My sister keeps suggesting that she will share the cost of buying someone a gift. I think it’s just because she doesn’t want all the bother of shopping for a gift, wrapping it, getting a card and then sending or delivering it.
Queenie, what’s a polite way to refuse to go in together on a gift?—Annoyed brother
Try to shop for the gift before your sister approaches you about it, and then tell her you have already purchased the gift. You can also give her a suggestion as to what gift she might want to give the person.
