Peculiar Gift?

In honor of Birthday Week here at DSP, I'm going to (try to) have birthday related prompts for the rest of the week. What's the most peculiar gift you've ever received? Describe the scene when you opened it and your reaction.

It is very difficult to remember a peculiar gift. I received a gift from my parents in law last year that they thought I might think peculiar & on the surface it is.
It is a nice white cup with blue flowers on it.
Why would a person with a stash of cups need another one? As with any present though, it is the thought that matters. What was the thought process behind the cup? It was that sometimes we just need to take a break in our day & relax & drink a cup of coffee in a pretty cup. What a wonderful sentiment.
I have to say I love this gift & there is nothing better than a freshly brewed coffee in my nice cup, the sound of silence & a good trashy magazine to read. Ahhhh bliss!

I think it says a lot about you that your in laws value you enough to want you to have "me" time! That is really sweet.
