Earlier this week, a daughter-in-law (DIL) reached out to the Mamamia community asking for advice on how to avoid hurting her mother-in-law's feelings over a handmade gift she had no desire to keep.
Olivia* shared she had received baby hangers made by her mother-in-law (MIL), along with "various other handmade items... that she kindly let me know she was making for our baby."
Unfortunately, Olivia wasn't a fan of the gift.
"How do I politely let my mother-in-law know I do not want these?" the expectant mother wrote in her post. "Or do I have to just suck it up and get them out of a box every time she comes over?"
