    I've been talking to Buttlight about "Poutines", gee for the last 2 years, so I decided to send her 2 cans of Poutine gravy by mail.

    Bon App├ętit my dear !!!


  • ButtLight

    Thank you!!!! Cant wait!

    Actually, its funny, but I think the most original gift I ever gave was to you also..........The frienship poem in a blue bottle!!

    Looked something like this

    I'm sure you'll appreciate the french and english watchtower and awake magazines I inserted in the box so that the cans won't hit each other.

    You could use them whenever you run out of toilet paper too.

    Enjoy your pooptin gravy

    How about most labor intensive.

    A few years ago I punched out a sociology textbook of about 300 pages into Grade 1 Braille. Yup Grade 1 Braille means every single letter one by one using a small slate and a pen. It was only after I was done and gave it to him that I learned there was a Grade 2 Braille that has many contractions for common letters and words

    Oh yeah most original

    Cuddle blankets - small blankets for babies, just big enough for them to hold. And no 2 are alike My grandson calls them his kiki and refuses to go to bed without one

    I've also done cuddle blankets for adults - just big enough to throw over your lap or feet

    And the one-of-a-kind wedding tablecloths with the name of the bride and groom and the wedding date crocheted into the pattern

    It's extreemly rare that me giving a gift (I don't remember me giving more than 2 or 3 gifts in my life)
    (my son excluded in the equation)

    but it was a rose for my boyfriend (he liked it) - that's about 13 or 14 years ago

    For me and my (now) wife's first Valentine's day, I gave her a spatula. I hate Valentine's day.

    For a friend's birthday, I gave him a card that said "Congratulations on your new baby girl". Perhaps that was a sign of things to come, since he now has two girls :)

    I don't think I ever gave someone an unusual gift, but I received one once. When I was in my early twenties I worked in a dirty, greasy machine shop, and it was a rough crowd I worked with. My girlfriend at the time sent me flowers - TO MY WORKPLACE!!! One of my coworkers put them on the headstock of my lathe, and I got razzed for weeks.

    Now I wish I had a picture of them on my lathe. It was quite a sight.

    I was never one to go out and seek a gift for a certain someone...lol. I always just give cash. How boring right?

    However, for Buttlight's B-day(next month), this will be a different story. *pondering*

    The absolute worst gift: I would have to say, when I went out and purchased a STL Cardinals t-shirt. I didn't even want to take it home, much less give it to the idiot(lol). I still cringe of the idea - stooping to that level sickens me!

    When I was a teenager, a boy gave me crystallized ammonia and a bullet necklace.
