weird birthday gifts

I have definitely received a lot of weird birthday gifts in my day, but the one I received a few months ago for my 22nd birthday really stands out in my mind. I had just gotten home from a trip to California and my parents had invited me over to celebrate my birthday with them. I opened a few little presents that didn’t raise any questions, and then I reached for the last. It ended up being an entire gift bag full of little wooden pegs with a note that said “More to come…”. My mom would not explain to me for weeks what all the little pegs were for. She literally was delighted by the fact that it made me wonder. Well, I came home one day after not being there for a couple of weeks and there all the little pegs were, attached to a peg board. My dad had made me a peg board because he thought I should start accumulating tools to hang on it incase I “ever needed to do repairs to my new apartment.” This is one of those times when I just had no idea what my parents were thinking. The peg board is still sitting against the wall in my room. I have no idea what I am going to use it for, but I assured my parents, of course, that I loved their funny birthday gifts!

Crickets!

Crickets!

My father used to eat anything, he would try all types of food from all over the world. When I was 11, for his 47th birthday we gave him a little box of edible salted crickets, we all tried them, and they weren't half- bad!

Juli, thanks for that funny birthday gift idea. A really 'tasty' one that! lol

My Funny Birthday Gift - An Inner Tube!!!

The funniest birthday gift I've ever received was an inner tube. While this may seem like an excellent gift, there is a funny story behind it. One summer, I was visiting my cousins in Florida. It was a stormy summer day, so my aunt decided to take us to an indoor waterpark. It was the kind of place that had a pool, splash park and lots of water rides, including a lazy river ride. After a couple of hours of trying out all of the rides, my cousins decided that they wanted to go swimming and I decided I wanted to go back on the lazy river ride. The first time I had gone through, I had felt relaxed and I was looking for another peaceful moment in my busy day. After getting only partway through the lazy river ride on my own, I got knocked off my tube because some kids were being rowdy and hitting the other people in tubes. While I was trying to get back to my tube, I was thrown to the side of the pool and broke my tailbone. For the rest of my day, my cousins couldn't stop laughing. I got my inner tube back, all right -- as a donut that I had to sit on for weeks! They made fun of me at every opportunity, and I vowed never to return to the water park again. Ten years later, when we were grown up, one of my cousins gave me the inner tube. Now I'll never be without one. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the tube, but it's pretty standard.

Funny Birthday Gift Typhoid Tablets!

I am writing about the funny gift I had received 17 years ago. This funny incident happened during my medical college days. I was in my third year of medical study. My birthday is in the month of May. Our final examinations were about to begin. But all of a sudden I fell ill and was diagnosed as having typhoid. It was very difficult for me to stay in the hostel and study. My roommates and friends cooperated and helped me a lot. In between the examinations was my birthday. Our classmates especially the boys came to the ladies hostel in the evening to celebrate my birthday. I was excited that they had come to wish me. They handed me a birthday card and a gift .On the gift in bold letters were written “WE ARE FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH CARE”. We cut the birthday cake that was brought by my roommates and enjoyed the evening without giving much thought to our next exams. After my classmates went off, my roommates decided that I should open the gifts one by one. I started opening all the gifts and finally the “handle with care” gift was opened. And it was a funny unique gift. My friends had put half a dozen eggs, tablets for typhoid, Vitamin C and iron tablets in a cardboard box. My roommates could not control their laughter thinking it to be an expensive glass item as a gift, which was wrapped up nicely. Seeing all this I was angry but laughed at what they had given. Seventeen years have passed but still this funny birthday gift incident has remained etched in my memory. Today when I think about the incident I laugh a lot.

40th birthday funny gift

The funniest birthday gift I have ever given was to my brother. When we were teenagers we went in together to buy a used car. We ended up purchasing a 1968 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The car turned out to be a nightmare. We put 10 times more money into the car to keep it running than we paid for it. For his 40th birthday I gave him a framed original print ad for the exact same car had owned. He must have laughed for 5 minutes. He now proudly displays the ad above his work desk.

Weird gift from my brother

by Trisha

A weird gift I received was for my 23rd birthday. My brother didn’t have a lot of money so he tried to make a gift for me. This might have worked better if he was not 30 years old! He printed out a picture of an older rock star and bought a make-your-own clock kit. While he was putting the clock together, he punctured the picture and made a very noticeable hole on the face of the frame. However, this did not stop my brother from giving me this gift. When I politely pointed out the giant hole, he shrugged his shoulders and said, “I know, that happened when I was putting it together” and then acted like nothing was wrong. My mother told me that I should act gracious so I thanked my brother for the broken clock and brought it home. When I brought it in the house, I left it in a box with my other gifts until I decided what to do with it. That night, the clock with the hole in it made such a loud “tick-tock-tick-tock” noise that I had to go all the way downstairs, open a cabinet, stuff it in a pan and put a lid over it just so that I could fall back asleep. The next day, I threw it out in a dumpster near work.

Gold Medal for crappy birthday gifts!

What is the funniest gift you have received? Well that is an easy question for me, my grandmother takes the cake, the medal of gold for crappy presents, in the family and quite arguably in the world, well that is a bit exaggerated, two years running I got pink sweatshirts about 3 sizes to big, seriously, I love pink clothing but I would never wear sweatshirts especially over sized ones than she got me a pillow made from a pre printed pillow pattern, you know those pattern's printed on fabric, you just cut it out, sew the sides, and stuff it, well she put a deer on it, Rudolph the red nose reindeer to be precise, and it was not even Christmas, well I guess she try to make up for that so on Christmas I got the same exact thing, think she has a lot of imagination, and she like to channel that on the gifts she gives, however, her imagination is not always on track with the seasons or the phase in people's life. When I was in college the same one she went to and teach in, and knew we only had showers, no bathtub in the dorms. Well she gave some bubble bath basket gift set, more like five of those, I was like awesome now I just need to graduate to finally take a bubble bath, that was really funny, she always complain that kids today cannot appreciate a good artistic gift, I'm thinking neither does she, but in the end I guess the intention is what really matters.
