Idk, Mil sometimes gives us stuff she doesn't want anymore, or things she thinks belong to us(9 times out of 10 they didn't). Anyhow I was looking for dds old year book  and I came upon a bag full of photo paper, there were also some stickers, and a photo album.  Well I was rather surprised about the photo Album, because well I gave it to her.  It was a Mothers day gift if I remember correctly.  it was really pretty, so Idk I thought she would like it, apparantly not.

1 mom liked this

lol, dh thought it might be funny to give it back as a gift and see if she noticed. idk, I might keep it, I got it for her, because I thought it was pretty and would have liked it if somebody gave it to me.

I wouldn't think too much into it... If she's "always giving you stuff" maybe she has too much "stuff" to know what to do with it. Also, if she's like me, all her photos are neatly filed in shoe boxes and she has several empty, brand new photo albums.

Its possible, it just kind of shocked me is all. Maybe I ought to put her name on future gifts.

Quoting lovelove211:

If I was close with her and she gave it back I would be a little upset. Maybe she forgot that it was a gift?

She probably forgot you gave it to her and didn't think anything of it.

Nope, my MIL never uses anything we buy her but puts it aside to re-gift!!  It is annoying, so now I just give her gift cards and the only problem with that is she turns around and buys things for my daughters, but hey if that makes her happy then it is what it is!

No, maybe it just wasn't her taste. No big deal. But if it bothers you say something to her.

Don't feel bad I once spent $300 on D&B bag for MIL and she used it once. And then she threw it in her good will pile. Now all she gets from us is crappy stuff for her bday, mothers day, and Christmas.
