You guys, this weekend my dad surprised me with an extremely extravagant, but VERY unneeded, gift. He doesn't do these things often, but when he does, he goes big. However, I hate it when he does this, because it doesn't fit my personality. How can I explain to my dad that I feel uncomfortable with what he does, as I like practical gifts, without making him think I'm not appreciative for all that he does for me (including these gifts)? Because I am so grateful, and he is a wonderful dad....but, I think he just thinks that because I am a female, I expect expensive gifts. When I'd actually really appreciate the occasional, like, grocery store gift card instead - REALLY appreciate it, actually.|
I feel like I have attempted to explain myself a billion times, but he just laughs it off....
if you dk/dc, what is the last thoughtful gift you received from someone you love? Or the last thoughtful gift you gave?
