DH's mother is somewhat of a buy-aholic. She buys many things and then gives some of those things to DH. This happened when he was out of college living on his own...so he (and we) have a lot of things that my mother in law bought but that aren't necessarily what I'd like.

Case in point, our christmas tree. We inherited our tree and ornaments from MIL (she had two trees and two sets of ornaments). Now that we have 2 kids, I don't feel comfortable putting up the egg-like ornaments bc they seem fragile. There are a ton of them and ideally, i'd like to give them back to MIL so she can put it on her tree or do with it what she likes. I should mention I don't particularly like the style of ornament either.

But...Is that rude?
