  1. A bag of lollies from Coles that I’d had in the cupboard for weeks because I was really sick and couldn’t go to the shops and didn’t want him to go without

  2. This brings back nightmares!! I thought it would be funny/quirky and cute to get a framed picture made saying “I would do anything for love and I WOULD do that”. Sweet huh? Until he tells me ‘that’ is cheating! I couldnt find a rock to hide behind fast enough!

  3. I bought him a beret and pressured him to wear it while we were grocery shopping. I cannot even give you a reasonable explanation WHY I chose that. He wasn’t French. We didn’t last long after that.

  4. The year I moved out of home my mother gave me a toilet brush and toilet cleaner for Christmas. I guess my throne wasn’t up to her standards. A crappy gift but these days my loo is sparkling clean, thanks Mum!

  5. I gave him a Dyson vacuum cleaner (just like I’d always wanted). Seemed fair seeing he gave me a chainsaw last year!

  6. DVDs are my favourite present to get, I ask family members for a movie that they loved. My brother loves a good prank, in 2014 he gave me The Human Centipede on DVD, last year it was The Human Centipede 2. I wonder what’s in my stocking this year….

  7. My husband complained about my cooking so I bought him a cookbook. He used it to light the bbq.
    Tried to sign up to newsletter, but no pop up for me 🙁

  8. HE was shocked I’d bought him an “empty box”
    But I’m much more thoughtful than that…
    I was trying to care for his pride and joy
    His favourite Akubra hat!!!

  9. Years ago I gave my husband a pedometer. He opened it while at work offshore. Apparently it had an inbuilt attack alarm which went off as he unwrapped it. It just wouldn’t shut up so he had to throw it overboard.

  10. My Mum once bought my non-handy hubby screwdrivers for a gift. I don’t think he’s used them once! He is more brains, than brawn.

  11. I knitted hubby a scarf in his favourite team colours. It was my first knitting project an boy, did it show! It was about 15 feet long and full of holes from dropped stitches! The bad part is that I made my hubby wear it! poor guy!
