Spin off the Mother's Day, what would you like most post...is there something that you hate to receive?

This sounds ungrateful...but I hate receiving cut flowers! My husband knows it, I've told him, and he still buys them! It seems like such a waste of money to me because they last only a few days!

I was just going to say the same thing....flowers!    They are so expensive and I can't seem to keep them alive for more than a couple days.

Books are very personal in my opinion...if you are a reader...you probably want to choose your own.

Every time I see them, I think about how the money could be better spent, lol! If rather a nice potted plant I can replant outside.

Lotions and other scented junk. Even if I'm not allergic, I've never willingly used a lotion. I really hate spa-y stuff, and a lot of the ILs think all women love it, but it's like they've never met me, because if you did, you'd buy me food or drink.

I will graciously say "thanks", of course, but I do want to re-gift. I have a whole storage drawer of the stuff in the bathroom.

I think that's a perfect regift :)

Socks. MIL buys me "novelty" socks with pictures on them. I can't wear them, they make my feet sweat.

I don't think there is anything I would hate. I guess I would hate to get nothing which has been the case the last few years. DD even forgets and that's the worse.

 One dil gets me fragrance stuff all the time, lotions, bath gel, candles...even though I've said I'm allergic. I also say thank you and then regift it.
