When my husband and I first got married, he was pretty new to the whole gift exchanging thing that happens during the holidays. You see, he grew up in a house where these types of holidays weren’t celebrated. So when it came time to celebrate our first Christmas together, it also happened to be his very first Christmas in history, I didn’t have high hopes when I went to open my gift. Little did I know, it would not only be the one gift in history I would always remember and cherish, but it was also the ugliest and worst gift I’ve ever seen in my life.
What gift could be so hideous but loved all at once?
Polar Bear Pajamas.
But not just any polar bear pajamas, they were blue, covered in cartoon bears and trimmed with white fur on every edge. It was the kind of gift you would give to a 6 year old and apparently, you’re 18 year old wife. There’s even a photograph of me wearing them floating around in this house somewhere, but even if I could find it, I probably wouldn’t show it too you. It was that embarrassing. But because he tried and I loved him (and still do), I wore those jammies until they mysteriously disappeared. It really was the best gift he ever gave me!
Unlike those ugly polar bear pajamas I got years ago, there are some really cute ones at Kohl’s that would perfect for a gift …. for kids!
And since this is the season for shopping for gifts (ugly or not), I highly suggest you skip the crowds and shop online. There are so many great deals to be had and you can use free shipping coupon codes so you never have to pay anymore than you would had you shopped the in-store crowds. Personally, I did almost all of my holiday shopping online so I could take advantage of online coupons and the free shipping.
