Daughter Regifting To Mother?

I'm confused. My question is: how do I take it if my daughter for Christmas birthdays or events will buy everyone else and buys me, or gives me something that someone gave her and that she didn't want or something cheap. She has a husband, a good job and I am a widow with very little income, but I so go out of my way to buy her nice pricey gifts, and through this she acts so nonchalant.

Your daughter may not know that you know these gifts were purchased for her originally.

I would be honest and tell her that you would like her to pick out something especially for you.

As for what you spend on gifts, dont go out of your budget. I think that is causing some of your hard feelings as well.

I would be honest, upfront, and just come right out and ask your daughter about everything that's bothering you.

I agree, with other members of this site. It is time to have the talk, with her about this gifting. It may not cross her mind that this bothers you. Let her know that your feelings are truly hurt.

I think this is passive aggressive. You could try talking with her as others have suggested, however that may allenate her even more.

I think a better course would be to cut back on her gifts or even regift something she regifted to you.

Maybe she is very busy and she just doesnt have enough time to choose gifts, maybe she is very practical and cannot throw away the gifts she doesnt like, maybe gifts are not important for her.

I wouldn't discuss this with my daughter if I were you. I don't know what kind of relationship you have with your daughter, but such a conversation might offend your daughter.
I think that you need to buy gifts according to your income and not expect gifts of the same value in return. The presence or absence of expensive gifts cannot affect our love for our children. Forgive this behavior of your daughter and do not be upset.
