Too Much Stuff!

I have a friend who is overly generous. We exchange birthday and Christmas gifts, but she quite regularly sends me other gifts that I really don’t want.

I am at the age where I am downsizing, and I really don’t want more stuff.

I feel if I donate the gift (or regift it to someone else), she might wonder where the gift is when visiting me.

Sometimes I’ll discuss something with her and the next thing I know there is a box at my door with something in it (book, music, etc.) related to a casual comment that I made to her.

Is there a way to tell her I appreciate her friendship but don’t want the “stuff?”

I agree with Amy, I would also suggest to the friend that he help his friend find a charity or two she enjoys, so that she may slowly help the organization tackle their wish list.

  1. My mother-in-law used to give us stuff all the time. I think you just have to be honest.
