We give a lot of stupid gifts in my family that are just a waste of money. Although I don't anymore; I'm done with gift giving. We (brother and sister) are all almost 50 freaking years old. How many 50 year olds still give gifts to their siblings? My mom stopped w/her siblings when they were 30. Don't think my dad/siblings ever gave gifts as adults. I wish we would stop with the damn stupid waste of money gifts already. If I want something, I'll go buy it. And I don't want some random piece of crap cluttering up my already limited space.
That said ... the worst gift was a half used bottle of vitamins (yes, half used!) from my mom for Christmas. She said maybe they would make me a nicer/happier person.
