Comparing gifts, you tend to get the short end of the stick.

Happens almost each year.

i can feel your pain

that's precisely why i picked Petru Name's Day as far as possible from his bday or Xmas. to have the opportunity to get THREE fat gifts

Big mistake.

They end up advising you "useful" things to give (like a new pijama, a lunch box, a pair of gloves,..."no seriously, she'll love it"...yeah, right) while they give their children "fun" gifts as if it's a popularity contest: "we got you this while your godmother only got you that".

Solution: you don't bother asking the parents any more.
With my mom it was exactly the opposite: everytime she was buying me this solid, practical stuff while everybody else and especially my dad( they were divorced) gave me the most awesome things: awesome dresses, jewelry, flowers in those big, ornamented bouquets as you see in movies

the frustration grew and one year when she bought our Goddaughter a silver bracelet( that i remember every single detail of to this day ) and me a pijama i just snapped and tear the pijamas in her face. She never did the same mistake again

I'd be miffed at that one as well. Don't parents realise that you compare gifts?

---

I had a similar outburst when my parents told me at Christmas time that initially, they weren't planning on giving me another gift since I'd just gotten a birthday gift but they figured that it would be nice for me to open a gift anyway. After which they offered me a small package with a huge smile.
--> It turned out to be a bar of soap and not even a nice and luxurious piece of soap but just a brown bar of soap that smelled badly.
I'm still baffled by that.

Considering what my sister got for her birthday in August and what she'd just gotten for Christmas, I flat-out refused the bar of soap, followed by a huge and angry rant. Next year, I got one gift (for my birthday and christmas) but it was a bit bigger than usual.

No, they don't. And she still doesn't understands, 25 years later
Inevitably the discussion turns to "after all I've done for you, you remember that small detail"

The truth is that, since then, she gives me money to buy what i want but i'd much prefer to be a surprise but I don't trust her

LOL not that I have anything against Muzz, you know I love him. Dimitrov still seems like another Gasquet-like 'prodigy'.
I definitely prefer Dimitrov over Milos.

I didn't get my sister's kids anything this year, I knew they would have many other gifts. And I was right. And they weren't upset or anything, they still believe in Santa Claus

I've cut down on the gifts for my goddaughter just because she gets so much.

She'll open a gift, look at it briefly, say thanks and put it on a growing pile and move on to the next gift.

She's much happier if you do stuff with her, like take her to the movies or something like that.
I'm taking my godson to a Cirque du Soleil extravaganza and I'm giving my goddaughter money because she's saving up for something.

Your godchildren are lovely as well, such a polite girl and that boy, the stories you've told... I'm sure you'll have fun at the Cirque du Soleil show.
