How much would you say is too much to receive in gifts from your parents/ILs? I have been trying to get my parents to cut back for years.. and I thought they finally had but surprised me with several items we weren't aware of.
Now that I am a part of DH's family and they gave us plenty of gifts - probably $700 worth b/t both of us as a guess and then they tried to slap a check for a large amount of money on top of that after we had tried to talk to them about doing a smaller Christmas this year. We declined the gift.. and they didn't want to take no for any answer, so it turned into a bigger scene than we had intended.
But.. how much do you think is too much/average? We are just getting too old for our parents to continue to try and take care of us. We want to be treated like adults because we are and we can take care of ourselves. Does anyone else feel this way?
