    Hi, I thought I would start a funny thread. So what was the worst or funniest thing you got for Christmas and who bought it for you? Also what was the best gift you ever received and who bought it for you?
    Mine was a scrub buster. It was a device used to clean the dirt in the grouts of the shower tiles. My husband bought it for me. The funny thing is, he used it in the garage and I never seen the thing again. Thank Goodness. Now for the best gift, a diamond dark blue Sapphire ring. Yes also from my husband. I guess he made up for the grout cleaner. (lol) Your turn

      HI Lisavanvorst:  I have received a potato masher with a smiling egg at the top of the handle; a Statue Of Liberty dirt thing where you grow moss on it and chair leg covers with elf feet on them!  All have brought a lot of laughs!
      One year my husband gave me a roll top desk, and I cried with joy.  If I was a millionaire, I would not collect cars like rich people do.  I would collect desks!  I LOVE sitting at a desk writing in my diaries, journals, or working on my book.  Right now I have another desk in our living room which is big, and I plan to start writing Christmas cards on it tomorrow.
      In second place are gift cards for Barnes & Noble, or the movies.  I camp out at Barnes & Noble all the time and work on my writing and I LOVE going to the movies.
      This is a great question and thank you for giving your hub friends the opportunity to contribute.  Blessings!

    The worst gift (and this is cliché) was a vacuum cleaner; giver...my ex-husband.  The best gift I've gotten would be more than one and would be too many to count...gifts that my children (and I have 8) have made me during the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year's holidays.

    One of the funniest gifts I have ever received at Christmas was from a sorority friend. With my sorority friends, we gave gifts to each other each year and most of the time, when we get gifts we don't need, we put these in our gift cupboards. One Christmas, I got a very nicely wrapped gift and my friend was so proud of parting with it to give it to me. When I opened The soap set, I immediately recognized it as the gift I gave her several years past. So, I told her, this was the gift I gave you. We all laugh at it. We are like sisters so we can laugh at those mistakes.

    The best was from our son and daughter in law when we were working in Hanoi one Christmas. They bought us dinner at one of the best restaurants and symphony tickets afterwards. How they managed to organize this was awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed a Christmas away from family.
