The Best Christmas present I’ve ever Received

Since yesterday I posted about the worst Christmas gift I received, I figured I would counter back with the best Christmas gift I ever received. I have received so many amazing presents throughout the years so it was hard to pinpoint only one, but this gift was amazing and hilarious so let’s get started

Every year my aunt would tell me I was going to get an ugly Christmas sweater. I would sort of get excited because… let’s be honest, they’re pretty hilarious. Anyway, every year I would open presents and there would never be an ugly Christmas sweater in any box from her I had opened.

2 years ago, my aunt went around with the same ‘You’re getting an ugly Christmas sweater” and told me it was really bad; really, really bad. Naturally, since she had told me this for the past 6 or so years, I didn’t believe her and moved on.

Christmas Eve came and we were opening some presents after dinner, after passing out all of the presents, I took a seat in front of my gifts and began to open them. As I reached the red wrapped rectangle box from my aunt, I tore open the wrapping paper, opened the box and lo and behold was an ugly Christmas sweater, handmade by my aunt and uncle.

shocked doesn’t begin to describe it

They spent like 4 hours making this ugly sweater adorned with bells, reindeer, googly eyes (conveniently placed on my boobs) and so much more for me to wear the next day. My aunt was so pleased with herself for finally getting me a sweater and it was super cool to finally have one and a handmade sweater at that.

The Worst Christmas Present I’ve ever Received

Hi everyone, still going strong with Blogmas. Now, I don’t like to be rude and I accept all of my presents with the utmost appreciation and thanks. Anyone who spends the time to go out of their way and buy/make me a present is so amazing and I am truly thankful. However, there have been some gifts I have received where I was like ‘What in the world is this/ why am I receiving it?’

The most memorable example of this was last Christmas. Every year we go to my grandpa’s house the weekend before or after Christmas to exchange gifts with that side of the family but my dad’s borther and family are never in attendance, but their gifts are.

Typically we get a Target gift card and some candy and call it a day. Last year, however, instead of a neatly wrapped bag of candy with a giftcard attached to the ribbon, there was an abnormally heavy gift bag. I was so weirded out because it was so out of the ordinary.

I opened the bag, and there was a heaping bag of bird seed (it ended up being granola but it looked like a bag that I have purchased for my bird before) wrapped up in white tissue paper. My sister and I both got this bird seed granola mix thing and we were both confused as to why we got it and it tasted terrible and stale. Needless to say, that went straight to the garbage once we got home.

It wasn’t the worst thing we could’ve received but it did taste like garbage and who gifts granola?

Until tomorrow
