An ABC toddler nook featuring the favorite uncle and a calendar featuring "Grammy."

Kids and adults can love or hate the gifts they get for birthdays or holidays. Sometimes, weird gifts can be fun. Other times, they can be embarrassing or downright puzzling. If you have ever received something odd, you will understand these people and their reactions to weird gifts.

8. The Perfect Children’s Book Doesn’t Exi…

Well, then. We stand corrected! If he’s the favorite uncle, does that make him a funcle?

We hope you have enjoyed these weird gifts. We got oranges and apples in our stockings, but I have never received an avocado. If you haven’t ever received something totally bizarre, you’re either very lucky or you have a boring family. Share these and discuss weird gifts with your friends to compare notes.
