My mom got me and my sister (both of us are in our 40's) each a self help book on improving concentration and being more present. It is so odd. Neither of us is seeking to improve this aspect. My mom has given me parenting books, within context of a challenge or developmental stage, before. These have been totally appropriate and I've accepted her offer before she's sent them to me. This is a new level though. I thanked her for the book and don't plan to say any more. My sister - both of us have struggled with ADHD and have developed very good habits to address this - is rather insulted however....
The hubs got me a very large spa gift card for a spa day. On the card he wrote “Because you just need a minute”, which is from a Bluey episode where Chilli says that because she just needs to get away from her family. When that episode came on, I yelled, “Preach, sister!” and all the way through when the kids kept trying to go see her, I was saying, “Keep them out, Dad! Seriously, if you want to live, give your wife her damn minute!”
We don't see any extended family members at Christmas, so we are always opening gifts that have been sent to us with no context, which can be weird. This year, in a bag labeled for me and DH, my parents gave us a hat that said "Everyone is thinking it, I'm just willing to say it" or something like that. We're not sure who it was intended for. But the sentiment fits 10-year-old DD the best, so we decided to give it to her
SIL sent us a pillow that is gold sequins that you can smooth into a picture of her making a funny face. Which is weird but also hilarious.
We are not exchanging with adults this year (except my mom and DH). DH got me a handrail. It still needs to be stained and installed. It's random, but I do want it because there is this one section of about 5 steps that doesn't have one and we've all fallen down them except for DH.
