I was reading another thread about swapping unwanted gifts, but what if you got a particularly HIDEOUS gift and just MUST recon it because it is that atrocious?

I thought of this the moment my dad handed me this fugly "thing" from his girlfriend. It's SO UGLY I can't even regift it to my hubby's grandmother!

So can we do a challenge like this after the Holidays?

Purdy Pleeeeeeeeeeeze?

Irregardless I am going to recon this ugly thing somehow!! LOL

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Please, please, please share your recon no matter if there's a challenge or not!  I need inspiration for the family white elephant swag!

I think this is a great idea! No matter what the occasion, xmas or birthday, I ALWAYS end up with some crud from my Mum that no self respecting 95 year old woman would want, even one with a penchant for overly floral, gawdy things...

Would you believe I have never even THOUGHT of a recon for this junk?! I just kind of pile it in the corner thinking perhaps I might be able to palm it off on MIL when she is particularly annoying, but then, I just can't do it.... I mean, I can't have people thinking I actually bought this ick.

I second, third & fourth this challenge, if for no other reason than to get awesome ideas about what do do with the horrors of christmas past.
