- A woman’s housewarming gift of eggs in a water dispenser has come under fire
- The present was made by placing eggs in jar bought for $3 from a garage sale
- Those who had seen the unique offering online said it doesn’t make any sense
- Others have said there would be a bacteria problem adding water to fresh eggs
An Australian woman has been slammed on social media for giving a housewarming gift of fresh eggs placed into a large glass jar.
A photo of the present was posted anonymously to Facebook along with details explaining how the item was perfect for the ‘egg lover’ and made from a $3 jar purchased from a garage sale.
‘Fresh eggs in a 3 dollar jar from a garage sale is a great prezzy [sic] for an egg lover, and a house-warming gift. This jar happens to be a water dispenser as well,’ the person posted.
The post has over one thousand comments with many saying they’re not only baffled by the gift but that they can’t understand why anyone would give eggs as a present.

The creator of the present said they thought the gift would go down a treat for the ‘egg lover’
‘Who gives EGGS as a housewarming gift,’ one person wrote.
‘All you gotta do is give the jar a good shake and “WALLAH!” [sic]. Scrambled eggs on tap,’ said one another sharing their thoughts on ways the gift could be used.
A third said the jar could function as an easy way to make scrambled eggs, however, they warned that people shuld ‘mind the shells’.
‘Why not just crack the eggs straight in, then you have an omelette dispenser,’ another wrote.

One commenter offered their views as to how the egg water dispenser could be used to make omelettes with ease
Another said shaking the jar could be a fast way to scramble eggs and the dispenser meant the meal could be ‘on tap’
Others commented that there could be a problem if the jar was filled with water with the eggs still contained within.
‘Yes, good idea. Let’s fill it up with lovely fresh bacteria water. Genius!,’ one person posted.
One said how upset they’d be if they were given the gift and announced they’d cut the person ‘completely out of my life’
There were also those who said what they’d be likely to do if they were given a similar gift.
‘Someone gives me eggs as a gift and I’ll throw the eggs at them,’ said one.
Another said: ‘I would literally stop talking to a person if this was their house warming gift to me. I’m talking complete cut out of my life. Bye bye.’
‘So I’ve been doing it wrong,’ a third said.
‘Giving a loaf of bread in a hessian bag for a 21st, supposed to be eggs in a jar, right, got it.’
