'Tis the season for giving... odd gifts?

Whether it's from watching infomercials or walking through a department store this holiday season, we're bound to see something that makes us scratch our head and say to ourselves: 'Who buys this stuff!?'

It could be someone you love.

iReporter ecotraveler approached us with the idea of creating an assignment for everyone to share their, well, unusual presents from years past. We loved it. She says she got the idea after she bought a family friend a very unusual gift: 10,000 praying mantises.

Have you ever given or received a funny, offbeat, or just plain weird gift? Share with us your photos and stories.

After all, it's the thought that counts!


Update: This assignment is now closed and is no longer accepting submissions. Check out the weirdest and wackiest gifts iReporters received on the CNN iReport blog!
