I've gotten the same gift, with slight variations, from the same relative, twice now. The first time it wasn't something that worked well for me, so I gave them away (inexpensive). The second was this year. she gave me a piece of jewelry she adores, idential, except for the color of the crystals in it. She is a compulsive shopper in every sense of the word, and buys multiples of anything and everything. This piece of jewelry is from a line she loves, but I don't really care for. The funny thing is, she is quite cheap, and the jewelry is from LAST year, so I'm sure she just plucked it out of her stash and re-gifted.
Which is fine, but I didn't really like it the first time around nad have never worn it. Now I have two. adn she commented on the colors in this one, so even though I actually prefer the first one, I kind of have to keep this one too. Darn.
