I know this is going to sound ungrateful.... and I really dont mean it to.
My child is the second grandchild, 3 mo. younger than the first, both girls. Grandmother buys first grandchild VERY expensive gifts all name brand... and the first grandchild loves that... she is VERY into name brand items. My daughter is not in to the brand names and has a vastly different personal style than the first... but grandma insists on buying her the same gifts.
Last christmas my daughter got the key necklace from Tiffanys... she hates it and never wears it... it simply is not something she thinks is pretty, even though it is from Tiffanys.
Next week is her 16th birthday... she asked for new clothes. Grandma is insisting she get her jewelry. I told her about a watch my daughter wanted... but my mil thinks it is too cheap. She has in her mind that she wants to spend $500. I saw the type necklace she was looking at and I KNOW my daughter will think it is not attractive and I KNOW she wont wear it.
I hate to see her money go to waste. I know that it will never get worn. I know if she spent 2/3 of that on clothes my daughter would be THRILLED. But mil really wants to give her a keepsake.
