@crr219191:  I guess my thoughts on this are: If you do not like her… Then clearly her card won’t be as personal as your siblings/parents..so do a generic “cookie cutter” card…She can compare all she wants, but you shouldn’t have to lie or fake your way through a card… you know what I mean?

At the end of the day, at least you are sending her one….

Just my two cents, maybe I am in the wrong on this….

Good luck!

I have a large variety of folks in my family who are difficult to deal with (to make a long story short). 

Don’t feel obligated. 

If she wants to be comparative that’s her problem. You don’t have to make her problems your problems!

It’s easy, just thank her for the gift, give a little song/dance about how the item will come in so handy in your new home.  If she gave money, how much the generous gift will help towards establishing your new little family.  Tell her you were so glad she could make it and hope she had a wonderful time.  Love you and DH and be done with it.  DH refused to write out Thank you notes so I put some of the same things in the thank you notes to his side of the family.
