Hating gifts

Question:

My wife’s parents love bringing us gifts usually in the form of groceries each time they visit weekly. Is it better to follow “soneh matanos yichyeh”, or put that aside for the sake of kibud av v’em and making them feel good about what they’re doing?

Answer:

You should be very grateful to your parents for the weekly groceries they bring and tell them how much you appreciate the huge effort. You are very lucky to have such devoted parents.
