Ok, so while my hubby was at work he got a visit from one of our customers. She's a pretty nice lady, I'd say. She's Christian, and whenever she pays us a visit she takes it as an opportunity to witness. Now my hubby has repeatedly (and very kindly) told her that he does not share her beliefs and that he is happy this way. And so far she had respected that, up until now... This morning she stopped by the shop again. She came barring gifts by the dozen. I thought, "hey what a nice person!" Buuut, when my hubby opened the gifts it was full of Christian story books for our kids, a gospel cd for my hubby, a christian themed jewelry lock box for me, and more. Not to mention the Jesus wrapping paper and ribbons she gave us to wrap the kids gifts with. She said it was from the Lord. (I say - if the Lord knew us the way she knows him, then he woulda gave us food instead. We like to EAT, lol).
But seriously, my hubby found it pretty offensive for her to give those kind of gifts when it completely disregards our own beliefs. Although he and I do not see eye to eye with spirituality or religion, I agree with him on this one. He says creepy, I say she's being pushy. What do you all think?
ps he did try to give the gifts back, but she insisted we keep them. Then she quickly left.Answer Question

1) is your husband an employee or is this his business
2) what kind of business is your husband in
3) is she a vendor, a customer, what.
This is VERY ODD behavior for a place of business.

I would take them to a church in a poorer part of town. They can give them to kids that may not be getting christmas ans would share that form of belief so that it is well received.
Yes this is overly pushy. Just because you have the right to do something does not mean you should.
