Mother's Day was two and a half weeks ago now. My MIL desperately needs silverware. They literally have ONE spoon and three forks and they have eight people living in the house. So for Mother's day DH and I bought her a nice set of silverware. We went over there tonight and she is yet to open the silverware. It is sitting on the counter in the kitchen. I asked DH (in private) if she liked them or if she wanted to return them. I gave him the gift receipt to give to her to let her know she is welcome to return them if she wants another set or something completely different. But she won't do it. She said she wants the silverware and didn't give any reason to him for why she hasn't used them yet.
I think it is a little weird. I am not overly offended, but am wondering what is going on. I know she doesn't like me much and am wondering if it has something to do with that. Can you come up with any explanation?

Maybe to her what silverware she had was good enough (did she request new silverware or was that just a gift you got on assumption?) Maybe she just doesn't have need for them right now and will use them when the time permits. I have plates that I have never used given to me 5 years ago, not because I do not like them but because the few plates I am working with are just fine. When the time comes I will use the plates that were given. I have learned sometimes the answer is right on the surface, it may not be the way you are taking it. (Just giving the benefit of the doubt)
