Is it okay to admit you don’t like jewelry someone gives you?
My husband gave me earrings this Valentine’s Day and they are beautiful. But when I first opened the giftbox, I wasn’t sure if I liked them. Thankfully after I tried them on, I have decided that I love them, in fact. However, as I went to try them on, I thought to myself, what if I didn’t like them? Would I tell my husband so he can return them? Jewelry is a very personal gift and it ain’t cheap so shouldn’t my husband get his money’s worth by giving me something he will see me wear and not leave in the box in my closet?
I am the type of person who would never tell him if I didn’t like the earrings, even if I hated them. In fact, he has given me jewelry I hate that does sit in a box in my closet. I have a friend, however, who insists it is not only perfectly acceptable to be honest about jewelry, but that you owe it to the gift giver to be honest and maybe even go back with them to the store to get something you really like. I can see the logic to her thinking, unless of course the gift is engraved or purchased from somewhere out of town where you can’t easily return it. I just don’t think I would ever have the gall to be that person.
What do you guys think?
