The Christmas after my youngest son was born my husband got me a bathroom scale😳 my son was a month old! He didn’t even think how it looked, he’d just heard me say I needed to buy one so he got it. It wouldn’t have been so bad but for our anniversary earlier in the year he bought me a vacuum!!! My postpartum hormones translated the gifts into I’m fat and my house is dirty. That pregnancy made me crazy, I’m surprised my husband didn’t divorce me lol!

My mother in law handing my dh's brother's girlfriend gift after gift and then turning to me and saying - Sorry but we didn't think to get you anything.

That hurt.

My ex mil got me a gift set from bath and body works and said "it's my favorite smell, so I'm sure you would love it." Uh cuz how hard would it have been to call your son and ask what his wife likes?!?!?

My inlaws did that to us both one year. Not mil or anything, but every single person got multiple gifts. My kid got a flashlight and a coloring book and sat there watching other kids get game systems and a bunch of games.

My husband and i were handed a christmas card and she said 'sorry, i ran out of money'. (Which was not likely)

I splurged on my husband last year. Got him 2 new video games, a book and clothes. He got me a pillow. A FUCKING PILLOW. I am only shopping for my kids this year.

Last year my Aunt gave me a cloth headband...hipster style. It doesn't hold my hair anyways, and that is not my style. I feel bad, but I was a bit disappointed when I opened that little box, especially as an aspiring minimalist. I don't like having things things I won't use.
