Sometimes, it is the weird gifts that we give people that they enjoy the most or have the best payoff.

My parents are old...sorry 78 and 79 years old is old...god bless them for making it this far. They have a hard time cleaning their house. Neither of them see that well or wear their glasses, so they tend to miss dust bunnies and spots on the floor. SO this year, after them saying "We don't want a robot-vacuum", I bought them a robot vacuum! It works great! It is an Eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11S (Slim). It is one of the cheaper robot-vacs, so that is rather simplistic. However, it can climb thick woven cord rugs which was a must for their Cape Cod house. That ability to climb up thick rugs was what I was looking for mostly - this one is a champ. It is very simple, which is not full-featured with scheduling or cleaning settings, but it was cheap & rugged.

What off the wall gift idea worked out well for you? What gift someone didn't want, became their favorite gift?
