humping my stuffed animals. My favorite was a little gray stuffed mouse. My mother knew all about my "habit" but of course we never talked about it. Then one Christmas morning I woke up to find a brand new mouse -- the exact same one but brand new -- under the tree. She was literally feeding my habit!

Re: Odd gifts

No g-strings but panties perfect for that week of the month. I have to say, I am impressed of her guess of my size.

I think my face must have said it all or I got very good over the years to hide that WTF face.

Re: Odd gifts

I have a really good female friend who always gets me underwear, it's kinda weird, I guess..But she trades it, so not that weird. She as a pro is the only one who gets the size super correct.

Weird gifts? Great thread, by the way.

Uhmm..Boxed up tumble weed. I get care packs with random knicknacks, souvenirs, poems, bizar theater tickets, bits of board games coz my friends know I like them. Or bits and pieces of literature and music, but that's not that weird. I think I gave a weird gift, once, when I gave mom aftershave. I was 5 and couldn't read.

Odd gifts are awesome.

Perhaps he was hinting at preferred bedtime attire.

Re: Odd gifts

I got a cabbage once. It arrived by Interflora, with the very defensive delivery guy being very quick to point out that he was just the messenger.

NO. It was an ordinary green cabbage, like so.

Re: Odd gifts

My SIL always gives me sexy lingerie sets. Negligees and g-strings are a particular favorite of hers to give. I still find it a bit weird and creepy.

I can't help but think that she's thinking about what her brother would like in the sack. I usually can't bring myself to wear them.

What kind of love are you trying to spread by sending your old knickers around Aunty Sass?

Awww, really? That is pretty odd.

On the other hand, can somebody send me "odd gift cabbage"? I make a mean cabbage soup

Try eating an old ball of tumble weed. Shtinks.

Did you get it from a Swiss? Cabbage or "Chabis" means "rubbish"

It's a penis cozy.
