A WOMAN says she dreads getting birthday presents from her sister because she insists on buying saucy "gag gifts" that leave her dying with embarrassment.
Despite begging her to stop, she says the sister keeps up the raunchy joke every year – and the most recent one "went too far".
Now she is horrified at the thought of what she might have to open when her birthday comes round again.
So she asked for advice from online agony aunt Dear Prudence in a question titled: "I'd take a gift card."
She said: "My sister and I have an otherwise good relationship, but she is a terrible gift-giver.
"When her birthday or a special occasion rolls around, I try to give her thoughtful, useful gifts.
"For my last birthday, she sent me a butt plug as a 'gag gift'.
"She has consistently sent me similarly unfunny/raunchy 'gag gifts' that, quite frankly, are embarrassing to receive.
"Beyond it being gauche, I never use these gifts, and I can’t exactly give them to someone else.
"I’ve tried subtle methods to get her to stop, like hinting at gifts I might prefer.

"At one point I tried to be more direct and asked her point-blank to stop, but she kind of shrugged it off.
"How do I get her to reconsider the 'gifts' she sends me? My birthday is coming up and I don’t want to have to unwrap another piece of junk."
Dear Prudence replied that, after searching online, she discovered butt plugs are "not inexpensive".
"Your sister is really doing a lot for a joke that’s not landing," she wrote.
Prudence advised a "no gift policy" between the sisters.
She said: "Make it clear to her that you’re not accepting gifts for your upcoming birthday.
"If she brings you one anyway, you’re under no obligation to open it and should, instead, just give it right back.
"'Oh, remember, we’re not doing gifts anymore. Thank you, though. I hope you can return it!'"
Although this woman did not appreciate the gifts, others can see the funny side.
The Sun previously told how a daughter bought her 60-year-old mom a sex toy for Mother's Day.
Kirsty Ranson said: "I thought to myself ‘What better gift than a vibrator?’ I knew she’d be a bit shocked, but I hoped she’d see the funny side.
"She’d already told me that she’d used them in the past. We have the kind of relationship where can discuss sex openly so I thought I’d get her a new one as a surprise. I thought it would cheer her up."
