    She’s crying because she got a $500 gift card?? Fiance and I would be so shocked and excited to get such a generous gift, especially from one person!

    I don’t understand why it would be an insult at all.  In my circle of friends and area, that is a huge gift..

    I’m not a huge Crate and Barrel fan, but I would be very grateful..

    Um, I’m not even going to go there.

    Your friend thinks $500 is cheap? The aunt didn’t even have to give her ANYTHING. $500 is more than enough and anyone would be wise to be incredibly GRATEFUL for such an amazing gift.





    Just because her aunt has $$$, doesn’t mean she has to give ANY of that money to your friend. She sounds incredibly spoiled.
