What's the oddest holiday gift you've bought recently?

My mom is so hard to shop for. How many purses and earrings does she need? Tonite I was at BJ's Wholesale club and ended up buying her a box of 140 latex gloves (she uses them when she's cleaning house). Last year one of her gifts was 800 of those little cotton squares used to take makeup off.

One year I bought my parents a sump pump, another year I bought syringes and medication for the sheep and donkey.

This year we got my family coal and switches. Dad always threatened that was what Santa was going to bring.

So, we went to Lowe's and bought light switches and Kohl's for gift certificates.
