Blank calendar?

I was reading some posts recently about the worst Christmas gift you ever received. I have had to really think back because there aren't a lot of gifts that really stand out to me one way or the other. I really enjoy giving more than receiving and my favorite memories of Christmas are of the time spent with my family playing games and things. I have, however, received some pretty unusual gifts that I think are worth mentioning. My mother-in-law always tries to have a kind of theme or meaning behind her gifts. So what was the meaning when I got some shampoo and conditioner? Not even nice shampoo, the cheapest brand you can buy. Uh, thanks! Also, one year she got me a calendar that you have to fill in. I don't mean the kind you can put your own pictures on- I mean the kind that you have to actually fill the dates in for each month. Isn't that kind of the point of calendars? That you don't have to sit down and fill them out? One year when I was a teenager my great aunt bought my brother and sister candy and I got a toothbrush. What is that about? What are you people trying to tell me?

What was your worst/funniest Christmas present ever?

I got a fake cabbage patch doll named Sally one year for Hannukkah.... They'd run out of the real ones!
