Maybe, they could not afford to give you a better gift. Accept the gift you were given.

Probably were extras and wanted to just give it away to just get rid of it.

Maybe they couldn't afford to give you the spoons and knives too, but will get those later. It's an odd gift, though, by itself.

I use forks much more than spoons.
Maybe they thought you would to.

Twelve place settings is a common standard setting. Usually you can get four, six, eight ot twelve. Why you only got forks i dont know. Maybe they gave the spoons and knives to other people. Were they possibly heirlooms one of your elderly family members were splitting amongst family?
