Sil got DH a family photo package present for his birthday. Nice present because we have a young dc. But it's in the city thats near to her and mil and an hour and a half away from us. She also has said to arrange it with her when we go because she wants to be in the photos. AIBU to think that's quite cheeky of her?

Not really no. I think it's a nice gift. You can all go out to dinner after.

I think that's a lovely gift to be honest. It is a 'family' photo package after all.

Plus she doesn't have to be in all of them.

I think it's a bit shit.

PuppyMonkey Mon 12-Aug-19 12:59:57

Not so much cheeky as a bit, erm, weird.confused

Maybe she means just one or two shots, but mostly it will be you, DH and DC?

Even though its near to her and not us? Isn't it cheeky to dictate terms of a present? She hasn't given dh it yet, just told him that's the gift. I assume as a way to make sure she is in the photos?

A bit cheeky and rather self centred for someone else's birthday.
Could of been worse she could have said that you weren't invited

Get the photos done without her 😂😂

It's a really rubbish gift if you have to make a long trip to receive it. Also you might not want her in the photo!

Butchyrestingface Mon 12-Aug-19 13:02:34

Not to my tastes but “cheeky fucker” is a bit strong.

I gather you don’t like this woman?

WorraLiberty Mon 12-Aug-19 13:03:05

I don't know, is it available nearer to where you live?

It's not the OP's gift so it'll be up to her husband if he wants his mother and sister in the photo, which he could well do.

I would think this was weird. A family shoot to me is the family unit- if it was for the wider family why would just she be in your photos? It’s a bit third wheel!

RandomeUsername Mon 12-Aug-19 13:05:25

Can't get the photos done without her, she hasn't given it to dh. She's still holding onto it

isabellerossignol Mon 12-Aug-19 13:05:26

Well she's his family too I suppose. And he does get to benefit if she is paying for a set of photos. And if it's in the city near her I'm assuming she thought you would enjoy visiting.

I don't think it's all that awful but you sound like you don't like her anyway, so if that's the case then it's obviously going to annoy you. If you got on well with her you'd be thinking 'great, a chance to get some family photos and we can socialise afterwards'.

Bornfreebutinbiscuits Mon 12-Aug-19 13:05:36

Well it's supposed to be his photo package and in the nicest way maybe he doesn't want photos with his sister in?

Maybe you don't op 😂😂.

It's not a great gift when it's fully dictated like this

Youmadorwhat Mon 12-Aug-19 13:05:52

I think it’s weird and I also suspect she won the package! And that’s why she has to be in it and it’s with a local photographer 🤣🤣🤣😬🤔

RandomeUsername Mon 12-Aug-19 13:06:09

She does have a form for being quite cheeky, entitled, self centered and demanding. So yeah I'm not her biggest fan

AutumnCrow Mon 12-Aug-19 13:07:26

I think that's a shit present, too.

But it's your husband's crap gift, and his to organise.

ohdearwhatdoido Mon 12-Aug-19 13:07:31

Does it bother your DH that it's so close to her? Does it bother him that she wants to be in the photos?

You'll have to let him lead on this one I think.

mordecaithomas Mon 12-Aug-19 13:07:34

Looooool what if she just wanted in the photos?!

FlapAttack23 Mon 12-Aug-19 13:07:38

You’ll have to pay for the prints I guess too 😂😂

mordecaithomas Mon 12-Aug-19 13:07:46

Isn't wanted in the photos*

FlapAttack23 Mon 12-Aug-19 13:08:01

She will insist the free one is hers

NotAgainKen Mon 12-Aug-19 13:08:07

Er, she's given herself a family photo package with you in it.

Isn't that like giving an Oxfam goat and keeping it in your own garden?
