Hello Fiction Vixen! I’m so happy to be here, talking about XXXmas! Three cheers!!

Gift giving is always a hot topic during the holidays. I was recently asked about the worst gift I’d ever received. It’s kind of a funny story…

My boyfriend and I had been dating for seven years when I started to get wedding fever. I was about to graduate from college. We were living together. We’d just gone on a rustic, romantic vacation through central Mexico, where we were asked—by everyone—if we were honeymooners. My best friend got married.

I was ready.

On Christmas Eve, my fella presented me with a black velvet box. My heart started beating faster. Was he going to pop the question?! He didn’t get down on one knee, which was disappointing, but I opened the box anyway.

Earrings. He gave me a pair of nice diamond earrings.

I can’t remember how I reacted outwardly, but inside I was fuming. I don’t even like earrings. I wanted a ring, damn it.

I guess I held it together long enough to continue our gift exchange, because I remember opening the next present. You think he hid a ring in a crackerjack box to trick me, don’t you? Oh friends. He did not. No, he handed me a cute little package of sex toys.

Sex. Toys.

We’d discussed marriage that year, not vibrators. I’d never used a vibrator before (silly me). I was horrified! Both my boyfriend and I had been raised Catholic. I was an atheist by age 8, but I still didn’t feel that a dildo was an appropriate gift for a religious holiday.

Luckily, my horny bastard of a boyfriend got a clue and proposed a few months later. On one knee, in Spanish! We’ve been happily married for more than ten years now. I have a whole drawer full of vibrators. It’s a wonderful life.

    I sent my boyfriend a link to the hand-tooled leather Kindle case that I wanted for Christmas, because it’s all I want and it avoids things like boxes of dildos!

  4. Sandypo says

    I’d be thrilled to get sex toys but we are so broke this year the best present I could get would be a job. Please, Santa? I’ve been really good…

    We are spending the holidays with family so it will be a great Christmas! We don’t do presents except for little ones, its to expensive to do anymore.

    Thanks for all the lovely comments! I want an ipod so I can listen to audio books and music while I run. I hope Santa brings you everything you wish for. Fingers crossed for you especially, Sandypo.

    Happy Holidays!!
