Question by caffeinatedmom2: How would you feel if you received coupons as a gift?
Last Christmas, I gave a family member a brand new coupon book (similar to a Happenings book) in addition to other gifts. For my birthday, I got a couple coupons that she clipped from that book. Am I wrong for taking it as an insult? Do I send a thank you card?!
This was from a 30-something and she does remember because she thanked me for it a week or two ago. (Yes, a thank you for a Christmas gift, in June.)
About the original gift… the book cost $ 20, was full of coupons for stores/items that I know she uses, and it was in addition to other gifts. I don’t see anything wrong with that.

That’s really weird, but I would probably laugh it off. I would send a thank you card. If she was trying to insult you, you shouldn’t let her know that she succeeded. Let her think you’re thrilled with her “gift”.
I probably wouldn’t be buying her any future gifts, though.
