What is the strangest gift you have ever received?

When I turned forty, a friend gave me an angel statue for my garden. I was so upset by it, but never showed that. I reminded me of a grave, I didn't like turning forty.
One Christmas I was given a wind-up salt and pepper, never used it for obvious reasons.

Have you ever been given a strange gift?

Re: What is the strangest gift you have ever received?

When I worked in a boarding school the girls often gave the house staff gifts when they left .
One year we all received handbags made of snakeskin, they smelt horrible and seem to have a large amount of the snake clinging to the inside of the bag

Heaven knows how they got them through customs.

Ooh, that would make me cringe Meg.
What did you do with it - No don't say.

Re: What is the strangest gift you have ever received?

For my 50th birthday my two stepdaughters bought me fifty bottles of real ale, all different. Strange but very welcome

Every Christmas I always get presents with the slogan "Grumpy Grandad", which I've become used to by now.

I'm always nice to the grandkids, Sweetie. I think it's because the word 'grandad' sort of goes with 'grumpy' I guess. "Gorgeous Grandad" sounds better

Walking salt and pepper pots? No thanks, doesn't really float my boat

The acre plot of land on Mars, which my daughter gave me as a birthday present, is fairly unusual.
