  24. Eleven years ago when we were first dating, I put a lot of thought in to his gifts. I couldn't wait to see what he would give me and when I opened up a gray sweatshirt I was disappointed. I still have that sweatshirt and were it when it is chilly. He always teases me that it was a great "practical" gift. Thankfully, his gifts improved over the years!

  27. Most of my awful gifts come from my father in law. He tends to buy things based on my sister in laws taste, which is the complete opposite of mine. I usually smile and wear/ use whatever just so I don't hurt his feeling, but this year I was given some of the worst gifts ever. The one gift I really liked where a pair of leather glove, but my husband and I discovered they were 2 different colors when we were in full light.
