A woman has taken to TikTok to share her ‘toxic’ mother-in-law’s Christmas card.

Written inside is an ‘invoice’ of ways the woman helped the couple financially during the year after they lost their jobs because of the pandemic

This appears to have been done with a view to explaining why she didn’t get the pair a Christmas gift.

The clip was posted under the title: ‘Here’s one of THOUSANDS of stories.’

A caption over the video, which focuses on the card throughout, reads: ‘Toxic mother in law.

‘Not the first time she’s done this.’

The woman, who posts under the username sageandwine, says in the clip: ‘So this is our toxic mother-in-law.

‘So I just want to preface this video by saying that there is no way you absolutely need to get a Christmas gift or give a Christmas gift.

‘But my mother-in-law, she chooses just to repetitively do this type of behaviour to my husband.

‘Instead of just saying she can’t afford a gift or that she’s given more than enough this last year, she’ll send a card.

‘And the card will say, y’know Merry Christmas, received a big blanket $112.40 Xfinity bill paid.

‘$584.89 on electric bill! $697.29 + gift. Merry Christmas’

The woman continues: ‘Basically she’ll say hey, throughout the year I’ve done things for you guys and y’know she did those things when we lost our jobs due to Covid. 

‘So that was really amazing but she chooses to send a card, basically reminding “Hey you don’t get a gift because I’ve done all these other things.”

‘When she literally could just, I don’t know, not give us one or just wish us a Merry Christmas.’

The video has been liked over 120,000 times, and the comments have been flooded with people who have also taken issue with the mother-in-law’s behaviour.

One wrote: ‘That’s not a Christmas card that’s an invoice’ while others accused the in-law of being ‘petty’.

Another user commented: ‘This is why I picked a bf with dead parents.’
