    This.. When did it start being appropriate to tell friends you don't like gifts or got bad ones as 'payback'.. #confused

    Like PP I can't believe this is even a question.
    What is wrong with this group of people? Questioning gifts? Giving annoying gifts to retaliate for some accidental slight.
    Why are you even friends? Let alone spending money on each other's kids since it's clearly not appreciated?

    I can't believe you actually challenged your friends in what they got your DS. Where I'm from that's called bad manners.

    🤔🤔

    1) I would love board games as a gift.
    2) I would NEVER ask someone why they bought something as a present.
    3) If a friend asked me why I bought them xyz, well they wouldn't be my friend anymore.

    This is so petty it's actually amusing.

    In our family payback gifts are common. Mostly very noisy and annoying toys. Sometimes it's even the same annoying toy we gave their child.

    I have heard of people doing pay back gifts. Usually it's a loud annoying toy or something. I don't like it though it's pretty silly.. Poor kid. Board games are awesome though.

    I think you must have the type of friendship you can question them and they can be cheeky back

    I would say, "Thank you" and hope my child learns to be grateful and gracious.

    Unless it's the adults version of trivial pursuit I wouldn't see an issue?

    OMG my stupid deadbeat dad gave me adults trivial pursuit when I was 7 (the only present he ever gave me). I had asked for the children's version.

    Oh, the tears!
