Gina M Smith said...

Congrats! on your 100th post- and wow- that Deck the Halls bounty (coming and going) was pretty nice!
Worst present: my MIL bought my 7-year-old daughter (her granddaughter!) a jar of expired pickles- just because the kid likes pickles, c'mon.

The worst gift has to be fruitcake... I HATE fruitcake! LOL!

Happy 100th!

P.s.- your order is on its way... I was a bit late mailing it with the holiday this past week. xoxo

Britt- Sparkled Vintage Charm said...

I can't really think of a worst gift.
I guess I don't have one. I love everything anybody buys/makes me. It is the thought that counts :-)

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

My wost gift was a cookie jar in the shape of a bathroom scale!!! Can you image that. Mary

Dawn-Hydrangea Home said...

How about a roasting pan from my HUSBAND!

Heidi said...

Oh, do enter me in your drawing! How fun!

How about a chunk of cheese? I'm not was at a Christmas party where we exchanged gifts and I rec'd cheese. I'm still laughing about that gift!

Ele at abitofpinkheaven said...

Congrats on your 100 post. Loved seeing your ornament swappies. The book you made is fabulous. This will have to be my daughter's worst gift. The year she went to kindergarten her grandfather teased her about having to wear diapers to school (she didn't, that's why it was a joke). For Christmas he wrapped up a diaper for her. She laughed until she looked inside and there was a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate chunks in it. AT that point she threw the diaper. She thought it was the real thing! This was a memory maker, but dd didn't think it was much of a gift!

Babz said...

Worst gift would be from a co-worker acouple years ago. A Big Bright Orange Towel.

Celestina Marie said...

I can't think of a worst gift except maybe a box of socks, but that is still not too bad, since at the time we lived where it was so cold!!I really love everything I receive from my friends and family! Congrats on your 100th post and best wishes for 100 more!!
Love your blog banner!

Hi Jessi! Sign me up for that giveaway if you would!! My worst gift was when I was 17 and my step-grandmother gave me a Dancing Flower (an ugly stuffed flower that wiggles when someone claps near it!) My relatives kept trying to embarass me by clapping around it all night!
Anyway, congrats on your 100th post! hope you had a good Thanksgiving! xo natalea

Maija said...

The worst gift? There have been several over the years, but nothing in particular crosses my mind - I've just found the good in all of them.

Betsy said...

A box filled with an assortment of hotel shampoos, soap, and deodorant.

Melissa Markham said...

One year my hubby gave me a rechargeable battery charger and several rechargeable batteries. This was something he wanted. YUCK!

windycindy said...

Hello, First of all, congratulations on your 100th blog post! I can't remember ever getting a worse present! My husband isn't a romantic, so sometimes his gifts may be questionable! Thanks, Cindi

I honestly can't think of anything....... Congratulations on your 100th post!!! If you get a chance hop on over. I'm having my blogiversary giveaway too!

Krista said...

When I was younger my grandma used to buy my sister and I those "smelly", old lady looking, body wash, lotion sets.

Jeanne said...

Hey congratulations on your 100th post Jessi!!! Isn't it amazing how time flies by so quickly? I love your Blissful Elements banner too. She has such neat vintage images! OK, let's see - my worst gift was probably one of those big bars of Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate from my in-laws. That was all they gave me that year! And to top it off, I HATE dark chocolate!

Monica said...

hhhmmm the worst gift....
I assume it couldnt have been TERRIBLE because I cant really remember one. My hubby always gets me great stuff so it would have to be from someone else. I will say a few years in a row we received these made in OREGON gift boxes, with me not eating nuts and all that garb .it really was no fun for me!

jayedee said...

oh geesh! my adult son gave me a head scratching wizard one year. it was a battery operated wizard with 8 legs. you were supposed to put it on top of your head and turn it on. the worst of the worst in my opinion lol

Michelle Constantinescu said...

Last year for Christmas, my husband gave me a bag of organic flax seed. For real. I couldn't imagine what was in the heavy package! Imagine my disappointment to find 3 pounds of fiber. He thought it was hysterical, but I made him promise NO GROCERIES this year!!!

Congrats on your 100th post! I love coming here to see all that goes on!

Hmmm...I think the worst gift that I have received was a garlic clove peeler. When I opened I thought at first it was one of those chinese thumb torture thingys but then my aunt proclaimed (with my delight...after I put my thumbs in it) that it was a silconey, rubber thing that you pop a clove of garlic in and rub it and viola! instant clean garlic clove! I was stunned...I was 14! Never understood but oh well!

Anonymous said...

some sort of seashell animal from a sister-in-law. The thing was cheap and tacky.

blogged ya:

Angela said...

A winnie the pooh garden chime.. it was cute.. but very cheaply made and tacky!


I blogged ya

Amy A said...

Funny how as I was reading the comments I couldn't think of any bad gifts until the Winnie the Pooh reminded me that a co-worker gave me a pewter pooh brooch and a ceramic pooh magnet one year. I don't have any idea why she would think I would like it, or wear it. I thought for a LONG time what I do-say-wear-act that would make her think..."oh, Amy would LOVE this!" LOL! Now if it were!

Anyway, love a chance at your give away!

Clair said...

Can't think of a bad gift. Well...maybe candy from Mexico from my students. Not sweet enough for me.

Joy Zaczyk said...

Love your new blog header! :)

Worst present - a hand held vaccuum from my husband. Ugh. Lunch-bag letdown to say the least...

Jennifer said...

My husband gave me a scum buster on our first "married" christmas together. He wanted to make my shower cleaning "easier". 10 years later we still joke about it!

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

Congrats on your 100th post!
I cannot think of a "bad" gift..... I'm easily pleased I suppose!

Lori said...

congrats on your 100th post:) your giveaways are wonderful!!!

worst gift...hmmmmmmm...i can't think of anything right now, i might have to get back to you on this...

Renae said...

My step grandmother used to give us girls horrible gifts. Yucky smelling "old lady" bath products, huge bow hair clips....basically dollar store finds! The dreaded "ALTA Present" (That was her name). Every year we got these kind of gifts! We had to pretend to like them. :o)


Anonymous said...

The worst gift I ever got was the book Dancing With Cats! You really have to see the book to know how bad it really was!

Unknown said...

Maybe the disney story book when my dh and I had been going through infertilti treaments - it was just heartbreaking to get it

vivian said...

gosh.. theres been a few! I would have to say when my step father and mother sent a bag of hospital samples of lotions and shampoos, with a very cheesy looking 3 x 3 old mans lap blanket!
or a used blender! (also from them)
Happy 100th!!
I feel like I just started blogging here and Im up to 50 already.. I will have to do something for my 100th too!!
have a lovely day!

Anonymous said...

Ummmm....worst gift was a pair of used black leather boots and a whip...I am not kidding, this was during a white elephant exchange AT WORK! In front of 25 of my peers -- AND, the giver of said gift was a NUN in her previous occupation!

Love your banner and your cheerful posts...happy scrappin!

Sheila Rumney said...

The worst gift I ever got was a dust buster hand held vacuum. I think he was trying to tell me something!

Congrats Jessi!!!

Somewhere along the line my father got the idea I LOVED chocolate covered cherries, when the truth is I don't even like them! But, he thought it was really special to give them to me year after year for probably 30 years. I never told him that I didn't care for them. He passsed away this past summer, so the worst gift will be that I don't get that cellophane wrapped box of chocolate covered cherries this year. Sorry... I think I should have posted something funnier and actually it was funny all those years.I'll miss him and this gift this Christmas, but mostly it is a sweet memory.~dale

Cheryl Connell said...


Happy Hundred!
I cant think of too many bad gifts either, but I would have to say fruitcake.. I hate the stuff!
I guess I have been blessed in my gift receiving!

Hi Jessi!

Congrats on you 100th post!!

Okay, so, my worst gift?? One year at a company gift exchange, everyone was opening really nice gifts... chocolates, pretty ornaments, fancy bubble bath, gift certificates... I opened an industrial glue gun. hmmm.

Well, I did use it though, so I guess I can't complain!!


just lisa said...

My grandfather, then 81, bought me a thigh master by Suzanne Sommers! I was shocked, embarrassed and we all laughed hysterically that he would give that kind of gift. He said he was only trying to help. Talk about honesty! Thanks Poppy!

houseofeling said...

I got a most ugly sweater from my mother-in-law, while she was still my "boyfriends mother", so I felt I had to wear sad. I would love to win a sign, so cute!

Anonymous said...

Congrats on your 100th post, dear sweet Jessi! So my worst gift? I was on a bowling league and at Christmas we did a gift exchange. I ALWAYS got the worst gift...some kind of bowling karma, I guess. The worst of the worst was a small lunch sack filled with what looked like someone unloading all their old "trial size" foods. Unbelievable! :-)

Oh and thank you thank you thank YOU for the sweety bag of glitter you gave to all us Bellas! What a very lovely thing to do, Jessi.

Hugs and Happy Holidays,

The wrong size sweater...

Congrats on your 100th post Jessi.

I must be really lucky as I cannot think of one thing I've received that I haven't enjoyed... it's really got me scratching my head trying to remember!!

Hi Jessi,
I received the worst gift ever and it came 9 months after my son was born and it came from my husband; he got me one of those horrible 1970's exercizers that hook onto a doorknob and you attach each rope to your appendages (legs and hands) and then you pull them and they are supposed to turn you into a hard body. That was my "good" gift in 1976 and I went into the bathroom and I cried and cried for hours. I never let him know how badly it hurt my feelings.

Oh, my sister in law for 3 years in a row would buy me big gold HOOP EAR-RINGS and I am allergic to gold and it makes my ears swell up and I break out in hives so every year I would tell her I was allergic to them and she would keep the ear-rings and also the gift I gave her. She always said "I will get you something later to replace the ear-rings" BUT, she never did.

Guess what my sister in law's favorite ear-rings are:
Huge, hoop ear-rings!!!

Enter me in your giveaway please.
:) Bren

Diana S said...

We had a family ornament swap instead of doing big gifts for the adults. I searched for days and hundreds of stores to get the perfect ornament for the name I picked. My sister-in-law had my name and gave me a 10cent plastic ornament. I was sooooo disappointed.

Renee said...

My grandma send me & each of my girls & husband $5 each when she can afford more...she says I should be able to get something nice...that can't even get me 2 gallons of gas! ;)Renee
PS-Congrats on yout 100 posting!

Alison Gibbs said...

Mmmmmm let me think, the worst gift ever would have to be a dustbuster. Gifts are meant to be fun not work!!

FrostingsNSparkles said...

I almost missed this! Yahoo!!!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Hi! Love your blog! Found it thru Ele's!

Worst gift ever? Only once did I NOT like something. My dear grandmother crocheted me a red shawl when I was about 20 & I WAS NOT a shawl type of girl! But I kept it, realizing how much work & love she put into it. Like you, I turned it into something I love ~ I use it EVERY Christmas as a tree skirt on one of my smaller trees! I cherish it!

Worst gift: that sugary jelly candy. Yikes. No one wants to unwrap that.
