My friend just got married and her aunt gave her a $500 Crate and Barrel gift card. She didn’t register for anything so it wasn’t totally crazy. Her aunt has a lot of money, but since she’s divorced and the uncle is ALSO getting her something, I don’t think it’s such a cheap gift. Well, my friend is in tears over this and she has taken it as a huge insult. Isn’t this a bit much??

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..

@adoc86: Ok, this was my thought. It’s really making me think my friend is a snobby b*tch to be honest, haha.

@canarydiamond: Yes, her aunt is wealthy (multi millionairess) so I guess she was insulted that it was “so cheap”

Umm, that is an AWESOME gift! If someone gave me a $500 gift card I would be thanking them, more than once!

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.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: Me too. I don’t understand why my friend had an emotional breakdown over this. It totally ruined her wedding day.
