    @alishaloo:  Definitely exchange!  She is obviously fine with that if she gave you the info!

    @alishaloo:  Obviously, you need a bigger barrel. It will still be a gift from your Mom, so I wouldn’t hesitate to exchange it. If she gave you a size 0 dress and you took a 6, you wouldn’t hesitate would you? No difference in this situation to me.

    @alishaloo:  i think you should just exchange it, I’m sure she’d rather you have something that you’re gonna use.

    @alishaloo:  Definitely exchange it! If I gave someone a gift, I’d rather they exchange it for something that worked better for them and they USED the new item instead of letting my original item sit around and gather dust (and eventually get tossed).

    @alishaloo:  my mom wouldnt’ mind at all if I wanted to exchange something. Also, if I gave the gift I wouldn’t mind or be hurt at all. My goal when giving a gift is for the person to really like it and get use out of it no matter what it is. Exchange it!

    I don’t think she would be hurt at all by exchanging it for one that you can use. It was probably fairly expensive, I’m sure she would be more hurt if it sat there unused. She gave you the info for exhange, so I think that makes it pretty clear she’s okay with it.

    @alishaloo: I don’t think it’s offensive. You obviously like the gift and plan to use it a lot but you need a different size. It’s no different than exchanging a sweater for the same one in a different size.

    By the way you keep spelling “iron” and “barrel” wrong.

    I am the sentimental type…

    And even I say you can exchange this… as she clearly gave you the Info you need to do so.

    What irks me as an “Etiquette Snob… lol” is when people exchange things just because they want something entirely different, or THE CASH instead !!

    You want to replace it with something very very much similar, so the intent of the gift remains the same…

    So you aren’t doing anything offensive in my book
