    Mother in law

    My mom in law keeps boasting about us in her friend circle and as a result everyone keeps asking for expensive gifts from us. How to tell her politely not to brag about us

    Your mother-in-law must be quite proud of you to brag so much to her friends. I'm not sure where the requests for expensive gifts come from though. A gift is something you give from your heart. A gift is thoughtful and meant to be treasured.

    I simply can't imagine someone approaching me and expecting me to provide them with an expensive gift. If that were to happen, I think that I would ask them what do they really need?

    If they are truly in need, then they would not expect an expensive gift.

    Perhaps tell your mother-in-law that you appreciate her kind words, but you are not Santa Claus and every day is not Christmas.
