Casino Listings HOLIDAY Contest: Win 100 CL Chips (Ends January 1, 2014)

65 replies • Last post

Hello Casino Listings Members!

Announcing our contest for the month of December!

The theme this month is the holidays/Christmas. 'Tis the season, Friends! Smile

And the subject is: GIFTS!

Here is all you have to do to enter.

1. Describe the funniest, strangest, most inappropriate, most useless,
bizarre, OR the most appropriate, thoughtful, sentimental, special CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY gift you have
ever received OR given.

Tell us:
1) What was the gift? Please describe: details, details, details! (For example, was there
a gag involved or was it an unintentional, innocent blunder?)
2) Who gave and received the gift (names CAN be changed to protect
the innocent or embarrassed, if need be)
3)What was the gift the most inappropriate or strange or useless OR
why was the gift extra-special, thoughtful, or appropriate?

Tell us your "gift story," and be as funny, creative, OR as sentimental,
or touching as you can.

But we don't want to hear about just any old gift, we want those SPECIAL, FUNNY, and FUN stories, okay?

I do suggest you post throughout the month, not post a ton of stories in a row, because spreading our stories out a bit will keep the contest thread more active and interesting if we see a few posts each week of December, instead of a bunch at once. Of course it is up to you, this is just a friendly suggestion to keep the contest thread going throughout the month of December. Smile

Enter up to 7X EACH! You are welcome to share more
gift stories if you have them, just know only the first seven will be
included as entries for the contest. Winner will be chosen by random
generator on or about January 1, 2014, and will receive a whopping
100 CL Chips!

Any Questions? PM Hope777

I have this aunt who is notorious in our family for giving people the worst gifts. She means well but she has no idea. Some of my cousins have a tradition that they all get dressed up in or use the things she would give them after she had gone home to see who could look the most ridiculous.

Over the years she has given me ugly clothes, waaay oversized clothes, gifts suitable for a child when I was a grown adult, ugly tissue box covers, decorative plates that look like they were painted by a blind man and so on. Probably the one that stands out the most was the time she gave me and my brother and cousins all a Pop Swatch watch each and at the time I was in my mid 20s. Not only are those things meant for children, not only are they are hideously ugly, but I am pretty sure they had stopped making them years before she gave them to us so goodness only knows where she found them.

I gave my dad a little gag slot machine. When he pulled the lever it squirted him in the face with water. lol He liked the gift, and on the first spin he got a shot of water. haha He tried to spin it again (I don't think he got that it was a gag gift yet) and he broke the handle off of it. It was still worth buying it though.

That is funny that he broke the handle off,and it sounds like a great gag gift! I have never seen one of those before. Thanks for sharing! Smile

My mom's sister was like that, and it puzzled me, because with everything else (compared to my mom and many older people) she was really "with the times." She knew a lot about pop culture, etc., and loved watching Sat Night Live, and was a very intelligent and FUN woman, but when it came to gits for my sons she could not get it in her head they were growing up. I remember one year they received action figures when they were way beyond that "stage." I remember them talking about it and laughing. But it was only for a few years she did that, not as many inappropriate gifts as your aunt gave to you and your brother and cousins. lol Must be something about aunts? lol

And the awkward part is if you open in front of her, you have to pretend to just love it and say "thank you" with at least some sense of sincerity. lol

Our tradition at Christmas was to take turns watching as each person opened their gift. This worked ok until the family got so big that opening presents took a long time. It became more of a chore than fun for the kids

My then husband's grandmother always bought the youngest granddaughter (his sister) underwear each year. I have no idea why. She continued to do this until Amy was in her 20's. Underwear is not the best gift to receive unless maybe it's from Victoria's Secret or some other nice place, but Amy received grandma underwear, the ones that come up past the waist. lol I always wondered what she did with that stuff.

Oh my gosh, that is so funny, LuckyMe! lol

I have gotten my sons boxers, because they always need boxers and socks, but that is usually a stocking stuffer so it won't be something they have to open in front of anyone. One year we got my brother a pair of funny Christmas boxers, and I remember my little nephews giggling, because someone got underwear for Christmas, lol.

I don't think I have ever received "granny panties" as a gift. At least not yet, anyway, lol! I don't know Smile Tongue

Hope, I know you know this, but to the others....... I had two labs. I lost them both within the last couple of years. They were both 13 years old a few months old when I lost them. Both had diabetes and problems with their hips. These dogs were like my kids, very loved and very missed. My sister gave me a gift of a music box (which I used to collect) with black labs on it. Still to this day, I can't listen to it without crying. Earlier that same year, my sister's 8 month old lab was hit by a car and killed. It was a special gift, because we had both lost dogs we loved.

Oh yes. Sometimes this really stretches the bounds of my very limited acting abilities! You know they mean well and you know you have to grin and say thanks but surely they must know when you can't hide that its a stinker.

LOL, CL-Ed

When my middle son was little, probably around three years old, I thought I had taught him (and my other two sons) well and to accept gifts graciously by saying thank you. My mom bought him the most adorable little blue sweater with a teddy bear face on the front. It was SO cute.

Well my middle son must have expected toys, because he threw the sweater down and said, "don't like that." OMGosh, was MY face red, even though I obviously had no control over what he said or did. lol We still tease him about that, but I did have a little talk with him later. lol

I have another gift story for you all.

My oldest son loved to Christmas shop. My dad would save change all year, then divide it up for my three to buy little gifts for people. They also saved some of their own money each year from their allowances.

My oldest was about five years old, and I was trying to start teaching him to keep secrets. I told him how it was nice for people to be surprised on Christmas Eve and not know what we get them ahead of time, blah, blah, blah.

So my oldest son wanted to choose socks for my brother Steven. He got him a nice package of socks, wrapped them up and put them under the tree. Trouble is, he just didn't quite understand the "secret" part yet. My brother called, and my son picked up the phone and said, "Hi Uncle Steven! I got you socks!" Literally the FIRST thing that came out of his mouth. He couldn't contain his excitement. lol

Did a Christmas secret pal for kids of members from another site I belong to.The girls were 18 and 20,so I got my own girls to pitch in and sent them a big box of things that they would love.Their mother asked for warm sox and told me which Avon fragrances they liked,so we got them sox,hats and scarves,and 2 or 3 sets of their fav frangrances We also threw in jewelry,and several bags of Chritmas candy.It cost a lot to ship both boxes to Pa,but it was fun for us.Didn't hear back from them for several months,then their mother told us that they didn't really like the gifts and felt like they were 12 years old again.LOL.She said that is why they didn't send thank you notes.So much for good intentions,even wnen you have a gift list.

My elderly neighbor wrapped up a roll of Scotch tape and 15 cents for me one time.Now that I am old and senile myself,[and poor],I can relate to her scentiments behind the gift.She was a lovely neighbor and so kind.

My sister in law and I have exchanged the same Christmas card since 1980.It goes back and forth between our houses and we always write something funny or silly on it,saying how poor we are and can't afford to send anything except the card.I look forward to this card every year and it is the best gift ever.This year she even sent me a stamp so I could return it.What fun we have had over the years.Our card is really getting filled up so maybe have to start out with a clean card soon.

That is a great story and awesome tradition. You reminded me of something I completely forgot about. For about five years, a friend of mine and I would wrap up the same God-awful ugly flamingo sweater, lol. Sometimes i would get it for my bday, then give it back to her for Christmas, or some years we would give it back to whoever had it just on Christmas. We always wrapped it up as if it would be a complete surprise. lol I fell out of touch with this friend, then got back in touch briefly, but now she has disappeared from my life again. We had a lot of good laughts together through the years, and I miss her very much.

Wildgerri, The music box plays Stand by Me, which my Max did often. If I was in pain he was right there with me. He always knew when I was sick or didn't feel well.

My brother and I use to do the same thing you did with the Christmas card, but it was with a birthday card. We did it for several years until he lost it. We were both sad about it, but we had so much fun writing back and forth, teasing each other. It is a fond memory that we shared.

Wow that is just wrong. I have a friend who is such a thoughtful gift-giver. Her nieces stopped thanking her, so she stopped buying for them. If people can't take the time to bother to thank someone or act that ungrateful, they truly do not deserve anything at all.

Many years ago, when my dad was still alive, he started something (and I am still not sure how it all started, lol) where one person was chosen each Christmas to receive a "gag gift." He named the sender, "Mrs. Google," lol, and again, don't ask me where he picked that name, it was long before "Google" as we know it. Knowing there was a gift under the tree from Mrs. Google each year, and wondering who she would choose on a given year, secretly worrying WE might e the one chosen truly added to the fun and excitement to the season. The reason for the slight anxiety is although Mrs. Google always brought funny gifts, often those funny gifts were also embarrassing and sometimes of a personal nature. lol

A few examples of Mrs. Google gifts:

One year my ex-husband had surgery to have a huge polyp removed from his nose, because it was causing severe headaches. Mrs. Google found a tshirt with a HUGE nose on the front, and big letters across the shirt that said, "NOSE JOB."

One year my little grandma, who was tiny but with an ample bust, received the biggest bra I had ever seen in my life, complete with one balloon in each humongous cup. She laughed until she cried. lol

My SIL received an Easy Bake Oven, because Mrs. Google found out that she had never received one as a child.

One year, when I was a child, I had swallowed a marble. Mrs. Google brought me a giant, old antique marble with a string tied around it so I could pull it back out if I should decide to swallow any more marbles.

One Google gift that was especially memorable and talked about was one I do not remember, but it was repeated every year. When my brother was a child (my brothers are all older than me) he absolutely HATED sardines. So, of course, Mrs. Google brought him a tin of sardines. His reaction was priceless, as he cried and said, "You have ruined my entire Christmas!" I am sure that is not the reaction Mrs. Google was seeking. lol

I will post a few more "Googles" as I remember them. I wish I had kept a list each year, because some were just priceless. I have been the instigator (usually with the help of one of my SILs) for some recent ones, because now that dad is no longer with us, we keep his tradition going. I have NO IDEA what is going to happen this year. No one is talking about it. Which is making ME a bit nervous. lol

I love this. I wonder if you could find a new print of the exact same card when the space is filled.

And hope, it sounds like your dad was ahead of his time with Mrs Google. Maybe you can find a sleazy lawyer who can convince a judge that part of Google's fortune belongs to your family!

Hope, I really enjoyed hearing about Mrs. Google.

My ex sister-in-law liked to make finding someone's gift fun and a lot of work. She would wrap up a box then put a note in it to look behind the couch or some other place. When that box was found it might have instructions to go to the basement and find a box in the washer or hidden someplace else. This could go on for 15 minutes or so. Sometimes she would have a box inside a box inside a box. It really was a lot of work for her to go to, but did make finding the gift fun, but sometimes a workout too.

Love all your ideas and comments.Of course,Lucky and Hope,I am not sending that family any more gifts and if I get them in secret pal I will ask for someone else.Thankfully,they have left the site I belong to.
I almost forgot about the best gift [and most thoughtful] I ever received.A dear,close friend on that same site sent me a Christmas card in a secret pal box,filled with lovely gifts.She probably never knew how much that card meant to me.She knew I was a movie buff,and my card plays,"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," sung by Judy Garland.I found my card in my Christmas decorations the other day and when I opened it,the tears flowed.I am so sentimental and I just love that old card.

I think the worst gift I ever got was a green cheap ass Kmart sweater back in the 1970's. It was given to me by my then husband's grandmother. I only met her a couple of times and she didn't seem very nice. My sister-in-law got something very nice. I never wore it even once, because I didn't like the woman, I didn't like the color and I didn't like that she made a difference in giving gifts.

When my son was very young, probably around 5-6 he bought me a Christmas gift on his own. Well it was on his own kind of. It was one of those stores where the kid has a shopper go with them to pick out gifts. He bought me a cloth calendar where you have to sew the little sequins on. I still have it to this day.

When my son was very young, probably around 5-6 he bought me a Christmas gift on his own. Well it was on his own kind of. It was one of those stores where the kid has a shopper go with them to pick out gifts. He bought me a cloth calendar where you have to sew the little sequins on. I still have it to this day.

My sons used to do that, too! That is so cute. I still have a Christmas platter that I use every single year that my middle son picked out at one of those stores.

Another year he made me "earrings" completely by himself. It was so cute, because he made a design out of paper, then put pins through them. Later, I found some real earring hooks so I could wear them. He was so proud. He was always very creative. I guess all three of them were in their own ways, but my middle son was always making and/or building. something. Smile
