Obligated to Wear a Gift?

Actress Jennifer Garner,
I don’t know why I couldn’t say her name.>>Jennifer.>>Jennifer Garner definitely knows
how to work the red carpet but she always knows how to
work the carpool line too. And while the actress,
the A-list actress and mom of three is used to rocking designer dresses,
she recently debuted a brand new look. Jennifer posted this picture to Instagram
with the caption, when your 9 year old weaves a 12 foot long scarf
>>On a peg loom for your birthday present, you better #learn
>>Yes mom!>>[APPLAUSE]
>>I love it. So ladies,
have you ever felt obligated to wear or show off someones gift even if
you really weren’t feeling it?>>[INAUDIBLE]
>>All the time.>>Wait, where are you going with that
cuz we’ve gifted you some stuff to wear.>>[LAUGHTER]
>>Well, actually, I get a lot of fan gifts and I appreciate
everybody when I go to my comedy shows and afterwards they hand me stuff,
and I appreciate it. The only thing I don’t like is if they
hand me food stuff, because I don’t know.>>If you don’t what’s in it.>>Yeah.
>>But if it’s clothing and things like that, they want you to take
a picture, I be like, [LAUGH], okay.>>[LAUGH]
>>And especially the artwork. Thank you for the artwork, everybody. There’s a lot of paintings, yes,
a lot of great artists out there.>>Keep perspective.>>A lot of them look just like her!>>Yeah, yeah, that’s abstract art,
that’s what I say.>>Yeah,
I do think though when it comes to kids, I feel like you have to rock whatever
it is that they’re making for you. I used to have this weird obsession with
folding dollar bills into like hearts,>>Oregamis.>>Yes, oregamis, yes, very Asian of me.>>[LAUGH]
>>And Momma Mai, she would always take them to Michael’s
and she would put earring post in them and wear them as earrings and I felt so proud. It was really, really cute.>>That’s awesome.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>That’s sweet.>>It was really cute.
>>You’re a mom?>>Yeah, I never felt obligated to put
something up that my children have made for me. And I would wear a Barney
suit if my kids wanted me to. Yeah, I never feel like I have to,
it’s because I just want to. But the only thing is,
I can’t do it if adults do it. I don’t know why, I have a couple
of members in my expanded family, I’m not gonna say their names, but they’re not really the best gift
givers when it comes to clothes.>>Who you talk about?>>I’m not gonna say, I’m not gonna say
it, I’m not gonna get it [CROSSTALK].>>Tell us gift.>>No no,
don’t know because they watch the show.>>[LAUGH]
>>However, what I do do because I feel so bad, I still have the gift
in the Christmas box. And I just put it in my closet, and every
now and again I walk in and I look at it, and I’m like. You know like how,
>>[LAUGH]>>You can’t tell us what it is, like just a little.>>No.
>>Is it any thing I’ve given or any of the girls?>>No, you guys are amazing
>>Too long.>>You guys are awesome.>>My God,
I went to Tam’s house a week ago.>>Yeah.
>>And she had, from season one, I gave her a box of 365 prayers, one to pull
every day, to have a different word for your day, and you had it front and
center in your mantle.>>Yes, because it’s amazing.>>You’re a great gift giver.>>That’s so nice.>>I keep it. I just may not use it.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>You have ever feel obligated to wear something, you got as
a gift even though you hated it. And here’s what you had to say. @PeacePavillo said, absolutely,
in my Adrienne voice.>>[LAUGH]
>>But like Jeannie, I can find a way to style anything.>>All right.>>That’s a skill.>>@MissyG said, yes,
all you have to do is wear it in front of the person once, and then you’re good! That’s actually a good one! And @Jamie5436 said, nope! If I don’t like it, I’m not wearing it. I may customize it to my
liking if the person asks, I’m gonna just tell them,
I wore it last week. But I really didn’t. My bad.
>>[LAUGH]>>[APPLAUSE]>>Okay. I agree.>>That is hysterical.>>I agree.
>>You do, you won’t do it.>>No.
>>I’d be like no I’m not [INAUDIBLE]>>You won’t force me to wear something I won’t wear.>>Well, now you know. Now you know. Don’t give it to Loni cuz
she don’t wanna wear it.>>[LAUGH]

  5. My mom used to get me gifts & said โ€œif you donโ€™t like it let me know & Iโ€™ll take it backโ€ but I always felt obligated to say I liked it because itโ€™s from the person I love the most โค๏ธ

  6. My best friend found out that I never wear what she bought me cause I just never like it, and now she's never wants to choose a gift for me anymore, she wants me to say what I want as a gift ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ

  7. If I had kids & it was a gift from them then definitely. Same goes for little cousins & nieces/nephews but I just won't do it if it's from anybody else. I just won't do it. Especially since some people buy you clothes based on what they want you to look like knowing very well that it's not something you like.

  8. Jeannie reminded me of when I was younger abd watched Lamb Chop's Play Along. My parents checked out an origami book from the library. We had fun. I think Im gonna do that for my kids very soon.

  9. if i don't like it i am definitely not wearing. I might try it on to see if i could make it work but if i can't I just won't wear something i don't feel comfortable in. That's why i prefer gift cards I don't want people to waste their money! But i definitely appreciate the action and effort!

  10. My mom and grandma used to always wear the jewelry I made them as a kid….but they looked ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฃ ๐Ÿ˜

  11. Tamera always shading her in laws . When its not their cooking , its their jokes and now their gifts ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  12. They read my comment! I am MISSY G ๐Ÿ’™!!!!! (3:26)… Ladies of The Real, you made my day and my week! All of you are my real life goals with my real life dream job, so happy to have been shouted out! Thank you for that ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  13. Got flashbacks of when jeannie got a coupon or something and tamar was calling her ungrateful ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  14. I say it depends on who gave you the gift. From children, 100% yes.ย  But coworkers, associates, neighbors, no, no obligation at all.

  15. Adrienne, I love you, big supporter of your husband's music but please, must every motherly related topic follow a glance in Tamera's direction stating "you're a mum/mom?" I don't know why I am triggered by this but every time it bugs me lol.

  16. I love it when Jeannie mentions Michaels!! Itโ€™s such a great family craft store! Great place to work!

  17. I legit canNOT stand the real fans and yall comments..well most of yall..you mfs are like undercover haters there's always so much negativity and complaints about every little thing. What are yall? 12? like stfu & just enjoy the show!

  18. i just wear it in the house or as pajamas or when i'm walking my dog lol …or you could say it doesn't fit right or just wear it once in front of them

  19. I got a purse for xmas, it was beautiful BUT the strap was faux fur, I was like "hell nah" so I went to the mall and exchanged it for something I actually liked๐Ÿ˜ I just told them I lost the receipt and I had no problem exchanging it.

  20. I love you Adrianne but itโ€™s โ€œaskedโ€ not โ€œaxedโ€ Iโ€™m sorry just a Pet peeve

  21. Might be "tacky" but I include the receipts to my gifts. I'm not a narcissist- it's not important to me that the person wears what I have them but that they have something they like and will use

  22. Adrienne, I LOVE the braid that youโ€™re wearing on this episode. Would you consider doing a hair tutorial on how to re-create this braid and youโ€™re Absolutely Adrienne YouTube channel? We havenโ€™t had any hair tutorials yet. PLEEEEEEEASE!!!!!? ๐Ÿ˜˜Besitos ๐Ÿ’›

  23. someone give me a gift I am wearing it Doesn't matter it's not my style or cheap..it's the thought and consideration!

  24. Good mom! When I was young (10 or under) I saved my bday money to go get my mom a mother's day present. I went to Macy's and bought her a heart necklace. She NEVER wore it. Still hurts.

  25. I think it's different with gifts from children. I'll definitely wear whatever they make for me because it always seems like such a precious gift. A few years ago my little niece made me a bracelet for Christmas … it has big bright coloured beads and glitter all over it lol … but I love it so much and I remember her little face when she gave it to me. I wear it whenever she comes to stay and on my wedding day I had it wrapped around my bouquet. My hubby also has a big Superman sticker on his travel bag that he takes to work that she made for him which he always keeps on there and it melts my heart ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–
