Not this year, but many years ago, my mother-in-law gifted me a microwave oven for Christmas... knowing that I don't do microwave food! I was more
amused than anything though.
The back story is that the microwave oven we had was broken when my husband slammed the door too hard (while we were in the midst of a huge fight). I
didn't care, because I never used it. I still had my toaster oven, and an air popper for popcorn, so no loss for me! And I had no intention or
desire to get a new one. I just told my husband to get it out of the kitchen. For some reason, my mother-in-law felt that was depriving her poor
boy, so she got me
a microwave for Christmas. I couldn't help but laugh when I opened it, and just handed it to my husband and said, "Here,
you'll appreciate this more than me."
That microwave oven has since broken, been discarded, and never replaced. My husband is good with that, having realized that the toaster oven really
is better for everything a microwave can do (and more).
