Wow, that’s awesome! I know how you feel, but definitely just smile and say “Thank you.” They want to give it to you, and clearly think you’re super special!

I understand the awkardness, FI’s family is the same way. I’ve never gotten a car, but they’re loaded and gifty. It makes me squirm. We just gotta keep practicing pretty smiles and thank you’s!

What an awesome gift !!

 

I know how you feel. MY IL’s gave us their 2005 Ford Explorer.  It only had 20K miles on it.  My FIL didn’t like that both of us had over 100k on our cars.  He didn’t like that I was driving his grandsons around in it.  I was speechless.   They are always giving us stuff and buying stuff for us.  They tell me its for making their son the happiest he has ever been and for giving them 2 additional grandchildren.  Love them.
