What's the weirdest Christmas present you've ever bought?

I don't know what made me think of this today, but I think the strangest thing I ever had to buy was a plastic bone for a stuffed dog. Last Christmas, when anyone asked Evan what he wanted Santa to bring him, the answer was "a new bone for Buck." I thought this would wear off at some point, but lo and behold, I found myself in Giant a couple of days before Christmas buying a pack of nylon bones for Buck. And Evan was thrilled...he carried a bone around with Buck for a good couple of months (eventually we had to make them disappear because Cole kept getting hold of them and chewing on them).

So, what's the weirdest gift you've had to buy?


  1. You mean it wasn't the turkey baster for me? Ahh, how times have changed.

    Interesting question... I will have to think about it.

    Although if you see a pink polar bear that dances like "this" and has eyes that wiggle please let me know.

  2. The turkey baster is up there.... I'd really have to think about it.
