    next time she ever implys that you need to give her son the perfect gift… you straight out tell her “he has me so he HAS the perfect gift ever day”

    and remember to breathe 🙂

    She did overreach, but you’re also overreacting. There’s no need to let this spoil future Christmases (or birthdays). It sounds almost like she wanted to stage the whole Christmas spectacle and have control over every element of it, not just what she buys for others but what other buy for each other. That’s crazy. Realize she’s crazy and that you’d be crazy too if you let a crazy person get to you.

    I agree with marjojo – she did overreach, but don’t let it ruin future Christmases! I am still in school, and about to finish with student loans, so I hear ya completely. If she brings up Christmas gifts that are out of your price range, I would simply state “Oh, we set a limit of X dollars this year” or “That sounds like a great gift, but I already had something else in mind.” She should understand.
