Teen Is Mortified When Her Mom Gives Her A Christmas Gift That Looks Exactly Like A Dildo

Christmas shopping often comes with a lot of pressure. You want to get your loved ones something original that they’re sure to love, but you also want to surprise them. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done.

At the end of the day, it’s probably better to play it safe, but you can’t fault someone for swinging for the fences. You just don’t want to fall somewhere in between, where your gift is too boring—or the complete opposite—totally inappropriate.

One 18-year-old New Orleans resident, Shelby Donovan, knows all about the latter. When she recently unwrapped a gift from her mother, she couldn’t believe her mother would get her something like that. Then she learned the truth and almost fell over laughing…

Shopping for your loved ones at Christmastime comes with an immense amount of pressure. You want to get them something original, that will completely wow them, but often that can go horribly wrong. The holidays put a lot of pressure on us!

At the end of the day, the gift receiver is either going to love or hate what you’ve gotten them. You just don’t usually fall anywhere in between those two extremes. You certainly don’t want to give a gift that is too boring, or the complete opposite—totally inappropriate. 

 

Just take what happened to 18-year-old Shelby Donovan from New Orleans, Louisiana, for instance. Recently, she was completely mortified when she unwrapped a Christmas gift from her mother in front of her entire family…

When Shelby pulled the object in question from the gift box, the rest of the family immediately began to giggle. “My mom realized why we were laughing, so she says, ‘What? Do you actually think I would get you [that] for Christmas?'” the teen explained.

That’s when her mother took the opportunity to further explain the bizarre and suggestive gift. Apparently, Shelby had been holding the gift upside down, which she described as a “horrible mistake.” It was just a cup holder!

“My grandma’s [reaction] was definitely the best,” Shelby said. “She described it as, ‘Business in the morning, fun at night.'” Shelby had asked her mother to get her tea and coffee for Christmas because the teen had a “horrible addiction to Starbucks.”

 

Furthermore, the Louisiana teen thought it would be better to start brewing at home and bring drinks around with her in a tin tumbler. Naturally, her mother thought it would be easier for her to make the transition if she had a strong, portable cup holder.

Of course, Shelby didn’t hesitate to share the funny moment with her Twitter followers! The outpouring of responses was practically immediate. Clearly, the questionable gift that her mom had given her was a topic for debate…

Now, Shelby now uses the cup holder, which she describes as “very efficient,” on a regular basis… as long as she’s at home. “I’m almost too scared to go out in public with it since so many people on here agreed that it looks like a dildo,” said the teen.

It’s great that Shelby and her mom have dealt with this potentially embarrassing situation so hilariously. Maybe next Christmas, though, Shelby’s mother will decide to get her something a little less… phallic.

What a hilarious misunderstanding. Luckily, that’s all it was.
