@Nic01:  LOL, they used to insist on making up Christmas wish lists. So one Christmas, instead of buying a new blender like I wanted, they presented me with a choice of several 5-10 year old used models they already owned. 

They will also send me birthday presents, always late, and usually addressed to FH so he opens them first and hands to me. 

Or at Christmas, making sure to get me a similar present to someone else but making mine crappier. As in, FH’s sister gets a lovely cashmere hat and gloves, I get an itchy wool/polyester version.

I know I should be grateful to get anything, but I think it may be worse to get continually crappy presents which appear to be part of a message ” we cared, but not too much “

@philadelphiachic:  beautiful!

 

My birthdya just passed and I got a surprize gift of a spa day from my FIL’s (it’s for the spa/salon I wanted to use for the wedding, they said this way I can check them out) and then a wonder gift from FIs aunts and uncles, the best part of which was the card that welcomed me to the family.
