They Obviously Spent Way More Than You

Okay, if you guys had a set price limit, this one’s a piece of cake. Just say, “Woah! This is way more than we’d talked about doing for each other, but you are so sweet. I love it.” If you hadn’t talked about price, and you really feel the need to address it (which you don’t have to!), say “You didn’t need to do this, but it’s so thoughtful of you. I love it.” Never, ever ask “How much did this cost?!” even if you’re really wondering. That’s super rude.

    That’s dumb, you should be able to say “I’m allergic to peanuts” when you get something with peanuts in it, its a pretty important fact. There is nothing “rude” about that. You should also be able to show appreciation for a gift you get, when you get it, no matter who is around. I wouldn’t care if someone liked someone else’s gift more than mine, that’d be dumb. If that does happen, you have some sort of jealousy issues.
