This is so funny πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

I wouldn’t even THINK to tell the person that I’d broken their gift!! That secret would go with me to my grave. And here this woman is confessing AND expecting a replacement πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ good grief. No don’t replace. Let them figure it out.

Is it possible that she is thinking that your package could’ve been insured and she is hoping you’ll help her by going to the store and saying that it is broken on the way or something? Maybe she is thinking that everything is replacable like with Amazon store. Not saying that she is not rude (very!), but just trying to think differently.

Honestly the advice to ignore it or give info about how to fix it is probably best. But I really think you should call her out. Even if relatively gently. 

“It is incredibly rude and inappropriate to expect a replacement. If you’d like to order a new one I can tell you where I got it.”

or “Have you lost your god damn mind?” Might also do it.

I would send a link to where I bought it and leave it at that.

if they seriously pursued you financing a replacement I would be done with this friendship. Rude does not even begin to describe this level of entitlement.

I can’t believe how rude and greedy people are becoming. I would be so embarassed if I broke a gift, I wouldn’t tell the person who gave it to me. I would just ignore the message altogether and avoid these people like the plague then.
