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.

 Honestly, yeah, I would feel kinda hurt. I got my MIL these really nice wine glasses, charms, and stopper for Christmas. When I was over at her house on Easter they were sitting in the spare bedroom unopened. I admit, it hurt a bit. I wouldnt take it personal though.

Mention it to her if it bothers you, and no more gifts give a card and a gift card to some store and be done with it

 i wouldn't say anything about it.  i have a scrapbook someone made me in a box in the closet.  i have a cross stitch thing also boxed away that my sister is always asking about. (she made it and expects it to be hung by my front door).  after it is given a thank you is all that you should expect out of it.  there just isn't enough space in the world to display or even keep everything given.
