    A Lego Box With No Legos

    From Reddit u/Schnabelverstaerker:

    My grandma's sister once got me a Lego box filled with advertising brochures saying that I was too old for Lego and that I better practice reading.

    She gave the Lego to her own grandchildren, by the way.

    From Reddit u/drunkenmonk693:

    Funnels. A few years back, we were celebrating at my in-laws and my wife's sister had been on a sewing kick. She made nice fleece blankets each with different designs. Everyone was super happy with theirs, and then it came to me. She handed me a plastic shopping bag and inside were 2 little plastic funnels.

    With a big sh*t eating grin she looks at me and says, "You like cooking right?" I would have preferred nothing at all. Being forgotten is better than having to swallow that in front of family.

    Three Individual Socks

    From Reddit u/HotCrustyBuns:

    Three individual socks. For my birthday in February, I received three more socks to complete what I assume was the pack of three pair.

    These came from my aunt and uncle, who regularly take six-week vacations around the globe.

    A Pair Of Jeans In The Wrong Size

    From Reddit u/Sumo_Cerebro:

    Grandma got me a pair a jeans that were way too small with a card that read, "Lose some weight, then maybe you will fit into these."

    I was beyond furious, and our relationship was never the same. I didn't shed a tear when she passed away.

    Baby Clothes

    From Reddit u/MerylSquirrel:

    Baby clothes. I wasn't pregnant, wasn't trying to be pregnant, had no children, and was quite slim so there's no chance I even looked like maybe I was pregnant.

    Never plucked up the courage to ask for an explanation.
