We've all got a horror story about the time our mom gave us a box filled with tampons and a training bra in front of our entire family that one Christmas, or the time our new boyfriend gave us a membership to an S&M club, or, worse still, diet pills. In honor of the worst gifts we, the Outblush staff, have ever received, we present a special holiday edition of Doubtblush: Wreck the Halls, where we'll tell you the stories of the most awful gifts we've gotten, and find a modern counterpart to it.... You know, just in case you've got a White Elephant party coming up.
MP here: I am a single woman. In no way am I close to heading down any aisle - OK, maybe the liquor one. Receiving the Bride and Groom Bears Desk Clock ($30) was a rather unveiled reminder of my mother's desire for my marital bliss and subsequent grandchildren. Next time, I'd prefer the subtle hint. Thanks Mom!
