LAUGH because you know they are so lame and you so rock. wynter 8 years My own mom is more than likely to give me something I hate than my MIL, lol cottoncatie 8 years once when i was a kid my grandma bought me a HIDEOUS sweater. (she's an evil b!tch and i could go all off on that but ill spare you.) she asked me if i liked it and i told her no. (i was 10 or 11 i think) and she cried and told everyone i hated her. i told her i just hated the sweater, but she threw a fit and hasnt bought me a present since. except for other HIDEOUS things she picks up at yard sales, and buys my sister expensive perfume and jewelry. Ugh. jaclynn 8 years My fiance's mom knows better.. she just gets me manicures or gift cards for holidays lol. I'd probably wear it once around them though, unless it was repulsive and made me look ridiculous or something. ithoughtso 8 years I'd wear it just once around them. In a way, thank goodness I don't have a mother-in-law. . .father-in-law wouldn't buy me a dress! :) But I would want my husband to do the same for me. GypsysJewels 8 years Of course I'm not married but my boyfriends family always gets me gifts. GypsysJewels 8 years This has happened to me but I just tell them I don't like it and they will take it back. I just say I have a certain style and I don't want to keep it if I wouldn't wear it. Yeah their a little mad at first but they get over it. Imabeliever 8 years Ok people..my husbands fav color is purple so we used it in our wedding. For some reason my mother in law thought MY favorite color is purple. Every single birthday, anniversary and Xmas present for five years now I have received a present from my mother in law that is purple along with the statement "your favorite color..I may not know much about fashion but I know Wendy's favortite color". I never wear purple..but I wear it for her..I have the purple sheets in rotation on our bed..for her and I will continue to smile and warmly thank her for every purple gift.. Toronado 8 years Okay, Jennifer, you're right. I wouldn't tell them that. I'd thank them very much for such a wonderful gift. And I'd wait 'till they leave and THEN line the litter box. sexyeyes 8 years I got to be honest with you guys therefore I picked keep it for a while hoping they forget all about it :EVIL: gossipqueen 8 years Wear it once, there's no harm in it. yayita 8 years LOL, I would wear it once and then get rid of it pinkangelmonkey 8 years neither...return it and exchange it for something i want! im just too honest and they wouldnt care...i have been here before. Faye16 8 years I probably wouldn't wear it but thank them and tell them it's nice OR I'd wear it once infront of them, depends on how bad it is and whether it fits right! lms 8 years I am way too picky for anyone to buy clothes for me or my daughter. Everyone gave up a long time ago. They know that if I don't like it, it won't be worn for politeness sake. lickety-split 8 years it's GONE! this happens every year, with our girls too. every grand daughter gets the smae dress. tell me, is it really possible that the same dress will look good on every child? one year she had the nerve to say she wanted us to get together and have their pix professionally taken (in the ugly dresses she bought). i was like "uh huh oh sure", knowing no one would follow through. imho, the reason the dresses are ugly is because ZERO thought went into the purchase process. here is what i picture: "i need something in sizes 4 through 7 in girls for 5 kids that doesn't cost more than $100.00 what do you have?" no thanks. jennifer76 8 years You would NOT Tor. I see right through you, ya sweetheart.
