You should graciously accept it and buy yourself something nice then let them know what you’ve bought. Sometimes the nicest thing to do is to let someone else be nice.


Eh… That’s honestly kind of passive/aggressive. A better solution is spend on something both of you can enjoy together.


If this is pro I’d hate to see amateur advice.


Or give it away. A place I volunteer at gives us $20 gift cards a couple times a year. I just pass them along.
