Today, after giving my mother and my girlfriend their Christmas presents, I realized just how similar they looked both in box size and wrapping paper. I noticed after my mother gasped upon finding a vibrator in her box. FML

why would you give your girlfriend a vibrator?? Isn't that what you're there for?

Why give your girlfriend a vibrator if she could just use you?

I'm wondering why the boyfriend would have his girlfriend open her gift in front of the mom. You know the mom is going to want to borrow it now.

21-OP mixed the boxes since they were wrapped similarly, and OP's mom received the vibrator. Now OP's girlfriend may need to borrow it.

Thanks for explaining things Captain Obvious! Somehow I imagine Pradip speaking in the voice of Goldmember

32- It wasn't that obvious for every one. 21 needed this to be pointed out to them.

This is why you wrap and tag each present as you go. Then move onto the next present. I've never had a mix-up.

21- I thought the same, then realized the FML doesn't actually say that mom and girlfriend opened their gifts in each other's presence. OP could have given them the gifts in advance and just watched his mom open hers. Meanwhile, somewhere else, the girlfriend is wondering why her boyfriend gave her old lady slacks...

Lol like seriously. Name tags could really help..

Umm... no offense, but you need more imagination, I think. At least when it comes to sex. Guy and vibrator are not mutually exclusive. There's limit to male endurance, but women can have multiple ******. So you could use vibrator on girlfriend when you can no longer do it yourself. Or you could use it for DP if she's into this kind of thing. There are many other other ways to use it. Many, many other ways.

58- maybe he was just answering 18s question. Just a thought.

104 name tags tell you who the gift is to it could of stopped the whole situation from happening

How hard is it to double check? Especially when one of the gifts is a vibrator.

He'd have to unwrap it to check if there's a vibrator in there. Wrapping presents is a very difficult task, my friend.

I misunderstood. Thought Liv meant to double check after they finished wrapping. My mistake.

@19 - Wrapping presents is only difficult for people like the OP who obviously have no clue what they're doing. Seriously, it takes about 5 minutes to learn to properly wrap any gift that's roughly box-shaped of any size.

Box shaped gifts are the easiest to wrap too!

Some men like to be able to pleasure their girlfriend even when they aren't there. Plenty of women in a relationship use vibrators, just like many men in relationships still jerk off. It is no different.

hmm good point. i take back my comment

Or OP might be a woman? Gender isn't specified :)

Do you have a problem with us gay people, 42? Are you a homophobe? :P

The real problem here is that the girlfriend was simply going to receive a vibrator. Whereas truly thoughtful men give their girlfriends custom molded ****** of their penis.

Regardless of if OP is female, my message still stands that a lot of people ********** whilst in a relationship. It doesn't matter if you are a woman or man. Sometimes the libido women have is down played drastically because you girls are just really good at controlling yourselves.

Yeah but my girlfriend doesn't supply me the **** on family holiday get togethers...

There was a FML earlier where a guy gave his girlfriend a custom mold of his penis. xD

Maybe OP is in the military and going over seas and wants his GF to have something to keep her occupied and content while he's gone. There's lots of reasons to give your GF a vibrator.

Give her a vibrator, sure, but even if it didn't get accidentally opened by your mom, it's embarrassing for your girlfriend to open it in front of your family regardless. That's a gift that should be opened in the privacy of the bedroom. So I say YDI.

Why not give your girlfriend a vibrator? (Or other sex toy, for that matter). My partner has bought me plenty of toys, although usually I'm along to choose it and it's usually for Valentine's Day or our anniversary. I have periods of time where I can't have penetrative sex (I have a variety of health problems, including Lupus) comfortably, so we tend to use a combination of sex toys and other body parts instead. When I was going into hospital and wouldn't be able to have any sex after surgery for two months, I bought him a Fleshlight. Who cares? However, why the OP didn't use different paper and name tags is a bit beyond me. That seems like a bit of poor planning. Since I generally have four people to purchase stuff for, if I'm using the same paper I also use curling ribbon, and we get four colours on a roll - white for Mom, red for Dad, green for my brother, gold for my partner. Just in case.

My dad gave my mom a vibrator for her birthday one year. But I guess that's different

Should've wrote names on the presents after you wrapped each one of them.

Awkward moment when she screams "ERMAHGERD!! I LOVE IT! " Then proceeds to tell you how your father can't pleasure her like he used to anymore.

I think you meant to say. Ermergherd, er lerve ert!

OP's Mom: *Opening present, pulls out ****** What do we have here? OP: Oh shit sorry mom that was for my gir..... OP's Mom: I love it, I'm going to go try it out right now. Thank you son. *runs up stairs*

Like a little kid. "omg THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I'm going play with it RIGHT NOW!!!" *runs off*

OhDearBetrayal 25

Lets be thankful that it wasn't molded to be exactly like OP's penis if his mom actually reacted like that.

Up vote, simply because you used "ermergerd" haha

Why would you buy your girl a vibrator anyway? Not doing your job or what?

nothing like banging your lady in the poo pipe whilst a vibrator tickles her lady cake.

Of course evilvagina would say that.. xD

He has limits. There are things his penis can't do. It's a dick, not a swiss army knife.

I know this comment will probably get down voted but after the lousy morning I've had I just have to thank you for making me laugh out loud with your comment. So with out further ado, Thank you!

I can think of at least 5 ways she could use it with partner. You need to train your imagination. At least it when it is sex-related.

First, guys (assuming OP is male) do have recovery time. And even people in relationships use toys and take matters into their own hands.

The awkward moment when you remember you actually bought them both vibrators... That's why the boxes looked so similar.

I'm guessing it was out of shock, not happiness

I thought the gasp was from having a vibrator in her box.
