Have you ever had somebody give you something for Christmas which was extraordinary or strange or annoying? When I was so much younger, my brother gave me a pack of sanitary napkins for Christmas. That was the very first gift that he has ever given me. I wasn't sure how to react - to smile or cry.Until this day, I have never forgotten that gift. How about you?

omg how old was he? and how old were you for that matter? how embarrassing, and i must admit that has got to be the single most unusual gift ive heard of! ive never gotten anything remotly like that. i got the worlds ugliest pair of socks once but still, thats not on par with sanitary napkins!

Well, that's really weird especially if everybodys got to see the gift. I don't know if the gift i had received once is strange but for my colleagues it was weird. It was an exchange gift moment during the office Christmas party and I got a drinking straw holder with straw in it. The others in the party commented if I was going to put up a snack bar or restaurant for that matter. It was okay for me because I don't count the gift but the thought really and it was really funny though and all the comments were funny too. At least it made the day more fun
