I think I have won this year. I fail to believe DH can buy me anything that will trump the Angling DVD I have just purchased for him in Poundland. Picture on my profile.

We don't

but if I see that DVD when I'm next in Poundland, we may start

No - but sounds like a good game....

No but last year I somehow ended up with a Dr Who fun trivia diary (aimed at around 10 year olds), it came free with something. My Dad loves Dr Who but not this particular item but I wrapped it up and gave it to him as a joke.

It then mysteriously kept appearing in drawers in my house and I would then take it back and hide it at my parents house. This culminated in one day leaving after Sunday lunch, they went inside the house, I quickly ran back and posted it through their letterbox but they had anticipated it and tried to shove it back through crying "noooo!". Need to buy him another one as I think it has got lost....

Not quite, but we had a box of Iceland Irish Cream Liqueurs that did the rounds for a few years. My Uncle won the prize for the most original recycling of them - he sent them with my cousin as the pantomime sweets grin

for 7 whole years we managed to regift amongst the family -inlaws- a only fools and horses aftershave and medallion set, at xmas & birthdays. It got to the point where it would be recognised under the tree and labels sneakily swapped grin.

It ended when one relly drank the aftershave for a bed <boak>.

My MIL, only everyone failed to tell me of the shite lovely tradition. Imagine my delight when I opened a cheap shit bra in front of DH's family and their expectant faces waiting to see my reaction. Oh how we all laughed together hmm.

We'd only been together for 6 months when she did it, and as they live overseas, it was the first time I'd met them all. I still don't understand what the silly cow was thinking!

I once bought my Brother in law a 'hands free mobile phone kit'. It was a giant elastic band to put round your head and hold the phone to your ear while you were driving.grin
