Reverse "Worst Foodie Gifts"

Michelly | Oct 27, 2012 05:17 PM

Breadcrumbs started an incredibly fun thread about what well-intentioned non-foodies have given you, thinking you'd just love instant caramel hot chocolate, etc. (My favorite is the cake slicer that played 5 tunes including "Jingle Bells" ! HeeHee!!)

But...have you ever given some non-foodie person a "foodie" gift, only to have it not appreciated for what it was in some way?
We recently visited our neighbors bearing a $75 tequila as a present. The wife thanked us profusely and took it to the kitchen to get glasses. When she came out, she had used it make bloody marys! and with a very cheap mix, on top of it!
My husband sat quietly, with a red face, mouth a thin line, and steam wafting out of his ears (only I could see it), and on the way home, he kept repeating "Never again! Never again! Never again!" all the way.
Yup...they get the Cuervo 1800 next time!
