WORST gift:
a shrek chia pet. it was from an ex-boyfriend and the chia pet smellllled and was dead within days.

BEST given:
last year i went ga-ga on the photo albums and made my parents and two brothers photo albums of old family pictures...they were a big hit! (i also made a photobook of a trip to NOLA for my fiance).

Thanks Jillian for stopping by FT today!! I'm not sure what I would do if I ever received a chia pet as a xmas gift! What are the best and worst gifts you have received?

  4. The Shrek chia pet is AWESOME!! Haha!! ;)

  5. I like the idea of this post. A Shrek chia pet?! No wonder he is an ex!

  8. Oh man, the chia pet. It's just too good. Lately, the photobooks on Shutterfly have been my go-to gift since each can be different and personalized!
