worst was, for 3 sucessive years, was aftershave, not a lot of use for someone with a beard.. and it was from step-son and family, so not as though they didn't know.

Best - Atari games console (between me and my sister, back in the 70s)
Worst - Set of towels from (now ex) husband - when I explained my disappointment (at lack of romance etc etc) he said, with genuine incredulity, "but they are matching" (each other, yes, but not matching anything else in the house!)

Pair of slippers size 3... I'm a size 6. Also aftershave.. I'm a girl! Thought my sister was trying to say that I looked like a man but she had just picked up the wrong bottle!

Best - this year's - my Dad is coming over! Very excited, it's been a horrid year
Worst - a blank VHS cassette. Given to me way after I got rid of the VHS player!
