I've got a bunch of Giant Toes that I can't get rid insists they're quest items. But I don't think I have such a quest. Can I start it somewhere so I can get rid of them?

Even if your quest only needs one item, the game will mark the entire stack as quest items, which can be quite annoying. My guess is you have a misc quest asking for one or two of those things. – Arkive Nov 30 '11 at 22:16

They are used for the "Hangover" quest which starts with a drinking competition in which you black out and destroy a temple (see this question if you need help). One of the items needed to repair the staff is a Giant's Toe.

It appears to be an optional item in the quest, as I never had any need for it in the way I completed it. – Doozer Blake Nov 30 '11 at 23:01
@DoozerBlake As far as I know, you don't actually use it in the quest, however you do have to lug it around. – Raven Dreamer Dec 1 '11 at 1:30
@RavenDreamer Ahh. I guess I did have it around on me at the time, I just didn't try to sell it or get rid of it at the time during the quest. – Doozer Blake Dec 1 '11 at 14:48

Skyrim has the annoying functionality that sometimes regular items can be quest items (Giant's Toes, Amulets of Talos), but they stack with their non-quest item selves, and you can't separate them.

To answer your question, Sanguine's Daedric Quest involves a quest-item Giant's toe. (See Uhh... I got drunk and trashed a temple. How do I pick up the mess?)
