I like to buy oddball, but nice gifts, for people but I can get it wrong.

I bought SIL this watercolour for xmas which DH says isn't very nice and grolly. I like it and think its pretty inoffensive. I thinking more thoughtful than bubble bath.

Would you like this as a gift?

She's forty and pretty middle of the road.

Sorry. Not my cup of tea. Looks like an M&S notelet.

It's a bit pink

I hate it, and if I was given it, would take it straight to the charity shop on 27/12.

Isn't there even some antiquated charm?

I'd be sticking that on the "awful Christmas presents' thread.
And I'd probably win.

Not my cup of tea, I have to say - but maybe it looks better in full size? (Trying to be constructive...grin)

Artsmanouvre Sat 19-Dec-15 15:44:17

Im really upset...

Sympathy vote?

Russellgroupserf Sat 19-Dec-15 15:46:30

It is dire, sorry op.

Artsmanouvre Sat 19-Dec-15 15:47:01

Flounces off

FannyFifer Sat 19-Dec-15 15:47:32

My granny would even think it was too twee & old fashioned.

At least you have time to find something else.

TheWatchersCouncil Sat 19-Dec-15 15:48:57

14" X 12"???? Missed that bit....
(Clutches at straws that badbad is your SIL)

Wouldn't have it on my wall, but that's not really relevant. Does she have stuff like that on her wall?

Queenbean Sat 19-Dec-15 15:49:33

It's horrible

It's the kind of thing you see when you go to look at a house that has belonged in the house of a 90year old woman who has just died. Along with one of those pink eiderdowns, an avocado bathroom suite and a dolly with a frilly skirt covering the toilet roll.

TheWatchersCouncil Sat 19-Dec-15 15:49:35

Oops. 14x16. Gets worse....

Artsmanouvre Sat 19-Dec-15 15:51:59

I have one of those dolly toilet roll!

Salmotrutta Sat 19-Dec-15 15:56:19

It's not to my taste but then I'm not your SIL.

Does she like that sort of art?
