So, my 40th is on 2nd April (in 4 days, right in the middle of Summit) and it got me to thinking about odd birthday and Christmas presents (why wouldn't it).
The sort of thing you look at and make this kind of face:
But you rally, you smile and accept them, and make sure that you use the item when the gift-giver is over and can see you using them, that kind of thing.
But then there are the odd presents that turn out to be fantastic, and if they hadn't bought them for you, you'd never have known you needed them.
For example, Mother bought me these for Christmas:
I didn't know I needed these, but boy are they useful! (adulting perfected, right there!)
So, come on, what's the oddest present you've ever had, or the thing that someone bought you that you never knew existed and that you'd never have thought of?
