My M.I.L had dreadful taste in presents so I can honestly say every single one that she ever bought me. Usually from a jumble sale or charity shop. It was always a joke in our family who got the worse birthday or christmas presents.

Love and Peace

I just had to add to this,

My best birthday present? well not quite but I liked it had a nice sweater, slippers, chocs, perfume, and a book,
my worse present was 6 weeks later at Christmas when he gave me identical presents.

Later on Christmas morning he looked at me and said
" you don't seem to like your christmas presents" my reply
" well you bought me exactly the same things for my birthday "
and he then said
" Well you liked them then"
he never could understand why i hated them and him at that moment,
