    Worst - hot pink vinyl wallet from my aunt who used to have good taste.

    Best - My hand made Snow White dress with a dressing table and brushes and high heeled shoes when I was 6.

    Worst ... my mother giving Speedos to me and to my brother when we were early college age. Mine was bright orange and at least two sizes too small. At least our girlfriends got a good laugh out of it. Somewhere there are family photos of me wearing it stretched over my head.

    Best? I'd have to say the pictures my kids gave me, framed in popsicle sticks.

    Best one I gave? Probably giving my college-age brother a remote control car ... wrapping the batteries separately, leaving the AAs where he could find them, and sticking the 9v behind the tree stand. He got too impatient, and got yelled at by our mother for trying to scavenge a 9v out of a smoke detector. Twenty years old, couldn't wait to play with his new toy car. [​IMG]

    That, or the watch I got for my mother the year after I'd graduated college. She cried over that one.

    I generally have it easy, I can buy lego kits for my wife and she's happy.

    Worst...gee I have a lot of really bad ones but I think the stuffed frog from MIL was the worst, it was a dog toy that had already been slobbered on.... it was for me, we didn't have dogs at the time.

    Best.... I always get the goofy gifts or have to buy them myself, so hard to choose.... though I'm thinking the amethyst frog pendant from hubby

    Why isn't your photo on the men's page? And don't feign ignorance.

    Does your MIL have dogs, or does wrapping gifts make her salivate?

    I wasn't even that nice about it. MIL has done some horrible things to try and get 'her' son back. She really burns me she does.... Haven't spoken to her in 3 years, 2 months, 3 weeks and 4 days..... I refuse to speak to that..... person.
